Her engagement at just 19 is surprising, but we’ve been equally fascinated by Miley’s continuing dwindling frame… not in a good way.
Constantly photographed hitting the gym, the actress and singer has swapped her party antics for an exercise obsession.
But with new photos emerging of an even slighter figure, we consulted The Nutrition Twins to get their take as to whether she has gone too far.
Here’s what they say….
Has Miley Cyrus become too thin? Reports say that she has evolved into somewhat of a fitness fanatic as of late and this is no surprise when you see her new slim physique. At 5’5”, the star has lost an estimated 15lbs. Hollywood seems to be hemming and hawing over her new look. As registered dietitians, we love that she is working out and getting fit! We all should do that! The part that concerns us is the rate at which she seems to have lost the weight (it seems like it happened overnight!) and the message this sends to young girls.
If Miley lost this weight over the course of ten weeks, it would have been a safe and healthy weight loss. To lose 15 pounds, she would need to eat approximately 750 fewer calories a day for 10 weeks. There are little adjustments she could make to her eating plan to do this. For example, she could choose non-fat dairy products instead of regular ones and save approximately 80-150 calories per serving. It would also benefit this goal if she swapped out a dessert like a bowl of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for a fudgesicle or a frozen juice popsicle or for berries drizzles with powdered sugar. This swap alone could save 400-500 calories. Leave butter or oil off bread or veggies and there you can save another 100-300 calories depending if you use 1 or 3 tablespoons.
