Here’s the premise of the 5 Bite Diet if you’ve not yet heard of the latest fast weight loss diet: The 5 Bite Diet is the brainchild of Dr. Alwin Lewis. In his book “Why Weight Around? Changing The Weight Loss Strategy ”, he says that the obesity crisis affecting America can be solved if people only kept their meals to no more than 5 bites – hence the 5 Bite Diet. I actually kinda eat like this. And believe it or not I enjoy those five bites so much and for the most part it does fill me up. I chew everything 20 times or more and it seems that my body understands being full faster.

And to try to do 5 bites of food every 3-4 hours to keep the metabolism up.

Ashley Tisdale loves food and her co-workers from the Hellcats know it best. Even if she eats a lot, the 5’3″ actress has never been in better shape and fitter like she is now. The 25-year-old might be eating a lot, but she makes sure to burn those calories fast by going to the gym and working out as often as possible. “I eat a lot of food,” she admits. “The guys are like, ‘You eat more than we do!’ It’s kind of crazy. I eat food for the energy, and obviously I have to eat a lot because I’m burning so much.” Her diet consists of six meals a day and she avoids certain carbs that are not good for her. Tisdale prefers eating apples, hummus, celery, almond butter, as well as fish, steak or turkey. Even if her diet includes high-protein foods that supply her with plenty of energy, Tisdale still can’t give up coffee. And not just any coffee. “Coffee! Folger’s, actually, with Coffee Mate. It’s the one thing I just can’t give up,” she admits. Tisdale uses all that energy throughout her workouts. Six times a week, she practices kickboxing and weight lifting one-hour-sessions with her personal trainer. “It’s [kickboxing] great for cardio. It’s great for your abs and your whole body. Weight training is great for toning up and leaning up without bulking up. But the kickboxing is really amazing because it just works everything at once,” she explains. The actress says that all her efforts are not about losing weight, but about being toned and feeling good about herself.

Kathy Ireland first made a name for herself as a famous super model, appearing on countless magazine covers and she went on from there to become quite a successful business woman. The only problem was that, between all the business success and life as a busy mother and wife, she did what so many other women do– let herself go. The catch was, Kathy did not even realize she was letting herself go and it took a non-airbrushed candid family photograph to open her eyes (see photo above). Before she saw photo she was like many other busy mothers, focusing on all the other necessities that needed to be taken care of rather than taking care of herself. She often found herself skipping workouts and eating on the run or skipping meals altogether. Taking time to exercise or plan healthy meals for my husband and me seemed like a luxury I could no longer afford,” she says. This went on for quite awhile–until she saw the snapshot her son so innocently took. She did not like what she saw one bit and even recalls her daughter saying ‘Mom, you look pregnant’. Then it began floating around the internet and her friends began telling her it was no big deal, that she would “lose the weight, put on a bikini, and go on Oprah.” Yet, for Kathy, it was more than an embarrassment factor; it was a health factor. I wanted to push the delete button. I saw someone who looked overwhelmed, overstressed, overworked, overweight, over. . . everything,” she says. When Kathy found the courage to step on the scale she found that 25 extra pounds had crept up on her over the years at the rate of about a pound per year and, having lost a close friend to a sudden heart attack at the age of 42, Kathy knew first hand the dangers the extra weight could cause. Kathy’s friend was thin with no previous symptoms of heart problems, yet tests conducted after his death concluded that his blood contained high triglyceride levels (a type of fat found in the blood) and C-reactive protein (a protein known to increase heart attack risk). His death was because he did not make the time to eat right and exercise or find out the true health of his heart via medical exams. The memory of her friend’s untimely death, coupled with seeing the photo, left Kathy dumbfounded that the media was making such a big deal about her weight as related to her looks and not her health. Nobody was asking ‘What are your cholesterol levels? What about your triglycerides?’ For me, it wasn’t about looking a certain way; it was about being healthy,” she explains. So she hired a personal trainer and nutritionist which led to less snacking, less sweets and more vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Now, she makes it a point to include salads as part of her family’s meal plans. Since the photo, Kathy has also made it a point to take the time to exercise and stay fit. Although she will readily admit that organized fitness activities are not her cup of tea, she stretches on a regular basis to help maintain her posture as well as walks, bikes, hikes, swims, and even surfs because she would rather be doing something fun that incorporates physical activity. Now that she is back to her “normal” weight she likes to share with other women the importance of focusing on your own health. There is no shame in weight gain and beautiful people come in all shapes and sizes, ” she says, “but don’t put off your health. It’s too important. Every mom I know has a to-do list. Put yourself and your health on that list.” Source http://www.remedylife.com/
