Okkkkkkkkkkkaaaaaaay!!!! Where the hell have I been?
I must’ve been under a rock because I had I had NO IDEA that Gabourey Sidibe had lost so much weight. The other night while chatting with my sister, she showed me this pic of the Precious actress and I damn near hit the floor. At a glance, I had no idea that was her. Now I’m too serious about getting my weight down because I’m on a mission to lose about half my current body weight and this chick did it in 16 weeks. Here’s how:
According to Idol Magazine:
Unlike Jennifer Hudson, Weight Watchers® did not work for Sidibe. “I kept borrowing Weight Watchers® points from friends and family and by the forth week I was over my head in debt,” said Sidibe. “My friends said they did not want to see me until I had their points. It was hard because they don’t sell points, you have to earn them.”
With his time alone came an awakening for Sidibe. “I would watch a lot of television and see beautiful women with amazing bodies all over the world and think, they’ve got to be doing something right. I spoke to my nutritionist, Hakif Marqus, and we figured it out after watching The Miss Universe pageant,” she explained. “What all these beautiful women had in common was that they were all from different continents.”
Marqus and Sidibe created the “Seven Continents Diet,” which features a special meal plan that includes a daily prix-fixe menu featuring glamorous fruits and cuisine from all seven continents. Each meal is chemically balanced and designed to drop the weight without sacrificing flavor.
Gabourey combined her new regime with exercise to help keep the weight off. “I would go horseback riding five times a week. After a two and a half hour ride, I would eat three Australian Kiwis and a handful of mixed African nuts,” said Gabourey. “Horseback riding is great because it works every muscle in your body, especially your thighs,” added Marqus. “It’s good for the horse, too.”
“I hope this inspires women everywhere to join me on this journey to a healthier, happier life because life is precious, and so are we.” The Seven Continents weight loss program is set to launch this summer with plans starting from $9 a meal.
I don’t know what the hell the Seven C diet is but I’m seriously trying to find out because if this chick lost that much weight in 16 weeks, all I need about is a good 12 or 13 on this diet and I’ll be at my goal in no time.
Big congrats to her, I know she feels a lot better. It’s amazing what losing all that weight can do. I can’t wait til mine falls all the way off. I’m gone be a new woman for real, for real.
