Tom Hanks adopts sugar-free diet

London: Actor Tom Hanks has adopted Alec Baldwin`s sugar-free diet after realising how healthy his friend has become by avoiding sweet snacks.

Baldwin`s new wife Hilaria is a yoga teacher and fitness expert and she changed the actor`s look by insisting he give up white sugar, and now Hanks is hoping that the simple weight-loss plan works for him as well.

"I ran into Alec Baldwin, who looks fabulous, and said, `Dude, your health is so fantastic`. And he said `Yeah. White sugar. I`m staying away from white sugar as much as I can`," quoted Hanks as saying.

"You get into your mid-50s and you find out you have high blood sugar, and you say, `What the f**k? Me? No.` But, yeah," he added.
