One look at recent photos of Sarah Palin makes it hard to believe she’s authored a fitness book. That’s not to say the former governor is overweight, on the contrary, Palin has recently showed off a noticeably smaller frame during an outing in California. What appears to be a topic of concern, however, is it seems she has become too thin. Nonetheless, the former vice presidential candidate attributed her weight loss to an upcoming fitness book.
Palin, 48, said that she wants to share her family’s way of combining delicious food with hard physical activity.
“Our family is writing a book on fitness and self-discipline focusing on where we get our energy and balance as we still eat our beloved homemade comfort food,” she said in an email to People.
She recently stunned onlookers while shopping with her daughter Willow in California’s Studio City. In response to criticism and questions about her substantial weight loss, the mother of five explained that she and her family members are currently writing a fitness book to help others lose weight.
“Our family is writing a book on fitness and self-discipline focusing on where we get our energy and balance as we still eat our beloved homemade comfort foods!” Palin told People.com. Palin, 48, described the project as a “unique and motivating book” before assuring that “we promise you what we do works and allows a fulfilling quality of life and sustenance anyone can enjoy.”
Palin’s eldest daughter Bristol, who is currently a contestant on ABC’s All-star “Dancing With The Stars,” also recently made headlines after shedding a large amount of weight. The 21-year-old single mom opened up about her weight loss journey.
“I’m definitely in better shape than I was last time, definitely. I’m just more active and I cut all the crap out of my diet! It’s that simple,” Bristol told Us Weekly adding, “And my kid’s a lot more rowdy, a lot more active. I’m running after him a lot! He’s huge! He thinks he’s a teenager already.”
In 2008 Palin, who was then sporting a much fuller figure, spoke about her diet and explained what exactly her low-carb diet consists of.
“My family and I eat a healthy diet heavy in wild Alaskan seafood, moose, caribou and fresh fruit,” Palin told the Wall Street Journal. “I guess my biggest pitfall is breakfast. I know it’s the most important meal of the day but I still haven’t bought into it. I hate to admit it, but a skinny white-chocolate mocha is my staple in the morning,” she added.
Her love of running inspired her to name her son “Track,” she told the Wall Street Journal in 2008.
Palin is a fan of low-carb eating, especially moose stew, a local delicacy.
Her love of the outdoors was captured on the TLC show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” which attempted to show the world what the former vice presidential candidate was like at home.
The show was canceled after one season.
