(PEOPLE) – Just a couple years ago, one of the biggest names in comedy, Melissa McCarthy pulled off one of the most amazing transformations in Hollywood history. She dropped an astonishing 80 pounds of weight and set a precedent for the most dramatic weight loss journeys any celebrity in Hollywood has ever undergone.
Was it for a movie role? Did she get paid to do this? Questions about her weight loss began to circulate and over time fans began to form their own rumors about how and why she did it. Now for the first time ever, Melissa McCarthy herself is giving us the scoop.
On a recent segment of the Jimmy Fallon show, the iconic comedian took the audience on her weight loss journey beginning with the “scary news” that started it all. Here’s a snippet of her conservation with Jimmy about her weight loss secret.
Continue reading about how Melissa McCarthy lost 80 pounds of weight.
Jimmy: Welcome to the show! And uh I have to say, you look GREAT! Whatever you’re taking,
whoever you’re seeing – I want some! Haha
Melissa: Thanks! I feel great, honestly. And before I say anything – I have to say that I couldn’t have done this without the love and support of my husband Ben, he’s been such a huge point of motivation for me.
Jimmy: So we’re dying to know – how’d you do it? Exercise? Diet? A magic wish from a genie in a bottle?
Melissa: Hahah definitely no diet or exercise, but a magic wish from a genie is pretty close. You ever hear of Keto? For 2 months, I was livin’ the Keto life.
Jimmy: Keto? You mean Ketosis? I think I saw something on Dr. Oz about it. Thought it a long-term diet thing though.
Melissa: No it’s not long-term, unless you consider 1 month long term. So basically during my annual check-up, my doctor said that I was at risk for diabetes due to my weight. That’s when reality hit me. I asked my friends about diets and exercises, tried them, and gave up. They just all took too long.
One day I reached out to my nutritionist who recommended this “hot new” weight loss treatment called Turmeric. A 1-a-day pill that basically “tricks” your body into burning fat instead of essential proteins for energy, which makes you lose all that unnecessary fat and keep your muscle.
Jimmy: TRICK your body? That sounds a little sketch, is it natural? What’s the catch?
Melissa: Oh yeah it’s 100% natural. Ketosis is actually a naturally occurring process in your body. But it happens after you stop eating carbs and fats for 2 weeks. This pill basically lets you start it instantly without giving up carbs or fats. And there’s no catch. Once you’ve lost the weight you want, you just stop taking the pill, drink lots of water for 2 days, then you’re good!
Jimmy: Wow, how did Ben react to all this?
Melissa: He was extremely supportive really. When he heard about the diabetes he said it was like a rock dropped in his gut – he was worried for me. But nonetheless he was supportive.
And the whole thing was going so well, I’d lost so much weight that at one point he said “It’s like I’m losing my wife haha”. He didn’t mean it of course.
Jimmy: That is… unbelievable! Can you tell us the name of the Keto brand you used?
Melissa: Yeah, it’s Turmeric. I caught them during a seasonal promo too, they do it once a year, you can get a whole month supply for free. If you don’t see results in the first 2 weeks you get to keep the rest! I basically kept it for the month and only paid the $5 or whatever for shipping. It was a steal haha.
Jimmy: There you have it guys. Turmeric is your next bet for that summer body you want. We’ll send out a special link to our readers about the free supply after this segment.
What Is Keto?
Keto, also known as Ketosis, is a process in which your body naturally enters a state where it will burn fat instead of muscle. As your body focuses on burning fat for energy instead of muscle proteins, you begin to feel healthier energy because fat energy is much more nutrient dense. A popular benefit to this is that you can eat whatever you like without worrying about calories, fat, or carbs since your body will continue to utilize fat for energy – which is comprised of carbs and sugars.
Hundreds of celebrity have benefitted from the use of this amazing miracle pill – Kelly Osbourne, Rachael Ray and Jennifer Lopez are all reported to have lost a significant amount of body fat using the same diet. Keto is the hottest thing right now, and not without reason either. This clinically proven formula can melt off 8 lbs of fat every 7 days and flush out all the junk from your body. And best of all, it’s free right now, just cover shipping costs! We know what you’re thinking though, and we also had our doubts.
We began seeing the hashtag #Keto all over social media and had to see what it was all about. Being close friends with our very own Paulina, Melissa was more than eager to share with us. We visited the Keto website and saw that they were offering free bottles of the all natural supplement for a limited time so of course we took advantage of it!
Since this was the first time we’re working so closely with it, we were intrigued. After clearing it with our legal team, our lead editor pushed for a case study. Our quirky new reporter Paulina Silver was more than happy to be our guinea-pig. She was assigned the task of trying this celebrity diet and documenting all of it for the next 31 days.
We found testimonials from the above 2 women using Keto. All reported that it has helped accelerate their weight loss by at least 45%
Keto has been clinically proven to:
- Increase the speed of Metabolism by 70%
- Boost high levels of HCA adiposes production of leptins by 130%
- Cleans out stored fat cells and digestive system with antioxidants
- Boost energy Levels
For our case study, we ordered the product through the company’s free sample offer of Keto. Suppliers are still offering free monthly supply exclusively to our readers, just cover shipping costs. (See below for exclusive links)
Paulina’s Weight Loss Journey
It’s Day 7 of taking Keto. When I started I weighed 162 pounds. I’m at 155 after 7 days, but that’s most likely water weight that I lost, no actual fat burned. I feel so much more energetic. I usually crash around 3PM at work and feel lazy. That has completely disappeared at this point. So even if this experiment doesn’t work. I will definitely be using the cleanse again.
It’s Day 14, I got on the scale and weigh 145. 10 more pounds gone. I’ve lost over 17 pounds in 14 days so far, but again the first 10 pounds are usually water weight. I do feel less stress and I noticed I don’t twist and turn in bed anymore. I feel more energetic in the mornings as well.
Its Day 18 of the Keto diet. Before I even got on the scale I noticed my pants were looser than usual. The scale said 142. I haven’t weighed less than 145 ever since I got married. I’ve even got a couple compliments by co-workers and friends! At this point I know the diet works, but the 35 pound claims by people on amazon may be difficult to achieve. We’ll see in the next few weeks.
It’s Day 28 and I weigh 136. I definitely cut down on my sugar intake this week. There is still 4 more days, I’m so excited at this point. My husband is actually flirting with me again. We went out last night and for the first time in years, I’ve notice him getting irritated when other men look at me! The last time that happened was when we just got married!
It’s day 31, I officially weigh 134 pounds and I’ve lost over 28 pounds in 31 days. Words can’t explain how amazing I feel. It’s a lot easier to shop now a days. It doesn’t take me forever to find the perfect any more. No more asking “Do you have this in a bigger size?” It’s even helping my marriage, my husband and I started actually going out on the weekends like we did before we got married!
