Rachael Ray – Weight Management – What are Her Secrets?
Rachael Ray is a popular American Television celebrity cook. She has written many books on cooking and is a host of her own show, Rachael Ray. Her weight has fluctuated frequently and has been a major talking point in leading news publications such as The Daily Mail. While there are no secrets to weight gain, her secrets to weight loss include having a disciplined workout routine.
Rachael Ray did not share on her physical work out specifics. But she revealed that simple exercises like jogging and running work well for her. At one point, she ran at least 3 miles a day. She also believes that refreshing her mind is important as it helps her to focus on things to do during the week.
Let’s see how Rachael Ray’s weight fluctuated throughout the years. Though it is near impossible to get her actual weight in each snapshot, you can tell if she has increased or decreased her weight in the photos.
Tasting food regularly on her TV show does not help Rachael Ray lose weight at all. It is not easy for her to maintain her curvy figure. The photo above shows Rachael Ray in her slim self in Year 2004. She is pictured in a Book signing event at Sur La Table in San Jose, California.
In 2005, Rachael Ray had her big break when she agreed to host a show named after her, Rachael Ray. This was the time when Rachael Ray’s culinary skills were put in the spotlight. Rachael Ray still had a rather slim figure at that time. Rachael Ray is pictured above attending the National Launch of Every Day at Cafe St. Barths in New York City. The picture was taken in October 2015. Her slim forearms show that she was in pretty good shape then.
By 2006, everything was falling in the right places for Rachael Ray. Other than gaining the spokeswoman deal for Nabisco Crackers, Rachael Ray also gained some weight. The photo above shows Rachael Ray attending the Entertainment Weekly’s “Must List” Party in June 2006. Her arms looked significantly thicker than a year ago.
In 2008, a lot of positive things were happening for Rachael Ray. Her TV series Rachael’s Vacation debuted on the Food Network and her line of pet food, Nutrish, was launched. Perhaps things were going too well for Rachael Ray. It led to her weight gain. In the photo above, she is seen attending Rachel Carson Award event at Skylight Studios, New York City. Her widening shoulders reflected increased prosperity and wealth.

Rachael Ray was also interviewed by TIME in 2008:
Compare that to her latest look on her show:
Forbes Magazine named Rachael Ray as the 79th Most Powerful Celebrity in the World in 2009. Rachael Ray was building on her success quickly. It was the year when she won an Emmy for Daytime Best Outstanding Talk Show. In the photo above, she is pictured holding her award at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. Her weight gain shows no signs of subsiding.
There was another piece of news that Rachael Ray lost two jeans sizes! The article was featured in People Magazine. Below is the article showing Rachael Ray’s weight loss. Check it out:
Being named by Forbes Magazine as one of the most Powerful Celebrities in the world, Rachael Ray attended Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the world gala in 2010. The event was held at the Lincoln Center in New York City. Here, she is dressed in an all red dress (stunning dress), with her trademarked wide smile. She looked like an incredibly happy person all her time. There were still no signs of weight loss.
In 2011, Rachael Ray was again nominated for the Daytime Emmy Award for Best Outstanding Talk Host. Here she is pictured in a black and blue dress. Lifting her arms did not do much to hide the fact that she was gaining weight year on year. Nice eye makeup though!
By 2012, there was huge suspicion that too many Emmy nominations actually made you look fat. Rachael Ray still looked chubby. Someone must have told her that she looked better in sleeveless tops. Here she is attending The Mario Batali Foundation Inaugural Honors Dinner in New York City. Ray looks younger in this photo, probably due to her toned down makeup. Hey sometimes less is more!
Ok, so in 2013, someone finally advised her against those sleeveless tops. Here, she is pictured attending the 2013 Food Bank For New York City Can Do Awards. Her body shape has not changed much but she did look slimmer than in 2012. Probably it was due to her covering up her arms. One thing though, she did not look like her age of 45 at that time.
Besides her love for cooking, Rachael Ray always had a soft spot for animals. She founded Rachael’s Rescue to help at-risk animals. Her willingness to set up Rachael’s Rescue shows Ray had a big heart. Here in the photo above, she was pictured in 2014 to help launch the “Shelter Cats Are Beautiful” campaign. Her weight still seems the same for now.
Fast forward to year 2016. Here, she attends the Meredith Corporation Brandfront Presentation in New York City. She seemed to gain more weight as reflected in her fuller cheeks and chin. Her black jacket could not hide her enormous size. She is beginning to age now.
Here she is on her way to attend “ The Late Show With Stephon Colbert” Her contagious smile just makes her look much younger than actual age. She also looked smaller in size than usual.
Overall, Rachael Ray has managed to look almost 10 years younger. Now at age 48, she does not look old at all. With the good ratings on her show, you can be sure that Rachael Ray will continue to perform. But some fans hope for a much slimmer Rachael Ray. Till that day comes, Rachael Ray will always remain a chubby girl .
