What is Josh Peck’s Workout Routine?
Josh Peck has had quite the transformation from when he was a teenager to being a grown man in his 30s. In the sitcom Drake & Josh, aside from his hilarious performance, people also remembered the actor for his chubby appearance. Peck also said that he weighed over 300 pounds when he was 18 and because of his asthma, it was not easy for him to exercise and lose the weight. But with hard work, determination and discipline, he finally did!
Wondering how Josh Peck lost all the extra weight? According to the actor, he had to completely change his lifestyle. For him, that meant going to the gym regularly and sticking to a clean diet. “I made a conscious effort to lose weight because I knew I could be happier, as well as healthier,” he said back in 2006.
Hiring a physical trainer to help him exercise efficiently, he integrated simple activities like walking and running on a daily basis into his lifestyle, as well as performing cardio workouts. Several years later and the actor still maintains a toned physique by consistently hitting the gym and choosing healthy foods over junk meals.
Nonetheless, he’s confessed that talking about his weight loss has been getting tiresome. “People have been so obsessed with my weight loss and it’s like 12 years later -I’m like ‘Man, had I gone through my awkward teenage years alone and not on television, this would just be a small footnote in my life,” said Peck in an interview. The actor also doesn’t find the continued use of memes from when he was overweight funny or amusing, telling people to ‘move on’ already.
