Have you ever heard of kefir? What about MCT oil? Mira and Jayson Calton are nutritionists and the authors of "Naked Calories," and they say these two foods can be powerful tools to help you slim down and get healthier.
Kefir is a yogurt drink popular in the Middle East that's starting to gain esteem in the United States. A source of calcium, protein, and phosphorus, kefir was found to help people to stay thinner longer in a study described in a 2011 New England Journal of Medicine article.
Craving carbs? Mira and Jayson suggest baking with coconut flour. "It's lower in carbohydrates than regular wheat flour," Mira says. "And it has something called lauric acid, which is great for raising the good cholesterol."
Mira and Jayson recommend cooking with MCT oil in place of other oils. Jayson says it's "popular with high-performance athletes but has never really made it into the kitchen." The oil causes a thermog...Read More »

Megan Hilty is the face (and voice) behind such hits as "Smash" and "Sean Saves the World," but the recent event that has her gushing happened offscreen. This past November, she married fellow actor Brian Gallagher. The kicker? The two wed just nine days after getting engaged.
"We just wanted to be married," Megan says, "so we called our parents and our siblings and said, 'Listen, in nine days we will be in Vegas. Be there.' And everybody showed up!"
The newlywed insists marriage was not something she had on the brain prior to meeting her husband. "I thought I was going to be single my whole life," the actress says. "It was never something that I wanted. I was never one of those girls. I'm very career-oriented."
Megan and her hubby kept things low-key for their nuptials. "Our reception was a pajama party," she says. "We all raced upstairs, put on our pajamas, had our dinner, and got hammered."Read More »

Wondering why men do the things they do? We typed "Why do men" into the Yahoo search engine and asked comedian Jo Koy to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about guys.
WATCH: Man Code, Decoded
Why do men like younger women? Jo insists that not all men do. "I like an older woman," he says. "I think it's just kind of annoying to take a girl out that just hasn't experienced anything."
Why do men always have to be right? Jo says that's not the case anymore. Before the Internet, he says, it was just too much work for women to prove their men wrong. "Now you just go to the Internet and you can find out that the guy's wrong."
Why do men always touch themselves? "Because it's always tangled, no matter what!" Joe explains. "You have to untangle it somehow."
What do men think about implants? According to Jo, it doesn't matter. "I like boobs in general," he says. "If a woman chooses to get implants, I'm all right with it."

Isabel Gillies had what she thought was "the perfect life." She was married to a professor at Oberlin College, had two young children and a beautiful home, and was enjoying her acting career as Elliot Stabler's wife in "Law & Order: SVU." Then, things changed drastically. "He fell in love with someone in the English Department and left me very suddenly."
Four years later, Isabel chronicles the demise of her marriage and the steps she took to get through it in her book "Happens Every Day: An All-Too-True-Story." Today, she's remarried and says that, "It's all good now. It truly, truly is."
Isabel says she made it through the dark period in her life by learning not to be resentful toward her ex-husband. "Life is long and big," she says. "It's better to light a candle than curse the darkness."
She also learned to appreciate and love the little, great moments of her day, even something small as enjoying a cup of yogurt with honey. "Those little...Read More »

While he's had a number of roles after "Lois & Clark: The Adventures of Superman," he says he doesn't mind being best recognized for his time as Clark Kent. "I don't mind being somebody's Superman at all," he says.
How did he land the iconic role? "I walked in like any other audition," Dean says. "I had read the script, and I thought, 'This kind of make sense to me.'" But there was one other actor he had to beat out first: Kevin Sorbo. "He's blond, so I was like, 'I got this,'" Dean said.
Before Dean established himself in Hollywood, he dated Brooke Shields while the two were students at Princeton. "Took her virginity?" Ali asked.
"You don't take a woman's virginity. She gives it to you," Dean replied. "I will let Brooke be the purveyor of that one."
Dean's latest project is the ION movie "Defending Santa," in which he pla...Read More »
