How did Katie Maloney Lose Weight?

Talking about her losing weight, Katie said, “I don’t do any dieting.” She continued, “I understand how to eat for my metabolism, especially with being insulin resistant or insulin-sensitive. Now I just have a great understanding of nutrition and what kinds of food I should and shouldn’t be eating.”

By balancing her diet and exercising on a daily basis, Katie succeeded in losing 20 pounds. Her current weight is 140 pounds as compared to her old weight, 160 pounds.
While talking to People, Katie admitted that she has faced body-shammers throughout her life. Katie said that dealing with body shamers all time made her a very annoying and “unlovable” person. Talking about her experience, Maloney said,
“Imagine finally finding the courage and strength to finally love yourself enough to stand up for yourself to then be ridiculed and torn down again. It took me three years. I was a very unhappy person. I took it out on everyone including myself. I was unlovable.”
She further said, “For the last three years I let my body become a topic of conversation. I say ‘let’ because I didn’t have the courage or self-love to argue it. For three years. I’m not perfect. I know who I am. But I’m not a weak bit*h. I vowed to make changes. And I did.”
