Hollywood Diet

 By Mizpah Matus B.Hlth.Sc(Hons)

The Hollywood 48 hour miracle diet claims that you will lose 10 pounds in 48 hours.

This is a ‘fad’ diet and is not a sustainable weight loss technique.

Hollywood Diet Miracle Juice

It is essentially a juice fast. However juice fasts and tonics can be very beneficial to your overall health.

An essential part of the diet is the Hollywood diet ‘miracle’ juice – a scientifically formulated blend of vitamins, fruits, minerals, antioxidants and essential oils.

There are two formulas:

The 24 Hour Diet Juice

Hollywood Diet Plans

The purpose of the Hollywood Miracle Diet formulation is to detoxify and cleanse your system, and to assist in restoration of biochemical and mineral balance, which lasts for either 24 or 48 hours.

They say that dieters should lose up to 5 pounds in 24 hours or 10 pounds in 48 hours. They encourage dieters to get more from the Hollywood Diet by following their full 30 day program for a total of 30 Days.

The 30 Day Miracle Program

The 30 day Hollywood Diet begins with a 24 or 48 hour detox and then uses the juice as a meal replacement for a total of 30 days. The dieter is to follow the following Hollywood Diet instructions:

  1. Follow the Hollywood 24 or 48 Hour Miracle Diet for 1 or 2 days. Detoxify and rejuvenate your body while losing unnecessary pounds.
  2. Replace one meal a day with the Hollywood Daily Miracle Diet made from 16 fruits and vegetables. For best results, replace dinner meal with the Hollywood Daily Miracle Diet. Refrain from red meat, dairy, sugar, diet sodas, salty snacks, fatty foods and sweets.
  3. Take Hollywood Meta Miracle (ephedrine free) twice daily to turbo-charge your metabolism, increase energy, and control hunger. It is important to eat a healthy breakfast, sensible lunch and snack on raw vegetables and fresh fruit. Do not eat after 6 pm.
  4. Take Hollywood Mega Miracle 75 twice daily to provide your body with proper nutritional supplements. For best results, walk briskly for at least 30 minutes daily.
  5. Repeat the Hollywood 24 or 48 Hour Miracle Diet regularly, either every weekend or once a month. Your body will be thankful for the time off!

Hollywood Cookie Diet

The Hollywood Cookie Diet is easy to follow. Simply eat up to four cookies throughout the day and have a sensible 600-800 calorie dinner. This method is very effective for weight loss because it works on the principle of portion control and calorie restriction.

hollywood cookie dietEach cookie provides 140-150 calories, 3-4 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein. The dietary fiber they contain is said to act as a natural appetite suppressant. The cookies are available in different flavors including lemon, oatmeal raisin, cranberry orange and chocolate chip.

Certain foods that are high in fat, carbohydrates and calories are recommended to be avoided or limited as much as possible including bread and pasta made with white flour, butter, margarine, fast food, fried food, potato chips, soft drinks, sugar, white rice and processed foods.

Dieters are encouraged to weigh themselves once a week and to use other methods of assessing their progress such as taking body measurements with a tape measure or “before” and “after” pictures.

The Hollywood Cookie Diet book also includes tips for maintaining motivation and a selection of recipes.

The Hollywood Cookie Diet book retails at $5.99.

A box of 12 Hollywood Diet Cookies costs $19.99, which is enough for three days supply. Special offers are available if you buy at least 3 boxes of cookies at a time.

Is it Just Water Weight?

Like most rapid weight loss diets – it can be a loss of water and toxins rather than fat. If you are looking for a quick and easy answer to weight loss then this is not it. BUT, if you are looking for a good tonic, detoxifying, and cleansing routine then the Hollywood Diet Miracle Juice may be helpful.

Any weight loss is more of a side-effect. However, following the Hollywood Diet 30 day plan and the meal replacement eating plan could encourage more weight loss. We still think there are probably better, healthier ways to lose weight than the Hollywood Miracle Diet.

    this is gay dont do this.

  • Lee

    What’s the point of going on this diet, if it says we can’t lose weight. I mean the whole point of people going on this diet is to lose weight right? This product is obviously stating that it won’t help lose weight but to cleanse the body.

  • marge

    yeah taking advice from an idiot who uses gay as a synonym for stupid is smart.

  • racheal

    i think that it is gay because it will not really work.
    i think that no one should try it.
    you are paying for nothing.
    you need to go on a new diet.
    this is bull…

  • sydney

    you need this for people who are plain.

  • jack

    it’s basically just pineapple juice for 48 hours. save your money and go to the store and buy a few bottles of pineapple juice. One thing – stay close to home because your will shit like a whale on this diet.

