DOG the Bounty Hunter revealed that he has dropped 20 lbs.
The TV personality explained that his weight loss is due to a new diet his fiancée Francie Frane put him on that consists of “grass and dandelions.”
While appearing on The Dr. Oz Show, host Dr. Mehmet Oz asked Dog – whose real name is Duane Chapman – if it’s true that Francie has got him to quit cursing, stop smoking and start attending church almost every week.
The 67-year-old confirmed Francie’s positive impact on him and added that she also helped him drop some weight.
He told the host: “My diet- I’ve lost up to 20 lbs.
“I don’t really like to eat what she eats. It’s grass, it’s dandelions, but I hold my breath and get water and ice and eat it and drink it.”
The diet has not only changed his physical appearance, but also his mindset.
He added: “I can tell a lot of difference in my attitude, even.”
Dog and Francie became engaged just 11 months after his late wife Beth passed away.
Beth died in late June 2019 at the age of 51 after losing her battle with throat cancer.
The Sun exclusively broke the news of Dog and Francie’s engagement in May.
Dog and Francie recently gushed about each other during an interview with DailyMailTV.
The reality star told the outlet about their relationship: “I’m a widower and she’s a widow so the connection started there.
“I spoke with her because her husband passed six months before my former wife and she had been through stuff, so I was asking for advice and all the sudden cupid shot me.”
Dog added: “We didn’t expect it.”
Francie also teased their upcoming wedding ceremony during the interview.
She said: “We are talking about a few different dates and we are starting to plan. It’s a little difficult with all of the COVID going on or trying to have more than 20 people in a place.”
The 51-year-old jokingly added: “Duane has that many kids!”
He is the father of twelve kids.
While Dog previously said that he would never remarry following Beth’s passing, he explained why he changed his mind after meeting Francie.
He said: “What changed was I had no idea I was going to meet someone like Francie because a rancher was not in my black book.
“And when I did, she put down some rules – like you must go to church, you got to start eating grass and weeds, and you got to quit smoking, and you got to quit using the A-word every other sentence. And you just gotta get your heart rate because maybe someday you’ll be gone.”
