Drew Carey has recently lost around 80 pounds. However his weightloss did more than drop 80 pounds from his once more than ample frame: it also eliminated his type 2 diabetes. According to the host of The Price Is Right, he told People “I’m not diabetic anymore. No medication needed.” And that’s what happened to Drew Carey: his weight loss not only allowed him to get rid of his size 44 pants and slip into a size 33-34, it also let him get rid of his medications. He was quoted in a newspaper article, “Once I started dropping a couple pant sizes, then it was easy ‘cause once you see the results, then you don’t wanna stop.”
Drew Carey’s weight loss may inspire others to try losing weight the old-fashioned way: watching what you eat and exercising hard. Besides the possibility of eliminating type 2 diabetes, weight loss can also reduce blood pressure, lower your risk of heart disease, improve cholesterol levels, lighten stress on joints such as hips, knees, and ankles, and do wonders for your self-esteem.
Well done Drew…and hopefully he can be inspiration for others to take action!
