Want to eat like a Victoria’s Secret model? Apparently it’s not all raw veggies and skinless chicken breast — at least, not if you’re Gigi Hadid.

She shared her philosophy about food while participating in MasterChef Celebrity Showdown on Monday:

“I always say, eat clean to stay fit, have a burger to stay sane.”

It's the foodie response to "Treat Yo' Self" and a great reminder that all things should be taken in moderation — even moderation.

Hadid definitely takes her own advice. She also shared that when she first moved to New York, she ate 52 burgers in a year (a new burger every week) to try to find her favorite.

Her signature dish on MasterChef? A burger, of course, topped off with pickles, jalapeños, and crispy onions. Sounds like her weekly burger habit has done more than keep her sane, it also taught her a thing or two. Host Gordon Ramsay declared the creation “F--king delicious.”

The Gigi Burger won the night, beating out model Devon Windsor for the prize: a donation to the charity of her choice. Hadid’s charity choice hit close to home: The Global Lyme Alliance. Her mother, sister, and brother all suffer from Lyme Disease.
