“Pawn Stars” fan-favorite Austin “Chumlee” Russell is all about making money for the store, but also all about losing weight … lots of weight.

The 31-year-old has lost 75 pounds, according the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“I’m going to the gym six days a week,” he told the Review-Journal. “I’m eating right. Well-balanced diet. I drink a juice smoothie every morning.”

Russell added that losing his father was also an inspiration to shed the weight.

“My dad died from pancreatic cancer at 54 … I’m making sure I’m eating my vegetables and staying away from the red meat,” he said.

To show off his new, slimmer look, Chumlee and his girlfriend Tany Hyjazi, who’s a chef at a major casino in Vegas, posted Instagram pics of the two of them on the beach in Hawaii for New Year’s.
