Jonah Hill’s Weight Loss Journey
Jonah was thinking and trying to lose weight for a long time. However, the real opportunity came when the shoot for War Dogs was done. Hill had gained some extra pounds, adding yet to already huge weight, to play in the movie.
When the work was done he knew that it was the perfect time to get rid of the unhealthy pounds. To take this step, Jonah needed support. For this, he called his buddy and famous Hollywood star, Channing Tatum. “Hey, if I ate less and go to a trainer, will I get in better shape?” Hill asked Tatum.
Tatum obviously cheered his buddy up and replied “Yes”. The American actor has previously tried to lose weight in the past but couldn’t succeed. However, he made his mind this time and was very optimistic about it. Jonah worked on his diet and workout plan a lot.

Jonah’s Diet Plan
Even though he had the habit of overeating there was another factor that was causing exponential growth in Hill’s weight. It was his drinking habit. Hill admitted his weakness in the following way, “It’s so annoying because if I don’t drink beer, I get really thin, and then when I drink beer, I get a little bigger”.
Not sure about his “getting thinner” though but that “getting bigger” was on the point. So, first and foremost he had to defeat the demon of drinking. Hill knew that if he couldn’t get over the drinking habit then he would get even bigger.
The good thing is that Jonah succeeded in slaying the drinking demon. However, not completely. He now only drinks on occasion. “I still drink beer, that’s my Achilles’ heel,” Hill told in his interview.
With getting over his drinking habit, Jonah also got over his cravings for fast food. He substituted his fast-food consumption with the Japanese recipe, Sushi. It is a traditional Japanese dish of prepared vinegared rice, accompanied by a variety of ingredients and usually with some sugar and salt.
Hill limited the dairy products consumption as well. In place of eating high-calories food, Jonah transferred to a fruit and veggie diet. For lunch and dinner, he would have green vegetable salad, greek yogurt, chicken breast. And for breakfast, he would have a glass of gorge juice in place of tea or coffee. With these positive changes came positive results.
Jonah’s Workout Plan
Not only diet, but Hill also gave equal attention to his workout routine. He knew that controlling only his diet plan wouldn’t make much of a difference until he burned his calories and vice versa. Hill joined a gym where he would work out for more than an hour. He also started taking long walks in the morning while listening to music.
Before & After
As you can see a huge difference that Hill has made. His current weight is 185 lbs after losing 42 lbs (3 stone). However, formerly Jonah weighed about 230 lbs.
Jonah isn’t Comfortable with Rumors
Hill wrote on his Instagram, “I know you mean well, but I kindly ask that you not comment on my body. Good or bad I want to politely let you know it is not helpful and doesn’t feel good.”. After fighting obesity for months, Hill doesn’t want rumours to spread about his weight.
After struggling with being overweight, Hill has finally changed his appearance for the good of his health. After this transformation, HIll seems very optimistic and he should be. I hope that Jonah Hill’s weight loss story helps you in sorting out problems (if any) and gives you inspiration.
