The good reverend Dr. Sharpton transformed himself from a heavy 214 lb. man to a slim 167 lbs by banishing meat from his diet in 2010. Sharpton told Vanity Fair “I was a chicken junkie. I used to eat chicken three times a day.” So he cut The Kernel out of his diet along with refined sugar, starch and all other meat. Now he’s taking his healthy eating habits to the community by encouraging African American churches to offer healthier options to their parishioners.

    Uh, MN….I’m gonna assume that in reverence to Rev. Al, you meant he cut the “COLONEL” (military term) and not the “KERNEL” which is corn…out of his diet….lol

  • The best thing you can do is WATCH YOUR CALORIE INTAKE, EXERCISE, and NOT EAT A LOT OF JUNK. You don’t need a lot of fad dieting or extreme measures to do that.
