Henstridge's Dangerous Diet

SPECIES beauty NATASHA HENSTRIDGE spent years swallowing diet pills in a bid to keep her weight down - insisting her dangerous obsession with staying thin seriously damaged her body.
The former model was so intent to stick to the slim style favoured by Hollywood, she would try anything to stay slender - and admits taking a cocktail of different weight-loss drugs.
But the star realised all the slimming aids had damaged her body - because her metabolism completely changed after she got "clean".
She says, "There’s always pressure in this business to stay thin to the degree that I’ve done some things that probably weren’t the smartest things in the world.
"I’ve probably taken some pills that are taken off the market these days, that were like, ‘Oh, but it just gives me an extra boost when I’m working out,' and it seems innocent enough and it’s over the counter.
"Those things have a huge effect on your metabolism and all of a sudden, when you decide to go clean and healthy, things are changing in your body because you’ve done a little bit of damage.
"I’ve been to Chinese herbalists who’ve given me things. When you’re doing some things that are damaging you, you don’t really realise it at the time. You think it’s innocent and healthy - Chinese herbs.
"That sounds healthy and then you realise, what the hell is in the stuff? And people glamorise the whole thing because you’re thinner and you’ve been doing this stuff to your body."
