Actress/singer Bijou Phillips ends her vegan streak for low-carb

Something you probably won’t hear much about in the press is the fact that many Hollywood actors and actresses know if they need to lose weight in preparation for a role or after portraying a heavier character in a movie, their preferred method for doing so is by cutting the carbohydrates in their diet. It’s no secret that livin’ la vida low-carb is effective and the stars know this fact despite all the bellyaching about low-carb diets such as Atkins, Protein Power, and the like being a “fad.”

But it’s nice to attach a famous name to the promotion of low-carb diets because in the eyes of many that gives legitimacy to the plan so that others may decide to give it a try for themselves. Such is the case when actresses Jennifer Aniston and Gerri Halliwell as well as former President Bill Clinton and Vice-President Al Gore hailed this way of eating for how it helped them shed the pounds and Academy Award winner Halle Barre has used low-carb to manage her Type 1 diabetes for years.

Today I have a new famous name to add to the pro-low-carb camp: Bijou Phillips. The daughter of John Phillips from the 1960′s music group The Mamas and the Papas and half sister of actress Mackenzie Phillips (“One Day At A Time”) and singer Chynna Phillips (Wilson Phillips), Bijou is an actress and singer in her own right (she released a CD in 1999 and has made several appearances on both television and in movies including roles in the CBS-TV hit “CSI” as well as the movies “Almost Famous,” “Tart,” and “Bully”). Although she may not be as well known as her siblings, she’s definitely gonna make a name for herself to all of us who support the low-carb way of life after what I’m about to share with you.
