    Actor John Goodman has lost 100 pounds.

    John Goodman has followed Drew Carey as the latest Hollywood big man to achieve a super-sized slimdown.

    The “Treme” actor told People he’s lost more than 100 pounds since cutting out drinking three years ago and hiring Serena Williams’ health coach, Mackie Shilstone.

    "I know it sounds sappy, but it was a waste," Goodman said. "It takes a lot of creative energy to sit on your ass and figure out what you're going to eat next ... I wanted to live life better."

    Goodman, 58, said he now avoids sugar entirely and works out six days a week.

    "I'm breaking a sweat but I'm not going nuts," he told People.

    The one-time “Roseanne” star has become fit enough to take on athletic roles, Shilstone told the magazine.

    Last week, comedian Drew Carey also credited daily workouts for helping him lose more than 80 pounds since January. Instead of sugar, the “Price is Right” host said he’d cut out all carbs.
