After suffering multiple seizures in 2011, Rick Ross decided to do everything in his power to change his lifestyle for the better. The 40-year-old rapper who once tipped the scale at 350 pounds, has dropped 75 pounds, and counting.
Ross discussed his insane weight loss in the new issue of Men's Health magazine revealing that he's a new man. "I'm happy," Ross told the magazine. "I'm still losing weight, and now I'm starting to build hard muscle in places."
In order to drop the weight, Ross chose a slower route rather than a quick fix. Besides exercising with friends, and creating a personal version of Cross Fit (a.k.a. "Ross Fit"), which he does four days a week, the Maybach Music Group boss works with a personal chef, and doesn’t deprive himself of guilty pleasures.
Fast food is still on the menu, but these days, Ross is all about portion control. He's only allowed to indulge in eateries like Wingstop and Checkers one or twice a week, and between the hours of noon and 5 p.m.
"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," he explained.
His advice for others interested in losing weight is to "not make it feel like a job."
