Neil Patrick Harris takes of twenty two pounds. He is a well known actor, first recognized for his role as Doogie Howser M.D. and what forty old has said is that he took off a few pounds in last few months. The How I Met Your Mother star did so he could take on the lead role in the Broadway musical ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’. Speaking on ‘Live! With Kelly & Michael’, he said:
”I’m skinny. When I was filming ‘How I Met Your Mother’, I knew this show is coming up and it’s such a different type of role that for three or four months I’ve been doing nothing but cardio and trying to lose some weight … I lost about 22 lbs.”
Patrick and his fiance David Burtka, thirt five, share three year old twins twins Gideon and Harper together, he says he was able to achieve this by going with a healthier diet and eating at a different time.
”It was pretty much a combination of [diet and exercise]. I just stopped eating late. I was the kind of person who, after we put the kids down, we would go eat at like 9pm or 9.30pm. We would order food in and by the time we ate, it was 10ish. It’s easier with kids because kids eat dinner around 5.30 or 6pm. And we would just eat with them and I would try to not eat later.”
