Detox and Cleanse Diets: Should You Try?

Well, I did try the Master Cleanse last year, I lasted a day and half, I just can't ... I love food. Anyway I have friends who seem to last the 10 days, more frequently, than i anticipated. So here are some detox diets to consider.
Celeb Detox Diet #1: Salma Hayek
Cleanse diets are nothing new to Salma Hayek, who credits her slim and sexy shape to the juice cleanses she started doing 15 years ago. Salma worked with Juice Generation's Eric Helms to create the Cooler Cleanse, a three- or five-day detox diet consisting of pressed raw juices. Find out if detox diets are truly an effective way to lose weight fast.

Celeb Detox Diet #2: Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow frequently touts the benefits of detox diets on her website, GOOP, and swears by Dr. Alejandro Junger's Clean program. The 21-day cleanse diet consists of a shake for breakfast, lunch from a list of approved foods and a shake for dinner. Junger also offers a mini three-day cleanse and an elimination diet for those not ready for a full-blown cleanse.

Celeb Detox Diet #3: Beyonce
Beyonce turned to the Master Cleanse Diet to help her drop a reported 20 pounds in less than two weeks for her role in the movie Dreamgirls. The Master Cleanse is one of the most extreme detox diets. Followers subsist on a liquid diet of hot water, lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper for 10 days. But is it the best way to lose? Get the facts.
