Chris Evans has revealed the extreme dieting tactic he uses to lose weight.

The Virgin Radio Breakfast Show host admitted that he sometimes fasts for as long as 16 hours in a bid to shed pounds.

Speaking on his show, the 53-year-old opened up about his extreme technique after a member of his team offered him a brownie.

He said: "I do this 12 hour fast, which I have never talked about on the radio.

"But I don't eat for 12 hours a day as it improves everything. 16 hours is even better, but 12 hours is easy especially if you do a breakfast show.

"If you get up at silly o'clock, not eating for a 12 hour period is very easy. It is about now [7:40am] I could have it now. I mean I can't really."

Chris is also an avid runner and is taking part in the Amsterdam Marathon later this year.

He's running to raise funds for charity Dementia Revolution.

He said on his show: "One and a half million people are affected by dementia in one way or another.... This is for Dame Barbara Windsor and Scott [her husband].

"It is for Dementia Revolution, that is that is why we are going there, that is why we are running."

The star is also auctioning off 50 seats on a chartered plane from Farnborough, in Hampshire, to Amsterdam for the charity.

Joaquin Phoenix became the star of director Todd Phillips Joker in a roundabout way. He was never looking to be a big box office superhero juggernaut, nor did he have anobsession to play a comic character. He wanted to get into a complicated characters head and the R-rated take on the Batman villain gave him the opportunity. The films win at the Venice Film Festival has kickstarted buzz for his performance and the film at large, but Phoenix and Phillips are still looking to take fans behind the scenes to understand how the gritty origin story was put together including aspects like Phoenixs extreme weight loss.

Speaking to The New York Times, Phoenix was candid about his experiences with losing weight for roles. Its a horrible way to live, Phoenix said. In fact, when conceiving of his personal Joker, the films Arthur Fleck, he had a totally different vision for the characters build. I think he should be kind of heavy, the actor explained. But his director disagreed. Todd was like, I think you should do the real thin person, said Phoenix, referencing the more classical Joker look from the comics and animated shows that made the Clown Prince of Crime into an otherworldly spindle. To make that a reality, Phoenix needed to lose a lot of weight: 52 pounds in total.

Its been reported that this extreme weight loss had a psychological impact on his performance, which also counted dancing, greasepaint application, and joke-journaling among its many preparatory activities. It turns out that affects your psychology, Phoenix said. You start to go mad."

At that point, minor complications on set like ditching scenes when he wasnt vibing with them seem par for the course. In the middle of the scene, hell just walk away and walk out, Phillips said. And the poor other actor thinks its them and it was never them it was always him, and he just wasnt feeling it. But then well take a walk and well come back and well do it, Phillips said. But its not like he was overly difficult for his co-stars. Joaquin was very intense in what he was doing, as it should be, as he should be, said Robert De Niro, who plays a self-referential talk show host. Theres nothing to talk about, personally, on the side, Lets have coffee. Lets just do the stuff.

In fact, Phoenix was so committed to the character study side of the film that the comic elements were road bumps rather than perks. He never liked saying the name Thomas Wayne, Phillips said. Makes sense that this Joker will never meet Robert Pattinson's Batman.It would have been easier for him if the movie was called Arthur and had nothing to do with any of that stuff. But in the long run, I think he got it and appreciated it.

Will fans appreciate Phoenixs sacrifice and Phillips vision of the infamous character? Or will Phoenixs idea of the villain, heavy and strange, go unfulfilled? Audiences can see for themselves when Joker hits theaters on Oct. 4.

Janine Allis , "The Godmother" ofAustralianSurvivor,has spoken candidly about her 44 days in the game and the toll it took on her body.

Like many former-contestants the Aussie businesswoman revealed the extreme amount of weight she lost on the show.

I was BONE," she told "I had no protection against the cold, so it was really tough. I had Pia Miranda as my snuggle buddy and water bottle thats all you have to keep you warm, theres no blankets, theres no pillow. But I was skinny. I couldnt even sit on the ground; it was just bone on dirt.

Watch below to hear Janine's first thoughts after being booted...

However, it seemed there was a couple of upsides to the notoriously scant diet.

People in general seemed really healthy: Their skin was clear, their eyes were white," the 55-year-old said. "Sure, we were all very fatigued because we didnt get enough calories but for instance, the ex-athletes whod had a lot of injuries, and a lot of inflammation around those injuries, that basically vanished."

Its because we were eating food that was pretty much natural, with no artificial flavours or preservatives. Take all of that out of our diet, and people were actually really healthy. I found it a really interesting social experiment.

RELATED: Pia Miranda Had No Idea She Was Living With An Autoimmune Disease Until It Flared Up On 'Survivor'

While Janine was one of the strongest contenders on the reality TV show, the Boost CEOinvestor said her time on the show was incredibly challenging.

