50 Cent loses 50 pounds

50 Cent has shed 54 lbs for a new movie role. The rapper lost the dramatic amount of weight in just nine weeks by virtually cutting out all foods and undertaking a gruelling exercise regime to play an American football player with cancer in the new film Things Fall Apart. Shocking pictures posted on his website were captioned with the details of his weight loss. In the movie 50 Cent plays a football player diagnosed with cancer. He dropped from 214 pounds to an astonishing 160 with a liquid diet and three-hour-a-day treadmill walks for nine weeks. However, 50 Cent – whose real name is Curtis Jackson – insists he is putting on weight again after finishing filming and embarking on a tour. He said: “I’m starving. I’ve been eating. I’ll be back in shape in no time.”

    that’s just crazy…..

    i’d prefer if they didn’t share how he lost so much weight so quickly. some people don’t realize how dangerous a weight-loss strategy like that can be.

    He’s trying to go for Oscar gold it would seem, removing his tattoos and dropping so much weight for a role. that’s what it would seem to be!
