ThinkstockPhotos-163700987

Jezebel.com has compiled a list of 34 celebrities and pseudo-celebrities who have claimed to be NERDS.  That’s a lot . . . especially since the site admits that the list only includes the ones they happened to come across. There are two possible explanations for all this NERDINESS.  One:  They want to seem relatable to people who aren’t rich, famous, and beautiful.  Or Two:  They are actual nerds.  Either way, the definition of “nerd” is probably stretched a little.

Here are the 34 celebrity “nerds” they uncovered, along with their quote.

2.  Bartender.  You can make anywhere from $10 to $75 an hour, depending on the bar.

ThinkstockPhotos-76727382

 

If you’re sick of Tinder and the whole Online dating thing, AskMen.com came out with a list of the best places to meet someone who isn’t lame.  Here’s their list . . .

 

1.  Trader Joe’s.  Is it just me, or do the people who shop at Trader Joe’s always seem to be younger and hotter than people at regular grocery stores?   Plus you’re literally surrounded by people who appreciate quality food at good prices.

 

 

2.  Game night.  It’s a group setting, which makes it good for meeting new people, plus you’ve got that competitive thing going on with the games.

 

 

3.  A concert.  You’ll already know you have the same taste in music, and it’s a built-in icebreaker.

 

 

4.  The dog park.  If you have a dog, you probably already know he’s the perfect wingman.

 

 

5.  Meetup.com.  They have a ridiculous amount of groups for every interest under the sun.  If you hit up enough of them, you’re bound to find someone you connect with.

The Five Worst Foods for Your Skin

ThinkstockPhotos-177100331

 

 

When it comes to taking care of your skin, people always worry about the sun.  But you need to think about what you EAT too.  Here are the five worst foods for your skin . . .

 

 

1.  Sugar.  It causes something called glycation.  It’s when sugar molecules bond with the collagen molecules in your skin, and make it less flexible.  It also happens with foods that get broken down into sugar by your body, like bread and pasta.

 

 

2.  Potatoes and grains, partly because they get broken down as sugar.  But also because your body has to use certain minerals like zinc to metabolize them.  And a lot of those minerals are important for your skin.

 

 

3.  Fast food.  Because it’s loaded with trans fat and hydrogenated fat.  They make the cells in your skin stiffen up, and also cause inflammation.  Fried food has a lot of it too.

 

 

4.  Processed meats, like hot dogs and lunchmeat.  They’re high in salt, which makes you bloated.  And your body has to use a lot of vitamin C to deal with them, which is bad for your skin, because you need vitamin C to create collagen.

 

 

5.  Alcohol . . . again because it’s sugar, and it robs your body of vitamins and minerals.  But it also dehydrates you, which makes your skin age faster.

 

 

Caffeine dehydrates you too, so you should have one glass of water for every cup of coffee you drink.  The water in the coffee doesn’t count.

The Ten Best Snacks to Eat at Your Desk

ThinkstockPhotos-465139161

 

Before you take down a bag of chips when you need a snack today, see if anything on this list appeals to you.  Someone came up with the ten easiest things to snack on at your desk, that are also cheap AND healthy.

 

1.  Almonds.  They fill you up, because they have more fiber than other nuts.

 

2.  Low-fat popcorn.

 

3.  Fresh fruit or dried fruit.

 

4.  Dry cereal.  Just make sure it’s somewhat healthy.  Don’t scarf down a box of Lucky Charms.

 

5.  Protein bars.  Look for one that’s under 200 calories, and has fruit and nuts in it.

 

6.  Pretzels.  Just don’t eat too many.

 

7.  A frozen banana.  Which is good for summer.

 

8.  String cheese or cottage cheese.  The protein keeps your blood sugar stable, so you don’t get tired.

 

9.  Vegetables and hummus.  The chickpeas in the hummus have a lot of fiber, protein, calcium, and iron.

 

10.  Apples with peanut butter.  Just don’t overdo it with the peanut butter.  If you want to be extra healthy, go with almond butter instead.
