A weekly feast of celebrity diets with a side of fitness trends

What did you nosh on this morning? A huge trough of Fruit Loops… Or are you the type to tote a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch around with you throughout the day?

Sorry to be the GRIMM REAPER OF FOOD but… those cereals among many others that line grocery store shelves are, well… scarier than some of the costumes you may see on Halloween!

Atrocious amounts of sugar, sneaky, hidden trans fatty acids, fiberless carbohydrates and added fillers all hide in these processed foods and contribute to that “muffin top”, “bagel butt” and “donut thighs” you don’t want.

If you weren’t planning on being a human cinnamon bun for Halloween… 

Watch the latest episode on how to pick a HEALTHIER cereal, if you must eat cereal at all!

Everyone associates October with…

A. Kids dressing up as ghosts, goblins, witches, princesses, Justin Bieber… and running through the streets because of their sugar highs, in the pursuit for the house that doles out the BEST CANDY!

OR

B. Adults dressing up as naughty nurses… cavemen… the President or something that shows as much skin as possible. LMFAO – How about a naked Obama running around the street in search of some Gold Chocolate Coins? (You can thank me later for that BRILLIANT costume idea). 

Costume or real? You be the judge!

While you all may LOVE buying MONSTER-SIZED bags of candy at your local drug store (they’re for the trick-or-treaters, right? Uh dude… it’s October 9th)… What you should really be focusing on this month is that it’s NATIONAL SEAFOOD MONTH!

Fish and seafood are “candy from the sea”! Imagine handing out clams and oysters to that kid dressed up as Optimus Prime!

But seriously, fish and seafood are not just delicious, they’re packed to the gills with health promoting properties…

  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids: These essential fats keep your heart and brain healthy. Two omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Our bodies don’t produce omega-3 fatty acids so we must get them through the food we eat. AKA: EAT FISH!
  • Selenium: You may not have to be as scared of mercury as you once were when you thought about scarfing down a boatload of fish. You see, large ocean fish also tend to have higher concentrations of selenium, a trace mineral essential to human health that bonds to the mercury and prevents it from being absorbed in your brain. (To be on the safe side though, limiting consumption of king mackerel, swordfish, shark, tilefish, and some tunas may still be a good idea). 
  • Fish are also WONDERFUL sources of protein and vitamins such as D and B2 (riboflavin), calcium and phosphorus and a great source of minerals, such as iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium

So which fish are BEST to scarf down (because they’re highest in omega-3 fats, sustainable, etc), whether it be in your sushi roll, at a seafood buffet, your kitchen or a fancy restaurant? 

Wild Alaskan King Salmon

Sardines

Sable Fish/ Black Cod

Arctic Char

Herring

Mackerel 

While those six fish deserve top honors,

Tuna and…

Anchovies…

Also deserve some time in the spot light as well…

So what will you be handing out to trick-or-treaters this year? I’m thinking ANCHOVIES! 

Whoa, whoa! GiGi Eats Celebrities is posting on a Sunday?? GiGi must be really hungry. 

Okay, I am going to stop referring to myself in the third person and get straight to the point. 

I wrote a guest blog post on Kodjo Workout’s web site and I want ALL OF YOU to check it out… And then of course subscribe to his blog as well as mine!

I was sitting in Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s kitchen watching her stir a vat of cabbage soup the other day when she revealed a bit of inside scoop about her days on the set of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

She told me that her vampire ass-whooping moves (you know, the ones that motivated you to take up karate) weren’t the actual cause of “death” to the blood suckers that kept popping out from behind headstones. Instead, she told me that they all perished because of one very potent repellant that she always had “on hand”.

Sarah, I am sorry, but I am going to have to disclose your “secret” because… Well, it’s just plain stupid and everyone must know (after all, Halloween… It’s all about the prevention against vampires, unless of course… You’re any of the sexy ones from True Blood or wait, those two from The Vampire Diaries… Mmmm, YUM! 

I wouldn’t be a good friend if I wasn’t truthful, right?

I’M HUNGRY!!!!

When Mr. Hungry comes crawling on into your stomach, all you want to do is reach for a sleeve of chocolate chip cookies or Oreos, am I right?

Of course, doing this is an invitation for trans fatty acids and processed carbohydrates to enter and trash your body…

Don’t you DARE think you’re doing yourself any favors by inviting their 100-calorie counterparts to the shin-dig going on in your stomach instead… They are just as horrendous as the fully loaded originals … To find out why, check out the latest episode of GiGi Eats Groceries!

Mr. Hungry… SUCK IT!

HERE COMES THE BRIDE… ALL DRESSED IN… HER WORK OUT OUTFIT!!!

The second tabloids catch win of celebrity engagements, their headlines scream “HOW TO GET Jennifer Aniston‘s SO AND SO’S HOT WEDDING BADONKADONK…” or “HOW TO NOT LOOK LIKE TRAIN WRECK Amanda Bynes* SO AND SO ON YOUR WEDDING DAY”.

