Craig Robinson is feeling good these days. He’s got a new network show out with Adam Scott, Ghosted, which is apparently fairly decent. He’s looking good, too. In fact, he’s looking about 50 pounds lighter than he did at the beginning of the year. What’d he change?
“I haven’t been drinking. Since January I just put down the alcohol. I was going to detox,” Robinson toldwhile appearing on his talk show. “I had heard—I don’t know how true it is—but I heard you can regenerate your liver in six months.”
So he told himself he’d go the six months and see where he was, and where he was was so good that he has yet to touch alcohol. (The liver is the only organ in the body that can regenerate and heal itself with new cells, not scar tissue. Healing begins once you stop drinking, and can take weeks or months, depending on the case.)
It wasn’t just cutting out alcohol—Robinson is also working out and eating vegan. Before you shrug that one off, know he called the meatless, dairy-less diet “amazing.” “There are so many great vegan restaurant and dishes,” he continued. This is objectively true—vegetables taste good, especially when expertly prepared.
Robinson isn’t the first celebrity to stop imbibing for a healthier, trimmer body, and he definitely won’t be the last. Heavy or binge drinking does lead to weight gain, especially in people who are already overweight. Cheers to a healthy lifestyle change.
