Zach has kept us entertained by his mind-blowing movies such as Due Date, The Hangover Trilogy, and Masterminds. He has been making us laugh for a very long time. Although he is still that funny guy Zach has changed his appearance a lot.
At the Emmy’s, when Galifianakis appeared on the red carpet, everyone was shocked. It was not the old overweight Zach that everyone was looking at. Rather, he was very lighter than before. When asked about what did he do to his body, Zach answered “I’ve lost 50 Pounds”.
This statement left his fans confused. Some were worried about his health, others thought that it was one of Zach’s jokes. Let’s dive into the truth and find out what’s the story behind Zach’s 50 pounds.
How did Zach Lose Weight?
Considerable insight into Zach’s weight loss tells us that Galifianakis has been busy losing pounds since 2013. However, as it seems he wasn’t focusing on the real problem. The main reason for Zach’s being fat was his drinking habits.
He is fond of alcohol. And that’s why his weight increased so much. However, the good news is that he has overcome this habit and has successfully lost 50 pounds. “I stopped drinking and I just, kind of, put the weight off,” Galifianakis told the interviewer. He continued, “I was having a lot of vodka with sausage. Delicious, but bad for you”.
Avoiding drinking can really help you in losing extra weight. Since alcohol makes you tired and also makes you sleepy it’s the main reason why drinker ends up consuming extra calories. Zach now keeps away from drinking excessive vodka. But, occasional parties are a thing of enjoyment.

Before & After
Before leaving alcohol, Zach weighed around 240 pounds. However, after giving up alcohol for the good of his health and losing 50 pounds, he now weighs 190 Pounds.
It’s a good thing that Zach is finally taking responsibility for his health. We want him to stay healthy for the sake of his health as well as for making other funny movies. I hope that he stays this way and keeps sharing happiness through his talent.
