Wow, Drew Carey is looking skinny!

The Price is Right host has lost 80 lbs. by going on a strict diet, eliminating carbs, and hitting the gym non-stop. For him, that means at least 45 minutes of cardio a day - six days a week!

The comedian said he was diabetic with Type-2 diabetes, adding, "It sucks being fat, you know."

But since losing all those LBs since January, he says, "I'm not diabetic anymore. No medication needed."

Good for him! We're proud of you, Drew!

  1. 1

    He looks like a cancer patient here!!!!! Put some weight on man!!!



  2. 2

    HE looks AMAZING! Good for him! I'm looking forward to many more years of seeing Drew - maybe he could help out Gabby S & Aretha - never too late ladies!!



  3. 3

    I call Bullshit! He hasn't lost that much weight in 6 months without surgery.



  4. 4

    You cannot cure type 2 diabetes. You can manage it successfully, but you cannot cure it. Another tv star that talks nonsense.



  5. 5

    crystal meth is a wonder diet drug!



  6. 6

    Yeah he is looking almost too skinny!

    Any why no mention of the appetite suppressants, that were mentioned yesterday, you know the ones he said made him "forget to eat"



  7. 7

    ….now to his face?!



  8. 8

    He looks sick.



  9. 9

    I'm glad he's taking care of his health by eating healthy and working out. It's really great news that he's not diabetic anymore. However, he looks gaunt. He should eat some carbs - everything in moderation!



  10. 10

    WOWSA! That's the new Drew Carey. Good for him!



  11. 11

    Re: Jazz-hands Chaz – Yeah, I am with you. Not in six months. He might be able to lose this if he aggressively starves and exercises in a year - maybe. 80 pounds in six months? Doubtful.

    And, I am sorry, but he does not look healthy here. Yeah, he looks great and he's smiling, but he still doesn't look good.

    I hope he gets what he needs, nutritionally. Smile or no smile, he looks like he's 80 years old, and not, what, 51, 52?



  12. 12

    Made him look as OLD as Larry King.



  13. 13

    He looks a little frail or something to me. If he's healthier for it, more power to him.



  14. 14

    Good for him for losing all that weight!
    But I'm annoyed at the diabetes comment. I mean, I know its something he should be proud of, and he is lucky that he doesnt have to deal with it anymore, but stories like this in the media make people believe diabetes is just weight related.
    It's true that Type 2 is more often weight related, but sometimes it isn't and other times, when it is, its not always gone after shedding the weight.

    I'm Type 1, which has nothing do to with weight, but I still get annoyed when celebrities in the media talk about shedding pounds and not having to deal with diabetes anymore. Don't get me wrong, I think its wonderful that he lost all that weight, but stop relating it to diabetes, and making non-diabetics believe the disease is weight related.



  15. 15

    there's nothing healthy about the way he looks and man boobs are still visible under his shirt, poor bastard



  16. 16

    It really sucks that you and stupid celebrities are using the power of the media to spread false medical information.

    YOU CAN'T CURE DIABETES! He probably had a glycemic issue causing him to be insulin resistant. The symptoms can mimic diabetic symptoms and insulin resistant people are AT RISK of becoming diabetic if they don't adopt a healthy lifestyle. With proper diet and exercise you can "cure" insulin resistance but if you develop real diabetes, there is no curing that.

    THERE IS NO CURE FOR DIABETES.

    You, Drew Carey and Toni Braxton should just shut the fuck up.



  17. 17

    he still has boobs



  18. 18

    I'm going to be another person saying that diabetes cannot just go away (unless you have Gestational Diabetes during pregnancy, but then your risk of developing Type 2 skyrockets …). Some people with type 2 diabetes can control it with just diet and exercise — no pills or insulin injections needed — but most type 2 diabetics are not that lucky; type 1 requires insulin, and, as of right now, medically you can never go off of it. I'm just blown away by Drew Carey saying he doesn't have it anymore. WTF.



  19. 19

    re: Jazz-hands Chaz, goddamnjesus, MsJoanne…I have lost 87lbs as of last dr visit July 7 without cutting out carbs, no drugs or surgery of any kind and no gym. it's really quite simple. find out how many calories daily it would take to maintain the weight you are at and eat less. I cut mine in half. I did however stop eating meat last November, but i do not contribute that to the weightloss. Oh and FYI…I LOOK FABULOUS!!! (and i could give a damn if you believe or not)



  20. 20

    He shoudn't wear that hat… he looks like a grandpa… Some people look cool in hats… not him….



