"I would not wish this on my worst enemies!" YouTubers say after trying to survive on the Victoria's Secret models' strict pre-show diet

Ever wondered what Victoria Secret models do to stay slim? Well, the answer might leave you utterly miserable as it's left two YouTubers who chose to try it. Candace Lowry and Michelle Khare decided to try out the grueling diet and they documented the experience.
Candace and Michelle came together to create a video where they spent only four days eating like the famous models. In spite of the warning from a dietician who said
 "I wouldn't recommend this diet to anyone", the women went ahead and by the time they were done, they branded the experience  "not fun, smart, safe, any of the above."
Both women first started out with the two "normal" days of eating for the models, then the last two days they did the grueling pre-show liquid. For the first 'regular diet' day, the ladies started off with a breakfast of oatmeal, egg whites, orange slices and yogurt in little portions. Dinner was a meal of broccoli, quinoa and what looks to be chicken breast, also in little portions. Mind you, they had to combine this diet with rigorous exercising. By the second day, Michelle was already complaining of feeling very tired after a day of training, and by the third day, she was struggling against a terrible mood brought on by starving herself on the liquid diet.

The scariest part of the diet is the pre-show liquid diet which all the models are expected to stick to starting nine days before the show. This diet was made public by VS model, Adriana Lima, in an interview back in 2011. During those nine days, Adriana claimed that she would drink only protein shakes made with powdered egg and a gallon of water, and then two days before showtime she would cut back on the gallon of water per day, and then in the 12 hours leading up to the show would consume nothing at all, not even water.

By the time both ladies were done with the experimental diet, they concluded that it was not something they would wish on their worst enemy. They agreed that the days of  'normal' diet were actually examples of a good base of a healthy diet. However, they advised against the liquid diet.

"This diet is terrible and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemies," Michelle said, adding that the diet caused her to have trouble sleeping and was not sustainable for nine full days.

"It's not a healthy way to lose weight and it's strange to me because... no one as a regular person would go through this and these models are supposed to represent the people buying the clothes," she said.

Below is the video documenting their experience.

What about the concept of doing high intensity cardio exercise and strength training? It burns calories without having to go on a strict diet.

Those diets don't look bad, but taking them whilst exercising rigorously ain't good.

Oh please! look at the arms on those ladies, they clearly need the diet and are just complaining to make themselves feel better. First of all, you don't start that sort of diet suddenly, its a gradual process; secondly your body isn't really tired, it's just flushing out the toxins which is a withdrawal symptom of all the fat and unhealthy things in your body that your brain translates to fatigue (check all the withdrawal symptoms of every vice, fatigue is common); and thirdly they tried it cause they weren't satisfied with how they look and, realising that they couldn't do it, decided to shame it, that's wrong in my opinion. Once again, I hope I have been able to enlighten you all. Ciao.

@Rob (4 May 2017): High intensity workouts do work but at the same time they also make people ripped and rapidly tone muscles. That wouldn't be nice for female models as they have to look sexy and not a bit muscular.It's probably the main reason why diet is way more important than workouts for ladies as compared to men

You just said exactly what I wanted to say. If you notice, its mostly fat women that body shame skinny women, to make themselves feel better. I know for sure that one doesn't need that gruelling diet to be slim. Being skinny comes naturally for some ladies especially those that have fast metabolism. Some people work harder at it, but that's just their determination to stay on their chosen career. Body shaming skinny women is just as bad as body shaming fat women.
