"Meats and vegetables and fruits are my diet," Cher's son Chaz Bono says of his new eating healthy routine.

Chaz Bono has gone through many body transformations.

But Cher's 44-year-old son's latest look is a much slimmer frame —  60 pounds lighter, to be exact.

"I've just changed the way I eat," he told People at the  GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday . "Diets don't work. You just have to change what you eat, and I have." 

For Bono, that has meant  "I really avoid grains and starches, so meats and vegetables and fruits are my diet. I make them all different ways to keep it interesting."

Bono used the  Freshology  delivered-meal plan to achieve his initial weight loss, but now, he says  "I cook a lot of different stuff."

As for his work out routine, the former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant  says  "I still enjoy dancing. I still take classes." He also added that he does regular  martial arts training.

Bono elaborated on his diet and fitness regimen on Twitter:

What's worked for me is, no sugar, no grains, no dairy except goat cheese, no white starches, portion control, and high intensity workouts.

I find it so ironic that I'm getting tweets from folks asking me for diet advice. It's not about dieting, it's changing eating habits 4ever.

Thanks for all the congratulatory tweets about my weight loss. If I can change my diet, giving up grains, sugar, and dairy, anyone can!
