Jennie McAlpine, 36, has been part of the Coronation Street cast since 2001. While appearing on the show, she has been through a weight loss transformation.
“I don’t go in for all the diet plans and worrying yourself silly over how much you weigh,” she told the Mirror.
“Ice cream is bad, salad is good – it’s not rocket science.
“If you eat more of the good stuff and take more exercise then you’ll lose weight.”
When trying to lose a few pounds, most people know they should eat healthily and exercise regularly.
Experts at Healthline.com said: “The real key to safe and successful weight loss is to adopt a healthy lifestyle that suits your individual needs and that you can maintain for life.”
Jennie said she toned up by following a balanced lifestyle and by cutting back on unhealthy treats such as ice cream, which can promote weight loss.
The experts continued: “Cutting out foods high in added sugars is a great way to lose excess weight.”
While Jennie explained healthy eating is important to her, she is not restrictive with her diet plan.
By following a balanced lifestyle, the Coronation Street favourite said she won’t let what she eats affect her.
“It’s really not worth beating yourself up over it,” she continued.
“I know there’s pressure in this business, but I can honestly say I’ve never felt it myself.
“I’m not saying I let it wash over me because of course I’m aware of it, but I don’t let it bother me.
“I just think there are far more important things going on in the world.”
Before joining the Coronation Street cast, Jennie had a brief stint in Emmerdale.
In 2017, she came fourth while competing in ITV’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!.
