The paleo diet has recently become popular amongst celebrities and regular people alike, as it calls for a strict diet consisting of nothing but fruits, vegetables, animal protein, nuts and seeds. This diet is said to promote a more healthy lifestyle, as it cuts out all processed foods that are generally the cause of unhealthy diets. If the many health benefits aren’t enough to persuade you to trade in your Cheetos for carrots, then maybe the names of the many stars that have adopted a paleo lifestyle will.
1. Jessica Biel
Known for her hot bod and even hotter husband, Jessica is an avid follower of the paleo diet. In an interview with Crossfit Zone, Biel said, “It just leans you down and slims you up and takes that little layer of fat, skin, and water-weight right off your body.”
2. Jack Osbourne
After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2012, Jack turned to a paleo diet to lessen the symptoms of the disease. Switching his diet also resulted in a dramatic 70-pound weight loss for Osbourne.

Megan Fox made headlines when she rapidly dropped her 23 pounds of baby weight by following a paleo diet. She credits this lifestyle choice and her willpower to say no to carbs for allowing her to achieve the smokin’ body that she’s known for.
