As the author of a clean eating cookbook, you may never have guessed there was a time when Tia Mowry struggled with keeping a healthy lifestyle.
Opening up in her new book Whole New You: How Real Food Transforms Your Life, for a Healthier, More Gorgeous You released on Tuesday, the actress and cooking show host revealed her past with diet pills.
In one excerpt published by People, Tia recalled her diet of junk food on the set of Sister, Sister with her twin Tamera Mowry.

Farrah Abraham is going from bikini model to spokesmodel! (She made a stopover in adult model, but seems to have skipped over role model entirely…)
The (Backdoor) Teen Mom star may have claimed porn was her only avenue for supporting her child, but it seems her work with James Deen has opened up more possibilities.
Farrah is now endorsing Raspberry Tones, a new "diet and fat-loss" pill. A representative for the company says:

We previously mentioned that Kirstie Alley is coming under fire (and lawsuit) over her diet products.
A woman is suing her, claiming that Kirstie lost all her weight during grueling practices while on DWTS, not because of her diet supplements.
The National Enquirer went out and got a container of her Rescue Me organic weight loss supplement and took it to two doctors.

Bubba Smith, best known for his roles in the Police Academy movies when he wasn't being awesome in the NFL, recently passed away and we're finding out now it was due to an overdose of diet pills.
The exact phrasing was "acute phentermine intoxication" and probably made his heart disease and hypertension worse.
He'll be missed, and hopefully something good can come from this — a warning to all those out there taking diet pills not to overdo it, or really, do it at all!

Not all celeb diets are created equal!!
Some aren’t even really diets (sorry, but diet pills don’t count).
Fitperez nutritionist Lisa DeFazio lays down the law on celeb diets. Most that law is, “don’t try this diet.”

You may have seen a weight-loss product called HCG being advertised all over the Internet. Hopefully, you didn’t buy it, because the FDA just announced that it’s fraudulent and illegal.
The pills are sold online, in drugstores, and in GNCs and are supposed to help people not feel hungry even when consuming very few calories — thereby helping them lose weight.
“There is no evidence the oral over-the-counter products are effective for weight loss,” says Elizabeth Miller, FDA's leader for the Internet and health fraud team. “While they may not be dangerous, they're at least ‘economic fraud’.”
There are better ways to lose weight than diet pills! Start exercising and eating right before you throw any pseudo-science into the mix!!
