Chrissy Teigen, The Rock, And 12 Other Celebs Share Their Eating Habits

by Angela Andaloro

While most of us know we could probably treat our bodies better, sometimes life gets in the way. As much as you’d like to cook a fresh, organic dinner every night, when you take into account kids, social calendars, and everything else life can throw at you without warning, the idea kind of loses its luster. Sometimes we slip up and eat fast food one too many days in a row, or inhale a bag of chips instead of thoughtfully chewing on a piece of celery. We chalk those slip-ups up to being busy — but what about celebrities? They’re always on the go, and somehow look fabulous doing it without fail.

Of course, celebrities have the added benefit of a team of trainers and nutritionists working around the clock to keep them looking fabulous. Whether it’s a diet recommended by a professional or a regimen of their own creation, we’ve taken a  look at the diets of 14 different celebrities — and it’s pretty fascinating.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

Saying that The Rock’s body is impressive is… an understatement. Men around the world have long wondered what it takes to get into that kind of shape. The Rock says of his eating habits, according to ExpressUK, “I wake up and have a little bit of caffeine. An hour later I have breakfast, which consists of 10-12 oz of potatoes, 8-10 oz of grilled sirloin steak and 4-6 scrambled egg whites.” That’s a lot of protein.

P. Diddy

Diddy has mentioned his affinity for applesauce on both Jimmy Kimmel Live and Watch What Happens Live, but the business mogul made it Instagram official with this picture of apple pie in 2015. “#DiddyFacts I love apple pie! I eat applesauce with every meal. LOL I also never had a birthday cake because all I wanted was an apple pie. Just a little Diddy trivia.” How about ‘dem apples?

Rita Ora

Rita Ora’s been a busy lady! Both her acting and singing careers have picked up considerably in the last few years. She says that she finds consistency important because she simply doesn’t have time to think up alternatives. She tells People, “I always have egg whites with salmon every morning without fail, I don’t eat anything else. Or I have like boiled eggs with salmon. I always have a bit of protein and I don’t have normal scrambled eggs, I do egg whites.”

Kylie Jenner

On an episode of Life of Kylie, Kylie fessed up to her love for shrimp tacos. “I eat shrimp tacos every day. I actually learned this recipe from Karrueche Tran. We did it on my app. She taught me, and I kind of just fell in love. The tacos, the guac, the onions, the shrimp, the shell. The juiciness drips down your lips. Mmm, shrimp.” We love tacos, too. Celebs, they’re just like us!

Victoria Beckham

Fashion designer and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is used to people talking about her weight. She’s very open about her journey to learning how to treat her body well. In a 2016 interview with Net-a-Porter, she says this of her diet: “I see a dermatologist in LA, called Dr. Harold Lancer, who is incredible. I’ve known him for years — he sorted my skin out. I used to have really problematic skin and he said to me, ‘You have to eat salmon every single day.’ I said, ‘Really, every day?’ And he said, ‘Yes; breakfast, lunch or dinner, you have to eat it every single day.’” Salmon seems to be a common theme here.

Chrissy Teigen

It’s no surprise that Instagram goddess/cookbook author Chrissy Teigen has some hard-and-fast rules for fueling her body. For her, eggs are a necessity. In a 2013 interview with Shape, she revealed eggs are a staple in her everyday eating, “I have to have breakfast, and breakfast has to be eggs, whether in omelet form, hard-boiled, or over-easy.”

Ina Garten

Don’t let this lux Parisian breakfast Ina Garten recently posted fool you. When it comes to the first meal of the day, the Barefoot Contessa keeps it simple, according to her interview with Bon Appétit. “I have the same thing for breakfast every single day, 365 days a year: McCann’s Irish oatmeal. It’s actually quick-cooking, and I do it in the microwave with milk and salt. Most people don’t do their oatmeal with salt, and I think that without it, it just tastes like wallpaper paste. With salt, I think it’s delicious. And if it’s my birthday I’ll put maple syrup in it — but only on my birthday.” Girl, treat yo’self.

Christina Aguilera

Christina’s closet isn’t the only place you’ll find monochromatic color schemes. The star is believed to adhere to the 7-Day Color Diet, a diet plan that has you eat foods of a different color each day to try and diversify what you put on your plate. It’s an interesting approach to getting your fruits and veggies in and seems to work great for the star. Color us intrigued.

Mariah Carey

Mariah has a surprisingly short grocery list. While promoting her docu-series Mariah’s Worldshe told E! News she really only eats two things. “It’s really hard. My diet, you would hate it. All you eat is Norwegian salmon and capers every day. That’s it.” Fun fact: One of our writers tried it.

Ayesha and Stephen Curry

You can imagine that game-day meals are very important in the Curry household. Ayesha keeps it pretty simple when it comes to whipping up something to give the Golden State Warriors’ champ the fuel he needs. While promoting her cookbook The Seasoned Life, she told Bon Appétit “We have pasta, and I make the same sauce every time. The recipe for the sauce is in the book. We’ll switch out the protein sometimes — ground chicken, ground turkey, ground beef, sometimes straight-up vegetarian — but, for Stephen, it’s all about the carbs. It’s just getting that pasta in.” Now this is a diet we can get behind.

Beyoncé

Beyoncé

Beyoncé’s discography isn’t the only place you’ll find lemonade. The Lemonade Diet, aka the Master Cleanse, has been linked to the icon time and again over the years. It was reportedly the diet she used to lose weight after giving birth to Blue Ivy in 2012. If life gives you lemons — well, you get it.

Hilary Duff

Hilary Duff

This actress seems pretty consistent when it comes to the foods she looks to for a boost! In 2016, her morning routine was featured on Well+Good, where she said this of her regimen, “I drink a scoop of Super Greens that I put into water or juice. It smells super gross, but when I’m working and I know I’m not getting enough vegetables, it gives me all the nutrients I might be missing. I’ve also been really into apple cider vinegar — I’ll just shoot it straight in the morning. People think it’s gross, but I kind of like the taste.” This shot of her enjoying her Super Greens in January shows it’s still working for her! She makes it look pretty easy being green.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth dished on her diet on a recent goop podcast. It’s no surprise that the actress, who has focused on her health and lifestyle empire in recent years, runs a pretty tight ship. “On a normal day, I’ll have a smoothie for breakfast. I have a pretty healthy lunch, with some protein and salad. And for dinner, I have whatever I want, but I do try to avoid highly processed foods and high-fructose corn syrup.” And that’s the goop scoop.

Julianne Hough

You might think it takes a very strict diet to keep in dancing shape, but Julianne’s diet actually allows for a surprising amount of flexibility. The star works out and eats clean five days a week and allows herself a cheat day to enjoy her vice, Italian food. For breakfast, she throws together a green juice from whatever’s in her fridge. She tells Elle, “I usually like it a little sweeter, less bitter, so I put in a green apple, some spinach, kale. Again, if I want it sweeter, I’ll put some carrots in. But I love ginger, and lemon too, so I’ll put that in. Cucumber, celery, anything green, really. Sometimes I’ll add beets too, depending on my mood. And then I’ll go work out, it just depends.”

Although staying healthy and eating right isn’t easy for everyone, it’s a relief to see that many celebrities just stick to a few simple rules to stay healthy and in shape. It looks like lots of greens and eggs on the menu! Whatever you decide to do to get healthy or in shape, remember that nothing happens overnight. By sticking to a routine, you’ll see gradual progress and be on the way to a better you.
