How Josh Peck Dropped 110 Pounds

My kids are big fans of Nickolodeon's hit show "Drake and Josh". It's a sitcom geared for kids under fourteen and is about two step-brothers and their various adventures and mis-adventures. The premise is that one of the brother is a heartthrob and ladies man while the other is overweight but lovable.

If you've watched the show lately however, you've noticed that Josh Peck (the fat lovable one) has lost a ton of weight and is really looking great! I was curious about his weight loss and found a People magazine article that explained how he lost 110 pounds during 2006. Apparently he decided that he could be a better role model for America's kids if he got into shape. He basically spent 18 months working out with a personal trainer and changing his eating habits. Simple yet effective!

Congratulations to Josh and to his improved health and appearance! Way to go!

It is good for someone in the public eye to lose weight the right way. Through diet and hard work and not gimmicks and surgery.

It's so sad to see all the mean comments saying that he has used drugs to lose the weight. I am overweight and know the struggle of dieting and exercise to lose weight. Im so proud to see a "child role model" join the fight against child obesity.

While I don't doubt he hired a personal trainer & exercized, he did NOT lose all that weight without the help of the scalpel... aka gastric bypass surgery

It is completely possible for someone to lose all that weight without surgery, tyke81...

It does take a tremendous amount of will power and hard work, but it can be done. And it can be done in a relatively short amount of time, especially if diet is modified and he's exercising a lot.

I've seen it happen too many times without the help of surgery, and while Josh lost 110 pounds, it's not like it was 400...110 pounds is a completely reasonable amount of weight to lose "the old fashioned way."

A whole array of anti-obesity pills and medicines are available in the market that helps you to trigger off successful weight loss but the weight loss diet pill Xenical is somewhat different as it prevents around 30% of the fat you take from being absorbed in your system. This further leads to less fat accumulation and ultimately weight loss becomes a reality. For more details on Xenical, visit the website http://www.weight-loss-truths.com

Josh Peck is a comedian, like many comedians before him such as Chris Farley and John Belushi he dabbled in drugs. drugs such as meth and coke. if you have read any of the dangers of meth or coke, they cause loss of appetite. it wasnt diet and exercise, it was the coke and water diet with the meth and water diet. if you watched the christmas special you notice that he has dark circles around his eyes. what causes dark circles, lack of sleep. what do coke and meth do? keep you awake, for days. some role model.

Josh Peck is an incredible role model for younger kids to have around. Having an amazing person like him being on a tv broadcast daily, will hopefully help prevent child obesity. Drugs were not Josh's way out he took it upon himself to TRY.

People would like to say the boy was on drugs because of Former comedic legends like John Belushi & Chris Farley; but if you can take the time to notice something, John & Chris stayed overweight throughout their drug use. I am proud of Josh Peck because he made a conscious decision to get healthy and do something about it. Why try to knock his efforts in trying to inspire youth & adults alike to get healthy. Whether ot was natural or he had surgical assistance, he still looks great. & he's maintained it well. Good Job!
