Don't Let Stress Overcome You: Reese Witherspoon

Don't Let Stress Overcome You: Reese Witherspoon

Reese was looking dazzling at The Oscars in her gown, but many were speculating if she was a bit too thin. In this week of NEDAW, we need to be careful of who we're pointing fingers at...

In the Feb. 19th 2007 issue, Us Weekly reported that after pulling herself together post split with Ryan Philippe, Reese has since fine tuned her diet and workouts.

On her diet: The mom of two “didn’t eat a lot the first few weeks” after the stressful split, says a friend, but she typically eats a high-fiber muffin at breakfast, chicken salad for lunch and salmon and vegetables for dinner.

On her workout: “Reese used working out to help with postsplit anxiety,” says the pal. Witherspoon starts every day with a three-mile run and often hits classes at YogaHop in Santa Monica, California, as well as Burn 60 in L.A.’s Brentwood area. “She’s so dedicated that even when she does yoga or a class, she runs afterward!” “Running is her therapy and a big part of her life,” says a source close to Witherspoon.

So, give the girl a break already, she has gone through a very traumatic (and very public) split. There is a difference between having an eating disorder and having a rough patch. Anyone in her situation can experience (and probably does) an odd change in your relationship with food and exercise. I am just glad that Reese looks so happy and has gotten a handle on it.

I think she's gorgeous. Going through a divorce and eating less are not anorexia and doesn't mean she has a problem. Sometimes the media really infuriates me.

Lucky she's lost and not gained!

It sounds like she's eating healthily. She might need a few more calories since she's working out everyday, but at least she's actually eating - and real food.
