Our Moms Tried Literally Every Diet, But Did It Occur to Them They Could Lose Weight By Going to the Gym?

Khloé Kardashian is getting all the glory for discovering waist training. Sorry homegirl, our moms did it first, along with these insane diets, because they were desperate to lose a pound or two…


Here’s la faja original.

What new waist training? Our moms have been using these their whole lives and were not subtle about it at all…


They’d tell their comadres…

…that they look like stuffed tamales.


AND their fajas were anything but a basic waist trainer. They wore semi-permanent plaster ones.

It looked like the most painful rib-breaking device.


They did everything to sweat the fat off…

Without working out.


Including electrocuting themselves to gain muscles.

Who said this was a good idea?


They didn’t stop at waist training. They also wrapped plastic around their toes.

How did they ever think a magnet wrapped around their fat toe would make them lose weight?!


They stapled – STAPLED – this plastic tab to their tongues to keep them from eating…which could have been done without this barbaric device.

Then they learned they could still chew their food from the side of their mouth. #CheatingTheSystem ?


And popped purple pills like no other.

Because these pills promised to suppress their appetite, accelerate their heart rate, increase energy levels… None of which sound safe or FDA approved.


Only Latina moms would trust gold pills.

Like c’mon! Everything about this looks fake.


To get a body like Maribel Guardia’s, they’d drink her magic, fat-burning tea.

Because if her picture was on it, it meant it was real.


They were cult followers of this green label.

They bought this stuff in bulk and swore by it.


This was their reaction anytime they found a new diet recipe on YouTube:

“CUANDO TU MAMA MIRA RECETAS EN YOUTUBE”

When White Actors Stop Getting All The Good Latino Roles, Maybe We'll Stop Complaining

When White Actors Stop Getting All The Good Latino Roles, Maybe We’ll Stop Complaining

ARGO / Warner Bros. Pictures

Did you know that in 2013, less than 5 percent of movie roles went to Latino actors?

gosling-wtf

(There’s so few Latinos in movies that we had to use a Ryan Gosling GIF.)

According to a study by USC’s Annenberg School for Communication, Latinos held only 4.9 percent of the roles in the top 100 movies of 2013. That’s despite the fact that Latinos make up nearly 18 percent of the population in the U.S. Oh, and BTW, Latinos are more likely to spend their money at the movies: they made up 25 percent of moviegoers in 2013. So what gives?

Remember Matt Damon’s comments about diversity? During an episode of HBO’s Project Greenlight, Damon and a group of producers were discussing a project when producer Effie Brown voiced her reservations about the lack of diversity behind the camera.

Damon replied:

damon-diversity-2

Brown’s reaction said it all.

1430640970110560039

Damon later apologized (kinda) and said he was glad to start a conversation about diversity:

“I believe deeply that there need to be more diverse filmmakers making movies … I am sorry that they offended some people, but, at the very least, I am happy that they started a conversation about diversity in Hollywood. That is an ongoing conversation that we all should be having.”

So, Matt Damon, if diversity is achieved through casting, why did your pal Ben Affleck cast himself as Tony Mendez in Argo?

In 2012, Affleck played CIA agent Tony Mendez, the central character in Argo. Affleck caught plenty of flak for casting himself, and not a Latino actor, in the role. When asked about the decision to play Mendez, Affleck said:

“You know, I obviously went to Tony and sought his approval…was the first thing. And Tony does not have, I don’t know what you would say, a Latin/Spanish accent, of any kind really, and… you know you wouldn’t necessarily select him out of a line of ten people and go ‘This guy’s Latino.’ So I didn’t feel as though I was violating some thing, where, here’s this guy who’s clearly ethnic in some way and it’s sort of being whitewashed by Ben Affleck the actor. I felt very comfortable that if Tony was cool with it, I was cool with it.”

Ben Affleck isn’t the first white actor to play a Latino in a movie. He probably won’t be the last.

Let’s go back in time… this has been happening for DECADES.

1939: Paul Muni in Juarez

Muni played Mexican president Benito Juarez in a film that also starred Bette Davis as Carlota of Mexico.

1952: Marlon Brando in Viva Zapata!

Yeah, that’s Brando playing Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata.

1961: Natalie Wood in West Side Story

Although Puerto Rican actor Rita Moreno won an Oscar for the role of Anita, white actor Natalie Wood played the Puerto Rican character Maria.

1969: Jack Palance in Che!

Jack Palance, on the right, played Fidel Castro. That’s Omar Sharif as Che Guevara.

1989: Armand Assante in The Mambo Kings

Assante, an Italian actor, was tasked with playing a Cuban musician named Cesar Castillo.

1993: Ethan Hawke in Alive

Hawke played Nando Parrado in Alive, the true story of an Uruguayan rugby team whose plane crashed in the Andes and were forced to take drastic measures to survive.

1995: Marisa Tomei in The Perez Family

Tomei played Dorita Evita Perez, a Cuban refugee who makes it to the US in the Mariel boatlift.

1996: Madonna in Evita

In this musical, Madonna was cast to play Argentine First Lady Eva Perón.

1996: Hank Azaria in The Birdcage

Azaria played a gay Guatemalan housekeeper named Agador.

2001: Jennifer Connelly in A Beautiful Mind

Connelly played John Nash’s wife, Alicia, who was from El Salvador.

But that only happened in the old days, when there were no Latino actors to choose from, right? WRONG.

2011, Carey Mulligan in Drive

The character of Irene was written as a young Latina, but director Nicolas Winding Refn cast Carey Mulligan instead. He told The Huffington Post:

“I couldn’t find any actress that would click with me personally. I couldn’t make a decision for some reason. I had all this talent in front of me and out of the blue I get a call from Carey because she wanted to meet me about doing a movie. She came by the house and she walked in and I realized, ‘Oh my God, this is what I was looking for.’ I wanted to protect her … And I knew that was the Driver’s motivation.”

And one more time, for emphasis: Ben Affleck as Tony Mendez in 2012’s ARGO.

So what were you saying about diversity and casting, Matt Damon?
