This My Name Is Earl Star Lost Weight And Got Totally Ripped

Ethan Suplee made a name for himself by starring
in the likes of Mallrats and My Name is Earl, but his decision to focus on fitness and lose
weight actually cost him dearly in Hollywood. Now he’s opening up about his dramatic transformation
and future goals. Improving health, suffering career There’s no denying that Suplee found fame
in showbiz. Unfortunately, that fame worked against him
when he decided to get his health back on track. In a 2017 interview with Entertainment Weekly,
he explained, for example, how difficult it was for him to land a role on the Hulu psychological
thriller Chance. He revealed, “Initially, the casting directors didn’t want
me to come in because I’d lost a bunch of weight. Apparently they had proposed me a bunch of
times, but the casting directors were like, ‘No, he’s too thin now.'” Getting rejected in Hollywood must hurt, so
Suplee eventually decided to stop prioritizing his fitness as much as he had been. As he put it to EW, “A couple years ago I made the decision: I’m
not going to kill myself to be thin when nobody knows me as a thin person, and I do think
it is affecting the kind of jobs I’m getting. And so I just kind of relaxed on my diet.” Lifelong struggle Suplee’s dramatic transformation is particularly
commendable considering that he’s struggled with his weight his entire life. He’s been talking about it openly a lot lately,
particularly on his podcast, American Glutton, which he launched in January 2020. As he explained on the podcast, he’s struggled
with his weight since he was 5 years old, and he’s also revealed that his grandparents
even restricted his eating. He then turned to drugs and alcohol to, quote,
“help fill the void inside him.” “Now when I look at pictures of me as a 5-year-old
kid, I see a totally normal kid. I don’t even see an overweight kid. I see, basically, an average 5-year-old kid.” After finding mainstream success on My Name
Is Earl, Suplee became known for big-bodied characters, which made it hard for him to
expand into more diverse roles. When the show ended in 2009, he took on cycling
as a hobby and slimmed down from over 400 pounds to 220 pounds. Unfortunately, though, his new look cost him
work. Scientific approach Suplee began 2020 in the spotlight thanks
to his weight loss, which gave him a fantastic platform to discuss his diet goals and educate
others struggling with the same issues. As he explained to Men’s Health, “I made my career as the fat guy. I don’t want to be fat anymore. If the podcast is what I have to do to make
a career, that’s fine. The most important thing I would want anyone
to take away is that for me, the biggest change was understanding how food works, and the
more I feel that I understand, scientifically, the more power I have over it.” With diet and exercise, Suplee is taking a
scientific approach to the world of nutrition. As he revealed to Men’s Health, he was on
a ketogenic diet until he came across a TED Talk by Dr. Mike Israetel called “The Scientific
Landscape of Healthy Eating.” After studying the talk, he switched to a
low-fat diet and gained eight pounds in three days, but he stayed the course of committing
to the science. For him, this meant aiming to get to a weight
of about 260 pounds and working towards 10 percent body fat. “I have to trick my body into thinking it
needs the muscle to survive.” Rigorous training schedule While Suplee has taken a scientific approach
to nutrition, he also spends a good chunk of his time physically training. He revealed to Extra in February 2020 that
he spends about an hour at the gym every day. In fact, he’s gotten so streamlined with his
workouts that he gave Men’s Health a glimpse at what he does at the gym. He revealed that since he’s lost a lot of
weight, he’s now focusing on retaining as much muscle as possible as he continues to
drop the pounds. He also noted that a girl he met was another
important reason for keeping up his regimen. “Losing weight and getting healthy was the
only way that I could see on making sure I had the longest time with her.” Suplee is also focusing on maintaining his
current weight, rather than dropping much lower on the scale. As he explained to Extra, he was about 50
pounds lighter in 2011 than he is now, but his skin hung loose, and he didn’t feel happy. “I felt like a light breeze would knock me
over.” “So, how do you feel now?” “I feel fantastic.” Making food “unenjoyable” While training is essential to Suplee’s transformation,
he also credits his lean, high-protein diet, which doesn’t sound like it’s all that appetizing
when he describes it. He told People Magazine, “I actually work to make my diet unenjoyable. I’m trying partially because I’m a little
bit of a masochist, but also because I want food not to be a crutch emotionally. I want it to be a source of fuel.” Suplee shed a bit more insight into the trials
and tribulations of dieting during an interview with Extra. “I numb myself with it, I entertain myself
with it, I anesthetize myself with it, and I have to just stay away from that.” Suplee follows his eating regimen pretty closely
and consistently, but when he does deviate from his diet, he makes sure to plan that
out. For example, there’s a place called Burgers
Never Say Die that he goes to two or three times a year. Hopefully there are many great things still
to come for Ethan Suplee for both his fitness and career! Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your

  1. He chose his Health over Wealth of Hollywood and is an absolute complete inspiration and motivation for those like myself struggling with weight issues. He definitely has his priorities in order!

