Gogglebox: Why Anastasia is the happiest she's been in a long time

Anastasia has been out and proud about her summer weight loss. So, Faye decided to find out her how she did it. 

Her overhaul kicked off after a trip to Greece and a promise to her aunty.

“When I went to Greece, I was exhausted most of the time - especially with the heat,” she tells Faye.

Then Anastasia made a life-changing promise to her aunt.

“My aunty said, 'Please lose weight when you get back,' and I promised her I would,” she says.

But instead of crash dieting or being super restrictive, Anastasia’s approach has been much simpler. 

“All I’ve done is just proper eating, that’s it, nothing more nothing less,” she explains. “There’s no special diet, no nothing and the weight has just fallen off and I’m happy for the first time in a long time. I’ve still got a long way to go, but I feel sexy.”

Anastasia isn’t alone either. Some of the other Goggleboxers have turned over a healthy new leaf.

On the Dalton’s couch, Holly spends a fair amount of time slathering herself with Deep Heat like her life depends on it.

It’s clearly been a baptism of fire into the world of training.

“You can hardly walk,” Matt exclaims.

Meanwhile the newcomer, Tim, is struggling to stick to his keto diet.

“My keto diet has well and truly been left at the curb,” he laments while eating the biggest lamington we’ve ever seen.

Leanne is quick to make it clear that he’s only been following the high-protein, low-carb diet for a week.

Although Jad isn’t on a new health regime, he doesn’t give up a chance to try and school Matty on a bit of self-care.

While he’s applying his nightly moisturiser, Matty seems puzzled asking Jad if he always moisturises his face.

“Yeah you have to, bro, your face is the biggest asset, it’s what makes you money,” Jad says.

Then he drops this pearl of wisdom: “Your face is your investment, you have to protect your investment – scrub, moisturiser, eye cream, the whole lot,” he states. “People say, ‘You’re 33 but look 23,’ and it’s because I look after myself.

Pretty wise, Jad, but it doesn’t seem like Matty is sold.
