It seems like it was only yesterday when Jonah Hill unveiled his 40 pound lighter frame. A frame that appears to be no longer. An insider told HollywoodLife.com
that the weight gain we are seeing is for a role he is currently playing and that it is, in fact, a body suit. I'm not so sure.
After his weight loss, Hill told ABC News
, “It was just mostly diet. I wish there was some crazy thing that I did, like a pill or a genie or something.” It appears he has given up on his diet. Another insider told In Touch
that "he was eating sushi when he lost weight but he’s gone back to his two biggest hang-ups; beer and burgers.”
None of this should be a shock to us. Most people who lose large amounts of weight regain it and sometimes even more. Nearly 65 percent of dieters return to their pre-dieting weight within three years, according to Gary Foster
, Ph.D., clinical director of the Weight and Eating Disorders Program at the University of Pennsylvania.
This happens everyday all over planet. This news is only shocking because he is doing it right in front of us. Jonah Hill is, unfortunately, a very visible example of this phenomenon.
The thing is, diet isn't enough. For years various sources have tried to sell us miracle products or miracle diets but they are never enough. In order to lose weight and keep it off, your entire lifestyle needs to change. You have to introduce an exercise routine, one that challenges you but also keeps you interested. You have address your emotional triggers in your personal life and your relationships. You have to make all the positive inner moves toward a better you. Only then, will your diet work long term.