  2. If your a fat actor in Hollywood don’t loss weight or you loss your acting career. He is not the only actor that is blacklisted for losing weight so was Mellisa McCarthy. Hollywood is obsessed with fat actors rolls.

  3. Hollywood would punish him for not maintaining the image they've initially carved for the guy 😒 let the guy celebrate his health, damn it!

  4. The guy is a huge inspiration to someone like me. I'm 6'9" and weighing in at a whopping 430 lbs… I hope some day before I die I can find a way to drop the pounds like he did. I have no idea how to eat correctly, how to exercise correctly, what regimen to follow or anything like that for someone of my size. I just know he inspires me to at least want to do better. Depression has had such a tight hold on me for so long I damn near forgot what it's like to feel inspired. Ethan has my respect.

  5. Hollywood is toxic all it does is promote harmful behaviors. I hope sticks to his diet he looks like a professional wrestler now.

  6. Cool he lost weight cause he wanted to for good reason. hollywood always try control stars by studios expect u to be a certain weight and look. to not be cast in shows or movies now is stupid just cause he wanna loose weight any. hope he gets work any and it the studios loss to not hire cause he cares about his health. seems hollywood try control everything all the time till stars and fans fight back and stop watching or making projects anytime.

  7. You look great. Do what makes you feel good and healthy. You're young and life holds a lot for you if you are in your best shape ever and feel good. Don't mess up your body for anybody-it's all yours for the rest of your life.

  8. They canceled Molly and Mike cuz Melissa McCarthy lost all her weight so it sounds like once you're overweight and Hollywood stay overweight you want to work

  9. He looks absolutely amazing and healthier 😍. Congratulations on getting healthy and looking happier.

  10. Amazing transformation, that's dedication and if producers won't cast him, stuff 'em, health is more important. Anyone with this much commitment will succeed in any chosen career. Keep it up big fella.

  11. just wear a fat suit and lots of makeup to give him the illusion of a fat face. Hello this is hollywood. He still knows how to play the fat guy….

  12. What the hell Hollywood??? If you can act when you're fat then you can dang sure act when you're healthier, same person, smh, hollywood ruins careers, they only want actors to keep certain stereotypes from other tv shows or movies and never change, but Ed O'neill was stereotyped as Al Bundy and went on successfully in non comic leading roles, so it can be done.

  13. Wow now that I think about it this dude has been around for a while, he was Frankie the artsy bully on boy meet world

  14. Looking good Bro. Keep it up. Screw everybody else. Keeping healthy and slim makes you just feel better.

  15. He had some great range as an actor. Remember the Titans, My Name is Earl, American History X, Butterfly Effect.

  16. He's ready for the MCU/DCEU. He has a strong acting background, so he can hold his own along side the other actors. I don't know who, but he can play someone.

  17. Well I totally support this guy's search for health and happiness I hope that he has also figured in a really good therapist along with his Fitness coach. Obviously food and beauty and fame and fortune are all mixed up in his brain and he needs someone professional to help him see what's important and what's not.

  18. Hollywood doesn’t do “average” well. You either have to be supper ripped or overweight if you’re a male. It’s strange we don’t like to see regular looking people on screen

  19. F*** Hollywood a bunch of overpaid people well overpaid and they still wine and crying and complain

  20. His character in Chance would not have made any sense being heavier and unhealthier. So unless they rewrote his part he was the perfect size. And even though hes not fat and not sought after for the fat comedic character roles. Now that hes in impeccable shape he can be in a lot of other things. Chris Pratt was the fat comedic character in the stuff he played and now he's Star Lord. Terry Crews is in amazing shape and he plays the comedic character in a lot of movies.

  21. now lets just hope he keeps that motivation when she leaves, which i hope it wont happen but my oh my is that place a dark dark place when the woman leaves

  22. First off, he will ALWAYS be Frankie from Boy Meets World

    Second, he will end up being in the next Rock/Cena film or Fast & Furious

  23. This is a lie he didn't lose weight I believe he is in a new movie called the hunt or something like that and he is still chubby 😂😂💀
