If your New Year’s resolution was to get jacked, you’re gonna need some serious inspo and no one is a better source of that right now than actor Ethan Suplee.
Remember this guy!? He was in Remember the Titans, My Name is Earl and Boy Meets World, but has come a long way since his early days in the spotlight.
Photos have surfaced of the actor quite literally looking half the man he used to be, and it’s safe to say, the Internet is shook.
In a new episode of his podcast American Glutton, the now 43-year-old actor opened up about his incredible weight loss journey and unhealthy relationship with food that started at just five years old.
After doing “all the diets” Suplee said “I had this idea now that food was something that people didn’t want me to have.”
“So if I wanted to have more, I needed to do it privately, and it became something that I was withholding from people,” he said, revealing that he weighed over 90 kilograms by the time he was age 10.
Despite losing hundreds of pounds, Suplee said his dramatic weight loss hasn’t actually been that great for his acting career. His co-host even noted that “we were all used to your My Name Is Earl weight or more.”
It’s a similar story for fellow actor and comedian Seth Rogen, who after losing a significant amount of weight a few years ago said, “you probably all notice that I’m around 10 pounds less funny.”
“I think for chubby guys, I was their guy,” he told interviewers. “They were like, ‘I can be chubby – Seth Rogen’s chubby, so who cares.’ But now I’m not so chubby anymore – I’ve let them down.”
After experiencing wildly fluctuating weight over the years, Ethan Suplee is now focusing on increasing his muscle mass and using food as “functional fuel.”
It’s pretty damn impressive to watch someone shed so many kilos and get fit without the help of big Hollywood trainers, but most importantly make their health their wealth, no matter what.
