Nene Leakes is on a mission to lose 20 pounds, and she's already more than halfway towards meeting her goal. The Real Housewives of Atlanta boutique owner recently told Hollywood Life that she's shed 12 pounds, and she can credit that weight loss to a subtle tweak she's made to her diet.
Nene's husband Gregg is on the healthy-lifestyle kick, too. "We’ve really been trying to do better and eat better and eliminate the junk," the Atlanta 'Wife said. "I’m not doing anything crazy like doing the elliptical or riding the bike or running. I started being a pescatarian and he was plant-based, so I started there. It did help me and I felt different. I lost a couple of pounds. I’m not a big eater. But what I started to do, was just have small portions. I feel like I eat about four times a day – four, sometimes five – just nibbling on stuff, and I feel really satisfied."
Nene also shared the tip she uses to beat cravings. "I love to snack on stuff because I like chips,” she said. “So If I’d want it so bad, I could eat a little bit and then I’d throw it in the trash can. I always say to myself, ‘I’m not going through the trash can to get it out and eat it,’ so I’d bite it and then I’d throw it in the trash. So I could just satisfy myself a little bit."
And as for the results of smaller portions and the other diet tweaks? Well, just check out her recent pics:
Lookin' good, Nene!
