Keto Lean BHB With all the various diet and Weight Loss informational products advertised, it really is hard to know which one to chose. Personally, I don't think Star went the gastric bypass route. So just how did Star Jones lose her weight? I believe she did it very simply - through diet and exercise. It's not impossible to lose massive amounts of weight in a short period of time. I did. I was 213 pounds over 10 years ago. I went from a size 22 to a size 2 in six months. Let's translate that into numbers: I went from 213 pounds to 120 pounds in 6 months and I did it through healthy eating, exercise, and discipline - Just like Star Jones did.