YES! I have FOUND my future wedding dress! My mom is going to be THRILLED!

So you may have seen these headlines when you were waiting in line at the check out counter of your local grocery store… Or at the bookstore (wait, do those even exist anymore?)… Or maybe as you were paying for your naughty Home and Garden magazines at a street corner magazine shop, but did you actually pick up one of these gossip magazines and sneak a peak? 

Yeah, you did… Don’t lie!

Sadly, you were probably so embarrassed for digging your nose in one of those magazines that you don’t remember exactly what the celebrity’s (who was getting married at the time) alleged tricks were/are.

NEVER FEAR – GIGI IS HERE!

Let’s run through (ha! See what I did there?) a few celebrities and how they got even more HYPER-FOCUSED on working out to get in EVEN BETTER SHAPE for their nuptual…

Kate Middleton: Everyone was obsessed with Kate prior to walking down the aisle. Wait, everyone still IS obsessed with her. I myself… Am not, but that doesn’t mean I can ignore her actually rather healthy routine to kick off some pounds (that she really didn’t need to).

  • Kates performs cardiovascular exercise such as biking and rowing as well as high interval training (walking for two minutes and running for one, and continuing to do that for 30 to 60 minutes). This chick has always been rather active, which only helped her look taut in her gown.
  • It was rumored that Kate was on the Dukan Diet, a four-phase high protein-based diet, where you don’t have to measure your food or count calories. Kate was probably running to the toilet every five minutes, because this diet requires LOTS of water.

Jennifer Aniston: Okay so this chick is perfect. Not quite sure how she can enhance her already healthy life style to make herself look EVEN BETTER… But apparently she is…

  • Doing a lot of downward dog and warrior (aka: yoga), running on the treadmill like a maniac (she’s a maniac… maniac!) and attending spinning classes where she can channel her inner, uh, Lance Armstrong (doping too?).
  • Jen also sticks to the Zone Diet (oh snap, you would know this if you watched EPISODE TWO of GIGI EATS CELEBRITIES!) where she eats… QUIZ TIME: leave a comment below, what is the premise of the Zone Diet!  Clearly this woman has a maid living in her kitchen pantry to help her measure out the proportions of food she should be eating.

Carrie Underwood: This hoe-down hottie (LMFAO! Carrie and her husband totally do si do all the time… IN THE SACK!) married Mike Fisher in 2010. And what do you know, Carrie was voted “Best Celeb Body of 2010” by Fitness Magazine, all thanks to…

  • Lots of lunges, squats and weight training as well as cardiovascular exercise, be in on the treadmill, bike, elliptical, or a random group class like Krav Maga, every morning. Apparently she has so much more energy to take on the day after accomplishing a work out (ah! A girl after my own heart!). 
  • Carrie has also been a vegetarian for quite some time. She eats lots of vegetables, high fiber whole grains and protein rich foods such as quinoa in order to grant her the title of “best bod”. Oh and she CUT OUT SUGAR!!! See guys, it works! Cut the white powder of DEATH out of your diet!

To all you ladies who are getting married soon… It’s time to get MOVING and taking a look at what you’re eating.

I take you, Tiramisu… to be my husband…?

It might be a good idea to keep a fitness and diet journal. You can then take notes about how you feel and really evaluate if your current diet is helping or hindering your chances of achieving Kate’s bum, Jen’s guns and Carrie’s gams! 

Look at that apple bottom!

Man do I have your back right? Now you don’t have to sneakily grab a rag mag off the rack and quickly flip to the page where it screams how Kim Kardashian “slimmed down” for her… 18th wedding (?), because I will do the dirty work for you!

If you’re curious to know about anyone else’s wedding body regime, don’t be afraid to ask me… You can even create a code name in the comment section below if you really are ashamed of wanting to know, CLEARLY I AM NOT! ha ha! 

This post is dedicated to my sister Daniele who is actually getting married this Saturday, September 22! Good thing she knew all of these tips and tricks because DAMN IS SHE LOOKING FINE! 

LOVE MY SISTER!

*Amanda Bynes is NOT getting married, she has just been a firery train wreck lately. 

 

Ah ha ha, totally laughing at the title of this blog post… I am just so creative, no? Can you guess what condiment I am discussing today?

Any ways… As you can tell summer is drawing to a close. No more thong bikinis… Nut huggers…

Sad right?

Oh wait, maybe you still wear these things around your house.

The changing seasons doesn’t mean you’re going to be putting the hot dog and hamburger condiments away though so it would be really smart for you to watch the latest episode of GiGi Eats Groceries.

I expose… and I mean EXPOSE one condiment… and it’s not even wearing a thong? Okay, I have no idea where that thought came from, but go with it.

Check it out! It’s quite scandalous!

AND SHARE IT WITH THE WORLD!
