The 58-year-old actor says that he doesn't want to "go nuts" and lose more weight.

"The Price is Right" lost 80 lbs. in 2009. Why?

How did he get such amazing results?

"Basically no carbs, not even a cracker. No bread at all... No starches of any kind. Egg whites in the morning or Greek yogurt [and] some fruit."

Another huge perk to his dramatic weight-loss?
