(AllHipHop News) Rapper Rick Ross has shed 75 pounds after doctors told him his bulk and his heavyweight lifestyle would kill him.
At his heaviest, the “Hustlin’” hitmaker tipped the scales at 350 pounds and as a result slept for just three hours a night.
Ross also had a habit of gobbling down huge steaks at 4am, but two seizures within six hours of each other made him get serious about his diet and his health.
“I’m still losing weight, and now I’m starting to build hard muscle in places,” he tells Men’s Health magazine, explaining he has been taking his weight loss slowly.
“If I quit all the things I loved cold turkey, I knew it would only be so long before I went back to my old ways.”
In order to achieve his goal, Ross pledged not to eat fast food after 5pm and he hired a chef to cook up healthy meals for him.
He also created a new ‘RossFit’ motivational work group to help him stay true to his goals, and now he jogs four days a week before hitting the gym.
Ross can’t believe he’s actually enjoying the healthy lifetstyle, adding, “My advice for anyone looking to lose weight is to not make it feel like a job.”
