Liza Golden Bhojwani, la modella che ha detto basta ad una vita da 500 calorie al giorno

La storia di Liza Golden Bhojwani, la modella che viveva con 500 calorie al giorno

Liza Golden Bhojwani

Il mondo della moda ha tanti aspetti positivi ma anche dei risvolti molto negativi, uno su tutti è senza dubbio l’eccessiva magrezza imposta alle modelle e, di conseguenza, anche a noi che veniamo bombardate di immagini di donne taglia 38, come se fossero la normalità, la cosa giusta da perseguire. Il problema è che la magrezza eccessiva non solo è frutto di sacrifici e rinunce ma non è neanche compatibile con il benessere, ci sono le dovute eccezioni ma nella maggior parte dei casi per sostenere i ritmi della moda si rischia di ammalarsi: assenza di mestruazioni, anoressia e bulimia sono cose normali in certi ambienti. Liza Golden Bhojwani è una bellissima modella che qualche settimana fa ha pubblicato su Instagram una foto in cui mette a paragone due foto: una scattata nel 2012 quando faceva la modella per i grandi brand, e l’altra di adesso in cui lavora come modella curvy.

Liza Golden Bhojwani era costretta, per lavorare, a stare sempre a dieta, assumeva 500 kcal al giorno, aveva il viso scavato ed una magrezza davvero eccessiva. Un giorno mentre cucinava è svenuta ed ha capito che non poteva più sostenere quei ritmi. Man mano che il suo peso aumentava, il lavoro diminuiva sempre di più, al punto che ha deciso di dedicarsi ad altro. Dopo qualche anno ha ripreso in mano la sua vita, ma questa volta nel modo giusto, ha iniziato a mangiare sano e a fare un po’ di sport, ed adesso lavora come modella curvy e lasciatemelo dire, è molto più bella di prima. Certo non è ingaggiata da Victoria’s Secret, ma sta bene, è felice ed è libera di essere se stessa e di trasmettere un messaggio positivo alle altre donne.

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...

“L'immagine a destra mostra come sono oggi. Non è perfetta, non è la migliore, ma è mia, è la mia anima e sono felice. Sono sana e forte come mai prima. Forse non sarò adatta a stare sulle copertine, lavorando per i migliori marchi, ma me ne sono fatta una ragione. Merito di essere felice e di sentirmi soddisfatta. Ho deciso di diffondere questa storia per inviare un messaggio di amore per il corpo, rivolto a tutte le donne che lottano là fuori”.

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
