Red Carpet Confidential: How CeeLo Green Dropped 20 Lbs.
“Can you tell?” he asks me this week, his eyes gleaming, when he hosts The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Atlantic City.
Actually, I could tell. He looked slimmer onstage when he performed earlier that evening at Harrah’s Ballroom.
How did he do it?
For starters, he cut out bread and fried food.
“Far too often, being overweight is associated with overeating, and that’s not always the truth,” he says. “Actually, not eating enough is the cause of obesity in some cases.”
He continues, “In my case specifically, I don’t have an appetite early in the morning, which is when you should always break the fast — you should always eat in the morning.”
Another thing that has helped him is managing his food intake.
“I encourage everybody to take a more professional approach to their personal lives, meaning itineraries, schedules, overseeing, discipline,” he says. “Something that’s healthy here will be healthy here, and will be healthy here, so you have to mindfully do something proactive and positive for yourself. It’s will, and wishful thinking.”
During The Pool After Dark event, CeeLo bounces onstage to perform hits including Forget You, Crazy and even a cover of Pussycat Dolls hit Don’t Cha.
He feels so good he sings “don’t cha wish your boyfriend was hot like me? … don’t cha wish your boyfriend was rich like me?" Ha!
