    Is he dying? 105 lbs in 4 months is crazy.

    Is there an article explaining if this is just weight loss or other issues?

    Who knew he had 105 lbs to lose in the first place? I never thought he was that big.

    I'm sure he's healthier but man, he just looks sick. Some bigger people just have that weird look when they get thinner. All Roker is another.

    Jennifer Hudson is one, too. Her weight loss aged her face so much.

    Christ! That's like 26 lbs. every month and there are only 30 days per month. Close to a pound a day is near impossible unless you literally stop eating...just bare subsistence and that is damned unhealthy!

    It's not healthy to lose all that weight so fast. I thought he was smarter than that.

    Just that he weighed 330 lbs and drastically changed his eating habits to healthy foods.

    Robin might want to give him a call for some tips.

    He looks good but dropped the lbs by only having 1000 calories a day for 4 months - even Wiggy probably has more than that. I'll wait to see what he looks like once he's back on a more sustainable diet.

    http://greatideas.people.com/2015/04/08/penn-jillette-weight-loss-las-vegas-home/

    "The 6’7” entertainer decided to get healthy after his high blood pressure landed him in the hospital.

    “I was on six very powerful meds to bring the blood pressure down,” Jillette, 60, tells PEOPLE. “My doctor said I needed to get my weight down, and if I brought it down 30 or 40 lbs. it would be a little easier to control. And then he said something in passing that completely blew my mind – he said, ‘If you got down to 230, you probably wouldn’t need any of the meds.’ ”

    The Wizard Wars judge decided to do just that, spending December through March on an “extreme low-calorie program” in which he consumed about 1,000 calories daily and was able to lose an average of 0.9 lbs. a day."

    Did he have weight loss surgery, I wonder? I don't know if I necessarily "dislike" his new look, but it's gonna take a minute to get used to... :eek:

    It's all in the dreaded neck. It's always the neck. My neck ain't so great either. Father Time is merciless.
