Candice Swanepoel’s Amazing Transformation

The ‘net’s been all abuzz about Candice Swanepoel’s weight loss. I wasn’t sure what the fuss was about, so I did a little historical research before coming to any conclusions. But my conclusion is that she definitely lost weight – and, in my opinion, she looks better than ever! I’m posting a gallery below… first there are a few pictures of her in 2009 and 2010 – then new pictures of her from a few weeks ago.  It looks like most of the weight loss has just been over the past couple of months – and, while she’s never been my favorite among the VS girls, I think she looks great.

I’m estimating about a 15lb weight loss.

Thanks for the inspiration, Candice – nice work!

 

What do you gurls think? And how do you think she did it?

        But then, everyone who is thin will have that gap when you bend over like that though. The key is to have that gap when you’re standing upright + feet together. I think she’s normal in my book. But then, my perception on skinniness is kinda on the extreme end.

      yea, too bad Adriana had a baby. after that, your rib cage actually expands and never goes back (my size 0 mother told me that – she used to be 00 before me :( ) Adriana is going to look massive next to tinier models from now on.

    Simply lovely! To be that skinny and still have good muscle definition is next to physical perfection to me!!
    So good tp have u back SG!! Hope everything has been ok. :) starting a new diet today and really needed this thinspo-was the best thing to which I could wake up (I check this site b4 I get out of bed)

        I looked up some info on the Warrior Diet and I’m doing my own version of it-having a 100 calorie protein shake in the early morning (I get up at 5), then having a small vegetable based meal at about 4 (after I workout), then having another 100 calorie shake before bed (bout 10 pm). Hoping this works-according to everything I’ve read it should, I have some social events in the near future and need to get off the last of this stubborn ‘freshman 15′

            Haha well it turned into 2 meals but I’m bout to have a vicious workout session to kill all the calories-gonna work out with a lot more intensity than normal

          2. michelle

            So following the warrior diet according to the website did NOT work for me. I have been too ingrained to not eat b4 I go to bed and when I tried having my meal in the middle of the day I ended up with more calories than I usually eat in a day. It may work for some and that’s great but I’ll probably only revert to it when I know I’ll be at a dinner party where I won’t be able to completely avoid fat. Back to keeping the cals at about 1200 and plenty of working out. :) oh well.

          model824, are you a model hun? i find being a pear i’m heavier in weight than most people expect be to be which i think is because we carry the weight in the lower half and up top im so tiny… do u find the same?

            no shygirl, I’m not a model, that’s just the name I use here to motivate myself to keep skinny like a model… too short to be one, 5’4

          2. model824

            really? any other shorite here? how much do you think we should weigh? I’m 116-118 lbs now, want to get down to 100lbs, what do you think?

          3. shygirl

            im 5’5- 5’6 so im pretty short too. right now im 125 as ive put on some weight but i feel good at 120, best at 110… fingers crossed i get back there

          4. skinnybananas

            I’m barely under 5 feet ): I currently weigh around 98 because I gained during winter break and can’t seem to get it off again. My goal’s 85 lbs.

          5. Ballerina

            I’m almost 5’7 now and weigh 138lbs right now :( my doctor says that muscles weigh more than fat and that I’m quiet muscular because of the dancing. but that doesn’t make it easier to go stand on the scale and see that weight appearing there :(

          6. Alice

            i would do anything to just grow a bit taller! Im 5’6 :( im 120 and i need to get downn to 100 ASAP!

    How much should you eat to drop 20 pounds in a month?
    I was thinking about cycling calories, but keeping the weekly intake the same.

    Reply
    1. Christa

      A month to lose 20 pounds seems kind of extreme to me. But I’m not a weight-loss pro like most of the girls on this site. I would only aim to lose 2-3 pounds a week with healthy weight loss. With that, you can lose the twenty pounds in two months, which isn’t that much more time?

