Former Cheers star Kirstie Alley was desperately trapped in a vicious cycle of binge eating and consumed massive amounts of food every day. The star, who lost 75 pounds (34 kilograms) on the Jenny Craig diet plan, unveiled her newly svelte figure on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW today (06NOV06) wearing a mauve-coloured bikini. She says at her worst she would binge uncontrollably eating, "Twenty sugar-free Popsicles. Twelve grape sodas. Chips. Two burritos. A tostada. I was eating six, seven, eight thousand calories a day." The 55-year-old star tells Life magazine, "I had a holiday mentality. I ate with wild abandon." Alley says the motivation to start losing weight began with a simple thought, "I'm old, I'm fat. What am I worth?" The star tells Winfrey that she has more confidence now than she did in her younger years adding, "I was so introverted about my body. "When I looked back on my movies and things (I thought), 'Wow, you had a really nice body.' But, at the time, I was (feeling) not good enough." The star insists her life is back on track adding, "I feel happy with the way I look and feel. For me, that's the greatest thing that's happened."
