Weird celebrity diets

We all envy the perfect bodies we see in the movies and music videos, not to mention fashion shows. However, as the celebrities are only humans, they too pack on a few extra pounds sometimes and then they tend to go to extremes to get back in shape. Check out some of the craziest diet plans the stars recommend.









Madonna is one of few celebrity figures promoting the Air Diet. The concept of it is to prepare the food, put it on your plate, place it on your fork and hold it up to your mouth. However, you will need to stop there as you cannot actually take a bite. Simply put, you do not eat – you pretend to do it. This is based on the idea that air alone can keep our bodies active.

Gwyneth Paltrow








Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the most outspoken celebrities when it comes to diet and health. She used to stick to a macrobiotic diet, eating only 100 percent natural foods that haven’t been processed at all. She wouldn’t eat meat, eggs, fish, or dairy, surviving solely on fruit, veg, whole grains, cereals, seeds and algae. Then there’s her GOOP cleanse, a 21-day detox plan that allows only one meal a day.

Jennifer Aniston








The Friends actress chooses to skip breakfast in order to maintain her figure, substituting it with lemon juice. She believes that this encourages detox and helps burn fat quicker.

Kat Graham








Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham has got a killer figure and she has a unique way of keeping fit. Instead of salads and juices cleanses, Kat sucks on Sukitz lollipops, a line of sugar-free candy that contains African mango extract to suppress hunger.

Megan Fox








In order to cleanse out her system, the Transformers star drinks apple cider vinegar before every meal. Megan Fox argues that as she does not enjoy exercise or dieting, this helps her rid her body of sugars and water weight.

Nicole Kidman








She went on the hard-boiled egg diet while filming Cold Mountain, which sounds like the most boring meal plan of all. This diet plan consists of one egg in the morning for breakfast and two eggs for dinner. This type of diet is not advisable in the long run as it is unbalanced, unhealthy and does not provide you with enough calories. In the end Nicole ended up losing more weight than she originally desired.

Reese Witherspoon








Reese Witherspoon famously credits her perfect body to what is known as the baby food diet. It involves replacing breakfast and lunch with jars of baby food and eating one proper meal for dinner. Reese combined it with yoga and running in order to remain fit and healthy.

Katie Holmes








Katie’s secret to a healthy-looking body and quick weight loss for movies is raw, organic vegetable diets. When the actress needs a quick weight loss plan, she will usually only have carrot soup and yam for lunch and broccoli for dinner. She avoids all fruits due to their high sugar content, except for the occasional berries. When she feels hungry, Katie will snack on almonds.

Jennifer Lopez








J.Lo is actually convinced that the smell of the grapefruit oil can help break down fats, so she always carries a vial of this ‘magical’ oil with her.

Sarah Michelle Gellar








The “cabbage soup diet” is the weight-loss method of choice for this star. It involves eating nothing but cabbage soup (and a couple other fruits and veggies) for seven days.

January Jones

According to January Jones, placenta contains high levels of a hormone which helps shrinks your uterus back to its regular size after giving birth. Once her son Xander was born in September 2011, the Mad Men star turned her own placenta into capsules which she swallowed each day.

Laura Prepon








Former That ‘70s Show star Laura Prepon is another celebrity who has turned pregnancy hormones into a weight loss plan. “I did the hCG Diet,” she told Health Magazine. “You’re injected with a hormone that’s extracted from the urine of pregnant women!” According to promoters of the plan, followers can burn excess fat, without exercise, as long as they consume only 500 calories a day.

    Wow! This is indeed weird. In case of Madonna I wouldn’t eat at all, rather then teasing myself with the cooked food on the plate in front of me and stop the fork close to my mouth. The apple cider vinegar is evil or the stomach and can provoke many diseases, so I won’t be surprised Megan Fox has some. All these diets are very bad for a prolonged time since they are not balanced. The most weird diet I found from this article is that of January Jones. Yuck! This is nuts!

    All these diets are indeed weird. Some of them are even disgusting and definitely most of tehm are not healthy. Well, everyone choose the way to shed kilos for themselves. Still it better be healthy as upcoming problems could be dangerous! Good luck in looking great and staying fit at the expense of your health!