      And, I don’t know, I’m really thinking about eating raw vegetables and fruits mainly and drinking a lot of water. That should do it.

      dropping weight is easier than you think. 20 pounds in a month may be too much though!

      the best way is to eat 3 small meals and if you’re hungry between meals, allow yourself to have any amount of fruit you want.

      it was what got me from 53 to 41kg in 2.5 months. that was 2 years ago! definitely worth it, girls :)

        I’m still loosing (yay!), albeit very slowly, I’m only 8 pounds from my GW which will take me ages but is a LOT less than the 30 I’ve lost so far so I think I can do it!I’m not so good at a steady calories anymore, I seem to binge and starve a lot now which I hate, I wanna get it under control. Have you ever found yourself doing that?

        How’s your food situation going? Do you find yourself dealing with temptation much?

    Her upper half was always amazing, now her bottom half matches! Ultimate thinspo, that girl is incredible! I can’t believe that people (on other sites) are saying that she is too skinny, she still has great curves and doesn’t have that kind of tired and hungry looking face that some very skinny models have. She puts Adriana to shame.

      at first, I thought that she looked better with more curves too. but after thinking about it, it’s because she’s in a bikini and in heels. everyone looks good in a swim suit even when they’re curvier. however, if you were to crop off her feet (since her heels are elongating them) and fit her in some denim shorts, you’ll go ugh at her thick thighs.

      Bs. They let Chanel Iman do shootings and runway and everything even at her tiniest so well, that won’t happen. And even if, it wouldn’t hurt her. I mean, she made it on the cover of vogue so she can just ditch VS and still not be unemployed :D

          That is so true!! although you have to be committed all the time and work hard for it… but totally worth it! how do you keep motivated every day? I just get out of track very often… any tips?

            Personally speaking, I think the best motivator is jealousy. One of my best friends is tall, pretty, and super-duper skinny. I mean, people tell me I’m really thin, but I swear I look like Godzilla next to her! Having someone as your real-life thinspo just makes it seem even more possible, you know?

      1. am

        I agree. I never understand why VS even hired Chanel Iman, she definitely doesn’t fit into the ‘curvy’ image they look for. Candice, on the other hand, having lost weight, still looks curvy. It’s just in her body shape, I guess. And she is really lucky. Cuz I’m a pear shape too and I wonder how she loses the weight + retain muscle tone without bulking up

        Then again, I’m a lot shorter than her …

        1. model824

          thanks for the tip, I do have a friend who’s super skinny and tiny, she’s a bit shorter than me but I can use her as real life motivation, I mean if others can do it then you can do it, right?

          Do any of you have any tips on what exercise to do and not bulk up? I bulk up pretty easy…

        I think the difference between Chanel and Candice is that Chanel has always been just as skinny. Her body weight/look has never changed, and whether people choose to believe it or not, the girl is naturally skinny.

        Candice went from normal curvy to skinny curvy and it was very obvious probabbly cos it happened in a short amount of time, so am guessing lots of fasts and liquid foods.

        I doubt that Chanel’s body even has the extra space to add weight, the girl is a stick, and no diet in the world can keep you as consistently thin as Chanel without you going mad.

        I guess we have the same “boyish hips” which is OK since my guy likes them :) I keep my BMI under 14 and I thnk that Candice’s is probably about 15-16 but she hsa lost lots in her thighs and all over too. I think she looks amazing now especially compared to Adriana whose waist looks twice as wide as Candice’s

          woooow under 14??? AMAZING! mind me asking what kind of exercise and foodintake you follow?

          I’m stuck at over 15 because I simply eat too much :/ I always try to compensate my binges with exercise :(

          Reply
          1. Sue

            I guess I’ve been doing this for so long that anything different would seem so strange to me. I keep my total cals to 1000 on sedintary days which don’t happen often, about 1600 on my usual busy days, and up to 2000 when we’re doing more strenuous things all day like hiking. I keep my fat intake low (no saturated fats). My diet is mostly fruits, vegies and whey protein shakes. I do blend in a little olive oil to get some necessary healthy fats. My guy and I exercise together most days Mon-Sat and take Sun off. We usually spend about two hours which includes an hour plus of pretty intense resistance training and the rest is whatever aerobics we feel like. I keep my body fat percentage very low and if it was what is considered “normal and healty” my BMI would be about 15 too.

