(PacificCoastNews) Rita Ora checked herself into fat camp, despite not being fat
Can someone explain to us why singer Rita Ora—svelte singer Rita Ora—checked herself into Viva Mayr?
For those of you who may not be as obsessed with the fat camp industry as I am, Viva Mayr is one of the most grueling weight loss clinics in the world. Located in Austria, the clinic takes a strict and puritan approach to weight loss and health. Clients drink liters of diluted Epsom salt water upon arrival, subsist on small high-fiber meals (that they have to chew 30 to 40 times each bite), receive regular therapeutic spa treatments, and participate in a lot of exercise. (Truth is, I've always wanted to go there—ever since I read how India Knight went there years ago, hung out with sheikhs, and lost a ton of weight in a week.)
So why did Ora—who, by any standard, definitely does not need to shed any poundage—spend time at Viva Mayr?
"Rita wants to get in perfect shape for the summer and her forthcoming promo appearances," a source told the Mirror. "This was a last-ditch, and extreme measure. Following a detailed examination and fitness test, she was given a rigid diet-and-exercise regime, with a few deep-tissue massages thrown in for good measure. The food is mainly boiled potatoes and broths, and guests are taught to savor their food by chewing it a minimum of 30 times per mouthful. The program set for Rita was designed to be a blueprint for the rest of her life, helping her keep on the straight and narrow."
