Seven daily meal plans from seven iconic women
By Ea Francisco
Celebrity meal plans might seem hard and unachievable. Not everyone has a personal trainer or chef after all. Though we may not be able to completely recreate it, there’s still a lot to learn from these celebrity diets. There’s no harm in trying, so here’s a one-week meal plan inspired by some of our favorite celebrities.
Day 1: Natalie Portman
Try this meal plan inspired by Natalie Portman’s diet. This meal plan is actually a vegan-based diet, so no meat, eggs, dairy, and foods processed with animal products. A lot of people say that a vegan diet can help you lose weight and prevent certain diseases.
Breakfast: Scrambled tofu, whole wheat bread, cantaloupe
Snack: Soy yogurt, flaxseeds
Lunch: Black bean and sweet potato salad, grapefruit
Snack: Trail mix
Dinner: Cooked quinoa, grilled vegetables
Day 2: Kelly Osbourne
Kelly Osbourne said in her interview with Shape that she’s not really into those ‘diet foods,’ but she acknowledges that a change in diet is needed if she wanted to lose weight. So she started having breakfast and evening snacks and drank more water than soda. Here’s a sample of what she ate:
Breakfast: Raisin Bran with low-fat milk or two egg whites with low-fat cheese
Morning snack: Sliced cucumbers or dill pickles
Lunch: Grilled chicken salad with low-fat dressing or chopped salad with low-fat mozzarella and chickpeas

Day 3: Beyoncé
Beyoncé follows a 22-day vegan diet made by her trainer Marco Borges. Some people who have tried this diet ordered their meal plans online, but the Kitchn reveals what a one-day meal plan looks like:
Breakfast: Banana-walnut breakfast muffin
Lunch: White beans and greens salad
Dinner: Creamy elbow pasta with portobello mushroom
Day 4: Gigi Hadid
You’d think for a model that she’d be strict with what she eats, but that’s actually not the case. Gigi Hadid is all about eating clean but every now and then indulges in a burger. In an issue of Harper’s Bazaar, she revealed what she typically eats for a day.
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, and coffee or orange juice
Lunch: Arugula salad
Snack: Ice cream
