Miley Cyrus used to seem like one of those former Disney stars who was relatively well-adjusted (you know, by Lindsay Lohan standards). She has a sexy boyfriend, a cute dog, and yeah, although it seems she has a penchant for smoking certain illegal substances and her parents just went through a nasty divorce, I really thought she was keeping it together for the most part. But then she started to get really into working out. Like way too into it.
Want the truth about her workout addiction regimen? Her Pilates instructor, the famed Mari Winsor, recently spoke with Celebuzz and dished about how Miley's hardcore fitness plan has led to her extreme weight loss.
Reportedly, the moves, which are featured on Winsor’s Lower Body Pilates DVD available on GaiamTV, consists of exercising the waist, the glutes, the buttocks, and the inner and outer thighs to ensure a maximum full-impact workout. Winsor says Miley practices these moves six times a week at her studio in Los Angeles.

While there's nothing wrong with having a healthy habit of sweating it out once (or even twice!) a day, I'm not the only one who's gotten suspicious about Miley's fitness obsession seemingly spiraling out of control. The problem is that she doesn't exactly look like a young woman who happens to have an insatiable appetite for exercise these days. She looks anorexic -- or at the very least, sickly, in some other way.
Sure, she's blamed her gluten and lactose intolerance for her increasingly thin frame. And that could very well be part of the problem. But I'm not convinced by that, either, because honey, there are plenty o' foods you can and should be eating if you're battling a "gluten and lactose allergy" as Miley says she is. And if you're seriously wasting away due to a gut issue, what you need to be doing more than running to the Pilates studio every five minutes is seeing a doctor. Here's hoping Miley figures out she probably needs more than a "double leg stretch" to be truly fit.
Do you think Miley's taken her "shape-up plan" too far?
