Kylie Bisutti - Kylie Bisutti: 'I Felt Uncomfortable Posing For Victoria's Secret'

Top model Kylie Bisutti quit as a Victoria's Secret Angel last year (12) when she realised she was paid to titillate men.

The 23-year-old born-again Christian has opened up about her decision to walk away from the lingerie firm in her new memoirs, I'm No Angel: From Victoria's Secret Model to Role Model, revealing she felt uncomfortable stripping off for sexy photoshoots.

She tells the New York Post, "I was being paid to strip down and pose provocatively to titillate men. It wasn't about modelling clothes anymore; I felt like a piece of meat... I realised I didn't want to model anything that sold sex."

And Bisutti, who now lives in Montana with her husband, insists she doesn't regret her decision to walk away: "I've never been more content."

The stunner also doesn't miss starving herself to land modelling jobs.

She says, "I pretty much restricted my diet to oatmeal, fruits and vegetables to meet runway expectations. I'm five-foot-10, and I got down to 115 pounds with measurements of 34-24-34. In February 2007, New York Fashion Week was approaching, and while everyone I knew was being sent out to auditions, I wasn't.

"(My agent said), 'It's because you look like a fat cow right now, Kylie. You need to lose two inches off of your hips.'

"I no longer restrict what I eat. I weigh 124 pounds right now, but my ideal weight is 125. I want young girls to see me at a healthy size."
