Drew Carey’s weight loss journey, is an inspiration to all

Drew Allison Carey is an American actor, comedian, and TV host. Hollywood seems to be one of the most beautiful places to be owing to their glamorous lifestyle, cars, houses, and their fat paycheck, but there are many struggles we might not be aware of them existing.


Most times, the life of an actor can de very demanding, as they get to spend a lot of time on set and the stress that comes with the whole acting stuff is alone to put their health in the line.

Many actors have realized this and they do all they can to be healthy. When TV host Carey decided to embark on his weight loss plan many felt he was going to give up along the way and get back to adding weight.

Looking at Carey today, he never gave up on his dreams and he does look good after losing some pounds.

Drew Allison Carey’s childhood was very tough as he lost his father to a brain tumor at the age of 8. Carey and his two brothers were singlehandedly raised by their mom who was doing two jobs.

“I have been in a lot of desperate situations,” said Drew told Kirkland Reporter in 2010.


Carey started his career in stand-up comedy after being expelled from the university twice. Carey had talent and it was speaking for him, and he was a regular guest at comedy clubs in Cleveland and Los Angeles.

He got more attention after he entered the ”Star Search” competition in 1988. This made him a guest appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and also Late Night with David Letterman.

Drew Carey was known by many people after his self-titled sitcom The Drew Carey Show, aired on ABC between 1995 to 2004, revolved around the home life of “everyman” Drew Carey, a fictionalized version of the comedian; 233 episodes were aired in 9 seasons.


Even though the show gave him fame, Carey wasn’t comfortable with the extra weight he had to carry. “I was sick of being fat on the camera. Really, I just got sick of it,” Drew told People.

In 2010, he decided to embark on a weight loss journey and cut out all the junks and crabs she does consume.

He stuck to a low-calorie diet and exercise and it produced incredible results.

“I had to change my whole belief system [around dieting],” he told Success in 2016. “It wasn’t like, ‘Eat this for 90 days and lose 20 pounds.’ It was: ‘Eat like this for the rest of your life.’ I’m not a maniac about it… I mean, I was at a wedding on Saturday, and I ate cake. But 95 percent of the time, I’m right on the money.”
