Celebs’ Diet tips

Summer is coming!

Euh… All over the world apart from the UK…

Ok, hopefully we will be lucky enough to have a nice and warm summer this year but please not as hot as Paris!

And even if the sun doesn’t want to visit the country, we still to be fit and to shed a few of those extra pounds for French, Caribbean or American beaches this summer holidays.

Celebs allow themselves incredible whims to stay fit. Jennifer Aniston, Lady Gaga and Cheryl Cole are big fans of the new ” baby food diet “. Seeing their perfect body, it probably works.

This diet consists in eating only small jars for babies during the day and (hopefully!!) ending  with a “normal” dinner.  You should eat around 14 jars a day to be exact and they only contain 100 to 150 calories bringing you the exact calories & vitamins recommended daily allowance.

Baby foods are regulated, their contributions in sugar, salt and fats are regularly controlled. Combined with exercises, you will probably  lose around 10 kilos in the six weeks.

Oh la la! I am a little bit perplexed, those Americans they are just crazy!!

But…

Tracy Anderson who regularly coach Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow is at the origin of this particular diet. However,  it doesn’t mean that it’s healthy and efficient as numerous nutritionists are protesting against this diet.

In fact, baby foods are adapted for babies but not for adults exercising regularly.

So think twice before starting this very weird diet!

Besides, I will recommend the DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) is a diet promoted by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (part of the NIH, a United States government organization) to control hypertension.

This eating plan is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy foods; includes meat, fish, poultry, nuts and beans; and is limited in sugar-sweetened foods and beverages, red meat, and added fats. In addition to its effect on blood pressure, it is considered a well-balanced approach to eating for the general public. It is now recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) as an ideal eating plan for all Americans.

As far as I am concerned, I hate diets and can’t follow them and like my French teacher taught me at school: “eat everything you want with moderation” 😉

Born and raised in Paris, I am a Marketing and Sales professional. And now, I am a blogger! I used to be Australian, German and French (Parisian) and now a Londoner lady since February 2010. I love everything about France: the food, the wine, the fragrances, the designers, the music and our attitude, energy & character. My blog is not all about cosmetics nor fashion, is about what is happening in the world in a French perspective: how do we think? What do we think? Why do we thing like this? And what do we French think about YOU strangers from all over the world! It was my passion for arts, culture, international events & news, fashion that drove me into creating La French Attitude and I love every minute of it and I hope you too! Enjoy! Sté xxx

  1. Is it possible to have fois gras in any diet?

    • To be honest I am not a professional of diet and as my article mentionned I eat all that I want. If you do not eat fois gras everyday, why not? I love fois gras! ❤
