Robin Quivers’ Weight Loss in 2022: The 70-Year-Old Star Was Able to Lose 80 Pounds Due to Fasting and a Vegan-Balanced Diet: Today’s Updates!
Robin Quivers (@quivers.robin) appeared on Dr. Oz's show to discuss her health and weight loss journey. She's best known as Howard Stern's long-time "sensible sidekick," but this time she's taking the stage to share how she lost 80 pounds and got healthy today.
Robin has worked with Stern for 30 years and has been open about her ongoing weight struggle. She claims that the events of 911 provided her with the wake-up call she needed, and she began following a plant-based diet, which helped her lose an incredible 80 pounds and even saved her life.
Robin last appeared on the show after undergoing a 12-hour cancer surgery. She stated that all of the scans were negative and that she feels great. Robin stated that not eating healthy had many consequences and that she was not getting the most out of her life. When Robin looks at pictures of herself before she lost weight, she sees a person who put on a smile and went out into the world as best she could, but it led to feelings of failure and depression. She stated that she was not feeling well.
She explained that she had heard about fasting and had tried it, which made her realize that what she was eating was related to how she felt. She claimed that the moment she was free of the food, she felt better. Robin published a book called The Vegucation of Robin: How Real Food Saved My Life, in which she reveals her health secrets.
Robin's Vegucation is not a diet book, but it does include 90 of her favorite vegan recipes. Robin initially wanted to break the cycle of obesity, high cholesterol, and diabetes in her family by switching to a plant-based diet. She rejected the notion that things simply happen to the body as it ages and that people are powerless to prevent them.
Robin Quivers is known for her sense of humor, but when she ran and finished the New York City Marathon a few weeks ago, she knew her weight loss achievement was no laughing matter. "Whew, it was much harder than I expected, but I can't believe I did it," she said on the phone with ESSENCE.com recently... Quivers, 70, never imagined herself as an athlete, let alone running more than three miles a day, let alone 26.2 miles in the New York City Marathon.
She did, however, ran for six hours and nine minutes. She remembers being so tired around the 15th mile that she stopped at a local bread shop to get something in her stomach. She said,
I told myself, 'I need to get something real; my body can't do it on this.'
The Maryland native was running to raise funds for her newly formed charity, the 15 Foundation, whose mission is to highlight people who are doing outstanding things for their communities, particularly in the field of education. She added, "It was education that gave me the life I have today, so I wanted to highlight organizations that are dedicated to improving children's educational lives."
Running a marathon is just one of the things Quivers has accomplished in the last three years that she never in a million years imagined she could do, along with losing 80 pounds and becoming a vegan. She looks completely different and healthy in 2022. She said, "This has been phenomenal for me, and it has completely changed my life."
