Maria Menounos reveals she lost 40 pounds in college, was in and out of the hospital

By Gina DiFalco,

Maria Menounos arguably has one of the most fit bodies in the business but she confessed in a new interview with Ladies Home Journal that it hasn’t always been that way.

She revealed she lost 40 pounds when she was a freshman in college, and it all started at age 13 when she worked at a doughnut shop.

The Extra host explained to Ladies Home Journal, “Things got worse in college. I didn’t gain the Freshman 15 – I gained the Freshman 40…I grew to a size 14 and kept growing.”

This caused her to be hospitalized multiple times, she explained. Being overweight and that unhealthy made her feel “sick and lethargic.”

“I was in and out of the hospital multiple times for exhaustion, malnutrition and dehydration,” said Menounos, Fox News reports.

Menounos has signed a deal for an upcoming reality show on Oxygen called Chasing Maria Menounos, which debuts March 18. The show will feature her life at home living with her parents, Costas and Litsa, as well as her boyfriend Kevin Undergaro.
