‘Pregorexia’: Extreme dieting while pregnant
The former Take That star has battled a fluctuating waistline since he was a teenager, and earlier this year (13), he began to pile on the pounds again. An unkind article in the Daily Mail newspaper cruelly compared the star to Elvis Presley when his weight ballooned in the 1970s, but Williams is grateful for the insult as it forced him to cut back on the calories. He tells the newspaper’s Weekend magazine, “An article in the Daily Mail said I was starting to look like Elvis during a performance in Sweden. It did spur me on to a dramatic weight loss. Since then I’ve lost 23 or 24lb. So thank you Daily Mail!” Contactmusic

Yet, even legendary investor Warren Buffett noted that while investing is actually simple, it’s not easy. It’s not easy because we’re human beings, almost hard wired to make mistakes. “Investment Mistakes Even Smart People Make and How to Avoid Them” covered miracle garcinia cambogia 77 such mistakes.

Dieting and investing: Simple, but not easy
Think Kate Middleton. Beyonce. Victoria Beckham. Between 2003 and 2005, the number of baby-related, baby weight-related covers on tabloids doubled and since then, its almost become an expectation now that if a celebrity is pregnant, there will be a mention of her body during pregnancy and then theres the countdown to how fast shes going to get the weight off, said Mysko, co-author of the book Does this Pregnancy Make Me Look Fat? In interviews with more than 400 women for her book, Mysko said she and her co-author looked at the impact of this media coverage on women, who increasingly feel the pressure to have the perfect pregnancy and quickly get their bodies back. I think that absolutely has an effect on women and it absolutely fuels, I think, and validates this obsession with weight during pregnancy and after, said Mysko. We cant necessarily make a direct connection between whether that has increased the rate or the incidence of eating disorders, but certainly it has amped up this anxiety that women feel. Women who had eating disorders more at risk Women like Baumann, who battled eating disorders earlier in their lives, are much more likely to suffer from eating disorders while pregnant, experts say.
