GMA: Celebrity Dieting & Weight Loss
Celebrity weight loss has always been a hot topic, but with so many celebrities losing weight for recent films, their weight loss has become more controversial.
GMA: Les Miserables Weight Loss
For the role of starving inmate and refugee Jean Valjean, Hugh Jackman lost 25 pounds. The already buff star went through a dehydration diet to get the sunken look in his face.
Anne Hathaway is not open about how she lost weight for her role in Les Miserables. She played a dying prostitute, Fantine. She said she was supposed to look like she was starving and dying and her weight loss routine is not something she wants others to copy.
GMA: Ashton Kutcher All Fruit Diet
To get into the shape of Apple creator Steve Jobs, Ashton Kutcher went on a fruitarian, or all fruit diet. Yes, it was effective and got him looking the part, but Kutcher was also hospitalized because of complications from the all fruit diet.
GMA: Matthew McConaughey Weight Loss
For his role in Magic Mike, McConaughey was buff and in great health. Recently the actor had to slim down and do some extreme dieting to look the part of a man with HIV. His face was sunken in and he lost his muscle. He said that he had to get his body to the point of eating itself to lose the weight. He’s now almost back to his goal weight, but there are problems that can come from the yo-yo dieting.
GMA: Yo-Yo Dieting Risks
Extreme weight loss and gain is not healthy for anyone. It’s best to lose weight naturally and slowly in order to maintain a healthy weight. When stars slim down or work out for roles it’s often not the healthiest way. Doctors warn that this kind of yo-yo dieting can cause gallbladder issues, pancreatic problems and arrhythmias.
