Looks like Kevin McHale went from the glee club to the gym. In a recent interview with Us Weekly, the newly out actor shared the details of his 12-week weight loss journey.
“I had been working through an intestine and digestion issue that was eluding diagnosis and that really took a toll on me,” the 30-year-old told Us. “I was constantly in pain. I had tried so many different elimination diets—nothing was working. It got to the point where I was already feeling miserable because of the intestinal issues, plus the self-added guilt of not getting myself to the gym or eating as healthy as possible. It was a recipe for disaster.”
It was then that McHale decided to enlist professionals to help him make a drastic change, so he signed up for workout sessions with Ultimate Performance, a personal training-only studio in Los Angeles.

In addition to committing to a grueling workout schedule, McHale says he followed a balanced daily diet that included complex carbs, healthy fats, vegetables, and protein.
“I became obsessed with logging my food,” he said. “I’d also be rating my energy, sleep, and digestion each day. Knowing if I had a proper night’s sleep would directly correlate with how I was training and eating obviously, but when you track it for three months you can see trends and patterns—I loved it.”
