Chaz Bono has dropped 60 pounds and he is thrilled! The former ‘Dancing with the Stars’ contestant has changed the way he eats and it has paid off.
Bono told PEOPLE magazine that he is “still slowly losing weight.” Chaz explained, “I’ve just changed the way I eat. Diets don’t work. You just have to change what you eat, and I have.”
The 44-year-old son of Cher and the late Sunny Bono has gone through a big transformation over the last several years. The former Chastity Bono underwent a female to male gender transition that was documented in the 2011 television film ‘Becoming Chaz.’
Chaz appeared on ‘The Doctors’ in November to discuss his weight loss struggles that began in his 20′s. At 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighting 250 pounds, the show experts suggested that he lose 50-80 pounds.
He recently tweeted, “What’s worked for me is, no sugar, no grains, no dairy except goat cheese, no white starches, portion control, and high intensity workouts.”
A tabloid website recently suggested that he and his mother are feuding. In response he posted this photo with Cher and tweeted, “I just found out, online, that my mom and I aren’t speaking. Can you tell me when Radar Online became a credible, quotable news source.”
