Reverend Al Sharpton is half the man he used to be -- thanks to a diet in which he eats just one small meal per day.
Reverend Al, who once weighed in well over 300 pounds, is down to less than half that, and he credits a strict diet where he eats nothing but a kale salad with hardboiled eggs, tomatoes, and cucumbers. He's eaten that every day for the past four years around midday -- no breakfast, no dinner. But if he gets too hungry, he allows himself a bedtime treat -- one slice of whole wheat toast.
Sharpton told a Page Six reporter, “At my height [he’s 5-foot-10], maybe 15 years ago, I weighed 305 pounds. Today, I’m 132 pounds. I just made up my mind, and I just did it. Cold turkey."
Sounds like intermittent fasting to me. I'm always interested in how somebody manages to be successful when they're trying to get healthy or lose weight. I'm also a firm believer in what works for some people, may not work for all. And as we've all heard...70% of losing weight happens in the kitchen.
