Kate Bosworth doesn’t eat wheat, sugar or dairy, follows 80/20 diet

ACZONE Gel, 7.5% Launch In NYC
These are photos of Kate Bosworth in New York on June 3rd. She was at the launch of an acne treatment, where she was quite overdressed in a pink gown, and out casually dressed in bell bottoms, fug patent flats, and a sleeves striped scoop neck sweater. Self Magazine spoke to Kate at the skincare event about her diet and exercise regime because that’s their subject matter and no one wants to hear what she thinks about fashion. Kate said that she’s on an 80/20 diet, similar to the diets that Gisele Bundchen and Olivia Munn follow, in that she eats a very restrictive diet 80% of the time with indulgences the other 20%. She said that she doesn’t eat wheat, dairy or sugar most of the time but does make allowances when she’s on vacation. I would assume that she eats a very calorie restricted diet regardless, just because she’s so small. She doesn’t look as thin as we’ve seen her in the past though and she does seem healthier overall.

“One day in my mid-20s it hit me that I can’t have a burger for lunch. I’m going to fall asleep,” she said in a recent one-on-one interview with SELF during the launch of Aczone Gel 7.5 percent, a topical acne treatment.

So what’s in her fridge to keep her going through the post-lunch slump? Bosworth stocks up on lean meat, fruits, avocados, walnuts, eggs, and olive oil—ingredients packed with healthy fats. And while she’s filming The Art of More, she is following a wheat-free, sugar-free, dairy-free meal plan (except for goat cheese and goat milk). For Bosworth, a typical breakfast might include a goat cheese omelet with avocado and tomatoes. But of course, the 33-year-old actress has that one thing she could never cut out. “Ketchup is the indulgence that I never give up. Ketchup on everything,” she said.

Bosworth knows that although this diet is delicious, it’s a bit strict. And she revealed that she only eats this way 80 percent of the time. When she goes to Montana to spend time with her husband Michael Polish, it’s a totally different story. She’s drinking whiskey, chowing down on burgers, and cooking ragu in between riding horses and swimming.

So you could say that her healthy living plan subscribes to the “all things in moderation” adage. And that’s her same philosophy when it comes to exercise. “I had a hard time with my exercise routine because I felt like it had to be an hour, and it had to be really rigorous and intense,” she said. “Then, I realized you can go down and get on the treadmill for 20 minutes, and you’ve done something.” And something is always better than nothing!

[From Self]

I have the same question I had about Olivia Munn’s 80/20 diet, how do you count that exactly? Do you just eat well 8 days out of 10 or is it only a rough estimate? In terms of burgers making you tired, on Saturday I actually had a burger for lunch and noticed that I got very sleepy afterwards. (I do eat burgers but only once every couple of weeks and for dinner, so my body wasn’t used to it.) I also can relate to pushing yourself too hard while exercising, just because I don’t feel like I accomplish anything if I don’t work hard for an hour or more. As one of my spin instructors says however, abs are made in the kitchen. It looks like Kate’s kitchen is very regimented. I hate this idea that you have to give up entire food groups to lose weight or keep it off though, it makes a lot of people think it’s impossible.

    She looks like a little bird

  2. Birdix says:

    She was so strong and cool in Blue Crush.
    I wonder why goat cheese is the exception here.

    • Hudson Girl says:

      She may have given up dairy because of Lactose issues. A lot of people I know state this as their real reason for omitting all dairy- they just prefer not to get into their gas issues. 😉
      Goat milk and cheese is naturally lower in Lactose so, easier for those that are sensitive to digest.

      • Becks says:

        I also don’t eat dairy , since I’ve given it up, my skin is a lot clearer, and I don’t have bloating in my belly anymore. I eat very little wheat and sugar as well. I feel so much better! I’m working on giving up sugar completely, but it seems impossible 😯
        When I’m on vacation, I definitely indulge though. I mean you gotta live a little ☺

      • Veronica says:

        Sadly, this is why I had to give up cheese. I can get away with certain kinds that have limited lactose (like Swiss), but I was pretty bummed to give up ricotta and feta.

    • Goldie says:

      The bacteria in goat cheese and other fermented dairy like yogurt is supposed to be really good for you.

      • anna says:

        Here here Hudson Girl! I would rather not go there, the gas, the bloat, the awful taste in my mouth.. But thank God Im not a lover of cheese, it makes things much easier. I have a friends who adores cheese – we live in a French speaking country so it comes as dessert, it s varied, delicious and everywhere! She lost 8 kg in 1 month just by giving up cheese..

