How Did Drew Barrymore Lose The Extra Pounds?
Drew revealed in an interview how much she used to weigh and how much she weighs now. She said, “I was 144lbs (10st 4lbs) and now I’m 124lbs (8st 12lbs). I did it for the filming of a Netflix show.” She followed Kimberly Snyder’s methods but she said that she added “some protein like fish and chicken since she’s (Kimberly) all vegetarian or vegan.” The Santa Clarita Diet actress also said, “I’ve been very disciplined and all I did was cry and dream about pizza. I still am dreaming and crying about pizza.” But she is loving the way she looks and feels. On the Today Show she said, “I thought, ‘I could come alive with Sheila,’ and it was a really great goal line for me, because I think as much as the weight loss, everything’s just really subtle. It was a really great goal line for me, because the weight loss was very subtle, it’s attitudinal, it’s empowerment, it’s confidence,” she continued. “It’s all of these things that [my character] lost in her life and I felt I had lost in my life, and it was such a blessing to come alive with her and it really was so positive for me.” She also added, “It gave me this intense responsibility that I said I want to fulfill to be Sheila and then there was like no excuses.”
It is clear that Drew invested her energy for the show and she did a great job! It helped her stay focused during a tough time of her life and helped her emerge out more confident and self-loving than ever.
To conclude, Drew Barrymore stunned us all and in a good way. But we love curves as well, so, if you are comfortable in your body, then you do not have to follow anyone else’s diet. But if you are in a place where you know your weight is causing/potentially cause a lot of health problems, then talk to your doctor and get a customized diet plan. Also, working out is very important for losing weight and improving your mental health. Yes, you will crave for foods you love and it’s OK to have a cheat meal once a week. So, get back up on your weight loss track and feel confident and fulfilled like Drew Barrymore! Take care.
