After sports commentators oogled her at a college football game, Katherine Webb, the current Miss Alabama, found fame on social media. Since that time, Webb’s modeling career has taken off and she has starred in the ABC reality TV show Splash. Webb quit Splash, a televised high-dive competition, last month after suffering a minor injury.

All of this success is heavily based on Webb’s good looks, which it turns out she is very disciplined about maintaining. Webb this week told People magazine that she has been “eating healthy for about six or seven years.” This means, according to People, that she eats only about 1,120 calories a day. “It’s all about self-control,” the 5 foot, 11 inch tall Webb told the magazine.

As for what those 1,120 calories consist of, Webb mentioned smoothies, salad, fruit, chicken fingers, and sweet potato fries. Not on the menu are any sweets, such as as cake and cookies, as well as any type of bread.

Though 1,120 calories may not seem exorbitantly low, Webb is also reported to work out (with a focus on cardio) at least three times per week. With that in mind, People has also quoted a nutritionist as stating Webb could easily bump her daily calories to around 1,700.

Though the People report quotes Webb, the beauty queen has now used her Twitter account to contradict the story, stating that she loves chocolate too much to eat so few calories per day:

    Bottom line: remaining skinny takes work and is generally not fun.

    Absent a truly athletic lifestyle that you love (like surfing, or being a professional athlete, etc.), and despite what catty women like to claim, very few people are naturally skinny, and many of those people are probably assisted by non-serious medical conditions that affect digestion, like IBS, or other similar conditions.

    For me, I know for a fact that poor digestion issues definitely made it a lot easier for me to remain slim over the years because I just didn’t eat as much due to the resulting significant discomfort in my intestines. It actually changed my view of food to something more like ‘a necessary evil’ rather than something to look forward to. I grudingly eat when I feel week and dizzy, as opposed to planning my days around meals.

    We all are aware that there are scores and scores of girls and women who are actually utilizing mental illness to remain skinny, i.e., anorexia, bulemia, etc., etc., and most of these females attempt to conceal or deny their behavior for as long as they can get away with it and claim that their thinness is just natural. Yeah, right…

    As I said, keeping yourself skinny generally requires suffering in some way. You’re either suffering because you’re hungry. Or you’re suffering because of pain and/or discomfort from a medical condition. Or you’re suffering due to mental anguish. Or you’re investing the time and effort to suffer through the exertion of major physical effort through hours of workouts nearly everyday.

    And yet, genetically speaking, we are the ancestors of people who managed to survive periods of famine and starvation. They survived because their metabolisms were slower and they passed that down to their progeny throughout the ages. Humans are hardwired to NOT be skinny, but that is not the standard of beauty. Go figure…