      • Lumi says:

        No need to give up cheese just because you can’t have dairy. Try any of those cultured nut products that are everywhere these days. Tastes close to the old-fashioned stuff.
        I agree with CB that Kate’s looking a lot better these days.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Because goat cheese is one of the MOST delicious treats on the planet! Yum!!!

      • Minxx says:

        OMG! I love goat cheese! I’m lactose-intolerant big time, so it’s the only cheese I can eat. Fortunately, I really love the taste. Goat cheese salad with some beets and walnuts .. or goat cheese on rye with ripe tomatoes. Yummy! I follow similar diet with no dairy, sugar and very little meat (2-3 times per week I have a bit of chicken breast or fish), lots of vegetables, legumes and beans, fruit twice a day. I try to stay away from processed meats and wheat as well as it makes me feel bloated and sleepy (pasta for ex) but I make exceptions once in a while. I still love McDonald’s fries but I’ll have it like once a month. I don’t think her diet is crazy and it’s not really a diet in a sense of restricting calories. After a while, you don’t even crave sweets or burgers. But on vacations when I don’t cook myself, I just go with the flow and don’t bother everyone with my preferences, as long as I can digest it 🙂

    • Intuitive says:

      F*** this, I’m off to eat a cream cake!!! 😂

  3. Goats on the Roof says:

    I do something similar. I keep a food journal and monitor what I’m eating and in what amounts. I’m not precise–I don’t panic if I only eat healthy 78.6% of the time. I just use the 80/20 as a general guideline.

    I disagree with her on exercise, though. My body would NEVER be satisfied with only 20 minutes per day.

    • sylvia says:

      Couldn’t help but lol at your example of what you call not precise at following of your 80/20 diet. 78.6%? No that’s not precise dear. Its borderline neurotic ha

  4. Rocío says:

    She looks good. I remember she looked really gaunt some years ago. I cannot comment on diets since I hardly understand them.

  5. Karen says:

    As she’s maintained this low weight for so long I imagine it’s not a precise 80/20. It’s she’s almost always restrictive, but once in a blue moon enjoys a non-restrictive meal with her husband. 80/20 is just the buzz word, but realistically is probably 99/1.

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I feel like she’s *saying* all the right things but doesn’t necessarily practice what she preaches. She looks less emaciated than she has in the past but I think she still has the look of someone who is severely restricting herself. And that hair color ages her.

      • Bridget says:

        These ladies know what they’re supposed to say when it comes to keeping in shape and being thin. We rarely get the truth of how hard it is.

      • Carol says:

        I think she had an eating disorder for a while. She apparently talked about it in some interview, at least that is what I was told by a friend. I believe she had an eating disorder because that girl looked positively emaciated in photos at one point

    • qwerty says:

      She may eat 80% healthy and 20% treats but I’d guess her overall caloric intake is very low regardless of those proportions

      • Wren says:

        Probably. Some people really don’t eat all that much nor do they want to. A friend of mine is really skinny but she just naturally doesn’t eat very much. She tries to gain weight and eat more but she can never maintain it. It’s not a question of starving herself, she’s a small person with a small appetite. So who knows? Kate may be one of those people. Or she may not be and be pulling all of this healthy eating spiel out of her ass.

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      Yeah, I wonder if she’s getting the nutrients she needs. Her hair has receded pretty fair back on her head (hair loss a common sign of malnutrition). There’s more to being healthy than just being skinny.

    • You don't know me says:

      Right. I was thinking it is more like 99.2 to .08 percent. Eating a burger while on vacation is NOT 80/20.

    • Egla says:

      I have a good diet I think. It’s been years that I don’t gain weight nor loose it. So I am pretty constant and it works for me. I also eat a loot of sugar and dairy (a loot of issues there with my belly but I don’t care). If I wanted to loose weight I would need to restrict myself so much about a lot of things I love to eat and I know I would be miserable but I guess you get used after a while. I tried with sugar a few months ago, I started dreaming cakes and it made me sad so I went and ate for a whole weekend all the cakes and ice creams i wanted and I was happy. My boyfriend offered :p

  6. ds says:

    Ah, I’m just for eating healthy. I’m constantly on my computer but try to strech whenever possible, do some yoga, walk every night, and eat reguralry. I don’t eat pizza every day but I do when I feel like it. No regime, just a lot of veggies and a walk. I look the same all the time. Get a few kilos in winter but who cares. If I were a celebrity and looks were my selling point I’d probably think like all these women, but extremes are never good, so I’m not prodiets, most of them just have yo-yo effect.

