Danielle Brooks’s Weight Loss: How Is Danielle Brooks Losing Her Weight?
Sparkling in every role she steps on, Danielle Brooks (@daniebb3) is a well-known face in the entertainment biz. Promoting body positivity, Danielle is now on her weight loss journey.
Danielle, who refers to herself as “the voice of curves” with her hashtags, has talked about her body image since her attempts to lose weight after giving birth to her daughter Freya in 2019 weren’t successful.

She wrote on Instagram:
I’ve muted my voice for a few months now out of shame. I felt shameful about gaining weight. Even though I brought a whole human into the world, I still felt shameful because I wasn’t able to maintain my normal body weight post-pregnancy. And a year later I have only lost roughly 20 lbs. of a 60-lb. weight gain. I was quiet in hopes to post that snatchback photo like so many celebrities miraculously do.
Along with defending Lizzo on her detox diet, Danielle also revealed what she has been doing to keep her weight loss in check. She shared:
I’m doing all kinds of diets, cleanses, making all kinds healthy choices. Not because I don’t love myself now, but because I DO love myself, my body and my mind. [Because] I want to continue to feel strong and sexy without catching ‘the sugars’ [diabetes] or any other disease. It’s okay showing the in between of growth. You ain’t always gotta have it all the way together. Just speaking from the heart.
Also posting videos of herself doing workouts, Danielle, currently 32 years, is surely passionate about her body transformation journey and is motivating her fans and followers as well.

According to Netflix, the ensemble also includes Adair Curtis of Styling Hollywood in interior design, Erik Curtis, a carpenter, Nick Cutsumpas in external design, and former Project Runway participant Paige Mobley for special projects.
According to Architectural Digest, the first season of Instant Dream Home contains eight episodes, each of which will focus on a family that has made a difference in their neighborhood but whose home needs a lot of TLC.
The person who nominated these deserving homeowners is also responsible for getting the nominee and the rest of their family out of the house so Danielle Brooks, the host and team leader, and the rest of the cast can work their magic.
