Chaz Bono’s 2013 has gotten off to a healthy start!
He’s now upped his goal to dropping a total of 80 lbs.
“I’ve been sticking to a really strict diet,” he tells PEOPLE. “It’s not any type of starvation thing. I’m just cutting out a lot of stuff and eating primarily protein and vegetables and fruit.”
