20-pound-weight-loss - Drew Barrymore's 20 Pound Weight Loss

Mom-of-two Drew Barrymore recently opened up in an interview about her 20 pound weight loss. The bubbly 41 year-old actress, who is 5’4”/ 163 cm says that she currently weighs 124 lbs:

On how she achieved the weight 20 pound weight loss:

I’ve been very disciplined and all I did was cry and dream about pizza. I still am dreaming and crying about pizza.

On her weight:

I was 144 and now I’m 124. I did it on the filming of a Netflix show [Santa Clarita Diet]. I feel really great. I followed Kimberly Snyder’s methods, but I added some protein like fish and chicken since she’s all vegetarian or vegan.

On her future plans:

The holidays are coming up, so I’m going to enjoy some of that stuffing!

Gisele Bundchen’s Approach to Halloween Candy

very-restrictive-diet - Gisele Bundchen's Approach to Halloween Candy

Supermodel queen Gisele Bundchen is known for opting for a very restrictive diet, one that is mostly raw and void of sugar. The mom of two implements almost the same diet when it comes to her kids, which is why she is very much against Halloween candy.

More details on this story from People Magazine:

Forget eating her kids’ Halloween candy, Gisele Bündchen not only didn’t steal any of her children’s haul, but she gave it all away! The supermodel mom made an appearance at the grand opening of the Under Armour Boston Brand House in the Prudential Center on Wednesday evening, and explained that son Benjamin and daughter Vivian (who dressed as Mario and a pony, respectively) were so uninterested in their Halloween haul, they let their mom give it away.

“We don’t really have that a kind of sugar in our house,” Bündchen told PEOPLE. “I let them try one (piece), but they really only had one bite and then they didn’t want it anymore. So I told them if they didn’t like it I was going to give it away to other kids and they actually let me give their candy away,” she added of her and Tom Brady‘s kids.

But don’t feel bad for Bündchen’s kids; they still get to eat dessert every day.

“It’s a little different kind of sweets, so they’re not used to it,” said Bündchen. “I said to them, ‘You know, there are so many kids that don’t get candy and you guys got so many, some kids don’t even get one! And they’re like, ‘Oh mom, okay you can give it to them if they don’t get any.’”

What do you think of Gisele’s very restrictive diet approach? Moderation is better or perfectly reasonable?

 

Lea Michele: “I get a lot of compliments on my legs, which is funny for a short girl”

On why the scale doesn’t determine her self-worth:

“As I get older, my body is always changing. Right now I have so much energy, my skin looks good, and my butt is higher than it’s ever been. I’ve been skinnier and I’ve been a little bit bigger, and I’m never hard on myself one way or the other. The fact that I’m active, eating well, and taking care of myself is all that matters—not a number.”

On why she loves her shape:

“I love my shape because it’s unique to me. I’m 5’2”, and I get a lot of compliments on my legs, which is funny for a short girl. But they’re one of my favorite things about my body.”

On learning to listen to her body:

“If I have one of those days when I don’t want to work out, I ask myself why. I’ve learned how to listen to my body and know what I need in that moment. And I’m grateful for that. It took me a very long time to get to this place. Now I can tell when my body is saying to take a break from working out, or when it’s saying, No, you’re being a little lazy, so that I can push myself to get going.”

On what she eats:

“I was vegan for a while, I was vegetarian for 10 years, and now I’ve incorporated meat back into my diet. I eat as healthy as possible because I know food fuels me. I usually start my day with avocado toast or a green smoothie. I love a big salad for lunch; I’m always concocting recipes like kale Caesar or spinach artichoke salad. For dinner I’m flexible. If I’m going out and I want a bowl of pasta, I’ll eat it. I’m not hard on myself.”

… says Lea in Shape.

