Celebrity diets are one of the most trusted go-to guides for people looking to trim a few pounds because they can see the effectiveness and outcome of the supposed regimes. Through tracking the evolution of their bodies at various events and by studying paparazzi photos, people are able to track the visual success of these diet and fitness plans. Once a celebrity succeeds in attaining a "dream beach body", you can bet that thousands of people will sign on for the same diet plan, hoping for similar results. The same goes for diet pills and exercise routines.
When the celebrity bikini issues begin hitting news stands, sales of gossip and celebrity pop culture magazines skyrockets. Everyone wants to learn the secrets of celebrities, from their strange eating habits (baby food) to the *gasp* cellulite they have on their thighs.
Glam.com featured five celebrity diets proven popular among the buffest starlets in Hollywood. The The Zone diet, which emphasizes eating a balance of 40% carbohydrates, 30% protiens, and 30% fat, is a favourite of Jennifer Aniston, Renee Zellwegger, and Sandra Bullock. The South Beach Diet was made famous by celebrities like Jessica Simpson who used the regime to trim down for her Daisy Duke role. The Macrobiotic Diet, consumed by Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna and Alicia Silverstone, focuses on eating mostly raw foods, with a specific avoidance of anything that has been processed or imported. The Atkins Diet, which emphasizes high protein and low carbs, is still being used by celebrities like Geri Halliwell. Sharon Stone and Tori Spelling are fans of the Sugar Busters Diet, a plan that prohibits eating processed or refined sugars, but gives fruits the green light.
What most people forget is that celebrities often have nutritionists who tailor their meals to their bodies as well as have private personal trainers who coach them through rigorous exercise routines. Also, don't forget that they get paid to look good; keeping their bodies in shape is just as crucial as you completing your daily tasks at the office.
