The star of the new series Ghosted talked about his slimmer physique on Harry Connick Jr.’s talk show, Harry. “I lost a bunch of weight, I lost about 50 lbs.,” Robinson, 45, says. The former The Office actor says his weight loss started as an experiment. “I haven’t been drinking,” Robinson explains. “Since January I just put down the alcohol, I was going to detox. I had heard, I don’t know how true it is, but I heard you can regenerate your liver in six months. I was like let me see if I can go six months and I just haven’t gone back.” Vivien Killilea/WireImage; Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic And his alcohol detox inspired other healthy habits. “[I’m] working out and I’ve been trying this vegan lifestyle too. It’s amazing,” Robinson says. “There are so many great vegan restaurant and dishes. It’s much easier than I thought it would be.” Still, he does miss one dairy-filled dish. “Mac and cheese,” Robinson says without hesitation.
