As we all know, Victoria’s Secret supermodels are the best, and their bodies are ridiculously perfect. So recently, a British netizen challenged Victoria’s Secret supermodels to a four-day slimming recipe challenge. The recipe goes something like this：
Breakfast: oatmeal, egg whites, oranges, and yogurt.
Dinner: broccoli, quinoa, and chicken breast
Of course, on the second day of the challenge, the diet plan was declared a failure.
