has been seen about and about more than usual…or maybe people are just noticing that there’s so much less of him to be seen. Carey’s kept pretty much the same shtick for years now – the lovable schlub with a crewcut, thick glasses, and hefty build – but he’s showing off a new svelte physique that he attributes to a strict no-carb diet and tons of exercise:

“No carbs. I have cheated a couple times, but basically no carbs, not even a cracker. No bread at all. No pizza, nothing. No corn, no beans, no starches of any kind. Egg whites in the morning or like, Greek yogurt, cut some fruit. I’m not diabetic anymore. No medication needed. I like being skinny. I was sick of being fat on the camera. Really, I just got sick of it.”

Carey is said to have lost 80 pounds, which is like getting to dump a kindergartner you’ve been carrying around for a few years. (Although at that point your problem is less about weight and more about why you’re constantly lugging a small child.) Good for him for doing what he needs to in order to be healthy, and not trying to fake his way through it, either. Congrats, Drew, even if you do sort of look like Orville Redenbacher now.
