Goodman Staying Healthy After 400 Pound Shock

JOHN GOODMAN is committed to keeping his weight down because he was tired of "breaking the furniture" as a 400 pound (181.4 kilograms) big guy.
The actor showed off a slimmer new look during an appearance on U.S. TV show The Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday night (16Jun10), and spoke candidly about his weightloss battle.
Goodman blamed years of heavy drinking and overindulgence for packing on the pounds.
The former Roseanne star explained, "I hit it (alcohol) pretty hard for 30 years and there was a lot of residual damage... I'd get off of Roseanne every spring, I'd lose 60 pounds (27.2 kilograms)... Then I got too fond of the barley corn (beer) and then I'd just screw everything up, so then I'd gain it back and then some, every year."
But when he started tipping the scales at 400 pounds, Goodman knew it was time to take a drastic life and diet change - or die.
He embarked on a weightloss programme and he's motivated to maintain his smaller waistline, joking, "I was breaking furniture, for Lord's sake!"
The 58 year old admits it will be a fight he will always face, but he's committed to staying healthy: "(I'm) getting a lot of exercise, I feel great."
