Peaches Geldof’s extreme weight loss is due to a “braindead” juicing diet

British “socialite” Peaches Geldof (daughter to Sir Bob) rarely does anything truly interesting, so she has to settle for making the news with chronic engagements, shoplifting scandals and allegedly having heroin and Xenu-fueled one-night stands to keep the British tabloids well entertained. It was all quite contrived but not terribly surprising coming from a celebuspawn. In recent months, however, Peaches has gone something relatively unexpected; that is, she dropped a bunch of weight, which automatically caused suspicions of drug use.

For most of her young adult life (and granted, it hasn’t been long because she’s only 22), Peaches seemed proud to sport a rather “healthy” figure. She wasn’t in great shape from a fitness standpoint, but she certainly wasn’t fat by any stretch. The girl didn’t starve herself and seemed to eat three square meals per day like any normal person would. So it seems strange that she’s suddenly gone on an anorexic kick, but if I had to put a finger on why her weight has suddenly become a major issue for her, it would be the existence of her relatively new fey boyfriend/fiance, Thomas Cohen, who looks to weigh all of 110 pounds himself. It’s probably pretty difficult to get undressed next to this guy and not feel like a whale no matter what:

At any rate, Peaches responded to weight loss criticism in the same way that any girl with an eating disorder would do. She claimed that her new figure was due a bout with avian flu, which was followed by a new habit of eating healthily. Also, she expressed a newfound appreciation for miso soup and would reportedly take an hour to eat just one bowl. However, it’s become clear from Peaches’ appearance at the recent Girl With the Dragon Tattoo premiere that the weight loss has gone too far. Now, Peaches has revealed to The Sun that she’s put herself on a strict liquid diet and doesn’t eat solids for up to a month at a time:

Skinny Peaches Geldof has been slammed for raving about a dangerous fad diet – eating no solid food for a month at a time.

The telly host has come under scrutiny recently for her extreme weight loss.

And she was snapped at the London premiere of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo on Monday night looking even more gaunt.

Now Sir Bob Geldof’s daughter has claimed that she starves herself for several weeks in order to look this thin.

It was feared that the OMG! With Peaches Geldof host’s new tiny frame may have been down to drug use after she was photographed in September with dark bruises close to veins on her left arm.

But Peaches – whose mum Paula Yates died of a heroin overdose in 2000 – has now claimed that her weight loss is down to a fad diet which consists of just liquefied vegetables.

Peaches has told how she can drop ten pounds on the dangerous slimming plan.

She said: “I do juicing. You juice vegetables and then you drink it three times a day. It’s gross. I do it usually for about a month. I have no willpower but with the juicing I’m like, ‘I have to do it because I have to lose this extra ten pounds.’

“I will lose it then I’m back going mental for the chips.

“I’ll juice and then I eat chips.”

Peaches was estimated to have lost one-and-a-half stone between March and July this year, slimming from 10st to just 8 1/2st.

But in August she reassured worried fans by tweeting: “To those telling me I look skinny and to eat something, I can assure you I’ve just cut out eating crap. I still eat like a horse.”

However, Peaches, who is often pictured in celebrity magazines, has now said that she felt pressured by fashion mags to be thin.

She said: “Sometimes it’s hard. If you open any high-fashion magazine, the girls in it are stick-thin and then they’ve been airbrushed down to the point where it’s just ludicrousness.

“I have days when I wake up and think, ‘I’m so fat.’ ”

Cath Collins, a spokeswoman for the British Dietetic Association, said: “Peaches joins a long line of celebs who are braindead when it comes to nutrition. Surviving on fruit is a very dangerous diet. Peaches is at high risk of electrolyte abnormalities which could lead to acute cardiac arrest. Rapid dieting like this not only makes you lose muscle strength but wastes away your internal organs. It is what kills anorexics. It is a stupid approach and it is irresponsible to promote this sort of disordered eating. It’s worrying that somebody who has money and access to contacts would pick such a ridiculous way to diet.”

[From The Sun]

Can you imagine eating absolutely nothing an only subsisting upon liquified vegetables? Ugh. Talk about unsatisfying, and you know that Peaches isn’t bright enough to take on a liquid diet under the supervision of a nutritionist like a certain Victoria’s Secret model.

