'Love Island' Star Zara McDermott Praised For Being Real And Sharing Before And After Shots Of Bloated Stomach
Everyone knows that there's a big difference between posting a bikini shot first thing in the morning - compared to after you've just inhaled a bowl of pasta.
But with the culture of social media, we've all felt the temptation of only posting our best angles. Now, reality star Zara McDermott has been praised for keeping it real on Instagram, after she posted images of herself after a big bowl of spag bol.
And it is so refreshing to see!
Writing on her @adaywithzara Instagram account, she explained: "I am so aware that most of the time we tend to put out the best versions of ourselves on social media. And I am usually guilty of this!
"But let me show you this. The first pic I took THIS MORNING at 8am when I'd just woke up! The second pic was at 8:30pm. How much a body can change in the space of a few hours is WILD!"
The two images show Zara's flat tum first thing in the morning, while in the second, she explained: "This pic doesn't do it justice of how bad my bloating can get! I suffer badly with bloating, as I am quite intolerant to meat and eggs. I also find that fruit bloats me a lot too. I don't get any other symptoms, however, other than just the bloating.
"I just wanted to show you guys that my body isn't always as sculpted and hourglass as it looks online, especially after I've just stuffed my face with spag bol. Anyway, I just wanted to keep it realllllll on this page!"
