Nicole Scherzinger Talks About Her Struggle With Bulimia

nicolescherzinger We all know that Nicole Scherzinger has an amazing body and we probably all envy it, but what we just learned was that her body has struggled through bulimia. Scherzinger battled with the disease in her 20’s revealing to British Cosmopolitan;

“I didn’t think anyone knew in my group or in my family because I hid it that well, I was so ashamed.  I knew it wasn’t normal or healthy because I was hurting myself through this cycle of disordered eating.  It was my drug, my addiction.  It’s an endless vicious cycle.”

Nicole has never been shy about showing her body to the world, but she’s kept her bulimia a secret until now.  The singer knew she needed help when her manager found her blacked out on the floor.

“I had started losing my voice, I couldn’t sing at shows, and then I remember my manager finding me passed out of the floor in Malta or in the South of France.  I thought, ‘I’m going to lose everything I love if I don’t love myself.'”

If you’re struggling with bulimia, Nicole wants you to know that you can get past it;

“It robs you of living your life.  But you can recover and you can get rid of it forever.  I did and that’s why it’s so important for me to share my story.  I felt so alone… but I made myself so alone.  You hide it from the world, you isolate yourself.  But you can beat it-do not give up because you’re so special and you’re meant for such great things.”

One thing about the rich and famous, they know how to work hard and play hard too! Holidays are always a fun time, but when you  suddenly step on the scale and your regretting over-undulging at that BBQ, you may say to yourself “it wasn’t really worth it!” To beat the BBQ Blues, we take some tips from some celebrities who know to have a guilt free holiday.

The reality star knows the importance of putting in work in the gym, she lost a total of 55lbs pounds since having baby North. She admits, that losing the baby weight was the hardest challenge she has faced in life. Kim explains the type of workouts she likes to do saying;

“I like to mix it up. I do Pilates, Barry’s Bootcamp and hikes with my daughter in the stroller. It’s really hard to push it uphill!”

I really feel that you need to kind of listen to your body and what your body is telling you to eat. So I was a vegan for about two years. 

 

This Holiday take some tips form these two beau’s and get in a good sweat, and be picky at the bbq to prevent any post BBQ Blues! Have a Happy and safe 4th of july!

Wendy Williams Is Turning 50 & Loses 30!

pinkww1

 

How you doin’ Wendy?

From the looks of it the New Jersey Talk Show Host is doing pretty well. She is turning 50 in just a few weeks and has lost over 30 lbs!  Usually known for her opinions on all the latest celebrity gossip, Wendy is not one to bite her tongue. But in celebration of her upcoming birthday, she presses the pause button on the celeb talk, and dishes on some more serious matters; getting older and her desire to live a healthier lifestyle.

 

See what she had to say from an excerpt from Parades Mind your body column;

 

Wendy, how do you Mind Your Body with what you eat?
I turn 50 on July 18, and I feel fabulous. When I was 25, 50 seemed so old, but I wouldn’t trade 50 for 25, 35, or 45. Life is good! I lost 30 pounds in preparation for 50 and took two years to do it. I haven’t been this light on my feet since ninth grade. I’m making little changes in life and going to the gym consistently twice a week. I hate the gym, love food, eat a lot of protein, but don’t deny any food. Yesterday I had a big steak salad that was mouth-watering. Today, I started with eggs. For lunch I had steamed vegetables from last night’s Chinese food order. I’m obsessed with ranch dressing powder and I sprinkle it on eggs, hot popcorn, and those steamed vegetables. I’m also a calorie counter and take a lot of time shopping at the grocery store, reading labels.

 

What about your physical activity?
I do a one-hour session twice weekly that incorporates weights and Pilates. My goal at 50 is not to gain muscle, but raise heart rate. And I don’t want to slump as I get older.

 

What could you do better for yourself?
To add a third day of activity, I could walk in my beautiful neighborhood, but I don’t. I could also do better with my candy intake, but I’m like a kid. And it’s odd, because I’m not a dessert person really. But I like Jolly Ranchers, three or four of them at a time, and I like bubble gum when I could chew dainty Dentyne. I do brush my teeth twice a day.

