Well, maybe sometimes they do, but most male models have cut way down on their sugar intake in order to keep the muscles building and the energy flowing. There really is no question about it – if you’re planning on pursuing a modeling career you’re going to have to cut down on your sugar intake considerably to make a go of it.

Why is sugar a no-no?
 
If you have never studied the effects of sugar on a person’s body before, that will have to become a part of your modeling education. Sugar has a devastating effect on anybody, but even more so on male models that plan on maintaining the perfect body.
 
While sugar seems to give you energy, it actually takes it away. When you first see sugar you’ll experience a sudden energy rush that is immediately followed by a crash. This crash of energy can last a lot longer than you’d want it to – especially if it’s your time to work out.
 
While energy drinks that are commonly sold in supermarkets and convenience stores seem enticing, they are actually loaded with sugar and caffeine that will inevitably lead to an energy crash. Male models don’t reach for a candy bar or sugared energy drink when they need to get moving. There are food and drink options including protein bars and vegetable drinks that will give you sustained energy.
 
Don’t have a protein bar around? Cook a couple of eggs and serve it with some whole wheat toast and a glass of homemade squeezed juice. This is the kind of thing that male models would do.
 
Time to empty the cupboards 
 
It’s time to take a second look at the food that you currently have stocked in your cupboard. You may have bought a healthy looking cereal in your grocery store that seemed to be a great alternative to all of the other sugar-laden cereals being promoted. Look again. Just because the box says it is healthy and sugar isn’t the number one ingredient, it may be high on the list. The healthy cereal you’re currently eating may not be all it’s cracked up to be.
 
It’s time to take a look through your cupboards and examine the ingredients in the foods you’re eating to double check that you are not getting a sugar overdose at some of your meals.Male models know that eating healthy is a part of their career and learn to embrace this lifestyle.
 
If you’re ready to take the next step forward and become a male model you’ll have to do the same. Heck, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to do this even if you decide to choose another career path!
 
Here’s a great spot spoofing just this, from our friend, Ronnie Kroell for Andrew Christian.  
 
Happy Holidays!  Don’t get crazy!!

Men who model underwear need to be dedicated and in good physical shape. You are going to be in competition with other aspiring underwear models, so you will have to tone abs as well as thighs and glutes in order to define your muscles. It isn’t easy to break into underwear modeling, but you can maximize your opportunities through regular exercise, eating healthy, and also by having a good agent. In addition you have to be comfortable modeling various kinds of underwear, such as thongs or briefs that are Brazilian cut.

The Prep:

1. Make an exercise plan for yourself. You’ll need to build muscles and do cardio workouts in order to have the defined muscles that are needed by male underwear models. It is recommended to undergo weight training 4 days a week and a cardio/ab workout on the other three days. Underwear models have specific toning needs, and this workout addresses each of those unique areas including the biceps, quadriceps, upper and lower chest, abs and even the back.

2. Eat a healthy diet. If you want to have the body of an underwear model, you are going to have to work out regularly and eat in a healthy manner. Fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains in balanced portions should be included in your diet. After you work out it is good to enhance your muscle development by drinking a protein shake. In addition, plan for five or six meals during a day so that you are never hungry.

3. Get your portfolio ready. If you are going to look for an agent or go to casting calls, these are things you must do. When you have worked out and developed your physique, set up an appointment with a professional photographer to take head shots and then use the photos to create a comp card (a card the size of a postcard that lists your measurements and has a portfolio picture.) When preparing for the body shots for your portfolio, include a variety of underwear, such as boxers and briefs. And be certain that the photos are taken in a place with good lighting since that will allow your defined muscles to show well.

4. Visit modeling agencies and apply. An agent can help you get into castings and jobs that are not open to models that do not have agents. To find an agent, you should visit directory sites or make a Google search for male modeling agencies. Search for agencies that handle commercial and print work and will hire male models, as some only have casting availability for women. You usually have to send a head shot photo, a whole body photo along with a comp card, resume, and cover letter in order to make application to an agency.

5. Use your own resources to seek out available positions. While waiting to get the right agent, check out modeling jobs for underwear that will take you on without an agent. Look into the underwear companies that are not as big to see if they have casting calls or shows coming up. Find out who the casting person is and send him comp card along with your portfolio.
