We had quite a debate last time I posted the cover of Tyra Banks on the cover of Shape Magazine. Their PR team was kind enough to send me some quotes from her upcoming interview. No mention on whether or not these pictures were photoshopped. Although many of INO’s readers have said they specifically heard that the shoot was not. Read below to see what Tyra has done to get back into shape.
On her food mission:
“I want everyone to eat healthy foods.”
On how she has changed her eating habits:
“Sometimes the only thing in my kitchen when I got home at night was Tang and microwave popcorn, so that was my dinner.”Today, she eats plenty of fresh fruits (her favorites: mango and papayas) and salads with chicken, shrimp, or other protein, and she snacks on crudités with onion dip. She recently hired a part time chef to help her out in the evenings… . “He makes meals and leaves them for me when I get home,” she says.
On making the decision to become an healthy eater:
“I realized I needed to take better care of myself, and I knew this would be the best way to do that.”
On her workout routine:
“Whole months went by when I didn’t work out,” she admits. “Months! But then I’d get on a kick and become really motivated and do three miles every day on the treadmill for weeks.” “Now I’m much more diligent,” she says. “I do treadmill intervals – ” I mix walking and running. Or I just run outside.”
