Look, I really love Kelly Osbourne, and it has a lot to do with wishing I could dye my hair grey. But when I heard her tip for women who want to lose weight, I kind of felt like it was ridiculous.
She told In Touch Magazine:
‘People think I lost weight and then got happy, but that’s not how it works. You have to get happy first. I made a life change, and the weight loss was an amazing perk.’
I mean, that sounds really, really zen, but, no. Or at least, I’m not inclined to believe this because I think the notion that “happy people are all skinny” is as ridiculous as “fat people are all jolly.” In reality, people of every size can be bitter, dried out, vengeful husks.
I don’t think Kelly Osbourne lost weight because she became happy. I think she lost weight by doing this:
Aside from her one cheat-day a week, where she indulges in pizza, Kelly stays pretty consistent with her diet. “For breakfast, I will eat either cereal or a little omelet thingy made with egg whites, mushrooms and spinach. Lunch is usually a salad or a turkey burger. And then for dinner, I’ll have brown rice with vegetables and some kind of meat.”
And I will say that if I had to live off of brown rice and vegetables 6 days a week I would be the opposite of happy.
