Drew Barrymore Reveals How She Lost Weight
The actress said that it was about time she started making her health a priority
Drew Barrymore, famous for her roles in 50 First Dates and Charlie's Angels has never shied away from speaking about her weight. And when it came to shedding some of it, she was never afraid of admitting that she struggled with it. In an interview with E! News, the actress spoke about her partnership with Emsculpt - a procedure to build more muscle and sculpt the body.
Drew revealed that her diet and the body-contouring treatment proved to be a great "game-changer" for her, especially after having given birth to two daughters, Olive and Frankie Barrymore Kopelman. She said, "My problem was that no matter how hard I dieted or exercised, after having two kids - and my genetic predisposition - I was never losing weight. I was always getting injured, so this, for me, was a game-changer." She added, "I've been able to build my core with Emsculpt, and it's completely changing my life. I can work out more and that just makes me feel mentally better and physically better."
Speaking of how Emsculp works, Drew explained that it's a non-invasive treatment that builds muscle. She added that there is a "magnetic field" like machine that feels like you're "doing 20,000 crunches in 30 minutes." Isn't that how fast all of us wish to go with our crunches, right?
Apart from exercises, Drew feels that eating healthy is of equal importance. She continued, "You do have to maintain a workout routine, it's not a magic wand. I wish I could eat pasta for three meals a day and wash it down with wine but that is not the case."
The 44-year-old actress confessed to giving more priority to her work and her children. However, she is now ready to focus on her health and make it a priority too. But for Drew, a healthy lifestyle is more about finding the right balance between looking good and feeling good. She shared, "I'm just trying to have a life that makes sense. I don't want to feel an aesthetic, I want to feel good and confident."
And while she is currently single and ready to date with her sculpted body and new found confidence, she despises dating apps. She shared, "I tried a dating app for like five minutes, and I hated it so much. I can't even express on public television the feelings that it gave me, but they weren't positive, and I didn't like it at all." Drew concluded that she would much rather choose to meet someone through the traditional method than opting for any of the dating apps.
