Former My Name Is Earl star has quietly lost a staggering 200lbs over the last 11 years.

And with no fad diets or surgeries in sight many have wondered how he did it.
But now the 34-year-old actor, who is a shadow of his former self, has revealed his weight loss secret.

The American actor said that he simply hops on his bicycle.

'I ride road bikes,' he told TMZ. 'I wear Spandex and everything.'

Suplee's gradual weight loss has been apparent for several years, but when he stepped on the red-carpet last October to promote his film Unstoppable, there was no denying there had been of a significant transformation.

Swapping the baggy tracksuits of old for a slimline pinstripe suit, he looked incredible.

His decision to lose the weight spawned from a bet he made with director Kevin Smith that he would lose more weight than him in 10 years after filming comedy hit Mallrats.

Ethan won the bet.

The funny man got his first big break into acting when he landed a role in Smith's black comedy, alongside his fellow My Name is Earl cast mate, Jason Lee.

He then went on to appear in two more Smith films, Chasing Amy and Dogma.

The New York born actor has also starred in American History X, Remember The Titans, and Boy Meets World, and played Johnny Depp's drug dealing partner and pal Tuna in the hit film, Blow.

In My Name Is Earl he played Earl's younger brother Randy Hicky.

The show also starred actress Jaime Pressly who played Joy, the trailer trash ex-wife of the main character Earl.

The television comedy ended in May 2009 after running for four seasons.
