Joanna Krupa Admits She Used Laxatives To Lose Weight

Posted on November 15th, 2013 at 5:14 am

jJoanna Krupa comes off as one confident lady, but she revealed in a recent interview that her self security didn’t come without a price.

The Real Housewives of Miami star tells People that, when she was younger, she used to be disappointed in her body, so she developed an eating disorder.

Krupa reveals, “I gained weight and struggled to lose it quickly in order to pursue my dreams of being a model. Being 20 years old, I had no idea how to lose weight fast and laxatives were an easy way out.”

But Joanna stopped before things got life threatening, saying, “Thank God I didn’t hurt myself and stopped.”

What’s next for the star? She tells People, “I would love to have twins – a girl and a boy, but who knows if that would happen. It would be my ideal situation. Wham, bam be done with it.”

      I’ve been overweight all my life and tried so many things. Different things work for different people and I was lucky enough to find one that worked for me. I lost 19 pounds in one month without exercise and it has been a life changer. I’m a little embarrased to post my before and after photos here but if anyone actually cares to hear what I’ve been doing then I’d be happy to help in any way. Just shoot me an email at and I’ll show you my before and after photos, and tell you about how things are going for me with the stuff I’ve tried. I wish someone would have helped me out when I was struggling to find a solution so if I can help you then it would make my day
