Diets in Review - Find the Right Diet for You

The Most Popular Celebrity Detox Diets

One of the hottest new trends in weight loss are detox diets. These cleanses are typically liquid-based and can help people shed unwanted pounds quickly. This is really just water weight and unless you stick to a healthy diet and exercise regimen after, you’ll likely see the weight return.

Hollywood stars have been using these detox cleanses to prepare themselves for red carpet events, and thanks to People Magazine, we’ve got an inside-look at how the likes of Beyonce and Gwyneth cleanse to lose weight.

Beyonce’s Cleanse

Beyonce made the Master Cleanse diet a household name. She prepares this recipe with hot water, lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper and drinks only this for 10-14 days. After using the Master Cleanse (also known as the lemonade diet or the maple syrup diet) to lose 20 pounds for her Dreamgirls role, she told Ellen Degeneres “I was very hungry, therefore I was evil.”

Anne Hathaway’s Cleanse

Similar to Beyonce, Anne uses a lemonade diet to prepare for red carpet photo opps. She uses David Kirsch’s 48-Hour Detox. Celeb trainer Kirsch’s lemonade mix isn’t really any different from the lemonade diet recipe you prepare at home. She drank this four times a day for 48 hours prior to the 2009 Golden Globes.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Cleanse

This starlet is no stranger to cleansing and has been open about her cleansing regimen. “I like to do fasts and detoxes a couple of times during the year,” Gwyneth has said. She worked with Dr. Alejandro Junger to design a one-week diet and detox to help her “kick-start [her] year a bit lighter.” She removed all dairy, caffeine and processed food from her diet and drank a beet-carrot-apple-ginger juice, broccoli and arugula soup and ate meals like a sugar- and soy-free chicken teriyaki.

Giuliana Rancic’s Cleanse

The E! News anchor lost seven pounds before her 2007 wedding by using the The Ultimate Tea Diet. She had to drink four cups of tea each day and eat three light meals, like chicken breast and steamed vegetables.

Megan Fox’s Cleanse

The transformer star uses apple-cider vinegar and water to cleanse her system.

Master cleanse is Ok, but it lacks the nutrients for some people. I am hypoglycemic and got very weak with MC. I tried a new product called Simplifast recently, and felt amazing, and never weak. I guess because it has so many vitamins and electrolytes in it that it helps support the body, while not eating. There is 11g of fiber too. I like the fact it's ready to drink, since I work full time and dont have time to mess with mixing up stuff. This is a pure lemon and maple-B base as well and all natural, without preservatives like simpy slender (another master cleanse). I lost weight, have lots of energy now, sleep great, and drinka bottle every morning now, religiously. its the best I have found.

Karamels Detox Journey

I found that one of the best ways to lose weight is the Master Cleanse Detox. Its cheap, the products are easy to find and its easy to make. I cant believe how much weight I lost on this diet. I might as well be the next Beyonce. :0)
