Fans of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo know the Mama June Shannon wasn’t exactly known for leading a healthy lifestyle. That’s why everyone was quite surprised when the reality TV matriarch popped up in 2013 saying she’d lost 100 pounds “without even trying.”
In this video recorded at Mama June’s home, she revealed that her weight loss wasn’t, in fact, effortless. One of her tactics for dropping the pounds, she says, was soda. “People don’t think drinking sodas put on the weight, but they really do. I was drinking three sodas a day and now I went cold turkey.”
Plus, Mama June gave us a tour of her “normal” fridge, which included Pumpkin’s salad drawer. “Our refrigerator isn’t like the healthiest, but it’s just condiments and stuff like that,” Mama June says.
