Well, pre-diabetes is a condition when the levels of blood sugar of a person become higher than the normal but not high enough to be called diabetes Type 2, a serious diabetes level. Doctors report the majority of people diagnosed with the condition of pre-diabetes are not even aware that they have it.

The only time, he was enjoying sugar was when he ate fruits. In an interview, the actor said, he would only eat some fruits and berries. Besides, he also cut off other high carbs foods such as pasta, bread, snacks, and other junk food. But, Baldwin is a big fan of sushi though.
Consuming high carbs is also one of the reasons behind the rise of high blood sugar, diabetes, and weight gain. But with the proper maintenance and balance of his diet, Alec was able to lose a mind-blowing of 30 Ibs in only four months.
Wife Hilaria Baldwin Was Baldwin's Biggest Motivator

Luckily for Baldwin, he had the support of Hilaria who is a yoga instructor. The actor has opened up several times revealing how his wife motivated him throughout the journey.
It was , however, the Pilates and spins that helped Alec with his weight loss transformation though. The actor says he didn't perform yoga much. But his wife was there to help him in every possible way. Speaking of his wife, the actor once said:
"My wife -- I'm very lucky they can't have my wife because she's mine -- is a very wise beyond her years and disciplined person. She's helped me. Food is for fuel. We try to access food that is good and that we enjoy."
It's been near seven years since Baldwin embarked on his weight loss journey, and impressively enough, the actor still looks as fabulous as ever.
