Sloppy Glamour

“So we meet again…”

Ah yes, it’s every celebrities least favorite time of year; the time when they “must” get up close and personal with some brown-ish green concoctions that rival the look of sewage.

Oh how glamorous award season truly is!

Why oh why is guzzling down vomit-like substances the preached “cure” to ridding excess body fat?

Well, because these detox fad diet book covers all seem to scream, “lose 21 in 21,” and “flat abs in minutes”.

And since everyone, even celebrities, cannot resist a quick fix, they seem to fall for these gimmicks and… wind up slurping down glops of pureed who knows what, only to feel as if their stomach is eating their own internal organs because it’s so pissed off that it’s not getting real food.

I hate it break it to you, but you should listen to your cranky stomach and chuck that mushy once orange and now slightly blue lumpy mixture down the garbage disposal (not the drain, you might need a plumber to unclog it… that could have been YOUR THROAT).

Celebrities may publicize their excruciating tactics to fit into their size negative 10 Versace dresses or Dolce & Gabbanna suits but adopting a lot of diet tactics from “celeb-ville” is about as smart as a chicken with it’s head cut off.

So instead of choking down something you might find in a pig’s trough, why not nosh on whole foods like fruits, vegetables and lean protein. Now that’s an award winning concept!

  1. My sentiments exactly!!!

  2. Definitely words of wisdom here!

  3. I did a detox recently that was more of an elimination diet than a true celeb detox – no green sludge was involved, although there was a nasty protein shake to get down a few times a day. It was embarrassing to even say the word detox to people, I found, I think because they automatically assumed I was doing a lemon juice/cayenne pepper/maple syrup cleanse or something equally wacky. I can now say I’ve tried it once & not have to do it again.

  4. I’m doing a detox right now, but the protein that it includes is vegan, gluten free, and delicious! Honest! It’s all natural, no artificial stuff, and I eat my snacks and dinner as usual. I’m still getting more than adequate nutrition and calories to fuel even my long runs in my marathon training.

    I get what you mean though, it’s really frightening the extremes people will go to in order to fit into a particular size. I’m doing the detox to help figure out if I want to cut gluten and dairy long-term, but I’ve certainly also seen a difference in the way my clothes fit and how I feel.

    • As long as you’re doing it in a healthy fashion, I am okay with that.

      I also believe you really should cut gluten and dairy out of your life. I know you will feel worlds better (even if you were feeling good prior to cutting them out). I haven’t had gluten or dairy in 10 years and really couldn’t be happier with my energy levels and zest for life! :) Good luck!!!

  5. It most certainly is! whole foods baby…whole foods :)

  6. I really despise all the publicity about this celeb or that celeb & how that lose & maintain their weight.. try this person’s diet or that person’s plan.. We all know the truth behind this… us here but not the impressionable girls out there or even women that should know better. I am inspired by real people, not the lies we got in that arena…

    Great post!!!

    • Beautifully said and basically the entire premise of my blog! To punch through all the stupid celebrity fad diet claims!!! :) I am inspired by REAL people who juggle 8 million tasks yet still look fabulous without the help of personal chefs, nannies, trainers, etc!!!
