Celebrity nutritionist Dr. Philip Goglia is responsible for shaping some of the world’s hottest bodies including Chris Hemsworth, Cara Delevingne, Kim and Khloé Kardashian.
When it comes to his clients, the goal is “to reduce inflammation and look as lean as you can–with a great deal of energy,” Goglia says in an interview with People.
Surprisingly, his tactics, while not easy by any means, are not totally impossible either. Below are four important tips from Goglia. Would you give them a try?
1. Cut out dairy.
NewBeauty cover star Khloé Kardashian told us that she lost 11 pounds in a month just by cutting out dairy. “Dairy is like eating moderately hard phlegm,” Galaga says. “It adversely affects digestion, it causes bloating and gas, it promotes inflammation, and it adversely affects oxygen utilization.”

2. Eat only one-ingredient starches.
When it comes to starches, Goglia advises his clients only to eat one-ingredient starches such as “potatoes, rice, oatmeal, oat flakes or oat puffs.”
Anything that’s a multiple-ingredient starch—for example, bread, bagels and muffins, which are yeast, mold and gulten-bound—are on the no-no list.
3. Eat proteins for dinner, not carbs.
During the evening, “there should be no energy source food,” says Goglia. “People don’t run a marathon after dinner. You don’t need a potato at dinner. You’re going to store it as fat, and then you’ll enflame.”
Instead, Goglia recommends a dinner of vegetables and protein, especially fish.
“Fish offers up a lot of anti-inflammatory benefits and fat-burning benefits when consumed at night, but it’s got to be a fatty fish like salmon, sea bass, black cod or Arctic char,” he says.
4. Drink a lot of water.
Specifically, Goglia recommends drinking half your body weight in ounces of water (“not sparkling water, not juice, not coffee”) daily.
Water is “responsible for moving nutrients and toxins through your system, and then more importantly as it relates to your physique, it regulates temperature. If your water is low and you can’t regulate temperature patterns, then your body will start to store fat underneath your skin to act as insulation to control your temperature,” he explains.
