On practicing ‘intermittent fasting’:

I always leave 12-14 hours between my last bite of food at night, and my first bite of food in the morning. I guess you could call this intermittent fasting – but I have never really been a big breakfast person. If I eat a large breakfast I find I am starving again in a couple of hours, and in need of a nap. Leaving time for my system to wake up makes me feel good, so I do it. I am not religious about this though; if I wake up ravenous/jetlagged, I eat. Basically, if the sun is up, I eat. If it is dark, I don’t.

On drinking over a gallon of water a day:

First thing I drink about two liters of water. This habit took a bit of training – but it is the best! I aim for just over one gallon of water a day, and if I hit two liters first thing, it puts me on track for the day. Plus it helps to re-hydrate you after a night of sleeping. I sweat a lot during the day from my training, and make sure I get enough electrolytes through Himalayan sea salt and other foods.

On not being a fan of protein:

Every meal, the hero is vegetables. I eat a lot of them every single day. I hate our societies obsession with protein – if we were as obsessed with hitting our fiber needs, I believe the diseases of affluence would be greatly reduced. With obesity rates skyrocketing, I wonder if people will start to make the connection that getting your protein in is killing them slowly. Having said that; I do make sure that with each meal I am having a serving of tofu or beans. No steaks here – and I am yet to die of a protein deficiency! Or yet to meet any other vegans with one either for that matter…

On ‘indulging’ in sweet potatoes and vegan ice-cream:

Finally, if I crave it, I eat it! I don’t subscribe to the cheat meal thing, as it tends to perpetuate the notion that some food is “naughty” and that you are “naughty” for eating it. If I want some vegan ice cream, or sweet potato fries I go for it. Life is short and food rules!

Is this the model that uses angles and poses to appear even thinner than she is on instagram? I’m choosing my words very carefully because I’m trying to be kinder. so simply stating my personal taste, this is not it at all. Somewhat related, I’m not a breakfast person either but for different reasons. I can only eat like 2 hours after I wake up. If I try before that, even milk or juice, I’ll throw up. I have been like this all my life. I have IBS and I’m not sure if it’s related, but it’s like my digestive… Read more »

I think you’re thinking of Elsa Hosk, but maybe this girl too. I avoid instagram unless necessary so IDK.
I assume she didn’t mean for her quote on only eating during the daytime to be taken literally, but it was a pretty dumb thing to say. I visited northern Finland in January to see the northern lights and there was 5 hours of daylight, just saying…

Both she and Elsa Hosk seem to do a lot of strategic posing/possible editing of their instagram photos because they never look as thin in the paparazzi photos.
Quite sad to think that even with their success and thinness, they still don’t feel good enough.

Ali

The more famous one is Elsa Hosk but Bridget does the same thing. EX: all the pictures with her ribs popping out – she’s doing that on purpose. You don’t see Romee with her ribs ever, and Romee is way thinner. If you suck in and push your ribcage up/out your ribs will show like that. Taylor Hill just posted a picture of her stretching her arms and her ribs showed and Taylor is not anywhere near underweight.

I know what you mean with IBS. It is the same for me. I cannot eat in the morning and I get nauseous if I do. I stayed pretty hungry during my night shifts. The problem with my IBS though is, that if I do not eat, a big meal will basically put me in total pain. Very bad thing at work. So what I do is now, I use intermittent fasting. I only eat a yogurt and a bit of fruit compote for the sugar levels at work to prevent my digestion from going “booooom!”. Cannot happen at work.… Read more »

Interesting, similar symptoms but different type of IBS. I don’t “have to go”, Like, ever. It’s like everything is dead here. Probiotics helped for a while but then my life got more stressful and they stopped working. For me it’s just gas that won’t come out (“my friends are like “just fart already”, they think I’m embarassed but I can’t) which then causes really bad cramps. But I also have to practice intermittent fasting due to the vomiting thing. I’ll just try to have a good mid-morning snack but breakfast isn’t an option. Stupid syndrome!

