If sticks, gel and a smoothie are your idea of a diet plan, there’s a new product just for you: The Rodial Crash Diet Kit.  The picture on the box of a bottomless naked woman holding a pink measuring tape around her waist might be an indication that this product is more sexy, than healthy,  but the fact that Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton are connected to Rodial products may keep celebrity-diet-secret-seekers clamoring for the Kit. The mass appeal for this two-week ‘diet’ is astonishing given it’s obvious drawbacks for creating a healthy lifestyle, but tell that to the 2,000 people on the waiting list for the diet pack after it launched at Bloomingdale's in New York City last month.

Two members of the red team have gone home two weeks in a row.  At this point, they must be feeling the pressure mounting. Losing one weigh in, let alone two in a row, can definitely put a gloom on your situation. Can the red team stop their losing streak? Also, will Arthur be able to shake that target off his back, even as he tries to rationalize his decision to his father?

This week begins in the elimination room. The ranchers are brought in to join the unknowns in order for Ali to share some news with them: The two factions will officially be in direct competition as they are going red versus black!

You know that eating less is easier said than done. If losing weight were really that easy, 68 percent of American adults wouldn’t be overweight or obese, and we wouldn’t, on average, gain one pound a year between the ages of 20 and 60.  So, how can you lose weight - or at least, prevent weight gain - without feeling deprived and unsatisfied? Instead of focusing on what to eat less of – focus on what to eat more of!

The ranch is still reeling from the twins’ 9-pound gain from last week’s weigh-in. As much as Don says he did not throw the weigh-in, no one seems to believe him, myself included. It is EXTREMELY difficult to put a number like that up and have it be “accidental.”  There is another one of those famous twists going on this week, as per the usual. We have a temptation!
