Did Jessica Simpson get fat again!?

Jessica Simpson Performs (January 25, 2009/JustJared.com)

A favorite pastime of mine is looking at Google Trends.  It tells you what are the top 100 searched terms during the hour.  Usually it consists of non celebrities in the news, stories seen on The Today Show or random things like Nuyorican because MTV was airing True Life: I'm a Nuyorican during that hour.  Today, "Jessica Simpson Fat" is a hot trend.  

I wanted to know why so after doing a little bit of research I found some pictures from a concert the blonde pop tart sang at this weekend.  Simpson appeared at the “99.9 KISS Country Chili Cookoff” yesterday at CB Smith Park on Flamingo Road in Pembroke Pines, Florida. 

First and foremost, her outfit was horrendous.  I don't care if she gains weight or loses weight, but doesn't she have people giving her advice on what to wear?  I mean, if she did gain a little bit of weight, high waisted pants should be the last item of clothing she should have chosen to wear.  She may have gained 10 lbs over the Holidays, after all she does live in Texas, but the clothing added another 10. 

Here is my prediction for the year 2009 in the life of Jessica Simpson. 

  • Gain weight until photographed and blogged about. 

  • Find a diet company willing to pay for an endorsement. 

  • Exercise with personal trainer 5 days a week. 

  • Eat healthy. 

  • Lose weight. 

  • Call People magazine to tell them about the diet that helped changed my life.

  • Use recent publicity to plug album and make more money.

Also, does anyone remember Tyler from MTV's Real World Key West?  Well as it turns out he is a Pilates and Dance instructor right in Somerville.  I had the chance to catch up with him and get some leg slimming ballet moves that you can do in the kitchen or while pumping gas.  It's a nice break from typical squats and lunges that you can almost anywhere!  Check back for a link to the video when it becomes live or just go over to YouTube and subscribe to my channel!

Scare yourself thin! Top Secret Fat Loss Secret

I have just found the most disgusting weight loss advice web site. It claims to have the top secret fat loss secret. I hope it's not true but they have almost made me a believer.

"The Reason You are Fat and Unhealthy is Because You Have Disgusting Plaque and Horrible Little 'CRITTERS' Living in Your Guts!"

Did you lose your lunch yet?

This is harmful Plaque (right) supposedly is found inside everyone. The site claims that, "to keep from getting sick and to be able to maintain a healthy body weight you MUST get rid of it now!"

"If you don't, it will eventually cause you to not be able to lose weight (regardless of how much you diet and exercise!) and eventually it will kill you!"
These are harmful Parasites (below) - Everybody has them. If left to live and breed inside your stomach, small and large intestines and colon, they will eventually cause you to puff up, gain lots of weight, get sick more often, and take many, many years off your life!

They use your body as a 'Food Storehouse' and so they can live and breed by the millions. But now it's time to flush them out and down the toilet for good. If you don't they will just make you fatter and much, much sicker!"

Did Oprah lose the weight before Obama's inauguraion?

Five weeks ago, Oprah promised to lose 15 pounds by President Barack Obama's inauguration.  Did she do it?   She asked trainer Bob Greene to whip her into shape in just a week!  Possible on The Biggest Loser but in real life was this fete achieved?

Her trainer, Bob Greene, told OK! magazine: “Oprah knows the rules.  I have five weeks. She’ll be aggressive and lose the weight in a healthy way… She needs an hour of cardiovascular exercise six days a week. Crunches are done every day. That’s the core exercise.”  He’s also planning to throw in 15-20 minutes of strength training on three to four days a week.

According to ThatsFit.com, 38.3 percent of readers thought Oprah would be able to lose the weight.  Another 30 percent said they believed she would not.  So, now that the day is over, what do you think?  How do you feel she looked?

My only issue with Oprah Winfrey and weight is that she's an immediate icon, saleswoman for every book she reads, program she tries however even when the diets fail people still follow their leader Oprah.  Would you follow Richard Simmons if he still weighed 300 lbs?  Everyone is convinced that she knows all the answers. Well folks, I'm sorry to say it but she doesn't hold the weight loss answer.  She is a true testament that you can know all the facts yet lack the will power and energy to see them through.  

My trainer, Stephen Cabral and I decided to modify what Oprah said she was doing for a workout in the January edition of O Magazine.  You know, the one she talks about being over 200 lb!  Here is our workout video that we think is better than Oprah's and we also think she should take our advice into account!

Boost Energy Workout!

