There’s a lot of pressure in the show business, and it makes some Hollywood stars do weird stuff. And I’m not talking about dangerous movie stunts or unconventional lifestyle. But rather, the celebrities’ routines and diets that are seemingly unsafe.
A good physical appearance is one of the most important aspects that famous people need to maintain in order to keep the fame and glory in the showbiz industry. Kim Kardashian-West, for example, injected her own blood into her face practicing the vampire facials, while Tom Brady drank not only eight glasses of water, but rather, gallons to avoid getting sunburns.
Beyonce’s Extreme Diet Plans
Meanwhile, Beyonce with her superficially non-aging figure, went through a lot of extreme diet plans to achieve her ideal weight. In an interview with Oprah in 2006, she revealed that she did a 10-day Master Cleanse diet, in which she could only intake lemon, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper concoction.
Beyonce succeeded in losing weight in preparation for her role in Dream Girls at that time. However, according to studies, Master Cleanse could actually result in heart and kidney malfunctions. And in the long run, it may have a long-term weight gain side effect. Aside from that, dieters might starve and feel weary due to the lack of essential nutrients like protein, fiber, and healthy fats.
Just recently, Beyonce introduced yet another dangerous diet plan that she’s been recommending to her fans. It actually sounds safer than the Master Cleanse. It includes a variety of plant-based recipes that aims to limit the dieters’ calorie intake by only 1,400 daily. However, the nutrition expert, Daniel O’Shaughnessy said, this diet requires a nutritionist’s supervision.
Mariah Carey’s Norwegian Salmon Diet
The singer-songwriter Mariah Carey had an unpleasant diet as well. She even admitted that most people would not like it.
Her daily meals include nothing but a Norwegian salmon and capers. She also said that it was the worst diet that she ever tried, and it was difficult for her to lose her cravings.
Chris Pratt’s Daniel Diet
But not all diet plans focus on losing weight. Chris Pratt’s Daniel Diet, for instance, aims to feed not just the stomach, but also our soul. It promotes the Christ-centered teachings in the bible, wherein dieters cleanse their bodies with fruits, vegetables, and unseasoned bread for a total of 21 days to let the body naturally withdraw all the toxins.
Perhaps, with moderation and enough research, these diet plans could not be harmful and would help us feel good about ourselves. And most importantly, health should always come first before anything else.