  7. littlemissnaughty says:

    Okay, I can barely contain myself here and usually, I don’t comment on celebrities’ weight on the frickin’ internet. But she’s talked about it a few times over the years and now again and can we PLEASE not? She is a horrible example to talk about any kind of diet because she frequently gets down to a weight that suggests she barely eats anything. Even allowing for the possiblity that is naturally slim. Like Kim K., I think she’s flat-out lying and it pisses me off. You do NOT look like this if you eat burgers etc., even 20% of the time. If you look at Olivia Munn, you know she works out and she works hard to be this slim but it still looks healthy. These pics are quite flattering and no, she doesn’t look bad. But google her and you see that depending on what she wears or who she stands next to, it’s a different story.

    I really don’t mean to rag on her because it’s her life and her body but come on. She’s baiting us now.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      i agree and she contradicted herself endlessly. Lies.

    • Jen43 says:

      This is what I was thinking. I agree with everyone who says it’s the 99/1 diet. I mean, come on.

    • Kitten says:

      I agree with most of what you said but I believe she has cheat days here and there. I believe her on that. I do believe that the rest of the time she is on a highly restrictive diet. No question about it.

      You have to think that she said she used to work out an hour or more a day. If you’re eating a restrictive diet of only omelets, fruit and vegg, and working out an hour or more a day, you will be very VERY thin.

      I’ve been as thin as her several times in my life and it was only achieved through restricting and running. That being said, I would have a burger, muffin or the occasional cookie in front of friends and family as a smokescreen.

      (I’m not saying she has an ED or anything, just sharing how I was able to get down to a really low weight.)

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        Oh yes, I know exactly how to do restrictive diets without anyone suspecting I’m overdoing it. Not that I’ve ever been anywhere close to her weight.

        I just got angry because she’s been a poster girl for extremely skinny girls for over a decade and I do NOT appreciate someone like her lying to young girls about this sh*t. I honestly prefer Gisele then. I believe what she’s selling (within reason). When Kate Bosworth tells me she does 80/20 and regularly indulges in all kinds of delicious food, I side-eye her so hard I might hurt myself. Give me Kate Hudson any day. And like I said, these pics are quite nice but a few months ago I came across some where it was another story. An that is not achieved by more than a cookie a week. At most.

      • Kitten says:

        Yeah, she doesn’t strike me as someone who even allows herself to enjoy food all that much. I get the feeling that even when/if she has a burger that she probably feels guilty as sh*t about it.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      Thank you @LittleMissNaughty. I like to believe the same – that they’re lying. I had fourth baby in October and have 10-15 pounds yet to lose. These stories make me feel like a failure, like if I just had enough will power I could be back in my regular clothes. I tell myself all the things you tell yourself – they’re lying, they have chefs and trainers and nannies and whatever. But then I think that’s just an excuse and the real issue is my lack of will power.

    • cr says:

      She looks better than she did at the 2014 Met Gala, where she was close to her scary thin 2006 days. But the reality is, she’s been on a restricted diet for 10 years now.
      And while some of may be of health issues, a lot of it is because as a fashionista/actress there’s terrible pressure to be even thinner than ‘naturally slender’.

    • QQ says:

      PREACH! she really really is the worst person to line up here to give food advice of any kind when she always makes herself sound at best Disordered eating, she gives me Victoria Beckham in that these are women that go a certain crazy length to ensure fitting a sample size and be the thinnest in the crew

  8. Merritt says:

    Does Kate Bosworth even make movies anymore?

    • Fiorella says:

      You could check imdb but I think no

    • Lisa says:

      Interesting that she’s now hawking acne cream and somehow she’s an advocate for healthy eating while having of history of unhealthy skinniness. She’s barely an actress at this point. The only time you see or hear about her now is when she’s dressed up at some paid function.

    • cr says:

      She’s actually gotten better roles the last couple of years, at least better roles on paper, both movie and tv. But I don’t think anyone really watches them, or remembers that she’s in them. She does her acting stuff, and her fashionista stuff, but she’s not really famous gossip-wise anymore.

    • amilu says:

      It’s from 5 years ago, but….last night I watched her in a dumb/cute rom-com from 2011, Life Happens. I think it’s only the second time I’ve seen her acting in anything (Superman was the first). She and Krysten Ritter were both good/funny/likable.

  9. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    So she doesn’t eat dairy, but she eats dairy – goat cheese and milk, and she doesn’t eat sugar, but she eats sugar, ketchup…that was a waste of time.

    • LAK says:


      Ketchup is loaded with sugar, and goat’s milk is still diary.