I watched enough of the show to understand what It would be like but nothing prepares you for a storm thats coming in sideways at two in the morning and youre starving, freezing cold and wet to the bone," she told "Even watching it back now, you cant get the full impact of just how horrific it was. It was wild.

Aaron Carter recently revealed that he'd received diagnoses of multiple-personality disorder, schizophrenia, and acute anxiety.

"I'm manic depressive," Carter shared in a preview of Thursday's episode of the talk show "The Doctors," which was published by People. "I'm prescribed to Xanax, Seroquel, gabapentin, hydroxyzine, trazodone, omeprazole."

After holding up a bag of his prescription medications, Carter added: "This is my reality. Hi. I have nothing to hide."

The 31-year-old singer previously appeared on "The Doctors" in 2017 to seek help for drug addiction and a variety of other health concerns, including extreme weight loss. At the time, Carter said he took a variety of prescription drugs "as needed" and "not to get high."

He also acknowledged, however, that he would sometimes mix benzodiazepines with opiates, which can be a lethal combination. Carter's sister Leslie died in 2012 from an accidental overdose.

"I don't want to be on these," Carter said on the 2017 episode. "I've been to multiple psychiatrists, I've been to multiple therapists, and nothing has ever helped me and truly worked the way that this is starting to and this show is starting to."

Now, Carter says "The Doctors" is responsible for saving his life.

"I was in a really terrible place," he said on Thursday's episode. "I was abusing medications. I was in a toxic relationship. I was in complete denial. I was so into the addiction, I was just like, 'I'm just going to let myself die.'

"I still struggle, but I wake up every morning. I'm creative," he continued. "I'm starting to get acclimated to my medications. I gained 45 pounds. I manage my career, I negotiate my contracts. That's what it's like for me being sober."

Carter's new episode of "The Doctors" will address his sobriety and mental health, including his recent rants about gun ownership. It will largely focused on his issues with his mother, who struggles with alcoholism.

The two-part interview on the syndicated show is scheduled to air Thursday and Friday.

Sorry to state the obvious, but periods kinda suck. They're pretty much always at least a mild nuisance, but then there are those times when getting your period absolutely cant be in the cards.

Maybe you have a big vacation coming up and dont want to deal with tampons or menstrual cups while youre hiking up a mountain. Or maybe theres a big event on the horizon that just isn't flow-friendly, like, uh, your wedding day when you might be wearing a big white dress (if that's your style).

If you've ever Googled for info on how to stop your period in these times of desperation, you may have stumbled across some, er, interesting suggestions for how to get rid of it faster (uh, drinking vinegar to stop your period? WTF?).

But the truth is, the science is really only there for one stopping-your-period hack: birth control. And most doctors will warn you not to fall for those other woo-woo tricks on internet message boardsbut I'll get to those later. First...

An anatomy lesson: Your uterus builds up a lining of blood and tissue each month just in case your egg gets fertilized. If no little sperm find your egg, your body sheds it allegg, blood, and tissue (thats your period).

Behind the process are a couple of hormones called estrogen and progesterone, according to the Merck Manual. And when you're on hormonal birth control (which is made with synthetic hormones), it manipulates your natural levels of estrogen and progesterone to keep you from getting pregnant typically by stopping your body from ovulating and/or by causing a change in the thickness of the mucus in the cervix to make it harder for sperm to get to the egg.

These are some of the popular types of birth control that can help stop your period:

It's always wise to talk to your doctor first about stopping your period with birth control. They can advise you as to which method might be the best fit for you and your lifestyle.

Well, not exactly. If youre using a progestin-only contraception, like an IUD, the disrupt in hormones will change the uterine lining and make it thinner. Many people have a lighter period or stop having a period at all when they have an IUD, Dr. McClellan notes. But if you have an IUD, you kind of have to wait to see how your body reacts to it. If your period gets lighter or goes away after a few months, it'll typically stay that way once your body adjusts. It's impossible to predict if your period will totally disappear, though.

Of course, your period would start back up once the IUD is removed. Nothing (except menopause and certain medical conditions) will get rid of your period for good.

With birth control pills or a method like the ring, if you don't skip the placebo pills or immediately put your next ring in, you'll likely get some bleeding again. A heads up that you might still experience spotting or other symptoms, like breast tenderness, even when you skip the placebo pills or pop a ring in; it's not always foolproof. So you may want to be prepared with a light tampon or panty liner if you're worried about spotting at all.

One important note: Although many insurance companies will cover continuous and cyclic birth control pill packs, its worth letting your doctor know that you are planning to take your birth control this way so that the prescription is written correctlyyou'll need more packs than normal in a year. And if you find yourself skipping several or *always* forgoing the placebo pills, you may want to talk to your doc about switching to a new kind of birth control. Some pill packs allow you to have a period only four times a yearso if that sounds attractive, make an appointment.