Venus Williams: “Following a vegan diet on the court, you have to plan your life out”

On her almost 100% vegan lifestyle:

What led me a vegan lifestyle? My sisters, they saw me having health difficulties and they said ‘why don’t you try a plant-based lifestyle?’ When you have an opportunity to do it together, there’s nothing like it because the motivation is there and you’re not alone.

Following a vegan diet on the court, you have to plan your life out. I try wherever I’m traveling to scope out places where you can eat, bring things with me to the hotel. I always have a blender, I get to go to fresh markets around the world.

… says Venus.

 

Kate Bosworth doesn’t eat wheat, sugar or dairy, follows 80/20 diet

Kate Bosworth doesn’t eat wheat, sugar or dairy, follows 80/20 diet

ACZONE Gel, 7.5% Launch In NYC
These are photos of Kate Bosworth in New York on June 3rd. She was at the launch of an acne treatment, where she was quite overdressed in a pink gown, and out casually dressed in bell bottoms, fug patent flats, and a sleeves striped scoop neck sweater. Self Magazine spoke to Kate at the skincare event about her diet and exercise regime because that’s their subject matter and no one wants to hear what she thinks about fashion. Kate said that she’s on an 80/20 diet, similar to the diets that Gisele Bundchen and Olivia Munn follow, in that she eats a very restrictive diet 80% of the time with indulgences the other 20%. She said that she doesn’t eat wheat, dairy or sugar most of the time but does make allowances when she’s on vacation. I would assume that she eats a very calorie restricted diet regardless, just because she’s so small. She doesn’t look as thin as we’ve seen her in the past though and she does seem healthier overall.

“One day in my mid-20s it hit me that I can’t have a burger for lunch. I’m going to fall asleep,” she said in a recent one-on-one interview with SELF during the launch of Aczone Gel 7.5 percent, a topical acne treatment.

So what’s in her fridge to keep her going through the post-lunch slump? Bosworth stocks up on lean meat, fruits, avocados, walnuts, eggs, and olive oil—ingredients packed with healthy fats. And while she’s filming The Art of More, she is following a wheat-free, sugar-free, dairy-free meal plan (except for goat cheese and goat milk). For Bosworth, a typical breakfast might include a goat cheese omelet with avocado and tomatoes. But of course, the 33-year-old actress has that one thing she could never cut out. “Ketchup is the indulgence that I never give up. Ketchup on everything,” she said.

Bosworth knows that although this diet is delicious, it’s a bit strict. And she revealed that she only eats this way 80 percent of the time. When she goes to Montana to spend time with her husband Michael Polish, it’s a totally different story. She’s drinking whiskey, chowing down on burgers, and cooking ragu in between riding horses and swimming.

So you could say that her healthy living plan subscribes to the “all things in moderation” adage. And that’s her same philosophy when it comes to exercise. “I had a hard time with my exercise routine because I felt like it had to be an hour, and it had to be really rigorous and intense,” she said. “Then, I realized you can go down and get on the treadmill for 20 minutes, and you’ve done something.” And something is always better than nothing!

[From Self]

I have the same question I had about Olivia Munn’s 80/20 diet, how do you count that exactly? Do you just eat well 8 days out of 10 or is it only a rough estimate? In terms of burgers making you tired, on Saturday I actually had a burger for lunch and noticed that I got very sleepy afterwards. (I do eat burgers but only once every couple of weeks and for dinner, so my body wasn’t used to it.) I also can relate to pushing yourself too hard while exercising, just because I don’t feel like I accomplish anything if I don’t work hard for an hour or more. As one of my spin instructors says however, abs are made in the kitchen. It looks like Kate’s kitchen is very regimented. I hate this idea that you have to give up entire food groups to lose weight or keep it off though, it makes a lot of people think it’s impossible.

