Lea Michele: ‘I made an extreme effort to be as disciplined as possible.’ (Celebitchy)
I appreciate it when a celebrity really owns their sh*t. Self awareness is severely lacking among some of the star elite, so that's why I'm grudgingly coming around on Lea Michele. Lea recently published a memoir and self help book of sorts called Brunette Ambition. She's 27 years old, she knows she's competitive, focused and […]

Questions and Answers
Im almost 15 years old, and i want to start a healthy diet, along with exercise.
Im about 107 lbs and 5'2"
When i say diet, i mean HEALTHY eating habits, not a hardcore diet that is counting calories and stuff.
It would be great help if you can help me make a plan for working out. And tips to keep me motivated..
Thanx for you hellpp!! :3.
Wow, how does one answer something like this without writing a book. Hmm, lets start with the basics:
1 – You dont really want to follow a strict diet, because you will only end up breaking it.
2 – Eat what you like occasionally otherwise you will lose enthusiasm and pleasure for losing weight and end up eating too much bad food at once. A bit of ice cream once every other week wont kill you.
3 – Dont go crazy counting calories but read up on it so you know how much you should have.
4 – Avoid sugar, cholesterol, artificial flavors, and other bad items.
5 – Avoid caffeineted drinks such as soda or sugary drinks like fruit punch and juices.
6 – Eat more meals spread out over the course of the entire day. Dont eat large meals in one sitting.
7 – Working out: Do cardio about 4 days a week and weight training (with light dumbells) 2-3 times a week giving your muscles at least a day or two to heal.
8 – Dont weigh yourself every day.
9 – If you need help, dont be afraid to ask
Good foods: apples, broccoli, oranges, onions, carrots, salmon, beans, seaweed, lemons, garlic.
Bad foods: solid oils, fried food, flour or white bread, white rice (eat brown instead), sugar, canned soup, salty foods, alfredo sauces, processed meats, fatty foods.
* Always eat breakfast.
Phew, there is so much more but I have to leave work in a few minutes. If you need more advice, feel free to e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey, so i'm 14, my height is aroundd 4'10 and i weigh about 93.8 pounds. I really want my legs and stomach to be more toned and to lose a bit of weight so I thought I should probably think about a diet too, but all the ones i've found include like fish/eggs etc. But I really don't like that soo yah haha. Does anyone have any good, healthy diets they could recommend? And also any workout routines to get a more toned stomach and legs?
You're only fourteen and you're a healthy weight, don't go crazy! Just do a few jumping jacks, push ups, sit ups, and maybe go for a short jog each day and you'll see results! As for a diet, just eat in moderation. You can eat the things you like, just eat no more than the recommended serving size. Good luck
I am trying to figure out a healthy diet/workout plan in order to lose weight in order to get down to a healthy BMI. I am female, 185lbs, and 5'4''. According to my height.. I should be 145lbs in order to be in the normal range for a healthy BMI. I have tried maybe diet and workout plans, but can never seem to lose much weight, only about 5lbs, then nothing more, which is very discouraging. Any advise would be great.. Thanks!
Try eating more fruits and veggies in place of other fatty meals, like junk food, cookies, or high calorie meals. Try eating more grapes, clemintines, apples (with vanilla yogurt), blueberries, hummus (it sounds gross but it's really not, especially with Wheat Thins or Food Should Taste Good brand whole grain chips! I personally like garden vegetable or tomato flavored), granola, low-fat yogurt, low-fat string cheese, LITE whole wheat bread, 100 – calorie popcorn / kettle corn bags, steamed broccoli with a buttery garlic sauce etc. I also snack on South Beach Diet oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, they're good AND pretty healthy!
Incorporate more exercise into your daily life. Take the dog for a 20 minute walk, do jumping jacks while watching TV, do laps around the block, or the house for that matter. Don't let yourself sit down for too long. If you can, get a gym membership. I use an elliptical for 30 minutes 5-6 times a week and it works great for me.
And don't eat out of boredom! It's a nasty habit to break, TRUST ME. Whenever you feel like eating, watch a movie with no commercial breaks so you don't have time to get up, call a friend, read a book or magazine, or get out of the house, away from the food.
I recently lost weight, about 20 lbs, and what really helped for me was planning my meals. I planned when and what I was going to eat, and made sure the calorie count was 1400. It may be different depending on your needs, but never go under 1200! Whatver you do, don't let yourself stray from your plan. Write it all down or type it out and leave it up on your computer so you don't forget, that's what I do.
And don't "DIET". Because the moment you go off your "diet", you'll regain the all the weight you lost quickly, believe me. Instead, make "healthy living choices."
And allow yourself a cheat day every now and then. Life is too short! If you restrict your body of all the "good foods", you will one day EXPLODE and eat everything in sight. Trust me!
PS; nick_name137 copied my post and is trying to post mine as her own. So if you see her, let me know (:
Good luck! Hope that helps (:
