Inside ’90 Day Fiance’ Star Tiffany Franco’s Weight Loss Transformation and Gastric Surgery Journey

Tiffany Franco Smith from 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way proudly revealed she shed 60 pounds so far after undergoing weight loss surgery.

The TLC star told In Touch exclusively in November 20201 that she “feels amazing” after losing the weight. 

When it comes to her diet, Tiffany said she “just drink protein shakes. I try to get 60 to 70 grams of protein a day.”

“I try to get in as much fluid as possible,” she added. “Water is best! And most importantly my vitamins!! Taking tons of vitamins.”

In June 2021, the TV personality told fans she opted to get a gastric sleeve procedure to take a “step toward a happier and healthier me.” Tiffany said she had previously taken a break from her fitness journey amid the coronavirus pandemic and relationship drama with her husband, Ronald Smith. Even though the reality TV couple did end up splitting for a brief period in May, they reconciled before seemingly breaking up for a third time in early July.

However, Tiffany took to Instagram to address the “Ronald situation for the last time,” saying that they “both apologized for our behavior” and things “are gonna be on lock from now on for the kids.”

Prior to her decision to go under the knife, the New Jersey native was exercising and dieting to get to her goal weight following the birth of her and Ronald’s daughter, Carley Rose, in July 2019.

Viewers watched the TLC star find love with her husband during a trip to South Africa, and now they have a beautiful family of four, including her son, Daniel, from a past relationship. Not only did she document her pregnancy on social media, but the TV personality was also detailing her journey to get into shape.

In January 2020, the 90 Day Fiancé: Self-Quarantined alum gave fans a glimpse at her physique in a throwback photo taken shortly after she gave birth to her daughter. At the time, she also posted a new portrait alongside it to illustrate her progress. 

When one of her followers threw shade, the reality star fired back with a heartfelt message about the importance of self-love.

 “How does it make you feel when I say I’m in love with me? And that I enjoy myself and looking at myself?” Tiffany replied, garnering support from her fans. “Does it cause you to feel angry? If it dies you probably hate yourself and have a deep desire to love yourself. However, I advise you to not project that onto me. What you feel towards yourself has nothing to do with me.”

In February, Tiffany spilled tea (quite literally) about her weight loss journey. “I’m so, so, so excited to start sharing my progress with you guys and how far I’ve come on my feel good journey,” she wrote on Instagram. “I shared a couple things; some are still a secret but one thing that I CAN share and I’m so grateful I’ve found is my @teamiblends 30-day detox. This has truly made me feel on track with my fitness and wellness goals, even just keeping me accountable sometimes.”

In March 2020, the 90 Day Fiancé alum gave an update about her relationship status, confirming she and Ronald had not “separated” or “divorced” after some drama spilled over onto social media. Although they previously went through a rough patch in their marriage that resulted in a short-lived split in January 2020 and again in May 2021, it appears they have worked through their differences again.