  21. 21

    The only cure for "overweightness" is a PERMANENT change in eating habits and emotional need for food. Very, very, few people can eat whatever they want once they get well into adulthood and remain thin. We are bombarded with massive overconsumption like double cheese burgers and large orders of fries, massive plate sizes, jumbo sized cheeto bags, etc. It used to be a typical breakfast for a man was biscutes and gravy, bacon, eggs and pancakes. But that was before he went out and plowed 10 acres. If you aren't going to be going out and doing extreme manual labor, you better watch it have a piece of whole wheat toast, a plain scrambled egg and maby a homemade healthy no extra sugar added blueberry and apple smoothie. And for lunch a plain turkey sandwich with mustard and veggies and pretty much the same for dinner.

    Re: curiousred – Ummmm, nice try curiousred, but it's type 1 diabetes that can't be cured. Type 1 is the kind that people tend to get as children and can not be cured with weight loss (or anything else at this time) and can only be managed with diet and insulin.
    Type 2 is the kind that most people get as adults due to being overweight and it is often cured by significant weight loss, like Drew.
    You shouldn't put other people down when you don't know what you're talking about.

    And, for the record, I don't like the way Drew looks now. To me he looks gaunt and ill. I thought he was hot when he was big.



  23. 23

    Gross. He looks better fat

  24. ohboy says – reply to this

    Re: curiousred – Actually, it's Type 1 (juvenile) diabetes that can't be cured. A person is born with the physical inability to produce insulin. Those with Type 2 (usually known as adult onset) have the ability to produce insulin, but amounts are not sufficient to fully regulate blood sugar levels. It is curable through weight loss (ie, exercise and diet). Awful as it is, Type 2 is being seen with alarming frequency in the pediatric demographic because of childhood obesity.



  25. 25

    That's not Drew Carey, that's his grandfather!



  26. 26

    I'm torn… good for him that he's healthier and taking charge of his weight issues, but he looks sickly to me. Maybe he needs to bulk up with weights or something - this just isn't a good look for him at all!



  27. 27

    Scary!!! He's going to look just like Larry King

  28. ohboy says – reply to this


    28

    Re: xoxoBanz – Exactly. I should have added that while Type 2 diabetes induced by an unhealthy lifestyle can be "cured" (more on that coming), sometimes the damage is irreversible. Sometimes the person has a genetic predisposition to lower insulin production. As for the cure part…it can be misleading because symptoms can return if the person steps off the treadmill and starts eating McDonald's every day again.

    I don't know why everyone thinks it's impossible to lose 80lbs in 6 months, especially for a big guy like Drew Carey. That being said, he looks really bad.



  30. 30

    WoW! He looks like shit. He looks like an old man. Guess he wants to look like Bob Barker.



  31. 31

    lazy ass gastric liar. He looks horrible and is losing his hair and isn't taking his supplements.



  32. 32

    let's see him maintain that kind of diet long term. I bet he can't do it. Instead of crash dieting like this (losing 80lbs in 6 months is NOT healthy) he should have just learned to make a lifestyle change and let the pounds come off.



  33. 33

    Re: BabyLuv – Good one!



  34. 34

    Re: MsJoanne – Well, it might be possible to lose that much on a no carb diet. I lost 1/2 lb a day on the Atkins diet w/ exercise (NOT 80 pounds though). It won't stay off though if he ever goes off of it!!!!… The ONLY way to ever lose it and keep it off is to EAT LESS and exercise!!!! I've been slender for 7 years now, so of course, I know what Drew needs to do (and how to do it)…….



  35. 35

    I bet he LOVES getting in those SKINNY JEANS! He Looks GREAT!



  36. 36

    Drew is an extremely wealthy man; I'm sure his plastic surgeons will TIGHTEN him up perfectly!



  37. 37

    nice boobs!



  38. 38

    And the countdown begins until he puts it all back on….



  39. 39

    glad he is healthy,but he now looks elderly!



  40. 40

    Cure isn't the right word for it, but Type II Diabetes is reversible. If he regains the weight, he'll probably need to go back on his diabetes medications. "Cure" would imply that the diabetes is gone for good, no matter what he eating habits become.



  41. 41

    @Curiousred — no you can't cure diabetes but you can become asymptomatic meaning that you won't need meds or blood monitoring anymore. Good for Drew!!



  42. 42

    Re: curiousred – No, there have been many causes where an obese patient will no longer need treatment for their type to 2 diabetes.



  43. 43

    Don't you need to be a certain weight to get gastric bypass? He wasn't morbidly obese you know.

    Also, I liked him better fat. It gave him personality. :)



  44. 44

    He looks HORRIFIC!!



  45. 45

    Are you sure he doesn't have aids or something? He looks terrible! Seriously. He looks like he just got out of chemo. So sad.
    That is NOT a body by exercise. Everything is off. If he lost it through exercise his posture would be different, his arms, his legs, etc. He wouldn't have the blatant giant man-boobs under his shirt. Something doesn't add up.



  46. 46

    Fantastic. He looks great! Good for him!



