Full Answer

Melissa Peterman, also known as Barbra Jean from her role on the CW sitcom “Reba,” received a lot of attention from 2006 to 2007 for losing 60 pounds after the birth of her child. She has said in interviews that she lost the weight naturally and not through surgery or with diet pills. Peterman credits her success to taking her exercise regimen seriously, getting assistance from her personal trainer, and modifying and monitoring her food intake. She states her diet is heavy in high fiber foods and proteins and light on carbohydrates, sugars and fats. Peterman also credits her baby as the motivation for her weight loss, according to Melissa-Peterman.com, “Frankly, he’s a large child. I need to be able to lift him.”

It is important to note that Peterman’s success, like all weight loss programs, is not typical. Her body type, daily activities and requirements, and access to healthy foods and gym equipment all contribute to her weight loss.

Before beginning any weight loss program, it is important to talk with a medical professional.
