Jodie Prenger showed off her singing abilities when she won the chance to play Nancy in a West End production of Oliver! on the TV show, I’d Do Anything. She has since appeared in shows such as Spamalot and Shirley Valentine as well as making a guest appearance in Waterloo Road. Tonight she’s a contestant on hit BBC show, Pointless Celebrities. Jodie previously took part in weight loss reality show The Biggest Loser which saw her shed an incredible 8st 7lb in just six months. What did she do to slim down?
I lost eight-and-a-half-stone in six months by eating three meals a day
When taking part in the show, she shrunk from 18st 2lb to a much healthier 9st 9lb and a size 10.
Although she has not kept all the weight off, Jodie picked up some healthy habits which have kept her trim.
Jodie was initially put through an intense fitness routine where she carefully monitored her diet and exercised for up to three hours a day.
The singer admitted she has gained around three stone back but she has accepted the routine was not sustainable.
Jodie said: “I’ve never ever been thin but, for most of my life, it’s been one of the things that I wished for.
“It was only after doing the show that I realised that I was never ever going to be able to keep that amount of weight off and have a life.”
She managed to find a balance which helped her keep a healthy lifestyle without being too restricted.
“It’s true that I lost eight-and-a-half-stone in six months by eating three meals a day and exercising more than three hours a day. There was no magic pill,” the actress added.
“I went from not being able to run a mile to jogging 12 miles a day and I proved to myself that it can be done.
“But I found it hard to keep weight off, and it’s never helped that I am partial to a cheeseboard and a bottle of Prosecco.
“The main thing now is that I do enjoy myself and refuse to beat myself up about my weight.”
Another famous face who has opened up about weight loss is the Great British Bake Off host, Sandi Toksvig.
The dieter originally slimmed down by following the low carb Louise Parker plan and cutting sugar from her diet.
Tom Kerridge followed the dopamine diet plan which he said helped him lose an astounding 12 stone.
When following the plan, dieters can tuck into foods including meats, eggs, dairy, nuts, fruits and vegetables.
