Following a celebrity's diet

A lot of my friends are on diets just because a celebrity they admire is following a particular diet. They seem to think that if a celebrity is doing it, then it must be good (and safe). Have you ever tried a diet because of a celebrity?

No, I dont believe for a second that the diets it's publicised that the celebs do are a)safe or b) as effective as they're made out to be! In fact, half the time, I doubt they're even doing the diets they say they are! Usually it's a publicity stunt and they're actually working out with a personal trainer 10 times a week!

I may have been suckered into celeb workout DVDs on numerous occasions though

No definitely not. I always get these kind of ads now too on Facebook and it really annoys me!

Ugh those secret diet drops one's and the ones that show people who have supposedly lost 2 stone in a month?! Makes me glad my fb rarely works

Yeah I wouldn't bother doing a celeb diet - they have all sorts of personal trainers, and thousands if not millions of s to keep them motivated

I'd be skinny if I was earning that much!

I totally agree with you. I look at what Beyonce, Janet Jackson and Oprah have been through. They can afford to look as fabulous as they want, but there is no way I'd be able to maintain their diet tricks. I actually wonder if celebrities really follow their own diets.

I really doubt that they do! And I hate it when celebs have babies and a month later are stick thin and say they're just lucky! Yea, lucky enough to have personal trainers and god knows what else to get their shape back! It's not fair on other new mothers that can't afford all that and then feel a failure cos they still look 6m pregnant!

I think there's far too much pressure on people now thanks to the celeb culture. I mean, you can't pick up a magazine these days without pics of celebs in bikinis and straplines about their weightloss/gain or articles about diets they follow! It's just not healthy!

I've got quite down in the past looking at people on tv and whatnot thinking about how stunning they are, particularly on things like the x factor. But really, if I were to spend hours in hair and make up, I wouldn't scrub up too badly either! It's just forcing unreal expectations on people.
