The problem with most people's attempts at weight loss is that they stop eating foods they enjoy and force themselves to eat kelp, kale and kippers.

While some of you may actually enjoy these foods, most of us miss the gooey cheese, tangy tomato and crunchy crust of a nice pizza.

The truth is, you CAN have your cake and eat it, too! Well, maybe not cake, but many other of your classic favorites can be slightly modified to keep you more than content, thus keeping your cravings at bay and helping you stay on the path of good nutrition (and a shrinking waistline).

I've been tricking my clients for years by giving them what they want while having them lose weight at the same time.

Here are three "healthy" versions of my favorite cheat meals that are all under 350 calories, high in fiber and protein (the duo that makes you feel fuller longer) and BIG on taste.

If the way to Ryan Gosling's heart is through his pet, then Eva Mendes is certainly doing something right.

The actress and her beau's beloved mutt were spotted happily strolling around Beverly Hills on Thursday, with George leading the way.

Mendes was first snapped on a solo stroll with the pooch in January, while Gosling was out of the country filming. But with the actor stepping out in L.A. earlier in the week, it seems she's now taken to walking George even when her boyfriend is around.

Ryan Gosling couldn't bring girlfriend Eva Mendes to his native Canadian province of Ontario without a visit to its most famous attraction – Niagara Falls!

On their trip north of the border this week, the Hollywood couple were spotted doing a little sightseeing, even taking a ride on the Niagara SkyWheel to get a good view of the iconic falls.

For Gosling, 31, who grew up in London, Ontario, it was a special trip in another way, too. On Wednesday, he and Mendes, 38, attended graduation at Brock University to cheer on Gosling's mother Donna as she earned her bachelor's degree in education.

The Toronto Sun reports that Gosling, proud of his mom, jumped to his feet and applauded and snapped pictures as she received her diploma. Otherwise the actor and his girlfriend sat toward the back of the auditorium, the paper reports, whispering to each other during the ceremony.

Ellen DeGeneres didn't try to get an official dating confirmation out of Eva Mendes, but she was able to link her and apparent beau Ryan Gosling together by one simple thread – pajamas.
