For the first time ever, the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion show was held in London, as the famed models hit the runway in what has become an annual holiday tradition — both a television and a social-media sensation.

Candice Swanepoel was among several top models who took part in the annual show as Victoria’s Secret Angels. She walked the catwalk alongside other marquee names including Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Behati Prinsloo, Doutzen Kroes as well as Karlie Kloss, Lily Aldridge, Jourdan Dunn, Cindy Bruna, Devon Windsor, Isabeli Fontana, Joan Smalls among others.

As she sat for the interview with Fox and Friends, she spoke about what it takes to prepare for such as show, and spoke about what is arguable of the most pressing interest. How do they all get into such fantastic physical condition to walk the runway with confidence and grace and reveal the well-toned bodies that we have now come to expect?

She said that she ate more food in the weeks leading up to the show, to fuel her workouts. Swanepoel said, “Everyone’s different. Everyone’s body is different. I have to eat a lot more to be able to work out a lot more.”

So much for stereotypes about what models do or do not eat. And not least, she sets a good example for impressionable teens and others who might be swayed into starving themselves to get the look.

She went on to share some details, saying, “About a month before I start working out a lot more than I usually do.”

Explaining her routine, she said, “I do boxing. I do Pilates on the machine. I do a lot of lunges. I ran on the beach this year, which really tightens everything up.’

She spoke of what it’s like taking to the catwalk before a global audience. It’s nerve-racking!’ She said. She went on to note, “And the audience this year was three times the size of what we’re used to. In my mind I’m like, okay, that many people are going to be seeing me almost naked.”

Which goes to show, no matter what your genetics are, and how much you’ve done to enhance them through proper diet and fitness, there is still the public exposure to contend with.
