Aisha Tyler’s Diet and Fitness Regimen
Aisha Tyler’s Take on Weight Loss
Aisha, wrote the article “Real Women, Real Bodies” for the Glamour magazine to address the issues of dieting, eating disorders and body image in hollywood and around the USA. Here are some of our favorite highlights from the article.
“This is really like a ‘stop the insanity’ kind of piece that I wanted to do,” she said. “You want to have the strength to live your life and do the things that you want to do, and you can’t do that if you’re starving to death. Stop making yourselves crazy.”Aisha believes anorexia is getting to be much more popular, and that more and more runway models and (and role) models “are starving themselves to death” with a “crazy obsession.”
“Young girls see these women, and they seem fabulous, and they’ve got great clothes, and they look beautiful and they’re at the great parties,” says Aisha, “and they think, ‘If I starve myself, if I make myself super skinny, I’ll be as fabulous as that person.’ They don’t realize that a lot of these girls are miserable, sick and on drugs; [their] hair is falling out and they look awful up close.”As for posing nude for glamor “I was very nervous, and I worked out like crazy the month before. I’m just like anybody else. I wake up in the morning and sometimes I feel” (cute) “and foxy; sometimes I wake up and I feel like a potato with feet.”
