Sandra Lee: Andrew Cuomo ‘still my guy’ despite breakup

Sandra Lee is tackling her new year’s resolution head-on.

The TV chef and Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s ex-girlfriend announced she began a cleanse in late December after gaining 30 pounds in the last year.

“With Christmas in a bag in my backseat today really starts the first day of the working New Year. So today I’m going to start a cleanse,” Lee, 54, posted alongside an Instagram selfie on Monday.

“My sister Kimber does them all the time. Normally loses up to 10 pounds on a seven day cleanse (we all know the first five as water),” she continued.

Lee added how 2020 “was not a great health year for anyone,” sans her “health hero,” Rebel Wilson, who kicked off a “year of health” journey last January.

“Personally over the last year I gained 30 pounds and weighed in at 170 two days before Christmas—None of my clothes fit and worse i feel terrible,” Lee explained. “I feel my very best at 140 pounds-I’m 5’9” that’s a good weight for me.”

Lee said she kick-started her new regime on Christmas Day, which includes “very very few carbs,” and no red meat or alcohol.

“Lots of vegetables and berries, banana, watermelon, avocado which I actually eat for dinner, fermented food think sauerkraut (with Dijon mustard) and I just love pickles, definitely eggs, soups with low sodium broth‘s,” she detailed. “Coffee, tea (to get back to me-I need my caffeine) oh and lots of water ……….A LOT!”

Lee said her new regimen is working, revealing she’s lost 10 pounds since Dec. 25. Lee has also been taking a Vitamin C energy booster, in addition to other vitamins she has been consuming since March.

“My energy isn’t super awesome though (1250 calories a day is tough-I LIKE TO EAT!),” Lee added. “Tomorrow or the next day I’m going to go get a vitamin IV and hope that that helps a little bit.”

2020 was a year of change for Lee, as she sold and moved out of the Westchester home she once shared with Cuomo.

The pair announced their split in September 2019, although Page Six exclusively reported in May of that year they were no longer living together.

In December, Lee said she cried “all the way” from New York to California after packing up the former couple’s Lily Pond residence.

“I think I have just been stuffing it for so long that I am done. It’s all been too much-the last 6 years have just been too much..please God let 2021 be good for us all..,” she shared at the time.

Early on in the pandemic, Lee said in a New York Times profile she would wake up and watch Cuomo’s daily press briefings. “He’s still my guy,” she said, adding, “Neither one of us, well, as far as I know, has had a date.”
