‘There was a fat old guy,’ he told the website.
Pinchot cleaned out his pantry and fridge of all junk food, and now eats a vegan diet and does not exercise.
Initially the actor struggled with his new lifestyle, and had trouble falling asleep due to his hunger.
However, it all ended up paying off, and the results speak for themselves.

Not only that but he was able to fit into the clothing he wore starring on Perfect Strangers nearly 30 years ago.
‘I just took off my clothes and put them on and they fit,’ he told the site. ‘”I’m pretty sure I’m the only 61-year-old within a 10-mile radius that’s getting into his clothes from when he was a 26-year-old doing two aerobics classes a day.” And that feels pretty good. That feels pretty good.’
Pinchot was proud to show off the results on his Instagram account, where he posted a jaw-dropping before-and-after photo showcasing his weight loss.
