 Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian: Celebrity slimming diets and tips to avoid in 2020

Dietitians from the British Dietetic Association (BDA) have warned of the dangers of diets promoted by influencers. The association reviewed three diets and tips that it advises against because they are ineffective or even dangerous.

Vitamin injection

On Instagram, Chrissy Teigen appears with a smile on her face with a vitamin infusion on her arm. Infusions are very popular in the US and UK, and they can relieve a hangover, burn fat, strengthen the immune system or stop travel fatigue.

What is the expert opinion?

Marcela Fiuza, a BDA spokeswoman and dietitian, explains why this practice is so dangerous and unconscious: “Every time an IV is inserted, there is a risk of infection and the risk of phlebitis or blockage due to a clot.” With an excess of vitamins, you risk putting your health at risk, especially if you already have medical problems. For BDA, a healthy, balanced diet is sufficient to provide the human body with all the vitamins and minerals it needs.

Beyoncé's 22-Day Diet

Changing your eating habits in 22 days is the goal of Beyoncé's Miracle Diet. Thanks to a paid program ($99 per year), users discover a new plant-based diet. Within weeks, they will be vegetarians.

What is the expert opinion?

“If you have the skills and knowledge to prepare a vegan diet, you can do it yourself, without even spending money,” says Anna Daniels, another BDA spokeswoman and dietitian.

However, she sees a quality in this diet: "A vegetarian diet can be a good solution for some people to start eating better. However, it may take more than 22 days to change their eating habits and regain their good health."

Amethyst ice cream bottles

They are bottles with gems inside. The iron, minerals, and other properties in the stones are said to treat insomnia, mood swings and stress.

Expert opinion:

"There is no evidence of the benefits of crystals on water. Of course, you'll feel better, because you're better hydrated. Drink more water, but if I were you, I wouldn't waste my money buying a water bottle with crystals. Buy one in stainless steel that's reusable and help the environment," BDA spokeswoman Claire Pettit concluded.

To complement these recommendations, BDA President Carolyn Buffy noted that encouraging these practices does not help people feel better. "Nutritionists work with their patients to help them develop appropriate eating habits and promote their health. When it comes to nutrition, trust trained and regulated experts."
