"Its top priority is survival, after a couple of weeks you won't be as active, you'll find that you get brain fog and become irritable, it kicks in quite quickly."
Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield then asked how he would have advised the pop star on ways to shed weight.
"Slow and steady wins the race, definitely – find something that you can stick to,” he explained.
Dr Zoe, who is also an expert on the show, added: "1000-calories a day isn't sustainable and you set yourself up to fail.
"Make small changes you can stick to for the rest of your life."
