The viewers of the movie were really shocked with his new looks in his latest release, with his new, slim, and fit body, even though they should not have been because the drastic and impressive transformation that the actor underwent is definitely not recent. He has been at it for years and though he looks like he might have reached his ideal weight now (because he looks perfect), he has been on a weight loss journey for the past few years.
If you had missed that, you were in for a surprise with his new body because Lil Rel Howery was really overweight at one point of time. He was massive and whenever we thought of him, we always pictured him with his huge body. He never discussed his weight, never talked about losing it, and really never showed any inclination toward losing weight. So, his weight loss being revealed in Vacation Friends 2 might have stunned those people who have not been keeping up with him.
Lil Rel Howery Was Motivated By a Movie to Work on His Weight Loss!
Lil Rel Howery looked noticeably different from the first installment of the movie which came out in 2021. By that time, he had already gotten started on his weight loss journey but he had not really gotten as slim as he is now. His body was kind of work-in-progress at that time. As for now, it looks like he is now done progressing. He looks like he has lost all the weight he can and the only thing he has to do is maintain his weight.

The comedian looks very thin and fit compared to before. He seems much fitter and healthier as well. He does not look like the kind of person who would struggle to breathe while he walked. The physical transformation is impressive and has sparked curiosity among the viewers regarding how he pulled it off because going from being an obese person to a slender and fit one can't have been an easy journey. Also, because the change happened over a period of several years, people can tell he had a natural weight loss. He did not have surgery or something like that.
So, fans are not just impressed, they are also curious about Lil Rel Howery's diet routine and workout schedule. They are interested to know what he ate and what he avoided. They also want to know what kinds of exercise he did. Did he go to the gym or did he just work out in the home by himself? Also, what prompted him to embark on a weight loss journey, and what motivated him to stay in that path?
Well, Lil Rel Howery has not opened up about his diet and exercise routine (he has not acknowledged his weight loss recently) but he did share that it was a lot of hard work and also about what motivated him to lose weight back in 2020. He said that he just wanted to feel better and have more energy and that's why he embarked on a weight loss journey. He made a post on Instagram, writing:
I been getting a lot of compliments for my weight loss but it’s a lot of hard work. I was motivated by the movie I did Brittany Runs A Marathon that’s on Amazon Prime if you haven’t seen it. Honestly just wanted to feel better and have more energy for all the films I shot last year. My advice is to do it for you and no one else. Go at your pace and do what works for you. Make it part of your lifestyle. But do you!!!!
