Ryan Seacrest is a great television host, entertaining and soothing radio broadcast personality, and overall one of the best to ever work in major entertainment media. Men’s Journal somehow was successful in its invitation to Mr. Seacrest to conduct an interview with the popular, million-plus-readership web and print publication a few years ago. Here’s a little bit of information the interview included.
Seacrest was once a very husky child
According to the Men’s Journal interview with Hollywood’s star personality and business mogul Ryan Seacrest, he “vividly” remembers that being overweight played a major part in his younger life. He remembers that he wouldn’t remove his shirt – sometimes multiple shirts – prior to going swimming like the rest of his friends did. Seacrest also shared that he greatly disliked going shopping in the “husky” section of department stores and clothiers; few of his childhood classmates couldn’t relate to what “husky” meant, which made Ryan feel like an outcast.
Further, the overweight Ryan (@ryanseacrest) often stuffed his proverbial pie hole as much as possible as a form of entertainment, as eating naturally releases “feel-good chemicals” in the brain. He felt terrible about abusing his body like this once he became a senior in high school.
“Remembering how I felt back then,” says Seacrest, “drives me to stay fit.” Men’s Journal’s transcribed interview with Ryan Seacrest also indicated that he felt a strong desire to never feel the guilt of being himself or looking-in on “normal” kids’ lives, effectively fueling his success in being fit.
Ryan’s rapid-yet-healthy weight loss as a young adult boosted his confidence manyfold
When Ryan Seacrest lost the weight, he carried all throughout childhood, he gained a measurable confidence boost as heavy as all the fat he lost. This helped build his rock-hard work ethic upon landing in Los Angeles after dropping out of a four-year university in an attempt to build his entertainment career.