        2. M.

          woa Sue , your my new role model haha. I suck so much for being like this! Whenever I’m stressed I binge on crap, though I don’t even have a taste for it anymore. Do you never have sugar or carb cravings? How can i get rid of them? :( sorry to keep asking but you seem to know a lot about nutrition! Could you also tell me what a sedentary day would look like foodwise for you? and what about a normal day?

          THANK YOU LOADS in advance!!!

            @Sue, could you please help me? I have a body fat percentage of 13% bou I don’t have my period..! do you have yours? can you give me some advice? thankss kisses

          3. Sue

            On a sedintary day I usually have 4 protien shakes 125 cals each with a little less than 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil in the first and third. That makes about 600 calories. Then I make up the last 400 cals with what ever I feel like of fruits and veggies. Fruit on these days always tastes better than veggies so I kind of don’t get to the veggies much. But like I said sedentary days aren’t frequent really cause I always have stuff to do around the house or in my yard and garden even even on my exercise day. On a normel day, exercising and all I have 6 shakes… 150 cal shakes with a scant 1/2 tbsp of olive oil in four of them totalling 1100 cals and make up the other 500 cals in fruits and veggies. Definitely including lots more veggies on these days when I can have 1600 cals. Fruits like Chloe says take care of a sweet craving. I just don’t get them very often though, but if I do I just remember what it takes to stay as thin I am now and it goes away. Or my guy will remind me that what ever I don’t gain, I don’t ever have to lose.

            For stress try meditation. A few minutes does amazing things to reduce stress… really.

            Frida, I have to admit it but as unhealthy as I know it is, my weight and even more keeping my body fat extremely low not just to be as thin as I want but very lean and defined too has always been more important to me and my periods have been infrequent and light if they happen at all. I don’t know what to say. It’s a choice I made for myself even though it might not be a good one. Be careful, please.

          4. Frida

            thank you for replying, @Sue. yeah… I was expecting that answer, but of you don’t mind me asking, you body fat percentage is way lower than mine, right? With 13% I shoul be menstruated, right? kissess

    Just wondering – do you know any good online shop or sth that also sells to europe and is not that expensive? I have the hardest time finding clothes that fit me AND don’t make me look akward. I have the tiniest boyish frame and I’m losing weight right now so no hips no boobs no ass! Its so hard to look that tomboyish :( The clothes I usually buy are designer and really expensive, but they’re so bad quality I swear they’re all washed out, ripping up at random places, just I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR D: & I’m broooke!

            I just meant no waist compared to what they say about models bing 90-60-90 cm thats a third less on the waist that means houglass! for me it would have to be 52 to be an hour glass … no way I can EVER achieve that … I’m at 60 now wow I gain, I’m such a loser … btw thank you for your example Day Sue! I’m not sure if I can do it because I crave solid food for my mind to be satisfied and leave me alone :( I envy you for your man beacking you up, because I have noone :(

          Hi M, do you eat yogurt? Yogurt is brilliant at getting rid of bloating because it super-powers digestion. Also if you’re on the pill try getting a lower-oestrogen pill, or even going for no pill at all and using the monthly cycle method (that’s what I’ve been doing for ages because I can’t stand the extra water weight and bloating from the pill).

          I’ve got the same clothes and boyishness problem as well :( I’m 5’8″ and 96 lbs and my hips are narrower than my rib cage, and I’m sitting here in new trousers that are 2 sizes too big for me and pretty scrunched around the waist where I’ve drawn them in with a belt :(
          We should definitely save up some money and go to Japan because I’ve heard that they LOVE skinny girls over there and they also have incredible clothes :)

            Hahah! M I’m so pleased to know that there are other people as well who only have one pair of trousers that actually fit them, I’ve got to be so strict with myself to not just wear this pair all the time because I think people started to wonder whether I owned only one pair of trousers.

