Katie Maloney is opening up about how she dropped 25 pounds.
After debuting a stunning photo on Instagram weeks ago, which was taken amid the virtual reunion taping for season eight, the Vanderpump Rules star revealed what she’s been eating to lose weight. She also offered an update on her plans to start a family with husband Tom Schwartz.
During a May 16 interview, Katie, 33, revealed that after embarking on a series of short-lived diets, she enlisted the help of a nutritionist.
“I think dieting is not sustainable and it’s very short term and just sets you up for failure. So, now I just feel like I just know how to like eat for my body and metabolism,” she explained to Hollywood Life. “[And] my clothes are fitting again nicely, so that’s cool.”
Katie was able to lose weight without having to deprive herself. As for what she’s been eating, she always has some type of egg dish for breakfast with “healthy fats” and “some greens.” Then, after breakfast, she enjoys tea or coffee with some healthy snacks, such as fruits, nuts, or cheese.
“I’m not a huge snacker, so it’s usually just going and popping a few things in my mouth just to fuel my body. Because that was the hardest part of it all, just training myself to eat more frequently than I normally would,” Katie revealed, adding that she likes to eat giant protein salads for lunch.
“Having those vegetables that really fill you up, those slow carbs that your body takes a long time to break down. That’s nice eating more of those. And then at dinner, we’ll make chicken with green beans or broccoli, or something just nice and easy on the side,” she stated.
As she and Tom prepare to celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary in August, the Pump Rules couple has confirmed that they could be expanding their family this year.
“I’m ready,” Tom revealed to Hollywood Life. “We’re ready. Little Baby Bubba!”
“Yeah!” Katie agreed.
According to Katie, her desire to get healthy and lose weight was prompted by her plans to become a mom.
“It’s important,” Katie said. “Everything has to do with that because I mean, you want to be able to get your body in a good, healthy place and make sure that it’s working.”
