The Blind Side Actor Quinton Aaron Loses Almost 100 Pounds

The actor famously starred alongside Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side

The Blind Side Actor Quinton Aaron has revealed how he's lost almost 100 pounds (seven stone).

I think it's safe to say that many of us put on a few pounds during the pandemic and Quinton was no different, as he explained his binge eating habits to TMZ.

The 6 feet 8 inches tall actor developed a craving for chocolate and would start his mornings by having two jumbo-sized KitKat packs along with a couple packs of Reese's.

Quinton would also always finish his order with a chocolate dessert if he went out.

I mean, don't we all?

However, with the addition of added bread, sometimes coupled with two large sandwiches in a single sitting, the actor has decided to make a change to his diet.

He told the publication that he doesn't want it to get in the way of his professional goals, with regards to his production company and music.

"I used the new year as a way to get a new me," he said.

The actor revealed that he went from he went from a 559 pounds to 462 lbs, losing almost 100 pounds in the process.

His strategy was cutting out the chocolate and bread from his diet.

Paired with a keto diet, he replaces the complex carbs with salads for lunch.

Walking and stretches have helped him shred the pounds off, along with fasting.

Quinton's aim is to loose another 64 lbs (4.6 stone) by 10 May to honour his late mom on her birthday, which will get him to the same weight during the filming of The Blind Side in 2009.

His eventual goal is to get between 300-325 pounds (21.4-23.2 stone).


Keep it up mate.

Quinton won't be the first or the last celeb to undergo a body transformation.

The Only Way Is Essex star James Argent admitted his body ballooned out to an unhealthy level and he wanted to start the new year with a brand new look.

He's now revealed how dramatically different he looks following surgery.

Writing on Instagram, Arg said: "After being 27 stone (171kg), depressed and having doctors telling me I was on 'death row' I made the decision to have gastric sleeve surgery with @wearetransform which reduced the size of my stomach and limited how much I could eat.

"I've since lost a total of 13 (82.5 kg) stone and now weigh 14 stone (90kg) which surpassed all expectations.

'I've never felt happier or healthier.

"I can honestly say that it was the best decision I've ever made. It spurred me on to be serious about my eating habits and exercise."
