With Christmas fast approaching Bridesmaids actress Melissa McCarthy has recently revealed her 50 pound weight loss promoting her Melissa McCarthy Seven7 clothing line.
In the festive themed photos the funny-woman is seen smiling broadly while decorating a Christmas tree and a variety of other poses.
So how did Melissa McCarthy achieve such incredible weight loss results? Read on to discover her secret.
What caused Melissa McCarthy’s decision to lose weight?
According to a source close to the actress, Melissa made the decision to lose a little weight as she wanted to become healthier for her husband Ben Falcone, as well as her daughters Vivian and Georgette.
The source stated:
“Melissa realised she wasn’t being as healthy as she could be.”
“She wants to set a good example for her kids and she wants to be around to become a grandmother too.”
How did Melissa McCarthy lose weight?
According to sources she has been able to lose the weight after changing her diet to a low-carb, high-protein diet similar to that of other celebrities like Megan Fox and Tim McGraw.
There are also reports that she has started working out more often, with Pilates and walking her preferred form of exercise.
The biggest weight loss secret of Melissa McCarthy was to simply stop stressing about her weight loss.
“I truly stopped worrying about it. I stopped over-analysing, over-thinking, overdoing anything.”
“I kinda went back to when I was pregnant and I just stopped constantly being worried about it, and I think there’s something to kinda loosening up and not being so nervous and rigid about it that, bizarrely, has worked. I could’ve figured that out before 44, but whatever.”
This is a good bit of advice that you should probably heed. As stress can have a negative impact on your weight and can certainly derail any weight loss attempt if you are not careful.
The reason for this is that stress can cause your body to overproduce cortisol, which then leads to food cravings that can be difficult to resist.
I think we can all agree that Melissa McCarthy has done an incredible job and looks incredible.
Hopefully she will be able to keep the weight off long-term, I am sure we would all love her to remain healthy and happy.