For comparison’s sake, here’s some photos of Peaches in May and August of 2010 while she was dating Eli Roth, who seemed to embrace Peaches’ figure in his very own way. However, her wardrobe choices during their relationship, including a bathmat dress, did her no favors:

Here are more photos of Peaches’ new slimline look over the past few months. While this new physique isn’t necessarily anything different that we see from Hollywood starlets, it’s certainly a red flag that Peaches has lost so much weight in such a short period of time and that she continues to want to lose more weight. She should stop dieting now and just concentrate on maintaining with exercise and a proper daily menu. Those liquid diets will kill her metabolism in the long run, and she’ll be heavier than when she started.

    Yeah, heroin juice.

    • ShanKat says:

      Nummy nummy heroin juice! Awesome.

    • Raz says:

      Ugh I get So annoyed when people wrongly assume someone who is addicted to heroin is skinny.
      The myth comes from the fact that poor heroin addicts on the street have to spend every last cent on gear since there living off welfare or whatever, but people with actual money who are heroin addicts are rarely thin as heroin actually gives you cravings badly, like weed.

      And also because meth heads, speed heads, coke heads etc are usually skinny because those drugs make you feel nautious when you try to eat, yet heroin doesn’t at all

      • 2cents says:

        Raz, my uncle DIED of his heroin addiction after decades of our family watching him fight for his sanity and life. He puked constantly when he was high. CONSTANTLY. He was also very very thin, and no he was not “living off welfare, or whatever”. Your ignorance on this topic is not only blindingly obvious, but also rather rude considering that many a family is on welfare right now and fighting off the overwhelmingly wrong opinions of people such as yourself. Just saying.

      • lala says:

        She does not look any skinnier than Angelina and Angie has had 3 kids.
        She is young and in better diet. Haha!

      • WillyNilly says:

        Um, no it does not give you the munchies. In fact, opiates suppress the appetite. There are sometimes cravings for sweets to balance out low blood sugar, but its mostly in relation to hard candy – nothing substantial.

      • iseepinkelefants says:

        It makes you crave junk food. Most addicts aren’t skinny because they consume sugar. For some reason heroin addicts love sugar?

  2. Taylor says:

    She is talentless what else she can do to get attention. Classic case. Classic scenario.

    • Tara says:

      Speaking from experience it’s extremely rare for a veteran junkie to puke from junk. That happens when you’re first starting and it messes with your inner ear. I used to get munches when doing chiva and was only really thin when I just had no money for food. Others were different tho they were also doing speedballs which of course has coke suppressing appetite. There are lots of thin junkies but, finances or food bank permitting, there are also some fat ones.

  3. someone says:

    holy crap her foot in the last picture :S
    also, the camera adds 10 pounds, so i can only begin to imagine how skinny she really is in real life. also she looked perfectly normal before….this is just sick and creepy. also what is with these women like her and kelly osbourne who insist on dating men who weigh 100 pounds and have bodies of 12 year old girls!?!?

  4. Pont Neuf says:

    If the diet is “braindead”, then it’s ideal for her. It matches her level of intelligence and personality like nothing else.

    I am sure that this is an exaggeration. She does look healthy, has some muscle tone (certainly more than when she was slightly overweight) and her skin is glowing. I’m sure that pulses and cereals are a part of the mix, as are probably nuts and fruits. Otherwise she would be in hospital by now.

    Also, I have done the vegetable juice diet myself, and you cannot do it for more than a week at a time. It’s physically impossible, as you would start having all sorts of problems after that short period of time. The body needs more nutrients than what vegetables alone can provide.

    Tabloids, as usual, make a mountain out of a molehill. Still, I would say that 8 1/2 stone isn’t the healthiest of weights.

    • Shannon says:

      I agree. She doesn’t look like she’s starving herself. At least not long-term. But she is setting herself up for a life of yo-yo dieting!

    • WillyNilly says:

      I still see boobies, so she’s fine for right now. Another 15 lbs and she is definitely in trouble.

      As for why she does this – remember when she suddenly bleached her teeth and got uber tan when she was with Eli? I think she just feels like she has to match her partner or something. Does that make any sense? Kinda like Aniston (ha!).

  5. WTF says:

    um Eli Roth = gay yes?
    and that last pic of her twisting her foot -looks painful

  6. Nanz says:

    Ouch! Her foot in that last pic! Did she twist it?!

  7. Maxe says:

    i checked how much it in kg, and i think its a regular weight,right? plus she doesnt look like keira knightley…

  8. Blergh says:

    Hipster disaster.

