Model Taylor Fuchs Has to Fight His Love of the Slice

Taylor Fuchs was more of a sports guy when an agent convinced him to leave college after two years to try his hand at modeling. Since his debut just about a year ago, the 21 year old has walked for a slew of designers from Marc Jacobs to Dolce & Gabbana and appeared in magazines such as V and GQ Style, as well as titillated bloggers. He makes his home in Greenpoint, where he finds pierogi akin to the ones his grandmother still makes for him when he returns to Saskatchewan, Canada (Fuchs is 3/4th German and 1/4th English). So where does he go for Brooklyn sushi?

Saturday, April 24
I had some Raisin Bran at home for breakfast. For lunch I went to Pax, right by my gym, and got a turkey BLT wrap.

That night I got a spicy tuna roll from Wasabi. Theres a ton of different restaurants in Greenpoint its easy to sit around and order in.

Sunday, April 25
I just had some yogurt and granola for breakfast and went to Whole Foods in Union Square and got a piece of mushroom pizza with truffle oil for lunch. The pizza is really good there I like to think its healthy but I dont know that it is. I came back to the house and had some grilled swordfish, asparagus and potatoes.

Monday, April 26
I had some instant oatmeal for breakfast.

It was a rainy, cloudy day so I got some soup at the Soup Man for lunch.

I went out to dinner with some friends at the Blue Water Grill and had the sea bass. I like to eat a lot of fish when Im here because back home its hard to get fresh fish. Saskatchewan is in the middle of Canada so its a meat and potatoes type of place.

Another bowl of Raisin Bran at breakfast.

In the afternoon I went to the Agency and stopped in at Starbucks and had a sandwich and coffee.

After I was done for the day I got back and got a Sicilian slice from Driggs Pizza in Greenpoint. I love pizza. When I first came to NY thats all Id eat. I had to steer away from it eventually. Its tough in New York because its on every corner.

Theres been a pretty drastic difference between what I eat now and what I ate in university. Ive had to adjust and start eating food thats actually good for me. I usually like to take a day out of every week and maybe treat myself to something that might not be the best for me a slice of pizza or some pierogi.

I had some oatmeal for breakfast.

For lunch I went to Mozarrellis which has a soft spot in my heart because its the first place in New York I went to eat. I got some penne vodka from there. Its near my gym, too.

After that for dinner I went and got some shrimp fried rice from Planet Thailand.

I just had some yogurt for breakfast.

Ive been running around doing castings and running errands so I havent had a chance to eat lunch [at 3:30].

I dont necessarily agree with models being as skinny as they are but thats the business. There are some girls who are super-skinny but eat whatever they want it amazes me. And there are others that are obsessed with their diet. I try to find a balance. Fashion is a funny thing because from one season to another it switches and just because the models are skinny this season doesnt mean theyll be skinny next season.
