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.

 

This week we spotted celebs both on the east coast and west coast in their sweats heading for the hills, or the gym putting in some extra time in work before their 4th of July weekend approached.

 

Kim Kardashian was spotted in NYC hair up, chillen with no make up on leaving the gym with a large bottle of water, in what it looks like rehydrating after an intense workout schedule. 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!”

 

In addition to her workouts, she adheres to the Atkin diet which consists of High proteins and low carbs. It was rumored that Carbs were banned from her house before her wedding to avoid all temptation. We having a feeling this holiday Kim will stick to the kabobs, and a burger with no bun!

 

On the other side of the states, Lea michelle was spotted taking a hike by her lonesome thru the Hollywood hills. This actress sure knows how to get her act together, especially when the 4th of July is approaching. She tends to stick to workouts that she enjoys, admitting that being outdoors is where she has the most fuun putting in a sweat;

I love hiking… love being outdoors, I love bike riding. Just stuff that’s fun! 

Contrary to Kim K., Lea Michelle may not be packing on the meats to her plate, She was a vegan for two years. Although she goes back and forth with her vegan lifestlye, she explains her preference of food choice doesn’t depend on an up coming role or holiday, but what her body tells her;

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!

“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

Biggest Loser Trainer Bob Harper Says Diet Trumps Exercise In Weight Loss

20130826-065642.jpg

So how important is dieting when you are trying to lose weight? Very Important!

According to “The Biggest Loser” trainer Bob Harper:

“It is all about your diet. I used to think a long time ago that you can beat everything you eat out of you and it’s just absolutely not the case.”

Harper has assisted people in losing weight, both on “The Biggest Loser” and off cameras, he even has DVD workouts and a book called “The Skinny Rules,” which gives advice on dropping excess weight.

But aside from promoting a healthy diet, Harper’s big part of his exercise regimen consists of lunges and core-strengthening exercises.

Harper says that this exercise helps people to get their heart rate up and once doing so, they can be able to burn fat.

Dr. Mark Kelly, an exercise physiologist at the American Council on Exercise believes that indeed diet can lower weight, but exercise allows the lower weight to stick.

Well we just want to say keep up the great work Bob, we hope to speak with you here at Fit With Fallon!

Well Known Weight Loss Programs Losing Customers

20130815-174800.jpg

It looks like some of the weight loss programs are actually losing some weight, the wrong weight….it’s customers. Oh no!

According to Yahoo, the popular weight loss programs such as Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, and Weight Watchers are losing money.

Jenny Craig’s sales have declined the first half of the year, Weight Watchers revenue is down 3.7 so far in this year, and even worse, Nutrisystem’s sales have declined since 2008, dropping 20 percent.

The blame? The economy.

The other blame….free apps! Apps such as My Fitness Pal has the same concept as Weight Watchers, but is free.

Weight Watcher’s Chief Financial Officer, says:

“The issue with free apps is that they’re taking trial [members] out of the market.”

The Spokesperson for Nestle (which owns Jenny Craig) Edie Burge  says:

“The entire weight-loss category is going through a transition during a difficult economic environment.”

The unfortunate part is that the Lean Cuisine meals, which Nestle makes, have also declined in sales.

NutriSystem Chief Executive Dawn Zier does not blame the internet. She believes that people only come to Nutrisystem because they want something more structured and was unable to find so elsewhere.

Aside from the commercials, Nutrisystem recently started selling five-day weight loos kits at Walmart to boost it retail sales.

On the other hand, weight loss programs such as Herbalife, Medifast, and USANA Health Services have done well so far this year.

Well, we hope that there is a level playing field, because as much as obesity is on the rise, these programs are a way of hope.

20130815-172701.jpg

Retirement is doing a body good, literally…That is for former NFL player Jeff Saturday.

It is the norm for NFL players to pack on the weight after being away from the sport, but that is not the case for Saturday.

Just recently, Saturday was at a Football event looking rather lean. It was reported by ESPN that Saturday weighed 295 pounds last season, but now weighs in at about 230-240 pounds. Not bad for retirement.

Great job Saturday, hope you will make that come back to league!

Former “Parks and Rec” Star Heckled For Posting Buff Selfie Pic

Former “Park’s and Rec” star Chris Pratt has nothing to worry about, or does he?

