Mischa Barton is trying to sell you weird diet pills now

Maybe we should put it down to the fact that her house is in foreclosure, but Mischa Barton is on some crazy shit, serving as the spokeswoman for some brand of diet pills called Proactol XS. They’re mushroom based and claim they can take the fat out of your food or some other bullshit and I just can’t with any of it.

From The Daily Mail:

Mischa, 28, has been taking a mushroom based supplement to manage her weight – and claims she’s lost 4lbs in a week.

‘As someone who naturally struggles with their weight, I wanted to find a supplement which worked in harmony with my body,’ she said.

‘I use Proactol XS as it has no side effects, is sourced naturally and lets me manage my weight safely. So far I’ve lost around 4lbs a week by taking the supplement.’

The tablets contain chitosan, a nondigestible dietary fibre made from the shells of crustaceans and sourced from mushrooms, which promises to neutralise calories from high fat content foods.

The chitosan forms a gel-like substance in the stomach, which mixes with the food and removes the fats and cholesterol from it, which is then passed through the body naturally.

Oh girl, no. Is she or anyone else really dumb enough to think this is for real? Here’s a diet tip for you: cut out all the white bread, pasta and sugar and you can not only lose 4 lbs in a week, you can do it while still eating food – food that’s delicious and good for you. It’s a sad state of affairs that it’s come to this, and hilarious that Mischa Barton of all people was chosen as the face of the brand. Doesn’t exactly make you wanna rush out and buy them, does it?

Mischa apparently has 17 projects in development and 7 in production, so I’m not sure why money is QUITE that tight…

  • 1. Why the hell would I buy diet pills from a fat person?

    2. Diet pills themselves are complete bullshit.

    3. The description of what they’re supposed to do is so sickening that I wouldn’t take them regardless if they worked…which they won’t.

    God, just eat things that don’t have an advertisement associated with them and save wine for the weekends. That’s your answer.

    • Yup I agree with blah! Losing weight is 90% diet and 10% exercise! So eat right during the week, have a cheat day during the weekend and get your fat ass to the gym!!

      That diet pill sounds so gross! It gels in your stomach! Sounds like the makings of a bad stomach ache to me!!

  • I haven’t seen her in years. She was so skinny last time I saw her photos. So, now she’s kind of chunky and is hawking diet pills? Really? What the hell?
