Raven-Symoné Says This Exact Diet Helped Her Lose 30 Pounds

The star credits one particular way of eating with transforming her shape and her health.

Raven-Symoné has recently shed a staggering 30 pounds, and now, she's sharing her secrets to weight loss success with the world.

In a new interview with Good Morning America, Raven-Symoné reveals that it's her eating habits alone that have helped her transform.

"I do very minimal exercise," the star admits.

However, she has made some big changes when it comes to her diet. "I am low-carb as much as I can be," she says.

In addition to slashing her carbohydrate intake, the actor says that intermittent fasting has become an essential part of her routine.

"I am an avid faster. I make sure that I have a minimum 14-hour fast between dinner and breakfast," she explains.

At the time of the interview, the star was taking part in a three-day fast, revealing that "a lot of water," electrolyte supplementation, and bone broth were key to making her fasting period bearable. "I have a goal in mind, so that's what keeps me sustained," says the former Cheetah Girls star.

While Raven-Symoné had previously lost 70 pounds in 2011, she says that the emotional ramifications of the transformation made her weight loss unsustainable.

"The way people were treating me when I was bigger was emotionally damaging," she says.

"Every time I've lost weight in the past, it was about size," she explains. However, this time, the star says, "I'm not over here trying to be a little twig."

Instead, her new goal is a long-term strategy she can stick to. "I want to make sure that my body is healthy and prepared to deal with old age," she explains.
