Cheers to Kirstie Alley?

Days 321 - 327

Remember when I voiced my doubts over diets and weight loss programs in this entry and then in this one?

Yesterday, the news broke that Kirstie Alley has recently lost 50 lbs. Congrats Ms. Alley, that is quite an accomplishment!


Didn’t you slim down before? How did you do that again?

Oh yeeeaaaaaah:

"Last year, Alley, 59, confessed that she had ballooned back up to 230 pounds — after initially losing 75-pounds via Jenny Craig and announcing it on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in 2006."

Ms. Alley, I know it is hard to lose weight and keep it off, but I also know the best results I have ever reached for weight loss was from exercise and eating healthier—more vegetables, no meat, less sugar and white flour, as well as reducing my processed food intake. I am not saying you have to drop meat from your diet but please, see a dietician or nutritionist, one that doesn’t work for or endorse a weight loss center because it seems those places didn’t work for you. I am not saying weight loss centers don’t work at all, but you can’t depend on one forever to keep the weight off. That comes from you and nobody else.

So how long until the “Organic Liaison" line of foods fails you as well and you gain some or all of that weight back?

Not trying to be mean, just playing devil’s advocate.

Once again, congrats on the weight loss, Ms. Alley.

Talk to you soon!

  1. I just found your blog and I am so impressed. We went veggitarian December of last year and it really has been awesome. We never really liked meat before but we cut it all out. I gained weight after having a baby and couldn't loose the weight. I finally decided we needed to chang our entire diet, so my husband and I along with our daugther went meatless and started eliminating processed foods from our diets.And since that time we started this I have lost every pound of pregnancy weight. It has taken time but at least I know it isn't coming back. So way to go on your meatless year. And way to go for loosing weight.

  2. No Esther, congrats to YOU for losing the weight and in a healthy way!
