The Hollywood diet is also called the Beverly Hills Diet, but again and especially the "fruit diet". This is the diet of stars who want to lose weight before a shoot. Based on a 6-week program, this diet would allow you to lose up to 10 kilos. Examples of menus, results, our opinion... Let's go behind the scenes of this method that is very popular in the United States.
Principle of the Hollywood diet
The Hollywood diet food program was invented in the 80s by Judy Mazel, the author of the book "The Beverly Hills Diet", who had managed to lose a lot of weight thanks to this diet.
Also known as the "fruit diet", it mainly consists of consuming fruits, preferably exotic because of their "fat burning" virtues.
The Hollywood method recommends certain food associations in order to favor the work of digestive enzymes and to obtain fat melting and flat stomach:
- The fruits are eaten alone, without being mixed with each other, and first in the day.
- Proteins are consumed with proteins and fats.
- Starchy foods and carbohydrates are consumed with other starchy foods and carbohydrates, and fats.
In short, we do not eat fruit, protein and starchy foods in the same meal.
Remember : the first week, or according to some versions the first 10 days, we eat exclusively fruit!