      It’s amazing the tangled and usually misinformed, deliberately or not, web people weave in order to pretend to justify their decisions.

      • Poisonous Lookalike says:

        Yeah, the wording isn’t the best. As was said upthread, for some people consuming goat milk doesn’t cause unpleasant effects, such as bloating, diarrhea, skin rashes, etc. Some people can’t handle pasteurized/homogenized cow milk; for some of them, raw cow milk may be digested well. I’m one of the unfortunate ones who cannot eat any cow dairy product except for butter, so on the rare occasion when I indulge in cheese, it needs to be goat cheese.

      • Jwoolman says:

        The protein is different in milk from different animals. So someone may be allergic to cow’s milk but not goat’s or sheep’s milk (both used commonly for cheese). Goat’s milk apparently is actually closer to human milk in general composition and so can be good for babies. Dairy is commonly used to mean cow’s milk and its products, and if other animal milks are meant generally the adjective is used (goat cheese, for example).

        It sounds as though she’s just trying to feel good under stress, probably particularly when she’s working. I have to eat very carefully under a deadline myself. If she has allergies or intolerances, staying away from some allergens most of the time can allow her to eat them sometimes. I’m like that with tomatoes and dairy cheese. You may have less problems when relaxed than when under stress also, because to the body stress is stress whether if it’s from that hamburger or your job. And stress tends to be additive. This is particularly likely if it’s basically a digestive issue

    • Pansy says:

      They sell (for like $30 a bottle!) a non-processed “ketchup” that’s sugar free that some of my friends use bc they’re doing some super restrictive diet right now. It looks like ketchup, but I bet that’s where the similarities stop. I doubt she’s using Heinz like us normal folk.

    • paleokifaru says:

      It drives me nuts when people don’t pay attention to detail like that…or worse don’t seem to understand it. I ate a vegetarian diet and cut out dairy for two years but I still ate eggs and I didn’t watch products to ensure they didn’t have dairy, etc. And yet I had friends who would say I was vegan even though I never used that label because it would be incorrect. Now that I cook for more than myself I do incorporate meat into meals, although I will frequently skip those parts, and I certainly wouldn’t call myself a vegetarian.
      I’ve known several people, with graduate degrees in biological areas, who claim they’re vegetarian and then order fish. If I were their advisors I would fail them immediately for not recognizing the correct Kingdom for fish.

      • Colleen says:

        Hah, are these fish-eating vegetarians from the south?

        My daughter has been vegetarian for a decades and when we moved to NC from the North, we were highly amused at the number of people who honestly considered vegetarians as people who merely omit red meat. She would get questions weekly from people curious about her diet, and would constantly be asked, “But you eat chicken, right?”

      • paleokifaru says:

        Hahahaha! No they weren’t. Although I have met those people.

    • Carol says:

      Aren’t eggs dairy? I never know how eggs are classified in food groups.

      • Kitten says:

        Oh be careful…last time I said that eggs being considered “dairy” is debatable, I got a rash of sh*t from everybody telling me in no uncertain terms that they are NOT dairy lol. I guess it’s a sensitive subject for some peeps 😉

      • Susan says:

        Eggs are dairy only in the sense that they are placed in the dairy section of the supermarket near the creams and cheeses, etc. When was the last time you milked a chicken?

      • Milo says:

        I’m not sure how they are labeled now, but when I think back to the food pyramid in fifth grade lol, the big part at the bottom was the meat, eggs, fish, bean portion. But fifth grade was 1990 sooooooo, things have probably changed lol.

      • Wren says:

        No, eggs are not dairy. Dairy products are made from milk, secretions of the mammary glands. Dairy products can come from any mammal, the most common being cows, sheep and goats. Some cultures have even used horses.

        Eggs come from birds, who are not mammals. Eggs are quite literally the ovum, fertilized or unfertilized, of the bird, most commonly chickens but also ducks, geese or quail.

        The basic idea of an egg yolk and milk are similar; they provide complete nutrition for the offspring, but they are very different in origin and use. Eggs come from the reproductive tract of the bird, starting at the ovary and developing as they move down the tract to the cloaca (bird butthole) where they are fully formed and ready to be laid. Milk comes from the mammary glads, a speperate system from the reproductive tract. Milk nurishes the young after birth, after gestation is complete; while the egg yolk nurishes the fetus until it is ready for “birth”, as in hatching. The egg yolk is more akin to the placenta. Also, to have milk the animal must give birth. To get eggs the bird must only be of sufficient age, actual reproduction is not required.

