Activated Charcoal Drink

In her latest “Yay or Nay: Fitness Trends Edition” blog post, Khloé Kardashian admits that there are some wellness fads that she just can’t get behind.

“You dolls know that I am all about keeping on top of the newest health and workout trends,” she wrote. “There are some that make me a little nervous, though!”

One trend Kardashian, 31, just can’t get behind is drinking activated charcoal-infused juices.

“What? People drink this? NAY for me,” she posted.

Activated charcoal allegedly provides detoxifying effects, including glowing skin, better breath, improved digestion and hangover help, but there is little scientific research to support these claims, reports TIME.

“People anecdotally swear by it for a lot of these different things,” Dr. Maged Rizk, a gastroenterologist at Cleveland Clinic, told the magazine. “But the studies haven’t been done.”

Kardashian also dismisses the idea of a adhering to gluten-free diet.

“I don’t have Celiac disease, so it’s a NAY for me,” she explained.

And while many celebrities swear by juice cleanses for quick slimdowns, the Kocktails with Khloé host is not a fan of the concept.

“I’ve never done a juice cleanse and I don’t plan to,” she said. “I need to chew! This is a NAY for me.”

Kardashian did give a “yay” to probiotics, microorganisms that have varied health benefits, including treatment of diarrhea and eczema.

“I live and swear by probiotics,” she said. “Probiotics occur naturally in yogurt, but I take acidophilus pills instead! Big YAY!”

The reality star is also a fan of CrossFit.

“Have you seen me beast in the gym?” she wrote. “Definitely a YAY for the high-intensity workout CrossFit!”

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.
