Shun, Shag, Or Marry: Reality TV Weight Loss Shows

It’s January, which officially means weight loss reality TV season is in full swing. I’ve been so busy watching shows about dieting that I’ve barely had time to binge on cookies. I guess that’s the point. There’s “The Biggest Loser,” “Shedding for the Wedding,” “Ruby,” “One Big Happy Family,” “Heavy,” “I Used to be Fat,”…

Raven-Symoné Doesn’t Like The Way People Look At Her New Thin Body

“I thought I looked fabulous before and nobody else did. So, whatever … Actually, now I wear bigger clothes because I don’t like the way people stare at me. I liked it before. Now, you’re just looking at me for the wrong reasons. Before, you were actually looking at me for a real reason.”

Gained Some Holiday Weight? Good. That’s What He Wants

’Tis the season for peace, joy and weight gain. After Christmas and New Year’s, we will all jiggle a bit more. Women will feel like kicking themselves for their weight gain and will suffer from self-loathing that lasts long past the chocolate free-for-all of Easter.

What women don’t know is that many men get…

Does This Jonathan Adler “Thinspiration” Pillow Offend You?

Some would argue that the slogan “Nothing feels as good as skinny feels” promotes anorexia. But ask a Weight Watchers member, and she might say this mantra, which I’ve heard repeated in meetings, kept her on track to healthy weight loss. I can see both sides of the debate, especially since decorator Jonathan Adler, who…

All I Want For Christmas Is … A 7-Pound Weight Loss

According to an essay in today’s Daily Mail, my desire to drop 5 to 10 pounds is about as common as a winter cold. Seven pounds, it seems is the magic number — the “holy grail” of weight loss. It’s an amount significant enough that, no matter what one’s starting weight, clothes will fit differently…

The 30-Day Cellulite Challenge: Day 22

It’s day 22 of the 30-Day Cellulite Challenge, which means there’s only about a week left, and things are looking good. I’ve been using Karin Herzog’s Dynamic Duo Anti-Cellulite Kit for about three weeks, and it seems to be working. By the way, at the end of my experiment, we’ll be offering a deal o…

Mila Kunis Was Grossed Out By Her Body While Filming “Black Swan”

“I could see why this industry is so f**ked up, because at 95 pounds, I would literally look at myself in the mirror and I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ I had no shape, no boobs, no ass… All you saw was bone. I was like, ‘This looks gross.'”

Mila Kunis on her…

The 30-Day Cellulite Challenge: Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the 30-Day Cellulite Challenge in which I attempt to get rid of my cellulite, and we all spend a couple of minutes a day contemplating the current state of my rump. After I announced this groundbreaking experiment yesterday, several of you made comments along the lines of, as meredith806 put…

The 30-Day Cellulite Challenge: Day 1

So, a while back, I wrote a post about how I was going to attempt to get rid of my cellulite, and let you all know what happened. In the interim, though, life got in the way. My butt wasn’t my primary focus; other things were. Now, I’ve got plenty of time to think about…

What’s The Craziest Diet You’ve Ever Been On?

Twinkies for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Sounds kind of gross (and, OK, delicious) to us — and it’s also the diet Mark Haub used to shed more than 27 pounds. The Kansas State University nutrition professor ate a steady diet of Twinkies to prove that it’s calorie consumption — not nutritional content — that make…

I Lost 20 Pounds And I Feel Fine

While, as a commenter recently noted, I am not a “TMI blogger,” I have occasionally blogged about some of my, er, weight issues over the last few months here at The Frisky. Back at the end of May, I wrote a post about how I was fatter than I’d ever been in my life. I…

MTV’s Newest Reality Show? “I Used To Be Fat”

Drunk off the success of “16 & Pregnant” and “Jersey Shore,” MTV is adding another reality TV show to its line-up: “I Used To Be Fat.” The show follows overweight teenagers between their senior year of high school and their freshman year of college as they drop the pounds to reveal a “new” self. Each…

Crystal Renn Explains Weight Loss

“In the past, I avoided exercise because it brought back terrible feelings. I wasn’t ready. And I was scared that maybe I was going to be addicted again. That’s a fear that goes through your mind, whenever you’re getting over an addiction or a disease like anorexia, yeah, I absolutely was worried. But then I…

Breastfeeding Is Like Slim Fast In Diapers, Says New PSA

Burning 500 calories a day without any cardiovascular exercise? Sign me up!

Oh wait, you mean I have to go through childbirth and then breastfeed a baby? Damn it, New York State Department of Health. There you go burying the lede.

Kelly Osbourne Says Girls Are Nasty To Her Now That She’s Lost Weight

“My weight? People don’t realize it’s as shocking to me as it is to them. When they open up a magazine and they see it… I’m still getting used to seeing me like this and the changes … it’s weird! … Girls in Hollywood don’t like you because you become competition. They have started to…

Jennifer Hudson’s Fiance Is “Pleasantly Adjusting” To Her Thinner Bod

“I do like where I am. I like seeing a difference each and every week, so we’ll have to wait and see … [My fiance is] getting adjusted to it. I’ll say that, pleasantly adjusted.”
Jennifer Hudson has dropped 80 pounds on Weight Watchers, and dishes that David Ortunga isn’t completely used to her new…

Estonian Weight Loss Clinic Uses Fat Girl And Skinny Girl As “Before” And “After” Models

An Estonian weight loss clinic used two pretty blond women — one large and one skinny — to advertise its techniques by having them walk around wearing T-shirts that read “Before” and “After.” Clever gimmick, I’ll admit. But it’s degrading for the bigger girl to walk around all day being fat-shamed as the…

Girl Talk: My Secret To Weight Loss? High Cholesterol!

I knew that I had gained some weight in the past few years. While I wasn’t 100 percent happy with my extra pudge, I didn’t feel motivated enough to lose it. Ten pounds wasn’t really that much. My boyfriend accepted me no matter what, and even my mother couldn’t tell I wasn’t as skinny a…

How To Get Back On The Diet Track

Summer’s tough, guys. There are so many weddings and birthday parties and barbecues filled with cake and buffets and beer and chicken wings. We’ve already told you — we’re ladies who eat. Depriving ourselves of our favorites (ice cream and, again, CHICKEN WINGS!) wasn’t going to cut it, so we’re learning to balance our sometimes-not-ideal…

Girl Talk: Falling In Love After Losing 100+ Pounds

In my early 20s, I wore size 24 jeans and my enormous boobs demanded an H-cup bra, a letter no woman should have to associate with lingerie sizing. I couldn’t fit into restaurant booths or through the subway turnstile. I even once held up an entire roller coaster ride at Six Flags so I could…
