Flanked by her minders, Katie Holmes was spotted arriving at the Digital Domain Studios in Marina del Rey, CA on Wednesday (August 24).
What could the 32-year-old actress be up to? Well, Digital Domain is a visual effects and animation company founded by film director James Cameron, Stan Winston and Scott Ross. The company is known for creating state-of-the-art digital imagery for feature films, television advertising, interactive visual media and the video game industry.
Meanwhile, the new issue of OK! mag delves into a hot topic that always seems to surround Katie — her weight.
“She was so gaunt,” a so-called pal tells the tabloid of Katie’s appearance during the spring. “Friends said, ‘Katie, you look so much older; you need to put flesh on your bones.’”
Katie has gone to great lengths to be thin, like eating a raw-foods diet. “When she wants to slim down for a role, she eats only unprocessed raw vegetables,” says the source. “Because of the sugar content, she tries not to eat fruit; if she does, she usually sticks to berries, because they have the lowest glycemic index.”
So, what does Katie eat on a typical raw-foods day? “She’ll have carrot soup and a yam for lunch and broccoli for dinner, and she’ll keep a handful of raw almonds for a snack,” says the source, who adds that the diet is extreme. “She doesn’t sustain it for long.”
“After shooting, Tom will take her out so she can pig out and get some much-needed protein,” says an insider. It’s another favourite of Katie’s. “She does a lot of low- carb, high-protein. She and Tom love meat. They have steak houses, like Mastro’s and Cut, in Beverly Hills that they hit regularly. Katie starts with an iceberg wedge and then gets a lean cut of steak.” Another insider says Katie also eats “mostly organic food, avoiding anything processed. White flour and sugar are out, unless she’s treating Suri.”
And what she’s doing is working. “Katie appears to be around 130 pounds,” celeb nutritionist Oz Garcia, Ph.D., who doesn’t work with Katie, tells OK!. “She’s in a healthy BMI.”Ultimately, it’s about balance. “She is a pretty level-headed Midwestern girl,” her pal says. “In the end, it makes sense that she chooses health.”
