About Jerod Mixon

Jerod Mixon is an American actor, comedian, producer and writer. He is best known for portraying Weensie in Old School. [1]

Mixon was born on 24th May 1981 in Port Hueneme, California, USA. [2]

Due to his large proportion, he mostly plays funny obese characters in mainstream comedies. [3]

He is recognized for his work in the film Me, Myself & Irene, which starred Jim Carrey. [4]

He is the older brother of actor Jamal Mixon. [1] He and his brother co-starred in the ensemble comedy The Cookout. [4]

Due to his excess body weight, his health suffers a lot. Mixon started to feel unwell. At one point Mixon reached 300 lbs (136 kg) body weight and his maximum weight comes from fat. 

His doctor told him that his weight could be his biggest life threat. [5]

On the other hand, he wanted to perform other roles too. But due to his excess weight, Mixon faced serious fat-shaming in the industry.

But at first, Mixon was not motivated enough to lose weight. Because due to his big fat body size, he easily gets comic role in movies.

However, when his health demands a transformation, Mixon finally decided to lose weight.

About Weight Loss

Weight loss is a process of losing body weight by reducing the amount of body fat and/or muscle mass. [6]

Weight loss can be intentional, as when someone actively tries to lose weight through diet, exercise, or other weight loss strategies, or it can be unintentional, as when someone loses weight due to illness or other health conditions. [7]

Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is important for overall health and well-being. 

Being overweight or obese can increase the risk of a number of health problems, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers. [8]

There are different approaches to weight loss, including diet and exercise, weight loss medication, and weight loss surgery. [9]

It is essential to choose a weight loss approach that is safe, effective, and sustainable in the long term. 

It is also important to consult with a medical professional before starting any new diet or weight loss program.

Now, let’s come to the main topic of this article. 🧐

Jerod Mixon Weight Loss

In the previous section, I have explained how Jerod Mixon faced some serious personal and professional difficulties due to his excess body weight.

Jerod Mixon used to eat a lot of sugary foods and processed foods. He also became an alcoholic to get rid of stress. [10]

Furthermore, he didn’t perform any type of physical activity, which will eventually cause more weight gain. At one point, he wasn’t able to walk properly and sleep properly due to his excess weight. [11]

However, when Mixon reached a point where weight loss is the only option to survive, he decided to act. [12]

Although Mixon didn’t share his weight loss journey publicly, I can assume that he worked so hard in the gym to lose such a massive pile of fat in less than one year. 

He also changed his eating habits to burn body fat and prevent further weight gain.

Evidence also showed that diet and workout is the only natural way to lose weight. [13] [14]

Currently, Mixon’s weight is remarkably under control.

I can’t get more information about his weight loss. If you know anything about his weight loss transformation, feel free to share in the comment section.
