Pinterest Infuriates Women Everywhere – Thigh Gap Warning

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I’ve gotten a ton of notes today from readers regarding pinterest’s new warning that pops up when you search for ‘thigh gap’ on their website. Here’s a screenshot:

pinterestUGH. Can you say insulting? How about infuriating?

Earth to pinterest – you don’t have to have a mental disorder to have or want a thigh gap or find them attractive. There are millions of women in the world with natural thigh gaps due to their bone structure. There are others who are able to get a thigh gap with narrow hips by using healthy dieting and exercising tactics as displayed in my book. There are millions of men who find thigh gaps attractive and sexy!

When did society come to this? It’s now abnormal to want to have a slender and slim frame! Women who actually care about their bodies and what they put in it get accused of having anorexia or bulimia or being ‘obsessed’ for not wanting to eat pizza/cake with the rest of the overweight/obese population. And why would you when the evidence of what’s to come if you do indulge is staring you right in the face.

We’re told, ‘You can have one cookie – it won’t kill you! You can stand to gain some weight?” Are we supposed to trust the opinions and standards of those who are killing themselves with food and would probably give their left arm to be instantly thin (your size or desired size) or if a genie popped up and granted them one wish would change their bodies?

Yeah, pinterest – sorry, but this is not a good look or move on your part! Sure, there are those who might have eating disorders that want thigh gaps, but there are also those who might have eating disorders that want flat stomachs, slim arms, long hair, designer jeans and a billion other things that get searched for on pinterest daily.

Where are the steroid disclaimers / warnings about drug use and hotline numbers for guys searching for six packs and biceps?

Until you put that disclaimer for every single search term, you are offending a huge portion of your users!

 

What do you think?  Do you agree with me – if so let pinterest know!

THE TRUTH: Anyone can get a thigh gap! Dr. Oz confirms my findings

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
1and2

#1 and #2! Thank you for forming your own educated opinions!

This post will be short and to the point because ultimately people will still believe what they want to believe as an excuse to be lazy and not try to do anything about changing their bodies.

It’s far easier to say I will always have fat/big/thick thighs the way I used to lament being stuck with my ‘grandmother’s legs’ (I don’t have granny’s legs anymore, by the way). That way, you don’t have to make an effort and then you don’t feel so bad about having the body you actually really dislike or are uncomfortable with.

Dr. Oz confirmed everything that I wrote about in my book about anyone being able to get a thigh gap. In fact, I thought he broke it down beautifully – those with wider hips will have an easier time achieving a thigh gap due to their bone structure. My hacks will teach you how to get leaner faster and smarter. (e.g. – to lose fat you need a calorie deficit.
** Hunger training(™) enables you to stop the uphill battle of ALWAYS being hungry and makes it much easier for you to create the deficit you need to burn the fat.
** Intermittent fasting (which Dr. Oz extols on his own show) allows you burn more calories for example, by delaying breakfast. Not eating 12 – 16 hours could mean not eating from 8pm to 10am. Should you eat because it’s 7am and you’ve just rolled out of bed? I don’t think so.
** I also have loads of other methods in my book that you are free to pick and choose from. You don’t have to do them all!

He also showed those with narrow hips (like me) will need to lose overdeveloped / bulky muscle in order to get a thigh gap. Now, I will admit he didn’t recommend you do so – because he’s a conventional doctor who has to appeal to a large group of women who need an excuse to remain comfortable and fat.These women don’t like the thought of the thigh gap because they’re against anyone being slim/thin as it makes them look bad. I get it.

However, unlike Dr. Oz alluded to – losing a little bit of muscle on your thighs is not going to bring your metabolism to a screeching halt. In fact, all of us lose muscle from our entire body all the time! 

To also say that having narrow hips precludes you from joining the thigh gap club with me sitting right there is disingenuous. I mean, I did it and so have countless of my clients/readers!

My book teaches you how to lose and tone down the overdeveloped bulky / muscle that prevent women from having a thigh gap in, again, a smart and healthy way. No starving required. You do this by training strategically: I tell you which exercises to NEVER do and what types of training to do instead, how long to do it, when to do it, etc..

I also reveal how to eat to avoid feeding the muscles you’re trying to get rid of (you should NOT be drinking protein shakes after your workout like body builders do. Realize your body goals are on complete opposite ends of the spectrum).

And that is all. So, while they edited me in order to cast my book as being a potential scapegoat for people who suffer from a true mental illness, which I don’t think every woman is easily susceptible to, I’m still very thankful for the exposure and opportunity to get my message out there to the thousands of people I have since the show has aired, and re-aired. And I’ll be happy when it re-airs again because I’m confident there are a lot more women out there with this problem who are independent thinkers!

If you believe in taking advice from an expert who has actually accomplished what you hope to do rather than accept advice from experts who’ve read textbooks, resist anything foreign/new, and in many cases taken the bare minimum on nutrition/exercise, get my book today!

Watch Me on The Dr. Oz Show! + NEW DVD

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

drozstillstage Yes, to all of you who are asking – that’s me you’re seeing in the previews for the Dr. Oz Show airing tomorrow, February 25th. I was invited to be on the show as an expert on the subject of ‘how to get a thigh gap’ and to defend the rights of countless women around the globe who seek a thigh gap because they find it attractive (just like men find six pack abs and huge biceps attractive and train to achieve those ‘body goals’).

show

Behind the Scenes at the Dr. Oz Show

Luckily, I already had a ton of experience with ‘thin shaming’ and the claim that women SHOULD try to look “strong” “muscular” and “powerful” instead of the way they want to look (feminine, slender, slim) – when Facebook shut down my page because they erroneously thought that the mere mention of the word thigh gap was associated with an eating disorder. Thanks to my lovely readers we set them straight and got the page reinstated! (Like the Page here) You see, I give women way more credit than the other ‘experts’ do. Yes, I’m an expert because I’ve written a 260 page book on the sole subject of how to lose fat from your thighs. I also am an expert and know it’s possible to get a thigh gap without an eating disorder, because I’ve done just that and have helped women around the world do the same. The whole point of my book is to help women learn there is another way! Tune in at 4pm EST to see what I had to say on the matter to America’s favorite Doctor, Doctor Oz – and see if I changed his mind… DO YOU THINK I DID? Also, I’m releasing a workout video called “BYE-BYE THUNDER THIGHS”. DESCRIPTION:

From the Best-selling author of the book, “The Thigh Gap Hack” comes her debut workout dvd, “Bye-Bye Thunder Thighs”. This 70 minute workout is broken down into a 10 minute warm up and cool down, and three 20 minute segments, which includes:
  • 10 minutes of stretching/lengthening and toning lower body exercises meant to release the fat from the cells
  • 10 minutes of cardio and upper body strength training meant to burn the fat you’ve just released and maintain upper body muscles that will keep your metabolism revving
  • 15 – Day Sample meal-plan

YOU’LL LOVE THE WORKOUT & THE RESULTS, GUARANTEED!

Fat Burning Cardio Dance Workout – WATCH ONLINE FREE!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

dubstep-cardio

Who says cardio needs to be boring and brutal?

The latest fat burning cardio dance workout with yours truly is up. This weeks choreographed workout routine is to David Guetta and Akon’s ‘Sexy Bitch’ or ‘Sexy Chick’… and it’s a little different because it’s a dub step version of the song.

The objective with these videos is to make cardio fun. When the music is pumping and it’s fun the time flies, you’re more likely to get your cardio in more frequently, and that means you’ll burn calorie/fat and see the results you seek.

Now, since I choreograph each workout to a specific pop song, they tend to be around 4 to 7 minutes long. Obvious-town, that’s not going to cut it when it comes to burning fat. You need at least 30 minutes of sustained physical activity that gets your heart rate up.

This means you’ll need to do this specific routine a few times over or combine a few of my videos together. I’ll take care of getting your heart rate up with every single one! Make sure you leave a comment on the youtube page or right here letting me know what you think of the workout and how many times you were able to do it through.

Leave song requests as well! NOW LET’S GET TO WORK!

Help! What to do when You’ve Lost your Thigh Gap

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

1Bc2jlt2wyS2YirIf you can relate to the picture, you’re not alone. Nobody is perfect and sometimes in life our diets are not as great as they can be, or we slack off with our exercise regimens.

As a result, our bodies change – and for those hip centric (pear shaped women) out there, the first change they will see is the loss of their thigh gap.

I know, it might suck that a thigh gap can seemingly arrive overnight and pull a similar disappearing act just as quickly. The truth is depending on how long it’s been since you’ve fallen off the wagon, it’s very possible that you can get your thigh gap back in no time.

For example, if it hasn’t been too long (e.g. – one week) and you’ve just been eating a lot more sodium than normal, stopped drinking water, what you may be seeing is the result of water retention. Your body will hold on to the water, and some will be in your thighs, thus making them swollen and closing the gap.

It’s highly unlikely that you’ve been able to put on more than 1 to 2 pounds in the course of a week, so don’t freak out and think you’ve gotten too fat. Remember, it takes about 3500 excess calories to gain one pound of fat.

Bare in mind, if you eat a huge steak and weight yourself right after the scale will say you’re one pound heavier, but as I discuss in the book, that’s not sticking. You’ll get rid of that weight with waste, etc.

Now, if it’s been a few months and your diet has gone downhill (you’re eating fast food, sweets, etc.) and you’re not exercising it’s more likely that you have put on some fat – the sticking kind – and you’ll have to lose it all over again to reveal your thigh gap.

Don’t be discouraged! If you had a thigh gap, or slimmer thighs, in the past you can certainly do it again. It just means that you will have to buckle down and make some changes. I would highly recommend my hunger training hack (I describe it in great detail in the book – GET YOUR COPY HERE), which will allow you to recalibrate your hunger system so you’re not facing an uphill battle with getting your caloric deficit.

How to Spend Your calories Wisely

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Screen Shot 2014-02-09 at 8.21.34 PMThe folks over at wise geek put up an eye opening post regarding what 200 calories look like for different foods ranging from coca cola, to peanut butter, to carrots.

It’s such a great post because it visually demonstrates why you need to spend the allotted calories you have each day wisely. You see, if you are trying to lose weight there’s no getting around the fact that you need to create a calorie deficit. That means, you need to expend more energy than you consume.

However, the food that we have available to us is typically so calorie dense that one can feel deprived or as though they are starving, making it quite difficult to adhere to their caloric deficit.

The pictures from Wisegeek puts it all into perspective. When you see that you can have a full plate of broccoli OR eight hershey’s kisses for the same amount of calories, you start to understand the importance of learning how to spend your calories just as you would your money, carefully!

5 Common Calorie Counting Mistakes You’re Probably Making

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Are you working out and eating right, but still not losing weight?

The amount of calories you consume play a huge role in whether or not you will lose, maintain or gain fat/weight.

Being 100% accurate when logging calories is darn near impossible, but the goal is to get as close to the true number as humanly possible.

Consider the following common calorie counting mistakes unexpectedly being made by many frustrated individuals who may be pondering what they’re doing wrong.

Logging Calories for Raw vs. Cooked – Some foods expand or shrink when cooked and thus logging calories for that particular food without taking into consideration how the food was prepared will lead to inaccurate figures.

For example, four ounces of chicken raw will not be the same amount of calories for four ounces of cooked chicken. When chicken cooks it will get lighter. It’s best to work with the raw weight of a food, as this is what most nutritional labels will represent.

Using Measuring Cups/Spoons instead of a Scale – Measuring cups mislead easily, as it’s possible to compact food into them (resulting in additional calories) and too easy to use “heaping” portions – that’s common when measuring high calorie items such as sugar, flour and peanut butter, but pile the food sky high above the rim of the cup or spoon. Using measuring cups and spoons, while better than eyeballing and visually estimating, can yield up to a quarter more food than using a food scale.

Size Shortcuts – Log into myfitnesspal or two other free calorie database meant to give you a size shortcut for a specific food (e.g. – the calorie content for one serving of something like a  piece of chicken or one corn). You might notice the number will vary. Depend on that number, referred to as a size shortcut meant to make your life a little easier and accommodate those without a scale, and you’d be making a grave mistake. The amount of calories listed for a piece of corn can vary greatly depending on the size of the actual corn.

Not Counting the Oil – When most people prepare their food and log calories, for some odd reason they forget to add in one little thing, that is really a big thing: oil. One tablespoon of cooking oil is usually around 120 calories and as discussed in my previous article, depending on measuring spoons and actual silver spoons will yield stunningly different results. Besides that fact, most people simply aren’t measuring their oil but eyeballing it when they throw it into the pan. That oil gets absorbed into the food and you are indeed consuming it, so remember – measure and log those oil calories!

Trusting Restaurant Menus – A mushroom veggie burger at Shake Shack is listed as 490 calories so you log that into your food diary because it must be true, right? Wrong. The calorie amounts (and calorie ranges) you see listed on menu boards at huge chains and restaurant represents the standard or ideal end product. Each chef or cook is so busy making food that they hardly have time to make sure all the variables are precisely the same, and an extra spoonful of butter, oil, sugar, cheese, etc. can change the caloric amount of the ‘meal’ drastically.

Here’s another interesting tidbit of information – It’s totally legal for companies to be off by a huge percentage (25%) when making their projections for the caloric content of their food product. The FDA completely approves and there aren’t many organizations going around and fact checking these foods. This is why I advocate preparing unprocessed whole foods at home as much as possible.

Beyonce’s Thigh Gap at the Grammys (2014) *I was Right*

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Remember when I wrote a post a little while back about how Beyonce didn’t have a thigh gap but she probably wanted one?

I was raked over the coals for saying so. You see, everyone was going around saying you don’t need a thigh gap because Beyonce didn’t have one and she was being held up as the hottest woman on the planet.

Well, then the 2014 grammy’s happened and lo and behold, Bey came out sporting much thinner legs and something like a thigh gap. *Gasp*

Does this now mean that you DO need a thigh gap, because well, Beyonce felt like she needed one?

To answer my own question, of course not – but as we can clearly see even Beyonce is of the opinion that being thin/slim is desirable… apparently more desirable than having ‘thick’ or ‘full’ thighs or she wouldn’t have touched hers. Can you deny that Beyonce doesn’t look her absolute best (better than she has ever looked even) with a straight face?

And before the trolls come in here and say most men would prefer Beyonce when she was ‘curvier’, please stop deluding yourself. No straight man would throw the svelte version of Beyonce out of their bed because she looks smoking hot with a thigh gap!

Now, let me get to the question you all want to know…

How did Beyonce get her thigh gap?

Well, there could be a few reasons and no one but Beyonce can say for sure.

* Wider Hips after Childbirth – Many women have been known to have wider hips after giving birth to their children. As you know by now if you’ve read any of my other articles on how to get a thigh gap, wider hips will make it easier for you to achieve the thigh gap.

* Liposuction / plastic surgery – Ok, it’s pretty darn obvious to everyone but diehard stans in denial, that Beyonce has had a lot of work done over the years. Professional surgeons have speculated that she’s had a nose job, boob job, work done to her face (fillers,etc) and I am in agreement. If that’s the case, it wouldn’t be too far fetched to consider that Beyonce may have gotten liposuction or body contouring to her inner and outer thighs to achieve her grammy night thigh gap.

* Diet – Some people are saying that Beyonce’s 22 day Vegan challenge is responsible for her thigh gap. I’ll have a post coming on whether begin vegan will guarantee you will lose weight, but it could be that Beyonce’s altered diet caused her to lose enough fat/body weight to reveal the thigh gap that was hidden under her extra pounds.

* Exercise – Beyonce has been on tour for the past year and dances/works out for about 3 hours for every performance. We can all probably agree that she goes hard and burns a ton of calories every night she’s on stage. Additionally, her workout involves a ton of cardio, and as described in my book cardio is great for fat burning – particularly, cardio that lasts at least 45 minutes.

Any one or a combination of these reasons could be the secret beyond Beyonce’s thigh gap during her ‘Drunk in Love’ 2014 grammy’s performance. Which do you think is the most plausible reason?

Back from Vacation – 30 Day Cooking Challenge

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Hello lovelies! In case you were wondering, I’ve been on a 3 week road trip across Ireland and just got back to New York City today.

For the record, I love Ireland and Irish people. I love going on vacation because I walk more then ever when I’m traveling. In New York City, I’m always in my car driving from one destination to the next.

One of the good/bad things about traveling is that you tend to eat out a heck of a lot more and loosen your normal clean/low calorie diet to include treats. Of course, when you eat out you can’t control what goes into the food and you can’t be precise with how many calories you are consuming, and treats tend to contain lots of sugar and be very high calorie.

The great thing about Ireland is that something like 80% of the population are celiacs, so there are tons of gluten free options. 

Generally, I try to stick to the basics (e.g. I got grilled chicken and ate it with a salad at a 7-11 type equivalent called Tesco or Centra or bought soup from the supermarket and heated it up), choose the healthiest/vegetarian meals available on the menu (e.g. in Galway I got the yummiest olive/lentil burger with broccoli/cauliflower and a spicy tomato sauce… and I modified the full irish breakfast by getting egg whites and skipping the sausage/bacon), or cook (a few mornings I made egg white omelets with spinach).

For treats, yes I did indulge a little bit, but I tried to hone it in by opting for aero puddings (so that I would know how many calories I was consuming) and shared desserts with my boyfriend instead of eating the entire thing.

Yes, eating healthy and not gaining tons of weight while on vacation can be tricky to navigate and I was actually thinking about writing my next book about how to do just that. Do you think it’s a good idea? I’d love your feedback on that so leave a comment below.

But back to the main point of this article –

I am going to be doing a cooking challenge where I prepare all of my meals at home for the month of February and I’d like to invite you to join me. You’d be surprised at how much less calories you can consume and how full you can get when you make your own meals. Of course, you’d be entirely shocked at how much fat/weight you lose.

It’s no wonder, as you would never guess how much salt (leading to water retention) and sugar that is unnecessarily added to meals.

I’ll be doing some videos (cardio dance workout as well as some related to the challenge) so look out for that!

If you would like to commit to the challenge with me, pledge your dedication below!

What is ‘The Bikini Bridge’ (the new Thigh Gap) And How to Get it

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

how-to-get-a-bikini-bridge-gap

A new question is circulating the internet. Everywhere, older people completely out of touch with the desires of young men are asking, ‘Is the bikini bridge gap the new thigh gap?”

Now, some of you may be wondering – WHAT IS THE BIKINI BRIDGE GAP?

The definition of a bikini bridge gap is when your hip bones jut forward and your stomach is flat enough so that your bikini bottom band stretches across and is forced to have a gap (hence, it’s comparison to the thigh gap) when lying down (or when standing up).

The gap is between your lower abdomen and the cloth/band of your bikini bottom. Basically, it’s having a flat stomach (gasp*)

The bikini bridge was a prank, a hoax/satirical article that was posted on buzz feed that all the media blogs picked up on and ran with. Yep, all of these journalists totally fell for it hook, line and sinker. I suppose it is sort of like the thigh gap in that the ‘experts’ are already foaming at the mouth and calling it dangerous for girls to want a bikini bridge (basically a really toned and flat stomach).

Of course, now that this word ‘the bikini bridge gap’ is out there – more and more people are becoming aware of the idea and want to know “how to get a bikini bridge gap”, for real!

Uh-oh, look what the media has gone and done. Spread something that totally wasn’t a thing by bringing awareness to it with faux outrage of it being unhealthy because it could lead to an eating disorder. Exactly why is it unhealthy and dangerous to not look 3 months pregnant when you’re not? Beats me. The way the experts tell it, everyone should be striving towards tummy rolls, because real women are should look like the pillsbury dough boy have curves, or something like that.

Are we going to try to convince people that getting a flat tummy is something totally genetic, requires some special kind of bone structure, and virtually impossible, like they do the thigh gap?

No, because that would be just plain silly. Your genes have absolutely nothing to do with your ability to get a flat stomach. EVERY single person can get a bikini bridge gap, just like everyone can get a thigh gap. Does that mean it’s a walk in the park or a piece of cake? Most definitely no to the later, and uh-uh to the former, as well sadly.

You will need to rid your diet of the offenders: sugar, carbs, sodium, and exercise beyond a snail’s pace of walking and ultra low steady state cardio. Everything has to be strategic.

It takes some discipline, and knowledge of how to tweak your diet and exercise regimen to boost your metabolism, burn more fat instead of carbs, train your hunger. The good news is all of that is covered in my book, ‘The Thigh Gap Hack”. Since the thigh gap hack allows you to get skinny and sculpt a feminine physique, the natural byproduct of doing my program is developing a flat stomach, small waist, and subsequently a bikini bridge (YAY!)

How Long Does it Take to get a Thigh Gap or Skinny Legs?

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I get this question a lot. Time and time again someone will e-mail, Facebook or tweet me asking, “Camille, how long does it take to get a thigh gap?” “When will I see a thigh gap?” or “how long do I have to do your program [in the book] before I’ll see my gap?”

I always answer the very same way – no one really knows…

I understand you want your thigh gap in the fastest time possible, but I would be lying if I said it will take you 30 days, 14 days, or even 2 months, like some shady websites and fitness gurus have been guilty of doing. There’s no way these people could possibly know the exact period of time for the following reasons:

1. Every one is starting from different places.

Some women have more fat to lose, some women have more muscles to lose, some women are already lean and just need to lose some water weight/fluid in the thighs.

[By the way, I’ll be debuting some awesome new products in the very near future to help you release the water weight in your thighs, as well as my official ‘No More Bulky Legs’ thigh gap workout dvd. LIKE this post and leave a comment below if you’d like to get a sneak peak and special offer on both products.]

2. It depends on how well you stick to the program.

I lay out exactly which hacks you can do to get a thigh gap in ‘The Thigh Gap Hack”, and the effectiveness increases the ore strategies you utilize. If you only do hunger training, it might take a little bit longer for you to get a gap, whereas if you do hunger training and the exercise cycling program I recommend (a specific schedule of working out to maximize fat loss) and any of the other hacks, you will undoubtedly get faster results.

The truth is you can find your thigh and legs leaning out in just two weeks if you are already relatively thin and adhere to my diet and exercise regimens. If you have a good bit of weight to lose, I recommend you try not to rush getting lean. It might take 3 months to a year since you’re best bet is to try to lose 1 – 2 pounds a week at most.

Be patient – if you read the book and follow my plan, it will work in due time!

The Myth that Women Can’t Gain Muscles On Deficit

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

While some women might find this look desirable, others might think it’s too muscular.

You’ve heard it before – women can’t gain muscles on a deficit. Go ahead and squat and lunge and work your legs with heavy resistance. As long as you’re on a calorie deficit, don’t expect to see your legs looking bulky or more muscular than you might like.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

There’s a false notion that you need to be in a calorie surplus to gain muscle. The faulty logic behind this is that the muscles need protein in order to grow and that if you are in a deficit, you aren’ t getting enough protein for this to happen.

Uh.. what about if a person’s diet on a deficit consists of 80% protein? Don’t you think that would be enough for protein to grow the muscles. The problem with this misconception is that you can’t build muscles on a deficit is actually referring to a protein deficiency not a calorie deficit. These two are not the same things at all.

In other words, ladies – if you want to slim your legs and thighs, put down those protein shakes/bars/etc. All of that protein combined with workout will lead to the exact results you do not want. Besides, you don’t NEED all that extra protein! You don’t need to be eating more than your body weight in protein (e.g. you weight 100 lbs – you don’t need to consume more than 100g of protein)

Another claim is that the muscles don’t grow on a deficit. It might become stronger, tighter or more compact, but the fat that you may have lost from eating at a deficit reveals exactly what was there before.

No. No. No.

