Ali Fedotowsky discovered that dating many men under the watchful gaze of cameras can be stressful during this season of The Bachelorette. The 25-year-old has endured an emotional roller coaster, and it looks like it led to stress eating. “I was always hungry! I didn’t think much of it, but everyone noticed,” said Ali in OK! “I just wanted to eat more.” Keeping healthy eating habits can be difficult while traveling. Ali gained 15 pounds while jumping from city to city across Europe.
“I also wasn’t as active as I usually am at home.” As soon as filming ended, she knew she wanted to get back to a healthier lifestyle–and drop 10 pounds. To reach her weight-loss goal, Ali ate healthfully six days a week, but then gave her diet a break for one day. “I am good during the week, and one day I pig out,” she says. “I love pizza from Domino’s or Pizza Hut and a Diet Coke.”
She started to making her own meals and eating out less. “I go to the grocery store and I’ll buy the ready-made chicken breasts from the deli counter,” said Ali. “I buy four or five at a time, and I’ll have them with a salad. I also love egg-white omelets because I can actually cook the egg whites myself.” When it comes to snacking, she sticks to healthy nosh like air-popped popcorn.
No fitness regime is complete without physical activity. To get her heart rate up, Ali likes to run and practice kickboxing. “I love kick-boxing. You can think of your ex-boyfriends while your doing it, like, ‘I HATE YOU!’” Looks like it paid off!
