From Zach Galifianakis to Rick Ross, several male celebrities have made major changes to improve their health and bodies. By trading junk foods and inactive lifestyles for strict meal plans and weekly exercise routines, check out the guys who made dramatic body transformations.
For years, Maybach Music Group founder Rick Ross proudly flexed his man curves — usually while shirtless– in music videos, on stage and even during photo shoots.
But that has all changed! The biggest boss Ross has visibly slimmed downed over the past several months. And he appears to be a lot healthier and happier in his fitter body.
Once known for his slim figure, Pete Wentz appears to have packed on some extra muscle over the past few months.
He recently showed off his broader figure during a visit to the pumpkin patch with his son Bronx.
Rapper Paul Wall, who had a string of hits in the early 2000s, kept much of his body masked under tall T-shirts and baggy jeans.
But when The People’s Champ stepped back into the spotlight in 2010, he looked like a totally different man. Wall and his wife took on the challenge of losing weight together and the results were pretty amazing.
John Mayer is known for his yo-yoing weight.
But the leaner look he’s recently been sporting has received quite the rave reviews from his fans.
He’s typically shrouded in T-shirts and loose-fitting denim, leaving many unsure what type of body Drake was hiding underneath all those layers.
So it's easy to understand why Drake caused quite the stir on social media when he posted this gym selfie last year.
Carson Daly was every teen's best friend as the host of the hit 90's MTV video countdown show, TRL.
We all loved him for just being Carson. However, when he began whittling down the pounds, Daly’s body transformation was impossible to ignore.

His years of experiece in the industry were already intimidating. But the addition of a rock solid figure makes him appear quite unstoppable.

Jacobs told I-D that problems with stomach digestion and his intestine motivated him to get in better shape. He said he lost the weight by sticking to a strict eating and exercise plan.
The Today weatherman Al Roker is a standout example of adopting healthy lifestyle changes and sticking to them.
He elected to have gastric bypass surgery in 2002. And he has maintained his slim figure years after the procedure.
According to magazine reports, Entourage actor Jerry Ferrara dropped around 50 pounds back in 2011, completely changing his look.
Ferrara told HuffPost Live that he made the decision to drop the weight due to his concerns about his health.
The Game kicked off 2013 with plans to lose weight in time for Valentine's Day. And the rapper made quite the progress in just the first 60 days of his plan.
The Game has tracked much of his fitness journey on Instagram, adding an impressive amount of muscle since beginning his new workout regimen.
Josh Peck shocked fans when he debuted his slimmer look several years ago.
The child star, known for his role in Nickelodeon’s Drake and Josh, said that he made the decision to drop the pounds in order to improve his life.
Shia LaBeouf filled out his frame once he exited his role as the annoying younger brother of Christy Carlson Romano on Disney’s Even Stevens.
LeBeouf has put on muscle for several movie roles, maintaining his build with a set diet and daily workouts. When he was gaining weight for the film Lawless, LaBeouf told The Tonight Show that he’d wake up in the middle of the night to drink protein shakes.
In the early 2000s, Craig David was known for his smooth vocals and endless collection of beanies and track jackets.
But these days, the singer is better known for his rippled physique. Speaking to Men’s Health UK, David said he is currently in the best shape of his life.
Zach Galifianakis has made quite the career off of his hilarious personality and addictive charm.

But the leading man took his health to equal heights when he began his weight loss journey a couple of years ago. And he still looks exceptional.
