Drew Carey has recently lost 80 pounds and he looks amazing! He talked about the reason why when he attended the CBS, Showtime and The CW TCA Party in Beverly Hills last night:
“It sucks being fat, you know,”I was diabetic with Type-2 diabetes
And now thanks to his very strict diet and exercise program:
“I’m not diabetic anymore. No medication needed.”
That’s incredible, isn’t it? So how exactly did he do it:
“No carbs,” Carey says. “I have cheated a couple times, but basically no carbs, not even a cracker. No bread at all. No pizza, nothing. No corn, no beans, no starches of any kind. Egg whites in the morning or like, Greek yogurt, cut some fruit.”
He snacks on fruit, and for dinner he’ll have grilled chicken and steamed vegetables and water. “I don’t drink anything but water,” he says. “No coffee, no tea, no soda.”
Equally important, he says, is keeping up his workouts. His secret: “Lots of cardio. About 45 minutes of cardio, at least 45 minutes of cardio. I’ve been kind of lazy like lately, so I’m not doing it 6 days a week, but I will be for this next month.”
Oh man that is a brutal diet plan. I can see why the weight would just fall off with eating like that, but that’s a difficult one.
He’s not done with losing weight though. Drew wants to lose another 10 pounds:
“I like being skinny,” says Carey. “I was sick of being fat on the camera. Really, I just got sick of it. Once I started losing weight, again, like once I started dropping a couple pant sizes, then it was easy ’cause once you see the results, then you don’t wanna stop.”
Good for him! What do you do to stay in shape and healthy?