            One of my friends has a Portuguese uncle who lives in the middle of nowhere on a hill in Portugal, and apparently it’s fashionable there for men to have really tight trousers, so he sits in a hot bath with his trousers on to make them shrink to fit him perfectly (and weirdly). I don’t recommend that though, I think just washing and drying them on the hottest setting possible is a much better idea, although it might damage some fabrics. I haven’t tried it yet but I’m gonna try this next time.

          3. M.

            hahaha yeah and the shitty part is that those jeans are ripped too … so I must look like I’m a incredibly poor girl with one pair of ripped trousers that she wears all the time … omg hahah

            jup the bathtub part I heard that too from people being teenagers in the 70ies … they would put their pants on wet for them to be as skintight as possible … nasty thought ugh would never do it!!

      somewhere around 110 lbs? all depends on your frame! :3 What I’m suggesting would give you an bmi of 15.4. But I really think its impossible to tell without seeing you, because you just have to commit to becoming skinny and eventually at some point you’ll feel good no matter if thats above or below that number. Good luck!

        im the same height as you and quite a narrow frame, my goal is around 53/54 kg, which is about 115 to 120 ish. thats for a bmi of roughly 16. But like M says it does depend on your fram. i kinda go by looks, if i get too bony looking i calm it down a bit, i prefer lookin skinny and toned.

    I sure hope adrenaline rush burns calories…I’ve eaten crap and chugged carbs during disaster relief efforts here in the southern US. Last night I was going into shock (was awake since b4 the first storms hit wednesday b4 dawn) and people kept saying how ‘u have to have food to keep going’ and being stupid soooo it has not been good calorie wise. Maybe all the movement burnt it off?
    Am I being totally shallow for thinking like this when I have just being hauling supplies via atv through what looks like a literal hell? Is my obsession with being skinny too worrisome? I’m sorry I’m just blabbering on but I guess maybe coming on here is just a way to feel ‘normal’ for a few minutes.
    Have a skinny day!

    She looks soo hott! I love it! I dont have that pear shapped body, i have the hour glass, and yet it so hard to get that space between my legs. I got it once but my doctor told me i had to gain weight. So i gained 12 pounds but im devastated! I have a photoshoot the 17 and i NEED to lose 5lbs by then. At leats. That gives me a little more than two weeks. I have no idea where to start as i’ve been stuck in the weight-loss battle for a a while. Help please? All the advice/diets/anything you can tell me gurls! Something kinda easy to stick with and super effective. Also any work outs that are great for the tummy and inner tighs?
    Thanks a bunch skinny girls! Stay thin! ;)

      Lately, whenever I want to snack, I eat raw mushrooms. Not only is there absolutely NO way for me to find a way to make them taste good, they’re actually pretty filling as well. I can usually squeak by lunchtime with only a mushroom and a glass of water, it kills my appetite so well. It’s healthy, it’s icky (you should probably find your most hated health food for maximum effect, though), and I lost a couple pounds doing just that. It was the starving tip of the day a while back. It really works! On top of that, exercise. I always go by the rule “do a sit up for every bite you take”. That way, I absolutely work off everything, but it makes me stop and think about how much I’m eating. More eating means a longer workout period, and less doing fun things. I’m not very strict about it, though. I’m so bad. T.T

      @maria @kindaskinny
      a typical day for me now is actually 1500kcal. however when i was losing weight 2 years ago, it’s usually
      B: 2 pieces of bread with jam/peanut butter (thinly spread)
      S: fruit
      L: rice, veggies, steamed egg/fish
      S: fruit
      D: rice, veggies, fish/chicken
      S: 1/2 cup of milk or piece of fruit
      i would exercise roughly 3-5 times a week, 30 minutes of jogging each time. sometimes i would go for a swim – front crawl, 30min.

      as you can see it’s rather reasonable! the weight just came off!
      the key is to eat slowly, drink lots of water, and eat only when hungry. the other key is to EAT when hungry, not wait till you’re so hungry you’ll end up binging on treats.

      i did get cravings at times but i realized that once i bit into an apple, my cravings for chocolate/chips etc would just disappear. i realized that all my cravings were actually hunger/thirst! it’s so amazing. try it yourself :D

      @Gabster, just don’t starve yourself. eat small healthy meals and snack on a slice of fruit or two each time you’re hungry. go for a jog 3-5 times a week and SLEEP well, no more late nights!

