    It works, it keep you face less puffy, it keeps your water retention low and for some people it keeps your stomach tight and flat.

    It's got to be hormonal, Montana. And not necessarily thyroid. I'm not saying it's unhealthy, but your body is telling you something - too bad it can't talk!

    Exercise and diet can be useless in the weight battle when hormones are out of whack. It's not just calories in calories out when things are out of balance.

    When the weight first went on, I was sort of hoping it was medical and could be fixed with a pill. It's not, I'm healthy as a horse. Just my body readjusted itself fairly abruptly. It's been 10 years without much fluctuation at the heavier weight and I now look like every other female in my family.

    ^^Things like estrogen dominance, insulin resistance and/or leptin resistance can all wreak havoc on your weight and not show up on standard tests. Traditional doctors are clueless about this stuff though so finding the true causes behind weight gain (the kind that won't leave despite effort) can be tricky. There are doctors - holistic and medical - who know what they're doing but they can be hard to find. And expensive

    My sister gained 30 lbs with her last (second) pregnancy and for the life of her cannot get it off. She is petite, overweight genes don't run in the family and she doesn't overeat. It's really frustrating for her and it seems unfair. Everything points to a sub-clinical hormonal imbalance that's not popping on blood tests.

    from my experience the people who do and can eat in moderation are generally a healthier weight than people who have a more extreme- 'all or nothing'- approach to food. Sure they are not usually stick stick thin(unless its their natural body shape- and if its not why would anyone want to be that thin anyway) but I've never personally know anyone who eats in moderation to be even close to overweight. If you're overweight, you are not really getting the 'moderation' part right.
    I guess I would rather enjoy a tiny bit of whatever I fancy than follow some boring monotone diet just to be able to fit into a pair of 24 inch jeans. Gastronomy is one of life's great pleasures and I feel slighty sad for people who can't enjoy it.

    Seems like a harsh diet for someone in great shape, but I wish I had Jessica's willpower. I'm pretty good at ignoring sugary foods, but salty snacks and meat do me in.

    I learned that six days of eating clean and one splurge day works best for me and my body type. She is a bit more restrictive than I am (I do put salt in my food), but I've heard of way more extreme diets.

    The main issue is when I'm off the wagon. I can gain weight almost as easily as I can lose it

    A lot of the foods (all of the drinks) are packed with sugar which is off limits according to Ms Biel.

    Also, quite a few are high in sodium.

    She essentially gets paid (a lot) to look good. Working out and starving yourself seems to be part of the job description for today's actresses. I assure you, if you were in her shoes and wanted to work, you'd eating in a similar fashion as she is.

    I wish she was more interesting. She confuses me. I read this and it's like she's trying so hard to be effortless but driven, carefree but worldly, down to earth yet above it all. Like she's trying to take a page from Jolie. All her interviews are like this. She strikes me as someone who is anything but secure and comfortable with her life.

    I get that she's in the business of looking good and that's why she has to be so stringent with her diet and mindful of her looks, which I think are very pretty. But she's looked this way for years and it hasn't paid off, not like I imagine she's wanted it to - I don't think she's any more relevant or successful than she was 3 or 5 or 10 years ago. Call it a decade and HAVE A DAMN PIECE OF PIE.

    Yes because the clean eating can lead to obsessive eating=starvation and leads to binging when off. in my experience
