Weight loss: EastEnders star Natalie Cassidy slimmed down by making simple change

They said: “Losing weight requires you to burn more calories than you consume, and exercise can help you do so.

“Running is a great option, as it burns more calories than most other types of exercise because it requires many different muscles to work hard together.”

Since completing the marathon, Natalie has shared updates of her enjoying long runs and it appears to be a hobby she has stuck to.

Her slimmer frame would suggest the soap star fuelled her intensive workouts with a healthy diet plan.

Natalie still runs, posting on Twitter recently: “On gloomy days like this running will make you feel so much better…!”

Natalie is not the only soap star to have lost a lot of weight in recent years.

“At its worst I used to drink two two-litre bottles of Coke a day. I know now how much sugar is in it.

“But, when you are addicted, you don’t realise how much you are getting through. In the end, it was my dad who pointed it out.”

This amounted to a whopping 800 extra calories a day.

That is enough to cause anyone to put on extra weight.

She finished the marathon in an impressive five hours and 27 minutes and documented her training in the run up to the race.

Posting on Twitter, Natalie explained she ran 18 miles in just one day as preparation.

Running can burn around 600 to 800 calories per hour which means her intensive training routine is sure to have helped her lose a few pounds.


Since the marathon, it seems Natalie has kept up the healthy habit and recently posted about her love for running.

A post on Twitter said: “On gloomy days like this running will make you feel so much better…!”

In 2018, she told Now magazine: “After playing Sonia in EastEnders for 12 years, I thought it’d be good to change my image.

“There were nights I would go out for dinner and then I’d go home and take laxatives because I didn’t want the food inside me.”

Despite struggling with her weight in the past, she has since overcome this to develop a healthy lifestyle.

She did three hour and a half work outs per week.

“And every night in front of the telly, religiously, I do 300 stomach crunches.”
