Washington, November 13 (ANI): Victoria's Secret model Adriaana Lima has publicly asked teenage girls not to live off liquids when they are dieting.
In the run up to the lingerie brand's annual shows, she had said that she works out twice a day and drinks only protein shakes for nine days but now she wants to retract that statement.
"Those teenagers out there don't go starving yourself or only drinking liquids. Don't do that please," Contactmusic quoted her as telling ET Canada.
Earlier she had told the Daily Telegraph that by not taking solids, one could lose up to eight pounds, a statement she now clarifies.
"I have my Starbucks coffee right there ... it was a misunderstanding. I know it's very intense but ... I just have an athlete's mind and I appreciate doing this thing," the Victoria's Secret model 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," she added. (ANI)
