Kelly Osbourne’s massive weight loss has made headlines again after the star recently spoke out about getting gastric sleeve surgery.

Osbourne has lost 85lb (around six stone) in recent years, with surgery, a vegan diet, workouts, and ditching alcohol all playing a role, according to The Telegraph.

The star, known for her work as a T.V presenter as well as being part of the famous Osbourne family, revealed the staggering scale of her weight loss on social media earlier this year.

‘I lost 85lb’

Osbourne shared a snap on Instagram, prompting Mamamai – mother of influencer Jeannie Mai – to comment: “Oh my gosh, you lost a lot of weight.”

Replying to the comment, Osbourne wrote: “That’s right mamma Mai I lost 85lbs since I last saw you. Can you believe it? Kaakakaka.”

Gastric sleeve

Shortly after opening up the scale of her weight loss, Osbourne appeared on the Hollywood Raw podcast and revealed how she got gastric sleeve surgery as part of the process. The operation involves stapling off part of the stomach.

“I want to be very clear about this kind of surgery I had. I didn’t have a gastric bypass. The kind of surgery I had…if you don’t work out and you don’t eat right, you gain weight,” she said.

“All it does is move you in the right direction. What people don’t realize is, it cuts out this hormone that if you have addiction issues, it stops your craving and it makes you not emotionally eat which is a huge problem for me.”

According to Osbourne, she didn’t view a weight loss diet as a short term fix. She told HuffPost: “Once I learned how to work out right and eat right, it’s one of those things that you just have to commit to a life change rather than being on a diet.”

Vegan diet

Osbourne’s vegan diet also played a significant role in her weight loss, reports say.

Earlier this year the Daily Mirror reported that the star has credited her plant-based diet with helping her lose weight and improve her relationship with food.

Osbourne once said she put pounds on after overcoming her drug addiction, saying: “I replaced the drugs with food and just got fatter and fatter. I’m an emotional eater. When I get upset, my diet goes out the window.”
