Christie Brinkley may be 57 by age. But she is look way younger than she really is. She rock a body hugging dress when some younger girls struggling to hold their breath to tuck their stomach in, in order to get a flat stomach appearance. (that's me!)

Flat stomach is never out of fashion. It never been an embarrassing experience other than someone mistaken your muffin top as "another baby to come." A flat stomach is not only essential for looking good, but for overall good health.

Registered Dietitian Jayson Hunter believes too many women enter into a diet plan without mentally preparing for it first.
“Quick weight loss is possible. Everyone knows that. But the challenge is keeping the pounds and inches off. And that takes the right mental attitude and social support.” - Jayson Hunter, registered dietitian.
To lose weight and get a flat stomach without failing, here are three mindset tips suggested by Registered Dietitian Jayson Hunter:

1. Surround yourself with the right people
To get a flat stomach without failing, women need to understand they will need to make some different lifestyle choices to keep it permanent. And that may very well mean not be able to socialize with others who can be a negative influence.

2. Don’t expect it to be easy
While to get a flat stomach doesn’t have to be a chore, women need to come to grips with the fact that it is going to take effort. Anything worth doing never is. Accept the fact there will be some tough times ahead to get flat stomach successfully. That is why it is so important to surround yourself with positive people. They will help support you when you face obstacles.
I’ve worked with hundreds of women who want to lose weight fast, but the most successful ones – the ones who keep the weight off – are the ones who have the correct disposition before starting.” - Jayson Hunter, registered dietitian
3. Don’t expect the rapid fat loss results to last forever
In his book, The Dress Size Reduction Diet, Hunter uses a formula for rotating carbohydrate intake that makes losing up to 15 pounds in just 30 days relatively easy. But as he preaches in the book, don’t expect that pace to continue. Most of the chapters focus on the permanent lifestyle changes women need to make to prevent the unwanted fat from coming back.

Eye Related Headache: The 5 Foods to Maintain Eyesight

3 Lovely Thoughts
Marcia Cross

Marcia Cross of "Desperate Housewives" is known as migraine sufferer since she publicly speak about her migraine journey a few years back. Migraine is a severe headache experience. It always accompany with nausea and vomiting. But if your headache experience has no symptom of migraine, the pain must have something to do with your vision problem. Wearing corrective glasses can impair the problem, but wearing the wrong ones can worsen your headache.

It always said that "you are what you eat" when talking about weight loss. But poor eating habits have impact on our eyesight too. Here are 5 healthy food recommendation to maintain a clear eyesight.

1. Carrot
As children, we always told to eat carrot to have a clearer eyesight. That was so true. Carrot is rich in Vitamin A and Beta-Carotene. Beta carotene is a substance that is converted to Vitamin A in the human body. This vitamin helps transfer fat to energy.
Vitamin A is not just an eye's food. It helps maintain the surface linings of the eyes and the respiratory, urinary, and intestinal tracts. When those linings break down, bacteria can enter the body and cause infection.

2. Garlic, onions, shallots and capers
Garlic and onions may cause bad breath. But despite of the odour, garlic, onions, shallots and capers are rich in sulfur. Sulfur produces glutathione, an antioxidant that helps the lens of the eye. Alpha lipoid acid and MSM included in it helps when the eyes are exposed to UV lights. Garlic may contribute to keeping the blood circulating and keep cells in the eyes resilient. It contributes to strengthening the immune system as well.This is necessary for the production of glutathione, an important antioxidant for the lens of the eye, and the whole body.

3. Cold Water Fish
Mackerel, cod, sardines and tuna are excellent source of DHA. DHA provides structural support to cell membranes, and is recommended for dry eyes and sight preservation.

4. Eggs
People avoid eggs for being high in cholesterol. Although eggs contain cholesterol, it is still safe to consume eggs daily without the yellow yolk. Compare to the white yolk, yellow yolk has high level of cholesterol. Eggs are rich in cysteine, sulfur, lecithin, amino acids and lutein. Sulfur-containing compounds protect the lens of the eye from cataract formation.

5. Green leafy vegetables
Green vegetables such as spinach and kale are rich in carotenoids, especially lutein. Lutein is a yellow or orange pigment found in green vegetables. Lutein is concentrated in the retinas of your eyes and is necessary for good vision. Lutein helps keep the eyes safe from oxidative stress and the high-energy photons of blue light.

"Eyes are the windows of your heart." Though medical technology has now advanced, prevention is always better than cure. Apart from foods, a healthy lifestyle is important as well. Avoid working too long in front of computer, reading or watching television. Take a few breaks in between. Try this simple exercise from natural-healthy-eating.com to exercise your eyes - take a break to look greens of tall tree at far away every hour while working on computer, reading or doing detail work.

