Celebrities are human just like the rest of us, and often have to battle their weight just like us. Here are 50 amazing success stories of celebs who have taken on the task of weight loss and won. If this isn’t inspirational, what is?
Like his pal Jonah Hill, Rogen decided to drop some pounds. He’s been more successful than Hill in keeping them off, too. The actor implemented a routine exercise and healthier diet upon learning of his cast for the coveted role of Green Hovet, and in just a matter of seventy days was able to knock off about 30 pounds. His diet included foods packed with nutrition, such as fruit and vegetables, and also foods that scaled lower on the glycemic index.
It must be hard to be used to playing your portly body for laughs and then lose all the weight, but Galifianakis decided his health was more important than being typecast as the “fat guy.” The actor has reportedly quit drinking, which has largely attributed to his estimated fifty pound weight loss. In fact, even some of the biggest supporters of Zach Galifianakis were unable to recognize the star in his new, slimmer appearance.
The Price is Right host may not be as active in comedy as he once was, but he’s certainly more active physically, as evidenced by his weight loss. Carey dropped a whopping one hundred pounds! Rightfully so, he has been boasting about his weight loss to various editorials, even appearing on the Success January 2016 magazine to give this statement about himself: “I’m eating better, taking better care of myself. When I was doing [The Drew Carey Show], I was eating a lot of garbage, I was drinking a lot, so I had a lot of mood swings. I had diabetes.” Congratulations to Drew Carey on going from The Price is Right to this weight is right!
This famous actor is best known for his noticeable Dan Conner on Roseanne; wherein he tipped the scales of about 368 pounds in 2007. Since then, he started to cut sugar from his diet. He works six days per week and weighed down over 100 pounds. Goodman has had a long and successful acting career, and his amazing weight loss ensures that he’ll be able to continue it well into the future. His motivation for the transformation arose from a personal disgust from his previous figure. As he puts it; “I just got tired, sick and tired of looking at myself. You’re shaving in the mirror and you don’t want to look at yourself. It gets dangerous,” Goodman said.
Baldwin had gained some weight over the years, as most people do, but recently slimmed down by giving up sugar and working out. This simple shift in diet and exercise attributed to a drop in over thirty pounds for the actor, returning him to the attractive body that the actor sported previously in his role on Prelude to a Kiss (1992). Gaining so much weight from sugar came as a surprise to the otherwise healthy actor, who warns about the dangers of consuming too much of it in a daily diet.