It changes with me. My digestion is a roller coaster. Exactly the same for my sister as well. Once a year colonoscopy as a genetic test indicated some markers for Crohn’s and my great grandmother suffered from it as well.
It is just annoying. I dread it being invited somewhere and there is food. Or restaurants… 🙁

CarrieD

I’m sure there’s a genetic component, maybe not for everyone but fot a lot of us. My mother died when I was a kid so I never really got to discuss IBS with her but I remember she had to take laxatives. And now I can rarely go without them (which is really bad but after 6 days there really is no other option). Well, there are worse things… But yeah, annoying to say the least!

This latest crop of VS girls are even more duds than their predecessors. I feel like after Ale and Adriana’s time as the head angels the quality of their models went sharply downhill. Candice I never liked but I guess fit the mold well, Lais is very pretty, and Izabel G. has a great figure, but none of them are at the same level like before and now their new crop of replacements are third tier at best. Taylor Hill especially cracks me up everytime I read a quote of hers.

She’s not that thin. Look at candids. Looks more like Gigi Hadid pre weight loss.

while she is obviously underweight, she has a point about the protein obsession. i eat similarly to her… vegan, make sure legumes, lentils, tofu, or tempeh with at least 2 meals. but this girl seems to eat probably 3 cubes of tofu or something. i bet her iron is way low and i hope she takes b12 supplement… she def looks deficient in calories and general nutrients. ps. models need to stfu about their “health” regimens–all they’re doing is fueling the billion dollar diet industries. who knows if they get a cut of that dough. and i’d say it’s safe… Read more »

I used to have a body like hers. I was very happy, although I didn’t have friends, until my parent had me forced into anorexia therapy.
That f–ked me up. They basically don’t listen to anything you say and overweight women pity you and accuse you of making others suffer. Or else, the male explanation is that you are-or want to be- a sexual object.

Is a lot of pressure to defend yourself. In fact, I failed.

What… are you trolling?
I think I remember you once said you were overweight… did you gain weight after that?

MichelleM.

That actually makes sense. a lot of anorexics who recover become overweight afterwards. the reason being starvation significantly lowers the rate which you burn off calories. this effect can last a while. so when they start eating even a few hundred calories more they can balloon up. ive read where women just eating 1200 calories would gain 30 lbs in a month or less. it can have the opposite effect to where your metabolism goes into overdrive and you burn calories like crazy but the majority gain weight very easily after. think about it in nature if you had a… Read more »

When you say you failed, does that mean you still see this as ideal? If so, you may still need help to reconfigure your mindset (I know talk is easy). And I’m the first to say “who cares what men think?” but since we’re on the subject, I’ve had discussions with male friends about women like this, and this isn’t the majority’s ideal either. There are of course men who will be drawn to this type of figure. But being viewed as a sex object, for me that would be more like Kate Upton. Hope I’m not offending anyone who… Read more »

very true. i asked my boyfriend and he said” i don’t like skinny” however i consider myself thin. what he means is he doesn’t like straight up and down women with no shape and bones poking out. men and women are programmed to be attracted to healthy bodies, common sense. bridget does not look healthy, lais riberio does, taylor hill does. basically healthy is attractive and most people are not healthy underweight and pretty much you can tell. same goes for overweight. when men say they like curves they mean curves not a big belly. the good( and bad actually… Read more »

Her body doesn’t look enviable to me at all. No curves, no muscle and her face isn’t that special either. And skipping breakfast, really? Of course you will feel hungry again after a while because your body NEEDS food. I am so tired of models giving nutrition advice when clearly they have no idea what they are talking about.

Guest
Leighton

While people may not like the hadids and kendall walking vsfs, they make more sense to me than this one. She is skinny, but she comes over kinda whiny and her face really isn’t that attractive to me…

Aga
Guest

Yeah, we see that you skip protein. I am sure drinking tons of water is not so healthy, considering that she is freak’ tiny. She should eat that Himalayan salt in bulk, or else she will ruin here electrolyte balance. Wtf… As a doctor, I am speechless.
PROTEIN IS HEALTHY. For muscles, for your immune system, to help you feel full and satisfied, no, it does NOT contribute to obesity. It changes your body composition to less fat, more muscle.