Although the days are getting longer, it seems I've been getting more lethargic by the day.

I'm trying to save money by skipping my daily Dunkin' Donuts cup of joe but I need another way to kick my butt into focus mode. I asked body transformation expert Stephen Cabral to help me find a way to boost my energy levels without tapping into my wallet.

Caffeine can give you a boost but can also lead to crash so these two exercises are great to get your mind and body moving. You're going to wake up your entire body.
Do these exercises until you are fatigued but not to failure.

Exercise 1: T-Twist Pushups: Get in plank position on forearms. Lift right arm up and twist hips open towards the right. Feet should be about a foot apart and fall like dominoes. Hold for a full breath count, and return to your forearms.

Lateral Raises: Standing shoulder distance apart, lunge out with your right foot to the right, keeping the left leg straight. Bend down and come right back up pushing off the right leg. Make sure to really push through your butt to get the glutes going.

Can Exercise Cure a Hangover?

Should you workout when you're hungover? Some people feel the need to workout every day, but if you're hungover it may make you feel worse than you already do! However there are some exercise moves that can make you feel better. Of course we are not recommending to go out and get wasted, but if you have one too many drinks, this is a good after the fact remedy.

The Night Before

If you're reading this prior to your night out, drink lots of water and start off the night with some food. Also take 50 mg of B6 vitamin before you start drinking. Take another 50 mg before bed with some Smart Water. Don't take any acetaminophen's, as they can damage your liver when mixed with alcohol. Also remember that clear liquor is best when trying to avoid that morning headache.

The Morning After

So you wake up and feel like death? First, take a look at what type of shape you are in. How much did you have to drink the night before? How bad do you really feel?

If you must squeeze in a workout keep the intensity level lower than usual. Don't do high intensity or interval training.

You're probably dehydrated so you should drink electrolyte filled water to help rehydrate your body. Gatorade is loaded with sugar so try a calorie free version or skip the artificial sweeteners all together and grab a smart water or other non flavored electrolyte water beverage. Check out some great tasting drinks in this taste test video here where the Diet.com employees tried a variety of calorie free fitness drinks.

Stay away from bent over exercises where your head goes below your knees, like a downward dog or bent over row. You should also refrain from heavy lifting squats as well.

Stick to body weight exercises, or light calisthenics like jumping jacks. Get your blood flowing with something like high knees or if you can get to the gym walk on a low incline on the treadmill to get your blood flowing and start feeling better.

Bottom line, don't drink if you need to get in that hard core training or are trying to lose weight.

Do you need to detox? Yoga Move For Detox

Many celebrities are fans of detox diets like Gweneth Paltrow. She recently told Goop.com that "I like to do fasts and detoxes a couple of times during the year, the most hardcore one being the Master Cleanse I did last spring. It was not what you would characterize as pretty. Or easy."

If you resolved to lose weight this year, welcome to the first day of the rest of your life. If you are going to succeed you must commit to a program that is sustainable for the rest of your life. Does a detox diet sound plausible? No but they are safe to do once in awhile. Although they are not medically necessary (doctors claim your body can do this on it's own), many people still love to do it and swear by it's energy boosting effects.

Paltrow admits, “As I do not wish to subsist on lemon water in the middle of winter, I asked my doctor, a detox diet specialist, for the guidelines he uses to achieve a good detox that is not as hallucinogenic (in a bad way) as the Master Cleanse. What it came down to was this: you can detox easily and effectively while you continue to eat as long as you are cutting out the foods and other substances that interfere with the detoxification process."

If you can learn to live a healthy lifestyle the rest should all just fall into place.

Eating well and exercising will come naturally but it can be difficult to get to this point of euphoria. Detoxing can help. I'm not talking about the master cleanse diet, or even the eat clean diet, but rather simple detoxifying yoga moves.

A few simple yoga moves can really open up your body and prepare itself for a body overhaul. Get rid of the toxins and unhealthy chemicals you've been feeding yourself all these years and start fresh. This video demonstrates a simple move that will help jump start your new years resolution to get back into shape and start living life to the fullest.

But just who needs to detox? Do you need to detox with diet or do you need to detox with yoga and other forms of exercise?

FYI: Gweneth cuts out dairy, grains with gluten, meat, shellfish, anything processed (including all soy products), fatty nuts, nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and eggplant), condiments, sugar and obviously no alcohol, caffeine or soda. She does however eat salads, fruit smoothies, chicken, soups and lots of water.
