Nene Leakes has been showing off a slimmed-down figure for a few months and now she’s finally revealing her weight loss secrets.

In a recent interview with Life & Style, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star reveals that the 20-pound weight loss wasn’t completely intentional.

“I only wanted to lose five or 10 pounds,” she said “I like being a curvy girl.”

She wanted to look fierce in her high-priced wedding gown, but didn’t cut calories or deprive herself from her desires.

“I’m not trying to starve myself. I love food! I didn’t count calories or carbs,” she said. “Counting doesn’t get me anywhere. I do portion control when trying to lose weight. Eat less, move more.”
