Angela Bishop shares one simple health change to shed excess weight

Studio 10's Angela Bishop has given insight to her recent weight loss, admitting she changed one simple thing in her routine to drop her excess weight. 

The 52-year-old explained her simple lifestyle change didn’t involve altering her diet or hitting up the gym - but instead involved giving up energy drinks.

“I recently gave up my sugar-free energy drink addiction,” she revealed on Studio 10. 

“'I was drinking between 2-3 cans a day and changing absolutely nothing else about my diet, I've lost two kilos in three and a half weeks.”

Angela admitted it was a major struggle giving up her addiction. 

“The withdrawal from the drinks was very painful,” she recalled.

“I had very very bad headaches and didn't feel good at all.”

But since officially kicking her cravings, the star says she feels “great”. 

The veteran entertainment reporter lost her husband Peter Baikie to a rare cancer in 2018, and together they share 12-year-old Amelia.

"I don't try to keep the grief in when it hits, otherwise I'll do myself an injury. You've got to go and find somewhere to have a little cry. I do it a lot in the traffic in the car, or in the carpark at work. You just have to let it out," she told Australia Women's Weekly.

"You've got to quickly have a dash to the loo and have a cry then reapply the mascara and come back again."

She added: "Some days I think I'm resilient, others I think I'm cactus. I haven't got enough distance to be able to look at it objectively. I don't know if I ever will. But you have to get up and put one foot in front of the other and keep going. And, of course, I've got the best reason to do that."
