1 baked potato a day. Celery Loaf. Diet Coke and…quail?

As detailed in her book, I’ll Have What She’s Having, author Rebecca Harrington undertakes a perilous journey in the name of journalism: surviving on wacky celebrity diets, including those of Beyoncé, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marilyn Monroe and Karl Lagerfeld.

She tackles the 14 different regimens, battling acne and fainting spells, but she soldiers on and her recap of the whole experience will have readers laughing so hard, they’ll develop six-packs*.

(*Umm, we can’t promise this.)
