HTV National Desk Published 2:24 pm CDT, Wednesday, June 19, 2019 Image 1 of / 1 Caption Close Image 1 of 1 How magician Penn Jillette lost 100 pounds on potato diet 1 / 1 Back to Gallery Penn Jillette can make just about anything disappear, but the famous illusionist performed perhaps his most dramatic (and riskiest) vanishing act on himself. The taller half of Penn & Teller dropped over 100 pounds by adopting an intensely restrictive diet several years ago. Currently starring on the CW's "Penn & Teller: Fool Us," viewers might remember a different version of Jillette. The 6-foot, 7-inch magician weighed 322 pounds several years ago, when doctors discovered a 90% blockage in his heart.

Like most men, Stephen Griffin’s weight gain came on slowly. A few pounds crept on here, another few pounds there, and soon enough he was weighing in at 342 pounds by his mid-twenties. As a member of the Irish Police, Griffin’s weight not only became problematic, it also became the butt of a few jokes. But those very same snide remarks motivated Griffin to drop 100 pounds—and now he’s the one laughing. “I had become incredibly lazy. I think I even knew that much myself at the time,” Griffin says. ”But I simply didn't have the want or the drive to go and change it.”At his job as a member of An Garda Siochana—the Irish police—Griffin’s day-to-day involved shift work.

Logan Chapman knows what it’s like to fight tooth and nail for what you want. After all, he did drop more than 100 pounds on his quest to get healthy. But, as a guy who hates dieting and the gym, and has a severe case of dessert FOMO—translation: fear of missing out—Chapman may have one of the most relatable weight loss experiences of all time. "I feel like my life was probably very similar to a lot of other people who struggle with weight gain,” Chapman, a 30-year-old from Ontario, Canada, told Men's Health. “I was a huge fan of eating very unhealthy foods and not a big fan of exercise. I led a very sedentary lifestyle. I would stay up till all hours of the night playing video games and would often be drinking cans and cans of pop and eating huge meals at two in the morning.” There was no single “ah-ha” moment when he decided to lose weight, but one thing that does stick out in Chapman's mind is when he hopped on a scale one day and saw … [Read more...] about This Man Lost More Than 100 Pounds Without Going to the Gym.
