Celebrities Tweet What They Eat, But is Their Diet Advice Worth Following?

1209_W_cover_300wIn today’s digital age, it’s not uncommon to hear first-hand how a celebrity slimmed down for a movie or got their pre-baby body back through their posts on Twitter, Facebook or their own blog.

We no longer need to wait to read a story about the latest celebrity diet in the pages of fashion or entertainment magazines.  Now we can get the detox details straight Demi or find out what Gwyneth is eating, or not eating, these days.

Unfortunately, most of these diets don’t deserve to be “liked.”

People may want to look like celebrities (although Demi’s cover on W is stirring up some controversy of its own). I just hope they don’t try to eat like one too.

My latest column for msnbc.com is about celebrity diets.  Read the full story here.

  • I’m an ACE certified Personal Trainer with over 17 years of experience in the fitness industry. Every time one of these celebrities tells everyone how some “great new diet works wonders”, I have to explain to my clients why they are not so wonderful and why they are not healthy. When will we learn that FAD DIETS DON’T WORK!

  • Surely, these women don’t have to go this far to keep their figures. 99% of them have a naturally tall, lean body type and could stand to eat more than maple syrup in lemon juice, and these “cleanses” are superfluous. By “tweeting” like that, they’re insinuating that the diets are what turned them into beauty idols, when most got started on good genes and didn’t start the fads until they were several decades into the profession (odd, why weren’t Demi and Gwyneth touting these attention-grabbing diets when they were still famous for their acting?) Even if I subsisted on water and grapefruits for a year, I would not look like Demi Moore. So I’d rather keep my hair and bone density, thank you.

  • I will never understand why girls and women want to like they are just skin and bones. This is not cute at all…

  • Heya! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new apple iphone! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Keep up the outstanding work!

    I agree with what your saying “People may want to look like celebrities, I just hope they don’t try to eat like one too”…
    The celebrities always seem to fail mentioning what happens after their diet….What they dont tell you is what happens to their bodies and what will happen to your body after such radical weight loss programs….e.g. the typical no carb diet….after which you will usually put on more weight because when you do start eating cards again your body does not know what to do with itself…

    On that note I do have a question for. what is your take on celebrities who endorse weight loss supplements? I own a weight loss website and one of the product articles i wrote called African Mango does it work is supported by celebrities…whats your take on this?

    thanks for the article

    Also what is your take on weight loss products in general?
