Jane McDonald is a familiar face on British TV screens, having hosted a variety of documentaries in recent months. The 58-year-old has a fantastic figure which she maintains by eating a healthy diet and doing regular exercise. How did she lose weight in the first place?
After starting her career as a cruise ship performer, Jane rocketed to fame when she first appeared on BBC One’s docusoap The Cruise.
The cruise industry can be gruelling, and Jane noticed she had gradually piled on the pounds.
Unhappy with her body, Jane decided to embark on an impressive weight loss journey in 2015.
The singer lost a whopping four stone and dropped to a tiny size eight.
Jane lost around 9lbs – or more than half a stone – in just a few weeks.
The 58-year-old said she lost weight “because of a change in my mindset”.
“I used to live to eat, but now I eat to live,” she added.
Jane continued to follow a sugar-free diet after the show ended and, consequently, lost an impressive four stone.
To avoid her weight creeping back, Jane makes sure to “cut down” on food when on board a cruise ship.
She explained: “If I have a breakfast, I don’t have a lunch. If I have a lunch, I don’t eat breakfast.”
Jane went on to say she “eats a lot of salads” and she has also cut out “white carbs, like white flour or white pasta” from her diet.
She doesn’t “eat crisps” and likes to start the day “with a green smoothie”.
