The life of celebs isn’t easy by any standards. Imagine refusing to eat sumptuous food because you have to look a certain way for a film. While we can postpone our workout schedules and press the snooze button, our celebs can hardly do that. They have to maintain their looks or face flak from finicky us.
Sometimes, Hollywood celebs can go the extra mile and use weird tactics to lose weight and look fab, not sure whether any of us can follow the same for a long time. Also, celebs always have a team who advises them to do it the right way, so however easy this may seem to you, don’t try these hacks at home!
Natalie lost close to twenty pounds to play a ballerina for the film The Black Swan. When the shooting got over, she was ready to get back into the real world and binge eat pasta. Natalie revealed it was a pain getting into those costumes.
She looked like a waif in those beautiful ballerina costumes, but how did she manage to fit in one in the first place? Well, would you survive on half a grapefruit, a carrot, and a fistful of almonds? Well, Natalie did, and she was rescued by pasta from carrots and grapefruit only after the schedule got over. It did take a lot out of her. But then she went on to win an Oscar for her tremendous performance.
Beyoncé wanted to look her best, svelte, and sensuous in the film Dreamgirls. And she did just that by losing 15 pounds. Well, it would almost seem she just saw food and never ate it.
Yeah, close to a fortnight, she chose to drink only water with lemon juice and cayenne pepper with maple syrup. She also included a few veggies on the top when she liked. Although she looked great, she isn’t planning to try this master cleanse anytime soon.
Anne Hathaway had to look the part of a factory worker dying of TB in Les Miserables’ film, and she pulled it off with aplomb. But how did she do it? Well, Anne was on a 500 kcal diet. Even to Anne, it was hard, as she ate only two thin pieces of oatmeal, some radishes, and a bit of hummus each day.
It was a physical and emotional roller coaster journey for her. She almost became obsessive about it. And the results were evident as she almost became the character she had to essay. It seemed that she was only eating kale and dust!
How to look as good as Madonna in your fifties? Well, or that you will have to sniff at food and not eat them. The singer who can give any twenty-year-old a run for their money, not only cuts out calories but also does away without them. She believes air is enough to sustain you. So, even if he churns up some exotic food in her kitchen, she does not eat it.
She sniffs at it and eats salter water soup instead. So if you are in the mood for some pizza, you do not get to eat it. You would have to smell the pizza and settle for a broccoli soup instead.

Nicole wanted to get back to her pre-pregnancy weight, Nicole had the perfect answer for her post-pregnancy weight gain. It was a harsh diet for all her future projects. So, she ate one hard-boiled egg for each of her breakfast and lunch and two for dinner. However, this type of diet is not considered healthy for anyone. It hardly offers the nutrients that you may require from a well-balanced, so the actress lost a lot more weight than she thought she would.
This type of diet is hardly sustainable, and you can only follow it for a short period, or not at all if you want to lose that extra weight, eat right, and exercise, we think it would be the more sustainable way to lose the extra weight.