  9. fabgrrl says:

    What lovely skin. She has, dare I say, a peaches and cream complexion.

    That’s all I really have to say about this trainwreck.

    • taksi says:

      Maybe her skin is affecting my judgment, she looks healthy to me. Obviously, if that’s her usual diet, it’s not good but I don’t think she’s underweight or gaunt by any means; weight-wise she looks healthy skinny to me.

  10. hatsumomo says:

    Every time I see a pic of her ankle in that position I cringe. Ive fallen like that before and know how painful it is!

    Aside from that, yeah I dont believe for one second she is losing weight from eating healthy and exercise. Its drugs and starvation. Chicks like her wouldn’t know a healthy life choice if it smacked her in the face.

  11. Toe says:

    She looks good in the pictures

  12. Happy21 says:

    1. What is with the tat of the inverted cross?

    2. What has she done that grants her access to the premiere of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo?

    3. I wonder what Daddy thinks?

    4. She looks freaky now. Hope that its not from drugs. That’d be so sad considering that her mother struggled with drug addiction.

  13. LBeees says:

    Hmmrph… that lady from the British group has it a little backwards.

    First, a monthlong juice fast can be done safely and healthily. Check out the documentary “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead”, it’ll tell you all you want to know about the excellent health benefits of juicing.

    Second, I doubt that is what Peaches is doing. Rather, she isn’t just doing juice fasting.

    Third, again that lady from the British thingie is pissing me off! Qualify your statements lady! Juicing isn’t healthy if it’s done EVERY DAY FOR SIX MONTHS EXCLUSIVELY, sure, but juice fasting for a month is totally fine! She must not know very much about nutrition so she should STFU.

    • lin234 says:

      I was going to mention that documentary too! The weight those two men dropped was incredible and they did it under supervision of a doctor so juicing can be safe and very nutritious.

      It’s important to mention that in the documentary, the two men who juiced for two months straight also did a bit of light exercise like walking everyday. I actually try to juice in the mornings ever since I saw that documentary. If nothing else, it’s a great way to get a ton of vitamins.

    • Snowflake says:

      It’s not healthy to not eat solid foods. Why not eat healthy and exercise? Peaches sure doesn’t like her juice diet’s done her any favors.

  14. Criss says:

    She’s thinned down because she cut out the crap and she’s having better sex.

  15. paola says:

    i don’t understand why those pretty girls always ruin themselves with horrible tattoos on legs and arms ( Scarlett johansson, Megan Fox, CHeryl Cole, Amy Winehouse) they all look butchers to me. Gross and tacky if not grosser and tackier. ugh.

    • gg says:

      Butchers! LOL. You’re right.

      • paola says:

        Legs tattoos on girls are just insanely horrible. they’re all so pretty but for some reason they put botox and plastic surgery on their faces completely ignoring the fact that they have some poison ivy growing on their legs or some senseless dragons or some Marilyn Monroe on their biceps. *blink* it just came to my mind the skulls Kelly osbourne has on her feet. Ugh. i can’t wait to see them when they’ll be 70 years old.

    • Joh says:

      Glad somebody else mentioned those!
      So Artless!
      Nothing enhances the beauty of a pretty girl in a $10,000 couture gown like several prison tattoos!!!
      I always wonder if they realise how bad the tats will look in 20 years or if they can’t think that far ahead

  16. gg says:

    Her B/F must be on it too – he’s a bag o’ bones. You can see how his clothes hang on him by the way she is always clutching at his waist.

  17. danielle says:

    Yeah, I think it’s drugs too.

  18. benny says:

    If she keeps it up, she can go down to only 20 pounds! Because that’s how much she’ll weigh after she’s dead, and all that’s left of her is her skeleton.

    But, man, think how thin she’ll be!

  19. Johanna says:

    In those pictures where she’s wearing the red dress reminds me of the late Amy Winehouse.

  20. laylajanelovesgossip says:

    What is with the gross guys these celebuspawns date. Yikes!! I hope these guys have great personalities because they are nothing to look at.

    I remember a scene in one of my favorite books where the guy wouldn’t like the whip cream off his girlfriend’s body BECAUSE IT WAS TOO FATTENING!!!That’s what this skinny dude reminds me of..

