Tyra Banks says she doesn`t believe in diets

Washington: America`s Next Top Model host Tyra Banks has revealed that she doesn`t believe in diets and prefers her body with "some ass".

Banks told US magazine at a private screening and fashion show for the new cycle of America`s Next Top Model on August 7 that models, herself included have better things to do than getting obsessed over their weight, despite all the apparent pressures to stay a certain size.

She said that she dismisses the idea of `dieting` and said that she actually prefers her body to be a little curvier.

The 39-year-old model said that after she lost weight a couple of years ago, it changed the way she ate and thought.

It was after that she looked at her picture and realized that she didn`t look good and knew that she needed "some ass".
