Zooey Deschanel‘s diet is difficult and annoying. Why? Because Zooey Deschanel’s diet makes top chefs in the country cringe and struggle, and makes me want to send her 50 pounds of grass-fed beef. So, what is wrong with Zooey Deschanel’s diet?
First of all, she is one of my favorite actresses, so what I am about to say is not easy for me to say, but her eating habits are pretty pathetic. In short, she is a vegan. Do I need to say more? She admitted herself that most of the time she eats raw vegetables. Oh, and she is soy and wheat intolerant to boot, which makes Zooey Deschanel’s diet pretty much impossible to follow or like even a tiny bit.
Of course, it is awesome that she eats a lot of vegetables and presumably fruits, but if you only eat raw vegetables, you are limiting your selection and you are unlikely to get a full range of nutrients that your body needs to function properly, which is why most vegans I have seen look as if they were seating in a deep cave without sunlight for at least months. Deschanel is an exception; she does not look that way at all, which makes me wonder if she sneaks into her diet the Quarter Pounder with cheese every now and then.
Zooey Deschanel’s diet was revealed on a recent episode of Bravo’s Top Chef (a must see reality TV cooking show, if you are an armchair “Iron Chef” and a foodie, which I am, big time). Most chefs were shocked and pretty much disgusted by her unrealistic eating habits. One chef actually called them “off-putting,” but he managed to come up with a decent dish. My favorite chef, Hubert Keller also did pretty great, but he is well familiar with vegetarian dishes.
The bottom line on Zooey Deschanel’s diet I do not get it, why do people like Deschanel engage in what can only be described as nutritional masochism? Is she trying to save chickens or something or does she actually believe that vegans live longer and healthier lives? The latter is an utter fallacy, of course, but the former is hardly a better reason. In any case, Zooey Deschanel’s diet needs to change. I do not want to see her looking like Gollum in a few years.
