Ethan Suplee had hit a skid in his personal life that saw him balloon up to 530 pounds. Even the former Hollywood A-lister himself realized that he needed to turn things around if wanted to improve his health and underwent an incredible body transformation. In a recent post made on Instagram, Suplee showed off his current physique in a shirtless pool photo.
Suplee first rose to popularity in 2000 for his work in the famous Walt Disney Pictures film ‘Remember The Titans’, where he played Louie Lastik. Nearly two decades on, he was not doing well in terms of his health and openly spoke about the difficulties that stemmed from his mental health.
Ethan Supple then realized a change was needed and started experimenting with different diets, going on a liquid diet with reduced calories combined with a solid training regime that helped him start dropping off some of the weight. However, the diet was not ideal for long-term practical use.
While a diet and training plan can yield the results they need, it may not be sustainable for long. So, Suplee took a simple, but effective, route and made sure to walk every day. He talked about not wanting to make lifestyle changes that might be too extreme and slowly worked his way up, starting from training only an hour per session as that was sustainable for him.
As for his diet, Ethan tried many different kinds of diets that were trending, such as keto, paleo, Atkins, and South Beach. He reported that he found the best results from following the keto diet for years, but with the caveat that he needed to add some carbohydrates to see the muscle definition he was looking for.

In a recent post uploaded on his Instagram account, Suplee shared a shirtless photo of himself in the pool. He can be seen flexing his biceps while posing, while some ab development is visible as well.
“Skin is the largest organ of the human body. Some of it’s functions are waterproofing the rest of our organs, it is the first line of defense against bacteria and other organisms, it acts as a cooling system via sweat, and it delivers information to us via tactile sense.
Our skin grows as we do, and yet always wants to remain elastic so that when needed, we can store more fat, and for childbearing purposes in women.
Once you’ve stored so much excess fat that your skin is stretched taut, it will grow larger to accommodate. Some women even find that if they do not return to their pre pregnancy size fast enough after giving birth, that skin around their abdomen has grown in anticipation of needing to expand from the larger set point.
There is no natural path for reducing skin. No type of diet, or cream, or fancy red light application that will get skin to grow smaller.
Autophagy has been cited by adherents of Intermittent Fasting as way to get your skin to consume itself. This is total nonsense. Your body will consume fat, then muscle, and finally as it approaches death during starvation it will begin to consume organs. Your teeth will fall out before you see a reduction in skin size via this method.”
Ethan Suplee has pulled off one of the most incredible body transformations, but more importantly, it is evident that he feels much happier with it. The actor opened up about the huge weight loss which left him almost unrecognizable on the popular podcast show, Joe Rogan Experience.
More so than any other diet, he highlighted the importance of ‘undoing the bad habits’ that allowed him to get up to 550lb as the key to his weight loss.
