Alyssa Milano is at her “happy weight” following her 46-pound weight loss on a low carb diet.
Milano, who gained 55 pounds during each of her two pregnancies, recently lost over 46 pounds and feels fantastic.
“I gained 55 pounds with both of them,” Alyssa told The Insider. “I’m back to my happy weight.
“It has been something that I haven’t put too much stress on because I wanted to be kind to myself and obviously my priority was to be a mom.”
Alyssa’s weight loss secret was the low carb, high-fat Atkins diet and Pilates workouts, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
“I started just cutting out sugar and then cutting out carbs,” said Milano.
Low carb, high-fat diets such as the Atkins and ketogenic plans promote rapid weight loss by forcing the body to burn fat for fuel, said obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.
Dr. David Ludwig, author of the bestseller Always Hungry? Conquer Cravings, Retrain Your Fat Cells, agrees. Ludwig lost 20 pounds in 3 months without feeling hungry or counting calories with a LCHF diet.
Low carb, high-fat diets keep blood sugar stable, suppress appetite, and enhance mood, said Dr. Ludwig, a physician and Harvard nutrition professor.
Other celebrities who lost weight on the Atkins diet include Kim Kardashian, who lost 50 pounds just 4 months after giving birth to her second child.
Similarly, Kendra Wilkinson lost 55 pounds just 5 months after her having second baby on Atkins, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
Alyssa Milano also works out regularly, combining cardio exercise and Pilates. “I do spinning at least 4 times a week,” she said. “I do a Zumba class once a week and Pilates 3 times a week.”
