Cheryl Cole on a junk food diet to gain weight
Cheryl Cole has decided to go against advice given by doctors, to cut junk food from her diet, to regain the weight she lost. It’s rumoured that Cheryl’s weight has now dropped to 6 stone, which at 5’3 means her body mass index is just 14.9 - making the petite star now clinically underweight.
Twenty seven year old Cheryl contracted malaria on a trip to Tanzania last month. Doctors believe she developed the tropical disease, and is now making a slow recovery due to a depressed immune system caused by a poor diet and not enough rest.
Instead of eating a healthy balanced diet to regain weight and improve her immune system, Cheryl is rumoured to be gorging on high calorie foods like fry ups, hot dogs and burgers. Though these may help her gain weight, they are also worryingly high in artery clogging saturated fat.
Miss Cole has re-adopted the nutritional weight gain advice she was given by Ashley Cole’s football trainers early last year. They advised her to eat a diet of fattening junk food to pile on the pounds in preparation for a 10 day trek up Mount Kilimanjaro, in aid of Comic Relief last March.
Though we admire the down to earth Geordie lass for not wanting to stay a size 0, here at WeightWorld we believe there is a much healthier way of gaining weight. Instead of eating just high calorie foods, with very little nutritional content, Cheryl’s diet should contain all of the major food groups. This will provide her with all the vitamins, minerals and nutrients she needs to re-gain weight and restore her health.
To gain weight healthily she should be eating lots of foods that are high in unsaturated fat like olive oil, avocados, nuts, seeds and oily fish. These are all high in calories but lower your cholesterol, protect against heart disease, are vital for your brains development as well as healthy skin and cells. They also allow your body to absorb fat soluble vitamins from your diet, give you energy and help your body to make hormones.
Cheryl’s diet should also contain lots of healthy sources of protein, such as fish, white lean meat, tofu, dairy products, eggs, and black beans, kidney beans, pinto beans, dried peas, and soy beans. She would also do well to balance this with healthy sources of carbohydrates such as wholegrain bread, pasta and rice as well as plenty of fruit and vegetables. It’s important to remember that junk food can be enjoyed as part of a healthy diet, but should only be eaten as an occasional treat even if you are trying to gain weight.
We wish Cheryl all the best and can’t wait to see her back to her old self!
