Emilia Clarke is thanking one man for improving her time in the kitchen—and the bathroom!

The Game of Thrones star posed for a picture with James Duigan, creator of the Clean and Lean diet. Duigan can count Clarke as one of his many celebrity fans, including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hugh Grant, and Elle Macpherson.

“Allow me to introduce the key to my very happy kitchen,” Clarke captions the photo. “This book. And this dude what wrote it…”

And Clarke, who was named Esquire‘s Sexiest Woman Alive in 2015, doesn’t hold back on the diet’s benefits, adding the cheeky hashtag, “#fullofthingsthatmakeyouopoopandthingsthatmakeyougood.”

The Clean and Lean diet is designed to put your body in “the perfect state,” according to the website, ” ‘clean’ of fattening toxins and ‘lean’ as a result of a nourishing diet and regular exercise.”

Duigan also created a fitness program, Bodyism, to go with the diet, with four studios and cafes across the world. At the locations in London, Capri, Turkey, and the Maldives, they offer classes in boxing, ballet and yoga.

Clarke previously had to switch up her diet for her role in 2015’s Terminator Genisys, increasing her protein intake as she pumped up her workouts and cutting out sugar, though she said that was tough to handle.

“It was really fun to do different kinds of training than what I would do myself and feel strong,” Clarke told PEOPLE. But “[when you finish], you’re like, ‘Please, can I have cake? Like, a chocolate cake, and a beer?’ ”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
