The Latest Diet: Drink Beer! (No Problem!)

I feel like I’m always reading some new study about the best kind of alcohol to drink to help maintain your figure or even lose a few pounds. Last I remember, I was celebrating the study that found that red wine keeps you slim. But apparently that is no longer the case.

I Lost 10 Pounds By — Well, I’m Not Entirely Sure

Every so often, I’ve written a post here and there on The Frisky about wanting to lose weight. Most recently, I wrote about how I have a big butt, and while I may not have found a solution to bring about world peace, I did find skinny jeans that fit. The only reason that I…

Girl Talk: My Mom Wants Me To Lose Weight

It had been a bleak year. I started taking anti-depressants and was slowly putting on weight, as the side effects had warned. This alone was not a problem: guys always told me I was a little too skinny and that I had a bony butt, so I actually enjoyed having a juicy badonkadonk for the…

We Tried It: ShaToBu, Calorie-Burning Shapewear

I’ll just come out and say it: I wear really ugly underwear. We’re talking, like, epic granny panties here. As a basic type of girl, I’m just not into the sexy thing, so a lot of the time I figure I might as well add some ugly on the inside by wearing some slimming underthing…

Chew On This: French Grazia Recommends The Chocolate Diet

Crazy idea #2,384 from the folks at the French version of Grazia magazine: the chocolate diet. Oui.

Did Queen Latifah Get Photoshopped Thinner In Her “Just Wright” Poster?

I was poking around on Apple’s iTunes Movie Trailers site this weekend, when I noticed the poster for Queen Latifah and Common’s new movie, “Just Wright,” looked a little, well, just wrong.
