So, Valerie Bertinelli Didn’t Gain 50 Lbs After Her Broken Foot


Our office continues to be open to all new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. If you prefer to wait in your car, just give us a call and we will call or text you when we are ready to bring you straight into a treatment room. Our entire staff is wearing masks and we encourage you to do the same.

For those patients who cannot or still wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

Valerie Bertinelli is trying to lose the weight she gained with a broken footA few weeks ago, I blogged about how “Hot in Cleveland” star Valerie Bertinelli admitted to gaining some weight after she broke her foot because she had to stop working out.

After making this admission, the story got a lot of media attention, probably because Bertinelli has been a Jenny Craig spokeswoman, losing 40lbs with the company back in 2012.

Well, maybe she’s worried about losing her spokesperson gig or maybe she’s just sick of people speculating about her weight, but Valerie decided to set the record straight this week, clarifying that, “Contrary to published reports, I did not gain 50 pounds when I broke my foot, I gained like 12 to 15, I’ve already taken off 5 of them.”

Apparently, now that her injury has healed, she’s hitting the gym again, working out on the elliptical and taking boot camp classes. While things are heading in the right direction for Bertinelli, the actress did say that she still hasn’t been able to return to running.

For anyone who has broken a foot, the length of the recovery process is a major focal point. In my Houston podiatrist office, I do my best to limit the amount of time a broken toe, foot or ankle will keep you out of commission, without sacrificing your recovery, of course. If, at any point you have questions about how you can stay active and what exercises are safe for you to do after you have healed, I am always available to help. Together, we can make the best out of a bad situation and help you avoid a negative broken foot experience like Valerie Bertinelli’s.
