WEEKNIGHTS 7:00 & 11:30
Juice cleansing is the latest way celebs are shedding the LB's and getting healthy. Vanessa Hudgens, Nicole Richie, Gwen Stefani, and my E! sister Giuliana Rancic are all fans!
I saw Giuliana carrying around this puke green juice and thought, "that can not be appetizing." But my curiosity got the better of me and so I asked her about it. She raved about a local juicery, Pressed Juicery, and so I gave in and decided to give it a shot. It was three days of just juice; six juices to be exact. The puke green juice I just mentioned has kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, cucumber, celery, apple and lemon and I have to admit, it's quite tasty. The other juices range from pineapple and mint to carrot and ginger.
The immediate effect is dropping the weight but honestly, that was the least of the benefits! I had more energy, cleared up my skin, took away the bloat, and I wasn't craving the unhealthy stuff I was before.
I'm not going to lie. I was cranky with out my coffee (and my wine!) and it was a sacrifice for the three days both mentally and physically but the benefits lasted for weeks after.
That was in January and since then I've gone back to a lot of the yumminess that isn't the most healthy. So I'm cleaning house again and am on day 2 of my juicing, putting back into my body "pure, living nutrients straight to [my] bloodstream, energizing and alkalizing [my] system back into a balanced state." At least that's what the label on the back of my juice says!
Kristina Guerrero is a self-proclaimed small-town girl with big-city dreams. Born and raised in Sunnyside, Wash., Kristina always had her sights set on the Hollywood dream. And at age 18, she set out to pursue it. With only a few pennies in her pocket and a lifetime of ambition in her heart, she packed up and moved to Los Angeles.
The dreams of bright lights, movie stars and superstardom were quickly replaced with the reality of no money, no home and nowhere to go. Not discouraged, she enrolled at the University of Southern California (go Trojans!). While in college, she landed an internship at L.A.'s Fox KTTV and climbed the ladder from "coffee girl" to field producer.
After graduating USC with a BA in Journalism, she landed her first big gig as cohost of The Rub, a relationship talk show, on SiTV network. That break led to an opportunity as a guest correspondent for Access Hollywood, where she interviewed stars like Jim Carrey and Kirk Douglas.
In January 2005, Kristina moved to San Antonio, Texas, to host her own CBS morning talk show, Great Day S.A., for which she received a local Emmy nomination. In addition, she was also a guest cohost on the Adam Corolla radio show and the spokeswoman for Latina magazine's 10th anniversary campaign.
The lure of L.A. was strong, however, and she returned in January of 2008. Most recently, Kristina was on the red carpet at the Grammys and on the sidelines at the Super Bowl as the entertainment correspondent for Inside Edition.
When she's not diligently bringing you your entertainment fix on E! News Now, Kristina enjoys watching intellectual films (The Goonies), reading life-changing literature (Cosmo) and appreciating fine dining (she'll eat almost anything).
