Kate Upton is the face of the Sports Illustrated 2012 Swimsuit Issue, and in the substantive pictorial, the former Guess model proves she’s far more than just a viral YouTube sensation.

Speaking with The Post at New York’s Crimson club, Upton said that she doesn’t follow a specific diet to maintain her signature curves. “I never deprive myself,” she explained. “If I’m craving something once a week, then I’ll go have it. Ice cream or whatever, I just eat the foods I like. I have to give credit to my trainer. He definitely kept me motivated in staying in shape. I’ve always been naturally curvy, but of course I had to get used to being in the public eye.”
