When actress Jennie Garth signed up to be on DWTS, getting in shape wasn't her main goal. But because cardiovascular disease runs in her family, being healthy is a top priority for her in her daily life. Here's how DWTS transformed Jennie:
"I’ve never really been a fan of my legs, and all of a sudden I thought, Hey, my legs look great! They’re more shapely. And since dancing is all about holding your shape using your core muscles, my abs came back on their own – without having to do any situps – so that was exciting!"
And on her diet changes:
"I eat a lot now. I’m always hungry. And when you’re rehearsing for six hours, sometimes you forget to eat. I snack on a lot of energy bars while we’re working, or a banana just to keep me going, and then I’ll eat a giant sandwich. I’m just burning through it. Now I can eat and not worry about it. "
