"Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro Credits His Major Weight Loss to This Diet

Buddy Valastro was so enthusiastic, he had to clarify he wasn't being paid.

Cake Boss star Buddy Valastro has opened locations of his Carlo's Bake Shop all over the country to serve decadent cakes, cookies, and other sweets, but he's also looking like he's been majorly slimming down these days. How is that possible? He took to Instagram to share the diet plan that works for him, which is called Optavia. 

"A lot of people have been asking me how I’ve slimmed down lately so I just wanted to share that I’ve used the Optavia program. Im not being paid to say this and it should be noted that I think every body is different and you should do whatever suits you but this is what I’m doing and I’m very happy with the results so far!"

Optavia sells lean and green meals like beef stew, chili lime chicken, and turkey meatball marinara, plus snacks such as sharp cheddar and sour cream popcorn, apple cinnamon crisps, and barbecue chips. But it does not offer anything even close to resembling cake. (Sorry.)
