NeNe Leakes: How She Shed 20 Pounds

The newlywed reveals she doesn't count calories or carbs.


Through the years we've witnessed NeNe Leakes transition from hot housewife to Hollywood hottie. This summer, while preparing for her second walk down the aisle with Gregg Leakes, NeNe continued her transformation: she says she dropped 20 pounds before she got remarried to Gregg Leakes this summer. Now she's revealing how.

The I Dream of NeNe star recently told Life & Style magazine that the extent of her weight loss took her by surprise.

"I only wanted to lose 5 or 10 pounds," she says in the interview, which was excerpted on Radar Online.

"I feel so much lighter, like I’m floating!" saysNeNe, who attributes her slim-down to heathy habits, not any crazy diet plans.

"I tried to give up soda and not eat late at night. But I don’t avoid eating. I’m not trying to starve myself. I love food," NeNe says. Echoing what so many fitness experts have tried to drill into our heads, NeNe's approach is about lifestyle changes rather than just calorie counts.

"I don’t count calories or carbs," she said. "Counting doesn’t get me anywhere. I do portion control when trying to lose weight."

There's no secret here, simply "Eat less, move more," says NeNe.

What do you think about NeNe's attitude towards healthy eating and weight loss? Tell us in the comments.