It's just their muffin top that make them feel fat. To get a sleek, sexy look midriff, here are 3 best trick to get flatter abs.

Eggs and almond are the best waist-whittling foods. These foods contain fiber to banish bloat and antioxidants to boost your exercise routine to achieve flat abs fast. An ounce almonds a day provide a good source of magnesium. Magnesium is a mineral your body must have in order to produce energy, build and maintain muscle tissue, and regulate blood sugar.

Gwyneth Paltrow on the Cover of SELF US May 2011 issues 

So, what's your secret?
I do 45 minutes of cardio five days a week, because I like to eat. I also try for 45 minutes of muscular structure work, which is toning, realigning and lengthening. If I'm pepping for something or I've been eating a lot of pie, I do two hours a day, six days a week for two weeks.

What's your cardio workout?
I do Tracy Anderson aerobic classes. It took me a long time to learn the choreography when I started. I was so uncoordinated! After 11 minutes, I'd pass out and cry and say,"I can't do this anymore!" Now I can't live without it. You do it to loud music, and it's fun.

What's your goal for working out?
I like feeling strong and healthy, but mostly I think about the fried zucchini I'll eat later!

How consistent are you, foodwise?
I say, I always eat right, but last night, I had fried clams, pasta with duck sausage and two glasses of red wine. When I want to lose, I eat less pasta, bread and potatoes. Before last year's Iron Man 2 premiere, I did green juice and salads for three days.

What's your go to snack on busy day?
Raw almonds with raisins, or coconut water, or I'll make juice with kale, lemon juice, water, Vitamix a little agave. I try to avoid barbecue potato chips. They're my weakness.

Apples: You need to include apples in your diet because they are loaded with powerful antioxidants, particularly in the skin.   Apple peels contains 5x more polyphenols than the flesh. Apples are also great because they are sweet and crunchy and can add a lot to a bland meal.  Great for when you are craving something sweet but want to make a healthy choice.

Blueberries: Another fruit that you should eat as often as possible.  Blueberries are great for anti-aging purposes and they have also been shown to improve brain function.  They are high in potassium and Vitamin C, which can lower your risk of heart disease.  Eat a handful of these each morning if possible – never underestimate the power of berries.

Cabbage: Cabbage helps your immune system, kills bacteria and viruses, and is a really versatile superfood.  If you eat red cabbage you can also get the incredible anti-cancer benefits.  I like to mix a bunch of shredded cabbage in a salad, season with an oil-free lemon dressing and add a nutrient rich topping like chia seeds.

Fish: It is critical to have Omega3 in your diet, and it is most prevalent in cold water fish such as wild salmon (my personal favorite).   It’s important to avoid farmed fish if possible, and try to season lightly without any oil.  Fish have also been shown to reduce heart disease, and the fatty variety also helps alleviate depression.

Kirstie Alley slimming down for "Dancing With The Stars" 2011
Kirstie Alley has ballooned up and down in weight over the years. She proudly debuted her bikini body in "Oprah Winfrey Show" last November 2006, but again she’s gained more weight and appears to be back over 200lbs. The most recent, the 60-year-old "Cheers" alum is once again slimming down before the nation's eyes on "Dancing With The Stars."

Have you successfully lost weight and the weight creep up again and you lost it again? This continuing pattern of gaining and losing weight is called yo-yo dieting.

What causes yo-yo dieting? You are setting yourself up for the yo-yo effect when you try extreme diet to lose weight fast. When you skip meals or include a very low calorie in your diet, the body gets the hint that less calories are coming in - and metabolism begins to slow down. The weight loss that was initially achieved begins to slow down or stop. 

kristey alley 2008

Many people hit the wall at this point, and, struggling to maintain the diet, the weight begins to come back on. And what's even worse, is that for some people, the lowered metabolism means they end up with more weight than what they started at!

Freedieting.com gives you six alternatives to yo-yo dieting. Rather than opt for an extreme diet to lose weight fast, it is better to take a more long term sustainable approach.
  1. Aim for modest weight loss (even small amounts of lost fat can improve your health)
  2. If lowering calories do it slowly (i.e. don't suddenly drop 1000 calories per day).
  3. Think of your diet as a healthy eating plan.
  4. Look to change your lifestyle (activity levels and what and when and why you eat).
  5. To break the weight loss plateau you need to give your metabolism a boost. Aim to increase your levels of physical activity. And if you are missing meals or eating too few calories you need to take a serious look at your diet and aim to eat more often (every 3 hours).
  6. Don't skip breakfast.
