She Doesn't Feel Pressure To Lose Weight

When you are a model, specifically a swimsuit model, there's a lot of pressure to maintain a slim figure and to lose weight. However, Refaeli tells Shedyourweight.com that she doesn't fall victim to those pressures. "I don't feel the need to be super skinny, but being in shape is important. But even if I wasn't in this industry I would still want to look after myself and be healthy and keep my body in good condition," she says.

While Refaeli doesn't put pressure on herself to lose weight, she does still commit to a healthy lifestyle, especially when she has a shoot. "If I have a major shoot or fashion show coming up and I want to look my best, then I'll spend a little extra time working out or I'll stick to eating salads and chicken for a few days. I would never go on some crazy fad diet or eat anything weird to get thinner – it's just not good for your body," she says to Shedyourweight.com.

Refaeli tells Shedyourweight.com that she doesn't follow a specific diet, and just tries to eat healthy. "I don't diet and I don't have an eating plan, but I like to eat healthily. I don't deny myself anything and there's nothing I wouldn't eat. I like desserts – I like food full-stop, but I exercise and I'm young, so everything keeps in check." Refaeli also condemned fad diets to POPSugar.com, saying, "I would never go on some crazy fad diet or eat anything weird to get thinner — it is just not good for your body."
