"I'd get off of Roseanne every spring. I'd lose 60 pounds every spring," he said at the time. "Then I got too fond of the barleycorn. I'd gain it back and then some, every year. It's going to be an ongoing process for the rest of my life."

Matthew McConaughey's also had a major body transformation for his upcoming role in Gold. The Doctors' Dr. Travis Stork gave ET the rundown on the potential risks that come with celebrity yo-yo diets.

"In general with that rapid weight loss, you can get malnutrition -- certainly if you're not getting enough protein,"  Dr. Stork said. "[It can] even put you at risk for gallstones, which certainly anyone who's had them knows that's no fun."
