Celebrity dieters

Pat Henry advocates a healthy detox diet but some celebrities are fans of more extreme types.

BEYONCE is a fan of the Master Cleanser (or Lemonade Diet) and supposedly used it to shed weight while filming the movie Dreamgirls.

It involves a drink made from lemon or lime juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and water.

Reportedly, actor KATIE HOLMES’ intense detox diet involving herbal drinks and a ‘purification procedure’ left her feeling lethargic.

More sensibly, TV presenter CAROL VORDERMAN’S (above) detox diet involves refraining from consuming the following items: processed foods, tea, dairy, coffee, sugar, bread, alcohol, pasta, rice and carbonated beverages, and eating at least five servings of fruit and vegetables per day, along with plenty of water. It’s done over 28 days and aims to give your body a healthy detox without going over the top.
