Sometimes all it takes is good old-fashioned diet and exercise.
Just because celebrities always seem to look flawless in magazine spreads and walking down red carpets, doesn’t mean they don’t have to work for it. Stripped of their personal trainers, professional stylists, and designer wardrobes they face the same body issues as us — insecurities, fat days, and the inability to find anything to wear despite having a closet full of clothing.

Fed up with being overweight, many celebrities have made major overhauls to their fitness habits to revamp their image. Scroll down to see how these 10 celebs lost the weight and gained a new sense of body confidence.
