Tom Arnold talks weight loss

Cast of "The Kid & I" at AFI Fest 2005 presented by Audi Tom Arnold is starting 2014 a new man. The actor slimmed down significantly and he credits his son for the success.

Arnold completely changed his diet and managed to lose 89 pounds. He says that his son was his inspiration to start leading healthier lifestyle.

Tom became a first-time father at the age of 54 last April (13), after a long struggle with fertility issues and now he wants to do everything so he can take good care of little Jax.

He tells People magazine, “Something inside of me changed. I decided I didn’t want to live that way. I need to stretch fatherhood out as long as I can for my boy’s sake.”

Arnold, who has slimmed down to 198 pounds, works out twice a day and eats healthy. “I have the same thing for dinner every day: chicken and couscous. Fruit has started tasting good… I have tons more energy to play with my son,” he added.

    I am very happy to hear that Tom Arnold has changed his life drastically for the sake of his little son and his own longevity. It feels good to be healthy and lead a healthy and active life style. You cannot make a great father being fat and lazy. I support Tom Arnold in his change and I hope he moves on in his personal development.

    My deep appreciation to Tom Arnold for what he has achieved for his little son. Fathering changes men when they are truly ready for it and are willing this to happen in their lives. Tom was waiting for his fatherhood for so long and this baby was so much anticipated, that is why there are no wonders why it has affected Tom’s life style so drastically. Right choice, Tom, keep it up!
