2012 Celebrity Diet Trends Align with Yahoo’s Top Search Terms

We’re as guilty as anyone else, but it’s certainly that time of year to put together the lists. It’s a way for us to archive the time that has passed and even put it in to perspective. It’s also simply a lot of fun!

Yahoo’s Top Search terms for 2012 were just released, and as usual, the list is littered with celebrity names. The election took the number one spot this year, so at least we’re looking for a little bit of substance when we’re not searching for Lindsay Lohan’s latest shenanigans or how much weight a Kardashian sister has or hasn’t lost.

This year’s top 10 search terms aligned quite nicely with some of the biggest trending topics in diet and weight loss, namely for their celebrity connections.

We don’t know if has made any top baby name lists yet, but Kate was certainly the name to have on Yahoo! this year. Both Kate Middleton and Kate Upton made it in to the top 10 searches.

The Duchess ranked, no doubt, for the ridiculous photo scandal that never should have happened, but everyone also had a keen eye on her weight. That’s sure to become a point of continued interest as she and her prince announced they’re pregnant with the next royal heir this week. She made The Dukan Diet famous during her wedding planning, so whatever method she uses to lose the baby weight will no doubt become all the rage, too.

Kardashian Sisters and QuickTrim Face $5 Million Lawsuit

Kim Kardashian along with two of her sisters are being sued for $5 million dollars for allegations the sisters and the makers of QuickTrim made false claims about the product’s weight loss effectiveness.

The Kardashian sisters had an endorsement deal with the supplement company. Their participation and the company itself came under attack when a lawsuit was filed in a New York federal court this week. The suit is on behalf of four plaintiffs from New York, California, and Florida.

The plaintiffs stated that the claims made by QuickTrim and their spokeswomen, the Kardashians, were “false, misleading, and unsubstantiated.” In addition, the suit stated that there was “no competent and reliable scientific evidence supporting any of these claims.”

According to the lawsuit, QuickTrim’s main ingredient is a large dose of caffeine and various herbal ingredients. It’s claimed that the supplement was never clinically proven as effective.

Kardashian-Endorsed QuickTrim Contains Raspberry Ketones

khloe kardashian and kin kardashian in purple bikinis Raspberry ketones have been a major subject of discussion in the weight loss world after Dr. Oz touted them on his show as a “miracle fat-burner.” Raspberry ketones are a widely available supplement on their own, but they are also an ingredient in several QuickTrim products. QuickTrim is the diet supplement promoted by the Kardashian family and is credited with helping Kourtney Kardashian to shed her modest baby weight.

QuickTrim offers a number of different weight loss products, including a 14-day “Burn & Cleanse” that features pills and a liquid “Fast Cleanse.” Two of the QuickTrim diet supplements contain raspberry ketones: the “Extreme Burn” and “Hotstix.”

Extreme Burn is a pill that claims to boost the metabolism, causing it to burn more calories, in addition to curbing cravings and giving the user an energy boost. Other ingredients included acai extract, vitamin C, caffeine and a number of fruit extracts. This product is a stimulant, and may cause side effects such as increased heart rate.

Celebrities Reveal Their Secrets for Looking Great in 2012

by Kelsey Murray

Have you ever noticed that celebrities almost always seem to be in great shape? I mean, they kind of have to; it’s their job. But I still wonder, “How do they do it? I mean, really, how do they do it?” Find out how Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, Amanda Seyfried, and Olivia Wilde keep their awesome bodies year-round.

Katy Perry
Perry is known for wearing body baring, skimpy costumes on stage during her performances, so she has to stay in great shape in order to look good while jumping around on stage.

“[Katy] trains really hard with Harley Pasternak in LA,” said Jaimee Zanzinger, executive editor at Us Weekly. “They circuit train together. So she’ll go from hitting the treadmill to the jump rope.”

Kim Kardashian
Kardashian has some amazing curves and she makes them even more impressive by maintaining an intense workout routine.

“When it comes to workouts, Kim Kardashian takes no prisoners,” said Zanzinger. “She goes from one move to another and really mixes it up. She runs, she does lunges and pull-ups. She focuses on moves that will allow her to keep those curves while blasting that body fat.”

She also avoids sugar in her diet and eats organic foods. Another interesting part of her workout is that she skips water breaks while exercising.

Weight Gain Affects Khloe Kardashian’s Self-Image

Khloe Kardashian has said that she is always fighting up and down fluctuations in her weight. Even after a year and a half as a spokesmodel for QuickTrim diet and weight loss supplements, along with sisters Kim and Kourtney, she says that she has let herself go and re-gained the weight she had lost. Prior to marrying NBA player Lamar Odom, Khloe reported that she had lost 30 pounds with the QuickTrim supplements and increased exercise. She was even featured on E!’s “Remarkable Celebrity Body Bouncebacks.”

The variance can be seen in all the paparazzi photos of Khloe. Sometimes it is even difficult to recognize her. Khloe told Perez Hilton that she avoids reading what is written about her, yet comments about her weight still impact her. She is quoted, “I feel like no matter what I do, I never look good enough to everybody else.”
