5 Weird (And Extreme) Celebrity Cleanses
It’s no secret that celebrities keep up their killer bodies with a lot of help from personal trainers, private chefs, professional aestheticians, and maybe even a plastic surgeon or two. But that doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t occasionally try something totally out there to achieve perfection, like a crazy cleanse in order to lose weight.

Indeed, working out and eating well are the only tricks to really drop pounds and maintain your weight loss, but stars often have to slim down within a very strict time-frame for a project, often relying on weird cleanses, regimens, and products that promise to help free their bodies of toxins and excess weight. Case in point: Beyoncé‘s admission that she lost over 20 pounds for “Dreamgirls” via the scarily restrictive Master Cleanse, and Shailene Woodley‘s recent announcement that she eats clay to cleanse her body.
And just because celebrities are at the forefront of weird weight-loss tactics, it doesn’t always mean they’re healthy, so it’s key to consult a doctor before ever trying any of the cleanses listed here:
What: Clay Cleanse Diet
Surely one of the most bizarre cleansing methods around, Woodley has admitted to eating clay, which has binding properties that cleanse your digestive track by sticking all the rubbish together and removing it when you poo.
What: Bleak Diet
During this diet, you must eat only fish and soups. Worst part? It must be prepared blandly.

What: The Les Mis Diet
While preparing for her role is "Les Miserables," Anne Hathaway famously lost 15 pounds eating nothing but two thin squares of dried oatmeal paste a day.
What: Master Cleanse
To prepare for her role in "Dream Girls," Bey did an all-liquid Master Cleanse which consists of only hot water, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and lemon juice. She lost about 20 pounds, but has said she'll never do it again.
What: 5 Hands Diet
This grueling diet consists of only five handfuls of protein-rich foods per day. Beckham used this diet after her daughter Harper was born.
