Before Chrissy Metz weighed loss started streaming online, she enjoyed being fat as a teenager in Gainesville, Florida, where she lived with her parents, stepfather and five of her younger siblings. She didn’t put on weight until high school, when she and her friends were introduced to the Atkins diet. At first, it seemed like a good idea. It gave her a chance to eat what she liked and lose weight – something that hadn’t been easy for her to do as a child.
Like many women before and since, Metz wasn’t thrilled with the results of this diet plan. So she kept looking for ways to shed her extra weight, and she finally found it by working with an online weight loss program. Before long, she was shedding pounds and staying fit as an actress. But things took a turn for the worse. According to her public agent, the Atkins diet caused some serious complications with her physical health.
Recently, in an interview with In Touch Mag, Chrissy Metz discussed the role that diet has played in her struggles to stay in shape as an actress. According to her, while she’s lost some weight on the Atkins plan, other programs such as the Zone diet have caused her more health problems than she was used to dealing with as an actress. And now that she’s finally gotten out of contract, will she be changing her diet once again?
