Try the 'True Blood' Diet: No Blood Drinking Required


Krsitin BauerTo be a vampire vixen on True Blood, one must be in pretty good form to sport the latex dresses and skimpy attire that comes with the job. Kristin Bauer, who plays Pam on the series, recently talked to PopEater about how she stays in shape and her diet, which consists of ... very little.

"I realized as long as I'm in this business, I'm going to be hungry," Bauer recently said.

Such a healthy message for all the little vampire-wannabes out there!

"The camera really does add 10 pounds," Bauer continued. "I'm trying to stay under the weight I want to look like on TV. It's a good incentive to stay slim and is probably adding years to my life."

And when she does actually eat?

"I'm vegetarian, so I live on carbs," she said.

Besides dieting, she also works out in the gym, especially after trying on costumes for the show.

"After any wardrobe fitting, I hit the gym three times more than the week before."

That pesky wardrobe isn't very kid-friendly either says the actress, who will be 37 in November.

"My husband and I are still getting to know each other, so adding kids right now -- especially with Pam and that wardrobe -- wouldn't work. I'd love to learn how to juggle it all. Maybe in a few years, we might move into that area."

I'm all for motivation in whatever ways you can find it -- whether it be vampy vampire attire or a pair of skinny jeans. But to hear her say she's always hungry and that her wardrobe is part of the reason she wants to put kids on hold, well, that sounds a little overboard and not so healthy to me.

What do you think of Kristin Bauer's approach to staying slim?

If parents are letting their little vampire-wannabees watch this show, they have more problems on their hands than her "health plan". Actresses do not get into the biz of being role models

Many people believe that it’s not possible to consume all of your necessary nutrients without meat in your diet. Actually, vegetarian diets can be nutritionally balanced, but it will take some planning to do this. Research shows that poor meal planning is the cause of nutritional deficiencies in vegetarian diets, not the absence of animal foods. Well-balanced vegetarian diets have actually been approved for pregnant and lactating women, children, adolescents, the elderly population and competitive athletes. Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B12, iron, calcium are the common nutrients that are lacking in a vegetarian diet.

Eating a vegetarian diet and exercising at the gym are great ways to stay healthy and keep fit. However, if the motivation to do so is to look thinner than what one might consider healthy, than that might be the most optimal case. There is a chance to going overboard and over dieting, developing eating problems and ending up hurting your health instead. I hope she sends the right message to her fans about her eating habits.
