Ricki Lake - Ricki Lake faints from weight-loss

Ricki Lake fainted because she lost so much weight.

The talk show host - who weighed 19 stone at her heaviest - dramatically lost more than half her weight, cutting down to eight stone in an unhealthy manner, causing her to be hospitalised.

She said: ''I was fainting and once had to be hospitalised with an IV drip. I took it to an extreme. It wasn't a size I could maintain. My goal weight is a healthy 10 stone now.''

Although she has achieved her goal weight, the 44-year-old star says she hasn't conquered her battle with her weight.

She told Now magazine: ''I wouldn't say I've conquered it. I still battle with it and always will. Doing 'Dancing with the Stars' in 2011 got me in amazing shape - the best of my life - and now I'm at a healthy weight. I'm not obese anymore. I was enormous, so I've got a handle on it. Would I like to lose another stone? Yes. But I'm not a big person anymore.

''I'll never be skinny. I'd rather be fit and happy than emaciated and malnourished. I have to be at peace with my body no matter what size it is.''
