Rachel Hunter Partners with Slim-Fast

Rachel Hunter does not strike me as someone who needs to lose weight. From doing activities likehiking, biking and Pilates, she seems to be pretty on top of her health. Apparently Slim-Fast had another idea in mind when they contact her to be their newest spokes model last March.

People got the scoop from Rachel on her new gig:

"I thought, 'Wow, what's wrong with me?'" says the model, 36, with a laugh. "'Do I look fat?'" Hardly. At 5'10" and 147 lbs. (about 10 lbs. more than her peak modeling size), Hunter is most people's idea of an after picture. She felt better when the rep said they weren't looking for a Kirstie Alley-type loss, but someone for a campaign aimed at women who want to drop 5 to 20 lbs. Hunter, it turns out, is one of them. "There's no target weight, but I'll know when I get there," she says. "I want to feel sexy and hot!"

Despite appearances, Slim-Fast sees in Hunter a regular gal who "can inspire. She's not a size 2, nor does she aspire to be," says brand director Virginia BlakeWest.

"As I've gotten older, I can't eat as much as I used to," says Hunter. But while she'll slurp the 190-calorie shakes for breakfast and lunch, she'll still cook favorites like pasta and steak for kids Liam, 12, and Renee, 15. (Their dad is her ex-husband, Rod Stewart.) "The diet is not something I want to involve my daughter in – there are already too many stresses on teens. We sit down and eat dinner together."

Rachel Hunter is a surprising choice to sponsor a weight-loss product. But hey, having her on board can shed the theory that models live on the supermodel diet of coffee and cigarettes.

Why do these celebs who were never fat in the first place, endorse these products? Companies like this should be fined for doing this!

If i were 5' 10 and 147 I'd probably prance around in a bikini all day. She is GORGEOUS! The only thing about slimfast shakes is they are quick, but definately not filling. There dessert bars are REALLY good and low calorie which is nice. I tried this and ended up gaining weight because you'd have a shake and then be hungry and eat a meal. A little off topic, but doesn't CariDee English look a LOT like her?

I really love Slimfast; I drink the shakes for lunch because I'm usually on the go. I don't really use it for weight loss though...I couldn't only have shakes for two meals.

I cannot believe Slim Fast is still in business. It's a horrible drink. My mother drinks it now since she can't really put anything in stomach most days. My brother was on it for awhile and I tried it once and wanted to upchuck immediately. Well, her choice to sponsor. I will never try that stuff again.

How can a milkshake provide everything you need? Also - if I ate 190cals for every meal then I would quickly drop 10lbs too! This is absurd. She ought to be ashamed of herself.

I've never tried Slim-Fast long-term. I tasted my mom's once as a kid and it was awful!

Grlintheworld, and sweet potato, I totally agree with you. She looks AMAZING and HEALTHY, and should not be a spokesperson for slim fast! I've never done research on this diet drink, but I really can't imagine that it's as healthy for you as it claims... and I'm wondering if people are actually full on the shakes.

This is rediculous I must say. And the thought of having a shake for breakfast and lunch nauseates me. That's not healthy eating. And if she really wants to set an example for her daughter, then she shouldn't have accepted this rediculous offer.

She's in great shape, she doesn't need to be on any sort of diet!
