Emily Ratajkowski doesn't mind a few carbs!
The 25-year-old model
happily chowed down on a piece of bread in an Instagram snapshot on Friday, captioned "carbs for the win!"
While the Instagram pic may be proof that Ratajkowksi has a sweet spot for carbohydrates, she's also committed to promoting body confidence. In the August 2016 issue of Harper's Bazar
magazine, where she appears nude on a horse
, the London native opened up about feeling body shamed as a teen model.
"Because of third-wave feminism, I understood that there are all these f**ked-up ideals of beauty put on young women; that there was something to be scared about in the entertainment world," explained Ratajkowski. "But yet the people I knew in my everyday life, they [didn't realize] their faux pas, their missteps, and since they knew me it was that much harder because the comments felt personal."
Noting a friend who endured similar mistreatment, Ratajkowski detailed getting "harassed" because of their figures.
"It was, like, something I became very used to," she recalled. ”I had a girlfriend who was Venezuelan, and her body developed in a different way. I had big boobs, and she had a big butt. She would wear jeans with no pockets that would show it off, and we were constantly in trouble at school with the dress code. We were harassed, and, damn, that was the worst part of it."
