Pixar Swaps Broccoli for Peppers for Inside Out in Japan

Pixar Swaps Broccoli for Peppers for Inside Out in Japan

Inside Out’s Japanese release stars a different vegetable

Wikimedia/Batholith

Pixar replaced broccoli with green peppers for the Japanese-language release of Inside Out.

Kids in the U.S. are not known for being big fans of broccoli, but in Japan it is apparently more common for children to hate green peppers, so when Pixar released its new movie, Inside Out, in Japan, they did some editing to switch vegetables.

According to Rocket News 24, in the original version of Inside Out, the film’s 11-year-old protagonist, Riley, faces several plates of broccoli throughout the film. To viewers in the U.S., broccoli is a familiar vegetable that many people remember being pressured to eat by their parents. Broccoli is not so common in Japanese home cooking, though, so Pixar was reportedly concerned about how the broccoli issue would play in Japan.

In Japan it is apparently green peppers that occupy that “thing my parents forced me to eat” place in people’s memories, so for Inside Out’s Japanese release Pixar not only changed the dialogue but actually went back and edited all the plates of broccoli in the movie into plates of green peppers for the version of the film that has been dubbed into Japanese.

Moviegoers in Japan who opt to see the movie in its original English with Japanese subtitles, however, will still see broccoli..


Major Films That Were Changed For Other Countries

We think of movies as entertainment, but they're also a commodity—and in order to reach the broadest possible audience, Hollywood will go to great lengths to accommodate the masses, including foreign audiences who may not respond to fart jokes, bare breasts, and blood-soaked drug busts the same way American viewers do.

In fact, there are billions of potential movie viewers outside America's borders, and plenty of other countries have all but forced some of your favorite films to go under the knife for a culturally sensitive facelift. Western filmmakers have also self-edited their work to better mesh with another culture's sense of humor, political affiliations, or social norms. Read on for some of the biggest blockbusters that were altered for international audiences.


Pixar Swaps Broccoli for Peppers for Inside Out in Japan - Recipes

Let's see. I want to talk about my favorite Disney/Pixar movie, but I also want to introduce my ridiculously large collection of unofficial minifigures, give a more accurate depiction of knock off sets than "Racing II", promote a great idea I think others should support, and make pointless jokes about companies that are more famous and successful than I am. . Might as well do it all at once! These are minifigures unofficially based on Disney/Pixar's Inside Out!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: "Inside Out" Blocks Series
Distributor: SL Toys/JR
Model: 8920
Pcs: N/A

Of all the Disney/Pixar movies we've gotten since their partnership began more than 20 years ago, Inside Out is, without a doubt, my favorite in the lineup. Sure, there's the Toy Story series with its nostalgic atmosphere, or Up with its imagination and lesson of never being too old to realize your dreams, or Finding Nemo/Finding Dory with their charm and senses of fun and perseverance, or Cars with its. forgetability, but for me, Inside Out is the movie that truly stretches the imagination and delivers fun and meaningful life lessons throughout.

Not only does the movie contain a message of growing up that all characters in the movie learn from and the audience can relate to without feeling preached to, but it takes place inside an anthropomorphized mind, reimagining thoughts and feelings in a way that has rarely, if ever, been attempted before. The only other things I can think of that attempted to reinterpret the inner workings of the human brain/body are Dreamscape(which many of you probably haven't heard of), Inception(which focuses more on realistic dreams and mental constructions, so I'm not sure if I should count it), Herman's Head(which wasn't very well thought out and the "Greek chorus" segments probably could have been taken out and nobody would notice the difference), and Osmosis Jones(a beautifully animated movie with a fantastic idea that was botched with sub-par live action segments, toilet humor, and cop cliches.) So in the world of visual media, Inside Out stands alone.

The animation is beautiful, painting a world of the mind full of dreamlike wonder and exciting interpretations of mental workings the characters are well developed and relatable, with the emotions showing they have human characteristics and development and Riley being that person we all were at that age(don't deny it!) the story is complex yet flows fluidly, with Riley and the emotions having to learn to deal with changes in their respective worlds and the actions of one existence affecting the environment of the other the humor works on all levels, each gag having something both kids and adults can enjoy while straying away from bad puns and toilet jokes and it's an overall bright, colorful, enjoyable film, which, in an age where the media has declared war on fun in exchange for "realistic situations(aka 'people being angry jerks that destroy stuff and monotonously mumble their lines whom we're supposed to relate to')", is a welcome addition to anyone's movie library and my list of favorite movies ever.

And it turns out that I'm not the only one who wants to see more from one of the greatest animated movies ever made. Right now on Lego Ideas, where Lego fans can present their own creations and gather support to encourage Lego to make and release them as actual sets, user "Okay" has created a petition to create a Lego version of the Inside Out Headquarters, recreating the base of operations for the emotions in the movie. With this set, anyone can own their own control panel, core memory container, couch, tower, memory shelves, and a set of minifigures based on Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and, the friend who likes to play, Bing-Bong!

And you'd better believe I'm behind this project 100%! Two of my favorite things combined in a small kit I can construct and use with my other brick sets? And with well-detailed minifigure representations of some of the most enjoyable characters ever put to film that I can use with other minifigures?!


The project needs 10,000 supporters, and they're halfway there with about 10 months to go! So after you've read this post(or even right now, as long as you remember to come back and read the rest), go to the petition's page, click "Support", and feel good that you're one of the people responsible for bringing one of the greatest ideas Lego has ever produced to store shelves(and giving me something else to review when it becomes a reality.)

But, if you don't want to wait and want to see an unofficial demo of what the project may potentially become before you buy the set, our impatient friends over in China have jumped the gun and created their own versions of the set's minifigures.


I briefly touched on China(and Eastern Asia in general) and its wide range of building brick bootlegs and knock off companies in my "Racing II" post. While there are companies located there that produce their own lines of building bricks, as we saw with Jie Star, there seem to be more companies that would rather steal ideas from Lego and other franchises for a quick buck, even if it means beating Lego to the punch and creating sets from Lego Ideas before they even think about it.

Yes, besides knocking off existing Lego sets, as Lego's currently suing Lepin for doing(yeah, good luck with that), some companies actually have the resources and "creativity" to produce molds and custom instructions for sets that don't yet exist! This is far from the only time an overseas company has blatantly copied something from Lego Ideas, and you can rest assured we'll be looking at more examples down the line, but it just amazes me how an underground, presumably low-profit company can create models accurate to the smallest detail based solely on visual reverse engineering.

Anyway, the company behind this set is SL Toys(SLtoys?), which is one of those companies so proud of its thievery, it plasters its name for all to see.


The only site I could find for SL Toys was ShenLong International, a toy distribution company based out of Thailand, but since their logo differs from the logo on the boxes and the products they advertise on their site are primarily model cars, Barbie knock offs, and R/C vehicles, they're probably not the same company.


However, a quick Google search for SL Toys does bring up plenty of results, most of them being, what else, bootlegs of existing Lego minifigure lines for franchises such as Frozen, Despicable Me, and Minecraft(which seemingly every bootleg building brick company I've come across has taken a shot at.)

I'm actually excited to finally be showing off knock off minifigures on this site, as it gives me a chance to showcase a more accurate example of a Chinese bootleg line than the earlier "Racing II" set. These minifigures are given individual cardboard boxes with a picture representing their contents on the front. Though in this case, instead of displaying the minifigure, SL Toys instead just opted for stolen character portraits taken from promotional art.


In fact, as you'd expect from a company clearly not worried about getting slapped with a copyright infringement lawsuit, stolen art covers the boxes, from promotional stills being used in their entirety to photoshopped character poses just being included for pointless group shots.

They even repeat one certain pose from Joy twice on the box. . Then again, Disney reused poses across some of their promotional art as well, so I guess I can give them a pass.

