Kelly Preston is one of those celebs who seems cool, but also, at the same time, is someone I kind of want to shake and say, "What is your deal, woman?!" She's clearly got a few screws loose. (And I'm not saying that because she had a baby at nearly 50.) She is a Scientologist and married to sweet (but, let's be honest, also koo-koo) John Travolta after all, so 'nuff said. That being the case, we should probably take her post-pregnancy weight loss tips with a grain of salt, eh? But she's been running around, bragging about dropping 39 pounds since she gave birth at 48 (not exactly an age associated with fast metabolism!), and so you gotta wonder -- at least for a nanosecond -- "How did she do it?!"
Well, Kelly attributes her slim-down to fellow Scientologist Kirstie Alley's weight loss plan, Organic Liaison, OF COURSE! Sigh.
Of the pricey plan -- which requires you to take weird supplements that supposedly cleanse your colon, help you sleep, relax your muscles, "target cravings," and "boost natural energy" -- Kelly said, "It's pretty much the most genius thing ever ... I lost 39 pounds, have more energy than I had 20 years ago -- and I feel amazing!" Rrrrright ... and now she's the official spokesperson for the brand ... which was shown last year to be linked financially to the Church of Scientology. So, yeah, more proof we should be taking Kelly's claims with a reeeeeeeally fine grain of salt.
Truthfully, it does look to me like there are some good, honest guidelines in Kirstie's plan -- like eating high-fiber complex carbs paired with lean protein, tracking calories in and out, and focusing on organic fruits and veggies -- but this blatant plug by Kelly Preston is just further proof that most fad diets, diet plans, or "weight-loss tricks" involve major gimmicks. We don't need proprietary blend supplements or shakes with special fat-burning ingredients. We just need to eat right and work out. It's not a quick fix, and it's not as flashy or glamorous or headline-grabbing as "Kirstie Alley's organic Hollywood weight-loss plan," but it is the honest to goodness truth. And I'll take that over a money-making scam any day.
What do you think about Kelly Preston's weight-loss? Do you go on diets?
