The term "celebrity diet" or "celeb diets" is used to refer to a diet that is supposedly used by or is highly recommended by Hollywood stars, singers, or other celebrities. There are many variations of these celebrity diets, but the one thing they have in common is the promise to lose weight fast. Most of them are low in carbohydrates and calories.

What makes it a "Celebrity" Diet?
Celebrity diets usually involve meals high in protein. Others incorporate gimmicks such as The Grapefruit Diet - eating a grapefruit with every meal - or include a special drink that will supposedly enable you to burn off pounds effortlessly in a few days like the Apple Cider Vinegar Diet . At their core, all are based on a low calorie diet theme. Though most will seek to associate themselves with the trim frame or weight loss success of some notable celebrity, these claims are very difficult to verify. The truth is that many celebrities enlist personal trainers and personal chefs to help themselves stay fit, and devote a substantial amount of time to exercise.
Problems with Celebrity Diets
These "celebrity diets" tend to leave you weak and fatigued. You may lose weight, but it will be because you are starving yourself. Some even encourage you to eat foods high in fat, which can ultimately lead to heart complications.
