CLEVELAND — A fan favorite on the Browns, offensive tackle Joe Thomas played at around 312 pounds in his days with the team. Since retirement, however, Thomas has been shedding off pounds.

Fellow Browns alum and podcast co-host Andrew Hawkins shared a side-by-side transformation photo of Thomas and the difference is incredible.

Check out the before and after:

Thomas was hit with questions on Twitter about how he lost all the weight. He attributed his success to cardio, a keto diet and intermittent fasting.

Thomas also shared part of his workout routine, which includes swimming twice a week and practicing yoga.

About a year ago, Thomas shared how he maintained his high weight, attributing his ability to stay heavy to Girl Scout Cookies.

While Thomas' weight loss is impressive, a current Browns player had some criticisms.

Browns defensive end Myles Garrett took to Twitter to roast Thomas, but it was all in good fun.

Don't worry Joe, we don't think you have flamingo legs.
