Every Novemeber, while the rest of the world is thinking about turkey and stuffing, the Victoria's Secret models are thinking about juice fasts and calorie counting. Last week, the lingerie brand celebrated their annual fashion show and leading up to it, the models celebrated their fine diet skills.
Model Joan Smalls boasted her calorie burning via twitter.

Angel Doutzen Kroes posted acai berry smoothie recipes which included chia seeds, organic dried mulberries, and cocoa powder. But, all eyes were undoubtedly on supermodel Adriana Lima who famously last year admitted to fasting before the big show.
"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."
This year, she took a different approach, however, and posted pics of her post-workout.
Adriana, who gave birth to baby Sienna in September, took up boxing to get in shape for the big show.
And it looks like the workouts paid off. She looked amazing walking down the runway and it was nice to see a little bit of baby love on her belly instead of the sucked in stomach from last year. No word on whether or not she fasted, but chances are, she did the right thing and ate. She admitted to nursing Valentina when she was born, so the good mama instincts surley kicked in and she took care of herself this time around.