What I CAN'T give them a pass on is that even though Bing Bong is part of this set, he's not featured in any of the artwork. Not even in the picture depicting the rocket wagon! Come on, guys! You clearly have no qualms about stealing art to promote your quick cash grab, so how hard would it have been to tuck Bing Bong in a corner?

He is in the group minifig picture on the back, though.

And a caption on the bottom of the back of the box informs us that "Specifications, Colors, and Contents May Vary From 'Illustratonas'." And seeing as how "Illustrationas" is a word they just made up(or ripped off, since I've seen this term on a number of other bootleg and knock off building bricks), I guess I'll have to take their word for it.

And finally, yes, while this box has the 0-3 sad, cow-licked floating head

The age recommendation on the front states 6-12.

Anyone caught playing with these between those ages just makes Anger. angry. And you do NOT want to see Anger (more)angry.

Now presenting, ladies and gentlemen, our cast of characters! Please welcome Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Bing Bong!

These are SL Toys interpretation of the Lego Ideas models. which they have done an amazing job of recreating! Practically every detail from the Lego Ideas page is present on these minifigures, from the facial expressions and skin colors down to the text on their accessories! I don't know whether to applaud their tenacity or scorn their thievery and refusal to give credit where credit is due.

However, it's just the minifigures that have been made and not the entire Headquarters set, so I made my own. . Doesn't quite work while they're holding their accessories though.

For some reason, and I've noticed this with most bootleg and knock off minifigs I've gotten, manufacturers will usually package something irrelevant to the character. Maybe it fools the customer into thinking they're getting more for their money or the figure just doesn't look complete without it, but whatever the reason, it's sometimes hilarious to see what they'll bundle with each minifigure.

Especially when they'll package characters like Spider-Man with a long range sniper rifle! . I guess we know who REALLY shot Aunt May in the events leading up to One More Day.

They also come with another bootleg staple: fake trading cards! Much more plain and high res than other cards I've come across, as each card is printed on quality card stock and simply depicts the characters' faces. Most cards that come with minifigures masquerade as a trading card game and are quite clearly printed from an inkjet, but we'll get to those in a future post.

Unfortunately, the quality of the cards doesn't also apply to the minifigures, since, once again in knock off tradition, these minifigures have major problems across the board. It's a little hard to show as it's something you really need to be there to understand, but put simply, they're not exactly "built to code."

For starters, the arm pegs are often very loose and won't stay in most positions. so they can't hold things upright.

And since the studs aren't all molded the same size, the items themselves can easily come apart since there's nothing holding them together.

This is especially true of hats and hairpieces, since the hole on the bottom is either too large or the peg on the top of the head is too small, so the accessory can only sit loosely and will inevitably fall off when you move the figure too roughly.

The same applies to hands, which can just fall out of some minifigure arms just by lightly twisting them!

The opposite is true of most character heads, since the head can fit too snugly around the neck rod and then refuse to twist unless the strength of Superman amplified by a white dwarf star is employed! . It dawns on me that I'm a bit of a nerd.

Then there's the rushed paint job, with the clear splotching, the misalignment of facial features, the amateurishly designed expressions, and the paint thick enough to scrape off with a fingernail. Add the obvious seam around the top of the head and Disgust looks like The Asylum's attempt at a Frankenstein's Bride remake.

Though strangely, the torso designs are well painted and flawless, so at least they're proud of minifigure abdomen.

But the strangest flaw with these figures lie in the hands, where the seam makes it look like they made each in two pieces, then very sloppily layered them together. . How do you even do that?! As far as I can tell, regular brick figure hands are molded as one piece, so they had to have consciously built their molding machine to create the hands in a more complex, error-ridden way!

Needless to say, this makes it even more difficult for these minifigs to hold their accessories.

Also, obvious sprue fragment is obvious.

So now that I've covered the generic problems with these figures, let's talk about each one individually and what works/flops with each one.

First, we have everyone's favorite bundle of energy and spastic thought: Joy. . Well, the first problem is that instead of the yellow color she has in the movie, the manufacturer decided to make her a sickly green. It looks like she's ready to be sick all over that crystal torch they gave her for some reason.

The facial expression looks alright, with a big smile plastered under two big, blue eyes.

But then take off the hair. . Two words: Herp and Derp.

The hair, by the way, is a hard rubber. A little squishy, but keeps its shape. Besides the obvious seam around it, it's not badly molded and stays on the character's head. . However, for some reason, they gave her a bun on top of her hair, which the real thing doesn't have.

But the Lego Ideas version also has bunned hair, so I guess they were trying to be faithful to Okay's vision.

The knock off is also missing a skirt brick the original wears to make herself taller than the other figures, which makes sense, as the knock off is practically at eye-level with Anger now. Would she still have been able to drag Sadness around if they were the same size?

In fact, they give all the minifigures little Hobbit feet, which does fit with the idea of them being tiny and was also present in the original idea, but if you're making a minifigure based on a character who towers over everyone else, wouldn't you want to pick the standard 4-socket legs?

Moving on to Sadness, I think this is the best molded out of the lot. She's a great shade of blue, her wig is the most similar to her movie counterpart, her facial expression is spot-on, and I even like her sweater. even though the sloppy line work makes it look like something that belongs on a solo-animated MTV show from the early 90s.

Sadness also carries a torch-like accessory, with what I can only assume to be one of the core memories on top. And seeing how it's orange, I guess it's a memory both Joy and Anger shared. So Riley at one point had a triple-decker ice cream cone that fell before she could take a lick, but she was standing 5 stories above the school bully and it landed right in her hair right after she got it dyed again, I guess. . And if that's not in the sequel, I will lose all hope I had with Pixar!

Unfortunately, without her hair, Sadness has a very noticeable seam around her head that dirt and ink splotches can get caught in. . So, leave the hair on. A lesson for all of us.

The next minifig, Fear, has a very unique head. I understand they were trying to replicate Fear's elongated head and I do like the mouth on a cylinder piece and the two bulbous eyes being separate pieces,, but since Fear had a 2-dimensional design, it just comes across as. huh?

And it's different from the Lego Ideas page, since Fear there had the eyes on the front of his head, not this chameleon bubble-eyed look.


But the original design there has since changed as well, so I don't know what it's supposed to look like anymore.

What I really love about this figure is that they actually gave him a "Fears" list, as was depicted on the Lego Ideas page. . However, since the list has such "fears" as "Steak", "Noodles", "Gruel", and the ever specific "Dish", I'm guessing they took a menu accessory from another set and quickly painted "Fears" on it. . The very least they could have done is add "Broccoli" on there.

Anger is another minifig with a unique design. It looks like they used the mold from the Spongebob Squarepants minifig from either Lego or Mega Bloks(who currently owns the rights), which I can't think of another minifig also having. The flame on top of his head is a nice touch, though it would have been nice if the socket wasn't so loose and it actually stayed in place.

Also, the arms can only move 90 degrees forward, as moving them in any other direction pries the head off the body. I'm also pretty sure his face wasn't located in the center of his body, but Lego Ideas did that as well, so I can't complain.

And they again packaged a figurine with a matching accessory, so points to them. Although again, I think they just took the newspaper from another set. And the headline is pretty funny if you know what the terms mentioned are.

Disgust, as with Sadness, I think got the most accurate hair and facial expression. And the torso design does make it look like she's wearing a dress, so, unlike Joy, she doesn't need an additional block to look fully dressed.

I have no idea why she's holding a torch with a ruby, though. Maybe it's actually a raspberry lollipop she's trying to trick a sultan with? He may have hundreds of gems, but still nobody has ever given him the raspberry.*

*It's a Three Stooges joke. Seriously, stop watching whatever Adam Sandler's releasing direct-to-Netflix and go watch some REAL comedy.

And finally, we have everyone's favorite cotton candy, part-cat, part-elephant, part-dolphin imaginary friend who likes to play, BING BONG, BING BONG!I think this is the character they put the most thought into, since they had to build the head out of several pieces, and I love how they remembered the eyes and the little button for a hat. And I love the trunk portion that they could have just put a cylinder on for, but instead gave him something resembling a trunk.

And since Bing Bong is the tallest of all, it makes sense that they would give him actual Lego legs. . Though why they didn't make them yellow and/or orange doesn't make sense.

And for some reason, the back of his legs is hollow, which made getting this guy to pose difficult.

What also doesn't make sense is the fact he's holding a torch. At least it's a recognizable accessory unlike whatever Joy, Sadness, and Disgust were holding, but why give this character a torch?

Maybe Japan loved Inside Out so much, they decided to make him the torch runner for the 2020 Olympics? . Wouldn't be the weirdest thing they've ever done.

But be sure not to let him bring any green peppers on his trip. Japanese Riley has a bit of a problem with them.

And that's the Inside Out minifigure lot from SL Toys! I am impressed that they managed to make these things, but I'm even more impressed how these were designed by the original creator, Lego Ideas contributor "Okay." These were a little poor on the quality side, but they did give us a good look at what we'd get if we back the project, and they certainly convinced me this is a project worth backing.

. So that was fun, getting to see a possible minifigure set from Lego before it's officially released. How should we celebrate?

By looking at another line of Inside Out minifigures, of course! . Yes, there's a couple of knock off Inside Out building block sets.


Including a few Nanoblock sets, but we'll talk about those another time.

The company responsible for these goes by "JR" on the displays


Which, as far as I can find, possibly stands for "JinRun", another company known for knocking off minifigures, including, again, Minecraft characters. However, since the logo differs between what I've found and what's on these minifigures, it's either a different version of the logo, a different company going by the same initials, or possibly even a smaller company that's knocking off the knock off.

From the looks of these, I'd guess they're an earlier design, before the Lego Ideas project came to fruition. I don't have boxes for these, and I've found no evidence there were ever boxes made for this line, which is a shame, since I would have loved to have seen boxes littered with early concept art for the movie. Or at least some boxes that actually display the figures on the front.

Right off the bat, one good thing I can give these is that the loose fittings of the other line isn't a problem here. All the pieces fit snugly and the arms rotate and stay in place with no problems. Even the hair fits on the head stud perfectly, not threatening to fall off if I so much as pick up a figure.

. However, some pieces might fit a little TOO snugly. This is as a far as I could get when I tried to take off Disgust's head and, needless to say, turning her head in the animations took a great deal of time and effort. But at least these minifigs stick together and hold their accessories properly.

From the beginning, Joy 2.0(or Joy pre-Alpha build, whatever the case is.) And yes, she did come with a skateboard and a martini glass, I didn't add that as a joke(though I'll have to remember that one. ) Obviously, they didn't have the designs to steal from yet, so her shirt is more multicolored and flowery than her current counterpart. It's also missing sleeves, which matches the skateboarding persona they gave her. They've given her a more flesh-like tone instead of a sickly green, and her hair even matches the movie version's much better than the official project's. It's a lighter blue, but I'd highly encourage "Okay" to take a look at this hairstyle and decide which style fits better.

But, yes, as you've probably noticed by now, there was a slight hiccup in painting her facial features and her eye is a bit. yeah. Remember kids: Don't drink and skateboard! . And wear a helmet already! Haven't those PSAs they show before your YouTube videos scared you into submission yet? But I digress.

Moving on to Sadness, who seems to be drinking a martini with a twist, her design is almost better than SL Toy's version. Her head is a more accurate shade of blue, her face is better painted, and even her sweater is much more evenly drawn! The only thing that keeps me from embracing this design is the hair. It looks nice, but with how well "Okay" and SL Toys recreated the hair, it just doesn't match the character as much.

What they did do better than SL Toys was layer the hands much more accurately. They still look like they were molded out of two different pieces, but they at least feel like one piece here and hold their accessories without as much difficulty. It still doesn't make sense why these tiny pieces would require two separate layers, but at least they worked a little more on it.

You know what else they put more effort into? Fear's head. . A little TOO much effort, if you ask me.

Just LOOK at that noggin! It looks more like the character than the SL Toys version, but I don't know if I'm more surprised that they bothered to mold a rubber head for this character or more frightened by just how big and dead-eyed this character's cranium is!

This IS the last thing you'll see before you die!

Oh, but it gets better, because take the head off and you can see the neckline is surrounded by these little tentacles! Every second I look at this, it morphs more and more into a Lovecraftian horror!

And for some reason, the accessory they paired this minifigure up with is a deep plate and a loaf of bread, presumably to begin the sacrament of the Elder Gods as they approach our insignificant universe and bring about the end of existence. . Geez, now I just want to watch In the Mouth of Madness. Anyone else?

Moving away from the beasts of Cthulu, let's instead open the gates of hell, as JinRun seems to have gotten Anger mixed up with the Lord of Darkness, judging by that pitchfork. I find myself liking this design, despite the inaccuracy with his height and build. I just want a Halloween costume based on this guy. . Which may be the case with this one, since his head is obviously a mask.

Bonus points for molding the fires of hatred onto the top of Anger's head, accentuated by a generous helping of gold paint.

Which unfortunately doesn't extend to the back of the head. Still, not a bad interpretation.

And then there's Disgust, enjoying a peach daiquiri, who looks like the most normal minifig yet in this line. Her face and hair are green, but her torso area looks like she did her shopping at rue21, wearing a very bright, flashy blue shirt and hot green pants and sleeves. I understand Disgust is very fashion conscious, but it looks almost nothing like what her movie counterpart wore.

They didn't even give her green hands, so if it wasn't for the green face, I would have known this was Disgust and thought it was some original character they threw into the line just to complete some sense of getting your money's worth.

And, speaking of which, we come to our final minifigure! And instead of Bing Bong, we get. this person. . I really don't know who they were going for with this design. It's clearly the same model as Disgust, but the face and arms are flesh-colored, the shirt is green, and she's riding a skateboard. Is this supposed to be Riley? Or maybe it's a new emotion we didn't see in the movie. . Boredom? Is that covered by any of the key emotions presented in the movie? I guess boredom could be linked to despair, which would be Sadness' department, so. I have no idea where they were going with this figure.

But she is given a snazzy skateboard, so she can ride around to avoid thinking of how pointless her existence is. And it even says "Sport Skateboard" on it, just in case she suffers a concussion from riding without a helmet and forgets what things are called.

Seriously kids, WEAR A HELMET! . And stop drinking while you participate in extreme sports!

And that's JR's take on Inside Out minifigures(and my take on their headquarters.) They're nicely designed and have a more sturdy build than SL Toys. but I'm going to have to go with the design from "Okay." They're much more accurate to the source material, look more like actual Lego minifigs, and they're the line closer to getting released with set pieces.

So just take a bit of time, head over to the site, and say that this is something you want to buy! Even if you don't end up buying it, you'll be helping others realize their dreams and making your voice and the voices of other creators heard!

At the very least, you'll be voting for a set that doesn't have a high chance of causing insanity in young children. Or anyone for that matter. Can't imagine anything in this line being scarier than that.

Quality: The overall quality is pretty low across these lines. No only does the plastic feel a bit cheap and oily, but pegs swing freely, hands come apart, pegs won't stay in sockets and vice versa, head accessories won't stay, etc. I'd say the JR line has the best quality, but even then, pieces can get stuck and can even end up oversized or crooked to the point it will crack or bend the figures! Still, the paint job, for the most part, is fine across the board, and they do function as regular building brick figures.

