How Zach Galifianakis Lost All That Weight
The words ‘Zach Galifianakis’ and ‘weight loss’ appearing in the same sentence seems more like the concept for a funny movie, but it is true: the actor and comedian has recently dropped over 50 pounds and has surprised many in Tinseltown and around the world with his new, clean-cut appearance. Yes, this is the same actor whose career has been made playing fat guys in comedy movies. This is the reason why so many people have been surprised and even more people are lining up to ask him how he did it. After all, losing 50 to 60 pounds in under a year is no mean achievement.
When asked about the secret to his incredible weight loss, the funny man replied as one would expect him to: sarcastically, commenting that he is dying of a disease that has caused him to lose weight. Well, it is anything but, as Galifianakis looks healthier than ever. As it turns out, he did reveal the secret to weight loss, and it was following a diet free of alcohol. The actor stated that he has been abstaining from alcohol for many months now and ensures the food he eats does not contain any, either. This is almost the only thing he has done that is even remotely healthy, yet he has managed to shed fat—a lot of it!
The only other change he has made to his lifestyle is walking more. Experts have suggested for a long time that walking is the best exercise for losing weight since it requires little motivation and no equipment. It appears as though Zach Galifianakis has taken this to the next level by proving that walking works for weight loss. Yet some diet experts have commented on his weight loss and stated that it is cutting out alcohol from his diet that has enabled Zach to lose so much weight so quickly.
The interesting part is that Zach Galifianakis is not the first celebrity to lose weight by cutting alcohol consumption from their lifestyle. Country music star Tim McGraw was the first. He managed to drop 40 pounds by simply abstaining from alcohol. Hence, it comes as no surprise that the star of The Hangover series and riding on the acclaim of his newest release, Birdman, has managed to lose weight by simply not drinking.
This comes as good news for people who are overweight and drink a lot. Stay away from alcohol and you might be able to lose the flab, just as Zach did.
