Does anybody know the weight loss program BILLY BOB THORNTON used?

I mean, this guy was pretty big - his roles in Tombstone, U-Turn, and Sling Blade show it - and then in 1998 lost all the weight for his role in A Simple Plan........and the guy managed to keep the weight off all these years.

You can be blunt by telling me the guy just ate right and exercised, but I'm sure there was more to it than that.

Based on how he was acting in the thread in Music Talk, I doubt that even he knows how he did it!

Not sure what he's using for weight loss but he's using something that makes him a wacked out obnoxious prick:

That's probably it. If there is anything I've learned about drugs (both prescription and illegal) it is that 1. Cocaine is the best weight loss supplement you can take and 2. Steroids is the best muscle gaining supplement you can take.

Essentially, any body issues you may have can be solved with cocaine or steroids, depending on your goals.

Cocaine did very little good for Chris Farley or John Belushi

It's no guarantee.

Wasn't it Eric Clapton who said that poor junkies get skinny, but rick junkies get fat? I know "Slowhand" put on a lot of weight while chasing the dragon.

It's rumored that he only eats foods that are colored orange. I've seen that statement around over the years...

[billy bob] uhhhh....I don't understand....would you ask Tom Petty that question? Would you ask Tom Petty how he lost weight? You were specifically told not to bring up questions that weren't about my music. [/billy bob]

He has a heart condition. Diagnosed in early years of Hollywood. He is on a vegan type diet and has allergies to wheat and milk. So itís a necessity diet that has kept him thin.

Re: Does anybody know the weight loss program BILLY BOB THORNTON used?

That has to be the strangest nine-year bump in the history of this forum. I have to wonder : Did kd1985 just find out this fact and then do a Forum Search to see if it had ever been discussed here before, or has he been investigating and searching for the answer for nine years and just found the truth now?

It's from Google searches.

It's also possible that these new members will become friendly, and will eventually ask us to join their alt-right militia.
