The teens of Japan and South Korea have undeniably found the best way to party.
Groups of youths have descended onto their local McDonald’s where they order an overwhelming number of fries, dump them on the table and well, start digging in. Called “potato parties” (let’s workshop that name), they take pictures of themselves at their frie-laden tables before gorging all the deep fried deliciousness.
The fad began after a group of teens decided to buy unhealthy amounts of fries when the prices dropped to approximately $1.51 (USD) for all sizes during a promotion, according to The Daily Mail. One group in Okayama managed to eat sixty portions of fries — that’s roughly 30,000 calories.
Nutritionists may be quaking in their boots right about now but the forever hungry part of my brain is drooling. Thankfully, I know I’m not stupid enough to ever take part in this in the off chance the fad comes over to North America because:
a) I don’t want to die and
b) I feel like I’m dying after just trying to eat one of McDonald’s meals.

I’ve seen you send Pitbull to Alaska. I’ve also witness you failed efforts to send Justin Bieber to North Korea. So, please can we please get The Body Break’s dynamic duo of Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod on The Amazing Race? Because this would make my day.
But just in case you haven’t had to fortune of growing up in Canada during the late eighties and early nineties, let me fill you in. Hal and Joanne were pretty much our Richard Simmons. But instead of working out in weird neon spanx, these two tried to get Canada to “keep fit and have fun!” with their tips on diet and exercise. Their segments were quick and painless as they filled us in during our morning meals. Needless to say, their own tips have down them well as they seem to have hardly aged.
The most important thing you must understand is that these two have been passing along their sage wisdom in such a stoic manner. To have them on The Amazing Race would be amazing because it could go two ways:
1) They stay positive throughout the whole experience or
2) They crack under pressure and Canada will finally see the two endure a more difficult hardship than not getting your daily dose of calcium everyday
Do you see where I’m going here? Good because if we’ve learned anything from the showers of hate coming down on Anne Hathaway post-Oscar win is that perfect doesn’t win everyone over. No, I don’t have a grudge against them. I actually really like Hal and Joanne; they’ve been this weird little staple of my childhood. But I would like to see a more human side to this seemingly perfect couple and for that I would watch every single episode of The Amazing Race Canada.

Just in case you need more incentive to get them on the show, here’s a couple of episodes of The Body Break:
So, let’s get them on the show internet and voice your support!
Those who want to make a lifestyle change like Kelly Clarkson will be glad to know she doesn’t have any secret diet plans. All she needed to get back into shape was simply eat healthier.
“There’s no secret!” she says. “It’s just trying to eat a little better and work out a little more.”
Clarkson, who will be on a new show called Duets, reportedly saw how heavy she looked on TV. She was then inspired to get back into shape.
But keep in mind that Clarkson doesn’t care what size she is.
As she quips, “No matter what size I am, I love performing no matter how big or little I am! I feel good.”
I’m so proud of you, Kelly. We’re happy you’re taking on a healthy lifestyle, but we love it when you perform no matter what!
Miley Cyrus has faced a lot of accusations lately, from getting engaged to being a drug connoisseur. The latest claim is that she has an eating disorder.
The singer was first accused of anorexia when she posted a photo of fast food on Twitter along with the caption: ”I can’t eat it. So I’m just gonna smell the s**t out of it! My mouth is literally watering.”
It’s a leap to say she’s anorexic just because she stays away from unhealthy foods, but in Hollyweird it seems like everyone is on some type of vegan or juice diet. Miley is a role model for a lot of young women but I agree that the media focuses too much on celebrity weight rather than healthy diets. Just because she won’t eat a greasy meal doesn’t mean she has an eating disorder.
Miley responded to the criticism via Twitter: ”For everyone calling me anorexic I have a gluten and lactose allergy. It’s not about weight it’s about health. Gluten is c**p anyway!… I ate today at Easter lunch but all of it was healthy and even more fulfilling! Health is happiness!”
Like her or not, Jersey Shore’s Snooki has been shedding some weight recently. And RadarOnline is reporting Snooki is telling her secrets.
Snooki credits the weight loss to diet aid Zantrex-3 Fat Burner, and also a careful exercise regime. Snooki claims to be hitting the gym with a personal trainer a few times a week.
According to Zantrex’s website, “we’re talking about rapid, sustained weight loss and extreme energy, finally together in one power-packed super pill… 5 times more weight loss than the leading ephedrine-based diet pill and all the energy you’ll ever want or need… day or night.”
So how did she put on a few healthy pounds? “Now, I eat a bit of everything,” she told Amica magazine, adding that she still trains three times a week with Pasternak. ”No bread, no sugar and coffee. But I had lost too much weight.”
In March, Fox’s trainer Harley Pasternak addressed the actress’ then super-slim physique. “Believe it or not she has this really fast metabolism,” he told Hollywoodlife.com. “With her it’s really about she’s eating enough of the right things. People thought ‘Oh she must be anorexic,’ but she’s far from that!”
So how did she put on a few healthy pounds? “Now, I eat a bit of everything,” she told Amica magazine, adding that she still trains three times a week with Pasternak.
“I didn’t even know I was considered plus-sized until I came to Hollywood,” the 2007 Oscar winner and Weight Watchers spokesperson, 29, tells September’s Self magazine, on sale Thursday. “I thought I was the perfect size!”
That changed when “an interviewer asked, ‘How does it feel to be plus-sized in Hollywood?’ I looked around, like, Who is she talking to? Oh, me? I’m plus-sized? In the neighborhood I’m from in Chicago, a 16 is normal. But in Hollywood, everyone looks exactly the same, so I stood out.”
Hudson credits her weight loss to sticking to a diet and constant excercise. Hudson says, ”I’m prouder of my weight loss than my Oscar!”
“I’ve been working out and eating healthier and it feels great,” she told Ahlanlive. “I’ve been doing Pilates to help keep my body toned, and cardio in the gym. I’m also eating a lean diet with lots of organic fruit, veggies and vitamin juices. I have so much energy.”
Paris also commented about people saying she has become fat.
“All girls worry about their weight and I’m no different, except for the fact that when I gain a pound the whole world thinks I’m fat.”
Weight Watchers just added another dazzling star to their long line of celeb spokespeople. Oscar-winning singer and actress, Jennifer Hudson, announced that she is the newest face for the popular weight-loss company, MTV News reports.
After having a 7-month-old-son, David Daniel Otunga Jr., with fiancé, pro wrestler, David Otunga, the star says that Weight Watchers fits into her schedule quite well.
“I can follow the plan no matter where I am, still enjoy my favorite foods and even use the iPhone app to track my points,” she said.
Hudson is very positive about the program and does not see it as a diet.
