When Drew Carey appeared on the red carpet en route to a party in Los Angeles on Wednesday, jaws dropped. Â The actor and host of CBS’s “The Price Is Right” has always been on the heavy side, but thanks to the help of what Carey told People Magazine was a “strict lo-carb diet”, he’s a shocking 80 lbs thinner than he was just months ago.
“No carbs,” Carey told People. “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.”
Carey was previously diagnosed with Type II Diabetes, which is a type of diabetes that is developed later in life, mainly due to lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise and weight. Â Thanks to the help of his massive weight loss, Carey is now free of any symptoms associated with Type II Diabetes, and is medication-free.
