Penn Jillette weight loss 105 lbs!!  way to go

How Penn Jillette Lost 105 Lbs. — Without Magic!

Once 330 pounds, he has dropped to 225 lbs by making big changes to his eating habits.  Often it is blood pressure that that scares people into getting healthy and that was the case with Penn.  He was on SIX medications.  He had a great doctor who told him he could reduce the medication, but also he could eliminate the meds if he lost enough.

He lost the weight by his birthday and is now following a program where he consumes no animal products,  processed grains, and no added sugar or salt.  Sounds pretty easy.  He was stated as saying  he wasn’t exercising during his extreme weight-loss phase, but now exercises every other day, doing the “scientific 7-minute workout” along with weight lifting, juggling and 10-mile tricycle rides.

“I eat unbelievable amounts of food but just very, very, very healthy food,” says the magician.

His typical daily diet consists of an “enormous salad” with vinegar as dressing for lunch (he doesn’t usually eat breakfast) and a dinner consisting of 3 lbs. of greens and three servings of black or brown rice with a vegetable stew, along with lots of fruits for dessert (his favorite is “an enormous amount of blueberries with plain cocoa powder”) and vegetables with vinegar or Tabasco sauce as a snack.

“I could probably have a steak or a doughnut every couple of weeks, but I just haven’t felt like it,” says Jillette. “When you’re feeling as bad as I felt, and you go to feeling as good as I feel, the temptation to go back to doing what you were doing when you felt bad is not very great.”

My advice is to find a healthy diet.
