An Australian personal trainer was fed up with misleading "Before and After" pictures used to sell programs and pills, so she set out to prove a point.
And prove it she did. Inspired by a similar project by personal trainer Andrew Dixon, Mel V. decided to make her own transformation in under 15 minutes.
Yes, minutes. Because with improved posture, tanning lotion, black bathing suit bottoms and a few clever photo tricks, that's all it took to look like this:
"Check out my transformation! It took me 15 minutes," Mel wrote on Instagram.
"Wanna know my secret?" She added, and went on to explain them in detail.
"Well firstly I ditched the phonewallet (fwallet) cause that *** is lame, swapped my bather bottoms to black (cause they're a size bigger and black is slimming)."
Next, she "smothered on some fake tan, clipped in my hair extensions, stood up a bit taller, sucked in my guts, popped my hip, threw in a skinny arm."