  • brad

    i love this diet i have lost 40 lbs in a week

  • nell

    I’d call this more of a body cleanser. It’s basically fasting, but cleaning out your body at the same time, like water. As a diet, this sucks. But as a beverage that someone could drink while dieting, I think it’d be pretty good.

  • Carina

    Brad, no one believes you so shut up!
    I agree that this is a good cleanser and good start for a weight loss, followed by a low calorie diet with pleanty of excersize.

  • Nicole

    I tried this 2 times. It worked for me. I lost 4 lbs then the 2nd time 6 lbs. I also did exercise when doing this. I think its a good start if you want to start loosing weight. I wouldn’t suggest to drink this ocassionally. I don’t like the way it taste they did come out with other flavors. After doing the juice just do a diet plan and continue to exercise. It worked for me but may effect different people different ways.

  • david

    i read the recipe for this on another site and am going to try it and combine it with exercise and the drinking a plenty of water.

  • jill

  • amanda

  • yoatzin

    I have done this diet n it does work, with a combination of drinking water n exercising I lost 8 pounds. Its a good way to start a diet.

  • Mozzi

    I am starting this diet tomorrow I am starting at a weight of 69-70kg In two days I’ll let you know where I stand and if it works. I am making it myself though using the following

    Juice from 8 oranges
    Juice from 4 lemons
    4 Tablespoons of honey
    2 bananas, peeled and sliced
    2 apples peeled and sliced
    2 cups of grape juice

  • Mike

    This is mostly a diet for people that want to lose a quick 10 or so lbs fast…so essentially it works. I’ve used in ths past…I believe you drink 8 oz (4 oz water + 4 oz juice) every 4 hours. You do drop the weight, but after the 48 hours, it’s up to you to try & keep the weight off. Mostly likely, you’ll put it back on. This is probably more for people going to a reunion of such that want to squeeze in that dress or slacks for one night. Not a real diet.

  • belle

    i tryed this diet and it didn’t work. i gained all the weight back on after i finished the diet

  • David

    I am going to the marines and need to lose 10 pounds. The hollywood diet is perfect altough you are not lose fat you do lose that 10 pounds in water weight.

  • Kerry

    I tried this and replaced my breakfast with it and my lunch and had a light dinner and lost 5lbs in one week. As soon as I stopped using it I put the 5 back on, its not worth the hassle

  • elliott

    its so hard to lose weight for me
    im 6’3 129 pounds
    there is so many good things like food in the world evertime i see chocolate i have to eat it lol or cake haha
    i dont want to do this diet
    jsut eat like small meals 6-9 times a day and let your mtabolism do the work for you

  • Emma

    i think this diet is a joke it may work for some people but its useless if you want tp lose weight you need to exercise!!! and by drinking all those fluids it just adds water weight !!!

  • Mar

    I’m defenitly a yo-yo dieter and eat aloto on weekends. This is perfect for someone who does bad on the weekends and then wants to get back on track starting monday.

  • shariffa

    this diet works. my brother tried this diet and died the second day. his starting weight was 200 pounds and today im proud to say he has lost a total of 168 pounds and counting

  • Sasha

    I was lookin for a fad diet that was considered harmful for my nutrition class, and this diet is definetly one of them. Yes, it may help you detox, but it clearly says that you will not loose fat. Plus it does not contain Iron, and our bodies need Iron otherwise you will be a anemic.

  • Sa

    elliot… if you are 6’3 and only 129 pounds you really don’t need to be losing any weight at all. you are already at an unhealthy weight. i know obesity is a problem, but being underweight is also a problem

  • Anastasia

    O M G
    try the lemonade diet
    it worked like a charm
    don’t belive the diarrhea claime thats all
    fake. its actually the best diet I’ve ever done!

  • jordan

    the lemonade diet is not healthy and neither is this one! not eating is never healthy all this diet is, is starving yourself..

  • joel

    its hard to decide because all of you people are like pros and con’s lol to tell the truth about thois diet and other diets lol

  • Chanchan

    I have a suggestion for all of you..
    Try doing a cleanse where you eat…
    4 oranges a day
    10 oz or portien (any kind)
    Unlimited green veggies
    and a whole Lot of water..
    Dress your food with spices and No fat dressings..THATS IT

    I am a weight loss councilor, this will allow you to lose weight quickly but it won’t Drain your body of the Nutrients it needs to function. Do it for a week, You will see realllly fast results. and No weight gain back If you eat a healthy normal diet

  • shayla

    Who would actually believe that losing 10 lbs in two days could work, and if it did that’s so unhealthy.. the more you deprive your body of food by only drinking fruit the more your body will crave it, right? Why not take it slow and eat in moderation, like eight small, small snacks during the day and you’ll lose the weight. But this is Hollywood so it’s going to be bullshit. Hollywood wouldn’t survive in the real world so goodluck with their diet. You might end up in rehab..or the hospital like all these anorexic stars.

