Behind every celeb who has managed to shed off extra calories and look fantastic despite their crazy schedules, is a tried and tested diet plan. Take a cue (with your doc’s advice, of course) from these women and decide what suits you best.
Goddess Smoothie diet
When quizzed during an interview about how she manage to lose the post pregnancy weight, Miranda credited it to her Goddess Smoothie diet. She revealed that she starts her day with a fresh alkaline green juice with kale, spinach, cucumber, beets, and lemon. Then half an hour later, she follows it up with a power smoothie which has a protein powder, chia seeds, maca powder, raw cacao, bee pollen, goji berries, noni juice, vitamineral green and coconut water. Thereafter, she completes her three-course power breakfast with oatmeal or eggs.
The Lemonade Diet
Popularly known as the Master Cleanse or Maple Syrup Diet, this diet is known for its weight loss properties. In this plan, no solid foods or supplements are allowed. All you need to have is a lemonade or a concoction of maple syrup, cayenne pepper, lemon juice and water, six or more servings daily. According to the popular medical website, WebMD, ‘after following this fast for four to 14 days, dieters are urged to slowly ease back into solid food, starting with foods like vegetable soup, followed by fruit and vegetables.’
Three Hour Diet
The diet has been called thus because it consists of eating six small meals every three hours throughout the day to minimise cravings. People who follow this diet are encouraged to compare their portions with familiar objects, this way they are more likely to remember the correct quantities of certain foods as prescribed by the diet plan.
Holistic detox diet
This plan includes the consumption of organic foods, especially dark greens and steamed or raw vegetables, brown rice, quinoa, millet or buckwheat, white meat, tofu, fish, eggs, cottage cheese, yogurt, unsalted nuts, and beans such as lentils, garbanzos or split peas.
The Hampton’s diet
Sarah Jessica Parker
Dr Fred Pescatore, the creator of this diet describes it as a ‘low-carb with a Mediterranean twist.’ Some of the most important elements in the diet include healthy monosaturated fats, especially omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish and vegetables. There is also a lot of emphasis on the usage of macadamia nut oil. According to Dr Pescatore, macadamia nut oil is ‘the most monounsaturated oil on the planet.’
Raw food diet
It is a well known fact that cooking leads to a loss of nutrients in vegetables and fruits. In this plan, there is only a limited amount of food that you can eat raw. For instance, it is unsafe to consume undercooked meat. Raw fruits and vegetables, nuts, pulses and natural juices are the main ingredients on which this diet is based.
