Check Out 'Black-ish' Star Anthony Anderson's 47-Pound Weight Loss
Anthony Anderson, the star of the new ABC series "Black-ish," credits "healthier choices" for his stunning 47-pound weight loss.
The 44-year-old actor and self-described "husky" man said he never had a problem with his size, even at his heaviest weight of 270 pounds.
"I've always been confident," he told People.
But, after being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes 13 years ago, he started making small changes to his diet.
"I started eating healthier and in moderation, but I was still sort of eating the same stuff that I'd been eating all my life," he told the magazine.
That changed in 2008 when he was cast in "Law & Order."
"I decided to make a drastic change," Anderson said. "I got more serious about my health and appearance - not from a vanity standpoint. I just started making healthier choices."
He upped his game again before starting his new series "Black-ish."
"Six weeks ago, I moved to a plant-based diet, he told People. "I'm vegan-ish - I'm not going to send anything back to the kitchen if some butter or cream found its way onto the plate."
Though the father of two doesn't plan to be vegan-ish forever, he likes the results he's seen so far.
"This is what I'm supposed to look like," he said.
