Superproducer Mark Ronson finally managed to shed his excess pounds by ditching his workout regime and committing to a booze-free diet instead.
The British studio whizz had become frustrated at his inability to achieve a washboard stomach and struggled to understand why constant trips to the gym failed to help.
He gave up drinking booze last year (14) and within just three months, he was shocked to discover he had finally achieved his ideal body shape without resorting to rigorous workouts.
Ronson tells The Sunday Times Style magazine, "All that half-a**ed going to the gym I've done my whole life, that has never really changed having that little gut. Not drinking is probably the key I was missing all along."