Design: I LOVE how they pulled off these designs. In this case, I think SL Toys had the better design since they were able to create nearly exact copies of minifigures based on a solely visual source. The characters look like their onscreen counterparts, save for a few design hiccups with the hair and accessories, and they do look like what I would picture characters from Inside Out to look like in Lego form. However, the JR line does deserve a lot of credit as well, if just for the insanity of some of their characters. What they were thinking with the Fear and Anger custom heads, I have no idea, but I love it. However, when it comes to accuracy, both lines' Sadness characters are the best painted and molded, so feel happy for Sadness!


Creativity: I'm debating whether giving characters random accessories was creative or lazy, as the choices they made for half these minifigures make no sense whatsoever. Why does Joy have a crystal? What was the point of Fear's bread plate? Is Bing Bong really a good choice for an Olympic torch bearer? On the other hand, it's impressive they gave accessories that DO match their characters (Fear's list, Anger's newspaper, etc.) and that they made subtle changes to help them fit the lines. And JR's line. Pure, insane brilliance, especially since they didn't have anything to work off of, unlike SL Toys. On the whole, a lot of thought went into just how they were going to create these characters, how to make them look like their movie versions, and how certain minifigures would bring about the apocalypse with their odd proportions.


Readability: There were no instructions that came with any of these.

Packaging: The boxes are generically designed, just small packages to hang on a shelf in some store in Hong Kong or at a swap meet small enough to skirt sue-happy copyright holders. How they got the surprisingly hi-res promotional art to fit on the boxes is a little impressive, but there's nothing that really stands out. No Engrish, no ridiculous minifigure poses, no mistranslation, no fake logos, just stuff you've already seen leading up to the movie's release. We're not given much idea of what we'll be getting in these boxes, so unless you're specifically looking for knock off Inside Out minifigures, you'll probably glance over these.


Compatibility: They're straight-up Lego knock-offs, so they'll fit in with most, if not all, Lego sets. The fact some of them have a hard time latching onto bricks or holding things can deter full compatibility, but, save for the the custom Fear and Anger heads, they'll have no trouble fitting in with other Lego minifigures.

I'm impressed that these came to be and that the companies recognized that there's such a huge movement to get these released officially. There's a lot of quality issues, but these serve as a perfectly fine demo to what we'll get when the project is accepted by Lego. And of course it will, because you've already gone over to the site to pledge your support! Haven't I reminded you enough? And yes, I will review the actual product when it comes out, but until then, these are good placeholders for any curious fan who'd like to introduce the wonder of Inside Out to their Lego sets.

Though one question still remains: . What is underneath JR's Anger mask? . Well.

Sweet potato skins are safe to eat and can be easily added to most recipes. They’re rich in fiber, other nutrients, and antioxidants that can help support a healthy gut, increase feelings of fullness, and prevent chronic disease. If you’re looking to get the most nutrition out of your sweet potato, keep the peel on.

Sweet potatoes belong to the same family as morning glory (Convolvulaceae), while potatoes are considered a type of nightshade (Solanaceae). Japanese sweet potatoes are a variety of sweet potato with yellow flesh and dark skin. They are nutritious for humans and many types of animals.

Too much Vinegar in pickle?

So I was making grandma's pickle recipe and it said 'one cup Vinegar (to cover)'. One cup didn't cover it so i I ended up adding about four and a bit.

I realised I fucked up big time after I added the oil. Is there any way to fix it?

Add like 4x the amount of whatever it is you're pickling?

No ingredients or money for ingredients.

Maybe dilute it with water.

If you drain off some oil and vinegar you might have a great flavoured dressing for salads?

It is hard to suggest without knowing the recipe for the pickle. Perhaps drain off the oil and vinegar. Keep most of it for salad dressings. With the rest, adjust the proportion of oil and vinegar until it is correct, and recover the pickle ingredients. Good luck!

1 tin of tomatoes, drained

How do you think I could adjust it? I've been wondering if I could just keep boiling it until the liquid mostly boils off when grandma makes it it ends up almost like a jam, but mine is just like lots of onions and chillis floating around in vinegar/oil.


150 Delicious Recipes to Lose the Fat and Feel Better Fast #SANE

JONATHAN: Hey, everybody, Jonathan Bailor back and debuting the video podcast simulcast here with one of my favorite people in the world, so delighted to be making this Virgin experience with non-other than —

JJ: Oh my god –

JONATHAN: Ah, yeah, I just did that on the fly I didn’t even of planned it —

JJ: You couldn’t resist it –

JONATHAN: JJ Virgin, how you doing today?

JJ: Course that meant I had to actually change my shirt and comb my hair.

JONATHAN: Oh, JJ well, thank you so much, I know you’re chatting with us right after surgery, you’re on the road, you’re doing all kinds of stuff, so give us a little recap of the world of JJ Virgin over the past couple of months.

JJ: Over the past couple of months – let’s see like we got the cookbook all ready to go, the cookbook is out this week, February 18th, The Virgin Diet Cookbook’s out and I’ll share a little story in a little bit because most people don’t know that I started my life as a chef and then I’ve been writing my other sugar book, my gosh, that’s not until November, and then I got a little total knee replacement. I went in for a partial knee replacement and ten minutes before they go, we think that you need a total knee replacement and I go alright, well, how long do I have to decide? Ten minutes –

JONATHAN: They should have gotten you like a buy one get one free, it’s like if you get your right knee replaced –

JONATHAN: We’ll throw in the left one for free.

JJ: Yeah, it’s like well, what else could I have if we’re just going to do this – it was interesting, I trained really hard for surgery and I mean really hard, because I thought what am I going to do now to hurt it – it doesn’t matter anymore so I just went in the gym for four months and trained really hard. I had an old ballet injury. I have to say this because some mean woman on Facebook of course when I said I had this, there’s always that one hater that just pops up and you go, did you really do that? She said, well, it’s probably because you exercise so much and I go, I’m all about burst training and intense exercise and exercising less, hello — are you listening, but, I worked out and really trained for the surgery, it was an old ballet injury, then I compounded it in Wally Ball and mogul skiing and a Bar Mitzvah dance contest, so I mean it just went downhill, but I did all of this prep stuff. I had stuff in the recovery room that I was getting smuggled in to help my brain recover and then I just did a ton of stuff coming out of it — just amazing amino acids and collagen and glutathione and IVs and in fact I was back at the gym in ten days doing squats and lunges and step ups and so –

JONATHAN: Awesome —

JJ: Yeah, because they said there was nothing I could do to hurt it, which is the wrong thing to tell me, but yeah, I was back in high shoes 21 days later.

JONATHAN: That’s (Inaudible 00:03:11) and JJ that’s something I want to unpack here because you really – I know you had to change shirts because you had your Superwoman S on your chest before and you have to keep that under wraps, Clark Kent style. How do you do all of this? You’ve got myriad books, you’ve got a business, you’ve got a family, you’ve got joints getting replaced, how do you make that happen practically?

JJ: Well, you know, I think with all of this, it’s really about prioritizing and understanding this is a lot easier than people think and that’s the real deal. With exercise, this concept is with exercise that we have to go and do all of it, an hour plus in the gym, but the same rules that we bonded over the Calorie Myth, man, I was like oh, I love this guy – we bonded over the all calories are not created equal craziness, well, it’s the same with exercise. All exercise is not created equal. Endurance training makes you fat, old and lose your sex drive. I mean I don’t know, maybe some people like that because I certainly see a lot of people out doing that and walking for weight loss is just stupid. It’s not going to work. So, you know me, I’m delicate (Inaudible 00:4:19)

JONATHAN: What do you really think here?

