baby steps coffee

Take baby steps

Keep things slow and gradual," says Los Angeles certified nutritionist Ariane Resnick, author of The Bone Broth Miracle, who has cooked for Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. "Make one change that you can incorporate into your daily routine, and don't make a second one until the first feels natural. For example, if you're used to having two cups of coffee a day, switch to a cup of coffee and two cups of tea, then try one and one."

pack in veggies frittata

Pack it in

"Look for vehicles to deliver as many veggies as possible—whether it's a frittata, omelet or turkey chili," Miller says. "Complex carbs keep you full, as opposed to sugar, which makes you want to keep on eating."

protein chia

Go 50/50

"I encourage clients to eat equal parts healthy carbs and protein for breakfast," says David Silberkleit, who has worked as a private chef for Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. "One of my favorite dishes is chia porridge: Combine 2 cups almond milk, 1/4 cup chia seeds and a dash of maple syrup, and let it thicken overnight in the fridge. Chia has protein and healthy carbs, and it's high in fiber and low in saturated fat."

bulletproof smoothie

Mix it up

"Start the day with a Bulletproof version of whatever noncaloric drink you'd normally have in the morning, whether it's coffee or green tea, and turn it into a meal," Resnick says. She swears by the method, which calls for blending grass-fed butter and coconut or MCT oil into your drink. "It will cut your carb cravings and keep you full until lunch."

spice

Add some spice

"My new favorite blend: vadouvan," Silberkleit says. "It's a French derivative of curry, usually made with cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, fenugreek and mustard seeds. Put it in marinades to give fish and veggies an earthy taste."

Go ahead and indulge

"One of my favorite desserts is fresh berries with homemade whipped cream," Silberkleit says. "If you don't want to use a blender, buy some crème fraîche, add powdered sugar and a squeeze of lemon and whisk it up."

bellini summer cocktail

Get fruity

"For me, summer cocktails scream fresh fruit," says Nathaniel Neubauer, owner of Contemporary Catering in Los Angeles, who has catered parties for Bradley Cooper. "I love Bellinis (3 ounces prosecco sparkling wine and 2 ounces fresh white peach puree). A sprig of fresh lavender adds a pretty touch—and it's edible!"

avocado fat

Keep (some) fat

"When I was studying nutrition, I learned that if you increase your intake of good fat—avocado, for example—it will curb your craving for sugar," says James Barry, owner of the meal-delivery company Wholesome2Go, co-author of The Naked Foods Cookbook and former private chef of Mariska Hargitay. "You know what? It works!"

give in dinner

Don't beat yourself up

"Sometimes it's OK to give in to cravings," says Chris Irving, executive chef of The Gantry Restaurant & Bar in Sydney, Australia, and former private chef of Victoria and David Beckham. "Having lived in different parts of the world, I've found that the happiest and healthiest people are the ones who go out to dinner, have a few glasses of wine and don't feel guilty about it. It's not just about having a healthy body—it's also about having a healthy mind."

wacky clay diet

Wacky dieting

Best to skip these unusual eating plans.

Clay cleanse
Shailene Woodley recently touted this New Age--y detox, which involves mixing Bentonite clay (in powder form) with water, then downing it. The idea is that the clay has binding properties, glomming onto heavy metals and other toxins in your system and removing them when you poop. Sounds iffy—and it is.

Lunar diet
Followers of this plan, which is reportedly embraced by Demi Moore, believe that the gravitational pull of the moon affects the water in our bodies the same way it affects the tides. The short form of the diet is a day of fasting, drinking only water and juice during a full or new moon to remove toxins and water weight. Too bad the water poundage comes right back!

Facial analysis diet
Created by nutritionist Elizabeth Gibaud, this program uses your complexion to formulate an eating plan. Red cheeks could signal a dairy intolerance, while open pores may point to acid in your system. Kate Winslet is said to have lost weight with this diet. Most versions are low in calories, but the science behind the program is unclear.
