Chaz Bono got motivated and went "Dancing With the Stars" a couple years ago, and now the reality star is taking on what he eats and showing great results -- he's lost 60 pounds.
"I've just changed the way I eat," Bono told People. "Diets don't work. You just have to change what you eat, and I have." It was an assertion he also tweeted about on April 8, listing some of the food and exercise that's working for him.
In November, Bono detailed how he was setting out to lose weight with an appearance on "The Doctors." At 5 feet, 5 inches and 250 pounds, Bono, 44, said he had struggled with weight since his mid-20s. He was advised by experts on the show to lose 50 to 80 pounds.
Bono (formerly Chastity) documented his female-to-male gender transition in the 2011 film "Becoming Chaz."
