10. Christina Aguilera
When Christina first came onto the scene, she was as tiny as a twig! She was never shy to flaunt her slim figure with really revealing clothing that was barely there. Her most shocking appearance was when she went through her raunchy phase in releasing her hit song Dirty. She was pretty much almost naked in the music video and had people`s jaws dropping. She was wild, crazy and out of control and did not care at all what anyone thought. This mindframe definitely came in handy when the blonde celeb gained a bunch of weight. Over the years Christina’s weight has fluctuated, and nobody failed to notice. In 2012, she plateaued to a major weight gained that was significant enough for her to decide that it was time to take control in her appearance once again. She began a fresh diet program which limits one`s eating to 1600 calories per day in order to limit what is going in one`s body.

Fifty Cent majorly turned heads when he dropped over fifty pounds dramatically. He was barely recognizable! He actually did this in order to act in the film Things Fall Apart about a high school football player who gets diagnozed with cancer. The photographs released were shocking.

He has gone on to pursue other career moves aside from rapping which includes acting. He shows his dedication to the craft of acting by pushing his body to the limits. He lost the weight really rapidly by going on a liquid diet for nine weeks. We are not sure how healthy this diet is because it seems like a major shock to the system.

1. Gordon Ramsay
This weight loss came as a total shocker to the public. First of all when you are as good a chef as Ramsay is, it can be very difficult to make healthy choices with all of the temptation constantly in front of you at work. He is constantly taste testing and surrounded by amazing food, that it was no wonder he was not very slim and trim. His wife was actually the motivation behind his 50 plus pound weight loss. Surprisingly, Gordan admits that he suffered from low self- esteem, which seems really hard to believe if you have ever watched Hell`s Kitchen. He was not happy with the way he looked and felt bad that his wife had to climb in bed with someone who was so overweight. He began working out like crazy and eating better in fear of his health declining due to his weight. He rides bikes in his home with his trainer for an hour and works out at least 3 times a week. He has even released a cooking book aimed at healthy choices that he approves. He looks better than ever, feels better than ever and there is no doubt that his wife approves this improved chef.
