The 52-year-old former host of The Drew Carey Show explained to reporters that he got tired of being fat and seeing himself on camera. So he embarked on a plan to cut the junk from his diet and begin a daily exercise routine. After losing nearly 80 pounds in about six months, Carey also cured himself of his type-2 diabetes.
“I’m not diabetic anymore. No medication needed,” he explained.
By sticking primarily to egg whites, yogurt, fruit, lean meats and water, Carey was able to drop from a size 44 pants to a 33-34.
“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,” he said.
