Do all models watch what they eat to stay fit?

My friend is a part time model and she's always conscious the things to eat just to stay fit. She even eat a little or just nothing at all. Do all models watch what they eat just to stay fit? I thought they say its in the genes that some people don't get fat even if they eat so much. More like they have faster metabolism. It can disrupt her eating patterns if she eats only a little or nothing at all. This is bad. What do you think?

I think models need to take care of their diets as it is the requirement of their jobs, to be slim and in hourglass body shape. Only a lucky few who remain slim despite being gluttony. It is in their genes. Trying to cut down foods will only deprive our bodies of the necessary nutrients which will reduce our body defense system. Don't wait until the last hour when we are sick and hospitalized when all foods seems tasteless. Eat when we still have the appetite as we never know when we lose our appetites and it will be a journey of no return.

It is well known in the modelling industry that models will develop eating disorders in order to stay stick thin. Until attitudes change then I guess girls will continue to starve themselves in the name of fashion and beauty. It is very worrying, though, when you can see someone doing this to themselves and perhaps it is time to try and see if you can persuade her to eat something.

I can't speak for oll models, but I do know that a model must meet a certain standard. and, a majority of them have eating disorders because they don't know how to properally take care of themselves. A person can have no restrictions on how often or h what they eat, alargies aside. Yet its what you do. If you eat a large meal then go streight to bed, chances of fat accumlicating is highly likely because sleep slows down the process of diagestion. But if you keep a high motablsiom you'll build muscle, burn fat, and stay healthy.

i think that most of the people, i mean models do this and they just takecare of their personality and it is a must for them to do this as to survive in this field of modeling, as you say may be there are a few models who dont do this and its in their genes or heridity. but yes it is really difficult to diet and give up things what we like to eat the most and it is a great task to do but may be they get useto to this.

There is a thin line between eating to stay health and trim and an eating disorder. Many of these girls do not walk this line well and often end up on the eating disorder side. There are a few designers who are finally realizing this and using the models that are a little healthier in their weight (like a size 2 or 4, instead of a 0). Your friend should make sure that she is eating something everyday. The body requires a certain amount of protien or otherwise it will start attacking its own muscle.
