I lost over 4 stone but still eat fry-ups and Chinese takeaways says ex Hollyoaks star Davinia Taylor | The Sun
HOLLYOAKS legend Davinia Taylor shed a whopping four stone – without ditching her beloved bacon and egg fry-ups or Saturday night Chinese takeaways.
Looking at the superfit 45 year-old mum-of-four today, it's hard to believe that just a few years ago, she struggled to even perform the simplest of household tasks.
"Even unloading the dishwasher was too much hassle back then," Davinia, who shot to fame as Jude Cunningham in the Channel 4 soap back in the '90s,tells The Sun.
"I was sluggish, underwhelmed, flatlined, exhausted and uninspired. I had shoddy sleep, low self-esteem, no energy and was overweight."
But the former Primrose Hill party girl turned her life, and her body, around when she realised that she was eating all the wrong things – foods that were playing havoc with her hormones and contributing to uncontrollable cravings.
"People need to realise that if they are overweight it's not their fault and they aren't greedy and lazy," she stresses. "Many of the foods we are eating are overprocessed and make us addicted because of what they do to your hormones."
