From VIP treatment to box-office bank accounts, celebrities enjoy some amazing perks. But the fame and fortune do come with a downside—namely, an enormous pressure to stay slim.

Facial Analysis Diet. It's hard to believe that anyone would choose a diet based on her face. Although there's absolutely no science to back it up, the diet claims that open pores indicate that your diet's too acidic, while under eye puffiness means that your bowels aren't working as they should.
