Stephen Fry has lost five-and-a-half stone since April following his battle with prostate cancer, but says that he is “very happy”. Last year, the actor had his prostate removed after his diagnosis with the condition and urged “men of a certain age” to get tested for the disease. The actor is now cancer-free.
Divulging his slimming down secrets, the 61-year-old explained: “I walk a lot and that helps my mood as well, I find. It’s not a guaranteed help for mental stress and anxiety or anything else but it does help me.
He added: “I walk a lot and that helps my mood as well I find, it’s not a guaranteed help for mental stress and anxiety or anything else but it does help me and it means I can listen to audio books as I walk, and podcasts, and you eat up the miles that way, and talking of eating up, eating sensibly.”
Speaking of his mental health, Fry said that he has found that walking improves his overall mood.
