Are you trying to lose weight but are not seeing the results you might expect. If so then you maybe tempted to read one of the celebrity magazines to find out how your favourite celeb has managed to lose weight in no time at all.
Well, before you rush into making a rash decision read on to discover some of the more ridiculous celebrity weight loss tips we have heard.
You will soon see that most of these tips are silly and are unlikely to result in those results that you crave.
Celebrity Weight Loss Tip #1: Licking cheese
Chrissy Teigen, the wife of singer John Legend has managed to avoid gaining weight while snacking by licking the cheese off her Doritos.
Speaking to Delish magazine she stated:
“I lick off the nacho cheese seasoning and put the chips back in the bag. You still get all the flavour, not all the carbs!”
Celebrity Weight Loss Tip #2: Pickles
Kelly Osbourne has apparently found a way to beat her food cravings.
“When you’re on a diet and you can’t have carbs, what you crave is the texture of bread or the crispiness of a potato chip.”
“What really helps with that is pickles. It stopped me from eating more!”
Celebrity Weight Loss Tip #3: Wearing a corset
Corsets are certainly nothing new, but recently they have seen a bit of a revival with even celebs like Jessica Alba squeezing into one to help with her “waist training”.
While uncomfortable and with warning not to overdo the amount of time worn, there is some benefit to be had from their use.
Celebrity Weight Loss Tip #4: Werewolf Diet
Pop queen Madonna apparently times her meals based on the differing phases of the moon.
Celebrity Weight Loss Tip #5: Oat paste
Living off just one food may help you to lose weight but it is certainly not a healthy method.
However, actress Anne Hathaway did exactly that while preparing for her role in Les Miserables, living off a diet that consisted solely of oat paste.
Celebrity Weight Loss Tip #6: Baby food
In preparation for a movie role, actress Reese Witherspoon swapped her usual meals for jars of baby food.
Celebrity Weight Loss Tip #7: Sniffing grapefruit oil
To help ward off cravings, pop star and occasional actress Jennifer Lopez likes to take a sniff of grapefruit oils.
The scent has been proven to reduce the appetite of rats, so will likely help. Peppermint is another scent that you can use to reduce food cravings.
Celebrity Weight Loss Tip #8: The 5 Hands Diet
Apparently in order to keep ex-Spice Girl Victoria Beckham slim, she has reportedly previously tried the 5 Hands Diet, where you are only allowed to eat 5 handfuls of food per day.
Starving yourself is never a good idea for long-term weight loss, and will likely leave you deficient is certain vitamins and minerals essential for good health.
Celebrity Weight Loss Tip #9: Cookies
Another celebrity weight loss tip that we would definitely not recommend is that of Ex-Jersey Shore star Snooki.
It has been reported that to keep the weight off she would eat 5 cookies a day, alongside 1 special meal.
Celebrity Weight Loss Tip #10: Water
While it is of course a good idea to drink water, and we are advocates of this particular tip as you really should be trying to avoid those sugar-filled caffeinated soft drinks.
What we cannot recommend is living off 6 litres of water everyday, which is reportedly what Khloe Kardashian has tried previously.
There have been reports of death by people who have suffered water intoxication (sometimes called hyponatremia) through the consumption of too much water.
Celebrity Weight Loss Tip #11: Cleaning your teeth
Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson has said that she will clean her teeth often as the taste of mint will put her off eating.
Celebrity Weight Loss Tip #12: Drinking vinegar
Megan Fox has revealed that she had drunk vinegar in the past to “clean your system and reduce water weight”.
Yet, the problem with water weight is that it is quickly replaced the next time you drink.
For weight loss you need to focus on fat loss not water loss. This means you should focus on eating healthily and getting regular exercise not faddy celebrity weight loss tips.
