How Celebrities Lose Weight? 10 Diet Tricks From Celebrities

Sometimes we just need that added bit of extra motivation when it comes to dieting. After all, dieting is not exactly easy. When I first went on a diet, I lasted 2 days and 3 hours. Yep, that’s right. I caved after a particularly emotional episode of Fringe and had to raid the snacks cupboard. I didn’t start dieting for another six months.

A great way to get motivated to stick to a diet is to take a look at our favourite celebrities who have managed to shed a few pounds in just a matter of months. If they can do it, why can’t we? Modelling yourself on someone else is actually a fantastic way to improve your life and get the results you want. So if your favourite celebrity has gone from chubby at the waist to fabulously shaped and toned all over, all you need to do now is to follow their regimen to the letter. So let’s take a look at 10 diet tricks from celebrities.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow has always been stick-thin, but there has to be a reason for it. Indeed, she’s one of the few female celebrities that have somehow managed to keep the weight off forever. She’s essentially the Queen of Health And Fitness, loved and adored by many. But what’s her secret?

Gwyneth is tireless when it comes to keeping fit and healthy. She literally never stops. Whether she’s promoting her healthy eating or various fitness regimes, she’s always doing something to stay nice and trim. She’s 100% dedicated to the cause.

Her latest diet tip? Exercise!

Unfortunately, her idea of exercise is not to walk to the grocery store each day. Nope, instead she wants you to workout intensively for two hours each day.

Kristin Bauer Van Straten

Start of True Blood Kristin Bauer Van Straten went on an unusual diet trick recently. As she explains: “My nutritionist was trying out this thing where we were wrapped in Ace bandages soaked in some sort of detox to make you thinner thing. And then we were put in ponchos. But we had to keep moving, so we walked in a circle while this boom box was playing.”

Kristin’s diet certainly sounds very out-there, but, hey, if you don’t fancy it just ask your “nutritionist” (best friend) to recommend you a different one.

Boy George

You might remember Boy George from eighties pop band The Culture Club. Their most famous hit was Karma Chameleon, a song that is still played on radios all around the world today.

Boy George looked fabulous back in the eighties; he was in handsome and in shape. Now in his fifties, he’s undoubtedly as vulnerable to middle-age spread as everyone else. So what’s stopped him from piling on the pounds?!

Boy George’s diet tip is actually rather unusual: He suggests going to your doctor for a blood test to find out what diet is right for you. “Every single plan is unique.”

Whether you follow Boy’s advice or not probably comes down to whether you’re prepared to have a needle stuck in your arm as part of your diet routine. Hmm.

Britney Spears

It might be close to 20 years since Britney first beseeched us to hit her one more time, but she’s still as incredibly gorgeous as ever. Why? Because she just loves to stay in shape.

Britney is actually like the rest of us when it comes to dieting; she hates it. In fact, she hates it so much that she still gets her fix of “spaghetti, brownies and chocolate chip cookies.”

So how does she manage to stay so beautiful?

Yoga and cardio for 90 minutes twice a week, that’s how. And if you’re as determined as she is to stay in shape, you’ll do it too.

Petra Nemcova

Supermodels are bastions of health and fitness. For many women, looking like a supermodel is the ultimate. Let’s face it, though, you’re either born that way or you’ve got to subject yourself to a really crazy diet, right?

According to Petra, she once went on a diet that consisted of just carrots, tomatoes and seafood.

Stacey Kiebler

We thought George Clooney was mad at the time to break things off with WWE beauty Stacey Kiebler, and she’s since got even hotter.

But what tricks does she use to keep so amazingly hot?

“I bought Gwyneth Paltrow’s cook book,” she says. “It’s amazing.”

She also works with the same doctor as Paltrow. So, basically, you need to become like Gwyneth Paltrow.

“Her cookbook was about the elimination diet, an extremely healthy way to eat, so I really admire what she’s doing.”

Katy Perry

Katy Perry has always had curves, something we’ve admired her for. She is without a doubt one of the most beautiful pop singers.

Her body isn’t down to luck or miracles of nature, though; instead, anyone can look like she does. Well, as long as you eat a lot of mushrooms, that is.

Yep, Katy Perry subscribes to a diet called The M-Plan. Basically, it asks you to replace lunch or dinner with mushroom-based meals. The good news is that there are numerous different types of mushrooms out there, with the Portobello mushroom nicknamed “the steak of vegetables.”

The M-Plan promises good things, such as trimmer thighs, bums and tums.


Beyonce loves health and wellness, and recently went vegan for 22 days to help keep her in shape. Although she isn’t a committed vegan anymore, a plant-based diet is still a crucial part of her diet.

Jessica Alba

Sin City star Jessica Alba took drastic action after she gave birth; to lose all that excess poundage, she took to wearing a corset.

“It was sweat but worth it. It was brutal; it’s definitely not for everyone.”

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston is still one of the hottest celebrities on the planet, despite the fact that her 50th birthday is fast approaching.

Naturally, keeping her body beautiful as she gets older is not exactly a walk in the park. Sacrifices have to be made. As well as working out intensively, Jennifer subsisted on baby food for a time. Why? According to her trainer: “Liquid cleanses do help you lose weight, but you will gain more the next week. I wanted something where you can eliminate toxicity and break bad habits but still have your digestive system going. That’s when the baby food cleanse was born.”

Stay happy!

    Nice article. I would add that losing weight is not that hard when done correctly.
