Get Thin: The Uncle Karl Way

In 2001, Karl Lagerfeld, head designer and creative director for Chanel, decided to make a change. He decided to lose weight - and boy did he stick to it. He dropped a staggering 92 pounds in 13 months.

The inspiration? Karl said: "I suddenly wanted to dress differently, to wear clothes designed by Hedi Slimane. But these fashions, modelled by very, very slim boys - and not men my age - required me to lose at least 40 kg. It took me exactly thirteen months."

The Karl Lagerfeld Diet was created specially for Lagerfeld by Dr. Jean-Claude Houdret, a nutrional specialist. Together they compiled a plan that would work for the hectic lifestyle of an international, globe-trotting fashion mogul - and they later released this book so mere mortals could attempt his feat.

The diet is as such: the basic principles are simple and involve limiting calorie and fat intake, avoiding refined/ fried foods, and increasing the intake of lean proteins and vegetables.

Sounds like common sense, non?

As it's still the month of January, and the month of diet and life resolutions, The Beauty Scoop might just give it a whirl.

Fashion and diets, eh? Who'd have thunk it?!

All hail Karl.
