Peaches Geldof, beloved fashion journalist, mother of two, wife, and London socialite, died yesterday at just 25 years old. Numerous media outlets are speculating about whether her drastic diet could have contributed to her untimely death.
1. Geldof Has Been Open About Her Juice Diet in the Past
There are also reports that she sometimes dieted by eating just miso soup and fruit.
2. Geldof Juiced For Long Periods of Time
Most juice fasts last for 3-7 days, but Geldof did them for longer. She told OK!: “I do juicing. You juice vegetables and then you drink it three times a day. It’s gross. I do it usually for about a month.”
After this interview came out in 2011, a spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association went on record to say that “surviving on fruit is a very dangerous diet…rapid dieting like this not only makes you lose muscle strength, but wastes away your internal organs.”
