Bob Barker may have dissed the host of "The Price is Right" but in the Showcase Showdown, Drew Carey is the winner!

Drew Carey has lost 80 pounds since January with a diet that has no carbs and 45 minutes of cardio a day, 6 days a week. Drew told People.com;

"I have cheated a couple times, but basically no carbs, not even a cracker. No bread at all. No pizza, nothing. No corn, no beans, no starches of any kind. Egg whites in the morning or like, Greek yogurt, cut some fruit."

So why did the famous overweight host want to lose weight?

"I like being skinny. I was sick of being fat on the camera," I just got sick of it."

The thing I am most proud of for Drew?  He had diabetes type II and with the weight loss no longer needs the medicine to fight it.

"I don't drink anything but water," he added. "No coffee, no tea, no soda."
Hmm.  I drink loads of water and green tea.  I do have a few Diet sodas in the morning as I don't drink coffee and need that caffeine fix man!

As a diabetic myself, I am happy for Drew and hope to hear he will be doing something for the cause to bring it to the masses attention.

What do you think of Drew's new look?-Dr.FB
