All the Bizarre Things Models Say They’d Never Eat

All the Bizarre Things Models Say They’d Never Eat

After years spent writing about health, entertainment, fashion, and celebrities, I barely bat an eyelid when I hear about a model’s neurotic eating habits, but a peek inside the restrictive diet of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen left me kind of gobsmacked earlier this month. They don’t touch stuff like caffeine, dairy, sugar, gluten, iodized salt, even fruit, for the most part. The biggest no-no, though? A food group called nightshades, that includes delicious things like tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, and eggplants.

Other models such as Miranda Kerr are pretty public about their aversion to non-organic produce, and I’ve personally seen a runway star backstage peel an apple, only to eat the skin (WHY!?) and leave the actual fleshy part, and stories about editorial models dieting on tissues are infamous across the fashion industry.

Personally, I find these bizarre eating habits completely fascinating, but surely not all of my favorite models are 100 percent nuts when it comes to their diet, right? To find out, I asked 10 models—from huge runway stars to buzzy Insta-famous women and health-obsessed fitness models—to dish on the one food that they would never eat.

Iska Lawrence

Would never eat:"Eggplant. I associate it with pretty inedible things for some reason. I’m not a fan of oysters either; they have an alien-esque look for me, thus I find them hard to swallow!"

Would never eat: "McDonald's."

Nina Agdal

Would never eat: "I don’t know, I would eat a lot of things. Worms; I wouldn’t be like Bear Grylls and go out in nature and eat worms. I would be like, I’m just going to starve, thanks."

Elle Macpherson

Would never eat: "Never say never! But I do focus on an alkaline way of eating, which includes lots of fruit, vegetables, and plant food and less red meat and dairy."
