11 Celebrity Diets That Are Bad For You





Celebrities are so influential that we are often enamored with everything that they do. When popular stars swear by a product or a regimen, fans quickly purchase and follow their routines without doing any research if they actually work or if they’re just a waste of time and money.

Now, celebrities have been flaunting their healthy lifestyle on social media, interviews, and other appearances. However, professional nutritionists Dr. Caroline Apovian and dietician Brittany Markides explains that some of these celebrity diets are actually terrible for you.

1. Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen’s don’t eat potatoes and tomatoes

Dr. Caroline Apovian, the director of the Nutrition and Weight Management Center at the Boston Medical Center, said:

“Nightshade vegetables are nutrient-rich options, and many of them, such as tomatoes and bell peppers, provide essential antioxidants to the body. The majority of my patients eat nightshades […] this is a healthy group of vegetables that should be included in the diet.”
