Heidi Klum denies the “Crap” reports that she only eats 900 calories a day and insists she never counted her calories.
The supermodel’s diet was questioned Tuesday afterward Daily Mail reported that during a question-and-answer session on Instagram, in a now-expired story, Klum revealed that she only ate 900 calories a day. Screenshots of the story showed the former Victoria’s Secret Angels fan telling her fans how much she weighs (138 pounds). However, there is no record of her discussing her calorie intake.
After hosting “America’s Got Talent” on Tuesday, Klum corrected the hoaxes in one go video posted to their Instagram stories. The frustrated model condemned the widespread dissemination of lewd stories.
“I just got home and some friends are sending me these articles saying I’m only eating 900 calories,” Klum said. “On the one hand, I want to say that I don’t think I’ve ever had to count my calories in my life.”
The Project Runway alum went on to warn fans not to believe everything they read, before reiterating, “I not count my calories.”
“Someone asked me how much I weigh,” the 50-year-old clarified. “And I got on the scale and showed how much I weighed.
“And I don’t know, people just put things together and just write a lot of crap,” the model continued. “And it’s really sad because there’s no real journalism anymore. People just make up stories. So one person writes it and then everybody jumps on it and it’s really sad because, you know, people read that and think that and maybe follow that, and that’s not good.”
According to the Dietary Guidelines for AmericaAn active 50-year-old woman needs 2,200 calories a day.
Just for reference, some of the women in the NXIVM cult allegedly adhered to a restrictive 800-calorie diet. “I wouldn’t recommend anyone eating anything that’s so calorie-restricted,” said Ali Eberhardt, a registered dietitian who has worked with state eating disorder programs since 2011 Vice. “It sounds very harmful, very worrying.”
in August 2017, women health revealed Klum’s typical diet, courtesy of her nutritionist. It included a breakfast consisting of three organic scrambled eggs with spinach, green peppers, spring onions and parsley, accompanied by a small bowl of fresh fruit and non-dairy tea. For lunch, the model sometimes ate turkey or chicken with basmati rice, roasted vegetables and a salad dressed with olive oil. For dinner, she opted for salmon or chicken served with salad and veggies, and for dessert, the model chose dark chocolate, sherbet, or Greek yogurt.
That equates to about 1,000 calories a day, more or less.
But also the supermodel spoiled and told women health “[I was] I’m going out for dinner this weekend and truffles are in season. I had to have the truffle pizza and the truffle pasta. It’s not that I don’t [indulge]But not all the time.”
