Lisa Riley Reveals Secrets Of Weight Loss To Disprove Rumours Of Gastric Band

The 'Strictly Come Dancing' star has dramatically changed shape.

Lisa Riley has revealed that she shed her first stone in a week, by restricting herself to a diet of 400 calories a day.

The former 'Emmerdale' star has lost a dramatic seven stone, leading to rumours of surgery, but now her trainer has explained Lisa's transformation was all natural.

Lisa - who previously wowed viewers of 'Strictly Come Dancing' - kick-started the regime by staying at a detox centre, which included four hours of exercise a day, and being in bed by 9pm every night.

The actress has gone from a size 30 to a size 16 in the space of 10 months, after embracing a healthier lifestyle.

The 39-year-old recently shared a slimline snap of her enjoying a break in Singapore, which she captioned: “Singapore......Flying high on life!!!”

Lisa, who appeared on the 2012 series of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, decided to make changes to her lifestyle after her father had a cancer scare and was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.

She told Bella magazine: “Losing my mum then seeing my dad wired up and nearly losing him and becoming an orphan was a shock to my system.

“I don’t want to be a statistic. I just want my health to carry on, to live my life to the fullest.”

She had previously denied rumours, both that she had taken diet pills, and that a gastric band was behind her her new look, saying: “If one more person asks me about a gastric band then I swear I will be tempted to cut myself open and show people there’s nothing there."

She added: “I feel like I’ve given my body a gastric band without having the op.”

Lisa has previously spoken out about the body shaming that happens in the media and on social platforms.

“Body-shaming is completely and utterly wrong,” she said. “I want to be judged because I am a good actress or a good presenter – that is all.

“Whether my hair is pink, red, green or black, that is down to me. No matter what I look like I shouldn’t be judged, it is nobody else’s business.”
