What a transformation indeed! John Goodman is sporting a much thinner look these days- thanks to his hard work and the guidance of fitness guru Mackie Shilstone. The celebrity trainer has shared the secrets behind Goodman’s weight loss.
“This didn’t happen overnight — it’s been an ongoing process,” Shilstone said. “There needs to be strategic planning. This time, he really wanted to do it.”
The charismatic actor, 63, debuted his amazing weight loss at the BFI London Film Festival on Oct. 8 (above photo). He wore a fitted navy suit and walked the red carpet with his Trumbo costars Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren.
According to Shilstone, the weight loss was all thanks to Goodman’s commitment to a healthier way of life. It all started back in 2007 when the actor gave up alcohol. Goodman also stuck to healthy eating following a Mediterranean style plan- ie. mostly plant based, lots of vegetables and limited red meat.
For the actor, exercise was also a major component. The Argo star broke a sweat six days a week and tried to take at least 10,000 to 12,000 steps a day. When not at work, he saw results by working out on a treadmill and elliptical bicycle.
Goodman’s most famous on-screen wife has also dropped the pounds recently. Last year, Roseanne Barr, 63, turned heads when she showed off her new figure at the NBC Universal Summer Press Day. “You eat less and move more,” she told the Today show in June 2014.
