(NaturalNews) In a recent People article, celebrity actor and host of The Price is Right Drew Carey shares about how he has shed 80 pounds -- and counting -- and cured his own diabetes by following a strict diet of no carbohydrates and getting plenty of exercise.
The 52-year-old former host of The Drew Carey Show explained to reporters that he got tired of being fat and seeing himself on camera. So he embarked on a plan to cut the junk from his diet and begin a daily exercise routine. After losing nearly 80 pounds in about six months, Carey also cured himself of his type-2 diabetes.
"I'm not diabetic anymore. No medication needed," he explained.
By sticking primarily to egg whites, yogurt, fruit, lean meats and water, Carey was able to drop from a size 44 pants to a 33-34.
"I have cheated a couple times, but basically no carbs, not even a cracker. No bread at all. No pizza, nothing. No corn, no beans, no starches of any kind," he said.
Carey also maintained a cardio workout routine consisting of at least 45 minutes of exercise a day to get him where he is currently, and he plans to keep it up to get to a size 32 pants.
Carey's success story is an amazing testimony to the power of healthy eating and exercise in curing disease and maintaining good health. Rather than rely on pharmaceutical drugs like many do, Carey has raised the bar and set a good example for the public of how to achieve true health.
