Pink Dolphins! Cuter than Pink Elephants : )

Amazing ..... Pink dolphins are a rare breed of freshwater dolphins that make their home in the Amazon River. Beautiful as well as smart (their brains are 40 percent bigger than a human's), they are the largest of the four known species of river dolphins.

Unfortunately, they are also endangered due to pollution, overfishing, and destruction of their natural habitat. According to National Geographic, approximately 100,000 of them remain.

Wonder why they are pink?  Its actually the blood vessels! Their blood vessels run directly beneath their skin, which is thinner than marine dolphins. So they appear pink, its actually just their blood!They also have some pink pigmentation, which helps.   They also blush like humans do, when we are nervous or exited, our hearts beat faster, and the blood vessels swell in our faces, and the dolphins do it too when they are happy or exited.

Jennifer Aniston on Baby Food Diet .. Newest Celebrity Trend

Jennifer Aniston 24X36 Poster - Very Hot - New! - Buy Me! #01According to Marie Claire, Jennifer Aniston is reportedly on a baby food diet to lose weight for her latest role in a movie called Just Go With It, which has a swimsuit scene with model Brooklyn Decker. She has reportedly lost 7lbs in a single week. (That's pretty good in my book since Aniston is already in great shape!) [Marie Claire UK]

Devised by celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson - who also counts Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna among her clientele - the diet involves eating 14 portions of puréed food a day, followed by a healthy dinner.  The mini-meals include fruit smoothies, oatmeal, soups and pears followed by a normal size evening meal of lean meat and vegetables.

Tracy Anderson Perfect Design Series SetAnderson has said to; in describing the regime: 'I developed a cleanse where you can still eat and it's a lot of puree foods. I was very careful about the foods I chose to put in it.  'When you do these liquid cleanses, I felt a responsibility to come up with something. Liquid cleanses do help you lose weight but you will gain more the next week,' she explained.
'I wanted something where you can eliminate toxicity, break bad habits but still have your digestive system going. That is when the baby food cleanse was born.'

The Pro:

  • Baby food is free of additives, pure and full of vitamins

  • Portions are small enough to control cravings and avoid the temptation to overeat

  • Many selections are gluten-free for those on a gluten-free diet

  • Organic varieties available

  • Broad variety of flavors

  • You Don't Chew!!!!!
The Con
  • Small portions could lead to a binge later on
  • Taste is bland -Since very little chewing is involved, satiety might not be achieved
So what do you think???
