MIKE & MOLLY star BILLY GARDELL is set to embark on a healthy new lifestyle - he's ready to lose weight and keep it off for good.

"I have learned slow is better for me. I have tried every crazy (kind) of diet, and it works for two or three weeks then I snap. Now that I am making a little bit more money, I might get myself a nutritionist, maybe a trainer, and take it a step at a time."
