Big Brother winner Josie Gibson, 27, has revealed her new slimmed-down figure in the new issues of Closer magazine.
The Reality TV star has always struggled with her weight, fluctuating between a size 12 to size 18 – but after some unflattering beach snaps taken in Ibiza emerged back in May, she decided to get fit,
“I’d gone out there to look at houses as I was thinking of investing in some property. The last thing I expected was to get photographed and, as far as I’m concerned, I look like a total beast. I was in denial about how big I’d got, but those pictures really brought it home. I couldn’t believe it when I weighed myself and realised I was 14st and a size 16.
“I’ve always been a yo-yo dieter, but when I saw those photos I was really horrified. I knew I had to tackle my weight again.”
So how did Josie do it? Good old fashioned healthy eating and following her golden rule: always eat breakfast,
“I’ve cut out dairy products and I eat much more healthily now. No junk, just loads of fish, avocado and salad – I know what I’m supposed to eat, but it’s not always easy. I stick to 1,400 calories a day and my golden rule is to always have breakfast. That’s where I’ve gone wrong in the past – I’d starve myself until late morning, then fill up on loads of junk food. I was also boozing too much and not watching my portion sizes.
I’m well aware my body’s not perfect,” she continues. “I don’t like my droopy small boobs. But being healthy is what’s most important.”