JJ: How do you feel about that? It was really clear to me early on. I was paying my way through graduate school as a personal trainer and I go, wow, this like eating less and exercising more stuff it’s not working – they’re not going to pay me if I don’t – if I make them fatter, they’re not going to really like me. So, it was really clear that’s really about holding on to and building muscle and intensity is everything, so in exercise, that can mean 15 minutes in a day and then with food, it’s really about making simple shifts, it’s not like going – and even with my cookbook, I started out when I was a teenager and I was teaching calisthenics because back then that’s what it was, how old am I – and I was a caterer so I was cooking and teaching exercise – way back when – and it was really clear to me that back then it was all about like these complicated recipes because no one had the Internet or all this – they had time – but now, no one has any time and it’s really – who wants to spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen? I mean I have teenage boys, they don’t care if it took five minutes or an hour, they’re going to eat it, so it’s all about quick, simple, easy things that taste good and you can do that whether you’re at a fast food restaurant, you can still do it, it may not have the same quality –

JONATHAN: Yeah.

JJ: Right? But you can still pull it off – to a great restaurant, to snack at the grocery store, to making your own food. This is simple stuff. It’s just learning how to do it and I think we get, we’re such creatures of habit, that all of a sudden you look at it and you go, okay, I’ve got to make all these changes, oh, my gosh, and one of the points that’s so important is don’t try to make a million changes at once. Like for the Virgin Diet what I have people do is drop seven foods – that’s all they do for the first three weeks. They take these seven foods out, they swap in other foods. That’s all they focus on. We don’t talk exercise, we don’t talk sleep, we don’t talk – nothing — zippo – that’s it. Because we also know that the biggest needle mover immediately for weight loss is going to be diet. Now wrong term if that’s all you did, you’d be a fluffy — a fluffy skinny person. You’d be tofuoutside and fat inside and you’d be battling yourself to keep yourself at that weight –

JONATHAN: Yeah.

JJ: And you would not look good naked. If that’s important to you —

JONATHAN: Yep.

JJ: Should be, if it’s not – if it’s not, we have another discussion about another area of health, but this is all I think the take-away there is this is all far easier than people realize and sometimes we get bogged down in the why of all of it, and we think the how is insurmountable and it’s really not and it’s just a matter of changing habits and doing them one step at a time and they get reinforced very quickly because of how much better you start to feel. I mean the other example is I’ll take someone who’s say a walker or a runner doing an hour of cardio every day and I go okay, just for a week, because they get addicted to it, right?

JONATHAN: Yeah.

JJ: Just like they addicted to gluten, dairy and sugar, they get addicted to aerobic exercise, because it’s a drug. Just like food is. I say let’s just take it this week and all we’re going to do is you’re going to warm up for a couple of minutes and then I want you to go all out. Sprint it and then walk it off, sprint it for 30 to 60 seconds, walk it off – it will take you 15 to 20 minutes to accomplish that – just do that this week – every other day instead of what you were doing – and see how you feel at the end of the week – because the results are tremendous. They have way more energy, they’ve probably lost a little bit of weight, tightened up some, so it’s a way and bigger metabolic shift and again, I mean the Calorie Myths and Virgin Diet, all of our stuff is all about really the chemical messages in your body and just like food creates that information, chemical messages, so does exercise —

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: And so does stress of course and sleep, so when you really look at this, it’s really pretty simple. You make those shifts in your diet, you fit your exercise in, you make sure you make time for sleep, you don’t steal from that no matter what, no matter how tempted you are –

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: To do that and then you put something in your day each day, that helps you have some bliss, which sounds ridiculous that we’d actually have to put that in.

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: But it could be as simple as walking your dog – I mean my dog is like the biggest source of – I just have the prettiest dog – I have the best dog – whatever it is – becauseespecially for us women here, I’m sure you guys do this too, but women especially tend to put ourselves last on the list –

JONATHAN: Yeah.

JJ: And so that’s it, the simple equation, but one step at a time. I got on a rant I’m sorry.

JONATHAN: No, there’s actually three things in there I want to unpack and the one step at a time I think really deserves some focus because that’s something that recently I’ve been dealing with a little bit is individuals talking about – what about this and what about this and what about this and then before I answer any of those questions, I say are you getting at least seven hours of sleep per night consistently? Are you eating vegetables, and their questions and their focus isn’t on these – let’s call it base line things, which are the huge needle movers and there’s all these questions about something they saw on television or this thing they saw on the Internet and we only have so much space in our brains so how can we communicate the message that focusing on these big rocks and I’d love to hear what your big rocks are – and until we get that down, just don’t think about anything else.

JJ: Yeah, don’t think about — I’m just thinking I know what it is like that – what’s the pink or red, the raspberry ketones, so concerned about the raspberry ketones, I’m like wait you’re eating cake – okay –

JONATHAN: Those raspberry ketones don’t cancel out the cake.

JJ: It doesn’t – wouldn’t that be awesome – a cake cancel outer – so the big needle movers, is that what you want? I love needle movers. I think that honestly, good is good enough and if you focus on that 80 percent and make those shifts, the 20 percent fills in if it even matters –

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: We do get so concerned about this perfection, it’s like who cares? So, the first thing for me is of course, I have people follow the Virgin Diet, which Step One and I know we’re totally simpatico with what I call the Virgin Diet plate, which is eating a balance and clean lean protein, healthy fats, loads of non-starchy vegetables and a little bit of slow low carbs, so really nailing down what that looks like and getting that in place and then that’s the first phase – do that and get into the meal timing of eating within an hour of waking up, eating every four to six hours, one snack if you need it, getting out of that silly ridiculous let’s snack every two hours, jack up our blood sugar, raise our insulin and shut off fat burning. It’s like look at the science. So you’re not a snack guy are you?

JONATHAN: I’m an eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full guy, so –

JJ: I was like going oh, my gosh – because I do have a friend who’s like that. You put ten nutritionists in a room, it can get ugly fast. It’s like we agree on water and vegetables and then from there it just goes boof – so it’s the Virgin Diet plate and eating by really the clock and listening to yourself and seeing if you’re really hungry because usually you’re just thirsty or it’s just a (Inaudible 00:12:01) response because I always have a snack at 2:00. Pulling out the seven foods and checking to see. My whole Virgin Diet is about food intolerance and that there’s an epidemic of leaky gut out there where your small intestines become more (Inaudible 00:12:20) the tight junctions have loosened, due to gluten, due to fructose, due to artificial sweeteners, due to stress, due to stress, due to stress, due to antibiotics, due to pain medications, loosens up, you eat the same things all the time. You’re not even chewing.

Did you know there was just a cool study I saw, unfortunately this is ridiculous, I’ve been trying to do it and I can’t do it – 40 chews.

JONATHAN: Wow –

JJ: They compared diets doing 40 chews and 15 chews. Most people don’t even do 15 chews and the 40 chew guys lost – they lost 12 percent more weight or something ridiculous just by chewing more because they finally were registering – it suppressed (Inaudible 00:12:59) so, it suppressed their appetite. Anyway, I digress. We normally don’t chew, so we’re not breaking down the components of our food and then it gets into our small intestine and then it gets out into our body, our body goes, what the heck is this, this should not be here, launches an immune attack, creates immune complexes, they build up, because we’re eating the same things all the time, we don’t have enough macro (Inaudible 00:13:21) to eat them up, and all of a sudden we have joint pain and headaches and gas and bloating and fatigue and skin problems and cravings because we tend to crave the very foods that hurt us, an inability to lose weight and we go to the doctor and the doctor is oh, you’re just getting older, that is normal.

JONATHAN: Just try harder, just eat less –

JONATHAN: What’s wrong with you?

JJ: Eat less. I had one doctor tell one of my clients that for you – this is going to piss you off, all right, so here we go –

JONATHAN: All right, I’m ready.

JJ: For you lady, he didn’t say lady, but he might as well of – for you – losing weight is going to be a like taking a wheelbarrow, filling it full of bricks and pushing it off the sand dune. Motivating – gee, I’ll try that.

