How Anthony Anderson Lost Weight

People change their bodies for a variety of reasons; some do it for health reasons, while others want to lose weight. Actor Anthony Anderson recently revealed the reason he decided to get rid of his extra pounds: His passion for cooking! The 57-year-old actor not only cooks his own food, but he also loves to experiment with new techniques and recipes. This is evident in his Twitter account, where he frequently shares his restaurant reviews and food-related photos. You’ll start to see a theme hereā€¦

Experimenting With New Techniques And Recipes

In an interview with The New York Times, Anderson explained that he initially gained weight as a way to cope with his parents’ divorce when he was a child. He had to leave home at a young age and lived with his mum, who didn’t have much time for cooking. As a result, he developed a taste for unhealthy foods and gained weight. But after deciding to get in shape for the filming of his latest movie, Strange Calls, Anderson changed his ways and started dieting. While he eats what he calls clean food and doesn’t deprive himself of any treats, he said that he doesn’t eat junk food and avoids buying food that is higher in fat and sugar. This naturally led him to experiment with new techniques and recipes; he tries out new things and shares the results with his followers.

Restaurant Reviews And Photos Of His Accommodation

In addition to his Twitter account, Anderson also has an Instagram account, @aaron_anderson, where he occasionally shares restaurant reviews and pictures of his accommodation. The reviews, as you’ll soon realize, are quite valuable considering he often visits busy restaurants without having much time to spare and sometimes even eats at non-food outlets like coffee shops and bookstores. Not many people are lucky enough to have the time to eat out and to review restaurants, so when Anderson does it, it’s like a gold mine!

Here are some of the best pictures and reviews he has shared on his Instagram account:

A Trip To Thailand

On July 13, 2019, Anderson shared a picture featuring him, his wife, and their twin daughters. The actor and his wife were on a luxurious vacation in Thailand, where they tried out new restaurants and ate whatever they wanted. The 39-year-old model and entrepreneur, Elsa Patience, looked proud as she held their daughters, while Anderson ate a green papaya salad with sweet basil. The picture served as a testament to their lovely family bond and Anderson’s love for Thailand. It also served as an advertisement for a culinary school in Chiang Mai called The School of Thai Cuisine. The couple visited the school earlier in the year and are interested in taking some of their daughter’s education in Thailand. (1)

The Benefits Of Travelling

On July 14, 2019, Anderson tweeted: “Thailand was absolutely wonderful. I felt a bit guilty leaving Korea but didn’t want to stay forever. I miss the food and the people.” The next day, he followed up with another tweet, “Thailand was absolutely wonderful. I felt a bit guilty leaving Korea but didn’t want to stay forever. I miss the food and the people.” Then, on July 18, he wrote, “@aaron_anderson: Travelling is good for you because it gives you a different perspective. It also allows you to discover things you might not have seen if you stayed in one place.” (2)

Experimenting With Spices

On July 20, 2019, Anderson shared a picture of himself trying out a new recipe. The photo depicted him holding a beater, mixing spices for his dish. On the top right corner of the photo, you can see an instructional panel with the spices listed. The panel also included information about how to best make your dish. He decided to experiment with different types of spices to see how they would work together. This is something he does frequently, as he often tells his followers to try new things and not be scared to experiment. (3)

The Benefits Of Travelling

On July 21, 2019, Anderson tweeted: “Tried this new recipe I found. It’s amazing. You should give it a try. It uses a lot of spices I didn’t have at home. It’s worth it.” The following day, he again tweeted about experimenting with new spices, this time with a recipe for spicy chicken tikka. On August 2, he tweeted, “I made some spicy chicken this weekend. It’s so good! I’m not sure if I told you this but I discovered a new way to make it spicy. It uses a lot of curry and chili peppers. I think you’ll like it.” (4)

Not only does travelling allow you to try new things and meet new people, but it also serves as a refresher; you get to eat what you know and love, but in a different way. One of the best things about this particular vacation was exploring different types of cuisine and being able to try out new recipes. It was a way of life change for the actor, who admits that he wasn’t happy with how he ate before he left Korea. He said: “There’s a lot of food that I miss; I haven’t had Pad See Ew in a long time. I really want to go back and try some of those delicious dishes.”

Eating Out

On August 9, 2019, Anderson reviewed a restaurant called Dtiger Dbang Grill in Seoul. In the tweet, he wrote: “@dtigerdbanggrill: Tonight’s dinner at @MisterJellyfish was a great success. Thank you for the inspiration.” The following day, he revisited Dtiger Dbang Grill and wrote: “@dtigerdbanggrill: The grilled eel was delish. I really liked this restaurant. They have the best atmosphere and the food is fantastic.” On August 13, he tweeted: “Just tried a new Korean restaurant and WOW. That meal was incredible. I hope you all try it out.” (5)

Dining Out

On August 19, 2019, Anderson shared a meal with his family at a Chinese restaurant in Los Angeles. The restaurant was called Fu Xi and it specialized in Sichuan cuisine. The actor didn’t eat there often, but when he did, it was one of his favorite places to go. In the caption of the photo, he wrote, “@fu_xi_la: We went to Fu Xi today, a Chinese restaurant in Chinatown. It’s one of my favorites. When I go there, I usually get the spicy chicken. It’s so good! Hope you all try it out.” (6)

Coffee And Ice Cream

On August 21, 2019, Anderson shared a photo of himself and his twin daughters enjoying coffee with ice cream. The photo showed the three of them sitting at a small table with their trays of ice cream, ready to dive into their sundaes. Coffee, milk, and chocolate are all vital for your health and nourishment. They provide you with antioxidants, proteins, and essential fats that your body needs. So next time you’re at a coffee shop, try out one of their delicious iced coffee concoctions. (7)

Strange Calls

On August 23, 2019, Anderson revealed the title and release date of his new movie in a tweet: “My new film #StrangeCalls will be out in theaters across America on September 25th. Go see it. I wish I could tell you more right now, but I need to keep this surprise for the end.” The following day, he continued, “It’s been a long time coming, but I’m so excited to finally share the title of my new film with you. It’s very family-friendly, so don’t worry about letting your kid(s) watch it.” (8)

The Ups And Downs Of Being An Actor

On August 24, 2019, Anderson tweeted: “You’ll come across plenty of ups and downs as an actor. There are good and bad times, but you have to stay positive and focus on your craft. It helps to have faith in your abilities and know that you’re doing your best. Sometimes it can feel like there’s nothing to look forward to. Life can feel chaotic when you don’t have control over your own schedule, but there are always opportunities out there if you keep your eyes open. You never know when something great may happen.” (9)