      • Carol says:

        Thanks guys:) I’ve been told by peeps that eggs were considered dairy but I couldn’t understand the reasoning behind it since as @Susan so eloquently stated “When was the last time you milked a chicken.” I guess as @Wren explains it, egg yolk and milk provide similar nutrition for their offspring so maybe that’s why some people consider eggs dairy even though it actually isn’t. Did I get that right?

      • Kitten says:

        I warned you, Carol lol.

      • Wren says:

        I just like people to have correct information. 🙂 Calling eggs dairy is like calling a dolphin a fish since it swims in the ocean and has fins. There are many similarities, yes, but they are very different things.

      • paleokifaru says:

        Thanks for chiming in there ladies! I never heard people think eggs are dairy but I also have never considered fish to be plants so….

  10. Izzy says:

    “Kate Bosworth doesn’t eat”

    There, I fixed that for ya. Sorry, I know plenty of people who are naturally very slim. But she has noticeably whittled herself down to a stick through the years.

    • Jen43 says:

      I would put money on this.

    • HeidiM says:

      She looked worse when she was with ASkars, but I assumed that was drug use?!?

    • lucy2 says:

      That was my first thought on seeing this headline.

      I do think she looks healthier than she did a while back though. Hopefully she is taking care of herself.

    • my3cents says:

      Thank you.
      Or more like 80% water20% lettuce.
      Sorry you can’t have it both ways-unhealthily stick thin and lecture people about healthy eating. Not buying.

  11. Aang says:

    Her face and arms look fine but the prominent collar bone and sternum makes anyone look like a skeleton in my eyes. I know it’s the look to have but personally I find it harsh. I’ve got a friend who eats super healthy all week and indulges on Sunday. Works well for her, and seems a sensible way to stay on track because you know a burger or pizza is not that far away.

    • Ariadne says:

      Some people have a naturally prominent sternum and collarbone even at a normal BMI. I do – and even when I was pregnant last year I had one. It’s got more obvious with age and it gets so annoying hearing about how it makes you look skeletal.

      • Milo says:

        I’m technically obese by BMI standards and my collarbones are prominent. When I’m at my normal weight (which is still overweight, my collar bones appear to jut out of my chest, and all of my ribs are visible.

    • amurph says:

      I think she might have gotten small implants, which makes her sternum a little more obvious. She didn’t have as much in the chest in the past years and then all of a sudden she does.

  12. Snowflake says:

    I don’t know how people can be on super restrictive diets. I love to eat .

    • Kimbers says:

      Loveto eat too! Unfortunately i do a similar diet bc of inflammation that occurs after eating processed and some very ordinary foods. After a bit the inflammation effects my intestines and makes me tired as well. I’m healthy bc of the foods i eat and weigh less as a result. Once your pallette gets used to not having artificial flavors it’s hard to eat certain bad foods.

      • Prim says:

        I’m pretty much gluten free, dairy free these days as I have to cook that way for my son. I never thought I had an issue with gluten or dairy, ever. I always ate what I wanted, I’ve always been thin and I never looked into diet much. Now, I’m amazed at actually how sensitive my body is to processed foods and gluten makes me feel awful.

        Making bread at home for my son has been the most surprising thing. I don’t know for sure if it’s the preservatives or gluten or a combination of both of those things in regular bread, but I feel ill if I eat it.

        It is amazing really how a lot of basic foods are inflammatory. I was living quite happily with a bit of bloating, slightly rashy skin, slight joint pain. If it weren’t for my son I would never have worked out that I also had a subtle issue with inflammation.

      • Bridget says:

        @prim: I don’t have gluten issues, but store bought bread (even the most whole wheat, hippy bread) makes me feel icky. I’ve always just assumed it was preservatives.

      • Prim, ditto here. I am gluten free for a year now and I feel great. I didn’t realize that slight bloating and or indigestion was related to my gluten intake. When you realize just how much processed foods we eat, it’s staggering. I’ve learned to make s phenomenal gluten free bread using rice flour instead. Rice has no gluten. I’m also dairy free. It was hard giving up butter and cheese but I had to. I’m also caffeine free for many years now. I’m working on giving up sugar, I’m almost there. I have honey more often than sugar. I eat veggies, fruits, nuts, meats, seafood and eggs. Eating this way means I cook healthier with less preservatives and “closer to the ground”. I’m not paleo, I just want to eat more natural, preservative free foods. For me it’s not about my weight, but about my health.

