Billy Crawford has been the talk of the town because of his extreme weight loss.
KAMI learned that the international star finally addressed the issues on his surprising leaner figure in an interview on "Tonight with Boy Abunda".
According to Billy, he had an unhealthy lifestyle before marrying Coleen Garcia. His drinking and smoking addiction worsen which is why his weight reached 235 lbs. Upon seeing the effects it did to his body and realizing his dream to become a father, the actor decided to change his lifestyle.
"Before, I would go home, watch TV. I drink a whole bottle of black by myself. It was that bad. 'Di ako masyado nalalasing but it got to that point where I carry it the next day. So, it affected me. Kaya ako lumobo ng lumobo"
"I want to be a father. I want to have a family. Gusto ko magkaroon ng pamilya in the future. And when God gave me Coleen, and everything started, I was like I was born again."
"So I had to do something seriously. I had to either take my job seriously, my health seriously. So I tried to lose the weight."
It can be recalled that the "It's Showtime" host shared on Instagram about his first anniversary of being alcohol-free. He also thanked his wife for being patient with him throughout his journey to sobriety.
"And yesterday was my first year anniv since I stopped drinking, not one lick since. Thanks so much my love for supporting me and being there when I'm irritated."
In the interview, Billy explained the said post.
"When you don't have alcohol, Tito Boy, and for 6 months you don't have sugar which is fruits, rice, pasta, bread, alcohol, you will shrink. You will lose the weight."
"I trimmed down and I tried to lose the weight for my health purpose, myself"
In an earlier report by KAMI, Billy Crawford thanked his wife Coleen Garcia for her support throughout his lifestyle change.
