Amanda lost 88 pounds over a year by reducing her portions, eating fewer carbs and undertaking moderate exercise. We all know how hard it is for most people to drop a few pounds, much less 88 pounds. But Amanda has obviously inspired many people, because the pictures she posted led to almost three million views.

Goofy Prancercise May Be For You

Well I finally heard of Prancercise. I only went to France for a week, but one author said, “Wait, what’s prancercise? Have you been living in Pyongyang or something? It’s an exercise routine inspired by horses, featuring such moves as “the prancercise gallop” and “the prancercise box” as well as some incredible rhymes by its instructor and founder, Rohrback, decked out in a crisp salmon jacket and some very revealing white pants:

“We’re gonna really cut the noose and let it loose, with the prancercise gallop.” ”

Joanna Rohrback knows you are laughing at her, and she doesn’t care.

She’s aware that people think her exercise routine “Prancercise” is “goofy,” and that by extension its founder must be “spooky and goofy and weird and wacky. I say bring it on. I love it. Look at all the attention it’s getting me. If I wasn’t all those things, I wouldn’t be who I am.”

You can see the original routine below, and you can read more right here .

Jason Segel Loses 30 Pounds After Seeing Photo Of His Fat Stomach

Here is another case history of a celebrity—this time Jason Segel—who loses 30 pounds after seeing a picture of how bad and fat he looked. He was so upset that he started exercising and eating less. “It was horrible,” he admits.

Although I never heard of him before I saw this video, I had seen him in two of his movies. Jason Jordan Segel (born January 18, 1980) is an American television and film actor, screenwriter, musician, known for his work with producer Judd Apatow on the short-lived television series Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared, the movies Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Knocked Up, I Love You, Man, Gulliver’s Travels, and Despicable Me, and also for his role as Marshall Eriksen in the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother.

Timothy Ferriss’s 4-Hour Body Book Promises Weight Loss, Superhumanity, Muscles And Spectacular Sex

Timothy Ferriss shows off his 4-hour body

Timothy Ferriss wrote The 4-Hour Workweek, loves fitness and posing with his shirt off. Remind you of anyone I know? I can almost relate to this guy.

Here’s is a NY Times book reviewer’s excited statement about Ferriss’s new book: “The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, made its debut at No. 1 on the hard-cover advice list on Jan. 2. It’s among the craziest, most breathless things I’ve ever read.”

“As befits the former chief executive of a nutritional supplements company, Mr. Ferriss talks up a witches’ brew of juices, nuts, potions and drugs. Here’s a typical burp from an early chapter: “Overfat? Try timed protein and pre-meal lemon juice. Undermuscled? Try ginger and sauerkraut. Can’t sleep? Try upping your saturated fat or using cold exposure.” Want to have “wolverine” sex? Who doesn’t? Eat 4 Brazil nuts, 20 raw almonds and 2 capsules of fermented cod-liver oil and butterfat four hours before intercourse.”

Now this sure sounds like an unusual diet.

“Mr. Ferriss offers advice about so many disparate things—not simply losing weight and building muscle and improving sex and living forever, but learning to hold your breath longer than Houdini (!) and hit baseballs like Babe Ruth (!!)”
