Craig Robinson Dropped 50 Pounds By Going Vegan And Cutting Alcohol

Actor and comedian Craig Robinson has been shedding some weight as of late, and he attributes that to a couple of drastic switches in his lifestyle. You can see his new figure in the video below:

In an interview on the talk show Harry, Robinson, who is famous for his roles in comedic shows like The Office and Ghosted, revealed that he had lost 50 pounds over the past six months by switching to a vegan diet and abstaining from alcohol.

“I haven’t been drinking, since January I just put down the alcohol. I was going to detox…I had heard, I don’t know how true it is, but I heard you can regenerate your liver in six months. I was like let me see if I can go six months and I just haven’t gone back and then working out and I’ve been trying this vegan lifestyle, too.”

Following those six months, Robinson stayed away from alcohol and combined a fitness routine with going vegan. He’s been enjoying the vegan eats out there, saying that “there are so many great restaurants and dishes.” He’s found the vegan diet “much easier than I thought it would be,” but does miss being able to eat macaroni and cheese, he admitted.

Robinson is one of many celebrities who’ve gone vegan and found great results. Rapper Wacka Flocka Flame and Kylie Jenner have both switched to the meat-free, dairy-free lifestyle and even created eye-popping vegan meals or lines of vegan edibles as a result. As vegan food continues to grow in popularity in this country with items like the Impossible Burger flourishing, it’s likely we’ll see even more celebrities move to a plant-based diet in the future.
