UPDATE 12/02/10: Carnie Wilson was fired as spokesperson for The Fresh Diet due to weight gain and promoting her own cheesecake business.
Carnie Wilson, daughter of beloved Beach Boys singer Brian Wilson, is a mom of two daughters. In the spotlight from a young age, her weight has been a much commented upon subject. The star of the GSN show Carnie Wilson: Unstapled, Wilson had gastric bypass in the 1990s when she was over 300 pounds. Her weight fluctuated since, hindered by a 70-pound weight gain in her first pregnancy and 60 pounds in her second. Describing herself as a life-long sugar addict, she says that she never learned to eat correctly and used her pregnancies as a convenient excuse to eat the foods she wanted.
“I’m not an exercise lover and I’m a food lover, and my body doesn’t have a great metabolism. You put all that together and there’s my challenge,” she told Celebrity Baby Scoop in a recent interview. She confessed that having children derailed her healthy diet habits. In a recent appearance on the Dr. Oz Show, she was weighed on television. Dr. Oz diagnosed her as morbidly obese and prescribed a weight loss plan.
The mom of two, like moms everywhere, worries when her daughter chooses sugary foods, and tries to head her in the right direction. “When I see Lola asking for sugar, it’s like pushing a panic button. I go, ‘Oh no, oh no, she’s going to be fat!’ I have to calm down and say, there’s a way to do this. There’s a way to show her that she can have some sugar, but it has to be limited,” Wilson said in her Celebrity Baby Scoop interview. She’s especially happy to have partnered with Fresh Diet.
The woman who launched a bakery business is especially critical of her food choices, and she’s found nothing lacking with Fresh Diet, calling it the ultimate in organic, healthy foods.
This busy mom finds that balance is tricky for her, with the demands of her career, children and marriage. Trying to get the food segment under control is difficult, but with the help that she has, Carnie Wilson should be able to solve this dilemma and find a healthy, manageable weight.
