The New Year is approaching, and with that comes a lot of resolutions. One of the most common New Year’s Resolutions you see have to do with diet and fitness. If that is the case for you, be sure to read this post where I go into detail on what kinds of resolutions to avoid if you want to set yourself up for success.
It’s not just us common folk who make goals for their health and wellness in the new year, as many celebrities have ambitions like this as well. One such celeb is Drew Barrymore, who has struggled with fluctuating weight in her adult life and resolved to get more fit this past year.
In a recent Instagram post, Barrymore shared some before and after photos of her body transformation. What was the secret in her diet that led to her success? Continue reading below!
Drew Barrymore’s Weight Loss
It should come as no surprise when you hear that the secret ingredient to her success isn’t such a secret. She said in an interview that she ate a hefty amount of salad to fuel her weight loss. No big secret there, but it just reaffirms much of what we know about eating healthy.
In her Instagram post, Barrymore states:
Here is me in a before pose and then 25 pounds later in the same place. You can tell my face is so much thinner! This takes me so much work. Diet and exercise and fighting like a lion for it!”
She reconfirms what I’ve been saying all along. If you want to get healthy, it all comes down to diet and exercise. Make smart choices in the kitchen and make sure to stay active. Consume fewer calories than you burn off through activity and there is no other result than losing weight. If you need an extra boost to speed up your progress, add in some diet pills like these to ramp up your metabolism and if you stay disciplined you can crush your goals.
According to a friend who spoke to Hollywood Life, as quoted in this article on bravotv.com, Barrymore started eating clean by cutting all processed foods from her diet. She upped her dose of salads and fresh vegetables and replaced unhealthy snacking with more nutritious options like nuts. It is mentioned that she cut carbs from her meals, so it sounds like a little bit of ketosis may be a reason for her success as well. She also increased her protein intake, focusing on lean proteins like chicken and fish, with a steak on occasion.

Solution: with the right people (@marniealton) we can make our goals a reality... Here is me in a before pose and then 25 pounds later in the same place. You can tell my face is so much thinner! This takes me so much work. Diet and exercise and fighting like a lion for it! Damn you genetics! And yet thank you for all the good stuff.

I have to tip my hat to Ms. Barrymore. She nailed it – both in how she looks after all that hard work and the route she took to get there. Eating right and putting in the work in the gym, there is no substitute! You hear it preached all the time, but it can’t be stressed enough! There is no magic pill that will get you there. You need to be watching what you eat, and staying active to burn off those excess calories. Follow a similar plan in the New Year and these results can be yours as well!
