Chaz Bono has said that the considerable backlash against him joining Dancing With the Stars this season only motivates him to work harder.
Apparently so. He's lost five pounds just six days of rehearsals.
People reports that Bono is being whipped into shape by his partner, 23-year-old former So You Think You Can Dance finalist Lacey Schwimmer.
Bono’s weight loss is a result of adding dancing into his regular routine, and is not a result of any dietary changes - but he still diets ardently.
Bono has reportedly been adamant that some of the junk food on the show's rehearsal sets - courtesy of producers - could be thwarting his diet.
Chips, candy, granola and protein bars? Not gonna cut it. He has already made some very specific food requests in an effort to get into top shape.
He may not have the dance background (according to mom Cher) but it sounds like Bono is determined to put every ounce of effort into this.
