Drew Carey, the infamous overweight funny man, past host of Whose Line is it Anyway and star of the situation comedy that bore his name, The Drew Carey Show and current host of ThePrice is Right, has been working on his appearance by losing seventy pounds in just ninety days. That is almost a pound a day and the star is showing off his new svelte figure on daytime television.
The new season of the Price is Right has just begun but there have been some dramatic changes that have nothing to do with the hot girls modeling in front of prizes or the overexcited contestants who are trying to win the showcase showdown. No, the biggest change, which should actually be called the smallest change, is in that of the host Drew Carey and his dramatic weight loss. Many tuned in to see if the rumors were true and to see how great Carey looks now that is seventy pounds lighter.
So how did Mr. Carey lose almost a pound a day and why did he make the decision at the age of 52 when he has been chunky nearly his entire public career? He has been working out as well as using a customized formula that is used to help curb the appetite. This concoction was thought up by a nutritionist and is completely healthy. He is also working with a personal trainer who is showing him how to work out by running and checking on the optimum heart rate while working out.
It seems as though health is the biggest reason why he decided to lose the weight. He is now engaged to a woman who has a 5 year old son and he said that he wants to be healthy enough to see him through college. This is commendable for a man who has spent a good portion of his life overweight. It is much easier to lose weight when one is doing it for health reasons and not just to be skinny.
In this day and age of fast weight loss through surgery, it is nice to see a celebrity that is making the change through diet and exercise. Drew Carey is an inspiration to those who are attempting to drop the weight and who want to be healthier without having to resort to surgery to do so. More people should take a page from his book and just cut down on their food and increase their exercise.
