In the new issue of Shape, Eiza González, currently starring in Godzilla vs. Kong, reveals that she not only embraces her body—cellulite and all—but celebrates it. "So happy to share the May issue for Shape," she captioned a photo of the magazine's cover on Instagram. "We spoke about how the fat on my hip is my favorite part of my body and why I feel sexier than ever when I see my thighs and butt jiggle. Something I never felt in my 20s. A self love journey to womanhood." Read on for 5 key takeaways from the Shape interview, and to see the splashy red swimsuit she wears on the cover. 1 She Embraces Her Body CREDIT: THOMAS WHITESIDEGonzález exudes self-confidence—but she wasn't always so embracing of her body. "Maybe four years ago, I went on a trip with my then boyfriend and got photographed by paparazzi at the beach. You could see cellulite on my leg in the photos, and I was so embarrassed," she confessed to Shape. "Now I feel so sexy when I see my cellulite or my butt — that it's big, with little dimples. I feel so sexy just having a jiggle, or when I sit and my legs create that little fat on the side of my hip. I really do. I feel like a woman, I can move my body, and it makes me feel really empowered, something that I never would have felt in my 20s." 2 She Trains Hard ShutterstockGonzález is a fan of traditional weight and interval training. "This body needs to be happy by exercising, because I feel so good when I exercise. I go between three workouts," she said to Shape. "I do a lot of weight lifting with high weight, low reps — that's something that this Latina butt needs to get toned. I'm also training for a movie"—she's starring in Michael Bay's Ambulance with Jake Gyllenhaal—"by doing a lot of intervals: cardio mixed with movement." 3 She Has One Cheat Day Per Week Photo by Matt Winkelmeyer/VF20/WireImageGonzález has one major diet trick: one dedicated cheat day per week. "One day a week, I eat whatever I want. That's my one rule," she said to Shape. "I'll eat brownies. I'll eat pizza. I'll eat all the foods I want to eat because that's what this body needs to be happy." 4 She Cooks Her Own Food Getty ImagesShe also fuels her body with food cooked by her own hands. "This past year, I started finding new recipes and trying to learn how to cook. That really motivated me. I realized that I'm cleaning my system from the inside out, and it really began to show. It was beautiful because I've never felt as healthy as I feel right now," she admitted to Shape. 5 She Also Does Pilates ShutterstockGonzález is also a fan of this celeb-endorsed workout. "I swear by Pilates, and I die by Pilates," she told the magazine. "It works out muscles that I don't work out ever. Like this little one…between my fourth and sixth left ribs."For more from González, see the full interview at Shape.

There may be no food more comforting and delicious than pizza. Meat, veggies, cheeses, all loaded on top of buttery bread and baked to perfection. It doesn't get much better than that.Unfortunately, even though it's a beloved favorite, pizza also may cause some health problems or discomfort for people with certain dietary restrictions or complications.So who should give up pizza?Well, no one, exactly. We aren't here to tell you that you need to give up one of the most satisfying foods out there—especially because it's important that you eat the foods you love! (And try adding any of The 7 Healthiest Foods to Eat Right Now to your list of favorites.)"Including your favorite foods in your diet is a crucial part of health because food should also be bringing you happiness and satisfaction," says Laura Burak, MS, RD, author of Slimdown with Smoothies and founder of Laura Burak Nutrition.But there are certain types of people who may want to be careful when choosing the type of pizza they eat and how often they consume it."If you cannot tolerate pizza for health reasons, there are so many options available these days to accommodate any allergy or preference," says Burak.Who exactly are the people that need to be careful when it comes to eating pizza?If you have a gluten intolerance, wheat allergy, or lactose intolerance.According to the American College of Allergies, Asthma, and Immunology, there is actually no such thing as a gluten allergy. There are gluten intolerances or wheat allergies, with one of the most severe being Celiac disease. Celiac deals with your digestive tract, and ingesting wheat gluten can be an incredibly uncomfortable and painful experience for those with Celiac. Many people often diagnose themselves with a gluten intolerance without consulting a doctor, but the ACAAI highly recommends seeing a specialist before eliminating it from your diet.If someone with a wheat allergy or gluten intolerance were to eat a standard slice of pizza, they may experience