'Real Housewife' Aviva Drescher's Bikini Body Is Awesome but Her Diet Sounds Miserable

by Lindsay Mannering on January 4, 2013 at 6:20 PM

aviva drescherI don't know about you, but Aviva Drescher is possibly, and by that I mean easily, the worst Real Housewife of New York, ever. Ugh, I don't even want to get into it. She's more annoying to watch than even the abominable Jill Zarin and the certifiable Kelly Bensimon if only because Aviva seems to know better, but does shit regardless. Anyway! We're talking about Aviva today because she recently revealed some "diet secrets" that I think we need to discuss.

The 42-year-old mother of four says:

I heat a high protein, low carb diet. I go spinning a few times a week, but it is more than just exercise, I eat well. I love green juices. I won't drink diet soda, and I avoid pesticides and food with chemicals. I won't eat hotdogs or bacon as they are filled with nitrates, and those are cancer causing agents.

Also, she's very anti-Miso soup, claiming that whenever you order it from a restaurant it comes out of a can and is filled with MSG.

With these food restrictions, it's no wonder Aviva is a thin woman. I mean, avoiding food with chemicals ... doesn't almost all food have chemicals? Not that that's right, that they should, but most do, and unless Aviva's got an orchard, a garden, a dairy farm, and a butcher in her backyard, it must be very difficult to find food untouched by the industrial revolution.

I suppose if you're going to be zealous about anything, health should be at the top of the list, so I can't knock Aviva for living what sounds like a very clean lifestyle.

I can, however, opine that her existence sounds pretty miserable. To be constantly thinking about what you can and cannot eat ... that seems tortuous to me.

Dining at restaurants is a big part of New York City life and eating is a huge component of almost all forms of socializing everywhere -- to not be able to take part in such a large chunk of society sounds sad, if not stressful. Having to worry about what's being served, what's offered, etc. sounds a lot less fun than having the steak and a beer and getting back on the health train the next day.

One thing's not up for debate, though -- Aviva sure does look fantastic in her bikini!

Do you believe in diets that restrict certain foods?

    When that is the lifestyle you live you aren't just constantly thinking about it. It's just life. It's not a stressor. She knows what and where she can eat things that fit into that lifestyle, I'm sure.

    I don't believe in diets that restrict certain foods purely for weight loss, but I am gluten intolerant, so I question everything about the food I eat - at home and when dining out.  I have to constantly think about it, but it has become a part of my life.  It's second nature.

    I think she looks amazing and the article hints at jealousy.  It seems that she works really hard to keep and maintain her body.  And actually high protein low carb is how hypoglycemics eat.  Also, many people with food allergies avoid certain foods.  I thought I was clicking an article that was talking about a woman living off of lettuce.  It sounds like a wise and smart diet.  I'm sure she isn't thin simply by avoiding foods with chemicals, as I'm sure she is talking about highly processed unnatural foods.  It isn't hard to go to find a restuarant that serves natural food, or a vegetarian salad that didn't use pesticides.

    I'm trying to figure out what makes her diet so miserable? It sounds nearly identical to the way I eat, and I don't feel deprived of anything. Also, I never have a "food hangover" and feel energetic and light nearly 100% of the time! Don't knock it until you try it.

    Huh. I don't know what to think. In a way, I am like good for her! Great that she can stick to her ways, she is possibly decreasing the chance of health risks, & stay fit. I wish I had that much self control! On the other hand, it does seem like a very hard thing to do. I like to enjoy the unhealthy foods in life & just not care sometimes. (I should really eat tons healthier but

(I should really eat tons healthier but whatever lol) I think everyone, especially people that normally eat crazy healthy, deserve some room to be like hey, fuck it. Lemme go enjoy my "chemical" filled msg laden delicious ramen! But to each their own. She is in very good shape but I think she could benefit from a few more pounds! Healthily of course.
