Actor and comedian Craig Robinson has revealed he lost 50 pounds by going vegan and ditching alcohol.

Talking on Harry Connick Jr.'s talk show Harry, the celeb said that eating plant-based was 'so much easier than [he] thought it would be'.


Robinson told Connick Jr. that he started detoxifying his body in January.

He said: "I haven’t been drinking, since January I just put down the alcohol I was going to detox...I had heard, I don’t know how true it is, but I heard you can regenerate your liver in six months. 

"I was like let me see if I can go six months and I just haven't gone back and then working out, and I’ve been trying this vegan lifestyle too.

"I lost a bunch of weight. I lost 50 pounds."

The actor, who is currently starring in new comedy Ghosted, confessed that he misses mac and cheese.
