The men and women who grace our runways each season, looking somewhat of super humans, do eat.

The common assumption towards thin models these days is that they starve themselves, whilst working out multiple times a day.
Thinking they live off an apple slice and a handful of nuts a day is such a stereotype…
…but yes, some models do unfortunately result to extreme crash dieting before a fashion week, however recently models are exploiting the truth to their ‘cheat days’ and ‘quick breakfasts’.
Many young people, including me, are influenced by the appearance of models; social media supplies a constant feed of what is trending, who is the current ‘It’ Girl, and other ideals involved with models in fashion, leaving many lusting over their Insta-worthy lives. This can be damaging, however because models are now sharing pictures of their avo toast as well as their ‘In-N-Out’ burgers online, fans and followers can have an insight into their non-photoshopped-VSCOcam-filtered lives.
And although the poached eggs pics and green juice uploads can cause a build up of green food on your feed, these uploads could get us one step closer to abolishing unhealthy body images associated with models in fashion.
