In recent years paparazzi and the rest of America has had their eye on Simple Life star and daughter of Lionel Richie, Nicole Richie, because of her dramatic weight-loss. Nicole claimed to have never had an eating disorder, but rather after years of abuse she was finally taking care of her body.

It seems now that she is raising a child she is not only taking care of herself, but also her husband Joel Madden and her baby by not having any junk food in the house. Joel was resistant at first, but he now says that he has more energy during the day and sleeps better at night.

Many people believe that celebrities eat whatever they want because they can afford to have trainers to ward off the effects of chemicalized junk food, but it seems that celebs are finally realizing it’s not just about what they look like, but also how they feel. Take Britney Spears, Gwyneth Paltrow, Christina Applegate and Madonna for instance. They have all started paying attention to the benefits of whole foods on their energy levels and their bodies.

It’s great that stars are speaking out about their healthy diet changes and how it leads to increased energy and better sleep. As you start to incorporate more whole foods into your diet and crowd out the processed foods, what changes do you notice?
