When it comes to food, the American comedian is quite vocal, too. Back in June 2020, Kamel expressed his disappointment at a meal delivery service taking to Twitter. He wrote,
I signed up for a meal delivery service and today my dinner was a shrimp salad with strawberries and blackberries. That’s f&&ked up, right? Shrimp and berries? I’m an open-minded dude, but no. No.
I can’t bring myself to try it. Has anyone had a shrimp salad with berries? I want to lose weight and live longer, but not like this. There are no shrimp salads with berries in the grave.
I’ve been able to maintain my diet through all of this but if India and China keep shooting at each other I’m gonna use a rolled-up pizza as a funnel for Doritos.
In August of the same year, the 36-year-old flexed about his weight loss and the fact that he received a Damian Lillard jersey sent by Portland Trail Blazers. He credited chicken breasts and spinach for his slimmer physique, helping him fit into the shirt.
Also, shout out to chicken breasts and spinach for helping me squeeze into the Lillard jersey the Blazers sent me.

Most recently, Ian Karmel took to Twitter in February 2021, where he revealed a rather strange weight measuring metric. He wrote,
Been judging my weight loss based on football players and I’m now down to a small college offensive guard. Hoping to hit University of Miami linebacker by April.

Meanwhile, one fan wondered about the secrets to his amazing transformation, suggesting it might be keto diet. Karmel replied that it’s basically eating way less along with regular exercise.
During his latest appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Ian Karmel revealed he has undergone 120 pounds weight loss in less than a year.
Ian Karmel Revealed How He Spent His Quarantine Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic
— The Late Late Show with James Corden (@latelateshow) February 24, 2021
The 36-year-old comedian and writer for The Late Late Show With James Corden, Ian Karmel, resides in New York City with his roommate and fellow comedian Zak Toscani.
When asked what he had been eating during quarantine, Ian said:
I made a big soup. Outside of that, I’ve been alternating between delivery and just big, joyless salads, so I get vegetables.
When it comes to entertaining himself at home, the comedian watched a lot of romcoms for the first time ever.
As for music, he usually listened to lots of old reggae, but he himself is unsure as to why. Moreover, he tried getting into Pearl Jam, and it was kinda working!
When the question turned to hobbies, whether he picked up a new hobby or resumed an old one, during the quarantine, Ian said:
I’ve been working a lot still so far. I’m sure that will change soon—then I’ll find out which hobbies come back.
The most fun part arrived when the interviewer inquired about the weirdest thing he did during the quarantine. The television personality revealed:
I got really, really, really stoned and freestyle-rapped over a bunch of Pearl Jam songs. I was really feeling myself, too. I was thinking, “Dude, you’re really good at this,” while I was doing it.
Then the question shifted to how he keeps himself sane confined to a single place due to the need for self-isolation amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Karmel claimed:
I’m really good at being alone. I always have been. I’m very worried about everyone, but what’s being asked of me to help—staying inside—has been very easy for me so far.
The New York resident also spoke about how wishes to fly home to Portland, and go out to dinner with his family once coronavirus is over.
