Ree Drummond set a target weight in January 2021 for her daughter Alex's wedding day on May 1, and she hit that target exactly to the pound. Drummond gave a quick summary of her approach to losing weight on TikTok, and she went into more detail on her blog.
She began with simply controlling her portion size and exercising more, but Drummond hit a plateau after 6 weeks. She upped her game by focusing more on muscle mass, followed with an increase in her protein intake.
Drummond also shared her experiences with fad diets like keto and intermittent fasting, which failed to work for her. Despite that, she encourages her followers to do what feels best and works for them, and to consult a doctor before starting anything new.
