American Gianna Shortino lost 50 kg in order to become an actress
Gianna Shortino lived in New York and dreamed of becoming an actress. But she could not achieve serious roles due to her excess weight. During auditions, she always felt that she was being judged only for her looks and not for her acting skills. Only sometimes she was taken on cameo roles, where a not particularly attractive girl was supposed to appear according to the script.

When I was 18 years old, I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome due to being overweight. I always fought with him and tried different diets, but it did not help, - said Gianna in an interview with the Sun.
The turning point in the life of the actress was the main role in the musical Hairspray. The show is built around a charming bbw who, despite all the prejudices of others, goes to her dream and becomes a dancer. After the musical ended, Gianna was inspired to take decisive action. She underwent stomach surgery.
I had part of my stomach cut out, which made me less hungry. I don’t want this to sound easy because it was difficult for me. Six months before the operation, I had a series of tests, and I had to undergo psychological tests. She also worked with a nutritionist and switched to a liquid diet before surgery. Nevertheless, it was the best decision in my life, - said the actress.
Over the next 10 months of work on herself, the actress lost 50 kilograms!

The girl trained five times a week and completely revised her diet. She began to eat fish and vegetables, and drink only water (later she also began to use chicken). As a result, according to her, even relatives did not immediately recognize her, and friends were simply shocked by the change in appearance.

- climber (1 minute);
- lunges (2 minutes);
- gluteal bridge (2 minutes);
- leg raises (15 times)
All this in four approaches.
