Al Sharpton

Rev. Al Sharpton says his new starvation diet has made him a new man. The once portly, 60-year-old radio host says cutting red meat and poultry out of his "Al Sharpton Diet" helped him drop over 300 pounds!

From NY Daily News:

Sharpton has shed 60% of his much-mocked weight — and he did it without surgery, diet pills or a single Weight Watchers meeting.

“I could take all the cartoons in the tabloid newspapers, but I couldn’t take my daughter punching me in the belly and asking why I was so fat,” Sharpton recalled. “That was my inspiration to lose the weight. And probably the last time anyone hurt my feelings.”

Around six years ago, Sharpton cut out red meat. A year later, he did away with chicken — no small feat for a guy who ate fried fowl three times a day (with grits and eggs for breakfast and on a sandwich in the afternoon, plus a half-chicken for dinner).

Eventually he cut out so much food that he was subsisting on a single lunchtime salad (albeit with one perk: a chopped egg). That’s when the weight really started coming off, at a rate of about 2 pounds a week. And as he got thinner, he found he missed food less and less.

    • CocoKhaleesi

      Starvation is NOT a form of dieting btw and if this is true this man need medical attention to evaluate his mental health. Why is this being glorified and not a medical minute blog posts look at him! I doubt his daughter is happy with this look...

    • spiceykay

      @lovezoe if the nurse end up with Ebola and someone else catches it from her, then I can see her getting sued as a result so she needs to act like she has some kind of sense. It also puzzles me that she actually works for the CDC so something is really off.

      :yawn: MORNING YALL! :hug:

      The problem with starvation diets is..The shut down effect. Your body begins to shut down shyt it deems unnecessary to survive. And the very moment you start eating again it will store every drop of fat that pass your lips to build up for the next time a famine arrives. Its built into our DNA. Feast and Famine...
