    Dishy diet secrets
    of the stars

    The book that blows the lid off those fabulous figures of the rich and famous! We've got their recipes for success!

    Jennifer Aniston
    The Skinny: The Zone Diet: 40% carbs, 30% protein, 30% fat.

    The Top Dish: Veal and Mushrooms with Vegetables and a Tomato Coulis
    (Serves 2)

    4 ounces veal
    1 1/2 teaspoons virgin olive oil
    4 ounces mushrooms
    4 spring onions, finely chopped
    2 tomatoes chopped, skinned and seeded
    3/4 cup vegetable stock
    1 bay leaf
    6 ounces spinach
    4 ounces cauliflower

    Cut the veal into strips and saute quickly in half the oil. Remove from pan, add the sliced mushrooms and cook until brown. Mix with the veal. Keep warm.

    Saute the spring onions with the remainder of the oil until soft. Add the tomatoes and cook until soft. Add the stock and bay leaf, and simmer gently for a few minutes to make a sauce. Remove bay leaf.

    Wilt the spinach and steam the cauliflower.

    Pour the sauce on the veal and mushrooms and serve with the spinach and cauliflower.

    The Goal! Wholesome but frisky silhouette.

    The "Carrot": Best twins in the business.

    Doability: Good for a lifetime, with time off for bad behavior.

    The X Factor: Only 30% fat? Goodbye frappuchino!


    Angelina Jolie
    The Skinny: High-carb, high-protein, low-fat. Five small meals a day. Lots of water.

    The Dish: Angie's typical day:

    2 ounces Shredded Wheat with 1 cup skimmed milk
    1 banana mashed and topped with 2 ounces strawberries
    1 Scotch pancake topped with 1 poached egg
    5 ounces grilled salmon, 2 ounces peas, watercress
    1 ounces muesli bar
    5 ounces orange juice
    4 ounces chicken breast cooked with lemon juice and sliced tomatoes
    4 ounces baked potatoes
    7 ounces rice pudding with 2 ounces fresh black currants

    The Goal! Lascivious figure. Lush but tough.

    The "Carrot": Those lips. That rack.

    Doability: Maybe for a week. Or two.

    The X Factor: What the hell are "Scotch" pancakes?


    Ashley Judd

    The Skinny: No fried chicken and hush puppies for this Southern gal. Instead, Judd uses fresh and dried herbs to spice up her low-fat dishes. The actress also sips hot water and lemon to "perk" her up.

    The Top Dish: Dill Dip

    2/3 cup vinaigrette dressing
    2/3 cup very low-fat creme fraiche
    1 tablespoon minced onion
    1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
    1 tablespoon dill seed or chopped dill leaves
    1 teaspoon salt

    Mix in the order given and serve with assorted vegetable sticks: carrot, celery, cucumber, cauliflower or peppers.

    The Goal! A buff, but lean-and-mean, athletic bod.

    The "Carrot": Everyone wants a slice of Judd's famously perky personality. Who knew her long-time secret was lemon and water?

    Doability: Herbs actually do (sort of) enliven low-fat fare, and on Judd's diet, you actually get to eat real food.

    The X Factor: No butter? No oil? No cheese? Kill us now.


    Catherine Zeta-Jones

    The skinny: The "Zorro" heroine dropped her baby weight with an intense, very low-carb dieting plan. She also drank only decaffeinated beverages and used only homemade mayonnaise.

    The dish: Typical menu:

    Breakfast: Smoked salmon with 1 ounce cream cheese on 12 slices of cucumber

    Lunch: Grilled steak with garlic
    2 ounces grilled tomatoes
    Green salad tossed with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice

    Dinner: Caesar salad (no croutons)
    Lightly griddled tuna steak with homemade mayo (pure olive oil, fresh eggs, no sugar)
    6 spears asparagus
    2 ounces broccoli

    The Goal! Delicious voluptuousness.

    The "Carrot": Hypnotic curves.

    Doability: Lunches of lamb cutlets sound great for a day or two, but only a swashbuckling heroine can resist sopping up the remaining juices with a slice of bread.

    The X Factor: No Hellman's? Hell no.


