The Second Annual Best and Worst Celebrity Diet List of 2008 today named the celebrities who are the best and worst role models for healthy eating and sustainable weight loss. The list is presented by Marc Lawrence, M.D., who reviews celebrity diets and celebrity weight loss at

"This year the buzz around Hollywood is that 'diets don't work'," said Dr Marc. "Lifestyle behaviors, frequently the difference between successful weight loss and a lifetime of yo-yo dieting, are responsible for some of Hollywood's blockbuster slim downs and flops."

Best Celebrity Diets for 2008:
5. Jennifer Love Hewitt: Those unflattering bikini photos seem so long ago as this Ghost Whisperer star has been letting her body speak loud and clear; daily fruits and veggies do a body good.
4. Jessica Alba: Jessica exercised her superhero abilities on a regimen of whole foods, cardio and interval training to power her fantastic 25 pound post-pregnancy slim down.
3. Debra Messing: Eating gracefully, Debra lost 42 pounds of her post-baby weight by sticking to a diet high in unprocessed veggies, fruits and lean protein.
2. Kelly Osbourne: By fixing her refined carb cravings with her new addiction to veggies and fruits, Kelly Osbourne is reborn with a healthy new figure.
1. Britney Spears: Since ditching her "Toxic" junk food diet for veggies and lean protein, Britney is sporting a new outlook and an A-list slim down that has everyone wanting "A Piece of Me."

And the Worst Celebrity Diets for 2008:
5. Carnie Wilson: Carnie proves that even gastric bypass is not a fix for sabotaging behaviors. Despite her much publicized surgery and weight loss, this Celebrity Fit Club participant regained 58 pounds. (Her yo-yo dieting continues; she most recently lost 50 pounds before her current pregnancy.)
4. Monica Seles: This former tennis star may have lost 33 pounds on a high protein diet but she also increased her risk of chronic disease. Advantage: heart disease, cancer, and osteoporosis.
3. Hilary Swank: 47 ways to sub-optimal health. Reportedly downing 47 "million dollar" supplements a day, this Million Dollar Baby star is unwittingly subjecting her body to accelerated aging.
2. Kim Kardashian: Kim has kept her shapely "junk in the trunk" figure with exercise and a gig on Dancing with The Stars. However, her junk food diet will inevitably causeā€¦ too much junk.
1. Oprah Winfrey: The queen of media and yo-yo dieter is the poster child for "diets don't work." Proper weight loss behaviors and habits should be one of Oprah's "favorite things."
