Big Time Weight Loss
Star of Nickelodeon’s hit show "Big Time Rush" loses 85 pounds in 7 months.
Los Angeles, CA- How do you lose 85 pounds? How do you drop 6 pant sizes? How do you change your life? Well if you’re Stephen Kramer Glickman (star of Nickelodeon’s hit TV show Big Time Rush) you eat healthy, you work out 5 days a week and you realize you can be a better version of yourself.
While shooting Big Time Movie in Canada last November, Stephen Kramer Glickman saw his weight balloon up to 350 pounds. In January, he decided to make a change in his life. Now, after only 7 months, Glickman has done what most overweight people only promise themselves they will do with a resolution every year. He has lost 85lbs in 7 months by working out with celebrity fitness trainer Eric the Trainer, and eating healthy food with food delivery service to the stars, Sunfare.
Glickman’s new routine is to wake up in the morning and have a big breakfast of eggs, grapefruit, chicken and veggies, then it’s off to the gym or to head out hiking in the Hollywood Hills. “The ’me’ from a year ago would punch this version of ’me’ in the face... if he could catch up,” he joked.
The producers and costume department from Nickelodeon have been very supportive, giving old costumes that no longer fit to the Salvation Army and buying Glickman a whole new wardrobe. One costumer was quoted as saying, “We are so proud of his weight loss! He went from a 5XL shirt to a 2XL shirt in one season of the show! We support good health here at Nickelodeon.”
Glickman’s Manager Josh Lieberman at 3 Arts Entertainment had this to say “He’s Lost so much weight and still kept the funny. We’re very excited for the new opportunities this presents.”
Clothing Company LRG, sponsors of Glickman since 2009, have had to outfit him in all new clothing for his personal life and couldn’t be happier. Jesse Fredd Jr., Marketing Genius for LRG Clothing, said, “We’re trying to put the spotlight where we think it really belongs, because it’s more than just clothing and concepts for us. We will continue to make Glickman look fresh. Now he just looks fresh in smaller sizes.”
“My health was starting to become a real concern at 350lbs. My family and my doctor were concerned,” Glickman said. “I always thought, well this is the way I look on TV, I could lose my career if I lost the weight. But since the weight loss, my work load has tripled. I am getting seen for parts now I only dreamed of 85lbs ago!”
“Glickman’s focus and drive is second to none and beneath the comedic surface lives a true athlete we are helping emerge” says Eric the Trainer, who has transformed such stars as Rachel Crow, Ethan Suplee, James Maslow, Kirstie Alley, Wayne Brady, Tito Ortiz, Kung Le, Big John McCarthy, and many more.
Glickman joked, “I’m getting all Jonah Hill up in this bitch!”
