Liquid Diet Starts Today

Going to try to do this for at least 5 days.  I'm gonna try 7 days though as I have put on 6kg since I've stopped smoking.

  1. Decide on how long you would like your diet to last. Some people do a liquid diet 1 day per week. Beginners often set their goal between 3 to 7 days.
  2. Make sure the time span you choose for your liquid diet does not conflict with impending stressful situations. During a liquid diet, one should be in a relative state of rest.
  3. Shop for your liquid diet supplies. You will need plenty of fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, herbal teas, and water. While on this diet, food quality matters very much. Since your nutrition intake will be limited, it is important that what you do put in your body has the most nutrition possible and little or no chemicals. For this reason, I suggest you consume only organic products.
  4. Water should be your main liquid on this diet, 8 glasses at least. You should consume no more than 3 glasses of freshly juiced fruits and/or vegetables in one day. Try to consume more vegetable juice and broth than fruit juice. Vegetables contain more digestive enzymes and will help you along your diet better. Sip herbal teas all day, no limit. Do not use any type of sweetener.
  5. Fill your thermos type containers with juice or broth when you know you will be out. Always take juice or broth with you to avoid emergency situations. Set yourself up for success.
  6. Strenuous exercise is NOT part of a liquid diet. It is a good idea to take long walks at a regular pace, but do not attempt to break a sweat. The body should be at rest during this type of diet.
  7. At the end of your liquid diet, it will be important for you to pace yourself back on to solid foods slowly and over the course of a few days. Begin with soups and cooked vegetables. Gradually add whole grains and fruit. Heavy foods that are difficult to digest, like meats and dairy (cheeses) should come last, if at all.

From a Guy’s Point of View…

My buddy and I were talking this week and, as usual, we got to talking about women.  We came to the conclusion that there are a lot of guys on the internet that write about relationships, they act like they know the opposite sex or think they can explain them . I think it is all crap, that these guys don't know the first thing about women. I have dated a lot of women, been around them for most of my life, and I would never say I am an expert on women.  I don't think any guy can.  
Today though I will set a few things straight and explain some undeniable FACTS about the fairer gender.

Women don't poop

I have never seen a woman “lay a log”, nor have I ever heard one express the fact that they got the "green splats."  I bet there is some scientific research out there that says women don't produce any excrement and also don't fart. (sidenote: because of this you can no longer refer to a women's ass as a Hershey highway and you absolutely cannot refer to yourself as her personal brown eyed master.) 

Women like it when you say, "You are just like your mother."

There is no way to end an argument better, she will instantly be happy and will agree with anything you say after that.  If she replies that she will, "cut your willie off for saying that" she is just playing around, but make sure you hide any cutlery in the home just to be on the safe side.
Dutch Ovens are an acceptable, no wait, preferred form of foreplay
Women like the way men smell, this is just a natural extension of this theory. Try it tonight, I am sure she will stay under the covers and not come up for air for a long time.

A casual reminder that a pair of jeans makes her ass look fat is considered to be very helpful

In order to look out for your woman, make sure you let her know, without her asking, that she looks fat in a pair of jeans. They will appreciate you looking out for them.  She may be mad at first, but then she will realize that you are protecting her and actually paying attention to her.  Brownie points galore for this one. 

The most romantic thing you can do after a night of drinking with your friends is to…-

Sneak into the bedroom, take off your pants, and tap her on her forehead with your willie saying, "Mr. Wiggly wants to play." There isn't a more romantic way to wake a woman up, 9 out of 10 women escorts surveyed agree! 

There you have it guys! Make sure you employ this knowledge and these techniques as soon as possible for a happier and healthier relationship. Ladies, there is no need to thank me, I have given you a voice that you have so longed to have

Kim Kardashian Shows Of Her Black Bra on Glamour

Kim Kardashian Covers the February Glamour

Kim Kardashian covers the February Glamour, and in an interview with Katie Couric she talks about her love life and career and goes back to not regretting her Playboy spread.

Kim Kardashian Covers the February Glamour

On dating:
"It's easier to just be single and not have a relationship. How do you get to know someone on a reality show? Some people think that they can handle it, and then they really can't."

