There’s an old saying in show biz that warns “the camera adds 10 pounds.” In an effort to lose those 10 pounds — and a lot more—celebs have chosen to go to expensive spas, have weight-loss surgery or follow the tenets of popular weight loss plans as paid brand ambassadors. Some celebs have even lost 100 pounds and continue to maintain their weight loss. Other celebs famously endorsed diet plans and were paid to lose the weight — but gained it all back.
Jessica has gone from a low of about 110 pounds to 210 pounds at her heaviest, the singer has yo-yo’d up and down since the birth of her two kids in 2012 and 2013. With the help of a $4 million deal with Weight Watchers, she lost about 50 pounds but has continued to fluctuate between fit and not-so-fit.
Seinfeld star and Broadway actor Jason Alexander was one of the few male celebs who took on the role of brand ambassador, this time for Jenny Craig. The Craig program is similar to the Weight Watcher’s program of reduced calories and offers frozen meals for convenience and variety. The Seinfeld star lost 30 pounds in 28 weeks back in 2010, even going so far to show off his body in a “mankini” commercial.
