diets however have attracted a lot of criticism especially from
dieticians and nutrition experts and many times for a good reason. Most
of the experts fault the celebrities often having dismissed the diet
program all together. Their general sentiments are similar to Samantha

physiologist of the New York University Medical Center, "Just
because someone is a celebrity doesn't mean that they know what they
are talking about in terms of diet and health"
Celebrity Diets - Are They Good or Bad?
one need to understand first is that celebrity diets are basically
the common contentious diets. Only this time they are endorsed or
created by a famous personality. For example the weight loss
diets like South Beach Diet and even Atkins Diet are endorsed
by some stars, while Oprah Weight Loss
and Bob Greene Diet
were created by Oprah Winfrey and Bob Greene respectively. Also

is contentious is the means by which they achieve this weight loss and
whether or not it amount to keeping it off. The 'science' if ever there
is, by which the celebrity diets effect weight loss is considered by
many experts in nutrition as unhealthy and fad i.e. meaning based on
beliefs not factual science.
reports indicate the success rate of these diets to be between 20-40%.
Successful weight loss here means maintaining your weight loss for at

(Its online version Shape Up) develop and promoted by Dr. Phil McGraw
seems like a diet a liberal health expert would recommend for weight
loss. Its food planning is similar to the USDA Food Pyramid, it even
recommends exercising though not with emphasize weight loss exercises
deserves. Most of all it tackles the mental attitude for weight loss,
an ignored aspect of weight loss.

the other hand, celebrities have at their disposal resources you may
not have. They have personal cooks and nutritionist to worry about the
calories, personal fitness trainers to advice them on exercises, free
product and other such retainers that greatly assist in weight loss and
subsequent weight management.
with all this, celebrities still take it too far. Matt Damon in
preparation for a role in the movie 'Courage Under Fire', shed 45
pounds by over exercising and a strict high protein diet. He later was
to look perfect for the role. He however admits the regime induced an
adrenal gland disorder that made him deathly sick.
Quiver lost 70 pounds after dozens of failed diets this time using the Master
Cleanse Diet, a fasting diet. Participants in this program do
not eat, but use a concoction of fresh lemon juice, maple syrup,
cayenne pepper and water. Robin has fasted consecutively for 21 days a
number of times. Not withstanding the fact that extended fasting can be
dangerous. It can lead to dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. But
