Alec Baldwin of 30 Rock fame shed 30 pounds prior to his appearance at the 2012 SAG Awards on Sunday. Was there some particular reason for the weight loss or did he simply want to shed a few pounds?
According to a report from Celebuzz, it seems that Baldwin and southern belle and butter chef extraordinaire Paula Deen are actually floating in a similar boat. Baldwin has been diagnosed with pre-diabetes--typically a precursor to Deen's diagnosis of Type II diabetes.
Baldwin spoke with Entertainment Tonight while walking the red carpet at the SAG Awards. When mention was made of his very noticeable weight loss, he spilled the beans. Diagnosed last May with the pre-diabetic condition, doctors told him to modify his diet and lose some weight to avoid a Type II diabetes diagnosis down the line. He did both--cutting sugar out of his diet, and exercising regularly.
Some speculate that yoga may be part of Alec Baldwin's new fitness routine. He just happens to be dating a very lovely lady named Hilaria Thomas, who is--you guessed it--a yoga instructor.
Check out this photo of Baldwin at Sunday's 2012 SAG Awards next to a photo of the actor before losing the 30 pounds. You'll no doubt notice quite a remarkable difference.
Paula Deen, eat your heart out! Maybe you should be following Alec's example and cut out sugar and take up yoga.
What do you think the chances of that happening might be?
Congratulations to Alec Baldwin of 30 Rock on his incredible weight loss and for taking control of his health. Fans love the fact that he'll likely be around to entertain far longer since taking this important action.
How many more times do you suppose he'll get to host SNL?
