Katie Holmes’ Scientology Detox Diet Raises Concerns

After a recent dinner at Hollywood’s El Sole with Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise and John Lithgow, concerns have grown over Katie’s appearance. Onlookers described her as “super skinny,” “gaunt,” and “miserable.” Maybe it was the company? Or, other gossip hounds suggest Katie is on an extreme Scientology detox diet to prepare her for pregnancy.

The diet is called the “Purification Rundown,” and it is highly controversial. It involves a regimented mix of exercise, supplements in the form of Vitamin B3 (Niacin), a drink called “CalMag” consisting of calcium, magnesium and cider vinegar, and trips to the sauna five days a week for up to five hours. One source told The Insider, “sometimes it makes her lethargic. Tom’s encouraging her to stick to the diet because they are hoping to conceive baby number two.”

The Purification Rundown detox diet is further explained in the book Clear Body, Clear Mind, written by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.

The problem with this is that your actually don’t know if Katie does some Scientology program or not. Neither do I. But I do know how to research what this Purification Rundown is:

The Purification Rundown is explained on and in a Google Knol.

“The Purification Rundown is a tightly supervised regimen of exercise, sauna, nutrition and a properly ordered schedule which includes sufficient rest. All of this together results in the elimination of drug residues and other toxins from the body’s fatty tissues.”

I think Katie could probably get pregnant just fine without the ridiculous detox diet! The no detox diet seems to work just fine for the rest of the world.

It’s a shame… she no longer looks healthy… regardless of what makeup she is or isn’t wearing or what kind of clothes she has on. She just looks sickly… if that’s what she’s chosen, so be it. However, I’m concerned for Suri… she will be brought up this way and won’t know any other way. Katie has a choice and with her Catholic background, I’m surprised she has gotten herself into this. Her brother-in-law passed away this past week and I wonder whether Tom’s even allowing her to mourn.
