Melissa has said in the past that a high protein, low carb diet help her shed the pounds.
“No trick, nothing to tell, just super boring life. You bring it real down, you don’t do anything fun and you go to bed at 7:30 — that’s the trick,” Melissa told Extra. She was probably joking, but there is definitely some truth in skipping happy hours and late night snacks!

She also says that putting less pressure on herself has paid off. “I truly stopped worrying about it. I think there’s something to kinda loosening up and not being so nervous and rigid about it that, bizarrely, has worked.”

Melissa actually has her very own plus-size clothing line. She told More magazine in 2015: “People don’t stop at size 12. I feel like there’s a big thing missing where you can’t dress to your mood above a certain number.” Shop the collection here!
