Drew Carey’s weight loss did more than drop 80 pounds from his once more than ample frame: it also eliminated his type 2 diabetes. According to the host of The Price Is Right, he told People “I’m not diabetic anymore. No medication needed.”
The secret to Drew Carey’s weight loss is nothing mysterious: he cut out carbohydrates (although he admits he cheated a few times) and eats lots of egg whites, fruit, and Greek yogurt. His one and only beverage is water, and he does lots of cardiovascular exercise, at least 45 minutes a day.
It’s been shown that if you are overweight and have type 2 diabetes, losing a significant amount of weight not only lowers your blood sugar and improves your overall health, it can also eliminate your diabetes and thus your need for diabetes medication. However, doctors warn that if you are diabetic and are engaged in a weight loss program, it’s important to work with your doctor because your blood sugar, insulin, and diabetes medications need to be monitored.
