Popular Celebrity Diets

Hollywood manages to keep itself slim and gorgeous, and we’ve all wondered more than once what the secret of the stars actually is. Is it a God-given fast-burning metabolism, plastic surgery, or extreme fitness techniques? In truth, it may be a combination of all three, but diet definitely plays a role in keeping in shape- you are what you eat, after all! Here’s a guide to some popular recent celebrity diets:

1)     Detox Diets: With famous followers like Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyonce, and Anne Hathaway (whose controversial weight loss for her role in Les Miserables was thanks to this strict plan), the Detox Diet has been making headlines lately.  While only a temporary solution and one which isn’t recommended by medical experts, the 6-Day Detox helped Anne loss a dramatic amount of weight for her movie part.
