Chaz Bono announced his aim to drop 50 lbs in weight in November and thanks to a new and improved eating plan he just might get there.
Chaz Bono, 43, has showed off the results of his 43 lb weight loss after making the commitment at the end of last year with Dr. Travis Stork on an episode of The Doctors.
He started off weighing 250lbs.
Chaz Bono told People magazine: “I’ve been sticking to a really strict diet. It’s not any type of starvation thing. I’m just cutting out a lot of stuff and eating primarily protein and vegetables and fruit.”
Now he has upped his goal to dropping a total of 80 lbs.
The transgender star made a TV appearance on which he made the pledge when he was at the most uncomfortable size of his life.
Chaz Bono lost his first portion of weight by exercising and using the easy Freshology delivered-meal plan.
He will feature in a catch-up episode of The Doctors on Wednesday.
Chaz Bono said about kick-starting his routine: “It hasn’t been that long, but when you’re a guy and you’ve got a lot of weight to lose, the initial stuff comes off pretty easily. You start to see results and you want to keep going.
“It’s not to say you don’t have cravings sometimes, but I’m very happy with how I’m looking and feeling. Especially when I’m traveling or I have to go out to eat or whatever, it’s actually kind of easier than I thought to [eat healthy], so that’s been good.”
He explained: “It’s getting harder. I’m just kind of at a little plateau right now, which I think is pretty normal, according to my doctor. The weight was falling off at first, and now it’s just coming off slower.
“The smaller you are, the harder it is to lose weight. The last 10 or 20 lbs. are really hard to get off. I would like to lose more than that. I’m still dropping, but I’m just not dropping like I was in the beginning, which was about 4 lbs. a week.”
Chaz Bono called off his engagement with fiancée, Jennifer Elia, after 12 years together in December 2011, which may not have helped any motivation to continue exercising after his celebrity ballroom dancing show participation.
