 Low Calorie Diet, Weight Loss Claimed Bride-To-Be's Life Before Wedding

A Brit bride-to-be is said to have died after she went on a 500 calories-a-day diet plan, in a bid to lose weight before her wedding.

It was revealed at an inquest that Samantha Clowe, 34, was "fit and well" when she started the diet, but passed away 11 weeks later, after losing three stone from her original 17st 6lb.

Clowe, a metal researcher, had got her GP's approval before she started the LighterLife diet of special soup, bars and shakes.

Her fiance Andrew Smith found her collapsed at the home they shared in Leeds.

"She said she wanted respect at work and didn't want to be a fat bride," the Daily Star quoted her mother Barbara as saying at the inquest.

Pathologist Dr Alfredo Walker said a post-mortem failed to establish a cause of death.

"It may be related to her low calorie diet and weight loss," he said.

Coroner David Hinchliff, who recorded a narrative verdict, said Clowe probably died from cardiac arrhythmia, when the heart stops.

"LighterLife is a clinically monitored programme and has helped 150,000 people lose weight," a LighterLife spokesman said.

"When she died she was still clinically obese," he added.
