Carnie Wilson Shows Off 40 Pound Weight Loss in Before and After Photos

"This is 40 pounds down."

Carnie Wilson is showing off her weight loss. In a new social media post the former Wilson Phillips singer looks incredibly svelte. "Another before and 'during' … my health journey! This is 40 pounds down. I feel really different," she captioned the set of photos. How is she getting in shape? Here is everything you need to know about her weight loss journey. 


She Is Dieting: No Gluten, Sugar, or Butter

"Knowing that I did this PURELY through diet – no gluten or sugar, no butter and keeping fats down too," Wilson continues. "Lately I have indulged in cheese and nuts which have more fat. If I chose not to eat corn tortillas, nuts and cheese – there's no way I could keep this up."


She Plans on "Exercising More"


Carnie revealed that up until now she hasn't been working out very much. "I need to start exercising more to make the scale start to move again, but I'm so proud and pumped," she writes in the caption.  


It's a "Miracle

"I have totally adjusted my eating habits to satisfy my cravings but in a realistic way. And it's a miracle," she continues. "Hope this inspires someone."


Subhead Goes Right Here

In February, Carnie elaborated on why she decided to embark on a weight loss journey. "My body started rejecting gluten and sugar … and with my blood sugars at a six … cholesterol at 225 I was not heading in a good direction,"she wrote on Instagram. "I had a pain in my tummy and had an ultrasound to be sure I had no gallstones. Luckily, I did not. I was too scared to give up the food that I thought was bringing me comfort."


Her Weight Loss Journey Is "An Act of Self Love"

"I know there are many ways to lose weight quicker, but it comes down to calories in versus calories expended," she continued. "For me, this was an act of self love … knowing which food made me feel like shit and also knowing I can't eat it. The result has been weight loss, more energy, feeling more positive, hopeful, in control and confident. I'm not counting calories or going too cray cray with the scale."


Her Goal Is 155 Pounds


She added that she planned to "reach a physical goal of 155 pounds." "It's hard sometimes because Lord knows I wanna cram it in my mouth!!! I know how I will feel if I do though — and that's what stops me," she said. "Thank you for such loving and encouraging words the last five months! It means so much to me!!!!"
