3. Water, Gwyneth Paltrow
It may pass many of us by, but water is, as Gwyneth Paltrow recently tweeted, "Full of healing power". Not only is it hydrating, water keeps the skin looking young, helps weight loss by aiding the metabolism and boosts energy levels. Nutritionists recommend about eight glasses of water a day.

4. Bee pollen, Victoria
Another tip from super slender Victoria Beckham: "Totally obsessed with this Bee pollen! so goodfor u!! X vb".

It's easy to see why Victoria is a fan – bee pollen contains about 22 amino acids, 18 vitamins, 25 minerals, is extremely rich in carotenes and is high in B complex vitamins and Lecithin. 

5. Tuscan kale, Nigella Lawson
And if you have over indulged and you need a health kick, celebrity chef Nigella Lawson has the answer for a healthy dinner. "After a week of everything fried, cavolo nero (Tuscan kale), lemony asparagus and curried carrot and sweet potato soup," she tweeted alongside a picture of the healthy meal.

Known as a superfood for a reason, just a cup of kale provides more than 100 percent of the daily value of vitamins K and A, and 88 percent of the daily intake for vitamin C. Throw that in with nutrient-packed asparagus and carrots and you're in for a healthy, goodness-filled dinner.
