Jackie ‘O’ Henderson, 44, reveals extreme new diet of bone broth

She lost an impressive 10kg last year after following a controversial diet.

And Jackie ‘O’ Henderson, 44, has revealed she’s going to extreme measures yet again to stay in shape.

Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Monday, the mother-of-one explained she has started eating bone broth.

‘I’m starting a bone broth diet, I’ve heard it’s really good for you,’ she said.

‘It just tasted like boiling water so I’ve just added more bone broth to it. It tastes like dirty, two-minute noodle water that you would chuck out… It’s not as tasty as I was hoping.’

After her co-host Kyle Sandilands mocked the extreme diet, Jackie joked that she was going to give it up after just an hour.

‘I don’t think I’m going to stick to this diet!’ she said.

Health fad: Bone broth is made by boiling bones of healthy animals in water with spices and vegetables. There are many benefits, including vitamins, minerals and age-defying collagen

It comes several months after Jackie was criticised for promoting ‘unhealthy’ eating habits, following her 10kg weight loss last year. 

At the time, she claimed her daily diet consisted of skipping breakfast, a single avocado for lunch and a healthy, low-calorie dinner.

Her on-air admission prompted eating disorder charity The Butterfly Foundation to compare her eating habits to ‘starvation’.  

‘If I’d known it was going to blow up like that, then I would have clarified more,’ she told The Daily Telegraph in response to the criticism.

‘I hated the idea that people thought I was promoting the fact that people should be starving themselves to lose weight.’

Jackie also expressed concern that her daughter, eight-year-old Kitty Henderson, would be impacted by ‘weight loss culture’.

‘I have a daughter and that kind of message concerns me and I would never want to see her do something like that,’ she explained.

Following the backlash, Jackie told her KIIS FM listeners: ‘It is not a starvation diet.

‘What I should have clarified is that while I’m doing that [strict diet] on some days, I don’t eat that every single day.’  

Hitting back: Last year, Jackie claimed her day-on-a-plate consisted of skipping breakfast, a single avocado for lunch and a healthy, low-calorie dinner. She was later criticised by eating disorder charity The Butterfly Foundation for encouraging a 'starvation diet'

She continued: ‘If we want pizza, I’ll have pizza. If we, you know, want to go out for phở, I’ll eat that… If I wake up and I’m hungry, I have toast.

‘I don’t stick to that [day on a plate] religiously. But, do you know what? When I do eat an avocado for lunch, I feel good! It makes me feel good.

‘I do believe that on the days when I eat less, I feel better about myself, and I feel healthier. I actually feel sluggish when I eat [heavier foods].’ 

Setting the record straight, she added: ‘I’m not starving myself by any means. And I would never ever endorse that. I don’t want anyone out there starving themselves to lose weight. It’s not about starving yourself.’  

Responsible dieting: Following the backlash, Jackie told her KIIS FM listeners: 'It is not a starvation diet. What I should have clarified is that while I'm doing that [strict diet] on some days, I don't eat that every single day'
