Model thin... that's what women THINK they're supposed to be.
It's what social media is telling us. With Photoshop and filters, women tend to be sure the post looks "just right " before posting their picture. They feel like they must look a certain way to be beautiful. This leads to crash dieting, which leads to weight loss with returning weight gain cycles.
Many women fall for the 500 calorie a day diet, juice cleans, or pills to "curb" their appetite; but these are usually just quick fixes and the weight quickly returns, usually with additional pounds. Most importantly, they're extremely unhealthy long term.
What would it be like to have a diet consisting of only 500 calories a day? We sure don’t know and would never want to find out, but former runway model and Instagram celebrity Liza Golden-Bhojwani had this experience.
Back in 2012, Golden-Bhojwani felt an intense adrenaline rush being booked for high fashion runway shows because she was finally the “right size”. However, after fainting one evening, she soon realized the strict diet was affecting her health and could not be maintained.
Read here about Liza and how she learned to be comfortable in her own beautiful skin:
