“Shocked my system with a vegan diet, special Pu-erh tea from China, and cupping since Friday! Who am I right now? This might be too clean!”
Jessica Simpson is one of the best examples of how Hollywood stars’ waistlines are over-analyzed and scrutinized if they so much as gain five pounds. But, since stars generally look so great, when they go public with their dietary and/or fitness habits, people understandably take interest.
In Simpson’s latest health kick, she has gone on a new age retreat with a healer named Master Wang, who runs a program called Total Vitality. She’s also gone vegan, which means not only no meat, but no animal-related food at all, including milk, cheese and eggs.
If you don’t know what “cupping” is, it’s an ancient Chinese healing practice where heated glass suction cups are placed on the skin in order to allegedly suck out toxins from the body.
And while Simpson is taking a Chinese tea widely associated with weight loss (Chinese Pu-erh tea), she refutes the notion that she is doing so to shed pounds.
In her VH1 show, “The Price of Beauty,” Simpson explores the extreme measures that women around the world take in order to be beautiful. No one knows if her new health approaches have been inspired by what she has learned from her show’s explorations.
Here is a complete review of Master Wang’s Total Vitality program.
