Give it Your All

Watching what you eat is important because it helps you to be healthy; it also helps you look your best. Adriana suggests eating a lot of protein. She eats things such as egg whites, oatmeal, and tofu. She also loves berries that are packed with antioxidants.

She explained to the Daily Telegraph that she stops eating solid foods about 7 days before the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and begins to drink a gallon of water every day. Many people felt that Adriana Lima’s diet was unhealthy and bad for young women to look up to. But she explained herself to E! News saying, "I know it's very intense but ... I just have an athlete's mind and I appreciate doing this thing," she said. "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."
Spend time with kids
