The Bleak Diet
Mariah Carey, This chart-topping singer may have an arsenal of vibrant pop hits to her name, but her diet is rumored to be intentionally bland.

The Apple Cider Vinegar Diet

The Baby Food Diet

According to reports, this Friends star feasted on 14 servings of baby food a day when preparing for a movie she made with Adam Sandler. jennifer aniston and yogalosophy,
The Cabbage Soup Diet
sarah Michelle Gellar, Long before vampires were cool, this actress was kicking their butts as a super buff vampire slayer. Sure, karate and kickboxing were part of the leading lady’s regimen, but in more recent years she’s rumored to have tried the cabbage soup diet, which involved eating unlimited cabbage soup plus low-calorie fruits and veggies. cabbage soup diet, sarah michelle gellar pregnancy,
The Grapefruit Diet
Brooke Shields, Around since the 1930s, this diet involves eating half a grapefruit before every meal and hinges on the idea that grapefruits contain an enzyme that boosts fat burning. According to a number of reports, this former Calvin Klein model was one of the fad diet’s many celebrity fans. grapefruit enzyme naringin, Brooke Shields to host Drama Desk Awards,
The Drunk Diet
Lady Gaga, We shouldn’t be surprised by any of this eccentric pop star’s antics by now — but we were stunned to read about the so-called drunk diet, pioneered by her ex-boyfriend, who even wrote a book about it. The singer says she drinks whiskey while she works, but then commits to exercising — even when battling a hangover. Here’s to hoping this diet is more of a publicity stunt than a lifestyle.
The Seven-Day Color Diet
Christina Aguilera, Adding color to your diet can help ensure that you’re getting a variety of nutrients. This weight-loss plan takes that idea to the next level.Each day the dieter eats a different color; so, she’ll eat white foods on Monday, red foods on Tuesday and so forth. The offbeat regimen has supposedly attracted this big-voiced pop star and reality show judge. Metabolism-Boosting Weight Loss Plans,
The Master Cleanse
Beyonce, This sultry singer-turned-actress invented the word “Bootylicious” with her smoking bod. After being cast in the motion picture Dreamgirls, the songstress turned to a liquid lemon juice mixture to quickly slim down for her role. The diet requires six or more servings of the juice a day as well as a saltwater flush and herbal laxative.We hope her then-boyfriend wasn’t around to see — or hear — what was coming out the other end.
The Macrobiotic Diet
Gwyneth Paltrow, We’re beginning to lose track of all the weird ways this actress stays slim. She has been known to follow a macrobiotic diet, a strict, mostly vegetarian plan. Then there’s her GOOP cleanse, a 21-day detox plan that allows only one meal a day. Even prisoners are given more food than that! The weirdest part of all of this is the way she chews her food, reportedly chomping each bite 13 times. gwyneth paltrow and Hugo Boss fragrance,
The Victoria’s Secret Diet
Adriana Lima, This is one of the scariest weight-loss plans out there. The dieter consumes only protein shakes mixed with powdered egg, washed down with a gallon of water, while continuing to exercise once or twice a day. And that’s just the beginning. Right before runway time, she’ll stop taking in liquids altogether! Emaciation may be a popular runway look, but in real life it’s just plain dangerous. adriana lima pregnant with second child,
The Cookie Diet
Snooki, We love guilty pressures, so naturally we were intrigued by The Cookie Diet. But don’t let the title fool you. On this plan, dieters eat up to nine 60-calorie cookies a day, breaking for the hunger-suppressing treat every two hours. Talk about a cookie coma! One reality star used it to drop pounds she had put on with her binge-drinking lifestyle. Hint: Her name rhymes with cookie.
The Grapefruit Oil Diet
Jennifer Lopez, Don’t confuse this weight-loss strategy with the Grapefruit Diet—actually eating the fruit is too passé for this fly girl. We hear she prefers to carry a vial of the oil extract in hopes that the aroma will kick liver enzymes into high gear and promote weight loss. Sounds ridiculous, right? jennifer lopez American idol,
The Fish Facelift
Kim Cattrall, Possibly one of the only Hollywood diets not to focus on weight loss, benefits of omega 3 lowers triglycerides in blood and reduce plaque in arteries, the Fish Facelift, or Perricone Diet, calls for hefty amounts of salmon to reap the anti-aging benefits of omega-3s. We’ve seen worse diets, but eating salmon at every meal gets old quickly. This Sex and the City star is rumored to follow the plan. benefits of omega 3 lowers triglycerides in blood and reduce plaque in arteries, kim cattrall Drama League nomination,
The Bacteria Diet
Madonna, We hear this material girl prefers her food fermented. More of a science than an actual plan, her chef has created a diet that’s high in fiber and laced with “good bacteria.” The theory is that the bacteria will ward off cancer and help with food digestion by promoting the growth of microbes in her poop. Yes, her poop. We hope we never again have to read about this star’s colon or bowels. Fiber: Your Diet's Secret Weapon, madonna nude photograph sells for $23,000,
January Jones , When we heard about this starlet’s diet, we thought she went mad! Following the birth of her son, she had her own placenta dried, crushed and put into capsules — and she ingested them in an attempt to shed her baby weight. january jones with baby,
