How Did Drew Carey Lose Weight?
In Parade Magazine Drew Carey opened up about his amazing weight loss and overall transformation of his health. Drew lost over 85 pounds and hopes to lose even more! He started out at over 260 pounds and now weighs less than 170. So, exactly how did Drew Carey lose weight?
Cary lost almost 100 pounds by sticking to a very strict ‘no carb’ diet. He said he did cheat a couple of times but essentially ate no carbs which means he gave up bread, crackers, pizza, etc. He also gave up starches, beans, and corn. Carey said he started with egg whites in the morning and/or fruit with Greek Yogurt. He said he also drinks nothing but water and follows a very strict cardio routine.
The health benefits have been wonderful for him and he says he no longer suffers from Type II diabetes.
“I’m not diabetic anymore. No medication needed.” Carey said. “I like being skinny. I was sick of being fat on camera. Really, I just got sick of it.”
A lot of people email me asking “how did Drew Carey burn fat?” It had to do with his motivations, which were very powerful ones. Other than being “sick” of looking fat on television Carey said he would pant when trying to keep up with his fiance’s five-year-old son. Carey said that the boy was his main inspiration: “I couldn’t keep up with him.” Carey admits that within a few minutes of playing with the boy he would be sweating and out of breath. “I’d be like, ‘Connor, I can’t’ and he’d say, ‘C’mon Dad!’ That was a terrible feeling. I thought, I’m never going to see him graduate high school.”
After working hard and losing all his weight he did suffer one particular setback/realization that he can’t go back to eating like he used to. On August 15, Carey tweeted: “Just ran my first 10K in almost 25 years. Sub-60. Then I had my first ice cream since January:)”
But he didn’t stop there. After the ice cream he ate an entire pepperoni pizza followed by a cupcake. The next day he ate another pizza which made him feel sick (and heavier by a few pounds). He said that this relapse was a valuable lesson which he would remind himself of from now on by posting a not above the mirror in his bathroom. The message says: “Eating crappy food is not a reward—it’s a punishment.” Amen.