Star: Joaquin Phoenix is almost broke, but still spending $5 million a year

Star: Joaquin Phoenix is almost broke, but still spending $5 million a year

FFN_Joaquin_ff6_ff7_022816_51982079

Joaquin Phoenix has been getting photographed every few months in LA this year. He’s not working, but he seems to be keeping busy, taking martial arts classes and picking up cigarettes and energy drinks. Whenever I see pap photos of him, he seems to be doing well enough. But he hasn’t worked in more than a year. His last film was Woody Allen’s Irrational Man, which filmed in the summer of 2014. While Joaquin has flirted with signing on to some big projects – like Doctor Strange, which Marvel really wanted – nothing has really happened. And now Star Magazine says that Joaquin’s finances are in shambles and he needs to stop being so picky and/or shady.

Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to play Jesus in a new movie, but he needs divine intervention to turn around his finances!

“Joaquin needs to make $5 million a year to support his lifestyle, and so far this year he’s made zero,” an insider says, explaining that his attitude has so far cost him Jared Leto’s role in Suicide Squad, Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman and even the lead in the Doctor Strange flick out this November.

“Getting him to sign on the dotted line is a nightmare,” says an industry insider. “He’ll drag out the salary negotiations for months, which holds up production and costs the studios more money in the end.”

Not he’s hoping to get back in the black by playing the son of God in a Mary Magdalene flick costarring Rooney Mara.

“Joaquin is confident he’ll get the part, but it’s not a done deal,” tattles the friend. “If he starts insisting on things like a feng-shui’d trailer and an on-call vegan chef plus an insane $15 million paycheck, he’s going to lose this role too. And that could mean he’ll be completely out of money by the end of the year.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

I never really think of Joaquin as a demanding diva or a money-strapped spendthrift. Is he temperamental? Sure. Does he believe his indie street cred would be damaged by taking roles in comic book movies? Probably. But is he the guy who blows through $5 million a year? Eh. Is he the guy who spends months arguing for bigger and bigger paychecks? Eh. My guess is that Joaquin argues for more money on films he really doesn’t want to do. Also: while the Doctor Strange thing has been verified, I didn’t know Joaquin was up for the Joker and Lex Luthor. Did he really say no to all three parts? Yikes. He would have been a much better and creepier Joker than Jared Leto.

Beyonce: “I am not naturally the thinnest woman”

FFN_f_51748094

The full story from Us Weekly:

Not exactly earth-shattering news. Beyonce hyped a big announcement to be made on Good Morning America on Monday, June 8, releasing a teaser video this past weekend and getting fans talking about just what the news might be.

The promotional clip, which made its way online in the late hours of Sunday evening, showed Beyonce telling a camera, “This is something I have to share with everyone.” The video inspired speculation that Queen Bey was finally releasing a studio album with her husband Jay Z, or announcing that she was pregnant again, making 3-year-old daughter Blue Ivy a big sister.

The actual reveal was far less shocking. The Grammy winner, 33, made her appearance on GMA to discuss her vegan diet. She took Marco Borges’ 22-Day Vegan Challenge in 2013, and has since stuck with the meal plan, shedding inches and pounds off of her famed figure.

I am not naturally the thinnest woman,” she said in the recorded video on the morning show. “I have curves, I’m proud of my curves. I have struggled since a young age with diets. Finding something that actually works, that actually keeps the weight off has been difficult for me.
The star, who added that her skin is “really firm and a lot tighter” since trying the challenge, said the program helped her get the weight “off fast” and keep it off. She used the GMA appearance to promote 22 Days Nutrition, her meal delivery service with Borges that was first announced in February.

While some foodies were seemingly pleased with Beyonce’s highly anticipated announcement, many members of the Beyhive were less than thrilled with the apparent letdown and took to Twitter to voice their frustration.

“They had the dramatic music in the Beyonce/GMA interview commercial and she’s announcing that she only eats grass lmao,” one Twitter user wrote. Another added, “This Beyoncé announcement had me dead, I almost made it to school an hour late because I thought this GMA announcement would’ve been big,” while a third chimed in, “What a joke. Beyonce uses Good Morning America to announce she’s vegan. Yikes.”
