How did Andy Lose Weight?
Well, as it is. Reid hasn’t shared much information about his weight loss. When Reid was asked about the developments in his health, he said, “I’d probably just skip that. I’ll just leave it. I’m not much for talking about all that stuff. I wish it had never happened. It did. I appreciate the doctors for taking care of me. They were phenomenal.”
But he didn’t want to leave his friends disappointed, did he? So, when Andy was asked how did he lose weight, he replied jokingly, “I’ve lost a lot of human beings. I’ve had a lot of friends that have been hanging onto my love handles for a while.”
He added, “I’ve dropped them off every once in a while. This was just a small child. It was about 60 pounds we were able to drop off, and hopefully, he stays away.” Andy followed the diet plan that his team trainer suggested and it worked in his favor.
Talking about which, he said, “Some of our coaches got on a diet from our trainer, that our trainer gave them. They told me they were on this and I said, ‘You know what, I’ll jump on it with you, make it a contest.'”
