Penn Jillette was instructed by his doctor to lose some weight to lessen the effects of high blood pressure, and that’s exactly what the magic man did! To the tune of 105 pounds!

The Wizard Wars judge seemed like half the man he used to be standing next to Knight Rider, David Hasselhoff.

Penn, 60, spoke to People about his amazing disappearing act:

“I was on six very powerful meds to bring the blood pressure down. My doctor said I needed to get my weight down, and if I brought it down 30 or 40 lbs. it would be a little easier to control. And then he said something in passing that completely blew my mind – he said, ‘If you got down to 230, you probably wouldn’t need any of the meds.'”

If you don’t remember, this is how Penn looked before he shed the poundage..
