Everyone is interested in Kate Middleton’s diet(s), especially now that she is pregnant with her second child
by Jonell Galloway
Everyone is interested in Kate Middleton’s diet, but is there really anything we can rightly called The Kate Middleton Diet?
There is more conjecture than anything, and it makes for lots of print in the British tabloids.
Most tabloids claim that Kate Middleton, now Duchess of Cambridge, followed the Dukan Diet to lose weight for her wedding. Pierre Dukan, founder of the protein-based, low-carb diet, told the New York Daily News that Middleton lost far too much weight before her wedding, but stated that it is still safe for her to continue it during her second pregnancy, despite her severe case of hyperemesis gravidarum, characterized by severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and electrolyte disturbance during pregnancy.
But word has it that this is just one of the diets Kate has done. Apparently, another diet secret which she followed it during her first pregnancy, and now follows two days a week, is an all-juice diet.
To lose weight after her first pregnancy, The Daily Mail reported that Kate went on a raw diet, munching on only ceviche, goji berries, gazpacho, watermelon salad, almond milk and tabbouleh.
The Dukan Diet is a classic diet French women use to control their weight. The French site Baby Book agrees with Dr. Dukan that it is safe to continue the diet during pregnancy, and that the days of women eating for two are behind us. Of course, Dukan was banned from practicing medicine in his native France in 2013. Both his U.K. and American sites have been removed. The French domain name, dukandiet.fr, is reportedly for sale.
In Touch Weekly alleges that Middleton is anorexic.
Since graduating from college, the Duchess of Cambridge is said to have gone from a size 10 or 12 to a size 6.
Controversy surround Kate’s seemingly favorite diet or weight control secrets and will undoubtedly continue to be followed closely both by the press and readers for years to come.
