Yes, they may look like perfection, but it’s good to know even the top Victoria’s Secret models are also human. Wetpaint Entertainment learned this ourselves by chatting with supermodel (and super fit human specimen) Doutzen Kroes just hours before the 2013 runway show.

During our chat, we asked Doutzen about her pre-show diet and excerise regimen and were pleasantly surprised at the frankness of her answers.

“My diet all year is kind of the same,” she exclusively tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “I eat healthy and very diverse. But leading up the show, I cut out alcohol and anything fried. I still eat carbs because I think it’s important for when you workout and I work out a lot. Working out is really important.”

And if there’s one message she could impress upon young girls, it’s that she works hard, very hard, for that body.

 “It doesn’t come easy for me,” she admits, “but in the end, it’s all about staying fit. I don’t want people to think I don’t eat. If that were true, I wouldn’t have any muscle tone. Over the years, you learn to find a balance between working out, eating and enjoying yourself. I’ve been able to find a rhythm that works for me and I do it all year round. That way, when the show comes around, I don’t have to go crazy or kill myself.”

That said, we couldn’t help but ask what her number one splurge would be upon finishing the show. “That’s easy, “Doutzen laughed. “French fries!”

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air Dec. 10 at 10 pm on CBS
