Green tea and fruit it is for Depp

According to Ecorazzi.com, Depp -- a fan of fried chicken -- is kicking the cluck (and just about every other food group) to drop his weight down to a gaunt 140 pounds. In Dark Shadows, which is based on the popular 1960s same-name TV series, Depp plays bony vampire Barnabas Collins. To get into his role for director Tim Burton, Depp is losing weight by drinking green tea and eating low-fructose fruit.

Why green tea?

Renowned for its antioxidant-rich cancer-fighting powers, green tea is also hailed for its potential in speeding up metabolism, suppressing hunger, and burning fat due to the polyphenols and caffeine found in the plant. As for the fruits Depp is eating, we don't know the specifics, but we suspect low-fructose fruits including stone fruits (apricots, peaches, plums), lemons, limes, and cantaloupe, to name a few.

Accidental vegan

There haven't been any reports that Depp plans to extend this green tea and fruit diet into a more balanced vegan diet once he reaches his movie weight, but he will be an accidental or temporary vegan for the time being.