  47. 47

    Good for him. He does look better…much healthier…..it is going to take a while but you can see he still walks and carries his body like he is still over weight.



  48. 48

    Well good for him for losing the weight and getting healthy but I gotta say to me he looked better chubby..or he just too much weight I dunno..and that hat is really ugly..



  49. 49

    Good for Drew, it's def. important to be healthy……having said that, he looks a lot like the old man cartoon in "Up"in this picture….fedora and all!!!

    I call bullshit. First, the way to "reverse" type 2 diabetes is to go through long periods of starvation. An easy way to do that is to get gastric bypass surgery which is a kind of medical starvation. Of course this only works for a year or two. Your body will eventually readjust and you'll get fat again and your type 2 will come back. He looks like he's had gastric to me…

  51. @v@ says – reply to this


    51

    Good for him. It looks like a little too much cardio, and not enough upper body resistance. Bulk those arms, neck and shoulders a bit, and erase those moobs; develop the core, thighs and calves in conjunction with the cardio. He could cut down on his cardio as he's now obviously in maintenance mode rather than trimming. I hope he's thinking nutrition as well. He's got a great sense of humor.



  52. 52

    BOTH type 1 and type 2 are incurable. Type 1 requires insulin. Type 2 may require medication however, it can be managed with good diet and exercise habits can allow you to manage without medication but, you'll still be diabetic.

    That is IF you've truly been diagnosed as a diabetic.

    Stop saying type 2 is curable. It's irresponsible. There is no present cure for either type.



  53. 53

    Perez,

    Please contact the American Diabetes Association and post a quick clarifiction of diabetes. Both type 1 and 2 can not be cured. You can manage it without medication or insulin. It's a common misunderstanding that type 2 maybe curable as those that do lose weight can get off medication but, they will always have to watch their blood sugar and manage their diet and excercise to stay off the meds, at least until they run into their later years in life.



  54. 54

    He doesn't look good, he looks so ill.
    Is he ok?



  55. 55

    He just needs a little sun… but I agree 80 lbs in six months is 13 lbs a month, 2 lbs a week… that's too much too fast. Isn't HALF that amount much healthier way to lose the weight? 5 lbs a month is what 'they' say isn't it? I am no expert but his face looks dried up..



  56. 56

    Who cares whether or not TYPE II diabetes is curable or not???? Drew says he doesn't need medication to control it and it wont progress further if he maintains this lifestyle………so, that is a cure in my eyes. The dude doesnt' have TYPE II diabetes anymore….. he's cured!



  57. 57

    Thanks, kle_sam. All you "diabetes can't be cured" folks are all wet. Tons of reputable studies show that Type 2 diabetes can indeed be reversed so that all medications can be withdrawn. (In many cases, this can be accomplished in as few as 30 days.) If this isn't the definition of a cure, what is? Of course, none of these people can return to eating the crappy diet that gave them the disease — but who would want to? If you want to see the clinical proof — and how Type is easily reverse — check out The 30-Day Diabetes Cure by Dr. Stefan Ripich. Type 1 is a different story — but the same approach has allowed Type 1 patients to cut their insulin dose by up to 80%. And this is the only approach which protects all diabetics from the disease's horrible complications (which are what ultimately kill and cripple end-stage diabetics). If Drew says he's no longer on diabetes meds, why isn't that a cure, Jazz-hands Chaz. Where are you getting your information?



  58. 58

    Re: curiousred – You can cure type II diabetes by losing weight, what do you think causes it in the first place??? Perhaps you are thinking of type I Juvenile diabetes that does not have a cure yet.



  59. 59

    eliminating carbs?
    so he eats pure fat and protein? nasty
    or you just dont know what a carb is



  60. 60

    Too bad he looks sick now…



  61. 61

    He looks so much older now…



  62. 62

    Re: Jazz-hands Chaz – It's possible to lose that much weight in that time period. Re: xoxoBanz – There's absolutely nothing in what he says that implies that diabetes is only weight-related. For him, it was. It's not up to him to educate the entire public about diabetes. He's just talking about his own experience.



  63. 63

    he got the aids!!



  64. 64

    eating sensibly and excercising regularly should make a person look healthier…where is the muscle tone? Something's wrong…



  65. 65

    Type II diabetes is almost 100% behavior-related. You know how I know that? My science degree. I don't doubt that the American Diabetes Association disputes the fact… obviously that's because it is controlled by… wait for it… the DRUG COMPANIES who don't want you to lose weight and CURE your diabetes. I can understand why many of you want to pretend like you aren't to blame for your own problems, but in this case, you are. YOU are the ones spreading misinformation. If you want to sit on your fat lazy ass and eat chips, that's your business and your right, but when it makes you fat and sick and YES, diabetic, take responsibility for it.
