We love an inside look into the daily lives of our favourite celebrities, especially when it comes to comparing the food on our plates to their food on their Instagrams. We've rounded up the most interesting celebrity diets - there's a few surprises in there!
Ever wondered what your favourite celebrity eats all day, every day?
Don’t worry – we have too, and it’s perfectly normal to wonder about
those celebrity diets, not to mention totally fascinating!
celeb diet is a topic that magazines love to cover, with so many
interviews asking what a typical day in their food-life looks like.
We’ve summed up everything in bite-sized packages so you can peek inside
their food diaries.
We’re always a little bit obsessed by what
celebs eat, and while some eat pretty much the same stuff that we do,
others are a little more alternative with their choices of grub. Whether
it’s a weight-loss fad diet, a homemade family dinner, or a night of
luxury wining and dining, you can guarantee that our favourite
celebrities will be snapping a pic for Instagram or broadcasting it on
Snapchat for all their followers to see.
With so many dieting
trends telling us what we should be munching on and what we should be
hurling far, far away from our bodies, it’s refreshing to see that not
everyone sticks to these all the time! A few of our favourite celebs
have said that while they try to be gluten-free, dairy-free, or
whatever-free as much as possible, they love their treats and try to
combine healthy options with indulgent bits here and there.
many celebrities are admired for their slender frames, intensive workout
programs and pricey detox treatments, but it’s a relief to see some who
stay in shape just by picking whole-food goodness instead of putting
their bodies through hell.
While some of their daily menus seem a
tad overboard for us to include in our lifestyle (we’re looking at you,
Madonna!), we can’t deny that it’s inspiring to see that most of them
have meal plans that we so could get on board with.

Our beloved Mary spoke to Good Housekeeping about how she stays so trim, despite having to taste 36 cakes a day during Bake Off filming!
‘I have soup at lunchtime and I know exactly how many calories are in that soup. I don?t have bread with it, but I might have a salad if it?s very hot,’ she said.
‘I?ll have a couple of starters if I am in a hotel in the evening. That?s it. Otherwise I will put on weight because I am having to taste 36 cakes a day. It?s my job.
‘Freak diets, I don?t think work. It?s control. Have a smaller plate. I have mountains of vegetables – green vegetables, broccoli, beans. I have twice as much as my husband does.’
Emma has told the Express that she eats a healthy diet and tries to go gluten-free as much as she can, as she feels her body functions better without it. However, she does like a treat now and then like this gorgeous toad-in-the-hole!
She likes to snack on things like Danish pastries, scones and cake, and eats chocolate most nights. She also has a thing for Nando’s – don’t we all!
A few times a year, she’ll do a five-day juice cleanse, cutting out tea, coffee, caffeine and sugar.
Kim has stated all over her social media that she wants to get back to her pre-baby body, so she’s been following the Atkins diet.
Only consuming 1,800 calories a day, she often starts her morning with an egg omelette with cheese and vegetables. Lunch is a grilled lime chicken over squash or a spinach salad with feta, and dinner is often courgette noodles with spicy chicken sausage. Snacks include fruit and nut bars, hummus with veggies or Greek yoghurt with berries.
Now, her diet has relaxed a little bit, and she can eat small portions of brown rice, quinoa and potatoes. Because she was breastfeeding, she was strictly off the alcohol – but now that she’d stopped, she only drinks white wine and vodka as they have the lowest amount of carbs.
Cat often starts her day with hot water and lemon to neutralise her stomach acid, then has coffee and a grapefruit for breakfast, as she revealed in an interview with The Telegraph.
Depending on the day, she’ll have different options for lunch, such as protein like fish with a salad.
Her favourites for dinner include a big caprese salad or her homemade lemon and thyme roast chicken.
Princess Kate is said, according to Celebrity Health And Fitness, to mostly eat fresh fruit and vegetables, lean meat, and lots of smoothies and juices!
It’s said that her favourite smoothie is berry puree with almond milk to curb any sugar cravings. She sometimes, apparently, indulges in dark chocolate and gummy sweets!
Victoria’s got a busy household and is constantly on the go with her business, so she rarely has time to cook! In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she said that her morning starts with some fruit, peppermint tea and a double espresso.
Lunch is sushi ordered to her office, green juice, sparkling water and more peppermint tea. She and her family like to go out to dinner, so they choose between Italian, French or Nobu Japanese depending on what they fancy!
In an interview with the Express, Cheryl revealed that she tries to stay healthy but doesn’t deny herself any treats! Although she doesn’t eat pasta before a red carpet to avoid bloating, and sometimes cuts out alcohol, she eats the food that she enjoys and maintains her figure by working out a lot.
In the interview, she tucked into a tomato and mozzarella salad, swapped her order of sea bream for a juicy steak, and finished it off with a chocolate and caramel dessert.
Cheryl also posts snaps of what she makes at home, and has expressed her love for a good old Sunday roast!
In an interview with Larry King, Madonna revealed that she follows a strict macrobiotic diet that bans wheat, eggs, meat and dairy, and focuses on sea vegetables. The diet originates from Japan, and she once told Japanese journalists that she has her own personal Japanese chef who follows her everywhere!
She eats things like miso soup for breakfast, soy meat and rice pasta for lunch, barley stew, fish and seaweed for dinner.
Sometimes she allows herself to indulge a little, nibbling on strawberry jam on toast and cookies every so often!
Davina dramatically changed her diet by cutting out refined sugar completely, and even wrote her own health book titled Davina’s Smart Carbs.
Speaking to the Daily Star, she said that she loves hearty soups and salads full vegetables and pulses for main meals, and can be caught snacking on homemade popcorn instead of crisps.
She’s also made a few food switches to help stick to her diet, such as switching sugary white bread for wholemeal, and cooking sweet potato fries instead of chips.
Caroline has seriously wowed us with her body transformation, and a lot of it has been down to her diet! She revealed to Fitness magazine that her breakfast is usually scrambled or poached eggs, bacon, avocado, mushrooms and sometimes steak!
Her favourite snack is dark chocolate with sea salt, but she’s been cutting out excess sugar, so no more bread, sauces and yogurts. Every so often, she temporarily cuts out alcohol, dairy and gluten to see how it affects her body.
Pippa told Hello magazine that she tries to eat wholegrain and energy-fuelled carbs as much as she can, and increases her portion sizes based on how much she’s working out. She loves brown rice, lentils, quinoa and sweet potatoes to fill her up.
Breakfast is either porridge or rye toast. A week before an event involves her cutting out alcohol, refined sugar and processed foods.
