Raven-Symoné is opening up about her lifestyle change that resulted in her 40-lb. weight loss. According to the singer and actress, it was all thanks to having a great support system and her conscious effort to “kick sugar.”
On Wednesday, the singer and actress spoke candidly about her health journey with the ladies of The View.
"What made me want to change was her," she revealed while pointing to her wife Miranda Pearman-Maday. "I want to be here for her as long as I can. I found out some numbers at the doctor that were not pleasant for someone in my age bracket—or any age bracket, to be honest with you. And with her help, and guidance, and love, and fantastic cooking skills—which everyone here knows—she helped me kick sugar.”
She added, “I say kick sugar because it is an addictive drug.”
Symoné went on to explain that Pearman-Maday played an active role in helping her eat healthier foods, even encouraging her to try Keto-friendly cookies.
“I have whole food,” she shared before adding, “And I actually talk to someone here at The View every day about fasting because I'm also an intermittent faster and an extended faster as well."
Hoping to inspire others on their health journey, Symoné shared her impressive weight loss numbers. "When I ended this show [in 2016] and I started Raven's Home, I was 210 lbs. I am now 170," she shared with a feeling of accomplishment.
The multi-talented star added that she reached the milestone with "no exercise."
