After the superstars Heidi Klum and Gwyneth Paltrow shocked their fans with extreme radical diets, it girl Nicole Richie joins the ranks of prominent anorexia victims: She is thinner than ever and even risks her life for it.
Almost two weeks after Christmas, it seems that half of Hollywood is in diet fever. Have the stars and starlets nibbled too much under the Christmas tree? The assumption is obvious, because the first slimming plans have now become known. Model mom Heidi Klum (40) is getting back into shape with a “Master Cleanse” cure. She and her friend Martin Kirsten (41) do without solid food for several days and only drink a mixture of maple syrup, cayenne pepper, lemon juice and water. Even harder: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow (41) currently only consumes 300 calories a day for three days. Lemon water, teas, and simple soups, as well as walnut lentil pie, pumpkin, and steamed chicken are allowed during their Winter Warming Detox program.
But the current diet of Red Carpet Beauty Nicole Richie (32) tops it all off. According to the US magazine “Star”, the mother of two currently only eats celery, sunflower seeds, juices and chewing gum. An unusual diet, as the Munich nutritionist Monika Bischoff confirms in an interview with Marians Welt: “You really have to be very disciplined for this diet. If she goes through this program longer, the consequences will be dire. “
According to the nutritionist at the Munich hospital “Barmherzige Brüder”, the adopted daughter of cuddle singer Lionel Richie (64) has to expect severe muscle loss. “She consumes far too little protein, so muscle wasting as well as a large yo-yo effect can be predicted. She will also have problems with everything that is particularly important to us women. After two months, hair loss, dry skin and brittle fingernails can result. “
But Nicole Richie’s alleged consumption of juice is also questionable from the point of view of the expert: “If she only drinks juices, the fructose sugar in the drink is due to the triglycerides and she is exposed to the risk of cirrhosis of the liver, a stroke and a heart attack! “
According to the “Star”, the petite wife of “Good Charlotte” musician Joel Madden (34) weighs just under 40 kilos – with a height of 1.52 meters, this results in a body mass index of 16.9. Nutritionist Bischoff makes it clear: “Anything below the value 18 is underweight.” Looks like the 32-year-old has fallen victim to an eating disorder again. “Anorexia can be compared to alcoholism. The disease lasts a lifetime. Sometimes those affected suffer a relapse after more than ten years, “explains Monika Bischoff Marians Welt.
We can only hope that Nicole Richie will be taken care of by her family during this difficult time – and that she will soon rediscover the joy of eating.
