Keto, Whole30, Paleo—with so many diet buzzwords out there, it’s difficult to keep track of them all. But here's a better idea: Instead of getting caught up in calorie or carb counting, take inspiration from the celebrities who have sworn off the whole diet-deprivation thing. These ladies focus on nourishing themselves with nutritious food—and plenty of it. Here's exactly why you'll never catch Jennifer Lawrence, Jameela Jamil, and five other stars trying to shed pounds on a diet.

Also, when I get nervous, I try to bust jokes. It does work."

"I was like, 'I have a baby. Do you know how awesome that is? It's so radical! Why on earth am I going to be so concerned with my pants size?'" the actress told E! News, shortly after giving birth to daughter Lincoln, who is now 4.
