By Melissa Lee

It’s no secret as to why celebrities are always in shape — between their personal trainers and strict diets tailored to their body types, being fit is basically part of their job descriptions. Fad diets are also typically made famous thanks to the stars that try them out, but thankfully, they tend to pass their wisdom down to us in regard to whether or not they even work. In the mix of all those crazy diet tips (say goodbye to juice cleanses!), there are actually a few diets that are quiet effective — luckily, Cupid is here to explain which celeb diets work.

If you’re looking to lose weight, try checking out some of these celebrity diets and tips!

1. The Hamptons Diet: Made famous by celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson, The Hamptons Diet was created by a former medical director. Essentially, this diet is very low-carb and focuses on consuming lean meats and healthy fats. Though it has been criticized for encouraging participants to completely cut out carbs, it has been proven to help those lose weight and keep it off.

2. Balance: Ayesha Curry recently opened up about her post-baby weight loss journey and how she managed to lose 20 pounds without completely restricting herself. She explained that her personal nutritionalist encouraged her change her lifestyle rather than go on a temporary diet. Curry also added that she began eating densely nutritious foods (beans, smoked fish and avocados for example) and focusing on portion control.

3. Focus on quality eating: The Biggest Loser‘s Jen Wilderstrom explained that one day of quality eating is equivalent to two weeks of workouts. She says that solid nutrition consists of a quality day of water, sleep and healthy food (proteins, healthy fats), and from there, it will begin to get easier as you form a routine.

4. Eat breakfast: Nike Master Trainer Marie Purvis emphasized the importance of eating breakfast in the morning, regardless of whether or not you’re trying to lose weight. Purvis advises to eat 30 grams of protein within 30 minutes of waking up. While this may sound like a lot, she says that starting your day like this is essential for weight loss, staying lean, and powering throughout the day.

5. Snack healthily: When trying to get through that long gap between lunch and dinner, it’s important not to munch on fatty foods. SoulCycle instructor Jera Foster-Fell says she likes to snack on dried fruits (simple carbs that give her a quick source of energy), while celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson prefers protein bars.
