Meta data gone when referencing custom model

I have created my own model from and sql query. I filled in all of the meta data including column names.

Issue: When I reference the model in an sql as such SELECT * FROM {{#1}} AS my_model, the resulting output does not show the column names I assigned them in the meta data. For example, I renamed the FROM_UNIXTIME(table_alias.create_time) column as "date" in the metadata, however when I query the model it just display FROM_UNIXTIME(table_alias.create_time) as the column not, not "date".

Why is this happening and how can I solve it.
