Discover Chaz Bono weight loss secret.
Since he appeared on season 13 of “Dancing With the Stars,” fans have seen Chaz Bono less – and he plans to stay that way.
Bono has lost almost 30 kilos and continues to lose, he told People. The weight reduction has been the result of better eating habits and exercise, he said.
“Diets don’t work,” he told the magazine. “You just have to change what you eat, and I have.”
This includes adding more meat, fruits and vegetables, said son of megastar Cher, as well as cutting back on grains and starches.
In 2005, Bono appeared on VH1’s “Celebrity Fit Club 3” before the gender reassignment surgery that transformed him from Chastity Bono to Chaz.
EW reported that in November Bono appeared on “The Doctors” and was advised by co-host Dr. Travis Stork on how to lose weight.
“Because I’m a transsexual I was always completely disconnected from my body,” Bono said during the show. “I really lived only in my head and tried to ignore it all from the neck down.”
While attending the GLAAD Media Awards last weekend, Bono said that he is still dancing and that part of his exercise routine now includes martial arts training as well.
