Answer on What diet should i use if i want to be a model?

Models actually have muscle. Most of it is airbrushed off though. Pretty much you just stick to a mostly fruits and veggies diet. They don't eat much or any processed foods and beverages. So no sodas, juices, snack bars etc. They stick to about 2-3 servings of whole grain a day and the recommended amount of protein which is 44 grams or about 6 oz of meat for females. They also don't eat stuff like cereal or greasy foods. This would be kinda what a diet of a model would look like

breakfast
serving of oatmeal(not the packaged kind) with fruit mixed in and some honey
low fat yogurt

snack
serving of nuts

lunch
Large salad with some other veggies like tomatoes and cucumbers etc with 3oz of chicken and an oil or vinegar based dressing.

snack
fruit

dinner
3oz of tuna with large serving of veggies and a handful(which is a serving) of wild rice

desert
fruit

Then for exercise you do toning exercises. They use machines but you can use your own body and do push ups, sit ups etc. Just make sure you work every muscle in your body so you prevent injury. For example if you work your stomach and chest you need to work your back and vice versa or you will get injured later on.
They have personal trainers to tell them all this so You need to get one if you are really serious about this. Also you do about an hour of intense cardio. So fast pace biking or running or the elliptical etc.

edit
whoever is saying that models don't eat are very misinformed. Actually most models are very healthy. Those skinny ones you see that look anorexic are actually altered by pro anorexic sites. They photo shop an anorexic body to a models head and praise that form as being beautiful vs her normal body. If you look at Andriana Lima you will see that she is pure muscle. You can't see her stomach in this pic but just look at her arms. That is all airbrushed away when they take pictures for vs.

That is what a real model looks like. What you see on the covers of fashion magazines are fake.
