Charlotte Dawson started to lose weight after a health scare
Charlotte Dawson has successfully improved her health and shed four stone (56 pounds) in the process. The reality star was warned that if she didn’t make significant lifestyle changes, she would “die like her dad,” comedian Les Dawson, who passed away from a heart attack.
After displaying her rolls of belly fat and gushing about her love of chips and gravy, Charlotte garnered more fans. However, her carefree attitude cost her more than just a few extra clothing sizes. The doctor warned her that if she didn’t follow her diet and exercise routine, she would develop type II diabetes.
In fact, the reality star has already battled gestational diabetes, which affects one in every twenty pregnant women. The situation fueled her determination to make the necessary changes. In an interview with Fabulous, she discussed her journey to a healthy lifestyle.
“When I had Noah, I was so excited to eat bad food again and went back to having Nutella for breakfast, a chippy for lunch, and Chinese for dinner,” Charlotte said and added, “I’d get extra, extra-large portions of fish and chips with two portions of gravy, mushy peas and a sausage on the side.”
The reality star thought it was not normal, but she was breastfeeding and needed food. If she were hungover, she’d have three takeaways in a day, such as McDonald’s for breakfast, KFC for lunch, and chips for dinner. Everything changed when the doctor advised her to care more for her health.
“But in June, I started to feel a bit dizzy, so I went to the doctor, and when I was given the diabetes warning, I burst out crying,” she shared.
Charlotte Dawson began prioritizing her health more
Charlotte tried going to the gym, but she found the activity tedious and time-consuming—especially given that she was also a mother to Noah, who was 11 months old at the time. She said she didn’t have time to go on the cross-trainer for two hours.
Instead, Charlotte consulted with fitness instructor Emma Teitelbaum, who provided her with various workout programs through Zoom. She could work the routines around Noah’s nap time because they were only 15 minutes long. She also changed her diet with the help of nutritionist Jo Travers.
“She sorted my diet with foods that don’t spike my blood sugars. I’ve still been eating meals I love, like spaghetti Bolognese, but the portion sizes are a lot smaller so I can stay within 1,500 calories,” the reality star further explained.
The lifestyle changes were successful, and she soon settled into a routine while still enjoying the occasional treat. She added that the exercise fits into her lifestyle. And while the food she consumes has changed, she loves every bit of it.
“I’ve been given the all-clear by the doctors now, which is amazing.”
The actress is now looking to help people lose weight by starting her own online exercise program, Chazza’s Belleh Blaster. She clarified that this has nothing to do with money or the number of plans she sells. She established this to spread awareness about diabetes.
