Kyle Richards, 54, revealed that she lost weight by giving up alcohol, bread and sugar.
Kyle Richards has looked noticeably thinner in recent months.
Initially, Kathy Hilton’s 54-year-old sister was accused of taking the diabetes drug Ozempic to lose weight.
But on Tuesday, the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star — who shared an adorable gym selfie last week — said there’s another reason to shed the pounds.
The wife of Los Angeles real estate agent Maurizio Umansky gave up alcohol seven months ago.
“The truth is, I don’t miss it at all,” the star said on her Instagram Story after reacting to a fan’s comment about saying no to spirits.

Hold the martini! The wife of Los Angeles real estate agent Maurizio Umansky gave up alcohol seven months ago
“I’m freaking out, so I don’t see the point right now,” said the reality star, noting that she has no time frame on when she might be sipping a few martinis again.
She also said thatebruary 15 would mark seven months since she went wine.
And when another fan asked her if she missed her favorite margarita, she replied, “So far, no…”
And it’s not just alcohol she gave up. She also said no to bread, pasta and sugar.
“I eat protein, fruits and vegetables,” she wrote on social media. Now that I’m the weight I want to be, I’m going to have a small amount of pasta etc. once in a while. But no alcohol since July 15th.
Richards also works out constantly as she has snippy photos of herself in the gym at home. She said on the Internet that she sweats every day.
Kyle has not taken well the allegations that she is in Ozempic.
Richards told Dailymail.com that she found it frustrating to see her hard work rejected as a result of the “cheat drug”.

“When people try to blame my appearance on surgery or Ozempic, which would be completely irresponsible when diabetics can’t get their hands on it, it’s really frustrating for me,” Kyle explained.
‘It bothers me.’ I prefer to inspire people with what I’m doing so they can experience the same things I’ve been doing and see what happens to them.
Last week she was seen at her gym.
Kyle donned a matching gray workout set complete with a V-neck sports bra and high-waisted leggings.

No baguette for me: it’s not just the alcohol I’ve given up. She also said no to bread, pasta and sugar. “I eat protein, fruits and vegetables,” she wrote on social media. “Now that I’m the weight I want to be, I’m going to have a small amount of pasta once in a while.”
She had her brown hair pulled back in a ponytail and a black baseball cap on her head. The actress also wore a pair of gray and orange sneakers with a black Apple Watch.
For the photo, she sported toned arms and toned abs. “Okay, Monday…let’s do this,” she wrote in the post.
Ozempic is an antidiabetic medicine used to treat type 2 diabetes.
The drug, under the brand name Wegovy, is an anti-obesity medication for long-term weight control.
The Little House on the Prairie actress then reflected on the changes she made to her lifestyle in order to achieve her toned figure.

I noticed a huge change when I cut alcohol, sugar and carbs out of my diet. I was only going to do this for a few weeks until I got to where I wanted to be fit at weight.
I didn’t put a timetable on it. I was so taken aback, and I thought, “I don’t feel like going back.” I started taking it to the next level by working out 2 hours a day. I really do make a point of eating well and taking care of my body, and I feel like it shows.
She also talked about fans’ reactions to her weight loss journey.
“There were trolls, but I got into my DMs and got inundated with so many people explaining how I inspired them. People are really following me by giving up sugar and carbs or doing exercise.
