Wacky Weight Loss Tips? Japanese Diet Slims Down Hollywood Star for the Oscars

Feb 25, 2012
Wacky weight loss tips not for Jonah - Can he stay slim?

People trying to lose weight are at times so desperate they will try every wacky weight loss tip that is promoted and hyped.

One Hollywood star who has lost weight revealed he wanted to do some kind of crazy diet or work out plan or cleanse, but realized he should likely go another route and stick with a more disciplined plan.

Newly slimmed down and nominated for an Oscar for his role in the movie "Moneyball," Jonah Hill has revealed his weight loss is down to adhering to a Japanese diet.

The Academy Awards are scheduled for this weekend and all the stars will want to look slim on the red carpet for their photo perfect moment at the 84th Annual Academy Awards.

The 'Moneyball' actor - who has been sporting a newly-trim physique in recent months will be there looking fit - and recently admitted while he wishes a "genie" could have made him instantly slim, he sought advice from a nutritionist on how to lose weight sensibly.

He said: "It was just mostly diet. I wish there was some crazy thing that I did, like a pill or a genie or something.

"But I went to see a nutritionist and he told me what to eat to change my habits and stuff. I found that Japanese food was very helpful to me."

The 28-year-old star also explained part of his decision to lose weight was because he was keen to move on from the typically comic roles he had played in movies such as 'Get Him To The Greek' and 'Superbad' and into more serious parts.

Jonah added in an interview with ABC: "I just had a moment in my life where I said I wanted to become a man. And that means with my career, with my life and that also means with my health.'

"I'm almost 30 years old - I'm not a foul-mouthed seventeen-year-old kid who's trying to get laid or whatever. I'm an adult man who takes his work really seriously. I'm an actor, I'm not a comedian, I never was a comedian."
