John Goodman’s 100-pound weight loss was due to a Mediterranean diet and walking workouts on the treadmill.
Goodman, 63, first showed off his shocking weight loss in 2010. The 6-foot-2 John, who once weighed over 400 pounds, has since shed even more weight since then based on his before-and-after photos.
John’s weight loss secrets were an alcohol-free Mediterranean-style diet that focuses on fish, nuts, olive oil, vegetables and fruit, Examiner reported.
The Mediterranean diet, which is based on the traditional eating plans of the Italian, Greek and Spanish cultures, prevents heart disease and promotes natural weight loss, said Michael Ozner, author of The Complete Mediterranean Diet.
Studies show the Mediterranean diet — which emphasizes healthy fats such as olive oil and avocados, vegetables, lean proteins, beans, nuts, and seed — also promotes longevity, and prevents high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s.
Goodman quit drinking and smoking in 2007, and works out 6 days a week with fitness coach Mackie Shilstone, as Celebrity Health & Fitness previously reported.
In 2011, John told David Letterman his weight used to fluctuate a lot, but he’s healthier because he exercises “a lot.”
Not surprisingly, Goodman — who looks years younger — is thrilled with his weight loss. “I just ordered some nice slacks,” John said. “They’re too big now.”