JONATHAN: Wow.

JJ: Yeah, so – so the first thing really is to see what foods you’re intolerant to because I’ve yet to see someone not intolerant to something and this came out of a lot of testing in doctor’s offices, but I realize there was no single test to look at – immunological, hormonal and genetic issues to food intolerance and the best tests was your own chemistry lab, so you pull these foods out for three weeks to let your immune system cool down, your hormones come back and balance, (Inaudible 00:14:31) by the plate, you’re doing simple swaps, so for example, you pulled out dairy, you put in coconut milk, you pulled out pasta, you put in Quinoa pasta, so simple swaps so you don’t miss the foods, because if you just pull things out and don’t give people something easy to swap in its place, they’ll will put something worse in.

JONATHAN: Yep.

JJ: I see it every time. They’re like I’m gluten free and I’m having a cupcake. I’m like, ahhh— no, no, that’s not a health food. There’s so many things under that health food umbrella that makes me insano –

JONATHAN: Absolutely, JJ — just real quick — to unpack – we talk about the Virgin plate here. What are some of the concretes – so you’ve got your cookbook coming out, you’ve been doing a lot of awesome videos and such around how to actually do this and you are the perfect example of it’s doable, so can you take us through some of your top tips that folks can find in your upcoming work here about breakfast, lunches and dinners, cost saving, time saving –

JONATHAN: Practical.

JJ: Thank you and by the way, the videos I have videosthevirgindiet cookbook.com/jonathan, for you.

JONATHAN: You do?

JJ: I have put together four videos on this and five recipes and again for me I think what I focus on the most is there’s really cool information out there. I send it to everyone as you know to read your stuff and then the big thing is okay, now what should we do?

JONATHAN: Yep.

JJ: And the simple thing is I think there’s a misconception out there that it’s going to be hard or it’s going to cost a lot. When I hear the cost a lot it comes to a bigger emotional question though is in reality a lot of the expensive stuff in the grocery store are the processed foods.

JONATHAN: Right.

JJ: That’s where they get us. So, when you learn to use like maybe a local CSA, to go to the Farmer’s Market, to buy on sale – I’ve got a second freezer stocked full with bison and grass fed beef and wild salmon – when you learn to do that you actually kind of trade – because you’re trading expensive processed food for grass fed beef –

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: But, let’s say that it even costs a little bit more. You kind of got to sit there and go well, what’s my health worth for me? What’s my family’s health worth for me? If it were to cost more in the long run and I know it’s hard to sell the long run. You know it costs less because you’ve got great health, but even if you just looked in the short run of more energy, more confidence, more focused, clear skin, looking younger, I mean hello – right?

JONATHAN: And we’ll spend even more money on pills, powders and potions and –

JONATHAN: And cosmetics and it’s just like heal it from the inside out it seems.

JJ: Right. It’s so interesting, so much of that stuff like I love supplements, but the name, we have to understand the name they’re supplements.

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: To me it makes no sense to supplement a crappy diet. I know there was that McDonalds study where they showed – I was like okay, there’s no sense to supplement a crappy diet when they did this thing where they supplemented people and improved their blood lipids when they were eating McDonalds. I’m like well, yeah, but why bother?

JONATHAN: Yeah.

JJ: Why not just fix your diet first and yes, you should be supplementing, but fix your diet first and the other part of it’s hard. I could say it’s hard maybe ten years ago, but we’ve become so much more aware of gluten and dairy issues. The area where I think it’s challenging is the deception around sugar –

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: Which is my next book, which I’m like incensed about — I’m incensed. Things like they’ll put no sugar added, no (Inaudible 00:18:03) fruit juice concentrate so that’s the one where we really have to be careful with our label reading, but if you pick things that don’t have labels, or it’s very simple ingredients like quinoa – or lentils, or it’s Brussels sprouts and that’s it – if you pick those things then it’s really not an issue, it’s an issue when you unwrap something. You unwrap fruit and turn it in to juice or fruit juice concentrate or jam, you take agave and try to pass it off as a health food, when it’s higher in fructose and high fructose corn syrup and beelines to your liver and tells your body to make fat and still be hungry. So, that’s where it gets hard, is if you’re trying to continue a processed foot diet, but we give you simple – I have shopping lists all set up so you can just go and go here’s what I need so you don’t have to become a supermarket sugar sleuth or just asleuth in general because you (Inaudible 00:19:04) you can eat grass fed beef – I’m going to get Marys chicken, I’m going to get pastured pork, I’m going to get wild salmon from Vital Choice, I know these are the dirty dozen, I have to buy organic in the vegetables section that these clean 15 I don’t have to spend the money there, you can get that from ewg.org, so it’s just simple stuff that you just print out so you don’t have to now spend four hours in the grocery store going oh, my gosh – ahhhh – right?

JONATHAN: JJ, so, what have you seen like for you personally, because you travel a lot –

JONATHAN: So take us through JJ at home and take us through JJ on the road, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

JJ: Okay, home and breakfast – home breakfast and on the road breakfast is the always the same because I travel with a Nutribullet, I travel with small boxes of coconut milk and I travel with my Virgin Diet shake that I’ve added extra fiber and chia to and right now because I’m recovering my total knee replacement I also threw in some collagen from our bulletproof buddy –Dave — how much do we love him? So, I travel with that. That’s what I always have and I also created Virgin Diet bars, I’m sorry, I sound like a commercial, but I needed this stuff –

JONATHAN: Yeah –

JJ: And I couldn’t find a bar out there that didn’t have GMOs. I actually talked to multiple bar manufacturers and every single one said we couldn’t guarantee no GMOs. Well, you’re not going to be able to be a 100 GMO free I don’t think, if you ever eat out, because the oils most of them are GMO, but I’m not going to do something I eat on a regular basis knowingly –

JONATHAN: Yeah.

JJ: Just GMOs, which is another subject. So, I always carry those with me – at home, it really depends on how lazy I am. I have two things in my freezer – I have Artisan bistro meals they made that are JJ Virgin Diet approved and then I also use peach Paleo meals, so I have those shoved in my freezer if I’m lazy. I have two houses and one’s just my studio and office and if I get on a roll, I just won’t leave, so that’s why I then will have my peach Paleo or my Artisan Bistro. If I end up needing a snack then I have the bar stuff there too, so that generally, what I eat at home is a typical lunch is a salad, mixed with Romaine and arugula –

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: I always have left over protein so if we made grass fed beef –

JONATHAN: Yeah –

JJ: Or wild salmon or chicken, we always have a stock mix, so I’ve two humongous teenage boys – 6’1,” and 6’3.”

JONATHAN: Wow.

JJ: And then I live in own reality show – my ex-husband lives with us and it’s all one big happy family and he’s a tennis guy, so I we go through a lot of food and a lot of laundry soap. I always cook extra protein, I always have loads of vegetables around and then I always make a big salad. That’s basically always my lunch is some big salad and if I’m out, my typical is to do a big Mexican style salad –

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: And do salad fajita vegetables, black beans, chicken, guacamole, salsa. That’s like my thing.

JONATHAN: Yeah.

JJ: Because if you look at the Virgin Diet plate, I got my Romaine, my peppers and onions are the veggie side of it, the non-starchy vegetables and then the salsa, and beans are my slow low carbs and then the chicken obviously is my clean lean protein and the guacamole is my healthy fat.

