Beloved Roseanne actor John Goodman shows off 90 kilo weightloss: His diet trick revealed


He’s the TV legend who famously played portly Dan Conner on the classic US sitcom, Roseanne.

But beloved actor John Goodman showed off a very different look when he made a red carpet appearance on December 6.

Having lost a staggering 90 kilos, the actor was all smiles as he stepped out in LA, keeping it casual in blue jeans and a tweed jacket.

Social media users were quick to share their shock over his slimmed-down look.

“Holy s*** this is John Goodman now,” one Twitter user exclaimed.

“Wow, respect,” another added.

So how and when did the star address his weight?

According to UK publication, the Sun, John started by quitting heavy drinking in 2007 after winning an Emmy for a guest appearance on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

“I had to go accept an Emmy award,” he said. “So I missed the rehearsal because I was drunk. And then by the time Sunday morning rolled around I was shaking.

“I was still drinking, but I was still shaking. I had the clarity of thought that I needed to be hospitalised. I called my wife, which was like turning myself into the Gestapo. And she made some phone calls; we got me into a treatment centre, and I detoxed there and decided I liked the feeling. And it’s been (14) years.”

His booze ban meant that by 2016 he had lost 45 kilos, but he wasn’t done yet.

Hiring personal trainer Mackie Shilstone, to help him change his life, John started adopting a Mediterranean-style diet – focusing on fish, olive oil, vegetables, nuts and fruit.

He also began taking 10,000 to 12,000 steps a day and exercising six days a week.

“This didn’t happen overnight — it’s been an ongoing process,” Mackie told the New York Post in 2015.

“There needs to be strategic planning. This time, he really wanted to do it.”
