Kelly Osbourne, 35, featured on the “Hollywood Raw Podcast” where she spoke to co-hosts, Dax Holt and Adam Glyn. She opened up to the hosts about how she had lost a lot of weight.

The star confessed to the co-hosts that she had gastric sleeve surgery almost two years ago. She explained to Holt and Glyn that having the process was something she would “never ever, ever lie” about.

BEING PROUD OF HER SURGERY

The Emmy Award winner shared how “proud of it” she was and didn’t care what anyone else had to say about it. Osbourne described the procedure as the best thing she’s ever done.

She explained how gastric sleeve surgery was a procedure that changed the shape of your stomach. During the podcast, she also revealed how the surgery cut out a hormone from one's system to prevent addiction issues like cravings.

PREVENTING EMOTIONAL EATING

The actress shared how it forced you not to eat emotionally, which is an issue she struggled with. Osbourne also revealed how she didn’t crave alcohol anymore.

The surgery is different from a gastric bypass because after having it, the star still had to work very hard to keep the weight off. The Londoner shared how one had to exercise and eat right otherwise the weight would just come back.
