Lorraine Bracco Shed 35 Pounds

Lorraine Bracco appears to be the epitome of a smooth and sensual woman with beautiful curves that accentuate her frame. This new look was not always there though. She weighed over 180 pounds a few months ago. 

But what changed her outlook on the weight loss game was when she had to minister to her aging mother and father in their last days on earth. Lorraine faced the issue of counting out the scores of pills her senescent parents took for a range of illnesses. 

She saw their suffering and then had a foresight into her own fate if she didn’t change her ways. So she made the final choice and after consulting a nutritionist made certain transformations in her daily diet. 

"We were sitting there, dividing these medications, who gets what when. It was insane. I watched and realized, 'I don't want to go like that,'" Lorraine Bracco told ABC News . "I said, 'I want to be the best I could be.' I want to live every day the best I can be."

Refined grains, dairy products and the biggest culprit of them all, sugar, were all cut out of the daily regimen. The effect was magical according to Bracco. She soon lost the taste for all junk food which was wreaking havoc on her figure.       

Lorraine was a big fan of Twizzlers. Her sweet tooth was the reason behind this disastrous choice in food. But when she lost all that poundage, the end result was that she couldn’t even stand the taste much less eat a single Twizzler. She simply spat it out since the cloying sugary taste was anathema to her taste buds which had completely adapted to the healthier natural food. 

"I started off very slow. My feeling is also, you sign up to go to the gym and you go to two classes and then you can't walk. It's just not the way to do it," she said. "Now, I go to Pilates class three times a week. I love that there are women who are in their 80s in my class and there were kids who are 23."

Now, Bracco eats fruit, gluten-free cookies and Kind bars which all fuel her quest for the ideal body. She literally glows with healthy vibes and feels good about herself. 

Lorraine plans to write a book on the subject where she will offer many diet tips on weight loss. "To the Fullest" is the title of her book that will be published by Rodale Books in 2015.

"The book will have recipes, a liver cleanse and ways to manage [one's weight]," she said. "It's a body-mind-spirit thing."

She currently keeps in view the issue of portion size and attends Pilates classes. Lorraine claims that finally she does not feel all those aches and pains upon getting up in the morning.
