To attain that they eat much less than what a normal woman needs to consume to survive.In fact,an average woman needs at least 1200 calories per day for a healthy life. The recommended BMI (measure of body fat based on height and weight) for an average woman is 18.5 to 24.9.

The calories required for an average woman to turn herself into a “Lollypop Lady” are 400 calories, that is, one third of the required calories. To get this, a starvation diet with strenuous exercises like cardiovascular exercise which burns fat at super-speed is required.

Kirstie Clements, who was fired from her job as editor-in-chief of Vogue Australia last year has released a book, in which she has exposed the dark side of the eating habits of models.She told Entertainment Tonight that “some models even eat tissue to stay thin, even though they swell in the stomach.”

The lack of basic calories intake results in seizing up functions of the body. Therefore, starting from the brain, this malady starts taking a toll on the body. The lack of calories causes a metabolic melee in the brain resulting in fierce mood swings, loss of sense of proportion and the inability to see outside the immediate world. And this calorific intake results in decreasing BMI much below the recommended level, which results in infertility, insomnia, liver and kidney failure. The use of diet pills, which is very common for the Size Zero aspirants, results in incontinence, and bowel and bladder disorders. Eventually, the heart may stop functioning because there is no more fuel to burn.
