She Gained Weight Due to Endometriosis

Savannah, who was thin for most of her life, gained weight in 2019 due to endometriosis. "I was on a medication and the highest dose possible for six months, and I gained about 30 pounds within the six months," she told Life & Style in July 2020. While she would "work out like crazy" and "try to eat right" she simply couldn't drop the weight. "I mean, it was hard," she said. "There was nothing I could do to control it."


She Does the South Beach Diet

Savannah ended up getting back into shape with the help of the South Beach diet. She explained to Fox News that the low-carb diet taught her how to eat right. "It's about progress, not perfection, South Beach Diet has given me control. It's taught me moderation, portion sizes and that a keto-friendly lifestyle works. I am so proud of how far I've come since this time last year and I feel better than ever," she said. She also revealed to Us some of her favorite South Beach friendly meals. "We make lasagna but with zucchini instead of noodles. We're taking some of her recipes and making them healthier. We did a kale salad, which is my go-to and everyone in the family loves it, except Todd. He's a lost cause. But Grayson loves it. So it's just fun coming up with recipes that are healthier, but the kids love too because I want to start teaching them that it is important to start living healthy younger," she said. As for snacks? "I mean, chips and guac are my go-to, but I've learned to substitute the chips for cucumbers. It's not the same but it works. And like I said it also follows along with the South Beach Diet because it doesn't have carbs in it."


Her Weight Fluctuates

Savannah embraces her curves. "My weight fluctuates and that's just called being a woman and loving food," she told Fox News. "I believe that being healthy starts from the inside. Eating right helps my moods tremendously. If I'm feeding my body great food, then my moods and life will thrive. I want to be healthy for my family and my future children."


She Exercises

Savannah explained to Fox News that the South Beach Diet helped her lose weight, but exercising resulted in gaining some of it back. "I lost about 20 pounds and then gained about 10 pounds back due to muscle because I've been lifting weights," she explained. She also likes boxing. 


"Loving Yourself Is the Key to Being Fit"

Savannah believes that self-love goes a long way when it comes to staying in shape. "For a long time, I compared myself to so many other people because I felt like I just didn't measure up," she told Fox News. "I wasn't good enough. I kept hearing 'you're too big' or 'you're too skinny.' I have realized that if I am happy and I love me, then no one else's opinion matters. Loving yourself is the key to being fit, in my opinion."


She Cheats

Savannah eats healthy most of the time, but allows herself some wiggle room. "I still have cheat days, cheat weekends and cheat meals, but I jump back on to the South Beach diet," she told Us. 


She Doesn't Allow Her Weight to Define Who She Is

"I feel like you have to remind yourself that it's not going to be easy, but it's going to be worth it in the end," she told Fox News. "Five pounds heavier or five pounds less, it doesn't define who you are. That's been the hardest thing that I've had to come to terms with because being in the public eye there is a certain pressure to look a certain way, act a certain way and look like the models that you see on the runway, or on the cover of magazines," she added. "Like I said, I'm still working on it every day, but I look at it and I'm like, you know what? I don't have to be that."
