No teen who grew up in the 90’s could forget about BET host Ananda Lewis.
Lewis, now 43, was a huge asset to the media world. After seeing how well she could communicate with a young audience,she was put in charge of bringing a few heavier topics front and center on Teen Summit.
In 2001, she left Teen Summit in order to start her own talk show called The Ananda Lewis Show. Unfortunately, it was cancelled after one season and we’ve heard little from her until now. Everyone’s favorite TV personality has recently been sharing her incredible weight loss transformation of more than 60 pounds with fans via Instagram.

According to Lewis, the last 20 pounds were the easiest to lose thanks to following the Metabolic Aftershock system. The system boasts “exercises that are short, fun, thrilling, and can be done anywhere without weights or gym equipment,” for only 15 minutes per day, three times a week.
We’re happy to see Ananda committed to a healthy exercise routine and hope to see more of her in the future!