        Thank you so much chloe:) that was really helpful! It’s actually pretty similar to what I’ve been trying out lately, and I’ve lost about 3 kg in a month.. so, slower than you.. But thats probably because I’ve eaten sweets and stuff at the weekend.. From now on I will think of you, and eat fruits instead :P haha.

        Yeah! That sounds genious!!!!! Because although i greatly appreciate the mushroom diet, i dont think that i would be abe to follow it because although i hate mushrooms, i would be hungry to the extreme unhealthy point and that would lead me to binge and then i would feel obligated to purge it up sense i just love food so much. I hate what it does to me though! :/ but Chloe,thats awesome! I looove it! I’m going to start tomorow as ive already had some oatmeal and toast with jam this morning. Thanks a bunch!

          nope i don’t have a super fast metabolism! i’m definitely not one of those who eats a lot but doesn’t get fat.

          anyway, the bottom line is to simply eat small healthy meals and snack only on fruit. that just does the trick well for me. will certainly lose at least 1kg/2lbs a week if not more doing that.

            @Bryony: don’t eat less than 1000cal a day! if you do eat less and you’ve reached your goal weight and start to eat more cals a day, your body will be like ‘finaly, more food!’ and it will conserve a lot more fat and cals than it would normally do…
            @all the beautiful skinnys: I have a performance the 28th and the 29th and I want to lose at least 6lbs/3kgs. do you guys have more tips than the ones previously mentioned by chloe (thanks for that btw ;-) ) ? the problem is that I have to eat at least 3 meals a day because I got to have enough energy to keep me going all day in school, doing my homework and dancing at the evening…

      If you don’t like green tea, don’t make yourself drink it! There are plenty of other wonderful teas out there. Ginger is my current favorite. If you mix it with green you can’t even taste the slight bitterness of the green tea.

      There’s also some licorice teas that taste just like sweets…but without calories. ;)

      Been facing that all day! So I didn’t eat after 2 and stayed out of the house (my binge place) and then when I came home at about 8:15 I cooked all my food for tomorrow except dinner and I’m telling u-the smell of spicy foods cooking and measuring and adding all those calories and then putting it all in containers and then and then…u get my drift? It was like after handling, smelling, and counting, it was like I had already eaten. This is soooo gonna be my new way of dealing with the problem.
      I hope that helps! They say the sense of taste and smell are closely related.

      Ask yourself these questions
      1. Do I NEED to eat this?
      2. What is more important? Health and confidence, or junk food?
      3. It takes a few seconds to eat food. It takes weeks,even months to lose weight.

      And also,see food in calories and nutritional content. But do not COMPLETELY deprive yourself. Allow yourself 2 treats per week.

      More than likely not. In fact-thats what I was doing at my skinniest. I know that is my binge time so plan your calories around it. Don’t eat or have a low cal protein shake until school let’s out, have a big meal, and then workout.
      No worries-if u aren’t exceeding 1,000 calories a day, you should be fine. :) good luck.

          An apple won’t cause u to gain weight-better to eat 80 calories in an apple than one cookie cause its a better nutritional trade off. :) I’ve fallen in love with 100 calorie protein shakes made with coffee instead of milk recently cause it replaced my mocha habit (bad me.

            Depends on the size of the apple, I’ve seen apples the size of my face…
            I prefer getting the smallest apples I can find because once I start eating them I can’t stop!

          2. Irene

            I count apples as 80-130 small to large. Bananas 90 to 130 small to large. Super paranoid about counting haha… not all fruits are low cal!!

