Click for full size
Since Katie Holmes had daughter Suri in 2006, pals have periodically fretted about her weight, or lack of it. As recently as this spring, many wondered whether, at 32, Mrs. Tom Cruise was entering into scary-skinny territory. She was so gaunt, a pal tells OK!. Friends said, Katie, you look so much older; you need to put flesh on your bones.
Katie has gone to great lengths to be thin, like eating a raw-foods diet. When she wants to slim down for a role, she eats only unprocessed raw vegetables, says the source. Because of the sugar content, she tries not to eat fruit; if she does, she usually sticks to berries, because they have the lowest glycemic index.
On a typical raw-foods day, shell have carrot soup and a yam for lunch and broccoli for dinner, and shell keep a handful of raw almonds for a snack, says the source, who adds that the diet is extreme. She doesnt sustain it for long.
After shooting, Tom will take her out so she can pig out and get some much-needed protein, says an insider. Its another favorite of Katies. She does a lot of low- carb, high-protein. She and Tom love meat. They have steak houses, like Mastros and Cut, in Beverly Hills that they hit regularly. Katie starts with an iceberg wedge and then gets a lean cut of steak. Another insider says Katie also eats mostly organic food, avoiding anything processed. White flour and sugar are out, unless shes treating Suri.
And what shes doing is working. Katie appears to be around 130 pounds, celeb nutritionist Oz Garcia, Ph.D., who doesnt work with Katie, tells OK!. Shes in a healthy BMI.Ultimately, its about balance. She is a pretty level-headed Midwestern girl, her pal tells OK!. In the end, it makes sense that she chooses health.
