TYRA BANKS – DIET & EXERCISE
It’s perfectly reasonable to expect a former supermodel to stay in shape and fit all the time. Tyra Banks is also an advocate for body positivity as she made an appearance on the cover of Sports Illustrated saying that body shamer should “kiss my fat a–.” Even now that she recently lost a lot of weight, she continues her advocacy on body positivity.
She doesn’t view her weight loss as a way of betraying the body positivity movement. Another reason for her weight loss is her recent ankle injury, which prompted her to lose excess weight to help her injury heal. She may credit her nutritionist for keeping a close eye on her food choice, but she says that there’s one food that she occasionally treats herself to. This comfort food is ice cream in which Tyra indulges herself with a degree of moderation.
Deborah was a poster child for food addiction. She was already a U.S. size 14 at the young age of 14. Voigt also associates her food addiction with her mother and blames her childhood for it. She calls their mother-daughter bonding time “eating time,” which caused her to gain weight severely. Some of their habits were driving to the carhop and binging hot dogs to a certain degree.
Even fires root beer floats made the list, and she recalls that they’d stop at Dairy Queen on the way home. By the time they got home, her mom would also make popcorn drenched in butter as they binged Carson for the whole night. Despite developing habits, we’re glad that Deborah Voigt was able to figure out those negative habits and shed all of her excess weight. It is also an inspiration that she remains happy despite the public’s criticism of her weight loss.

Without a doubt, ditching sugar must be effective in shedding excess weight. Getting sugar off the menu should also help Shepherd’s Type 2 diabetes.
She undoubtedly looks fit and healthy at 51 and is constantly hinting on her Instagram about her weight loss progress. Sherri also mentioned that, above all else, her inspiration and motivation to lose weight and stay healthy was her son, Jeffrey. She surely won’t find herself eating anything she isn’t supposed to as her son wants her to stay by Jeffrey’s side to “protect” him and be his bodyguard.

Furthermore, Tyler isn’t the only one that is currently going meat-free in the Perry household. His son, Aman, is also on a meat-free diet and is also doing fantastic.
