The Price is Right host Drew Carey’s is opening up about his remarkable weight loss after losing nearly 100 pounds.

For over a decade Drew has been the host of the popular game show. The comedian reflecting on his career over the years said:

I thought I was doing OK, but I’m not nearly as loose and feeling in control as I do now. I really feel like I can do anything and I know everything like the back of my hand. I can just walk anywhere on stage and they’ll follow me and before I felt like I needed to stand at a certain place and say a certain thing and I was worried about screwing it up.

Drew Carey’s weight loss

The Price is Right host claimed being big was a burden and decided he needed to make some serious changes to stay fit and healthy. He admitted he was inspired by the son of his ex-fiancée.

Following a strict regime, Carey lost 80 lbs, cutting out carbohydrates completely and hitting the gym religiously. The comedian was able to achieve this despite having Type-2 diabetes and heart issues.

Drew opening up about his remarkable weight loss said:

I like being skinny. I was sick of being fat on the camera. Really, I just got sick of it. Once I started losing weight, again, like once I started dropping a couple of pant sizes, then it was easy ’cause once you see the results, then you don’t wanna stop.

However, the diet turned the host into a happy, healthy, and strong man. Not only did he shed some pounds, but he is also no longer diabetic and doesn’t pant when running.

Not the first attempt at weight loss

Back in 2011, Drew tried to lose weight, but the result wasn't so impressive. While working on The Drew Carey Show, one of the comedian’s artery was discovered to be clogged after experiencing chest pains.

He tried to curb his appetite for a while after a procedure was performed. However, he gained weight by the time he was made the host of the Price is Right.

We, too, can’t help but admire Drew Carey. He now eats right and is off of his medication for type-2 diabetes.
