Zach Galifianakis is widely known as plump Hollywood comedian. But in 2014 he hit the audience with his new appearance.
Zach had not appeared in public for long period, and that time he spent usefully. The actor had lost approximately 20 kilograms, though the actor didn’t share what had provoked such changes.
Zach Galifianakis began losing weight in 2012. It seems that marriage with his girlfriend Quinn Lundberg pushed Zach to weight loss. Even before the marriage, friends and journalists noticed that Galifianakis dropped a couple of kilos.
Previously, the actor blamed his work schedule which did not allow him to eat regularly. It started at nine and ended at five in the morning, so Zach had breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack at any convenient time. Such indiscriminate eating led excess weight. The extra kilos and pursuit of more serious roles in movies pushed Galifianakis to take care of his health and to lose weight.
The first thing the actor got rid of was alcohol. He admitted that he woke up one day after a crazy party and he could not even stand up. Galifianakis was very surprised when he discovered that if he gives up drinking his usual several glasses of beer he can quickly and easily lose a few kilos.
This was the beginning to the maintenance of a healthy and proper lifestyle. Indeed, scientists really proved that abstinence allows you to drop during the month about half a kilogram. This also reduces the level of cholesterol and fat in the liver. To lose weight, Zach recommends to walk as much as possible and to give up a sedentary lifestyle.
Actually, he was right – the more we move, the more calories we burn. This activity and mobility are fundamental elements in the process of losing weight. Gymnastics and morning exercise are not only a charge of good mood and well-being for the whole day, but also at the regular basis such activities will melt weight very quickly.
Nutrition secrets and some eating tips.
Fast food and other fatty and high-calorie food rejection has played an important role in Zach’s weight loss. This is one of the reasons why the actor became so much thinner.
In addition to the refusal of flour, fatty food and sweets, the actor advises to consume more proteins. They help to build muscles and speed up metabolism. Zach recommends substituting candies with fresh fruit. He believes that it is a healthy and a useful alternative to sweets. Galifianakis has included in his diet such fruit: bananas, blueberries, pineapple, watermelon and grapes. Coffee and tea actor drinks without sugar, replacing it with fresh honey, which is a natural antioxidant.
Rejecting alcohol and harmful food, Galifianakis claims to feel happier and lighter. Although, sometimes he misses fast food and lying on the couch, but he actor is proud to lose 25 kilos and now does not choke when climbing upstairs.
We also should not forget about drinking water. It is recommended to drink a glass of water fifteen minutes before a meal, and during the day the amount of water you drink should be at least one and a half liters.
The role of a gym in the process of weight loss.
A gym allowed the actor to pump up muscles and significantly strengthen the entire body. He argues that it is the love of his wife pushed him to the sport. To lose weight, the actor had to give up sweets, such as candy, chocolate cake and ice cream. A nutritionist advised him to give up these fast carbohydrates, which in large quantities leads to the formation of fat.
