Celebrities experience the most pressure when it comes to losing and maintaining weight. These unusual tricks enable celebrities to manage hunger and unhealthy cravings to enhance weight loss.Here are some of the known celebrities who went on an extreme diet:


In 2006, Beyoncé admitted that she followed a purely liquid diet of cayenne lemon water to prepare for her role in "Dreamgirls." Beyoncé was able to drop 20 pounds in two weeks to achieve her goal, which was a complete torture according to the singer-actress.

Natalie Portman

Another extreme diet that an actress had to go through to prepare for a role includes Natalie Portman. Portman had to lose 20 pounds for her role in "Black Swan" so she ate only almonds and carrots for more than a year to get into character, according to Shape.

Reese Witherspoon 

Famous for a perfectly toned body, Reese Witherspoon replaced breakfast and lunch with consuming jars of baby food and eating only one proper meal a day for dinner. Aside from not needing to cook and the cost-friendly benefits, baby food does not contain any preservatives and is full of vitamins.

Christina Aguilera 

Singer Christina Aguilera prefers to follow the Color Diet, which is a seven-day long process, which allows Aguilera to eat foods that are only of the same color. For example, the singer would only eat foods that are white such as eggs and cauliflower on a particular day and will work her way through the color spectrum.

Kim Kardashian 

After giving birth to her daughter North, celebrity mom Kim Kardashian sculpted her midsection by wearing a corset. Waist training helped Kardashian trim down her food intake and has personally vouched for the technique ever since.

Jessica Alba 

Similar to Kardashian, Jessica Alba also said that she used a corset to get back to her pre-baby body after giving birth to two babies. "I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was brutal; it's not for anyone," said Alba.

Megan Fox 

To be able to cleanse out her system, "Transformers" star Megan Fox drinks apple cider vinegar before every meal to detoxify her body, according to Your Best Fat Burner. Fox admitted that she does not enjoy dieting and exercising which is why apple cider vinegar can help get rid of the water and sugars in her body.


Madonna followed the most bizarre weight loss trick, which was to prepare food, place it in front of you and hold it only up to your mouth. The so-called "Air Diet" tricks your brain into thinking you are eating without actually consuming anything.
