Both cosmetic surgeries and fad dieting are things TV personality Sharon Osbourne has used to keep her looks young and fit.
Currently Sharon is on the Atkins Diet, having lost 28 pounds and hopes to lose another seven, she told US Weekly magazine:
‘In three months, I’ve lost 28 pounds on the Atkins diet. I want to lose another seven and I’ll do that over time.
‘I’ve struggled with my weight for my entire life. I’ve been fat and I’ve been thin.
‘As you know, I got the lap-band and lost a ton of weight, but it made me so sick.
‘That’s why I had to remove it. But when I removed it, I gained about 45 pounds,’ she explained of her 1999 lap-band surgery.
‘That’s when Atkins approached me about possibly doing this and I was like, “Where do I sign?’
‘It has been a life changing experience,’ Sharon said of the low-carb diet.
‘It’s really not a diet. It’s a lifestyle change.’
In support of the matriarch of the Osbourne family, both hubby Ozzy and son Jack are supporting Sharon by sticking to low-carb diet. She said:
‘Jack and Ozzy are doing the diet along with me and my one assistant.
‘They love it because it is so convenient. It’s so yummy. It’s all about proteins and vegetables.
‘You can go out to eat and you can have scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, or a salad. On the diet, it’s very broad what you can eat.’
One surgery Sharon underwent that wasn’t for cosmetic reasons, was a double mastectomy – which she did last year after finding out she had the breast cancer gene. Sharon wanted to play it on the safe side, and both her and her doctor thought it was the best thing to do, especially after battling colon cancer.
‘I’ve had cancer before, and I didn’t want to live under that cloud . . . the odds are not in my favour. I decided to take everything off, and had a double mastectomy.’
