This week, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart had a lineup of a few of our favorite comedians. Monday night started out with Ricky Gervais, which was pretty crazy. Tuesday’s guest was Jeff Garlin from HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Wednesday it was Tracy Morgan. All three of these comics appear to be winning struggles with their weight. On Monday, I was taken by how good Ricky looked, and apparently so was Jon. The show got a little raunchy between the two of them.
Last night, we watched Jeff Garlin’s segment from Tuesday. When Jeff walked out, I was so happy to see that he also had shed quite a bit of weight. The last time I saw him, he seemed dangerously overweight.
Jeff has a new book out, called My Footprint: Carrying the Weight of the World, about reducing his physical weight as well as his carbon footprint. It looks both humorous and helpful.
Jeff told Jon that he feels great! He said he hasn’t had sugar or fast food for a year, and that if he had a cookie right now he would probably be right back to his old habits.
I give him a lot of credit. Not eating sugar for a year is a great accomplishment. I sure wish I could say the same. If there is one thing I really have a hard time with, it is sugar. I have gone weeks without, but not much longer.
I am, however, very happy that this morning the results from my glucose test came back negative for diabetes. What a major relief!
I will be adding Jeff’s book to my reading list, to see what tips he may have to help me with my sugar addiction.
