THE DASH DIET

Fo­cus­ing on low­er­ing and com­pletely pre­vent­ing high blood pres­sure (hy­per­ten­sion), this diet has been ranked as ‘best diet for weight loss’ by Weight Watch­ers and Hol­ly­wood stars in­clud­ing the likes of Jes­sica Simp­son as it helped her lose the fat af­ter her preg­nan­cies. This diet fo­cuses on avoid­ing meat and salt al­to­gether and re­plac­ing such with lean pro­tein, low-fat dairy, veg­eta­bles and whole grains. It also stresses on the ben­e­fits of one’s body get­ting ad­e­quate doses of potas­sium, cal­cium and fiber.

AP­PLE CIDER VINE­GAR SHOTS

Drink­ing ap­ple cider to lose weight was first thought of in the 1980’s, and nowa­days, it counts for one of Hol­ly­wood’s most fa­mous di­ets, as it sup­presses and curbs ap­petite. Me­gan Fox in­di­cates that she drinks ap­ple cider vine­gar shots to help her cleans the body of tox­ins, not only that, but she also claims it re­duces PMS bloat­ing. How­ever, you’ve got to be care­ful as drink­ing it straight up with­out a straw can cause dam­age to your teeth enamel.

THE HOL­LY­WOOD COOKIE DIET

This diet could be the per­fect so­lu­tion for cookie lovers to fi­nally lose weight. It’s all about meal re­place­ment cho­co­late chip cook­ies that have a good source of pro­tein, fiber and 13 vi­ta­mins and min­er­als. How­ever, this diet has rules over in­take tim­ings and amounts of cook­ies con­sumed; such rules in­clude lim­it­ing you to around four cook­ies only for break­fast and lunch, while leav­ing din­ner choices to you to pick your fa­vorite healthy foods. Madonna and Jen­nifer Hud­son seem to love it!

THE WA­TER CRESS SOUP DIET

Wa­ter­cress soup re­mains to be one of Hol­ly­wood’s top fa­vorite di­ets which guar­an­tees promised weight loss re­sults. Wa­ter­cress is an aquatic plant that has sim­i­lar nu­tri­tional value as leafy greens like cab­bage. Its an­tiox­i­dant prop­er­ties that stem from man­ganese, cal­cium, beta-carotene, B vi­ta­mins and an­tiox­i­dant flavonoids, help pro­mote cel­lu­lar meta­bolic func­tions that re­vi­tal­ize the body. El­iz­a­beth Hur­ley is ad­dicted to this soup, men­tion­ing, “I drink at least six cups a day when I am ea­ger to lose a few pounds. It’s fat-less, lowcalo­rie, full of vi­ta­mins and iron, and [is] de­li­cious enough to serve at a din­ner party.”

THE BEAUTY DETOX DIET

This diet method was de­vel­oped by Kim­berly Sny­der’s holis­tic ap­proach for a bet­ter skin glow, more energy and health­ier bod­ies – In­side-out, and it is pop­u­lar due to its un­pro­cessed in­gre­di­ents. It fo­cuses on get­ting rid of tox­ins to al­low the body to burn calo­ries faster. These tox­ins in­clude any­thing pro­cessed or high in acids; i.e. ex­ces­sive in­take of diet so­das, meat, wheat and dairy. Ex­tra acid in the body re­duces the level of min­er­als in bones which af­fects bone strength. Drew Bar­ry­more and Reese Wither­spoon are fans of Sny­der’s diet plans.`

THE HON­ESTLY HEALTHY DIET

For clearer skin, bet­ter con­cen­tra­tion, shinier hair, hap­pier mood lev­els and im­proved di­ges­tion, the “Hon­estly Healthy Diet” is one diet that in­cor­po­rates al­ka­line foods such as greens, al­monds, le­mon and olive oil, whole grains and fish, while re­duc­ing the in­take of sugar, meat and dairy prod­ucts to less than 30% of the over­all diet. It’s inspired by Cor­rett and Edg­son’s book, Hon­estly Healthy: Eat with Your Body in Mind, the Al­ka­line Way. Vic­to­ria Beck­ham is a fan.

SAKARA LIFE DIET

This celebri­ties’ fa­vorite diet fo­cuses on ve­gan and or­ganic food. Cre­ated by Whit­ney Tin­gle and Danielle Duboise, Sakara Life Diet hit it big in New York first, as Gwyneth Pal­trow and Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret model, Lily Aldridge chose this method to lose weight. Sakara Life Diet is con­cerned with col­ors as col­or­ful palates play a ma­jor role in it. It in­cludes foods with a wide range of col­ors for in­creased nu­tri­tional con­tent. It also fo­cuses on bright and eye-ap­peal­ing foods, as its phi­los­o­phy is to eat beau­ti­ful bal­anced foods and avoid ex­tremes.

THE BABY FOOD DIET

Cre­ated by celebri­ties’ trainer Tracy An­der­son, this baby food diet en­tails re­plac­ing two meals at least by eat­ing baby “pu­ri­fied” food, like Ger­ber mini jars. Although it is about por­tion con­trol, it gives you the op­tion to eat non-baby food for din­ner. As crazy as that might sound, Jen­nifer Anis­ton lost around 3 ki­los in one week by go­ing on this diet.
