Former Playmates: The New Diet Gurus

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Getting naked for Playboy in your youth may get you a job as a diet spokeswoman when you’re older.

That’s because many weight loss companies are now using former Playmates like Jenny McCarthy and Anna Nicole Smith as spokeswomen.

Carrie Stevens, who was Miss June 1997 and now is the spokeswoman for a company called Diet Classics, says the trend is positive for all women.

As she puts it, “[Former Playmates] are newly accepted role models for women. For a long time, posing for Playboy was considered negative but you’d still hear a lady say in secret, ‘I’d love to have that girl’s body.”’

But while Playmates like Stevens have great bods, she insists they have the same issues with weight as other ladies.

In fact, Stevens gained 68 pounds when she was pregnant five years ago and, despite losing the weight, admits she “still feels like a fat chick” when she looks in the mirror.

That news might surprise some people but Stevens says that if people ever read the Playmate profiles, “they’d realize the girls have normal careers and are from normal small towns and truly the girls next door – just as [Playboy founder Hugh Hefner] intended.”
