Gigi Hadid Says She "Eats Like A Man" And Used To Have Huge Thighs

August 06, 2015 2 min read

Gigi Hadid is not the typical high fashion model. In a world where super thin is in, she's managed to break through. The 20 year old says that she grew up with 'huge thighs' and loves to 'eat like a man.' Hadid qualified for the Junior Olympics as a volleyball player and says:
"My thighs were huge, they were like rock! Growing up I was really athletic and I had a very athletic body... I had like crazy muscles and I [ate] like a man - more than the man that I eat like now, like a bigger man - and it was crazy but at the time I didn't care what my body looked like, I just wanted to be the best volleyball player I could be so it didn't really matter to me."
She admits that not having a waif like figure made it difficult for her to break into the business but she refused to change who she is. "It's funny," she says, "because once you start to embrace what you have it starts to be what you're known for... I'm kind of the model that everyone thought would always be the Guess, Sports Illustrated girl, then when I started to do high fashion stuff... people were like, "Oh so we can have a girl with like thighs and a butt in a Tom Ford campaign, cool." And then all of a sudden the high fashion people wanted to work with me and that's kind of how it works, if you just embrace yourself other people accept you in the same way." Hadid insists that she always wants to be a good role model and continues to eat as she wants the majority of the time. She does admit, however to going on extreme diets when she needs to slim down for a shoot. Of this practice she says, "You need to find things that are still a healthy way of doing it and for some jobs that's just the best way to do it unless you start six months in advance... I personally would rather do the Master Cleanse for ten days than just eat salad for six months." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mmGq9oTqu0 Hadid's most valuable piece of advice: "You don't have to go with the cookie-cutter version of what people tell you you're supposed to be." She's absolutely correct! Be you, be you they way you want to be you! Are you inspired by Gigi Hadid's understand of herself, her body and the industry?