Crystal Renn is far from being an ordinary model. She’s a healthy size 14 and she’s built a reputation for herself as a sexy model with natural curves. Although she’s not a size zero kind of model, Crystal has plenty of work going her way. Channel and Gaultier are just two labels that are featuring the hot model in their campaigns. The 24-year-old has recently appeared in Look Magazine showing off her fabulous curves while modeling High Street fashion. Although she’s now a confident model, happy with her body weight, Crystal used to be anorexic. “When I was told I need to lose 10in off my hips, I decided to go on a diet and soon lost 35lbs,” she confessed. “Then my weight plateaued, so I began exercising for up to eight hours a day, eating only vegetables and drinking large quantities of Diet Coke.” After she became close to a skeleton and started to lose her hair, Crystal realized she needed to put an end to her extreme diet, and make some changes. She now eats healthy meals and keeps her body fit with yoga and hiking. Although there’s a size zero model stereotype that’s been promoted in the media constantly, it seems like Hollywood is starting to make room and appreciate models and celebrities with natural curves. On the other side, Crystal doesn’t believe in stereotypes and refuses to be categorized as a plus-size model. “Let’s get rid of straight size and plus size. It’s bulls**t. Just say model. Full stop,” said the model. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1308029/Crystal-Renn-works-magic-sexy-photoshoot.html
Bravo’s Fitness expert Jackie Warner, famous for her reality show Work Out, is back with a new series Thintervention with Jackie Warner. In the show, the fitness guru advises eight clients on how to lose weight. Although the show was released a couple of days ago, prior to the premiere, Jackie shared some tips on how to start a diet, how to stick to it and lose weight successfully. The 42-year- old says that one of the biggest mistakes people make when starting a diet is setting an impossible goal. “The biggest mistake people make when starting a diet is aiming too high. They watch shows like The Biggest Looser and they want to lose like 30 pounds in a month. It doesn’t work that way,” she says. “ It’s safe to lose 1 or 2 pounds in a week, really, for long term effect. You need to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and that’s why I designed that program.” Jackie explains that most people see deprivation as a solution to lose weight, which is not healthy and definitely not a long term solution. “Deprivation does not work for us so we have to do enjoy the foods that we really do enjoy on the weekends,” she explains. Her first advice when starting a weight loss diet is to drink a lot of water. Secondly, avoid sugar and artificial sweeteners. If you really need to use artificial sweeteners, Jackie says that these should be included in moderation. “You have to have some carbs for the muscles. You can’t build lean muscles without carbohydrates, but it’s the right kind of carbs, like brown rice, good starches,” says Jackie. Alcohol should also be consumed in moderation. “You can have alcohol in moderation. It’s ok to have alcohol once or twice a week, one or two drinks. A little bit of alcohol is fine,” she advises. When it comes to exercises, Jackie says doing squads and push ups are the best way to start. “Intense deep squads and push ups are the best two exercises. You got to intensity for it to work,” she explains. Source http://extratv.warnerbros.com/2010/09/thintervention_host_jackie_warners_shape_up_tips. php

Korea’s Next Top Model… Model Jang Yoon-ju to take Tyra Banks' role as host/judge
By Han Sang-hee
The famous opening “You wanna be on top?” signals the start of the hit reality show “America’s Next Top Model,” and local fans can now watch the exciting show with a bit of a twist. A Korean twist, that is.
The popular show produced and hosted by model Tyra Banks has been remade in numerous countries, including Australia, Germany and now Korea.
Korea, infatuated with entertaining television, has already had an array of reality shows searching for young and talented models via both major and cable networks.
Despite the interest, most of the shows failed to captivate viewers and create a stir. Some found fault in the format, which resembled “America’s Next Top Model” but didn’t carry that edgy and nail-biting excitement, while others pointed out the lack of originality and personality of the contestants.
Now, cable channel OnStyle is aiming to bring the best show in the current model- search reality show scene, with some of the best known fashion experts as judges and photographers.
“(This) is not about adding Korean features, but proving to the local audience that we can make a program as good as the ones aired in the U.S. We have worked with some of the top experts in fashion and most of all, we tried to bring a much better version in terms of quality compared to other countries,” Lee Woo-cheol, the producer of Korea’s Next Top Model, said during a press conference at Cine Maru theater, central Seoul, Tuesday.
The concept of the show is simple: aspiring models are given a photo shoot mission every episode and after evaluation by the judges, one contestant is sent home while the others continue in the race in the hope of becoming Korea’s next top model. This is not the first time the cable network brought in a foreign format. It introduced the Korean version of the highly acclaimed “Project Runway” and received rave reviews from fans.
