Kirstie Alley has been shedding the weight while being on Dancing With The Stars, but is she so desperate to lose even more weight she's starving herself as well?
According to the National Enquirer - and we know how valid they can be - Kirstie has been starving herself and working out to the point of exhaustion.
“Kirstie is burning the candle at both ends and came close to blacking out during rehearsals,” an insider told the National Enquirer.
“She frequently eats one small meal before going in for seven hour dance practices and she’s getting by on as little as four hours of sleep a night.”
Sports medicine expert Dr.Gabe Mirkin weighed in on the situation, and estimated that Kirstie averages a 1,400-a-day calorie intake, is burning up to 2,800 calories a day by intensive dancing and risks serious health problems with a starvation diet.
“If Kirstie continues,she may suffer from electrolyte deficiency,particularly sodium depletion,which can lead to heart arrhythmia and sudden death,” he added.
“The fact that she’s falling demonstrates that she’s doing serious damage to her body.”