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: Easy. And dinner is usually sometimes again if I’m lazy and I will also sometimes do a second shake. And the way I make my shakes at home is I throw in avocado, half an avocado in too which I’m totally into. I’ve actually cut all fruit out, except avocado’s a fruit, but the fruity fruits, because I’m a fructose, I’m on a war against fructose –

JONATHAN: All right –

JJ: I test everything on myself – I’m sort of like bulletproof Dave in that way too. Both of us are off fruit. So, I’ve been doing my shakes with coconut milk, chia seeds, extra fiber, Virgin Diet shake mix, and avocado, which I love and if I have any in the house, which I don’t normally because it’s my crap. I’ll throw in some almond butter, but when of the things I tell people is, you obviously want to take the bad foods out of your house. That’s just mean. It’s mean and irresponsible to put like your favorite ice cream or whatever in the freezer and think you’re not going to have your evil twin come out a 10:00 and take it in bed with you. It’s going to happen. Don’t even go there – so I don’t have any crap in the house, nothing tempting – but too much healthy foods are also unhealthy –

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: And if you can down a jar of almond butter in a sitting, then probably that shouldn’t go in the house either, so, every once in awhile I might have it in for a shoot or something and then I get to have it, but it is – I swear it’s my crap, I sit there with a spoon trying to clean the jar like sides of the jar and the only way to clean the sides of the jar, you just dig deeper and deeper – pretty soon you’ve eaten the whole thing. Anyway, but dinner for me usually is I like to make some protein for the kids –

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: So, whatever we decide to do that night and then some vegetables or a salad or both, and then depending, it depends if we do some solo carbs and I’m currently going for a big Kabocha squash phase – have you tried Kabocha squash?

JONATHAN: I haven’t.

JJ: Oh, my gosh it is so – I lived in Japan, I was one of the people that brought aerobics to Japan way back when before I knew better – I’m so sorry it took (Inaudible 00:24:46)

JONATHAN: Oops – no I’m just kidding –

JJ: Yeah – who knew? (Inaudible 00:24:51) so maybe –

JONATHAN: There you go.

JJ: I crossed it off or – anyway when I lived in Japan I learned about Kabocha squash, but I’ve been doing more winter squashes because they’re so in low in sugar and they’re just nutrient dense and I’ve been really looking at what’s low in sugar, what’s really low in fructose or no fructose, what’s high in fiber and nutrient dense in my solo carbs, that’s how I pick my favs on that. So, and those are typical things and again, I’m all about making extras –

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: Because that’s lunch the next day and I think that really helps us save time and money, but if you look at it, it’s like lentil, Quinoa, Kabocha squash, broccoli, Romaine, these are not expensive foods.

JONATHAN: Yeah.

JONATHAN: Yeah.

JJ: I mean that’s like so where I spend it is on the grass fed beef and the wild salmon and things like that. That’s where I’ll put the money in.

JONATHAN: I love it JJ. Well, I know you are on a sugar crusade and you’re always on a practicality kick, so please tell us now what we can go out on the web, check out, go into bookstores, check out and learn practical steps, because again, you are so – money – you are top of your game at making this practical and doable. So, tell us where we can go to get that info.

JJ: Oh, thank you. I’m going to digress and give a little shout out to a great grocery store guy, I don’t know if you’ve seen this. You’ve seen the Calton’s Rich Food, Poor Food, right?

JONATHAN: Yes, yeah.

JJ: This is such an awesome book that I feel like it’s this best kept secret and I told them I just have to tell everybody about it – so, one of the things I think everybody should have in their success library — I mean obviously they should have, The Calorie Myth, dah – and The Virgin Diet – but you also should have that because that’s, that really helps you in the grocery store,just, plus it’s hilarious, I mean – Mira is so snarky, and how did you get away with those rude comments about all those companies – anyway, but for me like I wrote the Virgin Diet and the biggest thing that happened when I wrote the Virgin Diet was two things happened – people wanted – three things actually – people wanted recipes which blew my mind that they wanted more recipes, which is why we did the Virgin Diet cookbook and again Virgin Diet cookbook is out this week, February 18th, and I also did to celebrate it, I created four free videos and then a bunch of recipes, five recipes which they can get at the virgindietcookbook.com/jonathan and so that’s a huge resource and then the other one that I get asked is I get asked about sugar, so you’re going to have to wait until right after Halloween just when you’re in a sugar coma for that one – but, I get asked about exercise a lot and I just – it’s like I’ve got to focus (Inaudible 00:27:35) I think now that I’ve had this total knee replacement, now I really want to go do more exercise videos, just because so many people will say, oh, I can’t exercise because I don’t have time, intense burst training takes that away or I’m too old – I’m too out of shape – I’ve got this injury – it’s like well, all those reasons you have to do it –

JONATHAN: Yep.

JJ: And so I also have – I think it’s JJ’s fit club, you go to JJ’s fit club, we give away free 4ࡪ workouts. What I’m really about is I want to take any excuse you can possibly dreaming up right now — I don’t have time — It’s too expensive — I can’t get the information. I can’t buy the book, it’s like, well, the books are at the library and the information is free on my website, and the food’s not going to cost you any more –

JONATHAN: Yeah.

JJ: And it’s really much more about this. I think the reason people get into that kind of negative self-talk is because they’ve tried so many things for so long, they’ve fallen into the calorie trap –

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: Which is what we should call the – it’s the opposite of the Calorie – the truth about calories, they fall into calorie trap of trying to eat less and exercise more and they failed.

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: And then they tried harder –

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: And they failed more. They fail bigger and so at some point not only have you damaged your metabolism so much, now you can’t pull out of that as we know because you keep losing muscle, gaining fat, losing muscle gaining fat, but you more than that damaged your pyschi –

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: Because you now think – you know what, I guess this is just the way I am supposed to be and then again you go to your doctor and he says, well you’re just getting older, your hormones are shifting and this la-la-la-la, through genetics. The truth is, it’s like no, it’s not. What if – what if — how crappy you feel, your moodiness, you’re bloated, inability to lose weight, the cravings, the skin problems, feeling older, looking older than you really are, what if all of that was, you could change it, in a week, by changing what happened at the end of your fork and I’ve done it now for over a million people, I know you’ve done it too and I see it all the time and what I would want people listening to this, the biggest thing I can give them one thing — it would be hope –

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: To inspire them to just give it a shot. To try one more time. Just to do this and to take that time for themselves because what I see when they get on the other side is so hard when you’re sitting over here going, I’ve tried everything, and it just sounds like another thing – is just to do this. Just to let that go and go what would I do if I knew this was going to work?

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: What would I do? Well of course you would do it – and then where would that take me, like if you all sudden had great energy, your joints did not hurt anymore, I mean I’ve put off a total knee replacement for 20 years. When I walked in they go we don’t even understand how you’re walking and I wasn’t just walking –

JONATHAN: Yeah –

JJ: I was working out, I was doing – I have fitness videos and everything else and they’re like — we don’t understand and I go well, really the pain didn’t hurt me, I just saw an x-ray and saw how much it was throwing off my biomechanics and finally I better just do this now – it wasn’t a pain issue because of everything I was doing. I was on a massive anti-inflammatory diet and I was at the right weight and very strong, so what would happen if you lived your life like that? You could focus. You had great energy. Your mood was steady. You didn’t hurt, your skin (Inaudible 00:30:57) you looked younger, where would that allow you to go –

JONATHAN: Yeah –

JJ: How would that impact your family and everyone around you – we talk so much about wanting to do the best for our family. Well, the best thing you can do for your family is be the best role model.

JONATHAN: Uh-huh.

JJ: So, it starts with taking care of yourself, so that’s really my biggest message is that and to let people know it’s so much simpler and easier than they think it is.(tape mute at 31:27)

JJ: Well, thank you.

JONATHAN: That is brilliant. I could not think of a better way to close the show than that. That was absolutely fabulous and folks the thing that I think is most compelling about all of this is the fact that JJ lives this message. Prior to getting on this call, JJ just finished up a workout, she just had knee surgery, she’s on the road and you can see her, you’re seeing her right now. She is living her message, she’s doing it, she’s showing it’s possible and it’s practical and JJ I so appreciate you –

JJ: I know I can show you my knee scar –

JONATHAN: That’s okay, that’s okay. So, JJ just before we go, can you remind everyone of where they can check out those awesome resources, your new book, all that goodness.

