Recently, Gervais decided he needed to get into better shape, not for a role, but for his health. Depending on which account you believe, Gervais lost anywhere from 22 to 42 pounds. And he's proud that it wasn't because of a fad diet.
Ricky hit the neighborhood trails, jogging his way to a slimmer figure. On the eating front, he curtailed late night snacking, skipping that second dinner at 11:30 PM.
Gervais' story is another example of a celebrity losing weight in a manner completely accessible to all of us. Yes, he has a home gym, but that's not what he attributes his loss to. Rather, it's the running and eliminating the extra meals. Oh, and his significant other Jane Fallon shared the journey. By cooking heavy meals in a lighter way, she lost some weight, too - 18 pounds, in fact. So get out and move, go to bed without stopping in the kitchen, and enroll your loved ones. It can be done.
