Melissa McCarthy knew that her weight was a big problem and it may eventually cause her her life. With her family as her inspiration, the "Ghostbusters" actress slowly changed her lifestyle. Melissa McCarthy has already lost a whopping 75 lbs. and she's determined to lose more! A new report revealed that the "Gilmore Girls" star credits her new slimmer figure to a specific workout regimen.

For her to achieve a healthier version of herself, Melissa McCarthy had to sweat it out. Just like any other diets, watching the portion and changing one's eating habits are certainly not enough to maintain the weight loss, so the "Gilmore Girls" star made sure to settle that concern.

It's definitely hard to stick to a workout plan, and that is why the actress hired a trainer to achieve Melissa McCarthy weight loss. For her to keep motivated, Melissa McCarthy's trainer chose a routine that the "Ghostbusters" actress enjoys and will give her better results at the same time, as reported by Foods 4 Better Health. These workouts include high-intensity interval-training or better known as HIIT.

There will be days that Melissa McCarthy will do 30 minutes of martial arts, 10 minutes on the rowing machine, wall sits, jumping jacks, body weight squats, reverse crunches, and lower back extensions. In order for the "ghostbusters" actress to not get bored in doing same exact routine all the time, in some days she will do 10 minutes burpees and skipped ropes.

To maintain Melissa McCarthy weight loss and to keep losing more, the "Gilmore Girls" star has to keep her body moving and have an exercise regimen. It's been previously reported that Melissa McCarthy weight loss is a result of eating healthier and drinking a green smoothie (see recipe here) to help her shed off the pounds.