 

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned about health so far?
It has to be to drink a lot of water, because it’s good for your body and makes your skin gorgeous. Your skin is the first thing people see. Always wash makeup off and moisturize, and you don’t need to spend $200 on a moisturizer. Good skin doesn’t have to be expensive!

 

Wendy is always keeping it real! Looking great girl!

 

What do you think of Wendy’s weight loss? Can you tell the difference?

Rick Ross Loses Over 100lbs Doing “RossFit”

Screen shot 2014-06-27 at 6.23.03 AM

 

It seemed like it was just yesterday when fans were concerned about Rick Ross’ health. He suffered two seizures shortly one after the other last year. Even rapper 50 Cent commented on Rick Ross’ health scare in an interview with Angie Martinez, stating Hip Hop doesn’t need another loss due to being over weight, like Big Pun;

“If a person has a seizure twice, they’re not really [taking care of themselves]. You can look and see he’s not conscious of his health. We lost [Big] Pun like that. I don’t wish death on nobody…It’s early age for you to be having two seizures.” 

Counting all that money I guess wasn’t enough for Rick Ross’. It seems as if he realized he can’t make that money, if he doesn’t have his health. After being introduced to a trainer, and learning he needed to change his diet, he realized it was time. There was no specific weight loss goal, but he knew it was time to make that change for the better;

“It was just time for me to tighten up a little bit, you know what I’m saying. As far as, you know, me working out…I have no destination, no specific weight.”

 

 

Recently Ross’ has been popping up doing interviews, and performing on stage looking healthier than ever! Losing an easy estimate of over 100lbs, this Maybach rapper has defnitely been putting in work. He claims he doesn’t run on the treadmill for hours, he does something that he likes to call “RossFit”;

“I do this sh-t called CrossFit. I call it RossFit. Earlier this summer, Reebok had introduced me to a trainer, and what he turned me onto was, let’s say, for instance, if you got on the treadmill, and you did that sh-t for 30 minutes. Yeah, you burning calories, but you could be doing something that’s burning calories and building muscle at the same time. So, it’s like you working out for a shorter time”.

As for as his diet goes, he says he know incorporates healthy foods including fruit;

“But now, they, they, you know, they give me fruit to eat. I forgot what fruit, you know, tasted like. I eat pears now and sh-t like that”.

I love the fact that even previous to his weight loss, he still had enough confidence in his self to take his shirt off on stage. But I love it even more that he took charge of his health even though he was secure with his weight. Cheers to health Ross!

“The Divorce Diet” Helped Khloe Kardashian Lose 30lbs!

fashion-bomb-daily-khloe-kardashian-get-the-look-stampd-one-piece-bathing-suit-beauty   Khloe Kardashian has been looking greater than ever these days, and I’m not just talking about the big smile that’s been on her face. After going through her very public split with her husband x NBA player Lamar Odom, Khloe lost 30 pounds. For some break ups cause people to gain weight, they will reach for the ice cream pint, instead of the gym (like her bro Rob Kardashian.) but for this Kardashian, she took her butt to the gym.

As a certiefied Personal Trainer, and after much inspection, it seems to me that Khloe Kardashian weight loss can be attributed to  “The Divorce Diet”.

Wondering what the divorce diet is, check it out below;

1. Get your aggression out! Break ups can hurt, but please no more tears on your pillow! Instead of letting the pain and anger build up inside of you from being done wrong by your x, take it to the gym like Khloe and take it out on the bags, boxing bags that is.

Khloe; “I love to box. Boxing is really fun, and it’s such a stress reliever. I’m just so busy having fun, I forget that I’m working out; 45 minutes go by and I’m dripping wet.”

2. Become obsessed You have to change your thought pattern, it’s no longer about him, now its about you! Become obsessed with the gym. It’s a great way to keep your mind busy, your body busy, and putting the focus back on caring for yourself.

Khloe says;”“I’ve definitely become obsessed with working out!” 

3. Workout with your friends. Grab your sisters or friends and go for a hike, take a cycling class. There’s nothing better than burning calories while you have people surrounding you that love you, support you, and are always by your side.Khloe admits thats what she does, alone with her sister; Continue reading
