Marissa Jaret Winokur looked breath-taking as she attended the Hollywood premiere of the Disney film "Wreck-It Ralph" after losing 60 pounds. Talking about her weight lose journey that she took up in January, the actress revealed she had to work out like crazy as she has a tendency of putting on weight soon.
"I started working out like a mad woman and eating healthy," Winokur told People earlier this year. "Right before Thanksgiving , I was like, 'Oh, no, I'm starting to gain weight.' I can gain 20 pounds in a heartbeat."
With a strict workout regime, the actress lost 60 pounds in 10 months. She also revealed that she had no qualms with her size 14 but had to lose weight because of some health issues she was facing. "When I was a size 14, I was super happy. I felt confident in my body. The doctor was saying I'm not healthy, so I needed to change my way of life," she said in an interview.
Although Winokur has shredded most of her extra pounds she thinks she's still considered "chubby" in Hollywood: "I definitely have moments where I'll go to an audition or a meeting and girls are just so much skinnier. I'm still in Hollywood. I still will be considered a chubby actress."
Losing weight has not been easy for the actress and she talks about how much hard work she's had to put in. "It's super hard. I work out two times a day...I'm eating protein and vegetables...I've done it all. I've done every single, solitary diet," she said. She adds along with nutritional food it is very important to keep a tab on the portion you consume.
"If you say to me, 'You can have as much broccoli as you want,' I will binge on broccoli, but that's not right either" she said. "Everything has to be in moderation or else your body gets used to [big plates]...Portion sizes are really important."
Winokur says that losing weight is not an obsession for her but a necessity and calls her weight loss a "wake-up call".
"I'm definitely not the person that's like, 'I'm going to lose weight to fit in a dress' or 'I need to lose weight for a boyfriend or a job.' I've had a great career. I'm happily married. I have a beautiful son. I've never felt like my weight defines me," she told "The Insider."© 2013 Fashion & Style.com All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
