Gwyneth Paltrow

Since giving birth to her two children, Gwyn ditched her macrobiotic diet in favour of something less intense. “I’m not into dieting” she says. “I try to eat as organically as possible and steer clear of sweets because I don’t think there’s any goodness in them.”

Drew Barrymore

Drew dropped (and kept off) 12kg following what she calls the ET Diet – Eating Turkey! Previously a strict vegetarian, Drew believed her body was ‘craving protein.’ With too many refined carbs sending her blood sugar yo-yoing, upping her lean protein intake got the gorgeous Charlie’s Angels producer back on form.

Uma Thurman and Lucy Liu

Uma and Lucy include plenty of natural diuretics in their diet before a big event on the advice of their nutrition coach, Jackie Keller. “Up your intake of parsley, watermelon, watercress and aubergine,” she says. “ Fennel, grapefruit and peppermint teas allow your body to release water.”

Halle Berry

Halle’s trainer, Harley Pasternak, forbids having seconds at dinner. He tells his celebrity clients to leave a few bites of food on their plate to avoid overeating.

Kylie Minogue

Kylie eats a grapefruit before every meal - a natural diuretic that helps to fight water retention and bloating.

Charlize Theron

With a super-healthy attitude to food, Charlize grills, never fries her food, eats low carb and drinks shots of energizing and detoxifying wheatgrass.

Kelly Brook

Stunning Brit babe Kelly sticks to home-made soups and salads if she wants to keep her weight down before a big event.

Salma Hayek

Along with belly dancing, Salma keeps slim by eating 5 small meals a day. Her favourite? Tuna salad made with celery, tomatoes, cucumber, olives and coriander.

Jennifer Lopez

American Idol judge Jennifer’s a huge fan of AriZona pomegranate green tea, which has been found to stimulate weight loss by boosting metabolism and speeding up fat oxidation. Put the kettle on then, Jen!
