Jessica Simpson is just 10 pounds shy of her goal weight.

Getting withing striking distance has been far from easy.

Four months after she welcomed daughter Maxwell, Jessica Simpson's post-baby body is looking curvaceous and gorgeous. But she says there's work to be done.

What kind of work? Here's a day in the life of Maxi's mom:

  • Jessica Simpson Boobs Pic
  • Jessica Simpson Cleavage Pic

7 a.m. Wakes to feed Maxwell, then eats half a Flatout flatbread sandwich with egg whites, peppers and fat-free cheddar (6 Weight Watchers PointsPlus).

8 a.m. Straps on her pedometer (above) and hits the streets with fiance Eric Johnson and Maxwell. "I'm trying to do at least 14,000 steps a day," she says.

She can't run yet because her boobs are too big, she says. Maybe someday.

Afterward: a snack of berries, bananas, melon or grapefruit (0 PointsPlus).

11 a.m. Four days a week, Jess reports to trainer Harley Pasternak for a 45-minute session. After a cardio warm-up, it's time for lifting, curls and crunches.

If it's Wednesday, she weighs in at home with her mom and pals.

When you have body dysmorphic disorder, you intensely obsess over your appearance and body image, often for many hours a day, and may feel very depressed or even suicidal, according to an eye-opening new study.

People who restrict how much they eat because they have body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), may be at higher risk of taking their own lives.

Researchers say restricting food intake because of BDD is linked with double the risk of suicide. In short, body image issues can kill you.

Disorders

"Significantly limiting food intake can be physically painful," study researcher Dr. Katharine A. Phillips, M.D., of Rhode Island Hospital, said.

"It goes against our natural instincts to feed our bodies and people may respond to the physical pain that comes with extreme hunger."

"The results of this study suggest the importance of assessing individuals with BDD for restrictive eating behaviors to identify suicide risk, even if they haven't previously been diagnosed with an eating disorder."

First Lady Michelle Obama cajoled Jay Leno into eating healthy foods for the first time in ... oh, ever during her visit to the Tonight Show on NBC Tuesday.

Promoting her “Let’s Move!” campaign to get kids excited about fitness and healthy diets, Michelle brought out some food to make an example out of Jay.

As both Jay and Michelle joked repeatedly about his eating habits, Leno sampled apples, sweet potato fries and a pizza made with eggplant, peppers and zucchini.

Could've used some sausage, but even Jay conceded it wasn't bad.

Michelle Obama encouraged Jay to dip his apple in honey made from beehives in the White House garden: “It will help it go down easier,” she said.

“'White House honey'? That just sounds bad,” Leno replied, adding, “You know, with a different president that could mean a whole different thing.”

In California to promote her initiative and attend a pair of fundraising events, Michelle also talked about her daughters and her husband's reelection campaign.

She even praised Mitt Romney singing at a recent event. Classy woman.

Watch the first part of Michelle Obama's Tonight Show interview below:

Jay-Z is getting in touch with his feminine side these days.

The 42-year-old dad-to-be is supporting Beyonce's pregnancy any way he can - and that includes dieting with her! The duo are maintaining a "partially vegan diet" and that "Jay's trying to be disciplined, and he needs the energy to support her," Us says.

If that's even halfway true, it's pretty sweet.

Beyonce and Jay-Z

Beyonce, 30, isn't going to let herself go just because she's expecting, even if she is eating for two these days. "I've been really conscious [about food]," she said.

"I've been trying my best not to lose control!"

Jay and Beyonce's commitment to healthy living seems to be paying off in more ways than one. A source they were dancing up a storm at Hollywood's Spare Room club: "They were loved up and sweet together [and] partied until 4 a.m.!"

Whatever "loved up" means, it sounds romantic. The next night, the paid hung out with Serena Williams, Kanye West and friends at Watch The Throne's afterparty.

Who said pregnancy would slow her down? Always great to hear about this awesome couple. They haven't revealed the sex of the baby, but it's totally a girl.

Heiress and fashion icon Daphne Guinness is raising eyebrows this week as the subject of a profile in this week's issue of The New Yorker magazine.

In it, Daph displayed her affinity for style over comfort.

Put more succinctly, she'll starve herself to look good.

The article describes Guinness at a David-Bowie inspired photo shoot, where she didn't mind taking pains to make her fashion look original:

"To incarnate Ziggy Stardust, she let a stylist place an enormous metallic collar around her neck; the stylist apologized for any discomfort.

"Are you kidding?" Guinness said. 'Uncomfortable is the name of the game.'"

During the shoot, she also declined to mix food and fashion, because, according to the heiress, the two are kind of mutually exclusive.

Interesting move by the OK! editorial board.

Last week, this entertainment news magazine reported that Kim Kardashian wed, 3-4 days before she actually tied the knot with baller Kris Humphries.

This week, when they would have an actual Kim wedding to report on/make up stories about, they opt for the celebrity diet filler issue. What gives?

Worst Celeb Diets

Perhaps OK! realized that Kim kashed in by selling her wedding pics to People and that their best chance was to jump the gun. Not a terrible idea, really.

In any event, we've got your standard celebrity diet issue here - and apparently, for several well-known celebrity moms, there is cause for concern.

From Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie to Victoria Beckham and LeAnn Rimes, ladies in Hollywood have some DANGEROUS ways of slimming down.

Are some of their diets too extreme? Who eats baby food? Who is such a fitness freak that she pumps iron at all hours? Who lives on 190-calorie meals?

Probably none of them, but hey, gotta sell copies somehow.

Another beauty pageant scandal is upon us. But this one has nothing to do with lewd photos, crucifixion reenactments or gay marriage stances.

Cynthia De La Vega appeared on Good Morning America today and claimed officials took away her Miss Mexico title because she dared to gain six pounds. The 19-year old was scheduled to represent her country in November's Miss World Pageant.

"I was very, very excited because I thought this would be a great experience," Cynthia said, adding of her reaction to the stripped sash: "I was very sad and very deceived. I cried and cried and cried."

Event organizers see things differently, of course. They claim the teenager old lost her crown due to a "lack of dedication and discipline." But De La Vega said she attended every class and was prepared to compete in November.

What do you think? Cynthia De La Vega losing her crown is...

She's the woman being Naturally Thin diet books, but Bethenny Frankel admits in the latest issue of Redbook that there was nothing natural about her past eating habits.

"I used to get drunk and binge on everything in the deli, and then do a juice fast or starve, then do it all over again," she says.

However, the reality star's 2009 pregnancy changed her focus for the better.

"Most people treat pregnancy like the big binge, and then they can't take the excess weight off so they go on a crash diet," she explained. "I didn't listen to anyone; I knew I was going to do it my way."

Lady Gaga doesn't stay in tip top shape while traveling the globe and rocking the house every night by accident. Nor did she at all for a bit there.

Still, she lets us in on some diet secrets here.

With the demands of performing, recording, and being one of her generation's top pop stars in general, Lady Gaga has a lot on her plate - and has to make sure what she puts on it, too, after fainting during a concert in New Zealand this year.

Ga Ga Rah-Ah-Ah-AH

It's hard work being Lady Gaga, but someone's gotta do it.

"It's all about salsa with grain chips, tofu, turkey slices, hummus and coconut water," says LaurieAnn Gibson, her choreographer, who is nominated for two MTV VMAs for helping engineer Gaga's "Bad Romance" and "Telephone" videos.
