Do Models Actually Eat?
If you’ve ever watched a runway show, or even just spent any time looking through a glossy magazine or Victoria’s Secret catalog, you probably found yourself wondering how those models get so stick-thin. If you wonder if they eat anything at all… Well, yes, everyone needs to eat to stay alive. But what do they eat, exactly?
Besides the obvious and potentially offensive answers, like “not much,” there are some foods that models prefer to eat more than others. According to one respondent on Quora, models only eat specific foods, and for specific reasons. Carrots are low in calories and high in skin-friendly vitamins. Citrus fruits are loaded with vitamin C. Green tea helps maintain weight and aids digestion. Plain yogurt is high in calcium and good for digestion. Almonds are filling and high in protein. Fruits and vegetables are also high in vitamins and minerals, especially tomatoes, which are also high in skin-friendly antioxidants.
So yes, models eat. But you probably won’t find them gorging on a cheeseburger unless it’s for a Hardee’s commercial.