symptoms such as hives, nausea, headaches, or a runny nose. The good news is that with all of the options out there, it has become easier to make adjustments. So those who have Celiac can still enjoy pizza! It just has to be a little different.You can try eating pizza with gluten-free bread crust, cauliflower crust, or crusts made from another vegetable like broccoli or kale crust. It's also a good idea to check and make sure your cheeses and other toppings are gluten-free as well.If you are lactose intolerant, you'll still be able to eat certain types of cheese on your pizza, but it may require you to cook your own at home. If you're not a fan of dairy-free cheese, you can try cheeses like gorgonzola, aged parmesan, gruyere, or fontina, which all contain <0.1 grams of lactose per 100 grams. Depending on your level of intolerance, you may be OK with mozzarella (0.7 grams per 100 grams) or cheddar (0.5 grams per 100 grams). Some restaurants may use multiple types of cheeses though, so it is always safer to make your own or order something with dairy-free cheese. (If you're looking for more ideas, check out the easy way to make healthier comfort foods.)And if you happen to have another health condition, you're going to want to monitor your pizza intake…If you have high cholesterol.According to Harvard School of Public Health, your cholesterol levels are more heavily influenced by the fat and carbohydrates you consume, not necessarily the actual cholesterol in a food item. And according to John Hopkins Medicine, the best way to eat healthy when you're battling your cholesterol levels is to do your best to lower your saturated and trans fats.If you're a pizza-lover with high cholesterol, it might be helpful to avoid delivery pizza when possible. While you don't have to avoid Domino's forever, it's important to monitor how often you order delivery and look for ways to make some adjustments. You could always try a pizza night and create your own, which will allow you to control your ingredients.It would be too cruel of a fate to have to give up pizza forever. But if you have certain dietary complications, it may be good to watch how much you're eating, what type, and how balanced the rest of your diet is."My clients often report pizza as one of the foods they love the most [and] tend to avoid because of health and weight reasons, but I know that it can absolutely be part of a healthy diet as long as you balance it out with other foods," says Burak.
Today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration released a joint statement on reports that the Johnson&Johnson vaccine can provoke cerebral venous sinus thrombosis—a rare blood clotting condition that can be deadly. According to their statement there have been a total of six cases, occurring among women between the ages of 18 and 48, with symptoms arising 6 to 13 days after vaccination. "I know there are people who have gotten the vaccine who are probably very concerned," they addressed at a media briefing later in the day. "For people who've got the vaccine more than a month ago, the risk to them is very low at this time." However, "for people who recently got the vaccine within the last couple of weeks, they should be aware to look for any symptoms." Read on to learn about the symptoms you should look out for if you have received the Johnson&Johnson vaccine—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise. 1 You May Have a Severe Headache The Michigan Comprehensive Stroke Center explains that the most common symptom of Sinus Vein Thrombosis is a severe headache, "often the worst headache that a patient has ever had," they point out. "It can be of sudden onset, develop over a few hours, or develop over a few days." 2 You May Have Abdominal Pain According to the FDA, pain in the abdominal region is one of the main symptoms to watch out for. 3 You May Have Leg Pain Michigan Comprehensive Stroke Center explains that another symptom can be experienced in the leg or arm, which they describe as "numbness or weakness" of either or both limbs. 4 You May Have Shortness of Breath Shortness of breath or a difficulty breathing can be a sign you have a blood clot. 5 What Symptoms You Should Worry About Most The blood clots "have usually occurred at least about a week after vaccination and not longer than three weeks after vaccination, with a median of about nine days after vaccination," said Dr. Anne Schuchat, Principal Deputy Director, CDC. "We know that for these vaccines, for the first several days after vaccination, there are flu like symptoms which can include headache. So I think for the internist out there and the primary care providers, who are caring for patients, if they're seeing a flu like symptoms and the headache for the first few days after my vaccination," that's fine but "it would be more important that if somebody presented to an emergency room with a very severe headache or with blood clots that—a history of prior vaccination be elicited and then appropriate management be instituted. So if someone ends up with a very severe headaches, any types of shortness of breath, pain in their legs, pain in their abdomen, that's so severe that they would want to seek medical attention, and if there are low platelets at that time—one needs to consider this entity." 