Not even John Krasinski’s “Pipes” strike fear in the hearts of his fellow celebrities.

A big secret of his success, as he told us, was tossing out his bathroom scale to achieve the results.

Threw out the scale? Not like, put it in the closet?

I don’t need no stinkin’ scale to nab Men’s Health.

“To be fair, I had bought my scale years and years ago. So I actually threw it out. Because I didn’t want to be tempted. It was an old scale. Don’t worry, I don’t think it even worked. At least I felt better when I said it didn’t work.”

In truth, no scale helps for the regiment he perfected over months.

Krasinski told us that when he did look at the scale, it would only lead to frustration.
