Celebrities always look so fantastic, and so it’s no wonder they become such icons for so many of us. And while they might have access to all of the health advice, personal trainers, equipment and the best nutrition- there are actually a few little tricks they do which any of us can try ourselves. Here are some of the best celebrity weight loss secrets.
Unusual Health Foods
There are a number of foods that are said to have surprising health benefits. Apple cider vinegar for example is said to detoxify the body and aid digestion, even lowering blood glucose levels. Svelte celebs including Miranda Kerr and Megan Fox swear by it, and the trend is becoming increasingly popular. Coconut oil is another popular health food which can speed up metabolism and also increase feelings of fullness after eating meaning you consume less throughout the day. It has been endorsed by celebrity MD Doctor Oz and is used by celebrities including Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston. If you want to give it a go, buy unrefined extra virgin coconut oil and either eat a small spoonful or simply switch out your regular cooking oil and use that instead.
Going Temporarily Vegan
A diet that focuses on plant based products only can be highly beneficial to health and also be helpful in losing weight. Meat and dairy products can be high in saturated fat and so removing these can be very positive for health. Beyonce and Jay Z famously went vegan for twenty two days, if you are looking to detox your body and lose weight this is a great route to take. Even if you can’t commit to becoming a lifetime vegan, a stint like this as well as introducing more vegan meals into your weekly menu can help to shed weight and keep it off
