Well, I am watching The Price Is Right and can't believe the transformation in Drew Carey. He has to be down 100lbs and he looks awesome. A quick google search says he did it the old fashioned way with diet and exercise. I suspect he's had alittle surgical help too ... 100 lbs from January to August seems alot without some help. Either way .... he looks terrific and he says he's off his diabetes medication which is wonderful too. Good luck, Drew! Keep up the good work!

My ex lost over 100 lbs in four months once, when he stopped drinking beer and other alcohol and stopped eating anything 'white'.. (white bread, flour, rice)

Men can drop weight fairly quickly so I don't doubt he did it the 'old fashioned' way.

The trick will be.. can he keep it off? My ex is now bigger than ever, probably close to 400 lbs.. his 'healthy weight' would be closer to 170 lbs for his build so.

Fortunately for the celebrities they have the support from all sides to help them along. Most of us can't afford that kind of support group.

I would not want the public's watchful eye or abundance of scrutiny watching my every bite. Unfortunately no matter how much money he has it will not buy him privacy. I know I am not strong enough emotionally nor mentally to stand up to the paparazzi or peers he is subjected to daily. The world he is lives in feeds off of other peoples failures. I wish him much success.

100lbs in 7 months isn't really that unrealistic if someone is seriously committed. Plus with most Celebs they have personal trainers working them out and personal chefs cooking their meals and doing all the thinking for them!

I've lost 60lbs in 4 months following the diet that the nut gave me as my pre-op diet to get my BMI down to make me qualify for surgery and exercising my tooshie off.

It's not impossible I don't think, but it will be interesting to see if he keeps it off, that's the thing about losing that much weight the old fashion way, very few of us are ever successful and keeping it off.
