Mandisa of American Idol 5th Season Loses 80 Lbs

Working with a personal trainer, Mandisa managed to lose 80 pounds of weight and hopes to lose up to 100 lbs or more. Along with regular exercise 3-4 times a week, she has completely cut out processed foods including white flour and sugars. Her salt intake is limited also.

Instead of opting for boring exercise routines, Mandisa chooses to enjoy the weight loss process with Zumba dancing. (We too are believers in the greatness of Richard Simmons.)

Miranda Kerr Stays Fit on Vegetarian Diet

In order to maintain a thin, fit figure Miranda Kerr opts for mainly vegetarian food with small amounts of fish and chicken. Again, it is important to go back to the basics of eating unprocessed food with lots of fresh green vegetables.

Congrats to Miranda Kerr for maintaining a healthy lifestyle to meet the demands of modeling and looking good. Her fans should be proud and follow her example of eating healthy.

As a kid she participated in activities such as climbing trees instead of sitting around. Who in their right mind would call Miranda Kerr a tom boy today?

Should We Blame the FDA for Failed Dieting or Failed Weight Loss?

The food labeling industry is allowed a 20% margin of error by the FDA. When you are eating a 500 calorie slice of cake, you may be in for a surprise that the slice might be as high as 600 calories but only labeled as 500 calories.

If you are dieting, and counting every calorie that you put into your body, start applying more common sense and think again.

Don’t let the food industry and the FDA with its way with 20% margin of error trick you into eating more than necessary. Let your body decide. When you are satiated and not feeling hungry, it is okay to save untouched food portions for another time. Don’t stuff your face because a certain food is labeled as zero calories. It is a lie, duh.

Low Carbs or Low Fat? What works?

While both diets lead to weight loss. Studies have shown that  low-carb diets are the clear winner with participants shedding more pounds than participants on a low-fat diet.

Next time you eat, remember to skip the pasta and bread. You are well on your way to losing weight and achieving your weight goals.
