From Khloe Kardashian, who used her turbulent divorce to Lamar Odom as motivation to stop turning to unhealthy foods to the barely recognisable Mama June, who managed to drop almost 150kg in a year, it's official: these A-listers have endured a whole range of workout routines, diets and, for some, even surgery to became their healthiest, happiest selves yet.

This isn’t the first time Zach’s new look has caught the attention of Hollywood, with the actor once even telling talkshow host Conan O’Brien that his weightloss is all down to quitting drinking and enjoying long walks.

"I stopped drinking and I just kind of put the weight off,” he told Conan in 2014.
