 Modelling Agency's Sickly Diet Regimen to Keep Models Waif-thin

A leading modelling agency has a unique way of keeping their already stick like models waif-thin - they ask the girls to survive mostly on orange juice and coffee.

According to sources, Major Model Management agents have told some already too-thin models there that they need to lose even more weight, which isn't unusual. It's the diet that has the models upset.

"One was told she had to lose 15 pounds," the New York Post quoted a source, as saying.

"She got strict instructions. She was told to only have a little bit of orange juice and a big coffee in the morning, which would make her go to the bathroom.

"Then she was told to keep sucking down coffee all day until at least 3 p.m., when she could eat lettuce with a tiny bit of tuna with a drop of mayo.

"Dinner is a tiny square of broiled fish about 2 inches long and a glass of wine," the source added.

The source added that the girls are also discouraged from hitting the gym because the stylists don't want the models to have any muscle tone.

A rep for Major did not return a call and e-mail for comment.
