Carrie Fisher Reveals Weight Loss Secret ...

by at . Comments

Jenny Craig gets plenty of credit for Carrie Fisher's weight loss - over 50 pounds in the past year - but without the psychiatric hospital Silver Hill in New Canaan, Conn., the actress says she never would have gotten her life back together.

"They really did heal me. It's the alma mater that matters," she said.

At Thursday's Silver Hill Hospital gala in N.Y.C., she extolled the virtues of the 80-year-old facility, where she was treated for alcohol addiction and bipolar disorder.

Fisher said that during her stay "there was a president at Silver Hill, I'm not kidding. He had really bad breath. I told people not to get down wind of the president."

She did not name said president, but did share some reflections on topping out at 180 pounds a year ago, and how much different she feels since that high mark.

Of what how she looked and felt a year ago, she said, "You have that last gigantic meal, look in the mirror. None of your clothes fit, and ... forget it."

"I have a lot of trouble [keeping the weight off]," admitted Fisher, who still hopes to lose 10 more. "I really have to be held down when I pass a 31 flavors."

She also exercises. A lot. "You do the treadmill first, which is this horrendous, evil thing," she said. "And then you get on the elliptical for 30 to 52 minutes."