Sorry, the answer is no. Once the blood is in motion, nothing will stop it. You just have to ride it out. Your best bet is to think ahead and plan in advance if you know you want to skip over the placebo pills at any given time. You can't just skip it for, say, one night that you decide you don't want to bleed.

Yes, you can if you're on the Pill! Its pretty simple really: If youre planning on skipping that period you should take the pills up until the placebos and move up to the next pill pack in order to not get your period that month, Dr. McClellan explains. And if you want to go back to taking the placebo pills in a pack at some point, that's totally fine.

Sorry, thats a big nope. Dr. McClellan has never even heard of this myth, but she still ensures that its exact thata myth.

Vinegar can have good health effects, she says, but she has no idea how it would stop a period...because it doesnt make any physiological sense. Neither will drinking lemon juice or any specific types of food, for that matter. Unless what you're consuming affects estrogen and progestin levels, nothing will delay or halt your periods (aside from, yes, birth control!).

Lastly, if you have skipped several periods in a row without an IUD or birth control pills, you should check with a doctor to make sure everything is okay. If your period stops spontaneously as a result of something other than the pill than you need to really look at what caused it, Dr. McClellan says. Missing periods could be a sign of extreme weight loss (associated with eating disorders), polycystic ovary syndrome, ovarian failure, pelvic inflammatory disease, and uterine fibroids, among other things, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Amy Dickinson Published 12:00 a.m. ET April 11, 2019

Dear Amy: I have been married for 16 years, and have been with my wife for 18 years.

She is 5 feet, 4 inches tall and has always weighed around 200 to 230 pounds. Eight months ago she had gastric bypass and now weighs 135 pounds.

I know she is healthier and she is happier, but I am miserable, as I feel I lost the person I fell in love with.

She makes me feel like I am a bad person for not liking a skinnier wife, but I dont find her sexually attractive anymore.

I am not sure what to do at this point. How can I save my marriage and find her more attractive? Do I have to settle? I am 6 feet, 4 inches tall and 320 pounds and have been heavy my entire life.

Hefty and Confused

Dear Hefty: Extreme weight loss is a major stressor on relationships, for some of the reasons you are citing. When a person literally transforms into another person, they move through the world differently, with different interests, needs, habits and perceptions. (Its not just about how your jeans fit.)

Spouses often assume designated roles, and now your wifes role has changed. But what about you?

I imagine she is also receiving a lot of positive attention, which might make your alienation and disorientation worse. Her new body might also make you feel self-conscious about yours.

Read more:

Because this change is so extreme, and so rapid, I hope you will be patient as you both adjust. Please seek professional help, as you transition through this marital disruption.

The hospital that performed her surgery should offer a referral for a counselor specializing in this common relationship response.

Dear Amy: Am I being heartless for wanting to cut off my 24-year-old daughter? She is engaged to be married in the fall of 2020, but she is a full-time student who does pet-sitting as a part-time job. She lives with her boyfriend, and he has a full-time job.

She and her boyfriend moved away to her college city almost three years ago and we see them when they visit once or twice a year.

We have younger children and feel that although she is still a full-time student, we have to set a cut-off age and stop paying for her cellphone bill. This is the only expense we pay for her. We arent in the financial position to help any of our children with college tuition.

My daughter got extremely angry when I brought up the subject of her taking over her phone bill, saying she doesnt have the money, yet I know she pays for video-streaming subscriptions, and is going to a concert for a performer she has seen a couple times already.

She finishes her very demanding semester in May and says that she might take one class during the summer. How can I make her realize that she is being unreasonable? Or am I being heartless?

I want to tell her to get another job during the summer and stop acting like an entitled brat!

Mad Mom Lisa

Dear Mad Mom: The cellphone bill seems to have emerged as a major marker of emerging adulthood. (I was inordinately proud of my own daughter when she suddenly suggested that she would take over the cost of her own phone and yes, she was 24.)

You are not being heartless. But your daughter and her younger siblings will not know what your boundaries are unless you establish them.

She finishes her demanding semester in May. This would be the perfect time to transition away from your cellphone plan, and onto her own (or with her fianc).

Her pet-sitting business should pick up during the summer. She could work it around another part-time job, and the class she plans to take.

I dont think it is necessary or even useful to try to convince a young person that her expectations are unreasonable. You simply say, This is whats going to happen. And if she grumbles about it so what? Your message to her should always be, You can handle it. We have confidence in you. Youll be fine. (Please, dont call her a brat.)

Dear Amy: Dont Knock My Stuff was upset that her husband seems to find and share negative information about things she enjoys.

I too have the same curiosity as her husband, and have ruined things for my wife.

I think the writer was being oversensitive, but that the husband clearly had taken it too far.

Been There

Dear Been There: Thank you.
