It seems like more and more people are choosing to go without meat these days, including a few female rappers.
Last year we told you that Remy Ma slimmed down considerably after revealing that she scrapped meat and sodas for healthier fare, saying, “I only do like seafood here and there. Mostly just fruits and vegetables and water, water, water.”
As Remy shared, it’s a lot of hard work to gain the discipline to go without something you’ve been consuming for quite some time, but it’s worth it. Someone who can relate to that is rapper Young MA. Even if you haven’t heard of her, we’re pretty sure you’ve heard her hit song, “Ooouuu” from 2016. The 25-year-old Brooklyn native recently gave up meat and cut down drastically on her alcohol consumption. In just two months, and with the help of consistent exercise, she said that she’s lost 20 pounds.
“To all my supporters that keep saying I lost weight.. yes it was on purpose lol,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’ve stop eating meat (beef, pork, chicken, turkey, lamb…) I cut my liquor intake into ‘occasionally only’ lol.. I’ve been in the gym consistently… and I’ve been watching my calorie intake.. it was discipline for me of course. In 2 months I’ve dropped 20 pounds.. Always wanted to change my diet but wasn’t mentally ready for it at first.. Honestly since I’ve changed my diet I’ve been less exhausted.. I wake up with full energy.. and also mentally I feel good… I just want to say to all my supporters if you are not happy with anything in your life you have the power to change it! Only you!”
The star’s hard work is clearly paying off:
