At age 32, weighing 525 pounds, David Caruso knew he was close to death. After a series of distressing wake-up calls, David managed to lose 305 pounds in just one year by radically changing his diet and adopting a rigorous exercise regimen. In 2003, at a svelte 220 pounds, David appeared on The Oprah Show to show off his new look. In celebration of his incredible accomplishment, Oprah surprised David with the gift of a brand—new Porsche—a car he says he wouldn't have even been able to fit into just one year earlier!
