5 Crazy Celeb Diets

Now, we’ve all heard of some crazy diets out there, but in the heat of the paparazzi and being in the public eye, celebrities will do almost anything to maintain their size “double zero” figures. Here we take a look at some. After all, summer in South Africa is only 11 weeks away…

What? The Baby Food Diet

Who? Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon

How? It’s jarred baby food you would normally feed an infant, eating it whenever you feel hungry. Firstly, yes, it’s not hurting you, and you could lose up to 10 kilos in 10 days, but you’re not getting the nutrition you need and you would be unable to perform complex brain activity, just like a tiny little baby. Other side effects include causing gallstones and loss of muscles.

What? Maple Syrup Diet

Who? Beyonce (when she needed to get skinny for DreamGirls)

How? Basically Beyonce ate nothing for 2 weeks, only drinking water with lemon juice and maple syrup. Experts believe that even though there are no major side effects, not eating for 14 days can lead to starvation, headaches, irritability and the one thing we really don’t want – gaining it all back once you eat again. So, it’s pretty pointless if you ask me.

What? The Grapefruit Diet

Who? Kylie Minogue, Brooke Shields

How? Looking to drop weight fast? Just eat grapefruit with protein for 12 days and you’re guaranteed to lose around 5 kilos. Or so the stars say. It’s low carb, low calorie and not many side effects. Score.

What? The Cabbage Soup Diet

Who? Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jaime Pressly

How? This diet requires you to eat only cabbage soup while snacking on fruits and veggies and says you can lose up to 5 kilos in a week. Problem is, the one side effect it has, is unavoidable gas. According to howstuffworks.com, “When your body is ingesting this many vegetables, plus the high intake of cabbage, you’re sure to pass some less-than-pleasant odours. The diet is low calorie and high fibre, which won’t always agree well with your stomach”… err… no thanks.

What? The Low Calorie Diet

Who? Giuliana Rancic

What? I think this could be done well when done right, but Giuliana goes a bit far by not eating for 3 hours after she wakes up, but works out and punishes herself for having any sort of carbs. Basically, you should keep a diary of the calories you consume in a day and make sure you don’t go over a certain limit. On average a woman should consume only 1200 calories per day and a man 1800. It’s pretty simple really, but it’s not a fast weight loss, but once it’s off, it stays off.

So there you have it. Five crazy celeb diets. Now, don’t try any of these diets till you’ve gone to your GP first and none of these work if not teamed with 2 litres of water and exercise per day.

  1. love this post babe… all have pros and cons. low calorie diet is the one that makes most sense. i dont eat when i wake up either. i only eat when hungry really. sometimes i’ll first eat at noon. and working out on an empty stomach is actually the best way to work out. i have to start now for summer.. working out.. and rereading my GABRIEL METHOD BOOK again. The gabriel method is what made me loose 15kg, keep it off and become a healthier me.
