Out running..
Wow! I could not imagine the butthurt such a camp would incur in a western country, but this is fantastic for girls who are serious about becoming models. Love the focus on healthy meals and actually reducing portions and including exercise, so that girls learn how to maintain and drop when needed. Much better than remaining uneducated and later having to resort to emergency type measures to drop 1.5-2kg/week that aren't sustainable.

And thank you Artemis for posting this thread! <3

Thanks for posting this @Artemis! Very interesting read. The food plan outlined looks very sustainable. Interesting they don't focus much on cardio for the exercising.

I think most girls that go are already signed by Avant, but they offer spaces for non-models for a price.
Do you think you'd have to speak Russian to be able to go? :oops: Actually looked into it before because Avant seemed so legit, but since all their captions etc. are in Russian and the site itself was in Russian...

I assume you would... They're based in Moscow with agency branches in Poland and maybe a couple other cities if I'm not mistaken.

I was browsing the AvantCamp VK page yesterday, my computer automatically translates it to English. So fascinating, hilarious to think what the outcome would be of something like this opening in the US or even the UK - I'm envisaging HAES propaganda pushers picketing (waooow tounge twister) in an un-energetic rage.

Here's a couple more diet related snippets:

Nastya, a fan of swimming: "I go into the pool several times a week and swim for an hour" She also loves streytching and walking at least 10 km per dayWith this sporting regulations of its menu consists only of healthy dishes: "For breakfast, most of all, I am preparing a berry or fruit smoothies with granola and nuts, or cereal for dinner - baked vegetables with any cereals, beans or mushrooms)snacking on the feeling of hunger nuts, fruits, smoothies or dried fruit for dinner, my choice is often the same as lunch or replaced omelet, pasta from durum or Soba or something -That more, but often in a hurry only have time to eat some fruit or vegetable Occasionally I eat poultry meat, seafood and fish I love to try something new, so often experimenting with recipes incredibly useful in my performance spring rolls, paella, Brown , chocolate and other "
Sasha takes the following diet: For breakfast porridge on the water with apple or cottage cheese For lunch, chicken with buckwheat or vegetables Dinner Sasha is often overlooked because they do not have time to cook it(tip-dine light salad or low-fat cottage cheese) as a preferred snack vegetables or fruitsThus, Sasha just adheres to the rules of healthy eating!
They have an ask.fm page HERE

And here's a few additional images from the camp itself:
