Screen shot 2014-10-26 at 9.39.57 PM

We some how have gotten to the place where we let our pant size determine our worth. When you realize you’ve packed on some pounds, and can’t fit into your skinny jeans and you are forced into a bigger pant size than you are use too, your self confidence can quickly go down the drain.

Special K cereal has a new campaign called #MoreThanANumber.

“It’s not about the number on the tag, it’s about how the jeans make you feel: confident, sassy, even fierce. We believe a positive attitude towards managing your weight means so much more than the number. So we built a pop-up jeans store to let women rethink how they feel about themselves…and in their jeans.”

Their latest commercial showcases a unique denim experience called “Rethink your jeans” where real women went into a store to try on some jeans. But they realize none of the jeans have sizes on them. When asked if they want to get measured to find out their sizes, the women were in for a true surprise. Sizes ranged from radiant, stunning, strong, charismatic, fabulous, confident. One of the women explained not seeing the number was freeing, another explained how she couldn’t believe she got a compliment form jeans!

Fit With Fallon: My Diet Plan

IMG_0502

I posted not too long ago on instagram my before and after photos. I lost 20 lbs in 10 weeks. I had some people asking me what my diet was like, during that process of me losing weight, so here it is.

Now, I didn’t stick to a specific meal plan to a tee. My main focus when it came to food was have a food journal so I could count calories, eat less than 1000 calories a day, and try to stay away from eating a lot of carbs, focusing more on high protein.

There are great apps out there that can help take the guessing work out of counting calories, like calorieking.com. If you tend to eat the same foods, you will get use to how many calories it is, and won’t have to look them up as much, because you will see what it is by writing it in your food journal. I highly recommend a food journal so you can see your progress and really make yourself accountable.

I always did fasted cardio in the AM. Thats when you workout and do your cardio on an empty stomach. I personally feel like, its better to workout on an empty stomach, because you have less food in your stomach to burn, and more fat to bur. After a workout I had a protein shake. I loved making pina colda shakes because of my sweet tooth, it was a great way to satisfy my sweet tooth and hunger pangs. See the rest of my diet plan below;

Kendra Wilkinson Credits Atkins Diet With Helping Her Lose 40lbs

kendra4_1

Recently having her second child, and dealing with the issues of her split with husband and x-football player Hank Baskett, Kendra turns to the gym for strength!

It hasn’t been the most easiest time in Kendra Wilkinson life, being a newly single mom of two. The media went crazy when the news hit that her and her husband have split. But from the looks of it Kendra seems to be holding up pretty well! She is excited telling OK! magazine “I’ve got my body back!”. She recently showed off her post-baby body in a OK! magazine issue explaining exactly how she lost the 40 pounds!

She credits daily workouts and an Atkins diet for helping go from 175lbs to 135lbs in less than 3 months after having baby Alijah Mary.

OK: How was losing the wieght after your second baby different?

Kendra: It was tough little Hank, because i just assumed I was going to bounce back to being skinny again. And then I realized I don’t have the body type for that. So when I was pregnant with Alijah, I researched a ton of diets – I’ve never been on a real diet before!- and found that Atkins would be the best for me and my lifestyle.

OK: Is it hard to stick with your diet?

Kendra: I actually couldnt be happier with Atkins, because you can still eat your favorite foods; it just limits your carbs and sugar. Plus, it’s easy to incorporate into your routine. When I have a burger night with Little Hank, I can just skip the bun.

OK: Any other weight-loss tips you can share?

Kendra: Keep moving. If you’re a football fan, Sundays are a great excuse to say “I’m gonna sit on the couch and drink beer all day” Don’t do it! You can do some lunges and crunches with the game on too.

[Recipe] Buffalo Cauliflower

photo 2

 

This dish is a must try! & it’s perfect for a guilt free Monday night football.

I recently was at this restaurant called the Sixth in Calabasas, and glanced at the menu and saw buffalo cauliflower. I so wanted buffalo wings, but was trying to go easy on the calories. So I ordered it, and to my surprise it not only looked like buffalo wings, the taste was pretty close. The appetizer was suppose to be just for myself, but  as soon as people were asking me what it was, the entire table was joining in. Everyone had the same reaction as me “wow, these are really good”.

The dish came along with celery and blue cheese (or you can ask for ranch) just like a normal buffalo wing plate would come with. I loved it so much I recently went back with another friend just so she could try. I was able to get the recipe so I can try it at home. I wanted to share the recipe with you all. Please do try, and let me know it is.

Miss Jennai Mai loves to have flawless skin. Here is her Coconut cream juice for dry skin recipe below;

Ingredients:
2 cups unsweetened, dried coconut
3 cups hot water
Flavorings and sweeteners, if desired

Directions:
1. Set up your workspace by placing a colander in a large bowl. Cover the colander with a piece of cheesecloth or a thin kitchen towel (like the flour sack kind).

2. Blend the coconut and hot water for 2-3 minutes or until throughly processed. Pour the mixture into the kitchen towel, twist up, and squeeze as much milk as you can from the towel.

3. Put remaining coconut back into the blender with 1 cup of hot water. Process again, and squeeze more milk out. If you do this a third time, your coconut milk may be very thin. Add sweeteners and flavorings if you like.

4. Store in an airtight jar and refrigerate. Fresh coconut milk doesn’t have the shelf life of regular milk, so use it up in 4-5 days. After sitting in the fridge, the “cream” will begin to separate from the milk. Just shake it up to blend it back together before you use it.

Note: If you’d like to use this as a beverage, thin it out 1:1 with water or until it suits your taste.
