For some people, getting healthy isn’t just about looking good for swimsuit season, it’s also about making sure that they’re able to live a long and healthy life with the people they love. The former “The View” co-host, Raven-Symoné, has often battled with her weight and health, but after marrying her wife, Miranda Pearman-Maday, the “Cheetah Girls” star decided to take charge of her health and future.
By removing added sugar from her diet and eating healthy foods prepared by her wife, she has successfully shed a whopping 40 pounds!
Ayesha Curry - 35 Pounds
After admitting that “Fitness wasn’t really a part of my lifestyle,” cookbook author and television star Ayesha Curry decided to shake things up when it came to getting healthy. She began practicing intermittent fasting, working out more, and focusing on portion control in order to shed some weight and gain more energy.
That said, the Jamaican-Canadian star still occasionally indulges in her favorite meal — oxtail rice, peas, and fried plantains. Thanks to these lifestyle changes, Ayesha says, “I feel like I’m in the best shape of my life.” We couldn’t agree more!
Peter Facinelli - 30 Pounds
Actor Peter Facinelli may have played a supernatural being in the “Twilight” films, but in real life, he was dealing with the same issues as us mere mortals — weight gain. Working with a hypnotherapist, Peter began practicing mindful eating — being more aware of the food you are consuming.
He also began to meditate, which helped balance his stress levels, and made mindless snacking a thing of the past. Adopting these healthy eating habits has helped the actor shed 30 pounds, and he’s looking better than ever!
Jodie Sweetin - 37 Pounds
While some people lose weight by changing the way they eat or how often they exercise, some people lose weight without even realizing it! “Fuller House” star Jodie Sweetin lost close to 40 pounds during a particularly stressful moment in her life.
The actress, who described herself as a “mess” during the time of the event, completely lost her appetite. Thankfully, Jodie is feeling much better these days, and looks a lot healthier too! We wish her well on her mental health journey!
Ree Drummond - 60 Pounds
As a cookbook author and television star, “Pioneer Woman” Ree Drummond found it difficult to reach her fitness goals. Ree explained that she hit “rock bottom” one night when she was enjoying a late-night snack of chips and salsa. The realization that she had gone “overboard” led her to begin a weight-loss journey resulting in losing close to 60 pounds!
Though she still indulges in her famously decadent desserts, she joked that “I just eat a Rhode Island-sized piece instead of a Texas-sized piece.” Good advice!