      • Prim says:

        Home made gluten free bread is wonderful! If you’d told me a few years ago that I’d be making a fresh loaf of it every day I would never have believed it possible, but I love doing all of that now. It’s easier doing it for a child I think though. I’m not sure I would have had it in me to make such a big dietary change if I’d just been doing it for myself. My symptoms weren’t really intense enough for me to be motivated to change.

      • byland says:

        I’m basically allergic to everything, so when my allergies are acting up and I have to restrict my diet I pretty much live on unsweetened applesauce and gluten-free toast with avocado.

        I mean, I’m allergic to chocolate and chicken, among about thirty other things. Chicken! I didn’t even know that was a real thing until they told us (I found out when I was a kid).

        I’m on a partially restrictive diet right now that’s overseen by a nutritionist because of my allergies and my twin’s food sensitivities. A few things make them really unhappy when passed through breast milk. Luckily, they’re not sensitive to much of anything I’m crazy about, although broccoli (my favorite – I miss you!) makes my son cry like someone took away his favorite teether. So it had to go. I’m not crying, no, not at all.

    • Brittney B. says:

      I love to eat too. And guess what? Before I eliminated dairy and eggs (in addition to meat, which had been long gone for at least a decade), that wasn’t true.

      It wasn’t until I stopped eating eggs and milk that I finally appreciated the art of cooking. It wasn’t until I eliminated all the foods that required misery that I began to seek out new recipes and restaurants, and educate myself about the differences between plant and animal protein (here’s a hint: animal products have protein because of the plants they eat)… anyway, it wasn’t until this most “restrictive” diet of my life that I finally stopped resorting to boring and unhealthy and overused staples, and finally stopped rejecting the majority of processed ingredients, and finally started growing my own vegetables and herbs… And the result? I LOVE FOOD! I finally understand the intimacy of improvising and preparing a meal for someone, using the plant life around us, and I’m fully enjoying the benefits of a more connected body. I know about delicious ingredients because I had to seek them out, and it’s a shame that it took such privileged circumstances to reveal it.

      My love for animals was the trigger, but my skin, hair, and weight are also very grateful. So I get it from both sides. And I loathe the association between cutting out dairy and following an unhealthily “restrictive” diet. Think about it logically: none of us should be drinking infant milk from another species,

  13. Hegimal says:

    My comment went missing so here goes again:

    I have a dodgy gallbladder after three kids and I roughly follow a Sandra Cabot recommended diet which cuts out all wheat and dairy to minimize gallbladder attacks.

    It feels really good not eating wheat and dairy! No bloating, flat tummy, increased energy etc. Though in KB’s world I’m sure it’s just about staying suuuuuuper skinny.

      Yup, I eat glutenfree, dairyfree and meatless because of several health issues and it has had such an amazing impact on my general health. I have so much more energy now that I’m eating plantbased. It probably seems restrictive to most people, but when you feel so much better it doesn’t feel restrictive at all because I’m able to do so much more now instead of feeling sick most of the time and dragging myself through the day.

      I’m not sure about Kate Bosworth though. She does seem to be someone who could be obsessive about eating. Maybe it’s because that’s her career now, but every interview with her mentions dieting.

      • qwerty says:

        Yeah, I went vegan a year ago and I end every meal stuffed up to my eyeballs but keep a steady weight with zero effort (my bmi is somewhere around 19,5 I think) because it’s sooo difficult to eat too many calories when they come from plants. A huge bowl of salad plus a plate of rice with veggies will have way less calories than a steak with fries (I do eat fries tho! ). I used to be pretty nervous about gaining weight with age but now I think it’d be actually a challenge lol. My acne cleared almost completly as well and I really struggled with it – even as a vegetarian.

    She needs to eat something for God sakes!!! Horribly thin and unattractive!

  15. Jade says:

    More like 99% air and 1% lettuce leaf.
    This girl has had an eating disorder most of her adult life.

    • Lisa says:

      She was also a smoker in the past. That probably helped keep the weight down. I wonder if she still smokes and yet has the nerve to talk about healthy eating while having a history of looking emaciated.

  16. poppy says:

    ketchup on everything?!?!
    that’s pretty sugary isn’t it? not to mention yuck, like you have to disguise how bland/bad food tastes? she can’t get tasty bites without?

  17. siri says:

    No sugar- but ketchup. No dairy- but goat cheese & milk. Ketchup on everything- why would we want to listen to this? She doesn’t look unhealthy, at least not in these pics, but she DOES look kind of miserable and tense.

  18. meme says:

    why is she even famous? people are interested in what a skeleton eats?

    • Fiorella says:

      Used to act, insanely pretty, controversially thin, had interesting relationship with a-skars, is a fashion girl always at the shows, married to a director. More reasons than many!

