Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian has been rapidly losing weight in the four months following the birth of daughter North West, that fans have begun to question how she’s done it on Twitter.

“I’ve actually been doing the Atkins diet & luv it,” she wrote on Sunday.

Kim isn’t following the diet entirely though, she skipped the first two weeks, aka the “induction” phase, because she was nursing her baby. She also got the approval of her doctor to go on the diet.

“After she delivered her baby on June 15, she wanted an effective and balanced way to lose the baby weight, a spokeswoman with Atkins Nutritionals told New York’s Daily News. “She’d done Atkins before and knew it worked, so once she got the approval of her doctor, we connected her with our Vice President of Nutrition Colette Heimowitz, who counseled her directly.”

The diet focuses on a very low carbohydrate intake in favor of meat eggs dairy vegetables and fruit. By not eating carbs, which are converted to fat, the body burns stored fat instead.

Lena Dunham

Girls creator and star Lena Dunham has opened up about her battle with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and anxiety.

The actress, who was diagnosed with OCD as a young girl, reveals she came up with strange rituals after becoming obsessed with the number eight.

She tells Rolling Stone magazine, “I’d count eight times… I’d look on both sides of me eight times, I’d make sure nobody was following me down the street, I touched different parts of my bed before I went to sleep, I’d imagine a murder, and I’d imagine that murder eight times.”

Dunham now takes anti-anxiety medications to help with her condition, but she admits the anti-depressants she took as a teen often had unpleasant side effects.

She says, “(I felt) drugged like a big horse. I was so exhausted all the time, night sweats. I was pretty fat in high school if I look at it, because it just slows down your metabolism. My mom would always be like, ‘I think you’re having a lot of side effects.’ And I’d be like, ‘You’re such a b**ch; you just want me to be skinny!'”

Justin Bieber

While rehearsing for “Saturday Night Live” on Tuesday Justin Bieber battled through a bout of suspected food poisoning and threw up.

The singer will take on double duty as both guest host and performer during tomorrow’s episode, and despite his nausea he got back on his feet rather quickly.

Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun told fans about Bieber’s sickness, writing on Twitter: “Great first day at SNL with @justinbieber …so he vomited a little bit. Guys a trooper (sic)”.

On Wednesday Bieber was back at work and blamed his illness on bad food – and nerves.

He tweeted, “Think i had food poisoning yesterday. rested up… am i nervous? yep. #outofmyelement but im excited (sic).”

Meanwhile, Life & Style reports that the real reason Selena Gomez broke up with the pop star is because she recently found out that her boyfriend and Rihanna hooked up behind her back.
