1. Ricky Gervais – British funnyman Ricky Gervais wasn’t laughing when he realized he was overweight. After a lifetime of being thin, at 30, years of laziness and physical inactivity caught up with the The Invention of Lying star.
Afraid that his lifestyle would kill him, he and his partner Jane Fallon chose to get in shape together. The Office creator and comedian lost over 1 ½ stone by running, doing 35-40 minutes of cardio, and weight-lifting for 20 minutes daily. He claims he hasn’t changed his eating habits much, but has simply gotten healthier by becoming more physically active.
