Demi claims that she only lasted 4 days on the popular maple syrup, cayenne pepper, and lemon (yuck) diet drink, known as the 10-day Master Cleanse.
We don't blame Demi Moore. We would not have lasted, either.
If you look at the photo, you can see that Demi doesn't need to lose any major poundage. Here she is on the May 2010 cover of Elle Magazine(United Kingdom). She appears as youthful and slender as ever.
At the moment, according to Demi's tweets on Twitter, the actress is on a new cleanse-detox diet. And this one lets you eat real food. It's called the 21 Day Clean Program:
'2day’s day 13 4me on The Clean Program!' Demi tweeted on Tuesday.
Gwyneth Paltrow is a big fan of cleanse-detox diets, having blogged about going on a few to drop pounds and restore her digestive system.
The Clean Program was developed by a cardiologist, Dr. Alejandro Junger. And the dietary program looks sensible to us----consisting of a shake for breakfast and dinner, and a lunch that combines one vegetable, one grain and one protein.
If you would like to diet like Demi, and get 'your clean on,' it's available for $350. According to the Clean Program website, it's a 3-week diet-detox.
"The Clean Program is a 21 day detox program that is specifically designed for the person on the move. Unlike traditional cleanses, you need not stay at home while you detox on the Clean Program. This cleanse is designed for those who want to live their life and still get Clean.".

Talk about getting a leg up.....The woman looks incredible as she makes her unforgettable entrance in a black, dramatic, Versace chiffon gown to the Salt premiere Tuesday in Tokyo.
The busy mom of six cutie-pies, has been making a world tour of her action-thriller flick Salt. She sure has. by reportedly earning $20 million for this movie.
We brought you a few of Angelina's diet and fitness tips here at Beauty Tip Today in an article last Saturday.
Now, let's take a closer look at the glamour of 35-year-old Angelina Jolie. Let's be honest....this is one hot Versace gown. It's a backless beauty. A few days ago, the sexy star wore black leather. Angelina's style is modern and edgy.
The British press has had a field day with Angelina's 'vein-bulging Madonna arms'. Big deal! The actress had a grueling training program for her cinematic role as Evelyn Salt, a CIA agent on the run. She performed most of her stunts. We are happy to see that she is in such amazing shape. Angelina Jolie still looks flawless. No one is 100% perfect.
We like Angelina's makeup and trademark cat-eyes. Her look is always dewy and natural.
Here are some of the products her makeup artists have used to create her global appeal:
1. Lancome Le Crayon Kohl in Black Ebony (for lining eyes with definition and creating sexy cat-eyes)
2. Lancome Oscillation Mascara (for long, lush black lashes)
3. Shu Uemura Blush in M Pink 31 (for softness, a warm pink color)
4. Lancome Juicy Tubes in Spring Fling (for beautifully shiny lips with a hint of color)

So, then, is there a problem with the department store now selling maternity clothes? Will teens who frequent Forever 21 be 'inspired' to get pregnant to buy some cute maternity clothes?!
Well, some people feel that way, including the YMCA in San Jose, California, whose city is one of the 5 selected Forever 21 store locations where the maternity line is being launched. By the way, San Jose, just happens to have one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the country.
One of the 'Y' staffers claims young girls should not be exposed to maternity clothes at their favorite teen stores.The staffer says that launching the line in the highest rate states, "could not be unintentional, especially since the line is opening next week in Nevada, another state that ranks high in teen pregnancy."
So, there you have it. Is it clever marketing? Or just plain dopey by the folks at Forever 21?!
"Forever 21 did not create, design or distribute Love 21 Maternity to target or appeal specifically to pregnant teens. Any relationship between teen pregnancy rates and the locations of our stores is unintentional," the clothing company stated in a press release.
Hmmm. We think Forever 21 knew exactly which of their stores to offer the new maternity line. However, you can also find the new line right at your fingertips here.
The new Forever 21 maternity line has some cute and affordable pieces. And we are sure, that a lot of pregnant women over 21 will be wearing the clothing, too.

Well, why not? Plenty of beloved celebrities have their signature fragrance, and some in multiples. Mariah. Sarah Jessica Parker. Beyonce. Britney Spears. Halle Berry. Jennifer Lopez. And the list goes on.
Next Wednesday, you will see the pretty actress in London at Harrod's dept. store exclusively launching her new perfume, called Lolavie, which we are told, means, 'Laughing at life,' in French.
And laughing all the way to the bank. You, go, Jennifer Aniston!
Lolavie by Jennifer Aniston has been described by some as, 'a gentle floral.'. And this is how the Friends star explains the scent to Women's Wear Daily:
"I want people to go, ‘What is that? You smell great!’ But most of all, I wanted it to smell natural."
Actually, here's what's in Lolavie: A floral fragrance which includes rose, wild violet and Amazon lily, dries down to a woody aroma of musk, golden amber and sandalwood.
Jennifer Aniston went on to explain, that the entire fragrance development was more than just attaching her name to the label:
"It's been a year-and-a-half journey," she says. "I'd been asked to do things before, and it never felt organic. But when Leon [Falic, the president of Falic Fashion Group] approached me to be involved with the process from inception to fruition, I thought, 'This could be a creative expression.' And it's turned out to be an extension of myself as opposed to slapping my name on something."
We're told that a bottle of Lolavie by Jennifer Aniston will start at $47.
Interesting how the premiere of Lolavie coincides with the new Angelina Jolie movie premiere, Salt.

