To every woman who envies supermodel Kate Upton's impeccably curved body, Kate has a message. She worked hard for her figure, saying, "I've been begging for this body my whole life," reported Fox News on July 28.

"When I first started modeling, I was a normal catalog model," she clarified. "Then, I became a woman, and I was really excited about becoming a woman."

To earn those superwoman supermodel curves, Kate worked closely with celebrity trainer David Kirsch. He told Elle magazine that Kate "is amazing about the diet. She does a few egg whites with spinach for breakfast, and when she wants to, she does a 48-hour cleanse."

Kate's Paleo-style low carb diet eliminates sugar and grains as well as alcohol. David calls it his ABC diet: No alcohol, bread or processed carbs. A similar approach is referred to as the NSNG (No Sugar, No Grains) diet by celebrity trainer Vinnie Tortorich.

Kate "followed my ABC. She ate clean, lean protein, lots of salads and greens and avoided everything processed," said David.

As for exercise, David says it involves "extreme, intense circuit training. We do three or four circuits and change them up a lot. She has her own pair of boxing gloves, and she will beat me up."

For Kate's role in "The Other Woman," David told Access Hollywood that he changed the routine to increase "the intensity and duration of the workouts, making it a strict cardio and sculpting boot camp that entailed body weights and resistance bands, sprinting and calisthenics, shadow and kick boxing."

And he agrees with Kate that she's definitely become a woman. "She already has an amazing, very feminine body, so I just want to tighten everything up to keep her in top shape."

In addition to all the time and effort she invests in staying so fit and fabulous, Kate says she must cope with being viewed as a "toy. She contends that some single men view her as an object of desire, and that bothers her, reported the Kansas City Store on July 28.

Kate notices the response after her first cover photo in Sports Illustrated magazine. "After my first Sports Illustrated cover (in 2012), I felt terrible about myself for a solid month," she admitted.

"Every single guy I met was either married or about to be married, and I felt like I was their bachelor present or something. I'm not a toy, I'm a human, I'm not here to be used. I am a grown woman, and you need to figure your (stuff) out."
