How Hollywood Eats for the Oscars

A celebrity dietician reveals how stars fuel up for cinema's biggest night.

As awards season draws to a close, A-listers are putting the finishing touches on their Academy Awards-worthy appearance, from workouts to wardrobe to, of course, diet. 

And that often means making a call to nutritionist to the stars Haylie Pomroy, author of The Fast Metabolism Diet Cookbook, to whip them into red-carpet shape. Pomroy’s clients include Jennifer Lopez, LL Cool J, Reese Witherspoon—and a slew of pro athletes. She usually puts them on a stress-reducing clean eating plan seven days before a big event that’s loaded with anti-inflammatory fruits, whole grains and plant-based protein for sustained, calm energy. 

“My clients have fast metabolisms because they work very hard,” she says. “We created this strong foundation, so if they party like rock stars at the dessert bar or martini bar, they burn through it.”
