Marissa Jaret Winokur Owes New Slim Figure To Hard Work And Popcorn

We caught a glimpse of Broadway star Marissa Jaret Winokur on GMA this morning, and we were blown away at how tiny she has gotten. Wish we had that photo, because it is much more jaw-dropping than the pic above.

The actress is staying skinny after a recent 60 lb. weight loss, and credits her maintainance program to a sound diet, remaining active, and to popcorn.

The 39-year-old mom to a little boy, says she snacks on popcorn EVERY day! But she doesn't go crazy with a huge bowl basted in butter.

Marissa still enjoys the crunchy snack by eating the 100 Calorie microwave popcorn snack bags.

We are a popcorn freak, too. Our fave is Pop Secret(butter). Yumm-o!!
Plus, Marissa says she also eats boiled eggs. Here's exactly what she told Amy Robach this morning:

"The biggest thing is preparing my life. I traveled to come here. I had my 100 calorie microwavable popcorn with me to eat in my hotel room. And I brought hard boiled eggs with me on the plane. I didn’t allow the plane food to get in the way. You’ve got to keep working out. I’m also just mentally like, this is for life."

We tip our hat to Miss Marissa! Nice going! She's now a healthy size 2. She says she did it on her own, unlike most celebs who have a major weight loss company guiding their every dietary step, as they lose lbs. and gain big money in commercials.

"It wasn't an overnight thing," Marissa says.  "I have no sponsor. I'm totally doing it myself. I actually counted calories and worked out. It's literally 1,200 calories and worked out every day."

Congratulations, Marissa! You look great!
