Olivia Munn covers Women’s Health in a tank top and her undies, looking very different from the Olivia Munn we knew and loved. It’s sad, really. I know she says it’s due to makeup and the purple potatoes but it all seems super extreme. Anyhow, Olivia breaks it down, saying she lost 12 pounds on an 80/20 diet. Here are the deets:
“When I started on X-Men, I had been training and doing regular personal training and trying to eat in a healthy way,” Munn says. Losing weight was not the goal, but rather a byproduct of her desire to become healthier all around. “My intention was to just get as fit and as healthy as I could be, for myself…I started working out every single day, and then I also started getting into eating 20-80, where 80 percent of your diet is fruits and vegetables and 20 percent is whatever. So, that can be any kind of meats or breads or anything else, but mostly fruits and vegetables.”
Sound familiar? Those are the same dietary guidelines Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady follow. The 35-year-old supermodel and 38-year-old New England Patriots quarterback employ private chef Allen Campbell, who cooks organic, plant-based meals for their family. While Munn hasn’t gone to those lengths, she says, “The thing that I’ve kept up since X-Men is eating organically. That’s been a big part of, I think, feeling healthy, feeling fit, feeling clear. Knowing that you’re putting only clean foods into your body, that’s been a really important thing for me.” Munn’s personal trainer in Montreal also taught her how to make her own almond milk. “It’ll last me two or three days,” the actress explains. “I use that to make organic smoothies every morning.”
As if Munn needed any more motivation to be in the best shape of her life: Her X-Men: Apocalypse costume leaves little to the imagination. “Even though she’s always drawn in a sexual way, she always has substantive plotlines,” she says of Psylocke, a telekinetic mutant. “What she looked like became secondary because she was lethal. She is such a badass. And smart.” It’s the kind of role Munn had been gunning for, considering her other options. “They wanted me to play the girlfriend or the bad girl who takes another girl’s boyfriend away. But I didn’t want to do roles that only revolved around a man or were always in service of a man.”
Isn’t the 80/20 rule 80% whole, nutritious food and 20% other “cheat” food and not 80% fruit and vegetables? Uhhh…
Anyhow, I think X- Men is going to suck and Olivia is going to keep getting weirder about her diet. Again, I find it very sad.

Congrats, Kim Kardashian. I guess?
As we all know, Kim has been actively documenting her weight loss journey ever since giving birth to her son Saint West back in December. After his birth, the reality star vowed to lose around 70 pounds of baby weight by going on the Atkins diet. Well…the KUWTK star has FINALLY reached her post-baby weight loss goal, which unfortunately is tied to her self-worth.
She flaunted the achievement on Snapchat (the photo evidence is below), in a pic of her weight on a scale. Kimmy dropped the weight very publicly via the Atkins diet, and lots and lots of gym time (even while vacationing). So hey, it’s good that she’s in the body she’s comfortable in, but also not so good as many people (especially in our society) think you’re a failure if you don’t drop all your baby weight immediately.
Honestly, I hate baby weight stuff- and I think it’s really messed up that we value weight loss over the achievement of birthing a new life into this world.
I say, let’s get a couple pizzas in honor of MOTHERHOOD, not weight loss. Bon Apetit!

Rob Kardashian, pick any gross unproven weight loss company! They ALL want your endorsement.
Newly-engaged Rob said his goal is to drop another 40 to 50 pounds in 5 weeks, which is gross in and of itself. BUT, reps from Hydroxycut and Quest Nutrition are ready to ship him boatloads of their products to help him reach that goal, which sounds even grosser!
A rep from Hydroxycut says they want to hook him up with a weight loss pill called Black, which will (I believe) speed up his heart like a giant reality hamster, making Chyna’s workout regimen even more hazardous (but calorie-burning!). Meanwhile, Quest says it’s interested in helping Rob pack on some muscle with some inedible protein powder, chips and bars. GROSS.
I’m all about free shit, but not free shit that’s this gross.

Adele sure doesn’t like to do stuff in moderation, which is why it’s such news when she quits something or betters her health. Am I right?
Last week it was a big deal when Adele lost weight because she drank 20 sugars a day with her extreme amount of tea. Now revealed that she quit smoking 20 cigarettes a day because she feared it would kill her. And ya know? I’m not a doc but she’s probably right.
She said: “If I’d carried on smoking I’d probably have died from a smoking-related illness and I think that’s really bad. If I was dying from lung cancer I would have potentially given it to myself and that wouldn’t be something I’d be proud of.”
(via The Mirror)
Girl had to cancel shows in 2011 after losing her voice, so she should really be taking care of herself- finally, it looks like she is. Hey Adele- nobody wants you to stop singing, like EVER. So stay healthy GEEEZZZZZ ADELE!
