Bella Hadid doesn’t mess around when it comes to diet and fitness. “I’ve been eating hard protein every day, and working out for three hours every day,” she told People. But in reference to people who have noticed the model is looking particularly thin of late, she claimed that she actually lost weight “accidentally.” Wait, what?
“I have lost weight and gained weight,” she told the publication during her fitting for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. “My weight fluctuates so much. I really didn’t mean to [lose weight]. Like, I want boobs. I want my ass back. But it’s not my fault. My weight fluctuates and so does everybody’s and I think that if people are gonna judge, that’s the worst you can possibly do because everybody is different.”
But she admits that she sticks to a serious workout schedule, and is careful about what she eats. “I worked out so hard and everybody is like, ‘Oh, she looks so skinny blah, blah, blah,” she said. “But I think that if you just stick to something you can really achieve so much. … It’s crazy but I think that you know if you set your mind to something I think you can succeed.”
Hadid likes to work out with Rob Piela at Gotham Gym in NYC, and she likes to do so alone. “I literally can’t work out with anybody,” she said. “It has to be me and him. If I am working with other people, I freak out.” Hadid called Piela “really the best,” and credits him for her serious gym body.
After the fitting, Hadid planned to treat herself, she told People. “I’m going to eat pasta right now,” she said. “If you want to have a piece of bread, go have a piece of bread.” But for the most part, she sticks to a high-protein, clean diet, even while she’s traveling (which is much of the time). “I like to eat healthy and not eat crazy plane food,” she said. “I like to still make sure my diet is good and I stay hydrated and stuff. That’s basically all I do.”
In terms of insecurities, Hadid admitted that she has them just like anyone else—including her fellow VS models. “I think every single person in the world has insecurities,” she said. “It’s crazy because I think that when other people look at all of the VS models or all of the girls [who] are walking, they’re like, ‘They’re not human. They don’t have any insecurities.’ But I think every single girl [who’s] going to be walking probably has an insecurity.”
Hadid just wishes she were more like a Kardashian. “I wish my ass was bigger,” she said. There’s always squats.
