42-year-old chef Buddy Valastro looks slim and fit; thanks to Optavia’s strict diet program.


When Buddy Valastro of Cake Boss fame recently posted a photo with his wife on social media, the star got noticed for his transformed physique.

In the click, Valastro looked fitter and slimmer than his previous self, looking dapper in a formal outfit topped with a stylish grey blazer.

In the caption of the post, Valastro revealed the secret to his drastic transformation. He wrote that he had been approached by a lot of people with the same question, and he attributed his weight loss to the Optavia program.

Optavia program is a diet and lifestyle regimen that involves working with a coach to build healthier habits, eating six meals a day with portion control and using Optavia’s nutritional products.

Valastro clarified that he was not advertising the program for a monetary gain. The chef also added that there is no one solution for all and that people should pick their own suitable weight loss regime.

However, he emphasized that the Optavia program was his chosen method and that he was thrilled about the results it had produced.


In another post, a visibly slim Valastro was seen spending time with his wife at the beach.

When compared to one of his older photos taken on Mother’s day, the change in his figure is strikingly evident.


Valastro had also previously spoken about his food habits, sharing that as an Italian, he had a different equation with food. The star revealed that he was accustomed to having a refrigerator of food in the garage.

While the results of the Optavia program are visible on Valastro, professional nutritionists have a different take on the diet.

Expert dietician Jessica Cording told Yahoo Lifestyle that although the diet may be helpful for people who wish to lose weight quickly, they may gain back the weight after going off the diet.
