Melissa McCarthy is killing it on and off the screen. The 45-year-old Spy actress walked the red carpet at the 21st Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday, looking beautiful in a floor-length green gown with tropical print.

Although the dress landed her on a few ‘worst dressed’ lists for its palm-tree design, we think she looks better than ever! The Ghostbusters star showed off her 75-pound weight loss, looking healthy and happy as she strolled the carpet smiling for photographers and waving to the crowd.

She revealed to OK! magazine, she started seeing the pounds come off after she altered her mind-set on working out and dieting. She credits sticking to a high-protein, low-carb diet as part of her success. She made a point to explain to the news outlet, that “low” carb, not “no” carb has made it easier for her to stay on track.

Celeb trainer and nutritionist Charlene Ciardiell has said that the comedienne’s secret to success is interval training – “Hit the pavement or treadmill for 20 to 30 minutes, alternating between walking or jogging for a minute, then running or sprinting for a minute” – and a healthy diet.

Although the actress-turned-clothing designer never expected to lose this much weight, she told the mag she’s not complaining. Her new business venture, Melissa McCarthy Design collection under her brand Seven7, targets plus-size women, her goal to bring fun, stylish and fabulous clothing to woman of all shapes and sizes.
