The Diet Secrets Celebrities try to Hide

The Diet Secrets Celebrities try to Hide
Whenever you watch the latest Hollywood Blockbuster, open a celebrity magazine or see the latest pop video, it is common for people to feel envious of the fantastic shape that many celebrities manage to maintain.
Even after having a child, or passing a certain age, many female stars still manage to look svelte. If you listen to some of these stars in interviews, they often claim to spend just a few hours in the gym, watch what they eat and take good care of their bodies doing activities such as yoga. However, many celebrities are actually using far more extreme methods of keeping in shape, and go to great lengths to hide how they maintain their figures. Many of these dieting methods are extremely bad for your health and should not be attempted by anybody, which is why many celebrities would rather you didn’t know about them.

Caffeine and cigarettes
It is rare to see a celebrity walking down the red carpet to a premiere holding a cigarette, but the truth is, many celebrities are chain smokers and rely on the appetite suppressing nature of cigarettes to keep them from piling on the pounds. Many guzzle coffee and caffeinated energy drinks by the gallon too.
Caffeine speeds up metabolism and prevents hunger. However, relying on such methods to prevent weight gain is certainly not doing their health any good. The effects of smoking are well known, and excessive caffeine intake has been linked to some cancers, affects sleep, raises blood pressure and can cause ulcers and other gastrointestinal problems. Furthermore, both caffeine and cigarettes are addictive.

Fasting
When some celebrities have a public appearance to make, or are about to star in a new movie or pop video, they sometimes resort to starving themselves in the weeks leading up to the event. This can have drastic results. Some eat nothing at all and instead rely on unproven detoxifying cocktails, such as the “master cleanse.” This is a mixture of water, maple syrup, lemon juice and cayenne pepper, which is meant to cleanse the body and provide enough nutrients for the body to go without food, although there is no evidence it does either.

Beyoncé admitted to resorting to this drastic diet in an interview with Oprah, and managed to lose a stone and a half in the two weeks leading up to the filming of her movie, Dreamgirls. Other celebrities take even more drastic measures and drink nothing but water, but according to nutritional experts, they are not only damaging their long term health, but also are risking the chronic problems associated with starvation, such as organ failure.


Supplements
Many celebrities rely heavily on supplements, such as multivitamins or protein shakes. Many of these supplements are excellent for your health. Grass fed whey protein, for instance, has many proven health benefits, such as possessing anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, and many people now take them, including athletes and sportspeople. Multivitamins too, can ensure the body has no vitamin deficiencies and many people use them as a health supplement.

While these products have health benefits when used properly, some celebrities don’t use them as the manufacturers intend. Using whey protein and multivitamins are meant to supplement a normal, healthy diet. However, many celebrities are taking supplements in replacement of food. Some movie and pop stars have been known to drink two or three protein shakes and take a handful of vitamin pills each day, without a proper mean, and while they may lose lots of weight, their bodies are not getting the required amount of nutrients, which could mean they are risking the effects malnutrition.


Excessive exercise
Plenty of celebrities are not shy at a little hard work when it comes to keeping in shape. However, many spend so much time in the gym they are at risk of damaging their bodies. Some celebrities are truly gym junkies and spend up to five hours a day working out, with no rest days.
 Olympic athletes and professional sportspeople don’t train as much as this, even before big events. This type of obsessive behavior ends up doing more harm than good and these gym addicts are at risk of suffering problems such as arthritis, osteoporosis, a suppressed immune system, heart problems and fatigue.


Drugs and medicationBoth legal and illegal drugs are one some of the darker secret celebrities use as a means of losing weight and suppressing appetite. Some legal medicines taken by celebrities include amphetamine-based drugs, which are normally prescribed to control depression and attention deficit disorder. However, some celebrities have been known to take them purely for the appetite suppressive properties. While this may help them shed the pounds, they are taking a big risk with their general health. Laxatives too are sometimes abused by celebrities wanting to lose weight, which too can result in long-term health problems