          3. Charlie

            Wow I had no idea that apples were so high…I’ve been counting them as around 30 calories per apple for the last 10 years!

            I guess cos they’re deceptive because even though they’re lower in calories per gram than bananas, they’re denser (I think) and so heavier, giving you more calories for less food.

            Damn

          4. michelle

            I count them as 80 because I use a thing that cores them and slices them and then I peel them so I kinda trick myself. Lol. I’m like Charlie-i go for the small ones because I’m always scared I’m under estimating the calories.
            Btw: I have been doing 5 meals a day that are under 200 calories-working wonders! This way I KNOW I’m meeting my goal and I’m always munching so no one suspects a thing.

          5. Irene

            How much cardio do you do on 1000cal/daily? I have no problems with restricting. Problem is I think I overwork myself. 600cal intake -500 cardio -working all day = I’m so dizzy by the time I get home my body just wants to eat to compensate. I think my net calories is still ok but I really want to get this under control. 800cal seems like a good goal for me… 1000 just seems like a lot now haha.

          All you have to do to get her thighs is under eat, strength train, and run —to get a gap that size you must have a little atrophy, but unless you continue to act like you are building muscles (your body will actually be eating it’s own muscles if you keep your calories low enough) then you won’t get the reduction in the right spot. Fat must go, then, it has to start eating that muscle.
          Take it from someone with a real serious problem, but I’ve got that gap.

    I have a question about restriction. I’ve recently gained like five pounds, and for someone who’s five three, five pounds are a lot. I’ve started going back to the gym everyday and I’m restricting food to about 1000 calories a day- so lots if fruits, veggies, whole grains. The problem is a) I haven’t seen any changes yet and b) I have the most terrible stomach aches. My mom just thinks I need to eat more, but I really can’t. Any suggestions from other skinnies?

        But white bread is so terrible for you, I think she’d be better off just sticking with the whole grains, but just eating less of them. Well, if not less, at least lower calorie.
        I recently found a bread that’s only 40 cal per slice, AND is whole grain. That pretty much cut my calorie consumption in half, since sandwiches are all I can cook. I lost a couple pounds just by switching my brand of bread. 8D

          Actually the difference between white and whole bread is minimal, the only two things that whole bread is significantly higher in is selenium and manganese (you can see the stats here (just make sure that you’ve set both measurements to 100g): http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/baked-products/4878/2

          White bread is actually higher in iron and almost just as high in protein. And it tastes waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyy better :D

        Many people are sensitive to gluten despite not being completely intolerant of it. Personally I wouldn’t go near bread. Get your carbs from chickpeas and lentils, and see if that changes anything. Same goes for dairy, for me, a glass of milk = stomach ache, bloat, gas. Not fun.

        And, surprisingly, many people find the same with soy. So, I guess the moral of the story is eliminate, observe, re-introduce, identify the problem foods.

        Reply
        1. Cat

          Oh, and chew. Lots. Properly. When eating whole grains, fruit, vegetables and legumes, there is a lot more fibre to get through. So it’s more important (and very beneficial for a myriad of reasons) to chew your food very very well. A few obvious benefits are better digestion (should help your problems) and feeling fuller after less food.

      I’m limiting my fruit and grains. I just have fruit at night for desert. It’s so easy to overdo fruit and the sugar in it can cause cravings. It does for me at least. I guess it depends on your nutRitional type. I’m a protein type.

        Protein is fantastic, it fills you up AND gives you toned and skinny limbs (protein takes more calories to digest and having a better muscle structure increases metabolism. I wish I could eat more protein but I’m addicted to bread.

      Your body might not be used to all that fiber. If you have a lot of fiber without enough water, it can really mess with your system. I would suggest reading the book “Clean” and following their cleanse. It eliminates “problem” foods that many people have issues with, such as gluten, dairy, soy, etc. You can add those foods back one by one after three weeks and truly find out what works and what doesn’t. You’ll probable also lose a ton of weight and feel really good! Best of luck! <3
