What's one of the hottest diets in Hollywood? Celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak's "5 Factor Diet," according to Broadway World. Among the celebrities flocking to the food plan: Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Alicia Keys, Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried.
How it works:
- For five weeks, you'll eat five meals a day.
- Each meal contains five ingredients and takes five minutes to prep.
- You get five cheat days (one cheat day per week).
Each meal is balanced to include fiber, healthy fats, protein and foods that are low on the glycemic index (GI). You'll eat lots of vegetables and protein, with minimal amounts of refined carbohydrates such as cake and cookies.
Examples of foods on the "5 Factor Diet": Egg whites, fish, chicken, apples, broccoli, beans and lentils. And you can take it up a notch with "Harley's 5-Factor Workout" (click for details on this fitness DVD).
