Victoria’s Secret models represent a wide range of nationalities, ethnicity and colors and these hot bodied ladies are killing it on the runways of the American coveted lingerie company.
As perfect as the Victoria’s Secret models bodyweight might look, it takes a lot of intense workouts, healthy diet and discipline to get that figure and you might be wondering how they manage to pull it off. While you enjoy glorious niceties as Thanksgiving dinner, the VS models will be caught in the middle of shape-up crunch time and here’s what their diet looks like.
Victoria’s Secret Models Diet
For starters, these models can’t afford to eat like the most of us. To look like any of the Victoria’s Secret Models, you have to give up your huge appetite if you have one, then stick to some very healthy diet like lots of protein-based foods especially lean proteins, vegetables, fruits and little carb. Processed carbohydrates, a certain type of bread and gluten are not included in their diet. Alcohol is also not a frequent part of VS models diet.
This is not to say they don’t enjoy an occasional cheat day to balance off the somewhat strict routine. However, they have to eat healthily majority of the time as far as modeling is concerned. For instance, Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima once shared that she stayed on a no solids diet several days before a runway show.
According to her, protein shakes that include powdered egg is part of the diet routine.
Also, supermodels like Gigi Hadid is considered a protein fiend as she loves “easy go-to” meals like scrambled eggs, toast with orange juice and coffee to wash it all down. Some of us probably wouldn’t survive on that little, but she does.
Besides that, here’s what a typical daily meal for Victoria’s Secret models looks like:
For Breakfast: egg white omelette with spinach and turkey OR green smoothie with chia seeds
For Lunch: brown rice (which is a healthy choice because it has fibre) with chicken salad.
For Dinner – grilled salmon, green vegetables, boiled potatoes, plus cucumber and tomato salad.
As a Beverage: yoghurt, as it is a belly fat burner, and protein shakes is a prefered healthy option.
For Snacks – almonds, berries and nut butter.
Not only do Victoria’s Secret models eat a healthy diet, but they also frequent the gym and not just any kind of exercise. There is usually an expert trainer to guide and motivate them to take their workout routines seriously. These exercises help to tone up the model’s physiques and reaches hidden muscles. Believe it or not, a ballet dance workout is part of the exercises of some of Victoria’s Secret models.
Other workouts include:
1. Kicks, jumps and squats in order to keep their legs long and limber.
2. Yoga comes in handy as a not too intense workout as well as a way of spicing up their flexibility and strength.
3. Just when you think boxing is totally out of the picture these VS models can kick your a** in the ring if it gets down to it.
4. Jumping rope is an addition as well as running on the beach and strength training.
The truth is, there isn’t any uniform workout regimen for these Victoria’s Secret Angels.
Height and Weight Requirement
When you think Victoria’s Secret models, the perfect body weight and height comes to mind; from hips, waist, thigh circumference, bust etc…How does the average size ladies around the world begin to compete with these models who are genetically blessed with towering heights of between 5feet 8inches to 6 feet 9inches? envy much.
In other words, any height below that is definitely considered a petite model, which is unacceptable in the VS world.
As for Victoria’s Secret models’ weight, the girls must meet specific measurement in order to model designer clothing and lingerie; and that means an hourglass figure of 60 kg or 132 pounds is definitely the first choice.
The most desired models by VS are those who possess body measurements such as a 34 inches hips, a 24 inches waist and a 34 inches bust. Although they make exceptions on some occasions if the model has more desirable features especially a beautiful face
Besides the aforementioned requirements, neat glossy hair, smooth skin, and toned body are part of the requirements. Of course, age is a top consideration.
According to casting directors, the company look out for models with longevity, therefore women of at least 18 to 30 are prefered. Older models only stand a chance if they already have a solid reputation in the industry.
Other important features required of VS models is a clear slim face, full lips high cheekbones, small nose and general chiseled appearance.
Talk about a multimillion-dollar industry that spends as much as $22 million to arrange the annual Victoria’s Secret show. VS models are expected to be raking in a whopping sum for wearing the Million Dollar Bras down the runway.
However, these girls take home an average of $100,000 to $1 million annually for their efforts. Not as much as you might expect, therefore these girls have to do a lot more than walk the runway or feature in magazines to be among highest paid supermodels like Gisele Bündchen, Tyra Banks, Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Kendall Jenner and the rest on the list.
Let’s say, Victoria’s Secret is their route to shine and launch a business of their own.
