Celebrity diets are always changing, making it tough to figure out what creates the celebrity glow. Oftentimes, our favorite stars use crazy diets, making us wonder how effective they can actually be.

Recently we reported on the effectiveness of three crazy celebrity diets – including the Baby Food Diet, used by Jennifer Aniston and touted by personal trainer Tracy Anderson, the Facial Analysis Diet, and the Coconut Diet. Today we bring you three more crazy celebrity diets, covered by That’s Fit, and give you the inside scoop on whether they work.

Master Cleanse – Beyonce

Beyonce used the Master Cleanse to lose weight for her role in Dream Girls. This diet, also known as the Lemon Cleanse or Maple Syrup Diet, involves drinking maple syrup, lemon juice, water, and cayenne pepper concoctions for several days. This diet severely restricts calories and is extremely low in nutrients – not a good idea to follow. Beyonce herself said she wouldn’t recommend people try the diet.

Cabbage Soup Diet – Sarah Michelle Gellar

The Cabbage Soup Diet involves eating soup all the time. A celebrity follower of the diet is Sarah Michelle Gellar. Although generally soup can be tasty, this diet involves eating a watery mixture of cabbage, peppers, onions, and celery for seven days! Once again, the weight loss results from calorie restriction, and once the diet ends, the weight comes back on.

Grapefruit Diet – Brooke Shields and Kylie Minogue

Brooke Shields and Kylie Minogue supposedly lose weight by following the Grapefruit Diet. This diet involves eating half a grapefruit before every meal. Supposedly the diet works because of the fat-burning qualities of grapefruit. However, the success of the diet truly turns on calorie restriction. The meals you eat following the diet total 800 calories per day, much less than the recommended minimum of 1,200. Once you can’t handle the starvation and return to normal eating, pounds are likely to return.
