3 Diet Plans Keeping Stars Stay Slim

The celebrities are under public scruntiny all the time - their wardrobe, relationships, makeups, and more critically - their bodies - particularly for the females. There seems to be the trend that they're constantly on the diet trying to slim.

Many of them need to keep their star power by staying in red-carpet-ready shape. Here are the 3 most common diet plans used the stars to stay slim.

#1 The Zone
Barry Sears Ph.D. devised the Zone plan in his 1995 best-selling book. Every meal is based on a balance of 40% good carb, 30% lean protein and 30% healthy fat.

It may be confusing enough to count the calories, not to mention to divide the percentages. Here is the quick check. Visually divide your plate in 3 portions. Put 1/3 with lean-protein food. Fill 1/3 with fruits and vegetables. Fill the rest with whole grains good carb. Top off the plate with small healthy fats such as olive oil, nuts or avocado.

#2 The Mini-Meal Plan
You've probably heard this before that it's not what you eat but when you eat that matters. Instead of eating on 3 big meals a day, break down the target calorie and spread out to 5 to 6 mini meals for about every 3 hours.

The advantages are that your blood sugar levels don't go through highs and lows throughout the day. By eating regularly in smaller portions, your metabolism engine will be running all the time to keep the calories burning. You'll be less likely to be hungry to get on binge eating or making poor food choices.

#3 The Natural
This is not a diet plan but an eating philosophy. The natural foods plan focuses on eating fresh, whole foods that are minimally processed, locally and organically grown, if possible.

There is really no limitation in this plan as to what to eat. But you still have to watch the total calorie intake.
