Celebrities are constantly in the public eye. They are scrutinized at every turn for how they look, what they wear, and whether or not they are in shape. Over the years, this level of attention to their appearance has driven some celebrities to take drastic and even absurd measures to maintain their weight. Let’s take a look at some strange celebrity diets throughout recent history.
1. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is known as much for pushing the limits of fashion as for music career. To maintain her svelte appearance, this pop diva apparently went gaga for baby food. Reportedly, Gaga tried the Tracey Anderson baby food diet. The diet consists of replacing the first two meals of the day with any Gerber baby food and following it up with a healthy dinner. Amazingly, Gaga is not the only celebrity to attempt this wild dietary regiment. Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon are among others who have given it a try.
Beyoncé’s album Lemonade was an instant classic, but did you know the Queen B also fostered a lemonade diet fad. She supported the Master Cleanse Diet which consisted of drinking a concoction of lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, and water. It was a fast and easy way to drop weight, but not for any length of time. Like most strange celebrity diets that catch on with the public, people tended to gain weight back quickly.
