Nicole Kidman and detoxification

One of Nicole Kidman's recommendations is to arrange for the body to remove toxins every two weeks for three days. These days, Nicole does not eat anything, but only drinks herbal teas and freshly squeezed juices, which, in her opinion, not only contributes to weight loss, but is also good for health.

“Initially, the idea is good, because everyone needs detox: in the modern world, the quality of water, food and air leaves much to be desired. But in three days it is impossible to carry out a full-fledged detox, you need at least 10-14 days of systemic cleansing. One of the pleasant side effects of a full detox program is weight loss. Again, such a result cannot be achieved in just three days."

Mila Jovovich and drinking plenty of water

The basis of Mila Jovovich's diet is to drink two liters of water a day. According to the star, this is the gold standard, significantly contributing to the preservation of good shape.

“Indeed, a large amount of liquid contributes to weight loss. But two liters of water a day is one of the most popular nutritional misconceptions I struggle with. The fact is that everyone has their own norm: you must admit that a man weighing 145 kg and a fragile girl who weighs 45 kg cannot require the same amount of liquid. It is not difficult to calculate the rate: the total volume of fluid consumed per day should be 30-40 ml per 1 kg of body weight. For example, if your weight is 70 kg, then you should drink (70 × 30 = 2100) at least 2.1 liters of liquid per day, and this amount does not include soups, juices, kefir and coffee."

Jennifer Aniston and baby food

Jennifer Aniston is trying different weight loss methods. One of the star's diets is based on puree foods. During the entire period of the diet, meals should consist only of smoothies, mashed soups and other dishes prepared by the method of grinding, while excluding oils and spices.

“Despite the fact that all food must be thoroughly chewed, an adult should receive food not only in crushed form. The diet should also contain coarse fiber from vegetables, fruits, and cereals. Vegetable oils cannot be excluded from the diet (flaxseed, olive, sesame, avocado oil and others), because they are a source of fat-soluble vitamins, antioxidants, which are vital for us."

Melissa McCarthy and the Low Carb Diet

Comedian Melissa McCarthy, captivating with her magnificent charm, nevertheless decided to achieve normal body weight and lost 20 kg as a result of a low-carb diet, during which she strictly limited herself to food.

“Such a diet can be very unsafe for the body. You cannot prescribe a very low-calorie diet to yourself, since such a diet is contrary to our nature. The diet should contain sufficient amounts of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. It is also not recommended to consume large amounts of protein for a long time: it is fraught with an increase in the level of uric acid in the blood, the formation of kidney stones and other pathological processes. Carbohydrates are a source of energy, and if you significantly limit their amount in the diet, then a breakdown is inevitable."