He recently took to the Internet by posting a selfie of himself posing his new hot bod and showing duck lips, but didn’t get the exact supportive response that he expected. Instead, his friends made fun of him. Hmmm not so nice, guys!

Pratt dropped his chubby frame and started working out for his new role in the upcoming Marvel film “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

Yahoo! Interviewed Pratt and his co-star Zoe Saldana at the Comic-Con event in San Diego this weekend, and Zaldana showed support by expressing the positive aspect of his weight loss journey:

“I feel like it would be nothing but inspiring, and encouraging, and empowering for people that are struggling with their weight.”

When Pratt was offered the role he knew that he had to make some dramatic changes, he told Yahoo!:

“I got the role like six months ago, and they were like great job, but you’re too fat. And I was like, ‘alright, I can work on that!”

Believe it or not, Pratt also gave up drinking beer for six months to get that great bod for the role.

Good job giving up the beer gut, Pratt. You look hot!

UFC Fighter Mark Munoz shows slimmed down physique

MunozBeforeAfterPics

Like most people, UFC Fighter Mark Munoz turned to food for comfort when he was going through difficult times in his life.

Last summer, Munoz was knocked out by Chris Weidman, he also had a foot injury in which he needed to recover, which prevented him to keep in shape.

Munoz said on his website: “Battled through injury, self-doubt, and depression. I turned to food for comfort and what I found was more heartache. A never-ending cycle of “eating because I was sad and because I was eating. I had to find peace and comfort in my faith in God. He shaped my life.”

And Munoz’s faith definitely helped him to bounce back. Starting from January of this year to late June, he went from 261 lbs. to 199 lbs, which is not far from his fighting weight of 185 lbs.

What a great turnaround for Munoz!

Eddie Murphy’s Daughter Reveals Modeling Horror Stories Of What Models Are Doing To Stay Thin

20130619-124147.jpg

Our buddies over at FitPerez recently reported the low down on what really goes on in the modeling industry and It’s not as pretty as it may seem:

Model Bria Murphy, Eddie Murphy‘s daughter, recently divulged some horror stories of what she’s personally seen and experienced in the fashion world.

The 23-year-old made her confessions during a segment on Good Morning America, saying:

“Lots of girls get addicted to drugs and anorexia, it’s — there’s a whole list of things, because it’s a lot of pressure to be perfect. I’ve heard of people eating the cotton balls with the orange juice … they dip it in the orange juice and then they eat the cotton balls to help them feel full, because the cotton’s not doing anything. It’s just dissolving. And it makes you think you’re full, but you’re not.”

Bria admitted that the pressure gets to her sometimes as well. She said:

“Oh yeah, absolutely … I’m a small girl naturally, but I can gain weight. And I’m going through little hormonal changes and my body’s changing and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I’m gaining weight this week, I’m losing weight next week.’ It’s your job to go into a room … and some people will just say no without an explanation, and some will be like, ‘Oh, your nose is too big. Your butt’s too big. Oh, your legs are flabby.’ Like, they’ll just go on you, ‘Oh, you need to tighten that up.'”

We can’t imagine how hard it must be to hear stuff like this day in and day out! But Bria must have steel will because she’s not letting any of that stop her!

She admitted:

picstitch-8

Snooki sure has been progressing with her weight loss since having her baby, but not everyone is impressed with her accomplishments.

Just recently, she posted a pic on Instagram showing how she is taking her health serious, so far losing 42 pounds. But critics

Snooki responded: “Too skinny my ass. #FIT.”

The “Jersey Shore” star has been following a strict diet and workout routine to get her the great body she has now. Way to go, Snooks!

Snooki is not the only celeb that slammed critics for being “too skinny,” Kendall Jenner too has also received the same criticism.

Jenner just recently posed for Harper’s Bazaar magazine for the April 2013 edition, but during an interview with Harper’s Arabia, she opened up about the taunts about her weight, saying:

“I’m constantly criticized for being too skinny. I’m trying to gain weight but my body won’t let it happen. What people don’t understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat, it’s not a nice feeling.”

We agree, Kendall.

Regardless of the harsh criticism, we still think that Snooks and Kendall look amazing! Keep up the great work girls!
