Dancing With the Stars contestant Ricki Lake dished about what she is calling the 'Derek Hough Diet' with Ellen DeGeneres, telling the talk show host that she has lost 13 inches on the 'diet' so far.
According to a report from Radar Online, the 'diet' really has nothing to do with what Lake does or doesn't eat. Instead it's a workout regime of dance rehearsals that surpasses anything the (original) Hairspray star has ever experienced.
"I lost more than 13 inches in a month -- it's crazy," Lake says. "The Derek Hough diet is the best: I lost 5 inches in my waist, 5 inches in my hips ... it's hardcore."
Ricki Lake looks amazing and is noted recently for equally amazing performances on DWTS. The fiancÃ©e of Christian Evans, Lake will no doubt be a svelte and sexy bride when she takes that walk down the aisle.
So what exactly is Lake doing during her 'Derek Hough Diet' routine?
"We work out all day long ... we are sweating all over each other ... a lot of people would feel that I'm very lucky to be in this position, but it's hard work and very fulfilling," she explains.
Well, it's more than plain to see that the 'Derek Hough Diet' is working beautifully for Ricki Lake. Do you think she stands a chance of winning Dancing With the Stars this season? Even if she doesn't emerge the winner, she will no doubt walk away having won. And her prize could very well be self-confidence, a gorgeous new look, and even years added to her life.
Congratulations to Ricki Lake on her loss of both weight and inches, and best of luck in the next few weeks of Dancing With the Stars!
