Adriana Lima: diet, weight, measurements and hair secrets

Brazilian supermodel Adriana Francesca Lima was born in Salvador, Bahia in 1982. Last year she had her second daughter with husband Marko Jarić, and needless to say, she was soon back to her perfect shape. The model, dubbed The Goddess, doesn't make a secret of the fact that she works really hard to retain her figure. Read on to find out more about Adriana Lima diet, weight, measurements and hair.

Hard work

So let's find out more about more about Adriana Lima diet, weight, measurements and hair, starting with her diet regime.

Black-hair, piercing blue cat-woman eyes, the supermodel last year was named by Forbes as the 4th highest paid model in the world. She is famously one of the favourite Victoria's Secret Angels, but, according to how hard these women work to get in top shape to the annual catwalk, being an Angel is not an easy job.

Recently Adriana was in the mist of criticisms from all fronts after revealing to journalist her diet regime before Victoria's Secret show. Lima, who normally works out every day with a personal trainer, for the three weeks before the show works twice daily: “It is really intense, it’s not really the amount of time you spend working out, it’s the intensity: I jump rope, I do boxing, I lift weights, but I get bored doing that. If I am not moving I get bored very easily.”

But the most controversial part is about what she eats - or rather does not eat. The supermodel stated that her nutritionist, after measuring her body muscle/ weight ratio prescribed her protein shakes, vitamins and supplements to keep energy levels up during training period. However, for nine days before the show, Adriana will drink only protein shakes. No solids at all are allowed, and 12 hours before the show, she will stop drinking entirely.

“No liquids at all so you dry out” said the supermodel, “sometimes you can lose up to eight pounds just from that”

Do not try it at home!

Well, first of all that after the news about her crazy dieting spread around the world, Lima actually clarified that she follows the harsh regime only and exclusively for the nine days preceding the very demanding lingeries show. Adriana Lima is 178cm tall, weighs 56kg and her measures are 86-61-89cm.

Adriana has a lovely light chestnut hair colour, but recently switched for a black that highlights her blue eyes and high cheekbones. But her hair are also particularly dry, therefore she is a big fan of moisturizing hair masks and uses them regularly.
