The Body, Diet, and Feud Fueling the Katy Perry Half-time Show

katy-perry-college-gameday

Some of us are excited for the Seahawks to play the Patriots, some of us are excited for the commercials, and some of us are just excited for a free Katy Perry concert! That’s right, Miss California Gurl is performing the half-time show this year, and much anticipation surrounds this headliner. There have been lots of rumors surrounding Perry lately, and here we discuss what we might expect to see at the show — and of course, how she has kept in shape for the big game.

Perry’s half-time body

Perry has tweeted quite a few hilarious pictures of herself lately, though none accurately depict her true form. She and footballer J.J. Watt graced the cover of ESPN Magazine. Perry is looking stunning for her big gig, and it has been reported that she has been on the 5-Factor Diet to stay in top-notch shape for the big game. The 5-Factor Diet is a lifestyle that focuses on small meals and all of the food groups. Seems like Perry has been munching on a classic diet of veggies, whole-grains, and protein, as well as 25 minutes of exercise a day. Perry looks perfect and we are sure her performance will blow us all away.

See How the Stars are Dieting in 2015

Diet is the word of the season, no matter what you claim as your profession. Celebrities aren’t immune, and their diet proclivities make front-page news. Here’s how some of the biggest names have lost some of their winter pounds, whether living in the real world or prepping for the red carpet season ahead.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Though Paltrow does not have a need to lose weight — she has been deemed “Queen of the Cleanse” — she recently posted about her “annual deep cleanse.” Her annual diet consists of three meals and one snack and focuses on ridding your body of toxins in your system. No dairy, sweeteners, alcohol, caffeine, wheat, or any meat, including seafood.

Soleil Moon-Frye

We spoke with Frye recently about her incredible 23 pound weight loss, something she is very proud of. Frye lost the weight using Nutrisystem‘s My Way and Fast 5, programs that helped her keep on track after a third baby. The former Punky Brewster star looks great, and is happy to be able to eat whatever she likes!

Timothy Spall

Spall, the well-known Harry Potter actor who plays Wormtail, emerged at the Film Critics Circle Award quite a bit lighter. Spall credits his weight loss to the motivation of his wife, a personal trainer, and a huge change in his diet. Spall’s son has also recently celebrated a huge weight loss of his own. (more…)

Swimsuit model, actress, supermodel…mom, wife, woman…the very real, yet very supermodel Molly Sims has added author to her resume. Her new lifestyle book, The Everyday Supermodel, shares her hard-earned fitness, fashion, and health insights. Before you assume taking wellness and life advice from a supermodel is not your thing, you’ve got to know that Sims’ book is written like she is talking to an old friend. Girlfriend to girlfriend, her advice is realistic, and she writes in a way that is easy to relate.

Here are some of the best pieces of advice from Molly Sims that you can adopt right now to make your own life super!

1. Perseverance can get you anywhere.

Sims introduces her book by assuring readers that she worked hard to get where she is today, initially assuring her audience that she is not just a supermodel.

“There’s an everyday supermodel in each one of us.”

2. Love your body.

This is a message we hear all the time, but it is extra helpful hearing it from a supermodel. Sims discusses how she loved to learn her not stick-thin body, and encourages women to do the same, at all stages of her life.

3. If you look good, you feel good.

Sims’ book is peppered with mottos and motivational quotes. One of the best is:

“If you look good, you feel good–and when you feel good, you look good. So you might as well feel f-ing fabulous!” (more…)

Known best as the 80’s child star of Punky Brewster, Soleil Moon-Frye is back in the spotlight after losing 23 pounds. She credits Nutrisystem’s Fast 5 and My Way, a program she is emphatic about.

“It has just been amazing,” Frye gushed to DietsInReview.com this week. She went on to discuss how after having her third child, her baby weight was “just not coming off and I had to figure out a way to lose it!” Through a friend who had been using the program, Frye learned about Nutrisystem and hopped online to sign up.

“In the first week, I dropped five pounds and thought, ‘I can do this.'” The ease combined with the health benefits of the program kept Frye on track. Though she explains that some weeks she lost a pound or two, and other weeks it was a bit more, the fact that it was done in a healthy way was important. “I am able to eat all the things I love, and I am able to enjoy the things I eat,” Frye explained.  (more…)

Kirstie Alley Loses 50 Pounds with Jenny Craig, Says “This Time It’s Different”

kirstie alley 50 pounds

Kirstie Alley has always been very vocal about her weight losses and gains, something she has spoken about as a Jenny Craig spokesperson, a Dancing With the Stars star, and a Fat Actress. Alley spoke to Today’s Matt Lauer yesterday about her most recent weight loss. She has reached her goal of not only 30 pounds, but 50!

Alley told Lauer that she once again lost the weight through Jenny Craig, for which she returned as a paid spokesperson in early 2014. She returned to Jenny Craig with a controversial commercial in which she called the brand to set-up an appointment and referenced being “Circus Fat.” She told DietsInReview.com at the time that’s how she saw herself and not a representation of how the brand saw its customers.

Her return to Jenny Craig last year was also part of the brand’s parent company buying Kirstie’s Organic Liaison brand. Her rather large product line has been reduced to a single product, Rescue Me (an organic “energy elixir”) that is now available for purchase only through the JC website.

