This weekend's Page Six Mag profile of model Chanel Iman just had to include one of those annoying, "she's so skinny but she really loves to eat" paragraphs. Here's Chanel on her diet: "'I have a really bad sweet tooth. Berry crisp or apple crisp with ice cream is my favorite. I like cheesecake. Also chocolate. I like chocolate cakes. Mousses. Cobblers,' she says, ticking off her favorites on her fingertips before folding her spindly arms somewhat awkwardly into her lap. 'Macaroni and cheese. Greens. Yams. All the heavy food—cheeseburgers, burritos, I eat it all!' Given Chanel's 23-inch waist and knobby limbs (at 5´10?, she is a size 2), it seems improbable. But 'I'm just really tiny,' she grins, apologetically. 'People hate me, because I just sit. I'm eating, I'm eating, I'm eating and then I just?sit. And I don't gain a thing. But I'm still developing. I'm still growing as a woman.'" [Page Six Mag]
