Honey Boo Boo needs to go on a diet. At least that’s what The Doctors told her mom, June Shannon, during a recent visit. According to Mail Online, Mama June was told that her daughter, 9-year-old Alana Thompson, is seriously overweight, and that she should be eating healthier. The Doctors made some interesting observations when he checked out June’s fridge.
“What’s ironic and something I’ve learned in the emergency department is the common culprit in a lot of these things, believe it or not, is what you’re eating. And when I looked in your fridge, June, I’m sorry but I didn’t see anything in that fridge that’s either going to improve Alana’s weight or decrease inflammation in her body,” said Dr. Stork.
A Honey Boo Boo diet that would satisfy her unhealthy cravings could include things like fruit smoothies, baked chicken, and cauliflower-crusted pizza. This would be instead of milk shakes, fried chicken, cheese pizza, and tons of sugary items that are just plain bad for you. Of course, it’s not just Alana who is overweight, but with Mama June not cooking a healthy meal (like ever), the family’s terrible eating habits and obesity issues clearly stem right from home.
According to Softpedia News, Dr. Travis Stork and Dr. Jennifer Ashton have put Honey Boo Boo on this new diet and exercise plan, and will monitor her success over the next few weeks. Production staff of The Doctors supposedly splurged, and bought the former reality star a new bicycle (that’s the exercise part).
Honey Boo Boo didn’t have a great diet, as evidenced on Toddlers and Tiaras and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Mama June and her family pretty much became famous for being heavy and lazy, and a lot of people loved them for it. However, it’s clear that it’s not healthy. Although the family no longer has a reality show on TLC (thanks to June’s decision to openly date a registered sex offender), they have been trying to stay as relevant as possible, which could be why they jumped at the opportunity to have an “intervention” on The Doctors.
Rumor has it, the family has been trying to revamp their reality show, and will pretty much do anything they can to get back on television. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, TLC isn’t too happy with this, and have threatened to take the family to court if they continue to look for a new spot on TV.
Information about Honey Boo Boo’s diet, and Mama June’s interview, will air on Wednesday’s episode of The Doctors. Will you tune in?
