We have envied the ‘perfect’ bodies of our favourite celebrities time and again but, if buzz is to be believed, they are constantly trying newer forms of crazy diets, which invariably leave us gasping! One week, they are gorging on baby food to get slim; the next week, they are eating cookies or fasting to strip away the weight.

While some work wonders, others are just fads that are here to make us gag in the long run. Here is the bigger question though: Is it safe? Better yet, should you try these diets? For safety – and sanity’s – sake, the answer is no.

You might want to take a leaf from the books of these divas, though, who experimented with the gamut of fads and finally hit on what worked. And what worked for them, just might do the trick for you!
