Melissa McCarthy is earning raves for her 75-pound low-carb weight loss and for her stunning all-sizes clothing line, which she models on the red carpet.
Melissa proudly wears dresses from her Melissa McCarthy Seven7 apparel line, which ranges from size 4 to 28, and is affordably priced from $59 to $159 per piece.
While McCarthy is thrilled with her weight loss, she’s even happier to be able to champion plus-size women, who have been marginalized by the fashion industry, TheImproper reported.
“I feel like there’s a big thing missing where you can’t dress to your mood above a certain number,” said Melissa. “I’ve been every size under the rainbow. My sense of style never left me, but my options did.”
The Melissa McCarthy Seven7 collection has lots of cute, flattering style and is not just for plus size (or skinny) women, said McCarthy.
“There is just this weird thing about how we perceive [larger] women in this country,” she said. “I would love to be a part of breaking that down.”
Meanwhile, McCarthy looks and feels fantastic after losing 75 pounds with a low-carb diet and fat-blasting HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workouts, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
Low carb diets such as the ketogenic and Atkins diets promote rapid weight loss by inducing the body to burn fat for fuel, according to obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.
Obesity expert Dr. David Ludwig, agrees. “‘Eat less, exercise more’ doesn’t work,” said Ludwig, who has an MD and Ph.D. from Stanford University.
By reducing carbs and eating more healthy fats, you can accelerate weight loss and enjoy consistent energy throughout the day, said Dr. Ludwig, author of Always Hungry? Conquer Cravings, Retrain Your Fat Cells, and Lose Weight Permanently.
Ludwig, a physician and nutrition professor at Harvard, said the true cause of weight gain isn’t too many calories, but a diet that’s high in refined carbs and sugars. This is because our body stores fat when we experience insulin spikes, which are caused by eating too much sugar and processed grains like white bread, he said.
