There used to be more Ryan Seacrest

In tomorrow's issue of People magazine, American Idol and E! television host Ryan Seacrest reveals that he used to be quite pudgy. At age 13, he weighed 180 pounds because he was a junk food junkie. He says, "I was overweight because I used to come home and eat a cookie sheet of nachos and watch Oprah every day of my life." Oprah? Really? Seacrest says he used to be teased by his classmates about his weight (but not about Oprah?) and he dreaded going to the beach because he didn't want anyone to see him with his shirt off. Now Ryan is 157 pounds, he runs four miles a day, and has a personal chef. The upcoming article in People also includes diet secrets from other television stars like Leah Remini (King of Queens) and Kelly Osbourne. I would say the secret is already out: get rich so you can pay a personal trainer and a chef.
