- Jenna Bush Hager and Hoda Kotb weighed themselves live on Today.
- The morning show co-hosts are starting intermittent fasting.
- Jenna and Hoda plan to fast between 6:00 pm and 10:00 am.
“Okay, I haven’t done this in a long time,” Jenna, 37, said as she stepped closer to the scale. “It’ll be fine.”
"We've been stressing out," Hoda, 55, said. "We're starting intermittent fasting. We call it intermittent gorging."
Jenna quickly chimed in with their serious goals. "We’re doing it to be healthy,” Jenna shared. "They say it's very good for brain health."
Hoda agreed: “And to also improve our brain health and everything else.”
The positivity plummeted quickly as they approached the scale.“It’s like jumping off a cliff,” Jenna says. They hold hands and step on the scales simultaneously and finally look down at the numbers.
“This is why I don’t really weigh myself," Jenna said after looking at the number. “I think I weigh twice as much as my sister. Like, two Barbaras could fit in me.”
Jenna asks "How do you feel?" and Hoda responds "I feel 158."
Jenna and Hoda are just two of the many celebs who've tried intermittent fasting recently. They're in very good company. Jennifer Aniston follows it, Jenna Jameson loves it, Vanessa Hudgens says it makes her feel “healthier,” and Halle Berry says she usually eats just two meals a day on her intermittent fasting diet.
“Intermittent fasting is when you allow yourself to eat only during a specified window of time each day,” Alissa Rumsey, RD, a NYC-based dietitian and owner of Alissa Rumsey Nutrition and Wellness previously told Women's Health. It usually involves fasting for a certain number of hours or even days that are spaced out during the week, and there’s no “right” way to do this, says Sonya Angelone, RD, a spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Not everyone is an intermittent fasting fan. Jillian Michaels recently shared an IGTV video with all her thoughts on the popular diet. She agrees it has benefits, however, weight loss is not among them.