JJ: Awesome, thank you. So, it’s the virgindietcookbook.com/jonathan, that’s four training videos, again, I’m giving you everything you need to get started and five of my favorite recipes from the Virgin Diet cookbook which is out this week.

JONATHAN: I love it, JJ well, we all wish you the best with your recovery, which you are clearly already dominating and I cannot wait – I cannot wait – you’ve got to promise to come back for that sugar book, because you know, you and I –

JJ: Awesome.

JONATHAN: Lock hands on our crusade against sugar, so that’s awesome.

JJ: Awesome, honey, I can’t wait. We’re going all out on that, or all in, rather.

JONATHAN: Love it, well JJ, thank you so much, best of luck here with the amazing launch and thank you for being the change you want to see in the world.


Qamar comments

For one moment, for one week, can we stop comparing atrocities please? Everything that happens during war is usually done in cold blood and is an atrocity (not saying it is a good thing btw!). So instead of minimizing one thing whilst focusing only on another thing. Instead of hating on a group of people, why not hate on the systems and philosophy/politics that caused the war (all wars), no matter who caused more damage for you? Afterall, usually, one sees his/her/family's/country's/ pain as the biggest and therefore will never see eye to eye.

Also, let's take the chance to really reflect on the cruelty of war, all of it, not that perpetuated by one side or other. Afterall usually war is caused by small groups of people, whilst the pain is suffered throughout countries. If you believe, pray for all victims big, small, soldiers or not. Every one and every side has lost family members, has had large death tolls.

And, hopefully, hopefully remember history so that it doesn't ever get repeated.

Killing human beings in that way, ensuring that those who did not die will never be able to live without the shadow of it on their minds, the repercussions of an atom bomb..let me remind you that the aftereffects of an atom bomb are not like that of any normal bomb.

Knowing all this, some people still agree with its use. Humans never learn, do they, and the winner always wins history!

I love broccoli, but do hate green peppers! I am neither American nor Japanese though.

Good, selfless and kind person!

really now? "not a violation of the law"?? HOW?! falsification of documents is legal?? I fail to comprehend!

So, where money is involved, the cost of future human lives do not count, do they? Do humans ever learn?

A lieutenant who has no self-control? That's exactly what the military doesn't need.. Poor children that died due to his selfishness, may they rest in peace.

I hope they will probe on how he behaves at work. I agree with @Smithinjapan , I too had read about suicides and unhappiness in the military. It does worry me. It is well and good to respect, but higher ups also have to respect, both their subordinates and their family.

both morning and before sleeping. In summer I also freshen up throughout the day.

Tell me one thing that ruins relationships, or the possibility of a relationship in the world.. Egoism :) At least he realizes that he wouldn't be comfortable in a relationship.

But..wow, 23 year old and not interested in sex? Are you kidding me. Maybe I get it! He gets so worried about ending up having to pay all his life if something goes wrong that it killed the pleasure for him. Still too young though.

To me, he sounds like a very old man, stubborn and unable to open up his heart. It is a pity. When you are really in love, money won't mater for quite a while. Wedding? Do a simple wedding. The wedding is for you and your spouse, not for the guests to "ooooh!" at.

Yes it is true. They also realize when their owner doesn't like a particular person, or if their owner is scared or feels threatened. On one occasion my dog chased away a person who had been stalking me for some time and every time he comes near my house, car or me, the dog will bark its head off and show its teeth. P.s.- my dog is a VERY gentle, quiet dog.

I just bought two carry on size backpacks that cost me USD280 in all, they just arrived yesterday. I was so happy!! Now I read this!! I wanted to save money too. So pissed!!

@Nakanoguy - someone needs a briefing on kimono throughout the years. The hat was worn when travelling, specifically by women as far as I know. It is known as " Ichime gasa". If I'm not misaken, it started in the Heian era. See the red 'sash' over the kimono? It is because the robes are tied up to ease travelling. Sweeping the floor wouldn't be a good idea. Sorry, I couldn't resist, I just love traditional clothes too much.. sorry for the mini lecture.

Magnus Roe: right hander here: I used to keep my mobile phone in my left leg trouser! Now the phones are too large and I have to keep it in my bag :(. Anyway, yes it can be awkward, even as a woman to try and get your phone out of your pocket on a full train or bus. Once I dropped my phone, another time I did brush against a guy's leg and he wasn't happy at all and accused me of being many things I'm never going to be. Saying 'sorry' only made him angrier and it was only thanks to an old lady who happened to know my family that he stopped accusing me. Whenever I meet the guy on the bus I make sure to avoid him.

School logic: Everything to make parents happy!

Ebisen: Really? I'm also from the EU!! I don't share your PoV! As I see it, nowadays most students have no concept of respect neither for themselves nor for their elders. They don't fear punishments because most students know that if they cry to mommy, mommy will run to school and all hell will break loose. Also, mommy and daddy will threaten the teacher in front of kid, which makes kid feel powerful..

Then, we wonder why the crime rate is increasing. When kid hits 18 and ends up in jail, the parents blame the education system..

I've experienced this both as a student and as a teacher. I hope you will never experience being humiliated by students in your class who openly tell you that you have no rights as a teacher. Why do you think teachers are scared to be alone with students?

Lucky to get it back! In this part of the world, I couldn't get back a handmade item!

@flash_gordon Sexual attraction comes pretty much at the end of my list. One can always find something sexy if one looks well enough :)

I don't need to date a man because I'm happily married. Anyway, no, I didn't choose my husband based on looks like he didn't choose me for my looks. Looks don't last, why should I bother? I fell in love with his personality, kindness and heart.

To be completely honest, my first impression of him was during a presentation when he talked about his hobbies, and I can freely say that is what made me interested. Seeing a guy talking passionately about what he likes doing best, it sent my heart fluttering (@CGB Spender). It was only after we started talking that I did start noticing things I find cute about his physique.

@Strangerland - That is true for me, and I learned from a young age that most men who go for the 'most beautiful/sexy' women (based specifically on looks) are not the kind of men I would want to build a family with. Also, many horror stories about men who left their wives when they didn't look as beautiful anymore (I also heard stories the other way round). In fact, when dating men, I made sure he'd see me in gym clothes and no make up before he makes up his mind he wants me.

All in all, I think, what's most important is that a man/woman fall in love with who the other TRULY is, not on expectations or temporary things. A marriage should last forever, so I try to base it on things that will last forever :) Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and anyway, doesn't last. Inner beauty can only shine more brightly.


14. Crispy Tofu and Rainbow Veg Sushi

This Crispy Tofu and Rainbow Veg Sushi is a great staple to know how to make, comes together relatively quickly (especially if you have some veggies pre-sliced and/or tofu pre-baked) and is always a winner with friends and family. Sushi isn’t hard to make at all, you don’t need a special rolling mat or any special tools. Just a pot to cook rice in and a cutting board. Enjoy!


The best workout is the one you'll actually do, so finding something you enjoy is key to making your active lifestyle stick. Before her surgery, Cax loved swimming, running, and playing basketball. Instead of giving up on those passions post-surgery, she figured out how to adapt them to her new reality.

"I taught myself how to swim again and focused on building my upper body so that I'd be able to rock climb without much lower limb strength," she explains. "I also didn't stop playing basketball. I started exploring adaptive sports and learned that I could play wheelchair basketball."

Take inventory of the types of exercise that make you feel excited to get moving. If going for a run is the most boring activity you can imagine, don't do that! If spending time outside lights you up, opt for yard work as your workout of the day. The endorphins and total-body benefits count just the same, no matter which modality you choose.
