The decision to lose weight was obviously the right decision for Sara Rue. If you have seen her on-screen as Carmen Ferrara in Popular, it would be hard to believe that she is the same actress who plays the role of Dora in the American sitcom Impastor today.
She started acting as a child and has been in the entertainment business since 1988. In addition to her role in “Popular”, the role of Claude Casey in “Less than Perfect” has helped put her in the spotlight. She also hosted the CW reality series Shedding for the Wedding (2011), in which nine overweight couples competed for a dream wedding by trying to lose weight before their big day.
Sara took a recurring role in the comedy Rules of Engagement and remained in the series from 2010 to 2013, playing Brenda, and while there, she appeared in many other movies and television shows. Let’s learn more about the American actress, especially about her amazing journey to lose weight, which encouraged many people who thought it was impossible to lose weight.
Who Is Sara Rue: Kevin Price Wife?
Sara Rue is of Jewish descent. Her parents helped her channel her entertainment side while she grew up as the first of her two daughters. She was born on January 26, 1979, in New York City as Sara Schlackman. Her mother, Joan Schlackman (née Rue), works for the City Council and was an active Broadway theater actress, while her father, Marc Schlackman, is both a stage manager and an active Broadway entertainer.
When Sara Rue first appeared on screen, she was nine years old and played the role of Kevin Spacey’s daughter in the movie Rocket Gibraltar (1988). From then on, other roles followed, and it was not long before she appeared in over fifty films and television shows, including – Passed Away (1992), Pearl Harbour (2001), Man Maid (2008), Miss Dial (2013) – for movies and Grand (1990), Phenom (1993-94), Eastwick (2009-10), American Housewife (2017-2018), A Series of Unfortunate Events (2018) – for television series and many others.
Sara Rue was formerly married to director Mischa Livingstone, but the relationship that began in 2001 broke up in 2007. Her second husband is Kevin Price, with whom she shares two lovely daughters named Talulah and Adelaide. It’s not certain when they met or how long they were courted, but the couple has made a life-long commitment in 2011.
Here’s A History Of How She Lost 50 Pounds
Apart from medical issues, Sara Rue had other reasons to get rid of the extra weight she had been carrying around for years. Most of the time, as an overweight actress, she did not see herself getting to the height she had her eyes set on. But, don’t get it wrong, she is a supporter of the campaign to feel good in her own skin, no matter how tall or thin. Nevertheless, she simply had to lose weight because she saw greater potential in it.
To achieve her goal, she then joined the Jenny Craig program to help with diets and sports. We didn’t have to wait too long, because the actress only joined the program after a year and a half with a completely redesigned body. In 2011, she was shown in her very first bikini and showed off her breathtaking benefits, for which she worked really hard. She earned the right to brag because losing 50 pounds of weight is no child’s play.
During her weight loss journey, she took part in cardio training four days a week, maintaining a diet of 1,700 calories per day. The fact that she is a working mom didn’t help her, but no matter how much distraction she experiences, especially in the morning, she tries to get on the treadmill for at least 30 minutes, along with other strategies like hiking with friends and so on.
Talking about her journey so far, the actress shared some personal tips that have worked wonders for her. According to Sara, she avoids animal protein as soon as it is 7:30 p.m. and fills her pasta bowl with fresh spinach to reduce carbohydrates. She now has control over her food portions, unlike before when she would eat without hesitation.
Sara Rue is now the proud owner of a well-trimmed body and has worked with the pharmaceutical company Takeda to help people make weight loss decisions.
