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’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 weight loss!
John Goodman Before and After Weight Loss Pictures
Here are some more pics with John’s great achievement. Most of his after pictures are shot in 2008 and early 2009, while the after weight loss ones are dating from summer 2010. You can observe in the before pictures the impact that alcohol, overeating and cigarettes had on Goodman’s body. He looked aged and not healthy at all. However, the after weight loss photos show a younger man which looks a lot more healthy and energetic.
