Wake up with protein: When people ate a high-protein breakfast like eggs, they were less hungry in the morning and reduced their food intake at lunch compared to a low-protein like pancakes and syrup, found a University of Missouri study.

Lunch before 3: A study in the International Journal of Obesity found that eating your biggest meal—in this case lunch—before 3 p.m. may help you lose more weight compared to eating later in the day.

Add even more protein: Eating a 160-calorie snack that included 24 grams of protein three hours after lunch reduced hunger, upped fullness, and helped prevent overeating, according to another University of Missouri study. Try 1 cup of low-fat cottage cheese in the afternoon—it packs about 28 grams of protein and 163 calories.

Stop early: Limiting the time you spend eating to an eight-hour period per day helps prevent obesity and diabetes, per research.

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Reunite?

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber can’t seem to stay away from each other. Just a few weeks after the “Heartbreaker” singer told Power 106 that he and his ex were “not talking,” the two were spotted riding Segways near Bieber’s Calabasas, Calif., home.

The exes were photographed together for the first time in months on Thursday, Jan. 2. Gomez — who recently canceled her Australian tour to “spend some time on [her]self” — donned gray leggings, a white tank, and a big black coat for the outing, while her on-again, off-again beau sported black shorts, a white T-shirt, and a baseball cap.

The 19-year-old pop star recently opened up about his relationship with the Spring Breakers actress during an interview with Power 106’s Big Boy. Asked how his song “All That Matters” came about, Bieber admitted it was inspired by his ex.

“‘All That Matters’ was written when I was in a great place in my relationship, and at that time, you know, she was all that mattered in my life,” he explained.

“I was definitely in love,” he added. “[The breakup] affected us, especially when we are in front of so many people. It’s such a public thing. It’s just hard for the both of us. But, you know, she’s a great woman. I love her to this day…I think we’re going to be the greatest friends.”

He noted, though, that they were taking a break from being in contact. “Right now, we’re taking a little time and not talking,” he told Big Boy of the 21-year-old singer, whom he dated on and off until last year.

Gomez, for her part, has said it’s been hard to close the door on her connection with the Canadian. “I’ve known him for a really long time, and we enjoy each other’s company every now and then,” she shared in August. “But I’m definitely single and enjoying being that.”

Catherine Zeta-Jones & Michael Douglas Reunited After Four Month Separation

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones stepped out in together with their two children for a cute family outing on Dec. 22. It was the first time the couple had been spotted in public after they announced their separation four months ago.

Micheal, 69, and Catherine, 44, were surprisingly photographed together on Dec. 22 with their two children, Dylan, 13 and Carys, 10. The coupled hadn’t been seen together since August.

The group had an easy day. They ate lunch at Orso in Manhattan and from there saw the Broadway musical Motown and then caught a showing of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

The actor and actress have been together since 1999. They celebrated (likely separately) their 13th wedding anniversary in November.

Earlier this year, Catherine had stated she and Michael were “taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage.” Michael, however, was hoping they’d stay together and in October told Jay Leno he’s hopeful that he and Catherine could work things out and stay together.

“I’ve been away for a while, but everything should hopefully be on the up and up,” Michael said. “Sometimes people take a little bit of a break, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that’s the end. So I’m very hopeful.”

The proud couple reportedly believes in marriage and aren’t ready to pull the plug on their marriage by divorcing one another.

“This is a separation, not a split. Not a divorce,” a source told People magazine of their situation. “They’re not giving up.”

And now it looks like that fortitude paid off!

Ryan Seacrest Invests $1 Million In An IPhone Case

The 40th American Music Awards - Arrivals

Ryan Seacrest is a genius. You know it, he knows it, and now the consumer electronics industry knows it. Ryan just invested a mighty $1 million in an iPhone case, and it’s such a great idea it’ll probably be bigger than the Kardashians in about a year.

Ryan and friend Laurence Hollier have created the Typo Keyboard case. It’s an iPhone case that slides a Blackberry-esque keyboard onto your phone, thus eliminating one of the biggest gripes of Apple users. It’ll make the iPhone a little friendlier for employees who use their phones to write tons of emails.

The case will debut in January, and will retail for $99. While there are similar keyboard cases on the market, Ryan and Laurence have improved the concept so the case is thin and the keyboard responds faster.

Miley Cyrus Let’s The World Know What Kind Of Guy She’s Looking For

Three months after her confirmed split with Liam Hemsworth, the former Disney star, 21, hinted to her 15.8 million Twitter followers on Wednesday, Dec. 4 that she wanted to kick back and dress up with her significant other.

“I want a boyfriend that will wear jean on jean on jean with me,” she wrote, while sharing an image of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake circa 2001 at the American Music Awards. Although the pop couple’s relationship ended long ago, their memorable matching denim moment lives on.

Cyrus, who released her chart-topping Bangerz album in October, has previously expressed her appreciation for pop princess Spears. On Tuesday, Cyrus wished the “Perfume” crooner a “Happy album release day”; she also gushed over the new Vegas resident in her Miley: The Movement documentary. “I’ll be a diehard fan for Britney, always,” she professed.

Despite Cyrus’ recent comments that she is having the “best time ever” post-split from Hemsworth, an insider told says that she has been exchanging “flirty” texts with her former fiance. The Hunger Games actor, 23, is attempting to reconcile with his ex. “She’s confused about how she feels,” a source told says, while “[Hemsworth] is telling friends he misses her.”

The “Wrecking Ball” singer, meanwhile, explained in the December issue of Cosmopolitan that her current focus in life is music. “I need to treat my music like a relationship — give it my time and all the attention it deserves – and that’s my main love right now,” she told the mag. “This is the best time of my life. I’m not going to look back on it and be like, ‘I wish I hadn’t been dwelling over a breakup,’ you know?”

Lady Gaga Steps Out In A Mona Lisa Bed Sheet Dress

chris-stokes-blog-lady-gaga-mona-lisa-outfit

We may be the only ones, but we’re not surprised to see Lady Gaga wearing this giant Mona Lisa t-shirt dress.

Yes, it’s a ridiculous creation that looks more like a bed sheet with a hole in the top than an outfit, but it’s just like the pop star to think she’s fit to flaunt the fine art star. We just wonder what Leonardo da Vinci would think of his famous piece being paraded around on the Mother Monster. He might be a fan of the “Applause” singer on account of her artistic creations, but we could just as easily see him rolling his eyes at her whole charade.

The question is, where does this display rank in the long list of wild clothes? Let’s remember that Gaga was recently seen in a plaid suit with a squiggly cat tail, a mask that looked like a giant square bear and a frock made of what appeared to be dead skin.

So in the end, this stolen art style is pretty tame, even with those intense boots. So does this mean she’s finally peaked in the ridiculous fashion department? Don’t be ridiculous.
