While several celebrities commit to spending more time with their loved ones (albeit virtually/remotely), Emmy-winning-actress Morgan Fairchild has chosen to invest in her body. The actress is undergoing her new health journey with a keto diet.

Fairchild revealed in an exclusive interview that she started looking for efficient weight loss programs after observing that she had put on a few pounds. Morgan later related the unexpected weight gain to the mold situation in her home.

The actress recalls that she "blew up like a balloon" due to bronchial issues, but did not immediately realize the changes were a result of the black mold in her house.

Fairchild eventually Googled black mold and was astonished that it was responsible for her weight gain, although she still had no idea how to overcome it. She stated in the interview:

"I never had a weight problem because I'm not an eater, I'm not a food person … so even once I realized what it was, I still didn't know how to fix it."

A while later, Morgan says she finally got in front of the situation when she met a man who was indulging in the Ideal Protein package at the doctor's office. She then consulted a "mold specialist" for advice before joining the program, which led to her dramatic weight loss.

Morgan explains that the Ideal Protein meals come prepackaged, making them very convenient for the 70-year-old who admitted that she doesn't often cook, especially as she is home alone as a result of the lockdown. Fairchild said in the interview: "I have my fake oatmeal every morning and then salads. You know it's a very specific diet."

The Falcon Crest actress maintained that the diet is straightforward, but she had to follow it religiously, emphasizing the high level of discipline required for the program. She said, "If you cheat at all, you don't lose weight."

Keto diet is a low-carb, high-protein diet that causes a body to undergo ketosis, breaking down fat and protein and resulting in weight loss.

The actress is still committed to dropping a few more pounds while in quarantine, and she gets sufficient support from her longtime boyfriend, Mark Seiler.

Morgan reveals they've been in contact despite their separation (Seiler is currently in a nursing home) and feels content in the knowledge that they're taking excellent care of him.