“The benefit of working on a foreign format is that the audience is already aware of the show. This helps them feel more comfortable with the program and so it’s easier for them to connect with the show faster, which is a big plus for us,” Lee said. Model Jang Yoon-ju was also a smart choice, as the 29-year-old has a fun and likable character, along with the body and soul of a true model. “(The staff) gave me the nickname ‘warm charisma.’ I think it was because when I judged I become a scary and strict teacher, but then off set, I try to be friendlier and offer them tips and advice just like a big sister,” she told the press.
Helping young and aspiring models rekindled her own memories as a struggling young model looking for a big break, and her experience and know-how will naturally help the contestants find what they are pursuing.
“I realized that I too was in the same position. I was terrified of other people’s glances but learned how to overcome that fear,” she added.
The press got to watch the edited version of the first two episodes, and indeed, it was funny, witty, sometimes heartwarming, but mostly entertaining. The some 1,000 applicants were as colorful as the judges, ranging from students, young moms, photographers to even transgenders.
Creative directors Woo Jong-wan and Park Hyung-jun, fashion designer Logan, Jang, editor-in-chief of W Korea magazine Lee Hae-ju got together to pick 24 contestants, and just like the original program from the U.S., ruthless and straightforward comments went back and forth.
The most ruthless judge may have been Woo, and after the screening, the fashion director explained with a smile that it was “a piece of advice from an older brother” and that he hopes “both the viewers and contestants will not take anything personally.”
The Korean version of the show had it all: the top model bus, the shiny and colorful judging room, the professional photographers who were open to express their opinions about the girls and even the trendy outfits of the host Jang.
“Showing the exterior is what models do for a living. But in order to move the body, you must move your emotions as well. If you don’t, there is no message or meaning. You have to control your mind and emotions before you try to control your body,” Jang advised. “The show will help both viewers and contestants understand this theory. You have to know fashion and also realize your talents and potential, not just the body and outfit.”
Will “Korea’s Next Top Model” create a stir like the U.S. original? It looks like it has all the right ingredients, but viewers will have to wait and see if the local staff have managed to bring the edgy and addictive aspect of it as well. The show starts airing Sept. 18 at midnight. email@example.com.
No woman's body shape is identical and while you might despair at your ability to only gain and lose weight on your bum and boobs the chances are that your friend would gladly trade in her muffin top or back fat for a wobbly backside and heaving bosoms. Body shape and where we store fat is generally down to genes but sometimes stubborn pockets of fat can be due to an underlying health issue. Read on to see what your body fat says about you.
Problem area: Stomach If you always seem to end up with a paunch after a particularly unhealthy week it could be down to your stressful lifestyle. When we're stressed our bodies produce too much of the hormone cortisol which causes the body to store fat. Couple that reaction with too much comfort eating and you've got a recipe for fast weight gain. To help your body relax and deal with stress in healthier ways, try meditation and exercises like Yoga. Simply taking a five minute break from your desk when things feel like they're spiralling out of control can also help you gain some perspective and stop you heading to the vending machine.
Problem area: Knees and calves Chunky knees and unsightly ‘cankles' are not only bad news for your wardrobe, they're also a key indicator that you don't have enough growth hormone and that you are not getting enough sleep. Another reason for puffy legs could be water retention so drink plenty of water and cut down on wheat to beat the bloat. You should also try getting a couple of early nights every week or if you're finding it hard to switch off, drink some valerian tea which is so effective it's known as nature's Valium.
Problem area: Hips and back There's nothing worse than seeing bulges of fat poking out beneath a too tight bra strap but rather than forking out a fortune on new lingerie you could just try cutting out carbohydrates. Fat build-up in these areas is a sign that you are producing too much insulin and is also a warning sign of diabetes. Switch to low-GI carbohydrates such as wholemeal bread and pasta and cut out sugar to lose weight in these areas.
Problem area: Thighs, chest and upper arms Bingo wings, bigger boobs and wobbly thighs are all signs that you are producing too much oestrogen. This can come from the type of contraceptive pill you are taking and from some chemicals in plastics which mimic oestrogen causing fat build-up. Speak to your doctor about switching pills and if you're always refilling your plastic bottle of water then switch to a glass one.
Problem area: Sides Hate those spongy bits when your ribs finish? Thyroid hormones can cause fat to gather in this area and can be caused by heavy metal poisoning from tap water, metal fillings and fluorides in toothpaste. Invest in a water filter and keep it topped up in the fridge and make sure you're consuming plenty of fibre and flaxseed to ensure you're getting rid of metals from your body.

