Kevin McHale is showing off the results of his new exercise routine.
While talking to Us Weekly, the former Glee star shared that he’s been on a 12-week weight loss journey.
But don’t think that this change was because of vanity, McHale shares that he’s had to do it for health reasons.
“I had been working through an intestine and digestion issue that was eluding diagnosis and that really took a toll on me,” the 30-year-old told Us Weekly. “I was constantly in pain. I had tried so many different elimination diets—nothing was working. It got to the point where I was already feeling miserable because of the intestinal issues, plus the self-added guilt of not getting myself to the gym or eating as healthy as possible. It was a recipe for disaster.”
McHale shares that the workout routine was excruciatingly hard, but he kept at it with the help of his fitness trainer Eddie.
“Eddie pushed me to the point of failure, conditioning me to be comfortable with that, knowing that I could push myself harder than I thought I could. And when I couldn’t, he would be there to quite literally take the weight from me.”
As for his meals, McHale said that he began meal prepping on Sundays and always stayed strictly within the confines of his diet plan.
“I was intimidated by the prospect of having to completely relearn everything I knew about food and learn to make elaborate meals,” he said.
While Kevin McHale certainly looks impressive in his after photos, his before photos looked wonderful as well. What’s really makes us happy as third parties in this story is that McHale seems so happy about his transformation. Even better, it’s not because of how he looks, but because of how he feels.
McHale shared with Us Weekly that his exercise routine and his new eating plan/rules have forced him to rethink his way of living. This transformation was more about his way of life and not about his body, and that’s why it’s so uplifting.
“When you’re investing your time and energy into yourself in this way, it changes so much of your life.”
