PENN JILLETTE – 100 POUNDS
One half of the famed magician duo Penn and Teller, Penn Jillette, ended up losing a total of 100 pounds – and there surely was no magic involved! When Jillette’s doctor discovered a 90% blockage in his heart, they advised him to lose weight immediately. While under medical supervision, the magic-man started on a “potato diet” where he ate only potatoes for an entire two weeks!
Following this, they slowly added vegetable stews and salads to his meal plans. This helped him shed 75 pounds in just 3 weeks. His diet may be a bit monotonous, but it helped him gain his health back and get rid of his bad eating habits. We’re sure he’s got health insurance, or his hospital bills might have been a bit of a nightmare!
