"Hollywood vitamin drip craze"

I have read and seen a lot of things within the health and fitness world, but this has to be right up there in terms of craziness! Kelly Osbourne, Rihanna, Cara Delevingne and Ryan Philipe have all been 'patients' of this crazy health trend. It's pretty self explanatory really, its a 'health drip' - providing nutrients straight into your body.



While this may be convenient, I would never recommend this - not just because it would be very expensive, but also because drips are for when you are ill, not for everyday use. By doing this, you are more likely to neglect your diet, which if your vitamin intake dropped from food, but you increased it with this drip, then you will probably be at the same position as if you stuck to healthy eating. I don't know the above celebs's diets, I wouldn't think they are that bad, but there is such a thing as 'too much', even with vitamins. If you eat a healthy diet, getting a variety of nutrients, you don't need a drip, simple as. People who are in hospital that go on drips, need them because they are struggling - either with hydration or a lack in something, not because they think "oh, I fancy some water injected into my body, because, well....why not?"

Hollywood has come out with some crazy ttrends over the years, and this is no exception. Celebs do some crazy things to be healthy, and while they have the money to experiment with many different diets/training routines, their loyal fans (especially the crazy fanatic ones) do not have that kind of cash, but they will still try and copy them. I honestly wish there were more celebrities who were just healthy and fit by eating right and exercising regularly, instead of all these insane things they do.

I eat a very healthy diet, yes I have my cheat days every now and then, but most of the time my diet is very good. I also use supplements, and I do use a multivitamin - that is my 'boost', I don't need, nor want, a drip in my arm. Sometimes I do wonder what makes people do these crazy things, but I'm sure people will say "hey, that's Hollywood!". The only reason that this would be a good idea, was if someone was really, really sick, got admitted to hospital and found out that they are severely low in a number of vitamins.

If you have seen this latest trend, and are interested, just don't bother. Stick to eating a healthy and topping up with supplements. Don't waste your money and keep putting drips in your body. If these celebs think they don't have the time to eat during the day and maybe take a couple of supplements, then they are just crazy, plain and simple.
