What Drew Carey Can Teach You About Fat Loss!

“Damn! What happened to Drew Carey!?”

That was my reaction when I opened my RSS reader this morning and clicked on Jimmy Moore’s ‘Livin La Vida Low Carb‘ blog.

Drew got thin!

I don’t watch a lot of TV so I haven’t seen the guy in a long time.

Not only did he lose the weight but he has been able to get off his diabetes medications. Drew says:

“I’m not diabetic anymore. No medication needed.”

How did he do it?

In his own words…

“No carbs,” Carey noted. “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.”

While zero carbs is not necessary, he obviously found it something he could stick to (the man must love his meat!).

Success breeds success. Like I see time and time again with those skeptical of the MANS diet or even Total Six Pack Abs; once they begin the program and see results quite quickly, sticking to it becomes a pleasure!

“I was sick of being fat on the camera. Really, I just got sick of it,” he confided. “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.”

Interestingly, according to Jimmy Moore in his post:

“Courtney Thorne-Smith revealed in a September 2009 interview that low-carb is how people in the industry eat and that it’s pretty common knowledge amongst industry insiders what you need to do to slim down is restrict your carbohydrate intake to primarily nuts, cheeses, meats, and non-starchy veggies. The problem is that while this way of eating is considered normal within the inner circles of the celebrity world, very few of them are out there talking about how the low-carb lifestyle changed their life.”

Stay Healthy!

    he’s lost the weight but he’s got excess skin on his face now, and more wrinkles so he looks older.
    maybe its best not to get fat in the first place :S

    Wow congrats to Drew Carey.

    Honestly, if the man is off his medication for diabetes, I say good for him!

    Yeah, that “after” picture of him is pretty terrible, but he’s obviously healthier this way. I’m sitting here at the moment eating a burger patty with cheese and mustard, deciding to start cutting carbs myself again. Had to resist the deep dish Chicago pizza in the fridge.

    Good story Mark. I like the motivational stuff.

    Hey I have some old 13% BF pictures, and I am now 7% and cut up. Do you have a before and after pics section of your site I can submit to?

    I followed TSPA pretty closely, but…I realized later that I was using an older version of the book and you actually recommended some sort of higher carb cycle in the newer version, but for the most part, I would say I followed the ideology taught in TSPA.

    I lost over 35kg’s over 10 years ago and have kept the off – by eating low GI carbs. Quantity is definitely key and is part of “Glycemic Load” – the amount of carbs you take on in a day. “No carbs” is not sustainable. High protein, high fat diets also give you bad breath along with other potential health problems. Let’s see what Drew looks like in a few years time.

    One of my issues is that when I begin to lower carb intake I tend to get migraines. I have tried to research this but I could not find a lot out there on it. I am really intrigued by your diet plans but after a few migraines I do what I can to avoid them. Any ideas?
