As Lawrence on the HBO series “Insecure,” Jay had to go through a tough fitness regime in order to match the fitness journey of his character. On the show, his character, Lawrence, was supposed to be training for a marathon.
Ever the professional, Jay said, “I didn’t feel like I was being honest to the character if I didn’t do it. And I wanted that challenge as an actor.” His hard work paid off — soon, he was running more than 18 miles a week and lost 15 pounds!
Jacob Batalon - 100 Pounds
For many, getting fit isn’t just about looking a certain way, it’s also about feeling physically well. “Spider-Man: No Way Home” actor Jacob Batalon remembered feeling “sleepy at work” and unable to do simple physical activities such as climbing up the stairs without losing his breath. This, combined with being embarrassed by how far he let himself go, propelled the actor to take charge of his health.
Jacob began eating a plant-based diet and working out six days a week, each session for an hour and a half. The hard work has certainly paid off!
Hilary Duff - 30 Pounds

The star acknowledges that while it has taken her a bit of time to get back into her pre-baby shape, she says, “I appreciate my body and what it's done for me.” She showed off all that hard work at the gym with a very revealing photo shoot for “Women’s Health” in 2022.
