Kelly Osbourne Lived the Vegan lifestyle to gain a figure!
“Over the past two years, I’ve lost over 63 pounds, but I’ve only lost the last 14 since I met [my boyfriend] Matthew,” Osbourne told the January/February 2013 issue of Cosmo UK. “That’s because he cooks for me. He’s a vegan chef, so he makes sure that I eat healthily.”
The 5-foot-2 Kelly, who says she once tipped the scales at over 160 pounds, says dating a fitness-minded vegan chef (Matthew Mosshart, 28) has helped her become the thinnest and healthiest she has ever been.
“I love Matthew and we love to work out together,” Osbourne gushes. “We motivate one another. I go on the treadmill every day for half an hour and do two hours of exercise if I have a special event.”‘
While some people turn to weight-loss surgery and other quick fixes to shed fat, Kelly insists the secret to true, lasting weight loss is a long-term commitment to diet and exercise. “There isn’t an easy fix,” says Osbourne, whose mum Sharon lost over 100 pounds in 1999 after getting lap-band surgery.
“I suppose you can get your fat sucked out, but then it’ll just come back, and when it returns you’ll have loads of cellulite. The best thing you can do is eat right. I don’t believe in diets; I believe in lifestyle changes, and that is something you have to commit to.” Kelly, who’s making the switch to a plant-based vegan diet, is happy being a size two, and has no desire to starve herself to a size zero. “I’m happy with how I look now,” says Osbourne. “As long as I’m healthy, do exercise and eat right, that’s the main thing. I’m slim now, but I don’t want to be anorexic.”
