Leann Rimes was looking super-slim when she stepped out with fiancé, Eddie Cibrian in Calabasas, California on March 11 ... some would say too slim. A pair of denim cut-offs and a loose-fitting tee revealed a skin-and-bones figure for the singer, a far cry from her formerly-fit physique.
RadarOnline talked to nutrition expert Dr. Farid Zarif to get a professional's take on LeAnn's seemingly-dramatic weight loss. After looking at the country crooner's March photo next to snap of her on the beach less than three months ago, Zarif said that "pre-wedding stress" was most likely the cause of LeAnn's shed-pounds.

"There is definitely an apparent difference in her appearance and stress could be a factor with her wedding coming-up," the doc said. "A lot of women try to lose weight to look good in their wedding dress and somebody like LeAnn Rimes is under 'invisible pressure' to look a certain way for her fans also."
Does LeAnn really feel the need to get skinny for Eddie, and even for her fans? The star took to her Twitter account to respond to the all the critics, answering that question with a resounding N-O. Eddie Cibrian's Ex Lashes Out Against LeAnn Rimes
"I am completely healthy!" she tweeted to reassure her followers. "If people only saw how much I ate." Then she added: "I don't care about the dumb articles. Maybe those people should start taking care of themselves… inside and out." A bit defensive, maybe?
Although LeAnn and Eddie have not set a date for their nuptials, she is reportedly still in full planning-mode. As every bride knows, stress naturally goes along with that whole process, but we just hope she takes some time out from her hectic schedule to keep herself healthy.
