Looks like Red Man and Method Man have become fans of a new kind of green. The hip-hop super stars have recently announced that they have traded in their steaks for vegetables.
After years of pressure from rap colleague GZA who’s been a connoisseur of greens for years, both Redman and Method Man have taken the plunge in becoming vegetarians.
With more hip hop industry notables declaring a personal war on their health by switching to a non-meat diet, will this uprising inspire others in the industry to visit the salad bar a little more often? We can only hope their influence will trickle down to the fans that follow them.
Another notable move towards healthier eating, rapper Fat Joe recently went on a public health crusade after losing 100 pounds. Inspired by the loss of his close friend and late rapper Big Pun who died from a heart attack in 2000, Joe, 6 foot and at the time 460 pounds, decided it was time to take back his life.
By exercising regularly and limiting his meat consumption he was able to eliminate his issues with diabetes. The rapper recently spoke at Rutgers University about his weight loss and is a big supporter of First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign.
