15 People Who Deserve To Be Unfriended

15 People Who Deserve To Be Unfriended

Sometimes I wish unfriending people in real life was as easy as clicking a button. It'd be nice to have the option to simply delete the friends you no longer wish to be associated with. It'd be cleaner than having to shun them, ignoring texts and calls. You'd hit the virtual unfriend button and poof, the person would disappear as far as you're concerned. That's the world I want to live. Anyway, enjoy the list. 

1. Right between the eyes

2. Way to rub it in

3. Heinous

4. This one speaks for itself

5. This is about the be a two for one 

Ruined a friendship and a wedding in one move

6. Accurate

7. Please stop

8. The moment you realized your friend was awful

9. Megan is helping no one

10. This is evil

11. Wow...

Thanks

12. The best friend you wish you could turn off temporarily

13. That awful roommate you were paired with because you forgot to fill out your survey

14. That friend who thinks with their stomach

15. This is unforgivable 

Eat Six Meals A Day To Burn More Fat, Experts Say

Eat Six Meals A Day To Burn More Fat, Experts Say

Most of us have a few extra pounds we could stand to burn. Well, those of us who work at a desk all day, anyway. And sitting all day is not the best way to start. The trouble for us, as it is for everyone else in the world, is all the conflicting and confusing information out there. What's the fad diet this week? Should we be avoiding carbs? Fats? Sugar? Cut dairy? Go high protein? Go vegetarian? Go vegan?

With so many people looking for ways to trim their figures, many scientists and nutrition experts have devoted their time to the problem, and some solid, research-backed information is finally coming to light. 

Even if you already think about your meals — what's going on your plate, what's going into your meals, how many servings of vegetables you're getting, lean meats versus red meats, fiber content, and so on — you probably don't think about how often you eat. But, according to sports nutrition consultant Michelle Adams-Arent, how often you eat, and how many meals you eat during the day, can make a noticeable impact on your weight management.

Weight loss and weight management is a battle for everyone. 

It takes unparalleled discipline, time, and effort — it's an endless struggle against temptations and stresses. You need all the help you can get, but there are no shortcuts.

If dieting sounds like a fate worse than death to you, you're not alone.

Nobody wants to say goodbye to their favorite flavors for the rest of their lives. You don't necessarily have to, however, but you do need to make some changes and sacrifices.

But what happens if you've made those sacrifices and you're still not seeing the results you want?

As sports nutrition consultant and trainer Michelle Adams-Arent explains, there are some things you need to keep in mind.

And she has a great strategy for shaping up.

She has experience with these things. She has helped people transform their bodies into fit, high-performance machines.

And she notes that most people don't necessarily want to lose weight. They just want to look different. 

Her secret is a small tweak that anybody can adopt — with a little prep, of course.

Most of us are used to the classic breakfast, lunch, and dinner routine. Michelle wants you to shake that up.

She notes that people who eat six meals a day see better results and lose more body fat than those of us who stick to the traditional three.

And if you think she advocates for those six meals to be the same, boring, flavorless pile of weeds and nuts, think again.

She has seen how spreading out a day's typical calorie count across six meals works better than eating it in three larger meals.

Note that that's without a change in weight — that's just fat loss.


That said, improving nutrition is still important.

Eating six hamburgers and deep-fried candy bars every day isn't going to cut it.

In a day, you should be getting a gram of protein per pound of body weight, Michelle says.

So probably 20-25 grams of protein every three hours, with some resistance training, can really amp up your results.

15 Things To Know About Emily Blunt

15 Things To Know About Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt became a household name after she starred in The Devil Wears Prada with Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep. I mean, I've seen that movie at least a dozen times and I'm still as obsessed with it as when it came out. After that, Emily shot to the top with box office hits like Looper, Edge of Tomorrow and The Girl on the Train. And now she's going to be in Mary Poppins and I can't wait! Here's everything you need to know about the lovely Emily Blunt.

1. She grew up with a speech impediment but as soon as she started acting in school plays, it went away! 

She said she never understood the connection but even practicing new accents helped! 

2. Despite sharing the same last name, Emily is not related to James Blunt, the British singer. 

“I think people think that because we have brown hair and blue eyes we look similar so we have to be related.”

3. Before she met her husband John Krasinski, Emily dated Michael Bublé for three years.

4. While Emily and Michael were dating, he confirmed that he wrote the song "Everything" for her. 

And it's the cutest song ever. 

5. Emily admitted that on the set of The Devil Wears Prada, her and Anne were always hungry on set because they were both told to lose weight in order to play their characters. 

Emily and Anne were on strict diets to maintain the rail-thin "super-model" look.

6. After Emily filmed her first scene with Meryl Streep for The Devil Wears Prada, Meryl told Emily that she should "be given the film carbon copy rather than steal the movie." 

That's high praise coming from the one and only, Meryl Streep!

7. When she was 16 years old, Emily was offered a record deal after a producer saw her perform in the musical Bliss at the Edinburgh Festival. 

She turned it down but it ended up all working out...

8. Emily got to sing in Into the Woods when she was cast as the Baker's wife. 

9. Emily has been in the consideration for three different Marvel characters: Black Widow, Peggy Carter and Captain Marvel. 

10. Emily met her husband John through mutual friends. Apparently, they both knew that they were going to be together as soon as they met!

She's also mentioned in interviews that he tried to hide how much he was obsessed with The Devil Wears Prada because he didn't want to scare her off!

11. She has two daughters with John. Emily said that the two of them are obsessed with old lady names so their daughters are called Hazel and Violet. 

Aww! I love those names!

12. She and John are neighbors with Jimmy Kimmel and they are always in a prank war!

Seriously, it's epic. One year, John and Emily decorated Jimmy's house when he was out. Jimmy came back to ridiculous and huge Christmas decorations that took forever to take down!

13. Emily did all her own stunts for The Edge of Tomorrow. The only time she used a stunt double was when she came back for reshoots and she was already pregnant by then! 

Remember that scene where she's lifting her whole body off the mat? Yeah, that was all Emily! 

14. Stanley Tucci, her co-star in The Devil Wears Prada, is her brother-in-law. Emily introduced him to her sister and now they're happily married!

15. She said she loved working on the set of The Edge of Tomorrowwith Tom Cruise. But she did say that the metal suit she wears in the movie weighed 85 pounds. When they told her she would be doing all her action scenes wearing the suit for five months, she started to cry. 

Never change, Emily! Keep being awesome. Leave a COMMENTand tell us your favorite movie of Emily's!
