We all have looked at celebrities in an awestruck manner wondering just how they manage to keep their bodies looking like they have been photoshopped. A lot of sacrifice and strength goes in order for them to have such desirable bodies. For one, they follow a strict diet. Here are some of the top celebrity diets.

1. Macrobiotic diet

Pop diva Madonna popularized this diet which made her lose 12 pounds successfully. This diet is high in fiber and foods consumed include uncooked foods and soy products. However, the macrobiotic diet is not ideal to pursue for the long term and you are sure to get bored of this bland palate soon.

2. Fruitarian diet

What do Mahatma Gandhi and Steve Jobs have in common? Not much apart from their fruitarian diet perhaps. When 75% or more of your diet consists of fruits, then this diet is being followed. Vegetables, fruits without seeds and nuts are the main things to consume while dairy and meats are banned.

3. Maple syrup diet

Beyond singlehandedly bought this diet into global spotlight when she attributed her miraculous weight loss and toned body in her movie Dreamgirls to this food plan. In this short term diet plan, users have to take in only a syrup mixed with lemon juice, water and cayenne pepper, for a about two weeks. Besides helping in losing weight, this diet also makes the skin clearer and glowing.

4. Blood type diet

Renowned personalities like Elizabeth Hurley and Martine McCutcheon have recommended the blood type diet to aspiring dieters for getting in shape. While Hurley post 12 pounds while following this diet, McCutcheon slimmed down to a size 10 on this regimen. This food plan divides people into 4 sections namely, A, B, AB and O. People are advised to eat as per the blood group and the diet’s creator Dr Peter D’Adamo believes that if we stick to suggested foods suitable for different blood types, the body will digest food more effectively, resulting in weight loss.

5. Atkins diet

The Atkins diet is a favorite among celebs like Renee Zellweger and Jennifer Aniston.
The basic theory it follows is that if carbohydrates are restricted, the body turns to fat to burn as its main energy source, thus resulting in a rapid and dramatic weight loss. Dieters are however allowed to consume healthy carbs such as wholegrain bread, brown rice, pasta and fruit and proteins in the form of grilled chicken, lean meats and fish.

6. Detox diet

if you wish to have a waif thin frame like supermodel Kate Moss, then following a diet endorsed by her would be apt. She lost 8 pounds in 21 days by following this diet. She had to chew her food up to ten times which helped in faster digestion. She also ate red meat and nuts as part of the detox diet.

7. Zone diet

The Zone diet came into the spotlight after Jennifer Aniston attributed her 9 pound weight loss to it. This diet has been created by Dr. Barry Sears and besides Aniston, celebrities such as Sarah Michelle Gellar and Demi Moore also swear by it. The food plan utilizes a 40-30-30 approach in which dieters eat 40 percent of their daily caloric intake from carbohydrates, 30 percent from protein and 30 percent from fat.
