THE VIEW host Ana Navarro has revealed she checked into a “fat farm” as she spoke openly about her seven-month-long weight loss journey.
The political strategist detailed her increased focus on health while responding to a fan question on Instagram Thursday.
In the comment section of a recent post, the fan asked: “I want to know how you are losing weight so gracefully.”
Ana, 51, very honestly, replied: “Went for a week to a fat-farm, exercise and wellness spa – @rancholapuerta – in Baja last August for a drastic reboot.
A one-week stay at the “family-owned and operated” Racho La Pureta resort starts at about $5,000 and can cost upwards of $7,500.
The experince appears to be well worth the price of admission as the The View host revealed: “I came back 6 lbs lighter and determined to get healthier.”
Ana then admitted: “I did zero exercise during quarantine and did a lot of food and booze instagrams instead.”
She then wrote: “I stopped all that,” punctuated with a “laugh-till-you cry face” emoji.
The 51-year-old TV star continued to detail her lifestayle change, writing: “Back home, I got a trainer. Joined @clubpilates in NY and Miami. Hired a pickle-ball coach. Got my closest friends to join. I try to play at least twice a week.
“Got medical and nutritional help and supervision. Started eating the things we all know are good for us, many more vegetables, fruits, grains, fish.”

Ana provided the curious fan with the hard truth about weight loss as she admitted: “It’s not been over-night. It’s been a gradual 7 month, and counting, process. It’s a daily challenge.
“I went to Vegas a couple weeks ago, and gained 2 lbs in 2 days. Too much temptation in too close a proximity.”
She concluded by stating: “The struggle is real and endless.”
KEEPING IT REAL
On Saturday, Ana continued the open dialogue with her fans as provided her Instagram followrs with an another weight loss update.
The morning show host shared a photo of herself in the gym with the caption: “Between travel and other crazy stuff going on right now, I hadn’t done Pilates in three weeks.”
She continued: “Dragged myself back today. The class kicked my ass. Moral of the story: in life, we’re all gonna fall off the wagon every now and then.
“It’s ok. Don’t beat yourself up and just try to get yourself back on, little by little.”
Ana then took a moment to give her fans valuable advice on working out, writing” About pilates. I don’t like exercise. The trick is finding something you like -or at least, don’t hate doing.”

She then exclaimed: “And look how beautiful this dress is. Shonda, you’re onto something, girl!”
