'Teen Mom' Star Gary Shirley Becomes an Even Bigger 'Loser'

gary shirley teen momEvery time I hear about a celebrity diet, I seriously want to pull my hair out. From Snooki's diet pills to shots of pregnancy hormones, I swear, the whole country's gone mad with quick fix ways to drop pounds hard and fast. Of course, you'd think anyone who stars on a reality show would be the worst offender of crazy dieting, but that's not the case for Gary Shirley, aka Teen Mom Amber Portwood's baby daddy.

Gary's one of those teddy bear guys (kinda reminds me of Turtle on Entourage), but he's not so keen on that image anymore. In fact, it sounds like he's determined to get in shape for the summer, and he's been tweeting updates that shed light on his unique weight loss plan ...

Yesterday, Gary tweeted:

Just had my total cereal and off to the YMCA. I'm not gonna lie I'm soar (sic). Just cause its been so long but not stopping.

More from The Stir: Gary Shirley of 'Teen Mom' Actually Has Women Competing for Him. No Joke.

He also revealed that he's been eating big, healthy salads, like one that includes "1 dark red 2mato, 1 box of raisins/or cran, grilled piece of chic ... some green and red salad, fat free Italian." Some of the ingredients even come from his own garden. Because he wants to try to eat homegrown fruits and veggies.

Check out this insane list of the fruits and veggies he planted:

Watermelon,cantaloupe, green peppers, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, onions, cayenne peppers, green chilies zucchini 72 each just finished.

Wow! Color me impressed! Now, that is how a healthy lifestyle is DONE! Not only is the guy focusing on whole foods, but it sounds like he's sort of "designing" his own weight loss plan, one that suits his tastes and his preferences as far as diet and exercise go.

It's funny ... a lot of guys seem to be pros at that. When he wants to get in shape, my fiance will start cutting his portions in half, have no trouble cutting out all the junk, work out without even meaning to (like he goes and throws a football around with his brother and effortlessly works up a sweat), then voila! -- there go the pounds! Yeah, part of that is because of he's a guy. But I also feel like we ladies could stand to learn a thing or two from these men! Start eating we love to eat (within healthy reason) and doing what we love to do for exercise, as opposed to what we think we're supposed to eat and do. 

Anyway, Gary sounds like he's on the right track. If he keeps up his self-designed plan, I'm sure he'll hit his goal once summer is here!

Do you think Gary's destined for weight loss success?

I wouldn't call him one of those"lovable teddy bear guys".Doesn't anyone remember the first season of teen mom?He was a gigantic a**hole and I actually felt sorry for Amber.She was an underage teen and he was an adult having unprotected sex with her while living with his mother.Gross!He walked out on her(the underage mother of his child) every time she even looked at him wrong.It's too bad she wasn't able to control her temper later on.He would have driven even the most patient woman to the brink of insanity.Fat or skinny,he's still a loser

Get over it, please.  I grew up in the 70's and it was hardly a mortal sin when a 16 yr old was dating a 19yr old.  No one went crazy or tried to lock up the guy.

My late mother met my father on a blind date.  She was 15, he was 18.  They married when she was 19.  My father was not a loser or a perv....thank you very much you judgmental witches.

Yes, he absolutely WAS a dick. But that was a few years ago, and he was, what? 18? It's called maturity, and most people go through it as his age. He did some inexcusable things (the only one I can really remember was buying a $600 PS3 when they were barely scraping by even before the baby was born), but it's been over 3 years. Let's judge him on who he is now, not who he was.

Good for him!!  I wish him much success.

He makes me sick. He knows he did wrong by take Leah and not bringing her back. Then he was nasty to Amber, deliberately, so she socked him, like anyone would. She barely touched his huge body and went to jail. Never should have happened. HE should have gone to jail for kidnapping.

Abuse is wrong, no matter the circumstance. I don't care what the situation is, you never have the right to harm someone else.

I'm confused on why the title is calling him a Bigger "Loser" if the entire article was giving him props for his diet.

Rissa....have you never seen the show "the biggest loser" it's a play on words about losing weight =]

I'm glad he's doing right by himself and wanting to get healthy....regardless of who he is as a person everyone should have the want to make themselves better and he's got many years to come to grow up so it's good to see him taking a mature step towards being healthy at least! =]
