Ethan Suplee recently posted his body transformation on social media and blew everyone away! Starring in roles on My Name is Earl and Mallrats, Suplee was known for his weight and size....not anymore!
On his podcast American Glutton, Suplee documents his weight loss journey after a life long battle with unhealthy eating habits.
“I learned really quickly that if I wanted a second helping of lasagna, when I cleared my plate, I had to eat it in the kitchen without them seeing, that I was not supposed to have that second helping of lasagna,” Suplee said on the podcast, recalling a trip to his grandparents’ house in Vermont in which they expressed concern over his weight.
“I just started practicing sneaking food,” he said, adding that the behavior continued into his preteen and teenage years. By age 10, Suplee said he weighed more than 200 pounds.
Suplee said that he got sober in 2002 and since then has tried just about any diet out there.
“I lost a s—load of weight. I went from 530 to, at my lowest, 220,” Suplee said, adding that he developed a passion for cycling after My Name Is Earl, on which he played Randy Hickey, was canceled in 2009. “At 220, I was very, very thin.”
But when he returned to acting a few years later, hundreds of pounds lighter, he said that it was more difficult for him to find work.
“At some point I was like, ‘Well f—, I’m just gonna get fat again because maybe it’ll be better for work,'” he said. “And honestly, it was.”
“I’d gained a bunch of weight back because I actually didn’t find being thin all that it’s cracked up to be,” he added. “So we convinced them that I was heavier again, and I went in, and that was that. I was heavy enough.”
On his American Glutton podcast, Suplee said that throughout his life, he’s “gained and lost probably close to 1,000 pounds at this point.”
Now, the actor is focusing on using “food as an energy source” to achieve his goals in the gym.
“My goal right now is a six-pack, and I’m not far off. Pretty f— close actually.,” he said. “So it’s an utterly vain goal. I don’t care. Who cares? I’ve never had a vain goal like that before.”
Everyone's favorite 90's dating show is returning with Keke Palmer and Joel Kim Booster as the hosts. Singled Out is slated to run for 20 episodes and launch in spring 2020.
According to a Friday (December 13) news release from MTV Studios and Quibi, the show will “bring online dating to life with a twist — the main dater is linked to the pool of diverse singles through social media. It will also “hook up a new generation of singles, of all genders and sexual preferences.”
The original program ran from 1995 to 1998 on MTV and was hosted by Chris Hardwick and Jenny McCarthy (until Carmen Electra replaced her for the last season and a half).
