Kathy Bates Daily Routine

Kathy Bates has dropped 60 pounds, and the secret to her weight-loss success is simple. “Mindfulness,” the actress told Us Weekly earlier this month. “Just knowing when to push my plate away.”

The “American Horror Story” actress spoke to the magazine while attending WebMD’s Health Heroes event in New York City. The 70-year-old revealed that  her niece tipped her off to the weight-loss secret.

“My niece told me this little secret, I guess it’s no secret, it’s a biological thing, that at some point when you’re eating, you have this involuntary sigh and that’s really your brain and your stomach communicating that you’ve had enough,” Bates told Us Weekly. “The trick is to pay attention to that and push your plate away.”
