Post image for Bethenny is Back! Bethenny Frankel’s Tips for Holiday Eating

This week while running on the treadmill, doing my usual routine of reading a magazine, I discovered that two of my favorite things had joined forces! First, the new edition of my FAVORITE cooking magazine Clean Eating hit the shelves. I immediately scooped it up and brought it to the gym. Second, my favorite reality TV star and health food chef Bethenny Frankel did an interview in the magazine! This was perfect timing because I have really been missing her presence on Bravo.

With Thanksgiving exactly one week away and the holidays right around the corner, Bethenny offered Clean Eating some valuable holiday diet tips for getting through the season while maintaining your fit and fabulous figure. Check out what Bethenny Franked had to say, and next time you are in the market pick up a copy of Clean Eating! If you are a healthy eater like me, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

The first of Bethenny’s holiday diet tips was not to make eating habits “obsessive or extreme.” She says, “Most people make resolutions in January, which are just these big grand statements – they’re not sustainable and can’t be maintained. It’s more about easing into it and developing a food voice. Your diet is a bank account, so you should have an internal dialogue throughout the day about what you’ve already eaten and what you should still consume to balance that out. If you had a couple bites of chocolate cake, be aware of that later on and opt to not have cheesecake as well.”

Brad Pitt Workout and Diet for Fight Club

Information on the workout and diet that Brad Pitt used to prepare for Fight Club is one of the most requested workout routines here at The Celebrity Workout. Here’s the scoop.

It has been over 10 years since Brad Pitt blew people’s minds as Tyler Durden in the cult classic, Fight Club. Pitt’s body for his role as Tyler Durden is arguably the most sought-after celebrity body. No surprise considering the months of training that Brad Pitt needed to cut down to 150 pounds (Pitt is 5’ 11”) with only 5-6% body fat.

In general, Brad Pitt’s workout routine involved working out a different muscle group each day of the week to allow the muscle group to rest for a week.

Brad Pitt and the Fight Club Workout

Directions:

Perform 3 sets of each exercise with 60 seconds of rest between each set.  Use a challenging weight that allows you to complete at least 15 reps with good form. You should be fatigued at the 15th rep. Tip: If you’re not sure what weight to use, start with a light weight for the first set. Then, if necessary, change the weight for the second set and/or the next time you do the workout.

Dancing with the Stars, Evan Lysacek and Chad Ochocinco

Season 10 of Dancing with the Stars begins tomorrow night on ABC.  This season is being claimed as the most star-studded season ever with stars, such as Buzz Aldrin, Erin Andrews, Pamela Anderson, Shannon Doherty, Niecy Nash, and Nicole Sherzinger.  TCW recently featured The Bachelor Jake Pavelka. Today, we take a look at two of the stars of DWTS: Evan Lysacek and Chad Ochocinco.

Olympic Gold Medal Winner, Evan Lysacek is fresh from Vancouver and is ready for a new trophy. He’s trading in his skates to team up with Anna Trebunskaya as he hits the stage tonight on DWTS.

Lysacek certainly had an advantage during the Olympics thanks to his rigorous workouts and strict diet, so look to Lysacek as one of the early favorites. He recently discussed his strict workout and diet with That’s Fit.  With respect to his training, Lysacek says:

I’m skating everyday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. From 4 to 10 p.m., I’m dancing. When I was training for the Olympics, I spent 8 to 10 a.m. doing different floor training like warm ups, stretching, jumping rope, jumping hurdles and using bands. I was the ice from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 to 4:20 p.m. From 5 p.m. until whenever I would finish, I’d do heavy workouts with strenuous cardio, weight training and plyometrics. By the time I finished, I could barely stay awake for dinner. Every day for the last four years has been like that, but I loved it.

He also explained his training diet:

I’d start the day with five servings of different fruits and two poached eggs. Throughout the day, I’d drink protein shakes because there wasn’t enough time to sit down and digest a meal. I would always drink a Vitamin Water or diluted PowerAde to get a little sugar. As soon as I finished my workout, I’d eat a protein and five servings of vegetables. Now, I’m eating whatever I want — I love burgers, sushi and steak. I look at a menu now, and think “What am I going to eat? I can have anything on here.” [click to continue…]

Hayden Panettiere Stays Fit While Saving Dolphins

A couple weeks ago, The Cove won the Oscar for best Documentary Feature film. In The Cove, Hayden Panettiere, best known for her role in NBC’s Heroes, participates in a protest against the capture and brutal slaughter of whales and dolphins in Japan. Hayden is also spokeswoman for The Whaleman Foundation, whose mission is to protect marine animals from illegal fishing, pollution, and global warming. Although Hayden’s main motivation is saving sea creatures, she says free diving is a great workout.

In order to understand the animals Hayden fights to protect, she took up free diving. Free diving is deepwater swimming without scuba gear, and it is necessary skill for Hayden because scuba gear scares away the whales. Hayden says, “I like the excitement, and it comes in a lot of different ways. Sometimes it’s my work. Sometimes, it’s getting off my butt and feeling like I’ve accomplished something.”

Free diving allows Hayden to get close to the creatures she is fighting to save, and also provides a full body workout. She says, “I feel like I’m in the best shape of my life after a dive.” “Swimming works all your muscles – your core, glutes, quads, even the ones you didn’t know you had, like the little ones in your feet and hands!” Free diving also gets Hayden’s heart rate up. She says, “When you dive with dolphins, you have to swim fast to keep up!”
