The Nanny star ignored doctors' advice to take new medications in a bid to solve her flagging energy level problems, and instead changed her diet.
She launched a health overhaul, cutting out alcohol, animal products and items containing gluten from her diet - and it did wonders for her body.
Showing off her new look on U.S. TV host Wendy Williams' show on Thursday (13Sep12), she said, "It was tough going, I wasn't able to knock off that kind of weight in years. I just decided that I wasn't feeling well... and I went to a bunch of doctors, and everybody had different prescriptions for all my symptoms and I just decided, 'No more, I'm gonna do alternative. I'm gonna to switch up my act, eat differently, clean up my act.'
"And so I cut out alcohol... so that went, and I became gluten-free and vegan."
And Drescher reveals she has even noticed a difference in her complexion: "I am getting a lot of compliments on my skin and how good I look and I really think it has to do with the no drinking. It (alcohol) dries your skin out a lot."