6 What To Do If You Experience Any Symptoms Like These "You should contact your healthcare provider and seek medical treatment," if you experience the above symptoms. However, they point out that "these symptoms are different from a mild flu like symptoms, fever and so forth that many people experience in a couple of days after receipt of the vaccine." They also urge the importance of getting vaccinated with the other two vaccines—Pfizer and Moderna. "We are not seeing these clotting events with low platelet counts with the other two vaccines. People who have vaccine appointments with the other two vaccines should continue with their appointments," they stated. 7 Keep Protecting Yourself and Others Finally, keep following Dr. Anthony Fauci's fundamentals and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live—wear a face mask that fits snugly and is double layered, don't travel, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

Experts have been warning for several months that the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over, and that a fourth surge was not only likely, but inevitable. Now, this predicted spike of cases is a reality in one part of the country, and according to one top virus expert, this state needs to consider shutting down to save lives—while another warns it may happen in your state, too. Read on to find out what state should shut down per the expert—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise. 1 Michigan Should "Shut Down" Says Virus Expert Darren P. Mareiniss, MD, FACEP, Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine Sidney Kimmel Medical College – Thomas Jefferson University, agrees with Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who yesterday recommended that the state of Michigan consider a shut down in response to their surge of COVID infections versus amp up vaccination, as recommended by the state's Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. "I agree with the CDC director," he tells Eat This, Not That! Health. "Michigan is in the middle of an evolving crisis. The infection rates are simply too high. There is really risk of overwhelming the state's healthcare resources. Voluntary mitigation is not working." As a result, Dr. Mareiniss believes that the governor should ban indoor dining and other high risk activities immediately. Read on for what this means when it comes to a potential surge in your state. 2 The CDC Chief Also Says Michigan Needs to "Flatten The Curve" With Shutdown The Michigan Governor has asked that the White House send more vaccine their way. "The answer is not necessarily to give vaccine," Dr. Walensky said at a White House news conference on Monday. "The answer to that is to really close things down, to go back to our basics, to go back to where we were last spring, last summer, and to shut things down, to flatten the curve, to decrease contact with one another, to test to the extent that we have available to contact trace." 3 Another Virus Expert Says That Michigan Should Serve as a Warning Michael Osterholm, the noted epidemiologist, Regents Professor, and Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, says Michigan should serve as a warning for us all. "These variants have been game-changers. And in particular, right now on an international stage, understand we are entering the darkest days," Osterholm said Thursday on his podcast. "Those that don't want to believe it, that's your problem. If you go look at the numbers, it's painful to see what's happening globally." He added: "We're not driving this tiger, we're riding it." 4 There are "Worrisome Increases" in Other Parts of America, Too The New York Times reported on Tuesday that while the South is doing relatively well in terms of low infection rates, the Upper Midwest and Northeast are experiencing troubling numbers, with Michigan faring the worst surge of all and the most drastic increase in both cases and hospitalization. Illinois and Minnesota are also experiencing "worrisome increases."RELATED: This COVID Vaccine Has the Most Side Effects, Study Says 5 How to Stay Safe No Matter Where You Live So follow Fauci's fundamentals and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live—wear a face mask that fits snugly and is double layered, don't travel, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.
