Soap fans will recognise Natalie J Robb from playing Moira Dingle (also Barton) on Emmerdale. The actress has played the barmaid/farmer for over 10 years now, after making her debut on the soap in July 2009. Recently, Natalie has caught the attention of fans for her slimmer figure. So how did she do it? The 44-year-old has spoken about how she managed to shed the pounds. And many will be surprised to learn she did it all without a diet. Natalie credits her weight loss to hours of filming on the ITV show.
Speaking in an interview with the Daily Star, she said: “We were working so much we were flat out, in sometimes 10 to 12 scenes a day.
“You forget to eat. I have been just watching what I eat and stuff like that.
“I’ve not been training and not had time to train.”
Natalie also admitted that she’s come to love her curves.
She told the Mirror: “I was given these curves by my mum, and I’m not ashamed of them – we both have boobies and a bum that sticks out.
Speaking to The Mirror, Laura said: “At its worse, I used to drink two-litre bottles of Coke a day. I know now how much sugar is in it.”
Laura added: “It was so much caffeine, so much sugar. You get a bit older and weight is harder to lose.
“Then I cut the Coca-Cola out and started to notice the difference and then just decided to keep it up.”
One can of the fizzy pop has nearly 150 calories, and Laura was packing in an extra 1,700 calories a day with the sugary habit.
Drinking two litres a day, Laura was putting away 840 calories and an astounding 212-grams of sugar per day.
This is something many people do without realising the devastating effects on their waistline, and cutting this out could be enough to really beat the pounds.