Ever Wonder What Foods Have No Carbs Followers of the Atkins diet are familiar with the term "low carbs" and "no carbs". Those who participate in this diet seek out foods that are low in carbs and high in protein. Foods such as poultry, fish, eggs, and meats contain very low amounts and often no amounts of carbohydrates. Meats that are processed are an exception to this rule, however, as they are typically processed with sugar. Salad vegetables are also popular no carb or low carb choices. Following is a list of no carb foods for you to enjoy. Keep in mind, however, that unless your doctor has specifically prescribed a no carb diet for you, you do need to incorporate healthy carbs into your daily diet. • Water: Water is essential for your body's health, and not only is it free, but it is carb free! Drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day will help your body with digestion and keep you hydrated. • Meat: Most meats are zero carbs unless they are processed and include fillers like sugar. To keep your fat level down, grill or bake the meat of your choice but avoid frying. • Vegetables: A half cup of vegetables like spinach, lettuce, bok choy or celery are all zero carbs, but not all veggies are low or no carb choices. In fact, vegetables like potatoes are very high in carbohydrates. Summer squash varieties are low in carbs while winter squash is not so don't assume all squash is equal when it comes to carbohydrates. • Cheese: There are several cheeses that are very low in carbs. For example, Monterey Jack and gruyere have only 0.1g per three slices. Other cheeses low in carbs are cheddar, fontina, and muenster. Other items, such as butter, oils, vegetable shortenings, tea, parsley, mustard, club soda, diet drinks, gin, rum, vodka, whiskey, and even some whipped cream have zero carbohydrates as well. Remember to check with your doctor, however, before you switch to a low carb or no carb diet.
The lowest-carb fruit is.... WATERMELON! It contains 4g of carbs in a 50-gram portion. One-half cup of diced watermelon contains 5.5g of carbs.
The lowest-carb vegetable is.... ARUGULA! It contains 2g of carbs in a 50-gram portion. One cup of arugula contains 1g of carbs.
Note: To help you visualize a 50-gram portion, here are some examples: 10 grapes, 1/3 of a medium sized peach, 1/2 cup chopped celery, 35 blueberries, or 2 extra-long spears of asparagus.
Burning 200 Calories 1. Gardening – cutting, weeding or raking for 40 minutes can really burn off extra energy. You also manage to keep your garden looking good for those hot summer days. If you don’t have a garden, why not help out an elderly neighbour with their gardening choirs. 2. Dancing – take a night out and hit the clubs with your partner, rather than going for a slap-up meal. Try to dance gently for ten minute sessions, and go for this five times during the course of the night. This should help to rid you of 200 calories. If you don’t feel you or your partner can dance, then simply copy what others are doing on the dance floor. 3. Wash up – complete the washing up after each meal for 5 consecutive nights. If you have a dishwasher then give it a rest and do it yourself, using a dishwasher less will also save energy and contribute less to carbon emissions. 4. Clean out – if you don’t fancy washing dishes, then try cleaning out old cupboards. A good hour of this should be enough for 200 calories. Cleaning out a garage will also add a great energy deficit to the equation. 5. Gaming – try playing new and exciting games. Board games, cards, or even playing those play station types can help burn off the energy, even if it’s just from all the excitement of beating your kids at their best! 6. Stairway to heaven – make it your goal to walk up and down your stairs for a total of 20 minutes each day. This can be done sporadically over the course of a day. Although, make sure you are fine to attempt this kind of activity before trying it. Maybe start off doing a few minutes each day and build up. 7. Dressing up – Get out all your old clothes and try them on. This can be fun and within an hour you’ll burn up to 200 calories. 8. Shopping – go shopping for an hour, just looking around or window shopping can help burn off extra energy. 9. Let it all out – punching the hell out of a punch bag or a cushion can really build up energy demands, plus you get to let out all that frustration from the stress of everyday living. Even small minute sessions for a total of half hour can be enough. 10. Go bowling – bowling with the family for an hour can be fun and you’ll burn off 200 calories. 11. Dog choirs – take the pet dog for a walk. Forty- five minutes should be enough. 12. Pet dog - when you get that dog back from your walk, then wash him! Half-hour should be enough for 200. 13. Hula-hoop – using a hula-hoop for 40 minutes total can really burn them calories away. 14. Light stretching - Try a stretching routine for half-hour before a bath. 15. Swing away – Swinging on a swing is great fun and a way to burn 200 calories for every hour spent enjoying yourself. We are never too old for a swing! 16. Horse around – go horse riding for an hour. 17. Jacuzzi life – Sitting in a hot Jacuzzi or steam room for an hour will help you burn off excess energy. 18. Massage – go get yourself a massage for an hour, maybe not 200 calories but it’ll be up to 100 plus. But also what would be better to look forward to? 19. Paint a room – painting will help burn away energy, over 200 calories for every hour. Isn’t it about time you looked at doing up the rooms? 20. Rearrange the house – Moving furniture around can burn off tons of energy. Just an hour will burn more than 200 calories. Just be careful of heavy furniture and always have someone help you!
