Adriana Lima has publically advised teenagers not to starve themselves or only drink liquids whilst dieting. Victoria's Secrets model Adriana Lima is usually famous for strutting down the catwalk but has made a public plea this week for girls not to live off liquids when attempting to lose weight.
Talking to ET Canada on Thursday (10 Nov 2011), she said: "Those teenagers out there, don't go starving yourself or only drinking liquids. Don't do that please." This statement was in order to retract what she had previously said earlier this week that in the run-up to the annual shows, she works out twice a day and drinks only protein shakes for nine days. She had told The Daily Telegraph previously: "No solids at all so you dry out, sometimes you can lose up to eight pounds just from that." However now she is taking all that back. Talking of her previous comments, Lima states: ""I have my Starbucks coffee right there ... it was a misunderstanding. I know it's very intense but ... I just have an athlete's mind and I appreciate doing this thing. It's not that I do crazy diets throughout the year. I just do it for this particular thing. After this show, I become normal again."
Adriana Lima is mum to two-year-old Valentina and wife to Marko Jaric. She is currently being seen promoting the new Victoria's Secret range on the fashion runway.
