The Most Dangerous Celebrity Diet Trends in 2017
It’s easy to understand why ordinary people like you and me look up to celebrities. Because hey, whether they’re going out to grab coffee or strutting their stuff on the red carpet, there’s no denying most if not all of them look incredibly flawless.
While makeup can fake what their skin really looks like underneath those layers of gunk, they can’t fake their bodies.
If you’ve been following your favorite celebrity on Facebook or Instagram or even on Twitter you’ll see images and real-time videos of them having fun in their bikinis and crop tops.
But no matter how many times you pause their videos or zoom their pictures to get a better look you’ll realize that your eyes really aren’t playing tricks on you at all and they are indeed the epitome of fit and fabulous.
Not only are these stars talented and beautiful they are also unbelievably sexy as well!
Of course, they should be. These hot celebrities are perpetually bombarded by paparazzi 24/7. And the pressure to look beautiful will always be there as long as they are still in the limelight.
These stars would do anything and everything just so they can maintain their good looks and their svelte figures to the point that they’d go to extreme lengths like plastic surgery or would jump right in to the newest diet craze without verifying whether these are safe or not.
And where does that leave us? If you can’t afford to pay unbelievably expensive doctors’ fees when you get sick because you wound up with an unsafe diet plan then we suggest before you apply a celebrity diet trend on yourself, do some research first. The following are the most…
Dangerous Celebrity Diet Trends in 2017
Experts are giving out warnings that some of these famous celebrity diet trends are in fact harmful to your health. With the increasing interest and fascination with becoming fit, more and more dangerous and unsafe diet trends are cropping up.
Experts want you to know the real deal before you splurge all your money on something that can compromise your health.
The Clean Eating Diet
Jessica Alba and Miranda Kerr are avid followers of the clean eating diet. The concept behind the Clean Eating diet is by not eating any form of processed food and eating only foods that are considered “clean”.
By eating clean it means avoiding refined sugar from your meals, cooking your meals from scratch and eating it in their natural state.
While this may sound healthy, some versions have become so extreme that they’ve excluded diary, grains and gluten from their diet. There are also reported cases of encouraging dieters to eat raw food.
It’s true that reducing refined sugar and avoiding processed food is good for you, categorizing food as “dirty” and “clean” is disconcerting.
A condition called Orthorexia Nervosa can result from this type of diet. This condition involves the obsession with food, eliminating food considered unhealthy and choosing only food that is considered healthy.
The problem with this condition is that people tend to eliminate foods that have nutritional benefits and sees it as unhealthy such as fruits, dairy products and whole grains without scientific evidence.
Experts advise that if your doctor doesn’t advise against these foods then eliminating it from your diet can lead to nutritional deficiencies and can be harmful to your health.
There are no shortcuts to success but diet pills are claiming otherwise. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Sam Faier all admit to using diet pills in their quest to shed weight.
These pills help shed weight by preventing fat from being absorbed by the body while other varieties help you lose weight by melting away the fats.
Some diet pills work by boosting your metabolism thereby causing you to burn excess fat while others work by suppressing your appetite.
Experts say diet pills are very dangerous and should not be taken without consulting your doctor. You’ll never know the side effects of these pills.
Diet pills could be fatal because of the presence of toxic ingredients. So even though celebrities are promoting it, don’t fall for that trap. Exercise and diet are natural ways to lose weight safely.
Celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Nicki Minaj are very vocal about their love for detox teas.
Millions of followers of their Instagram accounts have seen them promoting detox teas, teas that claim to remove toxins from your body, improves your skin’s complexion and helps you lose weight.
But experts believe these teas are actually toxic for you because they contain ingredients such as nettle and dandelion that can cause diuresis and also an ingredient called senna, which is laxative, and is unsafe to take fore more than a week.
People think they are losing weight but the truth is they are actually losing water and they become at risk of dehydration and electrolyte imbalance.
So the next time you see Nicki Minaj flash a smile while holding a mug of detox tea with the brand as a hashtag in her caption, don’t buy it or better yet, ask your doctor about it. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
