Melissa McCarthy Diet

I was watching The 2016 People’s Choice Awards and when Melissa McCarthy came on stage I was flabbergasted at the amount of weight she’s lost. The 45 year old film and television star is not only really funny, she has the great physical comedic ability, like a female Chris Farley, but as anyone who’s been a larger size knows, being physical isn’t always easy.

When I saw her metamorphosis, I decided to investigate.

Her diet secret?

Melissa says she stopped stressing over her weight and over-analyzing.

Mike & Molly star and mother of two has been on a high protein, low carb diet. Her meal plans contain lean protein and vegetables at every meal. She has cut our sugar and processed foods and has lost an amazing 50 plus pounds over the last year. The reason for the changes -she realized she wasn’t being as healthy as she could be and wants to set a good example for her kids. She also wants to be around to become a grandmother too someday.

It seems Melissa is as business savvy as she is sensible and funny.

In August 2015 Melissa launched her own clothing line Melissa McCarthy Seven7. “It’s been a dream of mine since I was a little girl to have my own clothing line.” says Melissa. The actress often graces the red carpet in her own designs and wears her casual line as well. “I went 15 years without owning a pair of jeans because I couldn’t find the right fit, so, I am very picky about fabric and the one thing that I love is most of the pieces, even the dresses and blouses have pockets.” The 80 pieces will be tailored for all women in sizes from 4 to 28 and will be carried at Macy’s, Nordstrom, and Lane Bryant as well as the Home Shopping Network. The prices will be from $59 to $159.
