Bob Geldof - Geldof Criticised For 'Juice Diet'

Bob Geldof's daughter Peaches has come under fire from health experts after championing a controversial slimming plan.
The slender socialite attributed her recent weight loss to a 'juice diet', consisting of liquefied vegetables and no solid foods for a month.
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 10 pounds.' I will lose it then I'm back going mental for the chips. I'll juice and then I eat chips."
Cath Collins, a spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association, insists Geldof was "irresponsible to promote" the diet.
Collins says, "Peaches joins a long line of celebs who are brain dead 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."
