Scheana Shay is the first to admit it: there's no magic bullet when it comes to getting in shape. The Vanderpump Rules star has slimmed down considerably, losing 25 pounds with the help with diet and exercise. And, yes, that's all she used, even though she is a face of weight-loss supplement Hydroxycut. Let us—or, better yet, Scheana—explain.
The workout buff recently appeared in a video on Wetpaint to clear up exactly how she shed those pounds. (Watch the whole thing here.) Scheana explained that she lost weight using the "natural, right way to do it: diet and exercise. No pills, no gimmicks, no anything. I got on a meal plan; I worked out with a personal trainer, six days a week, for several months." And she has the photos to prove it: from the looks of her Instagram snaps, Scheana knows her way around a kettlebell.
Hydroxycut contacted her after she had lost weight, and Scheana agreed to work with the brand under one condition: that she was allowed to be honest about how she achieved her current shape. "I'm not a liar," she told Wetpaint. "But, it is a product that keeps me very energized."
And if you look back at the first time Scheana posted about the supplements (above), you'll notice that she did indeed leave this disclaimer: "I did not take this to shed the initial fat." Instead, she uses the product as a substitute for coffee, and before workouts. Alas, the search for a magical weight-loss solution persists. But in the meantime, see you at the gym?
