I mean't to add this a while ago but did anyone else see a programme on telly (on BBC Three) following Natalie Cassidy around as she investigated fad diets and went on a few herself? it was called 'Natalie Cassidy's Diet Secrets'

Synopsis:

Actress Natalie Cassidy, best-known for portraying teenager Sonia in Eastenders, lifts the lid on her secret past of fad dieting and investigates where these so-called 'celebrity diets' come from, who's doing them, and whether any of them actually work. She meets 20-year-old Vikki, who's been trying these fad diets since the age of 12, and together they try
the extreme maple syrup diet, which reduces calorie intake to just over 300 per day.


After losing all the weight I thought she would be very much..about the health thing and every one must do it...but instead we got a decent docu about the bad message that is given out to the public and teens in particular about weight and being overweight..she went to schools with shadow pictures one of a slim person one fat and asked the children who would have the most friends...of course they picked slim...nobody picked the larger image....She also went to The Sun newspaper (the only paper or mag that would speak to her) and really criticised them for their inaccuracies in what they report celebs do to diet...as she discovered much of it is made up rubbish...that photo even that the Sun had of her in a bikini she also give out about because she was actually making this programme at the time and was on one of these hardcore diet fads that she would never normally do and had lost alot of weight quickly and it was then that the Sun had got that photo and put it in their paper
It was amazing listening to the Sun guy she was talking to aswell who openly admitted that if Natalie put the weight back on it would be a great story for them and something they would like to see happen...Since this the Sun have already stated that she is putting the weight back on....when the fact of the matter was that early pic could never be maintained  
Last night I see aswell now that they are running the story of her unable to keep her bikini figure  and Why in the mag 'Closer'

Its a crazy world

I'm confused......is her new figure down to the maple syrup diet she was on because I've read articles where she's supposed to be eating healthily and had a trainer putting her through gruelling exercises? She's even got a bestselling DVD out where she goes through her exercise routine......apparently, it's one of the best selling exercise dvds of all time!

It's interesting what The Sun man said......does he mean they're happy showing bigger sized celebrities, or does he mean if slim celebrities put weight back on....that makes a good story?

No she had a trainer alright which helped her get down the weight she had when she was on Eastenders but that was still about a stone or two over the bikini figure which she only got when she went on the crazy fad diets.....I firmly believe that girl is not mean't to be that thin

As for the Sun guy ..if only it was that he wanted to photgraph more weighty celebs...no he definitely mean't if she put the weight on it would be a great story for them as they can criticise her and point the finger...these papers do this all the time

I know the Sun campaigned to stop having size 0 models on the catwalk and they seem to promote healthy eating and exercising to cut down weight rather than faddy dieting.......but they like showing people like Judy Finnegan, Vanessa Feltz and Fern Britton (before she lost weight) in unflattering holiday pics too because they know it sells papers.

I'd be interested seeing if the Closer article is an interview with Natalie Cassidy or not?

They also criticise what I consider slim celebs by saying they are fat when they aren't and constantly run articles about celebs dietary plans...they also still have their stick thin page three girl too don't they  

Yeah that will be interesting to se are they talking to her directly or just about her
