Celebrities really know when to show off their body transformation and Melissa McCarthy did just that at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.

The actress who has gone into low carb diet for the past year shocked many people at the red carpet of the event. McCarthy is said to have lost 50lbs and flaunted her astonishing weight loss in a beautiful dress she designed on her own, the Examiner reported.

The actress revealed that her motivation to lose weight was her daughters. She said that she does not have any intention to lose weight and look sexy so that she can wear a bikini and have candid paparazzi shots at the beach. McCarthy just wanted to stay healthy for her kids.

McCarthy, who was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading role last Sunday at the Golden Globes, has had problems with her weight almost all her life. The "Spy" actress said that she was struggling with her weight, trying out many unsuccessful diet methods.

With the success of her new low carb diet, fans may soon find the actress in a sexy bikini.

According to a report by Science Recorder, low carb diet is far more effective in losing weight compared to low fat diet. It also helps to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

According to the author of "Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet," any form of low carb diet helps rapid weight loss because it encourages the body to convert fat into energy, Celebrity Health Fitness reported.

Many people have already experienced success using low carb diet and experts are saying that it promotes a healthy way of losing weight. They said that the old notion of "Eat less, exercise more doesn't work" any more.

According to a report by Inquisitr, the actress also revealed her martial arts fitness regimen that she started as a preparation for her role in the movie, "Spy."

"The second I knew I was doing the movie, I started training with an amazing martial arts instructor," she said.

Meanwhile, McCarthy expressed her intention to become a fashion designer. She said that it has always been her dream since she was a kid to create clothes for women.

"I have experience dressing me as a 6, a 12 and more," the actress said. "When you go above a size 12, you don't lose your love of fashion. I always said, 'Why can't I find great stuff?'"
