Chaz Bono has opened up about his impressive 85lb weight loss in a recent interview, saying he’s now swapped cake for healthy snacks like nuts and fruits, the Express reported November 28th. According to the article, “Chaz Bono opens up about his 85lbs weight loss, insisting he only has cake once a year,” the son of Sonny and Cher says he is happier and healthier now he has cut out 99% of grains and dairy from his diet. He commented, ‘I pretty much eat vegetables, meat, fruits, nuts…My birthday is the one day of the year I'll do cake.’ (

This inspired Yourwellness Magazine to explore how dieters unnecessarily avoid nuts, as well as other common mistakes that dieters make. Yourwellness Magazine noted the views of Jillita Horton, a certified personal trainer and fitness writer, who asserted, ‘Nuts have always gotten a bad rap from the dieting camp. But nuts are super-healthy and improve cholesterol profile.’ Yourwellness Magazine pointed out that two teaspoons of nuts like cashews, pecans, peanuts or walnuts can kill appetite for hours, leading to healthy weight loss.

Yourwellness Magazine outlined three other common mistakes that dieters make:

1. Wearing a weight loss suit. The only thing these weight loss space suits do is make exercisers sweat more, which makes them lose water faster. They also impair ability to work hard or fast when exercising.
2. Thinking that weight loss and weight gain take the same amount of time. A person can lose excess body fat in far less time than it took to put it on.
3. Believing it’s not safe to lose more than two pounds a week. For an obese person with a sedentary lifestyle, who consumes 5,000 calories on an average day, that’s equivalent to saying it is unsafe to consume 3,000 calories a day and exercise one hour a day.
