Here’s the story from Daily Mail:
Sports Illustrated model and food lover Chrissy Teigen has revealed how she very reluctantly prepares for her “daunting” bikini shoots. The 27-year-old, who is set to marry John Legend, explained to Cooking Channel TV that she hates dieting “so much I can barely explain without getting angry, but I don’t walk onto the set of a swimsuit shoot without having that whole week prior being a pretty strict regimen.”
She doesn’t elaborate on what the “strict regimen” is, but her Twitter feed and food blog indicate that juice cleanses are behind her swimsuit-ready physique. On December 11, the brunette tweeted a photograph of a large pan of mussels captioned with the description: “Served with bok choy and thai sea bass. Now we say goodbye to food and hello to juice for 1 week!”
Miss Teigen also goes into juice cleansing in more detail on her blog So Delushious! She wrote last October: “It’s honestly not something I push and advocate for, nor do I want to lose all credibility as someone who LOVES food. Trust me, I already got the, ‘you write a food blog and you don’t even eat’ sh-t.
“Would I EVER do a 10-day juice cleanse if I didn’t have to be in a bikini… sometimes only half a bikini… in highly circulated magazines? Holy sh-t, NO. I love my body. Well, I love my in-clothes body. Loving your bikini bod is a whole other ball game. And getting in a bikini when you just completed 3 weeks of not just eating but FEASTING every single day is a little daunting to say the least.”
When she eats a lot she doesn’t put weight on in the right places. “Skinny legs. Skinny (untoned) arms. And a poof in the belly,” she explains.
To gear up for modeling assignments she says that she opts for the ten-day Blueprint moderate cleanse, which consists of three green juices a day, one spicy lemonade, one pineapple, and one cashew milk drink.
“The Blueprint cleanse is great because it provides all-around nourishment. You are consuming around 20 pounds of fruits and vegetables (well however much juice that would make at least) every single day,” Miss Teigen writes.
“I made the decision last night… I would allow small amounts of raw nuts, raw veg, a couple pieces of sashimi in moments of real hunger, avocado. That’s. All. I needed to make the adjustments necessary to keep meeee happy.” She later writes that she was unable to sleep properly because she “missed the feeling of going to bed with a full, heavy belly. That feeling is soothing to me.”
What do you all think of Chrissy’s ‘shape up fast’ methods?
