Wendy Williams’ weight loss speculations started after she was recently spotted looking very thin. However, she had not lost her weight recently. Wendy Williams had a weight loss of 25 pounds during the quarantine in 2020 and 50 pounds in 2015.
Wendy Williams is an American broadcaster and writer. She has been the face and host of the nationally syndicated television talk show The Wendy Williams Show from 2008 to 2021.

The television host was recently photographed in New York and her legs looked really distinct because the skin of her legs looked really weird. Plus, she looked very tiny which sparked discussions about her weight loss.
Wendy Williams’ Weight Loss: The TV Personality Shared How She Lost Weight in Two Separate Instances!
Wendy Williams (@therealwendywilliamsonline) had a weight loss of about 25 pounds during quarantine and she lost 50 pounds in 2017 as well.
Wendy Williams was recently spotted leaving a building in New York in an appearance that left the fans very concerned because she looked very disorientated and she already suffers from various medical issues including lymphedema and Graves’ disease and she looked so sick. Her extremely trim frame was on display in a pair of small denim cut-off shorts which made the fans wonder if she had weight loss.
However, it doesn’t seem like Wendy Williams’ weight loss was recent. She did get slimmer but not recently. It was about two years ago during the quarantine by accident. She talked about it herself when she kicked off the 12th season of The Wendy Williams Show after the lockdown ended. She opened the show with ‘I’ve lost 25 pounds – look!’
The presenter then launched into the story of her weight loss. She shared that when she lost all that weight, she had not been doing it on purpose but it just sort of happened when ‘food became disgusting to her.’ At the beginning of the quarantine, she had just a normal relationship with food. She was, like most people, cooking and trying out various recipes. In that process, she was shoveling all kinds of stuff – everything from hot dogs to lobster, and king crab legs. And it became too much after a while and then she was ‘done with food.’
Wendy Williams, too done with food, must have started having very less food which caused her weight loss. She wasn’t even aware of the fact that she had lost 25 pounds until she went to visit the doctor for a colonoscopy. When the doctor told her how much she weighed, it was news to her and she was like ‘I haven’t weighed this little since high school.’ And that was the story of her unplanned weight loss.
But that’s not the only one. Wendy Williams also had a significant weight loss in 2015 which was not unplanned. When she hit 50, she felt it was like an equator to her life and she decided to go on a weight loss journey. And she did trim down her weight over a course of several years and by her 55th birthday, she was 50 pounds lighter.
Wendy Williams had to exercise some serious self-control to get on a diet and eat less for weight loss. She stopped eating meat and eating much. To cut back on her food, she shared that nothing worked effectively as saying to herself ‘Just push back, fatso. Just stop eating so much.’ She also avoided refined sugars, dairy, and eating after dark and ‘picked up on other great habits like juicing’ and started following a healthy, balanced diet.
I love greens – spinach is my favorite. I love kale, avocado, and cauliflower.
She also revealed that she started following a pescatarian diet (fish is the only animal she eats).
Besides that weight loss diet, Wendy Williams also started doing cardio and Pilates. She also said that she went to the gym because it was not about her losing weight at that point in her life but about trying to fight heart disease and made a revelation that she did get a weight loss surgery (liposuction and tummy tuck).
