This time it's Batman babe Alicia Silverstone and she's raving about RAW food.
The sexy star - who recently stripped off to front a racy PETA campaign - says she owes her shapely figure to munching raw fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds.
In fact Alicia rates her new-found eating plan so highly she is calling on the US Government to promote her healthy lifestyle on a nationwide scale.
The girl doesn't do things by halves!
"There is nothing in the world that has changed me as much as this diet," she raves. "I have so much more energy. It’s so amazing.
"Meat, dairy products and other foods are fuelling the epidemic of childhood obesity. Our kids need help, and now. We have a chance to change things."
The Sun's nutritionist, Amanda Ursell, is not as convinced:
"A raw food diet is very nutritious, but can be very difficult to stick to because it's so limiting. If you live in a warm climate, like LA, it's easier to live off cold, uncooked food. But for us Brits, it's simply not as feasible."
Fanatic Alicia is one of the growing number of Hollywood stars to embrace raw food.
