Tyra Banks Diet

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

As a former supermodel, Tyra Banks knows a few things about the pressures to be thin. After leaving the modeling world and starting her own talkshow, Banks loosened the reins on her diet and gained a purported 30 pounds. After dealing with ridicule from the media and more importantly, after realizing that her health and well-being were suffering from carrying around the extra weight, Banks decided to lose weight - for herself and her health.

Rather than aiming to be stick-skinny like her modeling years, Banks instead set off to get to a healthy weight so that she could still enjoy food and her curves and be a healthy role model to all of the young girls who look up to her.

With the assistance of Heather Bauer, author of the Wall Street Diet, she and Banks created an eating plan that focused on nutritious and satisfying foods rather than fad diet foods and deprivation tactics.

The Tyra Banks Diet is a clean-eating and healthy diet comprised of fresh fruits, veggies, lean proteins and plenty of low-calorie and filling soups. In addition, regular exercise that includes walking and running almost every day.

DIET and NUTRITION

The Tyra Banks Diet includes eating foods that are fresh, whole, healthy and delicious. Some of Banks' favorite foods are mangoes and papayas, salads with grilled shrimp and crudites with onion dip.

With the assistance of Heather Bauer, a personal chef who cooks healthy meals for Banks, they experimented with soups from the book "400 Best-Ever Soups," like seafood bisque or big beef chili.

EXERCISE

The Tyra Banks Diet also includes a strong exercise component. At the prompting of her doctor, Tyra has learned to make exercise a priority in her daily health routine. Therefore, she gets in one hour of cardio every day either through running or walking on the treadmill or outside.

CONCLUSION

From supermodel to talkshow host, Tyra Banks has had her appearance scrutinized under the cameras of the media for years. After gaining 30 pounds in 2007 and 2008, Tyra made a commitment to lose weight in order to be healthy and fit, but not stick-skinny. And she did with the help of health and fitness experts.

The Tyra Banks Diet is not an organized plan but rather it is a program that helped Tyra get to a healthy weight and feel great about herself through healthy eating, regular exercise and a positive sense of self-worth.
