Amy Schumer is known for her sketch comedy series Inside Amy Schumer which she launched in 2013.
On the Jonathan Ross Show, Amy Schumer revealed the workout and diet routine she followed to prepare for Trainwreck. Schumer’s body type isn’t typical for Hollywood, and the fuller-figured comedian has definitely felt the pressure to lose weight. She revealed that she once dieted, but she won’t let that happen again.
Being in the spotlight can be difficult, especially when it comes to weight. Many actresses fit into a certain petite mold, but not Schumer—and she doesn’t have a problem with that.
To prepare for Trainwreck, Schumer was given a trainer who provided her with a specific diet plan. The diet plan included smoothies for breakfast, followed by very light meals throughout the day. Schumer wasn’t impressed with the diet plan—the trainer revealed to her that many Hollywood stars starve themselves when they are trying to lose weight.
Schumer dropped three pounds with the trainer’s help, but has no intention of sticking with the trainer’s meal plan. In fact, she mentioned that she wouldn’t be upset if those three pounds were gained back.
Schumer is an example that many women should look to for inspiration. It’s refreshing to see someone of her fame speak out against the trials and tribulations that women face on the daily to look a certain way.
