Kim Kardashian Needs To Go On A Diet

Monday, February 14th, 2011 by admin

At least that’s what SHE says.

In Kim Kardashian’s recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the reality TV star said, “I’m on a diet. I need to be. I love to eat — Kit Kats or cookies-and-cream ice cream. I need sugar, like, five times a day.”

Apparently, Kim says the bad habits kicked in while she was filming “Kourtney & Kim Take New York City.” Kardashian admits she can hardly pass up the street vendors and junk food.

She explained, “I worked out once. I gained, like, 10 pounds. All the papers were like, ‘Kim’s pregnant!’ I ate the nuts on the street corner, the hot dogs, the street meat. It was not a joke.”

Do you think she needs to be on a diet? Is this another example of outrageous obsession?

Drinking Diet Coke Does Not Mean You’re On A Diet

Friday, February 11th, 2011 by admin

Remember- the taller you are, the easier it is to be slender. But trust me, you still have to work at it.

James Duigan has been Elle Macpherson’s personal trainer for the last 15 years and he’s recently revealed the secrets behind her enviable figure. He believes that the first step to weight loss is a strong commitment to a healthy lifestyle.

Duigan offers these tips to lose weight and stick to your diet:

*Make the commitment! Find the determination to make changes to your eating habits and, most importantly, to stick to your diet.

*Eat clean and lean – eliminate processed foods from your diet.

*You need to eat lean and clean. Once you get that right, everything else will fall into place.

*Cut out wheat and sugar. Eating processed, low-fat food and drinking diet coke does not mean you’re on a diet.

“It’s not fat that makes you fat, it’s sugar.”

Duigan doesn’t believe in diets that make you count calories, measure portions or ban certain foods. He thinks these types of diets are a waste of time and a solution to lose weight, but only for a short period of time.

*Find the exercise that works best for you. Not everybody can do certain exercises so it’s better to experiment and find those exercises that fit you.

His last tip is to stretch before bed, it’ll help you get a flat tummy.

Duigan is a real believer in these tips, saying that if these are followed properly, anyone can get to have a fit body in about a month.

And trust me- they believe that EVERY OUNCE COUNTS.

Do you find Duigan’s advice do-able? Believable?
Can you find a way to incorporate these ideas into your lifestyle?

Lady Gaga’s Muffin

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010 by admin

The very reason I have a celebrity section on this site is because of shallow shots like this of Lady Gaga. And so begins my rant…

When, please tell me when, will our starstruck, gossip-mongering society stop feeding off the imperfections of the famous. I know all too well the sad, mean-spirited, grade-school attitude, and jealously that humans use to power their egos. But celebrities have to take the brunt of the insecure verbal smackdowns, and out-of-context pictures positioned to to bring them down.

It’s not enough that Lady Gaga is a great entertainer, pushing idealistic boundries- she’s in the public eye whether she wants to be or not. Nope, she also has to maintain a body that meets the MEDIA’S ideal. And that, these days, is nothing short of bone-jutting.

I was looking at art in a gallery recently. And we ask nothing of art but to speak to us in some trancendent way. Art can make us think, or laugh, or inspire. But never once do we ask art to meet OUR particular standards. It is simply there to gaze upon.

I’ve said many times that it should have been enough for Marilyn Monroe to be beautiful, and playful. Like art. But society, in order to feel better about themselves, must criticize. And so she was ridiculed repeatedly. Perfection is and of itself damning.

We wonder sometimes ‘where did that entertainer go?’ Well maybe, when enough of their human-ness has gone VIRAL, they just stop.


Jennifer Hudson Talks About Her Weight Loss And Diet

Thursday, October 7th, 2010 by Fable

DreamGirls Diva and Grammy Award Winner Jennifer Hudson talks about her weight loss.

Hudson says, “My mind hasn’t caught up yet. I’ve always been a person who’s comfortable with myself whether it’s plus-size, small size it doesn’t matter.”

Her weight loss journey took about 6-8 months.

Watch her interview from the Regis And Kelly television show shot on Oct, 4, 2010.

Ms. Hudson says that people hardly recognize her now after her weight loss.
Previously a size 16, Hudson says, “I go into the store and they try to put me in 4s and 6s and I’m like [she looks over both shoulders] ‘Who are you trying to talk to?’”

“I didn’t expect to go as far as I did,” explains Hudson.
