Phylicia Rashad loses 35 pounds, looks awesome



Phylicia Rashad has been wasting away as part of a new Jenny Craig spokesperson gig, dropping 35 pounds in eight months, Us reports. She must have been sneaking those hoagies when Cliff wasn't home before.

The 61-year-old is going to show off the results in a new commercial set to air Saturday for the diet plan, Us reports (watch the commercial and an interview with Clair Huxtable above). Her food intake dropped to 1,200 calories a day and she did 30-45 minutes of exercise up to four times a week.

"The most rewarding thing about reaching my goal weight is that I feel so much lighter," she said in a statement. "There's just an overall sense of well-being. And there's the increased energy as well. It's nice to have people say you look nice. Who knew losing weight could be so much fun?"

In all fairness, Rashad looks faboo anyway. You show us any other 61-year-old with skin like that and we'll show you the creepy serial killer from Silence of the Lambs.
