Jeff Garlin's Weight Loss Journey Via Pilates
Jeff Garlin, one of the stars of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, and deems himself a culinary addict.
The 59-year-old explained that food satisfaction is modest, not because ice cream or macaroni and cheese aren't tasty, but because you are doing it to suppress feelings.
That is the real cause, So, there's never enough, he stresses. Garlin has struggled with portion restriction since he was a child, and he discusses it in his memoir.
In an interview with Elizabeth Vargas, the actor shared his formative bond with food stating:
When I was growing up -- my mom's not going to like this, but this is what it was -- she would make us pasta, and then put the bowl on the table. We'd have our serving, our normal-sized serving, and then there's a bowl. So, just keep on piling it on and piling it on.
When questioned if his food obsession is the result of a lack of determination, Garlin mentioned how just about everyone believes it's willpower, since it's sort of been taught in us through the years that it's self-control, that it's you, your vulnerability.
The actor added it's not an issue of frailty; it's got nothing to do with it. It's both an addiction and an illness.
When Garlin graduated from high school, he immediately began studying filmmaking at Miami University of Ohio, where he started doing stand-up comedy.
In fact, Garlin, a Second City Theatre veteran, has traveled the country as a stand-up performer.
On a personal front, Jeff was married to his wife Marla for over two decades before divorcing in 2020. The actor had a stroke at the age of 37, while Marla was expecting their second child. It was incredibly tough and that was a pretty rough period for them, Marla recalls.
When it comes to fitness, health, and well-being, Garlin's been trying a different approach by doing Pilates. He said,
I don't believe in dieting, and I will never diet. I don't diet. I eat very healthy, and I exercise. I'm trying to be a person who lives healthily both emotionally and physically in the world.
Back in 2010, the then 47-year-old wrote a memoir entitled My Footprint: Carrying the Weight of the World detailing his weight loss experience.
