A picture may say a thousand words, but it doesn’t always tell the truth. Katie Holmes has come under quite a bit a criticism due to some pictures of her daughter at a New York treat shop. Tabloids have been making numerous slams regarding Suri’s diet and Katie’s responsibility as a parent. Holmes’ has rebuked the headlines and not let the buzz effect her parenting.
Paparazzi recently snapped shots of little Suri Cruise in the famous Serendipity 3, a New York Dessert hot spot. Suri was in the shop late with her mother, Katie Holmes. The various shots caught the child with candy and getting ice cream. Of course the media had a hay day. The images led to alluded facts claiming the child has an unhealthy diet full of sweets and treats. Holmes, surely irritated, was quoted stating, “she’s fine, thank you.”
All of this celeb hub-bub about the young daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes is almost simultaneous with other tabloid accusations that the child will surely be put on a rigid Scientology-based diet. According to a recent article about the Church of Scientology, at age five, children are required to embrace a low fat and sweets free diet. As Suri is now at that age, the gossip media has more than they can handle.

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.
