Screen shot 2014-07-17 at 2.03.28 PM

 

 

Olympian LoLo Jones, known for her  long jump between sports, she went from running track to bobsledding. In order to do so LoLo had to pack on the pounds, not just a couple of pounds, but thirty pounds to be able to hang with the other bobsledders.

Talk about all you can eat, this female athlete had to adhere to a strict 9,000 calorie diet to pack on the weight, including eating double bacon cheeseburgers and three 1,000 calorie protein shakes a day.

After competing at the Olympics in Russia for the American team, she decided to make the leap back over to track. This meant it was time for her to take off the pounds.

LoLo explained in an interview with ThePostGame.com even though she was happy to see the weight come off,  she was sad to see her booty go.

“It’s really tough, because I thought I could lose all the weight and I didn’t. I am still about 7 lbs overweight. And it’s not the way you want to keep it.. at first I had that nice bobsled butt, that I worked so hard to get, and I was like Yes!, this is going to stay, and all this other stuff is going to go…and the butt was the first thing to go and I was like NOOO!!! That’s the one thing I wanted to stay.”

Well LoLo if you win another medal in track, it will be well worth it! But consuming 9,0000 calories a day. Now that’s what you call dedication.

Screen shot 2014-07-25 at 1.42.40 PM

If you’re getting sick of that same bland & boring protein shake,  shake it up with this island inspired Pina Colada Protein Shake!

This protein shake packs lots of flavor and is less than 250 calories and has 16g of protein. Not only will it feed your muscles after a good workout, but it will also satisfy your sweet tooth.  Breakfast never tasted so good!

Try out my recipe below;

Pina Colada Protein Shake

  • 1 Scoop vanilla protein powder 
  • 1 pineapple ring
  • 1/2 small banana
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut flakes
  • 4-6 ounces of water 
  • 1/2 cup of ice

Add all ingredients in your blender. Blend until smooth and your mouth will think you are in the Bahamas!

*Tip: Freeze your bananas and you won’t have to add ice to your shake.  Also, you can substitute the water and add in pineapple juice or Almond milk. For whey protein options, I like Herbalife’s French Vanilla (low-calorie & great taste.)

 

What’s your favorite protein shake recipe?

Dwayne Johnsons aka The Rock reveals his team Hercules diet plan.

He recently had to get into the best shape of his life (you would’ve though he was already there) for the role of “Hercules” and he wanted to share with all his instagram followers what his intense diet regimen consisted of to get there.

The ordinary person would eat 3 meals a day, including a couple of snacks. but if you want to pack on some lean mean muscle you need you need to add a whole lot more to your meals.

The rock revealed he had to eat seven times a day, and it wasn’t including snack it was  seven meals a day. Each meal consisted of either chicken, fish, protein powder, and egg whites. Along with rice, potatoes or oatmeal for carbohydrates and broccoli or asparagus seems to be his veggie of choice.

Dwayne explained this was no fad diet. He had to commit to this particular food plan for 22 weeks. His 14 egg whites a day, and over 3 pounds of lean meat helped him really turn in to the  greek God Hercules.

Check out the #TeamHercules meal plan below;

“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

Ron Finley: A Guerilla Gardener In South Central LA

2-1198x799

Ron Finley plants vegetable gardens in South Central LA — in abandoned lots, traffic medians, along the curbs. Why? For fun, for defiance, for beauty and to offer some alternative to fast food in a community where “the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.”

Ron Finley grows a nourishing food culture in South Central L.A.’s food desert by planting the seeds and tools for healthy eating.  He couldn’t have said it better;

“If kids grow kale, kids eat kale. If they grow tomatoes, they eat tomatoes. But when none of this is presented to them, if they’re not shown how food affects the mind and the body, they blindly eat whatever you put in front of them.”

The Naked Truth About “Naked Juice”

20130809-034606.jpg

Naked Juice, is not so “naked” after all.

The Pepsi Co. product that has claimed to be “All natural” and “non – GMO” (non- genetically modified organisms), has been deceiving customers long enough.

The company that has brought you products like Coca-Cola and Frito Lay chips, has recently settled a 9 million dollar lawsuit out of court, because it had misleading labels. Naked juice contained GMO ingredients as well as synthetic and un-natural products in its juice.

All the vitamins listed on the bottle are actually added content, and not from natural fruits in the juice. There was also an added ingredient called calcium pantothenate which is a compound that is synthetically produced from formaldehyde.

The word formaldehyde may ring a bell, It’s the chemical that is used in high school and other anatomy classes on dead cats and other animals. The chemical formaldehyde is used to disinfect the animal and preserve the dead organism.

Yikes! This smoothie is anything but 100% natural.

And to think Proposition 37, a right to know what’s really in your food ballot in California didn’t pass because companies like Pepsi Co. donated more than 2.5 million dollars to stop it.

Next time you go to check the label to see what’s in your food, know that you still may not really know what’s in it. Now I know why so many people have turned to making their own juices.

Advice from Kerry Washington: Don’t Look At A Scale Too Much

Kerry Washington has one hot body and is not shy when it comes to sharing her secrets. In fact, over the past years, Kerry has told multiple magazines different ways she stays in shapes and the one thing she never does that keeps her confident. In 2007, Kerry told People Magazine,

She also told People Magazine at the time,

“I watch what I eat, I do. My body is really sensitive so I’m very conscious of what I put in my mouth. I try for the most part to eat things that are going to make me feel better, not worse.”

Jennifer Aniston Gets Sick After Eating McDonalds

jenanistonJennifer Aniston has one of the most amazing bodies for her age and she definitely does not try to hide that. Thanks to her organic and healthy eating habits, she has a body every women in her forties wishes for. But thanks to the lack of “healthy fast food” places in this country, she turned to eat something she never eats: McDonalds.

Jennifer and her soon-to-be husband had gone on a road trip and the only thing around to eat was McDonalds. Even though Jennifer eats healthy 24/7 and does yoga daily, she was really hungry and needed to eat. Jennifer explains her experience after eating a Big Mac with the New York Magazine,

“I’ll never forget when Justin and I were on a road trip and we were so hungry. The only thing around was McDonald’s. I think I ordered a Big Mac. Wow, my body did not react well to that! It was like putting gasoline in a purified system. I am always trying to eat organic and natural foods, so that just made my stomach turn and made me feel terrible. And I think what you put in your body, as well as stress, is reflected in the quality of your skin.”

She also gave the magazine an idea of how she keeps her skin flawless and tricks to have a body like hers.

“I can never stress enough to my friends that they must do as I do … hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Drink lots of water, get enough sleep, exercise, and eat a clean healthy diet, whenever possible.”
