Jerry O’Connell’s Big, Hot Body
When Jerry O’Connell finally “arrived” in Hollywood, his life wasn’t the only thing that had changed—his body did, too.
“All of a sudden, I was going out and getting invited to parties with an open bar,” he half-lamented to Men’s Fitness. Moving from his previous, more sheltered existence to the role of a partying TV star was a major challenge for O’Connell, and it wasn’t long, he says, before the nightlife took top billing over his health. Working hard by day and binge drinking on the weekends, he began to gain weight rapidly. Though an athletically built 6-foot-2, he was nonetheless soon pushing 200 pounds.”
Today Jerry looks great. He works hard in the gym, I’ve spotted him at Equinox and Crunch. But he’s also developed discipline around his eating habits. Instead of ordering a pizza after a long day of work, now he has a salad with fat free dressing.
Another secret to his hard body? He dropped all junk food, and — additives.
“‘Additives are bad. I found that just by cutting out booze, salt, and dressings, the fat just drips off you.'”
