Deen Family: How We Lost 178 Lbs. Together!
Slimming Down Is the New Family Tradition! Weight-Loss Tricks from Paula Deen, Her Husband, Michael, and Sons Jamie and Bobby
The Smaller Partions Diet
The 5'6" family matriarch, 66, dropped 10 more pounds since last summer by continuing to follow her new mantra. "It's all about moderation," she says. "I eat reasonable portions now. Tonight I treated myself to just half a piece of bread." She also gained peace of mind. "I'm sorry it took so long to finally admit that there was a flaw in my body," she says. "It's hard to believe, but diabetes has been a blessing." Best Tip Have a cheat day. "You can't deprive yourself all the time," she says.
The Doctor-Supervised Diet
Groover, 57, "used to get birthday cakes when it was nobody's birthday," says the 5'10" harbor pilot who wed Paula in '04. He began a program last June called OurSkinny: four protein shakes a day plus a healthy dinner. "It's tough to stay on a regimented diet, but I'm committed," he says. "When I used to diet, I'd eat a donut and think I screwed up, so I'd eat a dozen. Now I've learned if you fall off the wagon, you just jump back on." Best Tip Bring low-cal salad dressing to restaurants. "Most have so much fat you're not eating healthy," he says.
The Busy Dad Diet
Becoming a father was the catalyst for Jamie, 45. "Unlike Bobby, I don't have time to go to the gym," he says, "so I have to watch what I consume more." The 6'3" star of the Food Network's Home for Dinner with Jamie Deen stopped eating after 6 p.m. and cut down on carbs-"anything I used to put on bread, I now put on lettuce," he says. Best Tip Weigh yourself daily for motivation. "If I'm up a few pounds, I drink more water and have a salad for lunch," he says.
The Beat Your Genes Diet
"I'm Paula Deen's kid," says the 5'9" Cooking Channel star who grew up often wearing "jeans from the husky department." Twelve years ago he stopped "eating whatever was in front of me-and started taking care of myself." He lost 33 lbs. eating veggies and fish, and still hits the gym daily-a 3½ mile run and 60-90 minutes of weight lifting. "Eighty percent of the time I'm careful about what I eat," says Deen, 42. Best Tip Be creative. "I make parsnip fries instead of French fries."
