After enduring a rollercoaster of weight gain and loss in the public eye, Jessica Simpson is no stranger to scrutiny of her looks. And with her 30th birthday just weeks away, it looks like she’s gearing up for the big day by overhauling her get-fit approach. “If anyone wants to get in bikini shape before they turn 30 follow @madfit or train with him!,” she Tweeted on June 10 of working with Hollywood trainer Mike Alexander. “He is kicking my butt! Love it! MIKEY!” In the days that followed, she also began Tweeting about dalliances with healthier foods, including the vitamin-rich leafy green Swiss chard–and admitted to trying “yummy” tofu for the very first time, though, she added, “You know your from TX when you have to dip it in ketchup. Ha.” Now, it seems, the star, who recently starred in her own reality show dedicated to investigating ideals of beauty around the world The Price of Beauty has gone meat-and-dairy-free–at least for the moment–in a quest for improved health: “Shocked my system with a vegan diet, special Pu-erh tea from China” she posted Sunday night. If this all seems too extreme for Simpson, even she questioned her choices, Tweeting “Who am I right now? This might be too clean!” What do you think of Jessica taking to Twitter to share her new fitness experimentation? –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

This would actually be one thing I could give her some respect about. When she wore a t-shirt several years ago that was printed with the dumb slogan ‘Real Girls Eat Meat’ as a dig at Tony’s ex Carrie Underwood – that was just pathetic. So she felt that Carrie wasn’t a ‘real girl’ since she doesn’t support the horrific cruelty in factory farms? Way to take a stand then. Hope she gets educated while trying this healthy & compassionate eating lifestyle out.

Remember when Jessica Simpson dogged on Carrie Underwood for being a vegan? Now Jessica’s a vegan? Sounds like she wants her name in the headlines like always, and she’s desperate to lose some pounds. Can she do anything without announcing it to the world?

Jessica, just stop stuffing yourself full of food!!!! And stop twittering unless you have something worthwhile to say. Lose weight with some dignity.

Jessica Simpson is beautiful and anyone who calls a size 4 fat is an absolute idiot!! There is no basis for critiquing a person’s decision to eat healthier, get a clue.

She messed up her metabolism when she starved herself to play Daisy Duke. She’ll always be chunky now.

Veganism is a lifestyle, not a crash diet to fit your fat ass into your old daisy dukes.