    • Lambda says:

      Oh nice.

  19. Laura says:

    I have no comment on her diet, but she and her husband are SO creepy. They constantly just post about each other on instagram it seems very unhealthy.

    • Liz says:

      I agree, I’ve always noticed that she promotes her husband every chance she gets. I wonder if he’s not that talented and she’s covering for him. I see a split in the future. She’s just too smothering.

  20. Fiorella says:

    Ketchup on everything sounds kind of gross.
    There’s nothing crazy about 80/20. I mean I have relatives who were on 100 diet no junk for years because it was a war zone and they only had their farm things , any meat was sold too so almost vegetarian …. For years.

  21. Barrett says:

    I had bacterial infection from food poisoning. I went on antibiotics 3 times to balance myself w help of GI specialist. With that said I had to give up dairy for awhile bc I was intolerant of it. Miraculously after 3rd round. I can eat it sparingly. I am grateful. I had lost 10 pounds from the ordeal. I noticed once I ate even a tiny bit of dairy I looked less gaunt.

    It taught me to love a little bit of meat on bones. It’s better for the face even if I’m not a bikini model or celebrity like Kate.

  22. Amaria says:

    It’s not specifically burgers that make one sleepy after a meal – any calorie-heavy meal can do that, if it triggers a big insulin release (insulin makes one sleepy). God, I’m so tired of celebs discussing their diets, as if they were some experts. I guess it’s inevitable in the social media age, when everyone is suddenly so special, with their water sensitivity and inflammation from breathing (unless they drink magic Himalayan water and breathe gluten-free air).

  23. molli3 says:

    I gave up Wheat and Sugar 4 years ago and have not had a single weight issue since, I feel great, and when I’m on vacation, anything goes.
    I simply follow the rule that I have to really, really, really wants something in order to eat wheat or sugar. I find that not a whole lot passes that test, but if it does, well then, I’m going to have it.
    Works great for me.

  24. Isa says:

    I’ve almost completely eliminated sugar and wheat, although I did cheat last weekend, but it’s amazing how fast your stomach goes down.
    I still eat burgers they’re just wrapped in lettuce now. I don’t even miss the bun. The only problem is having to cook all the time. Sometimes I just want to pop a frozen pizza in the oven but now I have to make a fathead pizza or a cauliflower crust.

    • Kitten says:

      How do you make cauliflower crust?
      I wanna try! BF is a pizza fanatic but we’re both trying to avoid bread right now.

    • Luca76 says:

      Oh wow I’m planning on making a cauliflower crust pizza this week. Nervous and looking for a good recipe.

  25. JeanGenie says:

    Is she really stupid enough to think that goat’s cheese and milk isn’t dairy?
    If the milk isn’t coming from your mother, then you’re eating “dairy”.

    • Jwoolman says:

      It’s very common here to use dairy for cow’s milk products. Goat and sheep products are specified as goat’s milk, goat cheese, etc. if just dairy is said, it’s assumed that cows are the source.

      So if someone says they have a dairy allergy, it’s virtually certain they mean allergy to cow’s milk products. They might be able to eat goat cheese or drink goat’s milk. On food package labels, I would assume cow’s milk if the potential allergens list includes dairy or milk.

  26. alexis says:

    She’s gonna have to chose her ass or her face in a few more years, or however the saying goes

  27. I’ve thought she was anorexic for years but I did think she looked a little bit healthier in this recent pic, even if just slightly. To go from naturally thin but healthy like she was in Blue Crush to her shocking, skeletal, frame not long after when the fame, famous boyfriends and public scrutiny that comes with it hit, was a vivid image.

  28. Algernon says:

    I haven’t cut any food groups out of my diet (I’m lucky to not have any allergies/sensitivities), but I also don’t eat everything every day (as in I’m not having pancakes at breakfast, a burger at lunch, and pizza for dinner), and I watch my portions. Portion control is such an important part of dieting. I kept a food journal religiously for a couple years while I was really focused on losing weight, and I weighed and measured everything. Now I can eyeball it because I know what proper portions look like, but it really changes how you eat. I also started cooking a lot more at home. My husband and I cook together most of the time; we usually only eat out, whether it’s at a proper restaurant or fast food, once a week. The rest of our meals from breakfast to dinner are things we make together. It’s a lot easier to manage your weight when you’re not consuming a lot of preservative-stuffed packaged meals.

  29. Lisa says:

    Strict? I don’t think so.

