David Arquette Is On a Quest for Professional Wrestling Redemption

The key to professional wrestling, according to David Arquette, is learning how to take a hit. Which is almost too perfect a metaphor for his wrestling career—a fighter who just can’t figure out how to go down smoothly. In 2000, Arquette first entered the ring as a publicity stunt to promote a buddy comedy called Ready to Rumble. Less than two weeks later, he found out he was booked to win the heavyweight championship, which he knew would irritate serious fans. Sure enough, ever since he thrust that WCW belt into the air, a pair of low-rise leather pants clinging to his waist and his bruised eyes glazed over in a stupefied grin, he’s been ridiculed by fans as one of the biggest punks wrestling has ever seen.

In reality, Arquette says, he had all the respect in the world for wrestling. And so, in an effort to redeem

‘The Keto Diet, A Fasting Diet, And OMAD Helped Me Lose 70 Lbs.’

My name is Zondria Arquisola (@z_theketorealtor), and I am 30 years old. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, and I am a real estate professional in southern California. After dealing with pregnancy weight gain and from medication, I was ready to feel confident and healthy again and started keto and 16:8 intermittent fasting. Now? I feel better than ever.


When I became pregnant with my first child, I gained over 50 pounds. Being a first-time mom was a wonderful experience, but also very stressful. I went back to work six weeks after giving birth and developed postpartum depression. My doctor prescribed medication that helped to alleviate my mental symptoms, but it also caused me to gain another 20 pounds on top of the baby weight I never lost.

After giving birth to my second child a few years later, it became harder and harder for me to lose

‘The Keto Diet Helped Me Overcome Fast Food Addiction’

My name is Julia Terranova (@juliagetslean), and I am 25 years old. I live in Newberg, Oregon, and I am a receptionist. After reaching a point of eating too much fast food and getting diagnosed with multiple health ailments, I committed to keto and calorie tracking and took back my health.


Before discovering the keto diet, I struggled with binge eating, especially when it came to fast food. My days revolved around trips to the drive-thru and ordering large portions. I was stopping at McDonald’s and Taco Bell two times a day, at the minimum. I hid this habit from everyone, and the weight slowly packed on.

I blamed my weight gain on the fact that I had two babies 14 months apart. I would eat meals at home with my family, then find ways to have a reason to get fast food or coffee drinks at a local coffee

What Is Lazy Keto? All About Lazy Keto Diet

The keto diet is one of the biggest diet crazes of the last decade. Celebrities have expressed their love for keto, and research shows the diet offers weight loss and other health benefits. However, some nutrition experts say a true keto diet may be too strict and unsustainable for many people, so being a little lax on the rules—also known as “lazy keto“—can still bring benefits.

As an FYI, the ketogenic diet has traditionally been a therapeutic diet used for decades to treat epilepsy, according to the Cleveland Clinic. The aim is to enable the body to go from burning glucose provided by carbs to burning ketones, produced by fat, for energy. The process, known as ketosis, can speed up metabolism, stave off hunger, increase muscle mass and improve blood pressure and the risk of heart disease.

To get there, keto meals should be 70% to 80% fat,

Here’s what you need to know before trying a 1,200-calorie diet

If you’re looking to lose weight with a diet plan, it’s likely that you’ve stumbled across a 1,200-calorie diet. A quick Google search yields pages upon pages of 1,200-calorie meal plans, including one from the prestigious Cleveland Clinic. Sounds legit, right? The truth is that 1,200 calories a day may not be the best option for you. Here’s a look at the pros and cons of a 1,200-calorie-a-day diet.

What is a 1,200-calorie diet?

A 1,200-calorie diet is a low-calorie diet. For the average adult, this is the lowest calorie level at which it may still be possible to meet most of your nutrient needs through food. When carefully planned, a 1,200-calorie menu includes sufficient protein to minimize any muscle you might naturally lose on a fast weight-loss plan and it will hit most of your vitamin and mineral targets. However, because of the low calorie levels, it’s pretty inflexible

It was like two old pals getting together over beers Diet Cokes. Bill Gates was a guest on the popular podcast “Armchair Expert” this week, hosted by actor Dax Shepard.

From the start, the Microsoft co-founder was clearly relaxed. He and Shepard cracked open Diet Cokes, a beverage they both love. And at the end of the hour-plus interview, Shepard even called Gates “cute and playful” in his post-podcast recap.

At a time when he’s doing a seemingly endless amount of media related to the dire circumstances of the coronavirus pandemic, the government response and the promise of a vaccine, Gates had fun with Shepard and his fan-boy driven line of questioning.

What is the Sirtfood diet? Adele’s rumored diet, explained

After Adele revealed a transformation on Instagram, fans began buzzing about the singer’s weight loss.

For years, it’s been rumored that the star follows a meal plan based on the book “The Sirtfood Diet.” The regimen includes multiple phases and focuses on “cellular wellness at a genetic level,” according to Aidan Goggins, one of the creators of the diet. The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister Pippa Middleton and boxer Connor McGregor have also been said to use the diet.

“The Sirtfood Diet,” by Aidan Goggins and Glen Matten

What is the Sirtfood diet?

According to Goggins, the Sirtfood diet was created as “the antidote to conventional dieting.” He and his partner, Glen Matten, were both “diet skeptics” because of their history as nutritional medical scientists. Instead of focusing on weight loss, the Sirtfood diet is based on activating sirtuin genes. Sirtuins are proteins that are members of a family of enzymes.

Benefits, Downsides, and Foods List

A no-carb diet is an extreme version of low-carb dieting. It eliminates almost all carbs, including whole grains, fruits, and most vegetables.

While studies show that decreasing your carb intake can help you shed pounds and may have health benefits, completely eliminating carbs is highly restrictive and most likely unnecessary.

This article provides a detailed overview of a no-carb diet, including its potential benefits, downsides, and foods to eat and avoid.

A no-carb diet is a way of eating that eliminates digestible carbs as much as possible.

Carbs are your body’s primary source of energy. They’re found in grains, beans, legumes, fruits, vegetables, milk, yogurt, pasta, bread, and baked goods.

Therefore, someone on a no-carb diet must avoid most of these foods and instead eat foods that contain primarily protein or fat, such as meats, fish, eggs, cheese, oils, and butter.

There is no strict rubric for a no-carb diet.
