Ed Powers knows something about timing, after he began a transformation in 2008. “My blood sugar was so high that I should have been in a coma,” he says, reflecting on what he refers to as his “wake up call.” After years of allowing his physical condition to deteriorate, he reached a point where he had to make a decision to change, or he would not have been around much longer. And with what he insists was the help of a “Higher Power” behind it all, he made lifestyle changes that have him re-energized and ready to return to the screen, nearly six years after he began his long hiatus.
In order to fully appreciate that transformation, one must go back to 2008 for the “before” in this tale. In Dirty Debutantes 2007 Volume 369, Ed had reached a low point physically, mentally, and emotionally. “I was lethargic. I could hardly bend my knees.” He also said that he suffered from bouts of depression and anxiety. His performance on screen was difficult, and he knew something was wrong.
If the story ended there, it would be a depressing tale. Fortunately, the Ed Powers story – the story as it is playing out today – is not a tale of failure and despair. It’s a story of how Ed took on the challenge of revamping his lifestyle and, so far, has succeeded. The “Dirty Old Man” of porn lost close to 150 pounds, started working out, got his blood sugar under control, and made a comeback to the screen in a brand new body.
In fact, Ed has a brand new problem: “I don’t want to get too muscular, and have to try to maintain the buff workout body.” His transformation has been slow and careful. He lost 12 to 15 pounds each month, changing the foods he was eating and exercising. “I’ve even began to enjoy fish,” he says, noting that it was a food he didn’t enjoy before.
The comeback to the screen gave him some perspective on the changes he was undergoing. “I had a flappy ass,” he says, laughing. As he progressed, he was able to watch his body change for the better. Most importantly for fans, he says that his physical conditioning is making him a better performer.
In the near future, Hotmovies.com will be announcing the release of the new movie on our site. In the meantime, we thought we’d give fans a sample of the new Ed. The picture below shows off his new body. Take a moment to compare the picture above with this one, and we think you’ll agree that the change is remarkable.
The “Dirty Old Man” is back, and he’s healthier, happier, and dirtier than ever. His story is a story of belief and action overcoming inertia and despair. It’s the kind of story that we like to tell. And he summarizes his comeback, and its timing, better than we ever could. Asked why he decided to make his comeback now, he pauses, and it is though his thoughts focus precisely. “Now,” he says, “the time is right.”
Timing for Ed Powers is everything. He saved his health in the nick of time. His recovery was slow, deliberate, and well planned. Now he’s coming back to the screen. His fans will have to wait a little longer, but we’re sure it is worth their time.
