Petra Nemcova Starved Herself To Fit In

Czech beauty Petra Nemcova used to starve herself in order to fit in with other models.

The supermodel is famed for her shapely curves now, but admits she tried a range of diets, including a fruit-only eating plan, at the beginning of her modeling career.

She tells Britain's Closer magazine, "I may have curves now, but when I started it was in the middle of the heroin chic phase. The likes of Kate Moss and Jodie Kidd almost forced everyone to be really skinny. I tried many diets, from eating very little or just protein to having only fruit all day.

"It was terrible for my metabolism and took me years to recover."
