Your Most Outrageous Diet Tricks

Weight loss isn’t easy, and it’s no piece of fat-free cake for the stars, either. Even they rely on some pretty crazy methods to drop unwanted pounds. When she needs to lose weight, Cameron Diaz cuts out all white food (like pasta and bread) because it can have high amounts of sugar, her trainer Teddy Bass told InStyle. And Lily Allen attended hypnotherapy sessions … at a reported $600 an hour! … to help curb her eating. We’ve heard of lemonade diets, soup diets … even cookie diets!

Now tell us: What’s the craziest thing you’ve done to lose weight? We promise not to judge!

Well, like Cameron Diaz, I have cut out all “white” foods (containing gluten). My father has a gluten allergy, and after seeing his weight loss, I decided to give it a try (also because I will inherit it later in my life). It has improved my skin, and I have more energy to do the things I love.

Good for Cameron Diaz, she did all that with no bread and pasta .So it works.

When I was a freshman in college, there was a lot of pressure to be thin. Everyday I would try to only eat 500-700 calories a day and run 4-5 miles at the track. That obviously could only last a few months, considering my schedule, but I did lose about 20 lbs. It got to the point that I could only eat 1000 calories a day without gaining weight because my body was conserving as many calories as possible.

I started the lemonade diet (Master Cleanse) today. I am starving and trying to remind myself that I want to drop weigh quickly so I stick with it.

when i really need to drop the extra pounds quickly i switch up my meals. i have the largest for breakfast and that could be anything i want, then go smaller for lunch and less for dinner but the kicker is, i wouldn’t eat anything after 7pm… then just watch the waist line slim down!… it works!

I’m starting the Master Cleanse (Lemonade Diet) tomorrow. It works. I have done it once before and it truly does average about a 2 lbs a day in weight loss. I will do 14 days of this and then follow a Nutrisystem style eating regiment (another excellent diet plan that WORKS!) to complete my goal of a total 70 lbs in weight loss.

Carmen is right on with the “cut out all white foods”, add soda removal and exercise and anyone can do it!

I started doing Turbo Jam and ate TONS of celery because it is a negative calorie food. I ate baked chicken and celery pretty much all day and I lost 20 lbs in a month!

i am a vegetarian and have been since i was 13, and its made me feel so
much better && have so much more energy to things, like working out. && since
I do not eat meat or meat products I substitute my protein with lean fish and lots
of nuts(peanuts, almonds, walnuts ect.) which also make me feel light & full at the same time. so, just a thought, add more high protein foods to your diet such as nuts rather than meats, you may feel better. =]
