Mandy Ingber is a personal trainer, fitness and wellness adviser, and possibly one of the best yoga and spinning teachers in Los Angeles. For more than 15 years, Mandy has been helping people become healthier and happier with their bodies and themselves.
“Having the body you want begins with loving the body you have,” Mandy tells her students on a regular basis. This philosophy and idea of accepting yourself as you are helps students love themselves while making physical improvements in their bodies.
Mandy has created a yoga-hybrid workout called Yogalosophy, a “motivational hybrid technique [that] revolves around cycles of change.” Yogalosophy combines constant motion (spinning) with stillness and strengthening (yoga) to challenge your body into becoming it’s best. Many celebrities have come to Mandy for help getting themselves into better physical form. Some of her followers include Jennifer Aniston, Ricki Lake, Brooke Shields, and Helen Hunt.
Oh, Hollywood celebrities… their lifestyles are just as wild as their eating habits. And, all of us who closely follow their lives in the pages of Us Magazine and TMZ are just as wacky, especially when we copy their dieting practices.
Recently, Yahoo! Shine asked the health experts at Mayo Clinic to evaluate seven fad celebrity diets. Here is the skinny on everything from baby food to eating nothing but purple-colored foods.
Eating the same meal every single day for 10 years? Sounds a little like Elvis; or even Einstein with that outfit. Quirky or not, it was a fact of life for the ‘Friends’ female-threesome: Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow.
The co-stars of the long-running popular sitcom are slender, fit and beautiful, and even since the final episode aired more than six years ago, we’re still keen on knowing how they do it.
Courteney Cox told the LA Times the answer in a word: salad.
“Jennifer and Lisa [Kudrow] and I ate lunch together every single day for 10 years. And we always had the same thing — a Cobb salad. But it wasn’t really a Cobb salad. It was a Cobb salad that Jennifer doctored up with turkey bacon and garbanzo beans and I don’t know what. She just has a way with food, which really helps. Because if you’re going to eat the same salad every day for 10 years, it’d better be a good salad, right?”, Cox said. (more…)
There has been a gossip buzz lately regarding the so-called Baby Food Diet, and what Hollywood celebrities are following the diet to keep their impossibly thin figures. The highest profiled celebrity to be associated with the Baby Food Diet is Jennifer Aniston. But, the former Friends star has adamantly denied the claims.
“I’ve been asked lately, ‘Jen, what’s this baby food diet all about?'” says Aniston. “I kept thinking: That’s the strangest question ever.”
The Baby Food Cleanse, created by celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, entails eating 14 servings of pureed food every day, with a normal healthy dinner to cap things off. So if the diet was created by a high-profile trainer, one would think someone is doing it. It’s just not Jennifer Aniston.
Just when you thought you heard it all in diet fads, here comes the Baby Food Diet. That’s right, revisit your time as a newborn when all you ate was jars of whipped sweet potatoes, and mixed vegetable with chicken.
As is often the case with some fad diets, the Baby Food Diet is hot in Hollywood. There is talk of Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and even some of the cast of Desperate Housewives taking part in this back-to-the cradle weight loss plan.
There has been a particularly strong buzz surrounding Jennifer Aniston of late. She is still one of the few in the elite “America’s Sweetheart” club. And, even at 41, she still has the body of a twentysomething.