  30. JenniferJustice says:

    She isn’t quite as skeletal as she was just a few years ago, but she stills appears on the brink of emaciation. Her hair has been quite thin since she came on the scene and I’ve wondered if it’s due to malnutrition. Her clavical is so pronounced and she has the “big headed” lollypop look.

  31. lovelym says:

    I just watched Blue Crush the other day, one of my favorites. I remember being so envious of her body in this movie. Slim but fit and healthy looking!

    • tracking says:

      Shame she didn’t seem to feel the same way–I agree she looked fabulous then.

      • Kitten says:

        To be fair to her, she has said many times that she ate twice as much as she normally does and worked out like crazy to get her body to look like it did in Blue Crush. She said that is not at all her default body type, that she wasn’t comfortable at that weight, and that it was too much work for her to maintain it.

      • tracking says:

        Kitten, that make sense though it seems she’s working pretty hard (in a different way) to maintain her current very skinny frame.

  32. Penelope says:

    Wow, those flats really are fug. I’ve always thought she was beautiful though.

  33. kok says:

    I eat healthy and exercise regularly but…..

    • Jwoolman says:

      I used to feel the same way. Now I can take it or leave it. If you found out that cheese was giving you bad headaches, you’d give it up unless you like pain.

  34. mrsrockstar says:

    Never found her attractive because to me she lacks some joie de vivre. Just want to say that the best first step I took was no fast food. One day I smelled that McDonalds smell and haven’t had any of that for years and have no craving. I know a lot of you guys seem to be better than I was in eating healthy but there are still people who may not be as diligent …little kids love happy meals and mothers need a break so it’s easy to grab and go.

    • kok says:

      Those mothers usually end up being obese, and their children as well. If you are feeding your kids stuff like that, you might as well not even care about their health. (not talking specifically to you talking to the mothers who do that bc the kids like it/and they ‘need a break’)

  35. cakecakecake says:

    I’m not interested in leaning out that much and nothing about her physically appeals to me…she is not a bad actress though.

  36. Anon says:

    She looks like she’s in a healthy weight range to me. I think many people have forgotten what “normal” looks like because the majority of people are overweight and obese. I’m as thin as her and I eat a hamburger once or twice a week. All you have to do is lower calories for other meals to make up for it.

    • cr says:

      It seems to me that most of Kate’s weight comparisons are to Kate when she was younger, not to other people. Even throwing out her Blue Crush weight, which is an outlier for her, she’s well documented to be the more slender side of ‘naturally slender’ since around 2006, which is when she got frightfully thin.

  37. trishy says:

    It drives me CRAZY when so many celebrities talk about “clean eating” and then smoke like chimneys. Ridiculous hypocrisy.

  38. Tris says:

    She eats olive oil for lunch?

  39. Andrea says:

    I am overweight, technically obese on the BMI scale. I have PCOS and have tried everything to lose weight. I spin, bootcamp, yoga, pilates, etc; I workout 3-5 times per week. I also have been calorie counting for 1 1/2 years and seeing a naturopath. She tested my hormones and they are majorly out of whack and I took a food sensitivity test and have eliminated wheat, eggs, kidney beans, pineapple, bananas, and peanuts. I still haven’t lost anything. I am now on herbs to help balance my hormones and hoping something helps. I am so envious of people who can lose weight and would love to lose 40 lbs.

    • Jwoolman says:

      PCOS is notorious for making weight loss difficult. If you aren’t already being anal about tracking everything that goes into your mouth, you might try that. A little digital scale might make it easier. It’s very easy to be off enough on food measurements to make the difference between losing and maintaining. Another problem area is counting exercise calories – those estimates can be seriously inflated so easily. Many people recommend eating back only a fraction of calories burned in exercise for that reason. Also I often see it recommended to be careful to eat enough of you are exercising a lot – apparently eating too little can stall weight loss also. It shouldn’t be this difficult, but the natural mechanisms for managing our weight seem to go bonkers on us nowadays too often.

  40. Zenith says:

    I too am wheat/dairy/lactose/soya/sugarfree due to a raft of auto-immune issues. It was a pain at first but I have noticed a huge difference in my overall health.

    Still stuff my face with Dairy Milk on a semi-regular basis – there’s always an exception! 🙂

  41. amilu says:

    I think Kate looks lovely here.

    I watched her last night in what I think is the first time I’ve seen her acting — a comedy called Life Happens (with Krysten Ritter). She was scary skinny, but she was otherwise really good in the movie, which was a dumb/cute rom-com.

    Edit – Oops, second time I’ve seen her acting. I did see Superman.
