It's the business of every bikini and lingerie model to keep their bodies looking perfect
, even under ungodly circumstances (example: Heidi Klum
on the Victoria's Secret runway three weeks after giving birth). It's harder for some than for others, but apparently Bar Rafaeli has nature on her side.
The model, who appears on this year's Sports Illustrated
Swimsuit Issue, told the New York Daily News
that preparing for the cover shoot was easy: They tell you to eat! Cheeseburgers, ice cream, whatever — just don't lose weight. Me, I didn't even work out. I ate whatever I wanted. It was the best.
I remember reading a magazine a few years back that included an interview with Beyonce
while she was trying to lose weight. She was brutally honest, telling the reporter that she basically wasn't allowed to eat solid food for six weeks and survived on diet shakes that tasted disgusting. At the time, I thought to myself, how refreshing that she's just being straight with us and not preaching about eating vegetables, moderate exercise and leading a healthy lifestyle.
On the other hand, maybe Rafaeli is telling the truth. If so, I like her even less.
