(NEW YORK) — Pawn Stars fan-favorite Austin “Chumlee” Russell is all about making money for the store, but also all about losing weight…lots of weight.
The 31-year-old has lost 75 pounds, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
“I’m going to the gym six days a week,” he told the Review-Journal. “I’m eating right; [a] well-balanced diet. I drink a juice smoothie every morning.”
Russell added that losing his father was also an inspiration to shed the weight. “My dad died from pancreatic cancer at 54…I’m making sure I’m eating my vegetables and staying away from the red meat,” he said.