    Halle Berry

    Ever wonder why this kitty-cat is so rarely photographed in restaurants? That's because eating at home is one of the Oscar-winner's four rules for maintaining that flat stomach. Take control of your kitchen rather than trusting what they're serving at that hotspot around the corner.

    Another rule is no late-night snacking. Halle never eats after 7 p.m., which gives her a chance to burn off those dinner calories before bed.

    Those calories come from only healthier, natural sugars found in fruits and vegetables, instead of refined sugars. Last, fried foods have been kicked to the curb. Meow!


    Cameron Diaz

    The Skinny: Thanks to a high metabolism, Cameron wakes up to a hearty portion of chicken.

    The Top Dish: Chickenin a Parcel

    8 ounces lean chicken breast
    2 small tomatoes, sliced
    A squeeze of lemon juice
    A little fresh tarragon, chopped

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut a square of foil large enough to wrap loosely around the chicken and place the tomatoes in the middle of the foil. Put the chicken on top, season with lemon, tarragon and some salt and pepper, and wrap the foil around it. Scrunch the foil at the top so no steam will escape, place on a tray and bake for 20 min.

    The Goal! Svelte, yet feminine.

    The "Carrot": Those long, lean and totally taut arms.

    Doability: If you're blessed with high metabolism, this is easy. Still, last time we had a hangover, the last thing we wanted to do was wake and bake.

    The X Factor: Chicken for breakfast? Hey Cameron, ever hear of Cap'n Crunch?


    Sarah Michelle Gellar

    Meet Buffy the Sushi Slayer. To score her ass-kicking bod, the reigning scream queen rules by eliminating processed or fried foods as quickly as she once vanished vamps. Instead, raw fish and veggies and some rice and seaweed translate into raw energy.

    And forget caffeine. The blond starlet uses belly dancing and Tae Kwon Do for that extra boost.


    Drew Barrymore

    The Skinny: After flirting with pudginess her whole life, Barrymore slimmed down with a strict organic- vegan diet no meat, no dairy, no eggs.

    The Top Dish: Perfect Tomato Soup

    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 large onion, finely sliced
    2 large garlic cloves, crushed
    2 pounds ripe tomatoes, skinned and diced
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    A little sweetener
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the onion and garlic, and cook until soft but not brown. Add the tomatoes, cook for 10-15 minutes, then add the lemon juice, sweetener and 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil, then simmer gently for about 10 minutes. Puree, reheat if necessary, season and serve.

    The Goal! A pixie-ish look that still has dynamite curves.

    The "Carrot": Sexy alternative to the stick-thin anorexic look.

    Doability: This bare-bones diet doesn't allow for much more than salads and veg. That means grandma's meatloaf is out, but French fries (cooked in organic veggie oil, natch) are okay.

    The X Factor: Forget the grilled cheese with that tomato soup.
    Scariest Halloween mask ever > > >

    1) Scottish pancakes = oat cakes, I would presume. The same ones Kate Winslet eats?

    2) I thought Drew ditched the vegan thing, and started eating more protein. She said she stopped setting so many limits on herself or something to that effect.

    nope scotch pancakes are yummy they look just like american pancakes the ones you guys make in the pan and you get them in maccy d's breakfasts and taste near enough the same but theyre sweet. they come ready made in packets over here and you can eat them out the packet or toast them. Theyre called scotch pancakes over here cos they originate from Scotland.

    Aha! They do look tasty. Thanks for clearing that up. What are oat cakes, though, then?

    oat cakes are like erm....hard to describe. let me think...

    we have a brand of them over here called snack a jacks they have fook all fat in them they come in packets like crisps (chips) but theyre like in small disks all fluffy looking but crunchy made out of like fluffed up oats baked. you get them in boxes too like in the pic. the plain ones people put like cream cheese on them an stuff to eat as like a snack. im describing these soo bad sorry! they are crunchy, like a savoury snack favoured mostly by dieters cos of the fat content. i hope the pic clears it up a bit maybe??

    Not to be picky, but shouldn't these diet recipes be in the recipes thread in Food and Cuisine?

    Also, I find it weird that someone would eat VEAL to lose weight. Apart from the ethical issues of eating calves that are separated from their mothers far too young and forced to spend their short lives in stalls being force fed, I think it's far from the leanest cut of beef available.
