CHARLES BARKLEY – 40 POUNDS
Basketball star Charles Barkley is probably not someone you’d imagine as being overweight, but the 56-year old missed a lot of sports training which caused him to pack on the pounds. Thankfully, he managed to get the situation under control before it went too far. He took up a weight loss program with a detailed diet and fitness training to lose 40 pounds. The secret to his success: vegetables!
“I’ve eaten more vegetables this summer than I have in my last 50 years of life. And they suck, just for the record,” he said while talking about his diet. “You have to eat a lot of vegetables. They don’t taste good, but I had to look at the big picture and be healthy.”
