Why Did Drew Barrymore Decide To Lose Weight?
Drew Barrymore actually had no problem with the extra weight. But the actress revealed on The Late Late Show With James Corden that a stranger approached her in a restaurant and said, “God, you have so many kids.” and when Drew told her that she has only two kids, the stranger said, “well, and you’re expecting, obviously.” Drew quickly replied, “No, I’m just fat right now.” However, it was not the stranger that compelled her to lose the weight.
During her separation from her husband, Drew Barrymore was offered the Netflix series, Santa Clarita Diet. And it so happened that a zombie, who is on a protein diet, has to look slim. Protein helps lose fat and build muscle mass. So, you’d have to look toned and well structured. This triggered Drew to lose all the flab. And guess who she followed to lose the weight for her role?
In an interview, Drew revealed that she was motivated by Denzel Washington. She said, “I heard Denzel Washington does this,“ and went on to say, “He enjoys his life and then pulls himself back together when he is doing movies and looks amazing.” The actress added, “When I am doing the show, I am a vegan, I barely eat anything, and I workout every day. It gets to be euphoric and then it’s like food poisoning, you feel like you’ll never eat again, and then before you know it you’re pigging out with a feed bag strapped to your face. I ‘m a foodie and love food and I travel the world for food, so I get heavy again between the show.”
So, you see, like many of us, Drew has kept it real. Yes, we all tend to fall prey to delicious food and overeat or do not follow the diet plan for a while. But there’s always a way to come back. And the only thing that can help you get back in shape is motivation. It can be due to health reasons, an occasion you have to dress up for, etc. So, how did Drew lose the extra pounds and how much did she weigh before losing the weight? Scroll down to find out.
