LOS ANGELES, April 23 (UPI) -- Former "Dancing with the Stars" competitor Chaz Bono says he has lost about 60 pounds in the last several months by exercising and eating healthier food.
"I still enjoy dancing. I still take classes," People.com quoted singer Cher's 44-year-old transgender son as saying at Saturday's 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards.
"I've just changed the way I eat," he said, adding he initially used the Freshology delivered-meal plan but now prepares his own meals.
"Diets don't work. You just have to change what you eat, and I have," he said. "I cook a lot of different stuff. ... I really avoid grains and starches, so meats and vegetables and fruits are my diet. I make them all different ways to keep it interesting."
Bono did not say what his weight was before the loss.
