You might know Debra Messing as the quirky fashion designer from Will and Grace or the tough detective from The Mysteries of Laura, but behind the cameras, she’s a caring mother with a passion for health and fitness, just like the rest of us!
Since she stays in such great shape, it’s no surprise that she maintains a strictly clean diet. However, while chatting with FirstforWomen.com, she shared quite a few useful health tips, and one of them just happens to be CoolSculpting — a new and innovative way to get rid of unwanted fat.
The actress practically beamed while talking about her new partnership with the brand, which aims to help people eliminate fat bulges in areas like their stomach, arms, and legs. These non-surgical treatments (which are completely safe and FDA-approved) involve freezing your fat cells with an applicator, and once those fat cells are frozen solid, they die and get removed from the body naturally.

“The thing that I love about CoolSculpting is that it's completely noninvasive. There's no downtime. I was able to literally just walk into the dermatologist's office, sit in a chair, they put the machine on me, I did my work on my phone. Thirty-five minutes later they came in, ‘you're done!’” Debra exclusively told us. Color us impressed!

The process usually takes three months, but Debra revealed that she has been on these treatments for over a month and a half — and she has already seen some results! But while looking fit is very important to her, she explained that CoolSculpting is much more than just a shortcut for looking slimmer.
“For me it feels empowering. It's not about becoming perfect, it's not about trying to reach some sort of idealized idea of beauty, it's about: I like myself, I embrace myself, I just want to be a slightly better version of myself. I want to be able to stand tall and be confident and feel good in my clothes," she revealed.
While her CoolSculpting treatments have already started to work wonders for her body, part of the credit still goes to her healthy diet. And lucky for us, she shared some amazing advice for how to stay in shape!

Start your day with protein.
"[You can] make poached eggs or make scrambled eggs, start your day with eggs and it’ll start you off on the right foot. You won’t eat as much later on in the day if you have a good protein in the morning," the actress said.
