It ain’t easy, this losing weight stuff. If it were, we’d all be at the beach showing off our bikini bodies instead of sitting inside writing articles like this. Some celebs have managed to drop the pounds recently and graciously shared how they got the results (at least we think they’re being honest):
Debra Messing: The former Will & Grace star has gone down a few dress sizes (a total of about 20 pounds) in the last two or so years by making “a very, very big change to the way I approach nutrition,” she told ABC News. Truth is Messing was tired of being tired all the time from eating “crappy food.”
Kim Kardashian: Even though she has yet to smile for the cameras since giving birth to North(OK, the paparazzi were merciless) the reality queen is pleased with her ability to shed approximately 50 pounds of baby weight. The intense workouts helped as did a so-called ketogenic diet, consisting of 1,800 to 2,200 calories a day and a limited carb intake. We’re predicting she’ll take at least a few bites of wedding cake, though; she and Kanye West are reportedly planning not just one but three ceremonies, one in L.A. and two in Paris.
Ivanka Trump: Don't look for the business mogul/designer to be the face of Jamba Juice any time soon. The mother of two tells Shape magazine that she tried a juice cleanse and it was “a total disaster” and that she was “on the brink of starvation.” Trump lasted about eight hours before going back to solids, but still managed to lose 30 pounds since giving birth to her son in October 2013. She also keeps moving, by spinning, doing Pilates or hitting the tennis court and golf course (helps that dear old dad has all those places to play).
Roseanne Barr: She’s thinner but still funny. The Last Comic Standing judge added a coy, backward facing photo to Twitter along with the spot-on caption ribbing selfie-happy Kim K.: “Hey! #Kanye.” The National Enquirer reports the vegetarian, 61, is an exercise fanatic and wears a bracelet-like gadget called UP, which tracks your movements and the number of steps taken each day.
Rosie O’Donnell: The comedian will be sporting a new, svelter silhouette when she returns to The View in May. “Almost 50 lbs off — I can see it now,” read a recent Tweet. The 52-year-old reportedly underwent weight-loss surgery last year after a series of health issues including a heart attack in 2012.
