The Hollywood Diet is often advertised on late night television as a "48-hour miracle diet". While being on the diet, it is claimed that people can lose between 5 and 15 pounds. A central focus of this diet is a "specially formulated juice drink" that is supposed to stimulate your metabolism and help you burn fat.

The Hollywood Diet Juice
While on the diet, people should refrain from drinking alcohol, smoking, and consuming caffeine. Instead you drink the Hollywood Diet juice. This juice will be the only nutritive substance that a dieter may consume for the next couple of days. Food is not allowed. The juice claims to contain 100 percent of the necessary vitamins and minerals you need in a regular diet, along with enzymes and other "botanical extracts".
Hollywood Diet: another fad diet
As is the case with the vast majority of fad diets on the market, this is a diet to avoid. You may very well lose weight on this diet, but it would only be due to severe, unhealthy calorie restriction. The Hollywood Diet juice drink only accounts for 500 calories per day, as opposed to the 2000 calories that an average person needs. It can be quite easy to lose weight if you starve yourself. People who go on this diet can expect to be weak, tired, have difficulty concentrating, and in general not very happy. Also, you won't keep the weight off if you go right back to whatever pattern of eating resulted in you gaining weight in the first place. There are no miracle diets. There are only sound nutritional principles that, when followed over the course of years, not days, can lead to better health and weight control.
