Beast Mode: The Literal Meaning

GiGi_Dubois_Pole_Dancing

BLUE WHALES… PYGMY SHREWS… STAR-NOSED MOLES and… HUMMINGBIRDS… Yep. All of these animals are my appetite’s doppelganger. Blue Whales devour roughly 1.5 million calories a day. Pygmy Shrews need to eat every hour or else THEY WILL DIE. Star-Nosed Moles find and swallow their sustenance in less than a quarter of a second. And Hummingbirds eat twice their weight in grub. Now don’t I just sound (and look) like a circus freak. It’s actually kind of shocking to me that no one [Read On!]

NO “BULLOCKS” with Christine Bullock!

Christine-Bullock-GiGi-Dubois laughing

Sure you may know of… Reggie Bullock: A 6’7″ basketball player who dunks, or excuse me, simply places the ball in the basket, for the Phoenix Suns. Alan Bullock: A knighted British historian, who wrote an influential biography about Adolf Hitler along with other works. Who wants to start a book club and have this book be the first one we read?

The Skinny Ain’t So Confidential Anymore

GiGi Eats The Skinny Confidential

Books are a lot like celebrities. They can be award-winning…. Others can be mysterious… And some… can be graphically bizarre. So if I told you that in my latest GiGi Eats Celebrites video, I eat a book as opposed to a celebrity, you wouldn’t hold it against me, would you? Phew! Thank goodness, because today I am snacking on a paper back. It’s a balanced snack, I promise. Lauryn, the face behind the blog: The Skinny Confidential, is the one [Read On!]

Banish Your Kryptonite!

The Speed of Light

Training to be our own respective superheroes can be TOUGH! We have to make time to bench press SUVs, perfect our ability to absorb kinetic energy so we can hurl airplanes at our enemies, and build up our endurance to the point that we can run at the speed of light! If this isn’t taxing enough, we have to endure all of this training, while also tackling the daily grind, whether it be school, attending to family needs (yes, little [Read On!]

It’s time to get SMART in the New Year

Lindsay Lohan Drinking

So you want to start fresh because it’s a new year, right? Well then it’s time to get SMART! (For the purpose of this post today, I will be using Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen as examples for how to get SMART!) While I am not going to recommend that you read Nightwood by Djuna Barnes or Finnegans Wake by James Joyce… Because to be honest, I have having a hard time believing that Lindsey or Charlie can actually read.

Strike A Pose

miranda-kerr-in-thong

Today is probably the only day of the year when all straight men across the country will switch from Sport Center to CBS without putting up a fight. Okay wait, I take that back, Shark week also tends to cause this shocking sight as well.  Today is also a day where almost all women across the country will fantasize about flaunting their swagger in leafy bikini bottoms and pasties over their nipples. (Of course I do this every day!) Are [Read On!]

XX 0802-ALTON_EAT

How many of you watch the Food Network Channel and feel as though your waistline expands two sizes in those thirty delicious minutes? Trust me, I am right there with you, especially when Giada sprinkles hazelnuts over her freshly churned chocolate-hazelnut gelato and when Duff applies the finishing touches to one of his masterful cakes. While you may rush to the bathroom scale after your favorite Food TV show (ahem… The Next Food Network Star) to convince yourself that you [Read On!]
