Your Weight Loss Success Stories
John Goodman, the actor from Roseanne and Treme has looked quite
charming in the past. Whilst being conducive to some roles, his weight
has spiralled out of control and he really didn’t appear to take much
care of himself in 2008 and 2009. However, when pictures appeared on
him on an AFI Tribute to Mike Nichols night in June 2010, he has
appeared to follow a 100 pound weight loss regime that has made him
look 10 years younger and much more full of life.
John Goodman Lost
John Goodman’s weight loss he says is put down to the fact that he
spent so much of his life wondering what to eat next and he feels it
was such a waste to spent time doing this when he could be doing
something more creative.
So how did the John Goodman weight loss occur? He started off by
quitting drinking 3 years ago now, and then he hired Mackie Shilstone –
a coach who has trained athletes from all over the world, but most
notably Serena Williams. We can’t all afford to hire world class
coaches however and so he has shared a few tips with us.
Firstly, he has cut absolutely all the sugar from his diet (as sugar is
a big contributor to weight gain) and he hits the gym 6 days a week.
Goodman says the gym isn’t a massive workout every week but he does
break a slight sweat and this really helps with his weight loss.
John Goodman’s weight loss now enables him to take on much more
athletic roles in films, so hopefully we might see him running around
the place more on TV. His coach has commented that John is now a
completely different person and can run for good lengths with agility;
John has said that he doesn’t want to return to being heavy again and
so it’ll be interesting to see what strategy he uses to keep his weight
off. Goodman’s weight loss does include completely cutting sugar out
from his diet, which just might not be achievable for some people. If
this is the case for you then you can look at diets which allow you to
have sugary treats every now and again.
We should use John Goodman’s weight loss story to inspire and motivate
us to lose weight. Quitting alcohol after 30 years of regular drinking
and dropping out sugar completely is not easy at all. 100lbs is a lot
to lose and we congratulate John on his hard work and dedication to his
