Through hard work in the gym (and perhaps the dance floor?), healthy eating, and a weight loss aid called Qsymia, the Dancing With The Stars Season 14 alum has lost over 70 pounds, and we’ve got the pictures to prove it.
The photo on the left is of Chaz in October 2009, whereas the one on the right shows Chaz in September 2013 in a similar — though significantly smaller-sized — outfit. Back in April, he told People that healthy eating was his big keys to success.
"I've just changed the way I eat," he explained. "Diets don't work. You just have to change what you eat, and I have."
That’s not the only thing he changed about his lifestyle. Back in July, Chaz’s endocrinologist appeared on the medical talk show The Doctors to talk about the role of the drug Qsymia in Chaz’s stunning weight loss.
“I was looking to balance the hormones and what would be easy for him [to maintain]. That’s why I suggested Qsymia. It’s a drug, newly approved by the FDA for the chronic maintenance of obesity,” she explained, adding, “It modifies his eating behavior in conjunction with exercise.”
Seems pretty effective to us. We knew Chaz had slimmed down, but until seeing the before-and-after we hadn’t truly realized how much!
