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.
