Bono admitted before he did “Dancing with the Stars” he was in denial about being overweight. “I was kind of in denial about how heavy I was, but was ready to do something about it. I was thinking that it was holding me back from opportunities in my life, and I was worried about my health.”
Chaz explained he has lost 85 pounds, saying the show “The Doctors” helped him get started. “They hooked me up with a nutritionist, a doctor and exercise plan.”
He gave up all grains, sugar and will only have cake on his birthday. “I have cut out 99% of grains from my diet, 99% of dairy from my diet. I pretty much eat vegetables, meat, fruit, nuts.”
Chaz also revealed that after he lost the weight, he had to have the excess skin surgically removed. “That was a tough process. It’s not fun, but worth it because I look better now.”
The whole process has been a positive one. “I feel really good. I feel healthier. I feel lighter. I feel more confident, and I feel really happy.”
