“I Love Me”: Tia Mowry Shows Off 20-Pound Weight Loss In Bikini
Not long ago, Tia Mowry talked about how she’d put on a few pounds and out of nowhere, found herself being body shamed by people on social media. Those body shamers included other women. In March of 2016, the actress caught a follower saying, “getting fat” and confronted the young woman in epic fashion:
I don't normally do this, but I wanted to prove a point. I just posted a few days ago about embracing and uplifting others about body image. Here, @miekk_ felt the need to say I was getting fat. I took a look at your profile and I was sad to see that you WORK for YOUNG African American girls aiding in their studies. I hope this isn't what you would tell your girls? Does your BOSS know that this is how you degrade other WOMAN? @hbcutravelers Internet BULLYING is not cool and it needs to stop. Would you say this to my face? Is this how you speak to yourself when YOU look at yourself in the mirror. Again, I'm shining a light on this issue hoping to see change. Love and uplift! This is not just about me getting called fat. This isn't just about me. I could care less! Im standing up for the people that like to hide behind computers cyber bulling calling many gay, skinny, slut, ugly, fat, the list goes on and on. Cyber bullying needs to stop!
More than a year later, Mowry, who changed her diet drastically after finding out that she had endometriosis, has lost 20 pounds. On a current family vacation to Hawaii, the 39-year-old showed off that weight loss, her glowing skin and some fresh new braids while posing in a very cute bikini:
The mind behind the cookbook Whole New You, Mowry told PEOPLE that she no longer consumes processed foods and dairy, and instead, opts for whole, healthy foods. Her favorites include gluten-free pancakes, smoothies, fish, vegetables, and fermented foods that aid in relieving the pains that come with endometriosis, particularly miso, sauerkraut and kimchi. Mowry also loves all things kale. The actress’ staple is a kale and almond fried rice dish she makes. As she told the publication, “What I eat and what I put into my body is extremely important to me.”
Not to mention that Mowry has also been working out more. She sometimes trains with her younger brother, Tavior, and she’s still a big yoga fan:
But if you ask Mowry how you too can lose 20 pounds, she’ll likely tell you to do what she did — putting together clean meals out her cookbook:
Oh, and occasionally making space and time for an ice cream cone, of course:
