Cuoco is an American actress and producer. She started her career in the 1990s by appearing in different projects as a supporting character.
Kaley rose to fame after playing Bridget Hennesy on the ABC sitcom 8 Simple Rules. However, the breakthrough in Kaley’s career came when she played Penny on the CBS sitcom, The Big Bang Theory.
Recently, by appearing on the cover of Shape, Kaley completely shocked her fans and followers.
She looked totally different than before. It was apparent that within the previous months, Cuoco had lost a significant amount of weight.
“I’ve never worked so hard to look good for something in my entire career,” Cuoco told People, “But I didn’t starve or kill myself with exercise. I went slowly, and it paid off.” So the question which comes to mind then is how did she do it.
Weight fluctuation was something that Cuoco has struggled with her entire life. Talking about this, Cuoco said, “I was always one of the girls, who bought three different size jeans. Because I never knew what my size would be on a given day.”

Kaley’s Struggle with Weight Fluctuations
Kaley blamed her habit of binge eating for her weight fluctuations. She said that she built the habit of binge eating along with her then-husband, Ryan Sweeting, who is a Tennis player. While Ryan needed snacks as fuel, it had a very negative impact on Cuoco’s appearance.
“When we first got married, it was so much fun to eat like him. We got into this habit we called the bedtime snack. The drawers next to the bed were filled with candy. Eventually, I realized it was mindless eating,” Kaley recalled.
She added, “So I cut that out. Our refrigerator and pantry have completely changed because we don’t eat crap anymore. No more soda, chips, cereal; we had boxes of stuff that only a 4-year-old would eat.”

Within a month of this binge eating habit, Kaley realized that it was a very negative impact on her health.
And after this realization, Kaley stepped back from this bad old habit. And as Cuoco was considering losing weight, she was contacted by Shape magazine for the cover.

Kaley ate mostly fruits and vegetables. To lose weight, Cuoco also stopped consuming red meat and substituted it with white meat. All in all, Kaley cut down her calorie consumption to only 1800 kcal per day.
To lose weight, Cuoco also took the help of the ancient exercise of yoga. Talking about her yoga routine, Cuoco said, “Doing yoga five times a week has transformed my body. I love being toned and having muscle; it’s so sexy and beautiful.” She added, “Everything, from the inside out, has completely changed for me.”
Kaley Enjoys Cheat Meals
There is nothing wrong with treating you on a given day. And Kaley occasionally gives treats herself to cheat meals. Talking about this, she said, “I know when I’m being good all week long then come Sunday, I’m going to lie by the pool, have a drink, and eat some pizza. Then I wake up on Monday morning and I’m all ready to start the week again.”
Cuoco added, “I’m just going to be in a bad mood all the time if there’s no light at the end of the tunnel.” You need something to know that you are progressing.
You need a reward for what you are doing. And there is nothing wrong with rewarding yourself. So live healthily and enjoy every moment of your life.