  21. jen says:

    I have lived on juice…it’s a cleanse…it’s vegetable juice mainly and fruits mixed in here and there 80/20…it’s VERY healthy…you honestly don’t need that much food! If you are eating all veggies and fruits and a little brown rice here and there you can be super trim-you can lose weight doing it and you do lose your craving for CRAP food! I can believe that she did lose all the weight in a year and did it by juicing…I lost 6 pounds in one day!! She looks like a naturally petite person who probably was just cramming chips and sugar all the time and now she stopped…I weighed almost 300 pounds and I’ve lost about 1/3 of my goal weight loss in 3 months…I’m just sayin…it can be done…weather she did it I’m not sure!!

    • Snowflake says:

      be sure and update us when you gain it all back. Fad diets don’t produce lasting results, you just mess up your metabolism.

    • whatevs says:

      dude you should do a juice detox for three days MAX. ideal would be one day max! the human body wasn’t meant to live on liquids wtf

  22. Rux says:

    What’s up with the arm pit stain in the ankle killing picture…

  23. Girl says:

    Wouldn’t be surprised if she was on drugs along with this ludicrous diet. Junkies are not known for their top-notch decision making skills.

  24. TheOriginalKitten says:

    This chick sounds like a moron.

  25. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Chelsea Clinton face + anorexia + sweaty pit stains + ankle-breaking shoes = not cute. At all.

  26. Lol says:

    those pictures are quite old in the new ones you can see how skinny she has gotten shes all bones. ill post the link from the sun so ye can check them out i hope thats ok

  27. Meanchick says:

    That girl is a soup sandwich= A complete mess!

  28. Lisa says:

    LOL, so cool with that inverted cross.

  29. Alexis says:

    I don’t know this girl, but her current weight is not unhealthy (she is very skinny, but it works on her frame), and the amount of time she lost it in is not unhealthy. If she’s on drugs she’s unhealthy but again, i don’t know her, and these pics don’t give me enough info to assume anything amiss. She was fine before, too, but I don’t begrudge a girl for losing some weight to feel better about herself.

  30. Ramie says:

    she looks MUCH better now. I don’t know anything about her, but the before pix make her look chunky & frumpy. Plus her boyfriend is super hot!

  31. ManicPixieDreamGirl says:

    good luck on keeping a man! When you’re that thin, you’re a cranky ass bitch all the time. And men like tits and ass!

    • Tara says:

      I agree Ramie! Glad a few of you are taking a little bitchy out of this celebitious comment thread.

    • Joh says:

      And what’s really funny is that really thin guys often really like very curvy girls!!!!!!!!!!

  32. AcesHigh says:

    Haha, I can relate to having an uber thin boyfriend. It really does make you feel like a whale. The last picture made me cringe. I’ll give her credit for being motivated, and she doesn’t look too unhealthy, but anymore lost weight might just make her look… unattractive?

    • cr says:

      Follow the link to the Sun article and photos, she’s heading toward that not attractive stage. Weight wise she didn’t look too skinny this summer, but now … not so good.

  33. Granger says:

    Sorry, I can’t help it… If she is anorexic, it’s a little ironic given she’s the daughter of the man who spearheaded one of the biggest events ever to raise money for starving Africans.

  34. insanity says:

    You give me a super surprise!Thanks!

  35. whatevs says:

    that spokeswoman is of course right about what she says regarding a healthy, slow weight loss, getting enough nutrition etc. she would also probably say peaches is too thin and her skin looks saggy which is why i agree she has that junkie look. however in celebland a healthy weight is not acceptable. people are either stick thin or well, not a celeb. we live in a world where even kate middleton’s waist is made thinner with photoshop and agencies ask the super-fit rosario dawson whether or not she is thin. anything above size 0, which is not even a size, is obese by their law.

  36. GirlyGirl says:

    Pic 1 is the worst prom pic EVER

  37. Mtn Girl says:

    Maybe Peaches is bulimic and likes drugs. She needs to get a life and eat a sandwich. Without throwing up.

  38. Sara says:

    At least she’s honest. At least she’s not lying her ass off like so many celebrities who claim to be ‘naturally thin’ or claim to eat a ton of food.

    I give her a LOT of credit for being honest. I really wish more celebs would cop to their unhealthy diets.

  39. Geneveve says:

    Maybe it’s cause I live in LA, but she looks fine to me.

    But that last pic, I would love to see if she fell or what. Ouch!
