Tori Spelling said earlier this year that she exercised and watched what she ate in order to lose weight following the birth of her baby. However, the former 90210 star reportedly made everything up.
Although the actress told Us Weekly that she lost the weight by eating fish, vegetables, soup, and a variety of healthy snacks, the whole thing was apparently a sham. In her recently-released tell-all Spelling It Like It Is, she admitted that she basically pulled the world's collective leg.
"I feel like I took off the weight safely, and I'm totally happy here," she said at the time.
According to the New York Daily News, the truth behind Tori Spelling's weight loss is a bit more risky than she initially revealed. Instead of exercise and a healthy diet, she basically stopped eating altogether.
"I really don't exercise much, period. So I took off my weight the old-fashioned way. I like to call it the Just Keep Your F***ing Mouth Shut and Eat Air diet. It's all the rage," she wrote.
Tori Spelling continued, "My publicist had given me clear instructions about what to say about my weight loss. Women didn't want to know that I had lost weight through dieting, not exercising. I didn't want to be the a**hole who didn't work for it. So I said that I swam. It was sort of a bad choice. I can't do much more than a doggy paddle."
This is definitely a little different from the stuff she told Us Weekly earlier this year. Instead of being upfront about how she shed the weight, Tori Spelling cooked up a story that sounded more believable and made her look better to the public.
"My doctor suggested I try swimming. It's good for the whole body and low-impact since you're weightless. So I started doing that in our pool in January. I don't count laps. I'll swim until I'm sore or play Marco Polo with the kids instead," the actress explained.
The Inquisitr previously reported that Tori Spelling and her family are having to tighten their belts a bit following the cancellation of their reality series Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood. Although she grew up rich, Spelling is coping rather well with the changes.
"We're in the entertainment business, and things change year to year. We don't have a series on the air right now, so we have to be more restrictive of what we can spend, just like anyone who doesn't currently have a steady job," she recently explained.