If you can afford it, waxing is the best way to remove unwanted hair on the body and even a stray hair or two on the face. You really get smooth skin instantly. And those bothersome, little hairs, take longer to grow back again.But most of us shave with a razor. It's the cheapest way to get rid of body hair.
But you can also slow-wwww down hair growth with a unique beauty product called Completely Smooth for Body ($42, at completelybare.com.
So, what does Completely Smooth do??
It's what you call, a hair inhibitor. Aha! The formula includes the plant extract Capi-slow, and does exactly what the name says. The moisturizer slow-wwwws down hair growth between waxing, shaving, or laser hair removal treatments.
According to the website, Completely Smooth for Body is quite effective:
"It is clinically proven to visibly diminish hair texture by up to 55%, density by up to 50% and length by up to 30%. Apply the formula, twice a day, over the areas where you would like to reduce the growth of hair and watch as hair comes in finer and smoother".
Completely Bare sells a bunch of smooth, bare skin products.
Show your bikini body some love. With this darn heat wave going on and on, bare skin is definitely in.

Did you know that the most popular bra size here in the U.S. is a 36C?! Hmmm, well, we certainly got robbed.
We've always wondered, exactly how many bras does a gal need?. We'll get to that one, in a moment.
First, we already know that a nude or skin-tone bra is a life-saver, because it can almost disappear under even a slightly sheer white top. But then again, no two complexions are the same. So, how do you find the perfect nude bra?
Right here. It's called, My Skins bras. And these bras come in 20 different flesh tone shades. Simply, hold the My Skins special cut-out color card against the middle of your bosom, and select the closest hue.
As far as buying bras, the experts suggest, that at the least, a woman should own 3-5 everyday bras. That's what fit expert for Vanity Fair, Tiffany Aschenbrenner says. You also need a high-impact sports bra and a convertible strapless number for special occasions, she adds.
The smart thing to do, is rotate the bras
When it comes to caring for bras, we've been told that hand-washing is better than machine-washing.
And the best stuff to wash your bras with? Don't laugh. We heard from another expert, that a mild shampoo is great for cleaning bras.

Need a little more bling? Jennifer Lopez is always wearing some. And why not? Her fave makeup artist, Scott Barnes, created a super bronzing lotion called Body Bling ($38, scottbarnes.com).
This little bronzer can give you flawless, glowing legs with a quick smooth application. And Scott Barnes is big on bronzers. He also makes some great ones for the face, as well.
The experts suggest always applying these bronzers or natural 'tanners' in a circular motion to prevent streaking. Great advice.
Next, we have one of our go-to-beauty products for long, lean legs. It's Sally Hansen's Airbrush Legs ($13.99, at drugstores).
We like to think of Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs as spray-on pantyhose. It comes in 4 blendable shades: light glow. medium glow. tan glow. deep glow.
The spray won't cover imperfections like spider veins completely, but the beauty product does minimize bothersome leg issues. Plus the formula is water-resistant, weightless, and moisturizing with Vitamin K.
We have used the spray in medium glow. It gives a lovely sheen with a nice shade of a light tan. The color is pretty. It isn't an orange streaky hue.

You've probably heard about this popular and inexpensive skin serum for quite some time now. The beauty product has been designed for improving the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone, aging and dry skin.
The Bio-Oil company boasts about its special formula, which includes PurCellin Oil. This ingredient is related to the oil from a duck's gland. No kidding. PurCellin Oil supposedly helps targeted absorption into the skin. Oil from a duck's gland?!! Is this a bunch of baloney? Or has Bio-Oil really tapped into the fountain of youth?!
According to the Bio-Oil people, this is how the duck oil figures into the beauty formulation:
PurCellin Oil is a recreation of the preen gland oil of ducks. "During preening, a duck secretes oil from its preen gland and distributes it over its entire plumage in the familiar twisted-neck action that one often associates with ducks. This oil creates a thin, non-greasy layer on the surface of the feathers without which water would not pearl off and the bird would struggle to swim. This ingredient acts as a delivery system for Bio-Oil's other ingredients, improving spreadability and allowing for targeted absorption into the skin."
Bio-Oil is supposed to work wonders on stretch marks, and the testimonials we have read, indicate, that the stuff lessens the purple/red marks and softens their overall appearance.
The product is quite inexpensive at just $11.99 for a 2 fl. oz. bottle that goes a long way. And it's available at your neighborhood drugstore.
Check out fans of the product here.

KR: I was the same way about exercise. I didn't do it in my 20s and I was like, it's too late to start now. I figured, I work in an industry where there's a stylist and a makeup artist -- they'll make me look fine. But I began feeling tired -- just playing in the park with my kids wore me down. I thought, "Geez, I'm kind of young to be feeling this way." So I started walking on a treadmill. Then I started jogging on a treadmill. Then I began jogging outside. Now I'm running outside, three to five miles, and taking toning classes.
At what point did you notice changes in how your body looked?
KR: A month or two after I started working out, I wore a sleeveless turtleneck to work. Regis was like, "Ripa, your arm muscles look incredible!" It was the first time anybody had ever said anything to me about my muscles. And because I am a vain person, that's all I needed to hear to stay with it."

Wendy's has not yet provided the caloric information on these new salads at their website. We could only find the stats for their previous Garden Sensations line.
But we really approve of the size and depth of these new salads. These are not side dishes, but full meals. And we give salads the thumbs up, because you can watch calories, but still enjoy a delicious meal.
And sure, you can probably make a much better salad entree at home, but for a quick, fast-food meal on-the-go, you shouldn't overlook Wendy's new salad line.
