Washington: Erin Heatherton has revealed that being a Victoria’s Secret Angel has taught her about maintaining a good and healthy diet.
The 23-year-old model asserts that she now understands that women need to eat healthily and exercise regularly to look good.
‘‘I’ve learned a lot about diet in my years of being an Angel. A mistake a lot of girls make is that they work out but don’t eat enough. If you’re not eating enough, all the work outs are doing, it’s not going to show,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
‘‘You could be doing a million butt lifts, but your butt is not going to get any bigger because there is nothing to build on. Your body needs food to make that happen,’’ she added.
Heatherton, who recently walked the catwalk in the lingerie show for the fifth time, said that she gets up at 6am to start with her exercise schedule in order to perfect her curves.
‘‘I work out twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed. I’ll start with half an hour of running and then some yoga to stretch everything out so everything is warm,” she said.
“In the evening I do butt lifts. It’s important to be fit, but you shouldn’t get too skinny. You need to have curves,’’ she added.
