It seems every season of Dancing with the Stars, at least one contestant undergoes a major physical transformation, and this season's been no different. After last night's episode, all eyes were on former talk-show host Ricki Lake and partner Derek Hough, who are in the lead after receiving an almost-perfect score of 29 out of 30 points from the judges. But we've been watching Lake for a different reason: The star has already lost more than 15 pounds this season. No doubt about it— dancing does a body good!
In addition, Lake's been following the Freshology program. She's not the only contestant following this gourmet calorie-controlled eating plan. Other DWTS contestants who are reportedly fans of Freshology include Anna Trebunskaya. Other celebrities who swear by it to keep their figures trim and fit include Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Lopez and Mario Lopez.
Lake says that dancing doesn't feel like a workout to her, even though she and the other contestants are exercising for upwards of six hours per day. An added perk to her weight loss? She says her sex life has never been better!
