Ree Drummond says she chooses her clothes carefully

One thing you’ve likely noticed about Ree Drummond is her colorful tops. She’s usually dressed in a flowing blouse and statement jewelry. However, Drummond doesn’t just wear these tops because of their stylish designs. She posted on Instagram that she wears these tops because of her tummy. After having a few children, many women have to dress differently since their body shape changes, and Drummond is no different.

The Pioneer Woman star admitted to her Instagram followers that she wears what she calls “blousy tops” in an effort to look her best and hide her figure. “I have been eating low carb for a couple of months, but there’s still plenty of calamity and chaos going on under my blousy top, which is why I have an undying loyalty to blousy tops,” Drummond wrote.

Ree confessed to drinking Slim Fast

The Food Network star has tried to adjust her diet so she can lose weight. One way she tried to shed pounds was by drinking Slim Fast every day. On Ree Drummond’s blog, she shared how she sometimes eats more than she planned. At one point, she was drinking the weight loss shake every day for breakfast and dinner. She confessed to her readers that she would compensate for the liquid meals by eating a lot of food for lunch—or as she described it, “eating myself silly.” Drummond’s eating habits did result in success. “I have lost seven pounds by drinking a Slim Fast shake for breakfast and dinner every day, and by eating myself silly at lunch,” she wrote.
