Skinny vs. Cheese: Cheese Wins

""She sees a nutritionist, who has measured her body's muscle mass, fat ratio and levels of water retention. He prescribes protein shakes, vitamins and supplements to keep Lima's energy levels up during this training period. Lima drinks a gallon of water a day. For nine days before the show, she will drink only protein shakes - "no solids". The concoctions include powdered egg. Two days before the show, she will abstain from the daily gallon of water, and "just drink normally". Then, 12 hours before the show, she will stop drinking entirely."No liquids at all so you dry out, sometimes you can lose up to eight pounds just from that," she says."It's like they're training for a marathon," says Sophia Neophitou, the British fashion editor who is chief stylist for this year's show.""

This is sad, since this is NOT like training for a marathon... since, you know, you eat solids and carbs before and DURING a marathon, and then you accomplish something truly impressive - running 26 miles. But at the same time, this makes me feel better about myself. It's a hell of a lot more honest then Giselle Bunchen saying she eats whatever she wants (lying liar that lies), and honestly - if this is what it takes to look like these freaks - not interested. What's a life without fresh from the oven sourdough slathered in butter, a big hunk of cheese, and a glass of red? So, thanks for being honest, Adriana Lima. And I bet you'd still be just as gorgeous if you ate a couple of cookies and a sandwich. I'd like you more, that's for sure.