On being a sex symbol:
"It's definitely powerful. I don't find myself as sexy as everyone thinks. I'm a lot more insecure than people would assume, but with little stupid things. When I get dressed, I'm always so indecisive."

On being in Playboy:
"It was an independence thing for me. I was always by the book, such the straight arrow when it came to pleasing my parents and being a good daughter. I felt like this was one decision that only I could make. And I think it looks great. I'll have those pictures forever."

On having every aspect of her family's life recorded:
"If there's something that we're going through, it's going to get out anyway. It'll be on the cover of a tabloid, and it'll be twisted the completely wrong way. So why not tell our story?"

On women being comfortable with their body:
"It's a process. You have to learn to accept it. You have to learn to like what you see in the mirror. There are definitely times when I don't feel like myself, but you have to fake it until you make it."

Olivia Munn Cleavage on Audrey Magazine

Olivia Munn - Audrey magazine Spring 2011 issue

Olivia Munn sports a surprised look on the cover of Audrey magazine’s Spring 2011 issue.

Here is what the 30-year-old Perfect Couples actress had to share with the mag:

On wanting respect from the industry: “Nobody wants to be un-liked. You want people to respect you. It’s really annoying, those people who go, ‘I just want to do art.’ Really? ’Cause why aren’t you doing community theatre in Missouri? You’re out here busting your ass for a Taco Bell commercial. … I think once everybody is honest with themselves on what they’re searching for, you can break down what truly matters at the end of the day.”

On dating in Hollywood: “Over the last year, I’ve dated guys that, if people knew, would be on the cover of magazines. But they don’t find out because I say, ‘hey, would you like to go to Valencia?’ Some people go to restaurants that are so popular. They say it’s really good food. You’re like, ‘what food is worth that?’ The lobster ceviche will be just as good in a to-go box.”

On handling fame: “I feel like I’ve been given a lot and I try to say thank you. The only thing I ask of myself is to try to keep my personal life personal. I will take as many pictures as you want, I will try to answer every single question under the sun, and the reason I’m doing that is so you’ll realize that I just have to keep something for myself.”

Amanda Seyfried Gets Interview

Amanda Seyfried - Interview magazine March 2011 issue

Amanda Seyfried covers the March issue of Interview, opening up to Timberlake about the comparisons between her new movie — Red Riding Hood — and The Twilight Saga.

“I think it’s hard not to compare ‘Red Riding Hood’ because Catherine [Hardwicke] directed the first Twilight. But ‘Red Riding Hood’ is a very different film. I mean, yeah, there’s a love triangle, and people can easily compare the relationship between Kristen Stewart and those two guys in ‘Twilight’ to the Valerie, Henry, and Peter characters in this movie, but we have so many elements that make it completely different,” she says.

On being multi-talented: ‘I think my singing background has actually helped me tremendously. It certainly has something to do with why I am doing what I am doing today. So, obviously, it means something. But people just don’t seem to feel like it’s as important to have a variety of skills as a performer like that anymore.’

On whether her parents always supported her interest, even as a child performer: ‘Oh, yeah. They loved it. I honestly think they were as cool as parents get. They loved me being happy. They both worked, but they both had enough time to spend with me. So I didn’t really go into the arts for any specific reason. It was just to find a vessel for all of my energy. And also because I’m not good at anything else. I’m just really not equipped for, say, academics or sports.’

Michelle Trachtenberg Showing off her Sexy Side for Maxim

Michelle Trachtenberg Maxim magazine March 2011 issue

Michelle Trachtenberg is showing off her sexy side for Maxim’s latest issue.

* How does it feel to be on the cover of Maxim: ‘Oh, goodness. It’s exciting. I know that everyone at my high school who used to torture me and bully me is going to get a copy of it, so I’m thrilled. That’s going to be really exciting.’

* So revenge is a dish best served naked: [Laughs] ‘I’m not naked. Shame on you. But I was rather flat- chested in high school, so I was picked on all the time. I think I’ve made up for it. Maybe a bit late, but they’re here now.’

* So it’s time to unleash them on the world: ‘Just a bit. Just to tease. I was actually really, really happy with the shoot. There was an element of sexiness but still an element of mystery. I don’t want to show you too much, because, you know, that’s for me in the bedroom.’
