Sharon Osbourne who is currently one of the co-host on The Talk and is now sixty, and went through a cancer scare is stating that the reality star had a big success with weight lost through the Atkins diet system; and she still wants to lose another seven pounds.
People reports: “I’ve lost 28 pounds on the Atkins diet,” Sharon, who signed up for the program in the beginning of September, told Us on Oct. 26 at an Atkins luncheon in NYC. “I want to lose another seven and I’ll do that over time.”
“I’ve struggled with my weight for my entire life. I’ve been fat and I’ve been thin. As you know, I got the lap-band and lost a ton of weight, but it made me so sick. That’s why I had to remove it. But when I removed it, I gained about 45 pounds,” she explained of her 1999 lap-band surgery. “And as my 60th birthday was approaching, I didn’t want to be overweight. I wanted to be healthy and keep with my family. I want to be healthy and enjoy life.”
“That’s when Atkins approached me about possibly doing this and I was like, ‘Where do I sign?’ It has been a life changing experience,” Sharon said of the low-carb diet. “It’s really not a diet. It’s a lifestyle change.”
“I’ve had cancer before, and I didn’t want to live under that cloud . . . The odds are not in my favor,” explained Sharon, who battled colon cancer a decade ago. “I decided to take everything off, and had a double mastectomy.”
