5 Crazy Celebrity Eating Habits
Do you think you have weird eating habits? You are not alone. Celebrities over the years have opened up about their strange eating behaviors, and some of these will shock you. Turns out some of these celebs struggle with disordered eating just like many of us do.
Reese Witherspoon: Goo-goo GaGa Diet
To limit calories, Witherspoon admitted that she only eats baby food for breakfast and lunch and then eats real food at dinner. While this may sound odd, this diet has taken off on the internet. Known as the Baby Food Diet, many use this technique to shed the pounds. Since baby food is for, well, babies, it happens to be one of the more natural, preservative-free foods one can buy. Therefore, it makes for quite the easy on-the-go meal. Whether or not it is sustainable long-term, however, is questionable.
Andy Warhol; Eat Food You Hate Diet
Warhol has a simple philosophy to staying thin. Simply eat food you hate. Warhol followed what he coined as the Andy Warhol New York City Diet. At restaurants, Warhol would order meals he did not like. After dinner, Warhol would have ample leftovers and would donate the leftovers to a homeless person. He managed to stay thin and feed the hungry. Touché.
Warren Buffett: Coca-Cola Crazy Diet
Chances are, you know who Warren Buffett is. One of the most successful investors in history, Buffett admitted he drinks up to six cokes a day. He was quoted in Fortune saying:
“If I eat 2,700 calories a day, a quarter of that is Coca-Cola.”
Talk about a sugar boost!
Christina Aguilera: The 7-Day Color Diet
Ever hear of the 7-Day Color Diet? Me Neither. Apparently, this diet was popularized by Christina Aguilera. The pop singer states that while on this diet, she only consumes food of one color. While incredibly simple in ideology, a diet like this is tremendously challenging. Each of the week is a different color. For example, day 1 is white for carbs; day three is green for salads and cucumber. On day 7, you do not eat anything at all.
Demi Moore & Madonna: The Werewolf Diet
No, this diet was not inspired by Twilight. In one of the strangest departures of reality, the Werewolf Diet encourages dieters to base their eating habits on the lunar calendar. Yes, this is a real thing. Individuals can try a 24-hour juice fast during a full or new moon or can opt for a more extended plan. Specific eating plans correspond to phases of the moon cycles. Celebrities like Demi Moore and Madonna have admitted to trying the moon diet to shed pounds.
Let’s Get Serious: These Are Not Healthy
While it may be fun to read about these crazy diets, the reality is these diets are not healthy long term. Looking at this list just reveals how much celebrities are just like ordinary people desperately doing whatever it takes to meet unrealistic standards. While most people do not want to hear it, the only way to maintain a healthy lifestyle and fit physique is by exercising and eating wholesome foods on a regular basis.
Many of these diets show eating patterns of anorexia, binge eating disorder, and even orthorexia. It is important to recognize when you’re eating habits are getting too extreme. There are healthy ways to go about reaching your full potential. If you or someone you love is struggling with substance abuse or mental illness, please call toll-free 1-800-777-9588.
