Candice Bergen Is Fat and Happy: Avoids Weight Loss Programs and Diets

Candice Bergen, a former model, said she’s fat and happy and lives to eat.

Candice Bergen is fat and happy because she doesn’t center her life around restrictive diets or weight loss regimens.

“Let me just come right out and say it: I am fat,” Bergen unapologetically proclaims in new memoir, A Fine Romance.

Candice, 68, has gained 30 pounds during the past 15 years and doesn’t give a flying fig that she’s overweight.

“I live to eat,” Bergen wrote in her book. “None of this ‘eat to live’ stuff for me. I am a champion eater. No carb is safe. No fat, either.”

Candice is happy to eat with abandon and feels sorry for her thin friends, some of whom resort to bulimia to lose weight or stay skinny.

“At a recent dinner party I shared bread and olive oil followed by chocolate ice cream with my husband,” wrote Bergen. “A woman near me looked at me, appalled, and I thought, ‘I don’t care.’

Candice continued: “Dieting is out of my purview … [My skinny friends] maintain their weight by routinely vomiting after major meals consisting of a slice of steak or a filet of fish. I am incapable of this.”

Bergen’s stance on dieting and exercise is a stark contrast to Jane Fonda, who at 77 is still remarkably fit, thanks to a low-carb diet and regular exercise.

Jane Fonda’s anti-aging beauty and fitness secrets are a healthy diet and daily workouts.

Jane has released 23 best-selling fitness DVDs since 1982. Fonda revealed her workout secrets in her memoir,  Prime Time: Love, Health, Sex, Fitness, Friendship, Spirit.

Bergen, a former model, starred on the hit sitcom, Murphy Brown, from 1988 to 1998. While she was celebrated for her striking blonde beauty for much of her career, Candice isn’t scared of aging.

“People complain about parts for women, people complain about getting old,” Bergen told New York magazine in 2012. “It’s a privilege to get old. The reality is that I don’t look like I used to look. I just don’t care enough, and in a way it’s saved me.”

    Although I can’t argue with the fact that Candice loves to eat, I still believe that eating healthy is important for health disease purposes. Dieting doesn’t mean eliminating all the bad foods but eating more healthy foods in portions. Candice will always be a great women no matter what to say the least.

    I unfortunately had to lose weight because I was diagnosed type 2 diabetic.I am now what would be considered alittle under weight by most.6ft 135lb but I am comfortable at this weight.I eat all the time now,just eat more nutrients dense foods and I certainly don’t vomit or starve myself to maintain this weight.I enjoy treats,but that’s the key word they are “treats,not everyday or every week for that matter.Everything in moderation!I also excersize more on days that i intend to indulge.I was a carb addict,but when I cut them down,my cravings subsided alot.At first I thought I’d die of hunger,but now I can easily resist.I will always be type 2 diabetic but I am managing it now diet and exercise.
