Whilst most of us put on a few pounds when we're in love it sounds like romance has helped Glee's Cory Monteith lose the pounds as on and off screen girlfriend Lea Michele helps her man get in shape.
We always thought Cory, who plays Finn on the show, had a pretty hot bod but apparently he's been putting on a bit of weight recently.
A visit to his family gave him the motivation to change with a source telling Showbiz Spy: “When he brought Lea home to meet his family they were making fun of him in front of her."
"She’s tell him she loves him no matter what but it was bothering him and he did something about it,” a source said.
A little bit harsh of his fam perhaps but the teasing seemed to work with health freak Lea apparently appointing herself as Cory's weight less guru:
“She’s vegan and eats organic and she totally changed his eating habits. He’s exercising too. He loves the way he looks now.”
Cory himself recently cited cutting down on chocolate and more exercise as the key to his weight loss. “I’m doing CrossFit and I’m eating fewer Snickers bars." It goes both ways though as Cory also has a positive effect on Lea, and friends say they’ve noticed she is happier since she’s been with him:
“Cory is definitely having a positive effect on Lea. She’s much less miserable these days.”
We would hope so! With the new slim-line Cory to snuggle up to how could Lea not smile all day every day!
