When watching E! and flipping through gossip magazines, it’s hard not to wonder how stars manage to look so good. OK, maybe it has something to do with a personal trainer and that it is technically part of their job to stay in shape, but it could also be due to some of the ridiculous and slightly bizarre diets that find their way into Hollywood kitchens.

These fads tend to be short-lived, though some have more longevity than others. The frozen yogurt diet, for one, seemed to pop in and out, though it’s still left its mark with the excess of fro-yo shops opening in cities like New York and Los Angeles. Others, like the Rainbow Diet, are based on good intentions of incorporating more fruits and vegetables into daily diets, but somehow get lost amid the Hollywood desire for immediate weight loss and teeny, tiny bodies and usually passed over for diets that promise quick results.[slideshow:

Stars like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston, and Reese Witherspoon have turned to these supposed miracle weight-loss diets to help thin themselves out. So we decided to round up some of the trendy and popular diets that have hit Hollywood and see what they're all about. Though we haven't tried any ourselves, let us know if you have (and if they work!).
