Call it déjá vu dieting. Kirstie Alley has signed on to be a spokesperson for Jenny Craig – again.

Seven years after parting ways with the weight-loss company, the actress, 63, returns to Jenny Craig commercials after putting on 30 lbs. in the last six months.

"I was good for a while and then I wasn?t good, and the weight crept up," Alley tells PEOPLE. "Like I say in the ad, I'm not circus fat. I didn?t hugely screw up. I didn?t gain 75. I gained 30."

Indiana School Bands Together to Help 510-Lb. Freshman

Indiana School Bands Together to Help 510-Lb. Freshman

What started as one teacher's plan to help a student lose weight has turned into a school-wide healthy-living effort in Franklin, Ind.

After suffering the death of his father and a long hospital stay, 14-year-old Eric Ekis entered Franklin Community High School School standing 6'4" and weighing 510 pounds. His size made him a target for bullies and isolated him, socially and mentally, from his peers.

When teacher Don Wettrick approached Ekis about exercising together, the embarrassed teen turned him down. So Wettrick asked a second time, a few days later. Eric turned him down again. At the end of September, Wettrick approached Ekis a third time, but this time, he didn't come to Ekis with a mission. Instead, he just asked the boy if anything was wrong.

The answer: His grief had turned to depression. Ever since his father's death, he'd given up. He wanted help, but didn't know how to ask.

So Wettrick went to work. With the help of popular senior Kevin Stahl, who takes his independent study Innovations class, the teacher organized an effort to help Eric get healthy. They started simple, with a light walking regimen, and then threw in more intense activities like yoga and basketball.

Matthew Hogg takes home brewing to a whole new level: Thanks to an excess of yeast in his digestive system, the 34-year-old British man gets as drunk from bread and pasta as his friends do from pints of lager.

Hogg's disease is called auto-brewery syndrome, a rare disorder in which his intestines produce ethanol – pure alcohol – from carbohydrates, leaving him drunk at worst, and tired and hungover at best.

No junk food? No problem.

That seems to be the case with Elizabeth Banks, 39, who manages her eating habits like a pro, telling Women's Health, simply, "People ask me how I stay thin, and I'm like, 'When you go to the grocery store, buy more bananas than cookies.' "

And when she does splurge on sweet treats, "[The freezer] is where my Girl Scout cookies are," she shares, adding that the prime location allows her to forget about them – instead of eating them.

Is the Latest Weight-Loss Craze Helpful or Harmful?

The Fast Diet: Inside the New Weight-Loss Craze

Originally posted 03/17/2013 08:50PM

The thought alone of eating just 500 calories a day is enough to make any woman feel faint. But for two days a week that's exactly what the latest blockbuster diet from Britain recommends.

The Fast Diet, coauthored by London-based doctor Michael Mosley and writer Mimi Spencer, outlines a weight-loss plan that limits a woman's daily intake to 500 calories twice aweek (men get 600 calories) but allows dieters to eat whatever they want on the remaining five days.

"It's not really fasting. It's just a break from your normal routine," says Mosley, 56, who dropped 20 lbs. in three months on the plan. "It's not like an ordinary diet where you think about it all the time. The joy is that you get on with your ordinary life."
