Chaz Bono loses 65 pounds


Chaz Bono, 44, has jumped on the celebrity weight loss bandwagon. The former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant has dropped 65 pounds since November.  With the help of a nutritionist, trainers, the Freshology program and classes such as kickboxing and jujitsu, Bono has kept the weight off and said, “Physically, my body feels just so much better, I’m in a lot less discomfort when I exercise and am doing physical stuff. All of my numbers are all normal now, which is great -– my blood pressure, my cholesterol. I just have a lot more confidence, and that feels really cool. I really like what I see in the mirror … I’m feeling really good.”

Bono’s weight once topped over 250 pounds. He blames his past lifestyle for the weight, saying it “was the lasting effect of long-term drug use and withdrawal as well as a hormonal imbalance. After I stopped using drugs, drinking and smoking, food became the thing of pleasure … ”

He is proud to say he is on a healthy path today and has no plans of turning back.

“I have no cravings at all anymore,” he revealed. “I really feel very satisfied and comfortable with the way I eat now, which is amazing and for me, kind of a miracle. I never thought I’d be that kind of a person … To me, it was never really about a number … It was just about getting healthy and feeling and looking better. So I’m just kind of letting my body dictate. I’ve been eating the same way now for months and months and that hasn’t changed. I’m going to have to eat this way for the rest of my life.”
