Holy cow — Penn Jillette, is that you?!
If you didn't know, you do now. The Wizard Wars judge and comedian lost a significant amount of weight and you can totally see it in his recent photos — for all you haters out there, this is NOT an illusion or a trick for that matter!

Srsly though, what a difference a little over three months makes!
The 60-year-old opened up to People about his 105 pound weight loss journey (at 6' 7," he was able to go from 330 pounds to 225) in an interview that was posted on Wednesday.
"I was on six very powerful meds to bring the blood pressure down. My doctor said I needed to get my weight down, and if I brought it down 30 or 40 lbs. it would be a little easier to control. And then he said something in passing that completely blew my mind – he said, 'If you got down to 230, you probably wouldn't need any of the meds.'"
And that's exactly what he did.
After the doctor's comment in December 2014, the famed magic man changed his diet and went on to only consume 1,000 calories A DAY!
That's SO hard to do, but Penn made it happen, and look at where he is today!!
He reached his goal weight on his birthday, March 5, and has since then changed his diet and took out animal products, processed grains, and foods that have crazy amounts of sugar and salt.
Good for him! His new look will take some time to get used to, but we're so glad he's healthy and happy with his own body now! Bravo!
