Your Black World reports:
NBA legend and TNT sports commentator, Charles Barkley, has a new gig that ensures we’ll be seeing a lot less of him.
Barkley has signed on to be the newest spokesperson for Weight Watchers, and commercials tracking his weight loss will begin airing Christmas Day.
The hilarious “Round Mound of Rebound” reveals that he gained 100 lbs. after retiring from the NBA, weighing in at an unhealthy 350 lbs.
“The doctor said, ‘Hey, dude, if you don’t lost some weight, you’re either going to get diabetes, have a stroke or drop d**d. It’s either A, B, or C,” Barkley told USA Today.
Barkley will be the face of Weight Watchers newest campaign entitled “Lose Like a Man.” According to People magazine, their goal is to get men more engaged in their health.
“I felt bloated and big,” says Barkley, who has lost a total of 41 pounds through a new diet and exercise program — 27 lbs. due to Weight Watchers.
With all the positive changes in his life, Barkley claims that he has “more energy” and is looking forward to better, healthier days to come through Weight Watchers:
“Diet is not a man’s world because we don’t like to diet—we like to eat,” Barkley said in a press release. “Like a lot of athletes, I’ve gained weight since I’ve retired. But, I don’t want to be a fat old man taking lots of pills. Weight Watchers is helping me change my lifestyle and learn how to make smarter eating choices anywhere I am.”
