Celebrities makeovers are par for the course but it’s not everyday you see a star drop 70 pounds in between appearances. And we’re not just talking about losing the baby weight (though that’s just as impressive). Lately, the phenomenon of magically shrinking celebs has become more commonplace, with stars not only shedding pounds but nabbing a spokesperson deal with a weight loss company to match. Jennifer Hudson became the face of Weight Watchers when she shed 80 pounds and Khloe Kardashian attributes her 25-pound weight loss in part to Quick Trim.
But even when extreme weight loss doesn’t go hand-in-hand with a corporate deal, it’s still just as jaw-dropping when your favorite curvy celeb reveals a significantly slimmer bod. We may never know the truth about how these stars shed pounds (though we’re pretty sure trainers and chefs have something to do with it) but we can still use their “before” and “after” pictures for workout inspiration. Check out our list of 13 stars who had dramatic weight loss transformations, and meet us at the gym right after.
