America’s obsession with rapid weight loss regimens has produced yet another unnatural diet,
even though looking good is a nice accomplishment we should not risk our health, you’ll never look better than when you are healthy…skinny doesn’t mean healthy.
Here are some examples of extravagant cleanses that some celebrities do, that you should not do at all, this is very important because people often follow celebrity footsteps into danger.
• The Master Cleanse (Beyoncé, Ashton Kutcher, Pink)
This Master Cleanse is a trending diet among celebrities and those who want to succeed in weight loss without really trying.
It is practically a starvation plan for 10 days, where all you can drink is lemonade with maple syrup and cayenne pepper, leaving your body lacking the essential nutrients and minerals it needs.
• 48 Detox Diet (Anne Hathaway)
Just like the Master Cleanse, this detox demands you subject your body to severe deprivation for 48 hours, instead of 10 days.
This will only slow down your metabolism since your brain goes into starvation mode as a defense mechanism. Severely reducing your caloric intake can make you impatient, dizzy, moody, and less focused. It can lead to insomnia, skin breakouts, bizarre behavior, and in some cases, shrink your heart volume.
• Commercial Juice cleanses (Salma Hayek, Jessica Szohr, Sarah Jessica Parker)
Blueprint and other cleanse commercial brands have been labeled as a lesser evil, they add up to only 940 calories per day, they will leave your body severely lacking in nourishment.
• Clean program (Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore)
This detox is based on a combination of expensive supplements and approved foods, so you can label it as a strict weight-loss diet rather than a detox.
It is important that you understand that there is no better choice than opting for a healthy lifestyle, eating a healthy diet, packed with vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and lean proteins will do a better job than any crazy detox that may compromise your health instead.
