    Most celebrities that we admire tend to have an amazing body. Although some of them follow the usual weight loss methods, others venture on a crazy celebrity weight loss diet.

    Strange Celebrity Weight Loss Diets – Including Mariah’s Purple Diet

    We don’t support these diets. If you want to try them though, consult your doctor first.

    Mariah Carey’s Purple Celebrity Weight Loss Diet

    We’ve seen her struggle with her own weight. Since she’s getting older, it’s expected of her to find it difficult in maintaining a good-looking physique.

    After giving birth to twins, it seems like Mariah has managed to stay in shape. Thanks to her diet known as Purple Diet.

    What’s a purple diet?

    Mariah eats things that are purple for three days every week. These purple foods will include grapes, eggplants, and several others.

    Some purple foods are healthy. However, if you focus on them, your diet isn’t balanced.

    Although it may seem impossible to sustain a diet like this, it works for her.

    The Problem

    According to Dr. Talbott, this diet will lead to deficiency in some beneficial nutrients, like carotenoids, lignans and iron in some foods.

    Instead, the doctor recommends eating a rainbow to get the most comprehensive antioxidant protection.

    Beyonce Celebrity Weight Loss Diet – Maple Syrup

    We all know that Beyonce has killer curves. We don’t have to tell her that as she knows it already.

    Her song Bootylicious? She’s telling us that she’s aware of it.

    Beyonce has also managed to stay fit through a cleanse diet. For two weeks, she only drank water with pepper or syrup to prepare for her role on Dreamgirls. And nothing else.

    Yes, this is an extreme diet that you shouldn’t follow, unless your doctor recommends it, which I doubt.

    Steve Jobs Carrot Diet

    The late Steve Jobs might have been the reason of Apple’s billion-dollar value in the market. But he, too, had his own quirks. And one of them was his diet.

    He over-indulged on carrots. This vegetable offers plenty of vitamins and nutrients. But the nutrients aren’t enough to help you have the energy that you need throughout the day.

    In one interview, he admitted that he didn’t have to take a shower because that orange vegetable eliminated his odor.

    He also fasted to help him feel euphoric and ecstatic. But this could be caused by ketosis. It usually develops after a long period of fasting, which may result in mild euphoria.

    But this is an extreme diet that causes an increase in sodium and water loss contributing to weakness, fatigue and nausea.

    Fergie and Her Apple Cider Vinegar Celebrity Weight Loss Diet

    We’ve known her as the only woman on the Black Eyed Peas. Currently, she’s flying solo. She’s also acting.

    Like Beyonce, Fergie, too, has curvy body, which is best described in her popular song “My Humps.”

    Unlike Beyonce and Mariah, Fergie’s diet isn’t dangerous. According to reports, Fergie drinks apple cider vinegar every day.

    This isn’t a surprise for her. ACV offers several health benefits. It also helps in weight loss as it stabilizes blood sugar for a long period of time, thereby, controlling your appetite.

    Experts recommend taking up to two teaspoons before each meal.

    Then again, you shouldn’t rely on it to lose weight. You will never obtain its weight loss benefits if your diet is still rubbish.

    Fergie pairs her ACV with a healthy, balanced diet. And it shows in her great physique.

    Petra Nemcova Celebrity Weight Loss Diet – Vegetables and Fish

    She’s not as popular as those celebrities we’ve mentioned above. But if you’re following the lives of supermodels, then pretty sure you’d know her.

    Petra Nemcova is a supermodel from Czech Republic. Just like any other supermodels, she has to maintain a perfect body.

    But she’s getting old, although not as old as Mariah, Petra is in her 30s. That said, she’s been battling weight gain.

    In order to maintain a healthy, sexy body, she follows a strange diet.

    She only eats foods that you can find in a salad. These would include fish, tomatoes and carrots.  

    Nicolas Cage Eccentric Weight Loss Diet

    He doesn’t have a buff body, just like Chris Hemsworth. But he still does have a great physique, despite his age.

    Thanks to his seafood and poultry diet, Cage has managed to stay in shape. Beef and pork don’t entice his palate. If he eats fish, he only consumes a certain type of fish.

    I’m not sure if he does eat vegetables. Now, I’m wondering whether or not he has a problem defecating considering his unusual diet.

    Hugh Hefner and His Fried Chicken Diet

    He’s the founder of Playboy. Even though he’s already 90 years old, he still manages to keep a healthy, young face.

    What’s his secret? According to reports, he eats a lot of fried chicken. He eats the same foods most days.

    In addition to fried chicken, he also consumes lamb chops, mashed potatoes and pot roast.

    After his stroke in 1985, his dietitian incorporates his diet with vegetables and less salt. But he’s still keeping that same eating plan that he’s been following for decades.

    Did you know that he brings his own food sometimes when he dines out?

    Despite his weird love for comfort foods, he doesn’t overeat.

    This might be the reasons he doesn’t have a body like Rob Kardashian (brother of Khloe Kardashian). He’s still slim and looks healthy.

    His dietitian said that puts more vinegar in place of salt to reduce the amount of his sodium intake while still giving this multi-billionaire the desired flavor.

    Last but not the Least – Renee Zellweger Ice Cubes Diet

    We saw her on Bridget Jones’s Diary. She had to put on more than 40 pounds for that role by eating junk foods.

    When that movie was over, she had to slim down fast. And she did. But she credited her dramatic weight loss transformation by eating only ice cubes.

    Ice cubes are frozen water with no nutritional value. You may like her dramatic transformation but her diet to lose weight isn’t recommended.

    Too Long, Didn’t Read

    Celebrity weight loss diet can be weird, just like the diets of these celebrities. Most of them are unhealthy and extreme. And they’re not worth it.
