Sharon Osbourne admits she doesn't eat 'three times a week' after huge weight loss

Sharon Osbourne admits she doesn't eat 'three times a week' after huge weight loss

The star opened up on her dramatic weight loss

Sharon Osbourne has admitted a pretty shocking fact about her weekly eating habits.

Following a pretty dramatic weight loss using weight loss drug Ozempic, The Osbournes star revealed that she doesn't just attribute the drug to her slimmer figure.

Speaking on a recent episode of The Osbournes podcast, Sharon, 70, and her son, Jack, was 37, talked about prepping for a potential apocalypse - cheery stuff - when she disclosed that she doesn't eat 'three times a week'.

The pair were joined by guest star journalist, Jason Kennedy, as they discussed doomsday plans when the conversation soon turned to all things food.

Jack began: "If you have something that someone wants, they'll kill you for it. You know how far away we are as a society from complete and utter breakdowns? Nine meals.

"When you break it down, you are nine meals away from complete and utter breakdown."

He continued: "That's three days of breakfast, lunch and dinner. That goes away for people, they go three days without eating, they will murder each other, their neighbours, everything."

Sharon, however, revealed said that doing this was far from an apocalyptic possibility but was actually very much so part of her regular routine.

"God, I do that every week," she revealed. "At least three days without eating."

Jason then explained that Sharon's weekly diet routine was called 'intermittent fasting'.

Sharon's comments came after she sat down with fellow Brit, Piers Morgan, and opened up a little more on her Ozempic journey - namely that it had gone too far.

She confessed: "I didn’t want to go this thin. It just happened."

Talking about the appetite suppressant drug, Sharon explained: "You can’t stay on it forever. I’ve lost 42 pounds now, and it’s just enough."

But it's clear the rapid weight loss has come at a significant cost, given the several health side effects Sharon was faced with.

"You don’t throw up physically, but you have that feeling," she went on.

"I was about two to three weeks where I felt nauseous the whole time. You get very thirsty, and you don’t eat."

The weekly Ozempic injection suppresses a person's appetite by mimicking the hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that is released after eating, making people feel full and resulting in them eating less.

Common side effects of the weight loss jab include nausea and diarrhoea, but studies indicate potential side-effects are 'mild' and 'subsided with time'.
