Gallery of stars who lost weight, featuring their before and after photos. These celebrities dropped pounds from diet, exercise, or some type of medical surgery. Weight loss is such a big deal in Hollywood. Famous people who have had dramatic weight loss includes film and TV actors, singers and musicians, and even media personalities. Some celeb weight transformations, like Oprah Winfrey's, make headlines.
One of the most popular ways celebrities battle obesity is by dieting. There have been countless types of diet fads throughout history, but the most important thing to remember when picking a good diet is simply by eating nutritious food. Staying healthy by consuming plenty of fruits, vegetables and grains doesn't cost much and prevents hunger. It is also important to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, especially when exercising.
Physical activity also leads to weight loss, and Hollywood celebs often try different exercises and training regimes to slim down. From running, to swimming, to yoga, there are a number of ways to sweat and burn calories. Once considered extreme, more and more stars like Al Roker have undergone medical procedures such as gastric bypass surgery and the lap band. Even though weight loss surgeries have become safer in recent years, there are still a number of risks involved, so it's best to consult with a doctor. The battle of the bulge isn't hard with a healthy diet and lots of exercise. There are also several weight loss apps available to help you meet your weight loss goals.
