Showbiz Spy reports: The TV host — who recently revealed she underwent a double mastectomy after discovering she carries a gene that increases her chances of developing breast cancer — says she has lost weight by sticking to a protein-rich diet since September but still wants to lose more.
“I’ve lost 28 pounds on the Atkins diet. I want to lose another seven and I’ll do that over time,” she said.
“I’ve struggled with my weight for my entire life. I’ve been fat and I’ve been thin. As you know, I got the lap-band and lost a ton of weight, but it made me so sick. That’s why I had to remove it. But when I removed it, I gained about 45 pounds, And as my 60th birthday was approaching, I didn’t want to be overweight. I wanted to be healthy and keep with my family. I want to be healthy and enjoy life.
“That’s when Atkins approached me about possibly doing this and I was like, ‘Where do I sign?’ It has been a life changing experience.
“It’s really not a diet. It’s a lifestyle change.
“[Son] Jack and [husband] Ozzy are doing the diet along with me and my one assistant.
“They love it because it is so convenient. It’s so yummy. It’s all about proteins and vegetables. You can go out to eat and you can have scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, or a salad. On the diet, it’s very broad what you can eat.”
