Find Out Why DeLaria Lost All that Weight

The star of the Orange is the New Black show, Lea DeLaria, revealed the true story behind her dropping 50 pounds. She said to the media that she was diagnosed with diabetes and that she had to give up sugar and starchy food like rice, potatoes and pasta. She has been given medication which, if taken properly, makes people lose a lot of weights. DeLaria has been watching her diet closely and was very disciplined when it came to taking medication.

Even though diagnosed with a disease, Lea says she feels lighter having lost all that weight – she went from 225 pounds to 175 pounds. She gave a lot of clothes away and has been shopping for new clothes ever since. Lea said her energy is up, and that she is happy for having the money to shop.

When it came to diagnosing diabetes, DeLaria did not know she had it until last year. While she was weighing 225 pounds, she was running a lot and partying all night long. She began to feel tired all the time and could not pinpoint the reason. Besides being diagnosed with diabetes, DeLaria also has high blood pressure, but she proudly said her blood pressure is at the level of a teenager now after she has started taking care of herself.

When it came to shooting the show, the writers have formed the plot around her weight loss and DeLaria was proud to announce it worked out very well. We are eager to see the new season!
