Alec Baldwin decided to change his lifestyle when he was told by doctors that he was at risk for diabetes. The actor completely changed his diet, starting by staying away from sugar.
"When they put it to me in terms of being ill -- I drink soy milk now -- and they said to me that your problem is that you're pre-diabetic and you're never going to lose weight until you embrace that sugar is a toxin for you, everything changed overnight," Baldwin told USA Today. "I've eaten sugar in some fruit. I just try to eat berries. Candy, gum, mints, ice cream, cake, pie, that's all gone. I lost 35 pounds."
Tom Hanks recently admitted that he also wants to adopt Baldwin's diet for the health benefits.
