Wil Wheaton Weight Loss Journey 

A few years ago, actor Wil Wheaton himself realised he was gaining too much weight hence started a weight loss journey that has proven to be successful for him.

It all started in late 2013 after he was unable to fit into a classic men’s tuxedo he wanted to wear to a friend’s wedding. That was when he realised he had gained too much weight. His wife even acknowledged that she noticed that her stomach was getting bigger and his face getting heavier as well.

At the time he started his weight loss journey, he weight about 182 pounds which meant that he gained 17 pounds from the last time he checked. Quickly, he decided to cut down on junk foods, calories and exercise every day.

He eliminated the consumption of sweets, sodas, fast food, midnight cheese, beer, burritos, etc.

With the help of his wife’s brother, Wheaten installed an app on his phone that allowed him to track how much he was eating in terms of calories and the nutritional aspect of his meals as well. He made sure he wasn’t taking more than one pint of beer a day and wouldn’t eat burritos more than twice a week.

How Much Weight Did Wil Wheaton Lose?

Wheaton lost about 20 pounds within the first three months of his weight loss journey. He weighed about 182 pounds when he started his weight loss journey and in three months time was around 163.2 pounds.
