9. Mariah Carey
Many modern diets place an emphasis on eating protein to lose weight, but pop diva Mariah Carey has a very specific source. In 2016, the singer told E! News that she maintains her figure by eating “Norwegian salmon and capers every day — that’s it.” While eating only protein can stave off your hunger, it robs you of essential nutrients your body needs to be healthy — probably not a good idea.
10. Marilyn Monroe
The Cut reports that in a 1952 interview with the now-defunct Pageant Magazine, the late movie star detailed her self-professed “absolutely bizarre” dieting habits. She told the magazine that her breakfast consisted of “two raw eggs whipped in warm milk,” after that she would skip lunch and then “broil liver, steak, or lamb and eat it with five carrots.” To top it all off, Monroe would eat a hot-fudge sundae for dessert.
This next sports icon you wouldn’t expect on the list. Maybe his wife, but HIM?
