6 Bizarre Celebrity Diets

August 13, 2011

Celebrities are well known for their crash diets to make sure they always look their best on the red carpet. I decided to do a bit of digging and have found the most unusual diets in Hollywood.

Nicole Kidman's Egg Diet

When she had to slim down for her role in Cold Mountain, Kidman put herself on an all egg diet. The actress would eat one hard-boiled egg in the morning for breakfast, and 2-3 hard-boiled eggs for dinner. And that's it.

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's Cookie Diet

After seeing herself on TV for a couple of seasons of Jersey Shore, Snooki thought it was high time to get in shape. The pint-sized guidette started to follow Dr. Siegal's diet regime, which includes one meal and 6 cookies a day. But these aren't your regular chocolate chip cookies, these diet cookies contain beef and milk protein. They have 11 grams of carbs and are 90 calories each.

Janet Jackson's Sloppy Joes Diet

Jackson has battled with her weight for many years, but earlier this year she revealed a trimmer body during her world tour. While the singer relies heavily on exercise, her personal chef said her diet consists of Sloppy Joes, baked vegetables, and veggie bites (vegetables with eggs and a bit of cheese).

Jessica Chastain's Soy Weight Gain

To gain weight for her role in The Help, Jessica Chastain filled her diet with soy. The actress said she would even microwave soy ice cream and drink it to help pack on the extra 15 pounds. Chastain says she chose soy because she needed to lose the weight quickly after filming the movie.

Beyonce's Maple Syrup Diet

In preparation for her role in Dream Girls, Beyonce put herself on the Maple Syrup Diet. The diet includes drinking a mix of grade B maple syrup, freshly squeezed lemon juice, cayenne pepper and filtered water. To do the diet properly, this unappetizing drink has to be taken for at least 10 days.

Kym Marsh's Half Meals

The Coronation Street actress no longer does crash diets, but when she did, they were always quite bizarre. One of Marsh's most unusual diets was ordering a full meal of food, but only eating half of it. The concept doesn't seem that weird, but that is a huge waste of food if she didn't take home a doggy bag at the end of her meal.

I'm not sure who is dumber in these scenarios; the celebrity or their personal trainer.
Especially the syrup diet. You have to be a complete moron to think this
works. You may as well just drink water and waste away. No need to add acidity and sugar to the concoction.
People, implement a lifestyle change and workout.
Hollywood, stop being so disgusting and making it seem normal
for women to screw up their bodies for your profit. It's gross.
