It’s her whom we owe the image of a “dumb blonde” – she got used to it in the sitcom Three’s Company.
Suzanne Somers is also known for her exercise program for losing weight – apparently, thanks to it she has an excellent body. When Somers (who is 70 years old) talks about her 5 grandchildren – many people get really shocked.
Suzanne found out that one can lose weight without giving up the favorite dishes – provided that they do not coinside with certain types of food. She called her product mix system Somers system and wrote two books on this subject, which became best sellers.
The Somers system consists of two parts – recommendations for weight loss and keeping the reached weight.
Its essence is the following: you can eat protein and fat in different combinations, but you should never add carbohydrates to them at the same time. Hollywood stars, trying to lose weight as required by modern fashion, usually completely exclude carbohydrates from the diet, including almost all fruits and many vegetables.
Somers also recommends reducing the intake of sugar and other types of carbohydrates, but her diet allows you to eat all the fruits if only it is done on an empty stomach.
Suzanne also considers it possible to include in the diet absolutely all vegetables and even bread, cereals and various types of pasta if they are made of wholemeal and are not combined with fats and proteins. Somers claims that her approach to a diet is much more effective and healthier than a complete rejection of carbohydrates, in which those who want to lose weight consume, as a rule, a lot of proteins.
She once tried to follow such a diet, but because of all this heavy food she felt awfully and looked the very way she felt. One can not consider being normal consumption of meat three times a day and total rejection of fruit.
Now, Suzanne Somers is 70 years old, she is a US-recognized guru of the diets and writes books of recommendations on diet compliance and books on self-nutrition.
Susanna lives in Los Angeles and looks so blooming and full of strength that when you look at her thoughts about the diet somehow do not come to mind.
Nevertheless, Suzanne claims that her first attempts to get rid of excess weight were taken about 42 years ago. She then began her career on television and dreamed of getting a major role in the television series.
Somers was the only one who raised her son and she desperately needed money. Three days before the filming began, she received a call from the producer and said that he and the director consider her a bit plump for the role she applies to.
Suzanne was then 29 years old, and her weight was 10 kilograms above the norm. There was no way out – she began being interested in diets and tested them one by one.
She counted calories, bought mixtures to lose weight, starved, and ate just grapefruits. Each diet brought its results, but after losing a few kilograms, Suzanne inevitably regained her former weight as soon as she began to eat normally. By the time Somers turned 40, it became even harder for her to watch the weight. She continued to follow the diet and deprived herself of many products, but the results became less noticeable.
Enlightenment came to Somers in 1992, after that trip to France, when she was told that she could not eat fruit after dinner. She saw that her French friends ate everything they wanted and did not gain weight. Naturally, Suzanne began to ask questions and learned that they adhere to certain rules in eating and do not mix some foods during one meal.
Somers read everything she could find about the separate nutrition, talked with doctors and nutritionists and after a while started to conduct experiments on herself.
Quite unexpectedly, she lost 10 kilograms and then wrote her first book. And after that she received many letters from men and women who reported that they followed her recommendations and lost 15, 20 and even 50 kilograms.
So, Somers was convinced of the correctness of her method, which, she says, is to understand what sugar is, and stop eating it in huge quantities. Somers can not be called thin, she admits that she has a layer of subcutaneous fat, with which she does not want to part because she does not want to look like a fried chicken .
This woman does not know her exact weight for today, but she just stands in front of the mirror and looks at her naked body: the mirror tells her everything she wants to know about herself, and tells her what to do.