MichelleM.
Guest

True she needs some
Protein lol. Must be why her skin is so yucky and dull looking. Btw 95 percent of the time these weird vegan diets are covering up an eating disorder( not talking about regular vegans who eat fairly regularly).

Ali
Guest

She drinks protein shakes if you see her full blog post, which is why I think her quote is strange and contradictory. She also eats beans and nuts daily. She probably gets enough protein, but not enough calories. Even if you eat 100grams of pure protein a day thats only 400 calories if you don’t eat anything else.

MichelleM.

Well I hate your obsession with being as thin as a stick. She looks awful

Not sure exactly what she meant about drinking 2 litres “first thing” – it’s not the volume of water that is a problem since that amount corresponds with the commonly recommended daily intake. However, too much of water over too short a period can also be dangerous or at the very least extremely unhealthy. That is unless its truly motivated by high intensity exercise etc

Girl…what? Protein is extremely important for muscle growth and repair. IDK if it’s just me but this sounds like an eating disorder of some sort.

Gen

She means animal protein, but she doesn’t articulate herself well because VS likes their new models to be untroubled by the intellectual pursuits of life.

And she also doesn’t articulate herself well because she STARVING.

One more thing, is there a way to send a complaint to VS? I think they are extremely irresponsible for hiring models like her. Those hip bones are so thin-spo, it should be forbidden.

Ali

Don’t shop there if it upsets you. I stopped shopping there years ago and it has nothing to do with their models and how they look. It amazes me that so many women want to go on an angry protest about Victoria’s Secret models being too skinny and not once does it cross their minds to stop shopping there.

Aga

Never shopped there my entire life, and I don’t intend to

Vegetables have protein too, she’s talking BS. Is sad that persons like her give vegans such a bad name.

Ali

Nothing wrong with being vegan, but she sounds like she has some type of an e d because who eats just vegetables? How is sweet potato a treat meal? I agree with her on fiber though, most people aren’t getting enough, but she cooks weird things like vegetables in coconut oil and calls that a meal. What’s wrong with quinoa, brown rice, sweet potato? Etc? Also why so much coconut oil, she could be getting healthy fats from whole coconut, plant milks, nuts, seeds, avocado. She sounds like she has issues with her weight and does the vegetable only diet… Read more »

Only vegetables is not a starvation diet (ever heard of raw vegans?)… but you would need huge amounts of them to hit the daily caloric needs, which she’s obviously not doing.

Ali
Guest

Raw vegans don’t eat just vegetables. They either eat high carb (most calories coming from fruits like fully raw Kristina) or high fat (calories coming from nuts avo seeds). Bridget’s diet is a starvation diet. Look at the food pictures she posts salad with only no starchy vegetables – this is not healthy.

Agatha
Guest
Agatha

Yes, sorry, that’s what I meant, nuts, fruits and vegetables. Anything raw.
I didn’t mean to say that her diet is not a starvation diet, just that a properly planned raw diet could be healthy (even if unnecessary, IMO)

Ali
Guest

Just to clarify. I’m not saying the salad itself is unhealthy but the fact that it sounds like that’s what she mostly eats in a day.

Many vegans are merely eating disorders in denial. Veganism is (often) orthorexia in disguise.
Also, what’s wrong with quinoa, you ask? It’s disgusting, along with coriander😀

false. ethical veganism–look it up.

Yup. And I guess stella is not a fan of indigineous/ethnic foods, but it’s ok I know people who think European foods are disgusting. Just don’t appreciate it when people think their Eurocentric point of view is better.

I find it depressingly ironic that increased protein is what’s believed to be the reason why people evolved larger brains. And, for what? So people like her can have the thought and the ability to express how unimportant they think protein is.

When your thoughts on food get this irrational you should usually wake up, but instead she’s out there telling people this nonsense. I think we all know excessive meat consumption and lack of fiber contributes to certain cancers, but when you’re about to cut a food group (obv if you want to cut animal by products it’s fine) and you’re NOT doing it as a temporary thing, then there’s the problem. Eating everything in moderation (well, except maybe transfats and refined sugar) should be fine.
