According to an upcoming issue of Shape magazine, Banks was so bothered by the unflattering tabloid pictures of her in a bathing suit that she decided to speak out, not run and hide about her weight.
Banks says her long work hours led to an unhealthy diet and explains, Sometimes the only thing in my kitchen when I got home at night was Tang and microwave popcorn, so that was my dinner.
Since then, the Americas Next Top Model creator has been taking care of her diet by hiring a chef to cook her healthy meals while shes working.
Banks favorite foods include fruits like mangos and papayas, salads with chicken and shrimp, and crudites with onion dip.
In addition, Banks has stepped up her workout routine on her treadmill since, in her words, Whole months used to go by when I didnt workout, but now Im much more diligent.
