Drew Carey: Dieting Saved My Life

Originally posted 09/24/2010 06:55PM

For newly slim, Drew Carey losing weight was a heavy decision.

"I always thought I was going to die before I was 60," the comedian, 52, tells Parade Magazine this week. "My father died of a heart attack in his 40s. I'm not an idiot. The writing was on the wall."

Not wanting to fall victim to the heart disease that runs in his family, the Price Is Right host traded his "daily hamburger" for a healthy lifestyle of good nutrition, daily exercise and willpower.

Dropping more then 70 lbs. since November, Carey now weighs in at 182 and is still working towards his goal – weighing 170 lbs. by Oct. 31.

How Gwyneth Came to Name Her Baby Apple

EXPLAINED: Forget the computer company and the Beatles' publishing company as influences. Gwyneth Paltrow, 31, and Coldplay's Chris Martin, 27, were inspired by a friend to name their new baby girl (born Friday) Apple, reports Access Hollywood. Apparently, Martin's North American booking agent, Marty Diamond, has a daughter named Apple, and the couple asked his permission to give their child the same first name if they had a girl. As previously deciphered, the baby's middle names, Blythe and Alison, are the names of Paltrow's and Martin's mothers, respectively.
