How Randy transformed his body and health

Speaking to Health magazine, Randy said: “As soon as I was diagnosed, I learned a lot about the disease really fast. I realized a lot of things that can happen if you don’t manage it, which is why I encourage everyone to do so.”

Diabetes is a disease in which a person’s blood sugar levels are too high. When a person is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, it means their body does not make or use insulin well. It has been linked to a number of other health conditions like heart disease, blindness, and even nerve damage. 

The star revealed that he underwent a weight loss surgery that helped him lose 100 pounds. But, the weight came back soon after.

Randy then took the diet route. “You have to almost have a complete divorce break up … and start back bit by bit and find out the things that work with your body and you also find out the allergies and really pay attention to how you feel,” he told People Magazine.

Speaking to WebMD, the star revealed that he keeps a lot of fruits and vegetables in his house now. “We now have the corn without the bread,” he said. He still consumes all his favourite treats—in moderation.

“If you make a mistake, change it the next day,” he said. “Never say ‘I will never have another piece of chocolate,’ because it won’t happen, and as soon as you say never, there is a binge coming.”

The star has also revealed how he added more physical activities like walking and yoga to his daily life.

Other celebs with diabetes

Randy isn’t the only celeb suffering from diabetes.

Others popular stars who have the same condition include the likes of Halle Berry, Tom Hanks, Salma Hayek, Nick Jonas, Sharon Stone and Paula Deen.