  • kris

    hey Chanchan where could i learn more about the cleanse diet you suggested

  • anonymus

    I have tried a liquid diet, and I lost 5 pounds in 2 days. I keptthe weight off because I did not go back to my old eating habits once I completed the diet. I just continued eating healthy (solid foods that is)and kept exercising. This fast is only good for a couple of days just to cleanse and jumpstart you on a diet, it’s up to you if you gain it back! So don’t criticize this diet. If you follow proper instructions, it will work and don’t eat up everything the following days because then you will have defeated the purpose of the diet.

  • sammy

    okay, I am thinking that people should exercise…not rely on a drink to lose weight.

  • Anonymous

    Good insight

  • Michelle

    I did the diet and in the first day i lost 4 pounds and 2 inches off my waist. To be honest to get the body you really want where a girdle with it and when you take it off you will love what you see. Also when you come off of the diet only eat 2 meals a day and your dinner meal should be the diet again and dont eat after 6pm by the end of the week you will have lost 20 pounds and i dont have a reason to lie hell their not paying me….lol

  • lauren

    im startin this diet today. need to lose the baby weight…… will let u all know how it went.

  • Angela

    This is really silly. Depriving your body of food is dangerous, think about it, if you’re not supposed to eat there would be no such thing as food! This must also make you terribly moody and if you lose weight this quickly you will put it on even quicker after you have finished this diet!

  • Ahnye

    Shockingly .. i tried this diet, and it works!
    i weighed myself at the doctors and found out that i’ve lost 8 pounds, it was amazing,, xD

  • Shane

    Hello Everyone,

    I’m starting this diet tomorrow, I will combine it with exercises and I will drink the 8 glasses of water. Keep tune!!
    –Talk to all of you tomorrow.

  • shelley

    the hollywood diet just about killed me . If you have low blood sugar don’t use this diet

  • britt

    no point to this. just eat healthy, don’t starve yourself. i used to wheigh 175 pounds in only 5 feet and 15 years old. i ate haelthy and walked every day for 4 months. I never ate past 7 and i only had junk food once a week. i lost all the whight and I am currently only 110. The point is just eat healthy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Steve L.

    does not work but the McDonalds diet does

  • No name

    I am using this to cleanse my body because of the holiday dinner and just to get back on track not as a permanent plan. I have been using Alli since february 09 and i have lost twenty pounds so far. I just started working out two week’s ago. Alli really works! Side effects are just some oil that come’s out with your stool normally. But if you eat more fat than the recommended amount per meal just make sure you take a Beano and dont have your good undie’s on that day Haha

  • DEE

    OK I TRIED THIS DIET FOR LIKE 2 DAYS.
    I STARTED AND BOTH DAYS I FAILED, BECAUSE I CAN’T FUNCTION CORRECTLY AT WORK SO ATE.
    IT WAS KINDA SCARY 🙁

    EVERYONE SHOULD WORKOUT AND WATCH WHAT THEY EAT
    BUT WE LIVE IN AMERICA AND IT’S PRETTY HARD TO DO JUST THAT.

    ILL TRY THIS DIET AGAIN WHEN I NEED TO WEAR A BAKINI ONE DAY HAHA

  • donna

    I tried this diet last monday and tuesday and lost 6lbs. Felt better than I have in a long time. I made my own drink from the recipe that Mozzi had and it tasted good. Have kept off the wieght and is starting again today-monday-. Walk one mile every day and eat moderiate on the days I am not doing the diet.

  • Iamrite

    This is just an updated variation of the Hollywood Diet. The original recipe calls for a lot of blow. Nice thing is that you can eat whatever but the trick is to do the blow first when you’re hungry, wait five minutes – then eat, if you feel like it. Wonderful, it works!

  • kokina

    i am going to try this diet to see if it works

  • ryan

    what heck this diet dosent work u cant function right and u get dizze

  • Noelle

    It gives you runs, HAHA but you lose weight, even though its just water you’re losing, on the scale it makes you feel good though you’re losing body fat

  • Noelle

    *ooops NOT losing body fat I mean, you’re losing water weight

  • Mandy

    I like this diet! It does work for a short term fix. If you are looking to lose weight permanently only giet an excercise will work. I use this to kick start my weight loss, start eating healthy, running and then use this for a detox . Since you lose weight it keeps you motivated. I lost about 7 pound on it. I’m 5’6 and now 123 instead of 130.

  • Oooju

    You can send it to Dubai

  • heather

    i think it might work but im not so sure yet… but i dont need to get a diet im reserching for heath class so peace out everyone!!!
