These Celebrities Share Weight Loss Techniques
Despite their riches, stars have weight issues just like us. Musicians, actors, television personalities, and even celebrity chefs have struggled to find the right weight loss techniques. Just imagine the pressure of stardom plus a few extra pounds that someone has to bear. Thanks to the fitness trainers who are often sought-after by the gods and goddesses of Hollywood and the tremendous effort that they put in, these five celebs have been able to do away with their extra weight.
While skimming through the celeb weight loss success stories, keep in mind that not all weight loss techniques are suitable for everybody. You need to choose your diet carefully and possibly consult a nutritionist or a fitness trainer before choosing a weight loss plan.
Al Roker Followed an Old-Fashioned Weight Loss Technique
Al Roker, arguably the most famous weatherman America has ever seen, struggled all his life with his weight. Weighing in at around 340 lbs, Al Roker managed to lose some 30 or 40 lbs on occasions, only to put it back on. He decided to go for a gastric bypass surgery, which helped him shed some pounds.
However, Roker regained much of his weight and had to admit that portion control and regular workout were integral to his weight loss techniques. He weighs roughly 200 lbs now. Al Roker’s weight loss story is pretty similar to that of Jennifer Hudson and Missy Elliott, who took workout seriously to lose their extra weight.
Chaz Bono’s Gender Reassignment Surgery Helped Him Lose His Weight
Bono, as most of us know, was born a woman and later opted for gender transformation surgery. From 2008 to 2010, Bono went under the knife and officially changed his name to Chaz (earlier, he was known as Chastity).
Bono thinks his gender reassignment surgery is the only reason he could lose weight. He has lost 85 pounds and maintains that regular exercise and diet keep him in the pink. If you don’t want to go under the knife like Chaz, here are the fastest ways to lose your weight without having surgery.
Christina Aguilera’s Weight Loss Techniques Included Limiting Alcohol Intake
Christina is another Hollywood celeb of our generation who used to face critical comments from the notorious paparazzi for her weight. It’s true that she put on a lot of weight since her split-up in 2010, and tabloids couldn’t help obsessing over her curves.
Baby Jane finally managed to shed about 49 pounds, which turned the tables on the nitpicking tabloid journalists. She later revealed that she followed a strict diet rich in lean protein to lose her weight. Oh, and she also put a cap on her alcohol intake. Can you do a Christina?
Drew Carey Followed the No-Carb Route to Lose 80 Pounds
Drew Carey, The Price Is Right host, now looks totally different from the fictionalized version of himself on The Drew Carey Show. He maintained that he does cardio, follows a strict diet, and leads a painfully disciplined life.
Carey, however, also abstained from carbs, avoiding literally everything from beans to bread. He also trained under the guidance of a fitness trainer and lost about 80 pounds. He is now completely free of diabetes and does not require medication. Remember the age-old saying “Your Health Is Your Wealth”?
Celebrity Chef Tom Kerridge Followed a Dynamic Diet to Get Rid of His Weight
English chef Tom lost a staggering 168 lbs (or 12 stone) in just three years, and he says that he followed a ‘stay happy way’ to lose his weight. What exactly is a ‘stay-happy way’ to lose your weight? Well, in Tom’s case, he went for a dopamine diet, which includes dairy products, good meat, and even chocolate.
However, he steered clear of cakes, pastries, puddings, pies, and bread. He also stopped drinking. Can you follow a low-carb diet like Tom and stop drinking completely? We guess it will do the trick for you as well.
Weight loss can change your whole character. That always amazed me: Shedding pounds does change your personality. It changes your philosophy of life because you recognize that you are capable of using your mind to change your body.
