5’8” Amanda: “My goal is 100 lbs”

FFN_BynesAmanda_SheriffDUI_PremiereFF_040612_8954917 - 5'8'' Amanda: "My goal is 100 lbs"

At request, here’s an ‘interesting’ quote coming from troubled star Amanda Bynes (26) that Us Weekly posted as part of their ’25 Things You Didn’t Know About Me’ list:

I gain weight quickly so I need to work out constantly. I moved to New York City and I love it! I lost 4 lbs. since I moved. I’m 121 lbs — my goal is 100 lbs.

Note that Amanda is 5’8” and her goal isn’t a healthy one, since 100 pounds at her weight would imply having a BMI of 15.2, which is considered very underweight.

Model Chrissy Teigen Admits to Preparing for Sports Illustrated with Juice Fast

Here’s the story from Daily Mail:

Sports Illustrated model and food lover Chrissy Teigen has revealed how she very reluctantly prepares for her “daunting” bikini shoots.  The 27-year-old, who is set to marry John Legend, explained to Cooking Channel TV that she hates dieting “so much I can barely explain without getting angry, but I don’t walk onto the set of a swimsuit shoot without having that whole week prior being a pretty strict regimen.”

She doesn’t elaborate on what the “strict regimen” is, but her Twitter feed and food blog indicate that juice cleanses are behind her swimsuit-ready physique. On December 11, the brunette tweeted a photograph of a large pan of mussels captioned with the description: “Served with bok choy and thai sea bass. Now we say goodbye to food and hello to juice for 1 week!”

Miss Teigen also goes into juice cleansing in more detail on her blog So Delushious! She wrote last October: “It’s honestly not something I push and advocate for, nor do I want to lose all credibility as someone who LOVES food. Trust me, I already got the, ‘you write a food blog and you don’t even eat’ sh-t.

Would I EVER do a 10-day juice cleanse if I didn’t have to be in a bikini… sometimes only half a bikini… in highly circulated magazines? Holy sh-t, NO. I love my body. Well, I love my in-clothes body. Loving your bikini bod is a whole other ball game. And getting in a bikini when you just completed 3 weeks of not just eating but FEASTING every single day is a little daunting to say the least.”

When she eats a lot she doesn’t put weight on in the right places. “Skinny legs. Skinny (untoned) arms. And a poof in the belly,” she explains.

To gear up for modeling assignments she says that she opts for the ten-day Blueprint moderate cleanse, which consists of three green juices a day, one spicy lemonade, one pineapple, and one cashew milk drink.

“The Blueprint cleanse is great because it provides all-around nourishment. You are consuming around 20 pounds of fruits and vegetables (well however much juice that would make at least) every single day,” Miss Teigen writes.

“I made the decision last night… I would allow small amounts of raw nuts, raw veg, a couple pieces of sashimi in moments of real hunger, avocado. That’s. All. I needed to make the adjustments necessary to keep meeee happy.” She later writes that she was unable to sleep properly because she “missed the feeling of going to bed with a full, heavy belly. That feeling is soothing to me.”

What do you all think of Chrissy’s ‘shape up fast’ methods?

Beyonce has been opening up a lot lately about her amazing birth experience and she insists that she gained a lot of weight during her pregnancy (even though the pictures show otherwise). This week, the star told Oprah thew following:

‘I did a show three months after giving birth, which was crazy. I had clearly never given birth, and I didn’t know that I would gain 60 pounds – 57 pounds.’

You can watch Beyonce herself saying it in a video here!

Kate Upton for Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue (Gallery)

Kate Upton managed to score the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition for the second year in a row – but the blonde beauty is dealing with lots of body-related criticism – from Page Six:

Upton’s on the cover for the second year in a row, and has bizarrely been bashed by some for her curvy body. “Everyone has the right to their own opinion,” she told us. “I am in a good place in my career, so it’s all right.”

While Upton brushed off criticism, her fellow bikini babes came to her defense. “Everyone is hyper-critical of women, and it’s got to stop,” Alyssa Miller said. “We should be embracing all body types.” Chrissy Teigen added, “I don’t think people realize we read everything.”
