Raven-Symoné Lost 40 Lbs. After She 'Kicked Sugar' with 'Help and Guidance' from Wife Miranda

"I want to be here for her as long as I can," Raven-Symoné said of her wife, Miranda Pearman-Maday, as she opened up about her weight loss

Raven-Symoné is opening up about the motivation behind her 40-lb. weight loss.

While on The View Wednesday, the singer and actress, 36, spoke about her health journey.

"What made me want to change was her," she said, pointing to wife Miranda Pearman-Maday, 34, who was also a guest on the daytime show.

"I want to be here for her as long as I can. I found out some numbers at the doctor that were not pleasant for someone in my age bracket or any age bracket, to be honest with you."

She added that with Pearman-Maday's "help, and guidance, and love, and fantastic cooking skills — which everyone here knows — she helped me kick sugar."

"I say kick sugar because it is an addictive drug," Symoné continued.

"I was addicted to it in wheat form, in regular form, and it's out of my system," she said, before joking that she also consumed sugar "in fish filet with an extra packet of ketchup — two on Fridays!"

Symoné noted that, while she still enjoys cookies, "they are keto-friendly. And I have whole food. And I actually talk to someone here at The View every day about fasting because I'm also an intermittent faster and an extended faster as well."

After co-host Joy Behar pointed out, "You lost a lot of weight," Symoné was reluctant at first to share just how much. However, she said, "I'll tell you the numbers. When I ended this show [in 2016] and I started Raven's Home, I was 210 lbs. I am now 170."

She added that she reached the mark with "no exercise."

Symoné first shared her weight loss journey in May, telling fans she had lost 28 lbs.

"Pounds down, pounds down. Check out the chin," she said during an Instagram Live session with Pearman-Maday. "You see that chin? If you all watchRaven's Homeliterally right now, and then come on this live and see this joint, I got a whole different face going on. It's a whole pounds-down journey."

"Just so you guys know, I am 28 lbs. down. I lost a s--- ton of weight," Symoné added.

"You're incredible honey. You're doing so good," Pearman-Maday told the Cheetah Girls alum.

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
