Strike A Pose

Today is probably the only day of the year when all straight men across the country will switch from Sport Center to CBS without putting up a fight.

Okay wait, I take that back, Shark week also tends to cause this shocking sight as well. 

Today is also a day where almost all women across the country will fantasize about flaunting their swagger in leafy bikini bottoms and pasties over their nipples.

Gut Therapy

Let’s face it…

Your gut probably looks like…

Or

All thanks to

And lots of…

But very little…

While I may or may not be saying “I told you so,” (way to watch my Thanksgiving video, seriously) that doesn’t mean I’m not willing to help you help your gut.

(However if you look like Paris Hilton when you get out of the car… I will just point and laugh. Dofus.)

You see, when you detox your gut (which is comprised of you liver, kidneys and intestines) from all the fat globs and excess alcohol you pounded last week, you will enhance your immune system, thus lessening your risk of getting sick this winter.

Looking a little under the weather there Hill.

Why don’t you try and avoid continuing to live the Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears lifestyle throughout the holidays.

Instead…

  • Lay off the alcohol, drugs and tobacco as much as possible. Tell Cheech and Chong that you’ve got to cool it. 
  • Take a stress break every so often. You don’t need to be first in line to buy the newest Ferbie? (Yeah, apparently those are back)
  • Cut down on over-the-counter drugs. Only ignore this if your in-laws are REALLY pissing you off.
  • Drink like a fish (water that is). Wait, do they even drink? I need a marine biologist!
  • Eat high fiber fruits and vegetables. Time to buy some Beano!
  • Shun fried foods and processed foods. No more deep-fried Twinkies for you!

Wait, hold the phone. These tips actually sound like the lifestyle you should be living every day, not just after a gluttonous meal.

So if these tips were a pony, jump on them and go for a ride!

Okay, that didn’t make any sense at all…

Wee!

Twilight: Breaking High Blood Pressure

So I have to come clean about something…

I never have seen, nor will I ever see any Twilight movies. It almost pains me to even mention the damn trilogy.

Some of you may stop reading right now, unsubscribe from my blog and block all pages pertaining to GiGi Eats Celebrities after learning of this “horrid” news… But some of you might actually subscribe to my e-mail list, YouTube channel, Tumblr, like my Facebook Page and follow me on Twitter (and maybe even send me fan mail??), knowing that I am not one of “those girls” (what ever “those girls” actually means… LOL).

Obviously since I have never seen these movies before, I have no idea what they are about (except that there are three – or soon to be three, 17-hour long flicks filled with werewolves that make out with vampires and then gallop away on unicorns?).

Alas, the third and FINAL (thank god) movie comes out November 16 (I just heard a girlish squeal… Not quite sure where that came from).

So why on earth would I be bringing up this movie, considering this blog is all about food, fitness and celebrities… Obviously vampires only drink blood (man, really sucks that they can’t eat sushi) and werewolves eat… road kill?

THIS however is the best vampire movie… EVER!

Well vampires got me thinking about blood… and blood got me thinking about blood pressure.

Do you ever think about your blood?

Now that’s a weird question.

But honestly, it is an important question to ask because having high blood pressure is almost as “wonderful” as getting bitten by a vampire (and not “swoon-worthy” Edward – Oh, I guess I know his name too!) 

Wait, this really gets people hot and bothered?

High blood pressure, or to get all medical, hypertension, raises your heart’s workload and can cause serious damage to your arteries. Over time, uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease.

Generally, if your blood pressure reading has a top number (systolic) of 120 or lower and your bottom number (diastolic) is below 80, you are doing just fine. However, if your blood pressure boils above those numbers, your risk of the above ailments rises.

If you have reached your boiling point, there are ways to turn down the “burner”…

  • Exercise at least 30 to 60 minutes most days of the week
  • Reduce your salt intake (but don’t eliminate it entirely)
  • Eat potassium to counterbalance your salt intake
  • Stop smoking, don’t start smoking and avoid second-hand smoke
  • Lose weight if you need to
  • Cut back on alcohol. Men should limit themselves to two drinks per day, while women should only imbibe in one
  • De-stress with yoga, massage, meditations or any other activity that helps you relax
  • If you currently have high blood pressure, caffeine may aggravate your levels so limit your consumption

You know what else can lower your blood pressure? Going to the movies! (Shit, did I just plug Twilight? NO! Go see Wreck-It Ralph!) 

Although, when you see movie ticket prices, you may just have a heart attack! 

Have you ever seen these Twilight movies? Are you a fan? Have you seen any amazing movies lately that you recommend others see? 

Baby Your Breasts

Ah ha ha ha! The title of this blog post sounds like I am about to talk about celebrities breast feeding their newborns!

(PS: did you see the name of Uma Thurman‘s new baby… Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson… I just went cross-eyed.)

While I have definitely come across a few too many pictures of celebs… Ahem, Gwen Stefani (you totally clicked on that link, you pervert! LOL)… Letting their children suck away, like they would a sugar laden lollipop, in public no less, that is NOT what this post is about!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month if you weren’t already aware… (really, all months should be though)

And roughly 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Gentlemen, don’t think this type of cancer discriminates based on sex, you guys too have a 1 in 1,000 chance of developing the cancer. (For more statistics on breast cancer, click here).

Obviously breast cancer is no laughing matter. The only time breasts are actually a laughing matter are when they look like this…

Guess Who?!

Alright stop laughing for a second so you can take a minute to remember those who have be affected by breast cancer, whether it be you, a loved one, a friend, celebrity…

Here are a few celebrities who have been hit with the cancer, yet were strong enough to combat the intruder!

Christina Applegate

Sheryl Crow

Giuliana Rancic

Suzanne Somers

Cynthia Nixon

 Richard Roundtree (see, men are affected too!)

There are so many more celebrities that have been affected and have beaten the disease, which should give all those who may be struggling or know someone who is struggling hope!

It’s time to baby your breasts! In order to do so… follow these preventative measures!

How To Ward Off Vampires

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?

Bust a Move Brides To Be!

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.
