Celebrity chef and entrepreneur, Buddy Valastro, is known professionally as the Cake Boss. He recently shared the secret of his successful weight loss on social media.


Valastro addressed questions he received about his incredible weight loss on Instagram. He told followers he had used the Optavia program to achieve his personal goals.

It wasn't a paid post advertising a particular product, and he warned followers that 'every body is different' and those interested in following his example should consult their doctor before joining any program.

In an exclusive interview with People, Valastro explained that his brother suggested the Optavia program and so far he has been pleased with the results. To learn more, follow our official Twitter page, at AmoMama USA.


By eating six small meals a day, the Cake Boss has already lost more than 35-lb.

“I just woke up one morning and looked at myself and was like, ‘Come on, you’ve gotta stop eating.’ [...] I wasn’t moving the same and was feeling kind of sluggish.”

His advice to viewers who have difficulty losing weight: "You just have to find what works for you and try to stick to it."

The Optavia program might not benefit every person to the same extent, but Valastro says not to give up hope because there are "a million ways to lose weight."


He also says that having the right motivation is essential. Valastro didn't join the program to look good, and there weren't any health scares to make him change his eating habits.

He just wanted to feel better – looking good is a pleasant bonus! It's an incredible feeling to know that his clothes now fit perfectly.

According to Metro, the Optavia diet is similar to Medifast, and there are three diet plans to choose from, depending on what you aim to achieve.

The costs range from $350 to $450 per month and include access to a coach who will help you achieve the desired results.
