Former ROSEANNE star JOHN GOODMAN has called in a nutritionist to help him shed some weight. The roly-poly actor, who currently weighs in at 400 lbs, has always made jokes about his girth - but close friends and family have persuaded him to seek health by reminding him his dad LESLIE died from a heart attack at the age of 36.
The 48-year-old's agent STAN ROSENFIELD says, "He's working with a nutritionist and he's losing weight, not gaining it. He's on the Zone diet and eating protein and vegetables."