This photo of a woman’s arms before and after her weight loss (where she ate at a deficit) clearly shows that her muscle looks more defined. Even if technically it didn’t gain a lot of mass, many women don’t want a define muscular look like this (in the legs moreso than anywhere where)

Additionally, there is something commonly referred to as ‘newb gains’ in the fitness world, where someone who hasn’t really worked out much before and starts lifting/training will experience muscle growth.

What if you are a relatively small woman who doesn’t want that muscular/bulky look. Well, you won’t be exempt from those noob gains and you will see muscles developing in your legs that you frankly do not want.

It’s time people stop thinking muscle cells are different to any other kind of cells that clearly do get created whether you are in a moderate deficit or in a surplus.

The next time you hear someone proclaim this myth, please point them to this article. In fact, share this right now on your social media networks to help those women who are lifting heavy in hopes of getting a slim, bikini body – but thinking they won’t get muscular because they’re in a calorie deficit.

They’ll love you forever.

Why Plus Sized Barbie is a Terrible Idea

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

plussizedbarbieHappy New Year everyone! I don’t want to start the new year off with a rant, but this picture came up on my Facebook timeline from plussizemodeling and I had to cringe at the amount of comments in support of this craziness.

Should toy companies start making plus sized barbie dolls? As you can see, the instructions state to like if you are in support and comment if you are not.

This photo received (at the time of this writing) over 42,000 likes. The comments is not as telling, as some have voiced their opinion in support of plus size barbie dolls in spite of the directions.

Now, if you will – please turn your attention to the double chin of this barbie doll and legs/stomach/arms and tell me if this is something you would want little girls aspiring to look like.

Sure, this photo is a reflection of what some real life women look like, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good thing. Most of these women have a host of health issues, are sluggish/tired all the time, and are only wishing they could lose the weight so that they no longer look like this!

Having plus sized barbie dolls normalizes this look and makes it appear that it’s okay for a woman to have numerous chins and so much body fat that it distorts her features/good looks.

The barbie dolls that we have right now are not perfect, by any means, but at least they are not promoting overindulgence, obesity, health issues that come with being the size of the proposed barbie in question. Making a plus sized barbie doll is like fighting fire with fire – it does nothing to remedy the supposed problem of little girls striving for “unattainable” beauty that our current barbie dolls promote.

And another thing, just because many women look like the picture above, doesn’t make it normal. Our bodies were not made to look like this. You cannot possibly perform at your best when you are lugging around so much excess weight. Furthermore, even if this idea were to fly, you won’t be able to convince little girls to want a plus sized barbie doll over a slender/thin one.

Anyway, that’s just my take on it. What do you guys think about the matter? Leave a comment below on why or why plus size barbie dolls are a bad idea.

How did Christina Aguilera Lose the Weight (2013) for Real?

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Have you seen Christina Aguilera lately?
She’s back to her ‘genie in a bottle’ form and looking great as compared to where she was just a short year ago.

The powerful singer reportedly dropped a ton of weight – but as to how she did it? She credits some yoga, smiling, time off, etc. and a bunch of other bogus things.

Look, you don’t just drop as much weight as Christina has by laughing, smiling and doing some yoga! That’s total B.S. and everyone knows it.

Noone will know exactly how she’s done it, even if she does give some more details into her regimen. Remember Tori Spelling’s revelation a few weeks back about how she totally fibbed about dropping the weight through diet and exercise, when really she just stopped eating everything in sight.

Did Christina Aguilera have surgery? Did she starve herself or overexercise for hours on end to whittle down her waist? It’s probably a combination of all three!

However, if you want to lose weight like Christina did you can do the same.

It’s as simple as increasing your energy expenditure (moving more when not exercising), exercising (doing at least one hour of exercise a minimum of 4 times per week, and watching what you eat (cutting out sugar, carbs, lots of salt, unprocessed foods).

Of course, there are some other tricks that celebrities have up their sleeves when it comes to shedding weight fast and furiously. I cover a lot of these things in my book, “The Thigh Gap Hack”. So if you want to speed up your weight loss and get back into your fighting form, make sure you buy the book and make following the tips in it your new year resolution.

Happy 2014 ladies!

P.S. – My next cardio dance workout video routine will be to Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse’ so make sure you check back in 2014.