In the Today interview, Alley went on to tell Lauer that she has used Jenny Craig in the past, but this time, she actually “really listened” to her private consultant. “We planned things out this time, that makes a big difference.” (more…)

By Shae Blevins

The New Year is upon us and we’re sure that you’re ready to start the new diet and exercise plan you’ve been talking about since eating your fill (and then some) at Thanksgiving dinner.

A variety of celeb-backed options outrank more traditional approaches. The Paleo diet marks Jessica Biel amongst its followers. The “eating a spoonful of clay” diet favored by Shailene Woodley, of “The Fault in Our Stars.” And Zooey Deschanel, who has given up gluten.

There is also the super fit Matthew McConaughey, the ultra-fabulous Dita Von Teese, and The Queen and King — Beyonce and Jay Z — the sexy A-listers who have gone vegan by way of Mark Bittman’s VB6. (more…)

How Celebrities Resolve to Live Better in 2015

kendra-wilkinson

Yes, celebs are just like us. They make New Year’s resolutions, too! If you have yet to plan your 2015 goals, look to these famous role models to come up with your own! We like how they’re keeping it simple and realistic.

1. “When people are talking to me, I will listen.” — Matt Preston, MasterChef Australia

Preston goes on to tell the Daily Mail that he does not usually believe in resolutions, but he and his daughter resolved to make this goal together.

2. “I just need to be better this year than I was last year.” — Ne-Yo, singer

He says, “New Year’s resolutions don’t work for me because I’ll be real disciplined for like a week and then I’ll fall off.” Ne-Yo has a good plan regardless: resolve to not make any resolutions. Personally, trying to be overall “better” than you were in a prior year is a perfect resolution.

3. “I don’t make ’em, ’cause I always break ’em.” — Dolly Parton, country starThough Parton has a similar mindset as Ne-Yo, she also went on to tell Female First that she will stay busy, which keeps her energetic. Her other secret? Naps. “Where I am, whatever I’m doing, I take a quick nap.” Not a bad resolution — more naps! (more…)

celebrity-diets

There’s been a heap of exciting, tragic, and inspiring celebrity news stories in 2014. We lost some too soon (Robin Williams), are sending some to prison (Teresa Giudice), and saw many bring new babes in to the world. We also saw some lose and gain, for better or worse. The year brought to light a new roll of celebrities who now have before and afters to show off.

For a montage you won’t likely see at the early January Golden Globes, we present the biggest and best celebrity diet and weight stories of 2014.

Kevin Smith

The famously silent director and actor dropped more than 20 pounds this year. Couple that with a clean-shaven face and he’s darn near unrecognizable. You’ll get a glimpse of his trimmer body and baby face in his new movie Yoga Hosers.

Rachel Frederickson Winner of Biggest Loser

Rachel Frederickson

Biggest Loser experienced maybe their biggest controversy yet, when season 15 winner Rachel Frederickson came out on stage looking not quite as healthy as winners in the past. The Biggest Loser lost 60 percent of her body fat — a dangerously unhealthy final weight.

Jim Gaffigan’s Hilarious Food Rules for Everyone Not to Live by

food-love-story

Jim Gaffigan recently recently his second book entitled Food: A Love Story. Gaffigan, if you are unfamiliar with his brand of humor, is a hilarious, honest, satirical comedian. He previously wrote the book Dad is Fat, in which he reels on fatherhood with five young children. And in similar fashion in his newest release, Gaffigan has his readers rolling with his honest take on food. He says the things we all may be thinking, but we all may not be saying. Gaffigan explores everything from American food consumption to the questionable purpose of kale.

Though the entire book is quotable, we probably can’t republish it here. So we’re sharing a few of Gaffigan’s best food rules to abide by. (Or, to not abide by, but to at least laugh at.)

Jim Gaffigan’s Hilarious Food Rules for Everyone

1. Never take advice from skinny people.

“When a thin person announces, “Here’s a great taco place,” I kind of shut down a little. How do they know it’s so great? From smelling the tacos?”

Now maybe this isn’t fair. Of course there are plenty of skinny people who know great food when they taste it, and of course there are plenty of skinny people that like particular foods that other not-so-skinny people might also enjoy. The point is, Gaffigan’s point is hilarious.

2. Steak is a big deal.

“…because consuming a steak is one of the great pleasures we get to experience during our short time on this planet.”

Gaffigan describes his confusion toward his father’s love for steak as a child, though he touchingly concludes just why it was so important to him throughout his life. Steak can be particularly fancy, and I think we all know that.

3. Gravy is not a beverage.

Our eyes met, and he gave me a warm Midwestern smile as if to say, “Hey, how’s it going?” I nodded and said hello and was only a bit more than slightly tempted to exclaim, “You realize you’re drinking gravy, right?”

Gaffigan pokes a lot of fun at Midwesterners, a title he himself holds, and though I must add that not all Midwest-residents probably drink gravy, this story is too good to pass up. It’s one of the best LOL anecdotes in the entire book! (more…)

Rick Ross Weight Loss

“I eat pears now…” Ross proudly claims in an interview. “Shout out to all the pear.”

That simple statement in an interview with Tim Westwood has gained more than 300,000 views on YouTube and spawned an equally popular Vine video.
