Celebrities are damned if they do and damned if they don’t and Charlotte Crosby seems to be the latest who was chastised firstly for being overweight and now for losing too much weight but has she gone too far?
A new photograph of Charlotte Crosby on Instagram has left fans concerned about her weight with some claiming that she has lost too much.
So far Charlotte Crosby has lost 2st 7lbs and has dropped from a curvy size 12 down to a size 8 in only six months.
The reality television star post a selfie of herself before a night out and the tight fitting white dress highlighted just how much weight Charlotte has lost.
She captioned the picture with: “This dress tho,”.
There was an outpouring from fans after the picture went up online. One said: “I think she has lost too much weight,” while another added: “I love Charlotte but I don’t like her new look anymore:( she’s way too skinny”.
Charlotte’s latest post comes after top nutrition Therapist Yvonne Bishop-Weston told Mirror Celeb she thinks the Geordie Shore cast may be taking their weight loss a little too far.
“It is risky losing so much weight too quickly as their bodies are likely to recalibrate their metabolism to compensate for the lack of calories,” she told Mirror Celeb.
“It’s vitally important on these ridiculously low calorie celebrity diets that one makes every calorie count towards the body’s nutritional needs. There should be no room made in these diets for foods with added processed sugar or fatty foods like burgers and cheese or sweets or else the body will soon become too low in essential fats, iron, B vitamins, zinc, magnesium, anti oxidants and sources of fibre.
“If they lose any more weight, unless they are very careful and seek the advice of an experienced registered nutritionist, they will be in danger of risking problems with fertility, cognitive function, digestion and the quality of their skin.”
Nutrition expert Spencer Austin added: “It’s perfectly safe to loose 3-5 lbs per week with correct nutrition and some good training.
“The trouble comes from maintaining this intensity, 1-3 months then most people break! As a lot of people head down the reduced calorie, exercise like crazy route. This will give you some quick results but is not sustainable.
“Over time your metabolism will slow down putting your body into starvation mode. Your body doesn’t realise that you might have a kitchen full of food or that you might want to fit into that LBD in time for your friends 21st birthday party.
“All it knows is that food is scarce and it should start storing what comes in as fat! This can also lead to other problems with Thyroid, cortisol etc.
“The other trouble with the cutting calories exercising too much is that there are more chances of finding yourself hungry at the wrong moments like when you’re walking past the cheese cake factory.
“This can lead to binge eating. Like the tortoise and hare, slow and steady can win the race.”
