Last spring, the British tabloid Heat wrote that Lady Gaga “has embarked on a dangerous ‘baby food diet’ in a bid to stay slim.” The rumor was quickly squashed by Gossip Cop, who confirmed with one of the star’s reps that it’s “not true.” Other celebrities reported to have done the diet include Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, but we have yet to see any confirmation of these rumors.
Nonetheless, the “Goo Diet,” created by Madonna’s trainer Tracy Anderson, is seeing a resurgence as bathing suit season hits. The Daily Mail reported that baby food sales have spiked by 20 percent in the UK. The basic idea is that you substitute jars of baby food for solid meals. One version recommends eating 14 jars per day, and another plan recommends adding a healthy dinner at the end of the day.
While some claim that you can lose as much as 20 pounds in six weeks on this diet, health experts say the fad diet is far from healthy.
Harley Pasternak is a Canadian personal trainer, author, and public speaker. He currently lives in Los Angeles, CA. and is possibly best known for his popular diet and fitness book, the 5-Factor Diet.
The 5-Factor Diet was originally only intended for use amongst celebrities. Some of the first clients to reap the benefits on this diet and fitness plan included Jessica Simpson, Kanye West, John Mayer, and Alicia Keys. Today, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Miley Cyrus are also avid fans. The 5-Factor Diet is easy to do, doesn’t require lots of equipment, and does not take a long time (only 25 minutes of exercise each day). The 5-Factor Diet also has received great reviews from DietsInReview fans: 100 percent who have tried this diet liked it.
Lady Gaga has reportedly ordered crate loads of Neuro Trim, says the Mirror UK. Apparently, the over-the-top pop star had been using the stuff to curb her appetite during her international “Monsters Ball” tour.
Neuro Trim is a low-calorie diet supplement that contains green tea extracts and resveratrol, which supposedly has anti-aging properties. The makers of Neuro Trim claim that fiber from the Japanese konjac root swells to 200 times its size temporarily, causing the body to feel full. The drink also contains caffeine, for a short-term energy boost.
Abs like Lady Gaga. Arms like Katy Perry. Amanda Seyfried’s butt. We all want to look like the celebrities, but most of us don’t have access to the trainers or the time. Let’s face it, it mainly comes down to not having the money that stars have for fitness.
In a recent online article for That’s Fit, trainer to the stars Harley Pasternak shared some of the secrets. The author of “5-Factor Fitness: The Diet and Fitness Secret of Hollywood’s A-List,” Pasternak is known for training some of the best-known bodies in the biz, like Miley Cyrus, Halle Berry, and Jessica Simpson. His premise of “less is more” definitely has merit.
Lady Gaga has shed some light on her diet practices in an interview with the Daily Telegraph. None of it has to do with her alleged involvement with the Baby Food Diet:
“I’m on a very strict healthy pop star diet. I don’t eat bread, just vegetables and salad and fish. Eating like that is much better for me anyway, but on Sundays I sometimes eat pasta,” the singer revealed.
So, even someone known for her excesses (at least in the wardrobe department) can even exercise a little moderation.
