A modelo partilhou uma foto montagem chocante em que mostra como era quando consumia apenas 500 calorias por dia e tentava singrar na carreira de modelo e como é agora, desde que abraçou uma vida saudável e feliz com as suas curvas voluptuosas. A transformação é gigantesca e Liza Golden-Bhojwani faz um desabafo nas redes sociais com vista a inspirar outras raparigas e mulheres a aceitarem os seus corpos e não seguirem "dietas e padrões de beleza irrealistas e pouco saudáveis".

"A foto na direita é eu como eu sou agora, o meu corpo como ele é. Não é perfeito, não está pronto para o desfile da Victoria's Secret, mas é meu e a minha alma está feliz. Eu treino cinco dias por semana, mas às vezes não treino por causa de lesões ou viagens. E sabe o que mais? Está tudo bem ", diz  evidenciando que não faz mais exercício físico por obrigação.

Segundo a modelo,  a consciência da necessidade de mudar veio quando desmaiou de fraqueza, sozinha, no seu apartamento. Nessa época, conta que consumia apenas 500 calorias por dia.

"Em 2012 eu estava a consumir apenas 500 calorias por dia, enquanto em 2014 consumia entre 800 e 1.200, de acordo com a minha fome e humor. Estava mais em forma do que nunca na minha carreira. Tinha a barriga lisa, trabalhada mas ainda não estava em forma para os padrões da Victoria's Secret e outras marcas", escreve Liza.

Hoje Liza admite ser feliz e a construir uma carreira consistente como modelo plus size.  Veja as fotos!

 

Who has taught us that if we are above even a size 4 we are "fat"? Why do we glorify only one body type? What has made us resort to shaming people who are not that "ideal" body type? What is wrong with the size 10 body in this collage? Does it really disgust us so much? Is the girl with the pointed protruding shoulders really so much more attractive? Because that was me at size 2 ...How about the girl with the black undereyes with the shorts that are almost falling off because they are too big, does she look much more stunning to you? Because that was me at size 0... I was once an ignorant, uneducated, and insecure girl. Who believed in what society told us we needed to live up to in order to "be perfect". I was happy to bust my ass to fit in and tell others that they should as well. But, I was young, naive, clueless, and oblivious to the fact that all that conforming would someday break me down so badly that I would lose my awareness of who I really was and be forced into believing I was a failure. But today, I look at myself and the comparison to my old self and what I see is no longer failure or defeat. I see a healthy young woman, no longer a girl, who has transcended into a happy being with more positivity and love surrounding her than ever before, all because she learned how to love and accept her true self. I'm pretty sure that's not a bad thing 🌟PS- to all the people who like to say my before photos are not me, look at the matching tattoos I didn't just happen to find someone on google who just happened to have the exact same tattoo which is a custom made note to a lost family member. Weight loss & Weight gain drastically change the look of our faces! Accept reality. #loveyourself #bodypositive #beyourself #positivethoughts #mondaymotivation #effyourbeautystandards #lovetheskinyourein #beautybeyondsize #happyvibes

A little flashback Friday action for you. This caption will be long and won't fit, so if you'd like to read please find the rest in the comment section....The left side was me at the start of the peak of my career. My first proper fashion week where I was actually the size I needed to be. I was booking amazing shows that one never thinks they actually could, walking with girls who I once looked up to, it was a serious adrenaline rush...but after fainting one night in my apt whilst preparing one of my very low cal meals (I think it was 20 pieces of steamed edamame if I remember correctly), I called it quits with the diet and workout regime I was put on and decided I could do it on my own. I thought to myself, I can still be this thin, but I'll just eat a little more so I don't feel so horrible. Well, eating a little more turned into eating nearly a bag full of almonds, which then turned into eating full size meals, which then turned into a full blown binge. I was craving every single food you could imagine and I was giving in to every craving even though I knew this was such an important time in my career. I made it through NYFW okay, no one had noticed any weight gain, but by the time I had gotten the LFW I could see the pounds starting to show both in the mirror and on the measuring tape, but I kept quiet obviously not wanting to sabotage myself. I found myself going to the grocery store and picking up raw vegetables to try and make up for the near two week binge I had in NY, but I didn't see any weight coming off no matter how "healthy" I was eating and no matter how many workouts I fit in. MFW came and I knew I was bigger and by bigger I mean a 35.5in hip rather than the 34.5in hip I started with in NY, I played it cool and just pretended everything was normal. I did end up booking shows, Dolce & Gabbana being one of them. Which I afterwards received online criticism about my thighs looking fat...Anyways PFW came about, and I found it impossible to resist those chocolate croissants 🙊 I went on many a casting with one exclusive option being on my schedule, but after meeting the client I knew the reason for me not nailing the gig, my size...
