Known for memorable roles in projects like The Office, Hot Tub Time Machine, Knocked Up, Pineapple Express and Mr. Robot, actor and comedian Craig Robinson has always played stocky, lovable “big guy” characters. But now that he’s lost weight, there’s even more–or less–of him to love.

“There are so many great vegan restaurants and dishes,” Robinson said. “It’s much easier than I thought it would be.”

“I lost a bunch of weight. I lost about 50 pounds,” Robinson told Harry Connick Jr. during an appearance on his talk show “Harry.” The 48-year-old explained that the weight loss and drastic diet change was kick-started by taking a break from booze. “I haven’t been drinking. Since January I just put down the alcohol. I was going to detox,” he continued. “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.”
