Danson Gets Healthy At 60
Actor TED DANSON turned his life around at 60, by turning his back on meat and taking up exercise. The Cheers star marked his landmark birthday last month (Dec07) and took a personal vow to shed weight and get healthy. Showing off a svelte new look on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America on Wednesday (16Jan08), Danson said, "(First) I went after my cholesterol. I didn't want to take the meds, so I lowered it. "I went from 259 to 129 (pounds) with herbs and exercise; I've become vegan with some fish from time to time, and it works. I feel great."
