Do top food experts follow the strict advice they dole out to their famous clients? We asked five of them to keep detailed food diaries that included wine, cheese... and chocolate.

Height: 5'7"
Weight: 117 pounds

Fitness regimen: Aims to work out every day. Either bounces and dances on a mini trampoline for 45 minutes or cycles around Central Park for an hour.

M.O.: "Instead of being bogged down by your meal, you should be elevated by it. I don't use food mindlessly as a social pastime or something to do when I'm bored. It's spiritual, and truly part of a holistic lifestyle. I believe that we take our vitality predominantly from the air, sunlight, and clean water, so I don't take anything but this 'life force energy' until the sun goes down, then I enjoy nutrient-rich foods — along with others that are less so but that I enjoy anyway! Of course there are fun things to eat. But most people eat to escape their lives. A lot of us don't realize that we don't need to do things the normal way."

Core advice: "I don't recommend my diet to beginners. Start slowly with any diet or detox, and make sure you're eating tons of seasonal, fresh fruits and vegetables."
