Rapper Rick Ross is fitter than ever after losing 100 pounds, thanks to CrossFit workouts.Rick attributed his jaw-dropping 100-pound weight loss to a portion-controlled low carb diet and CrossFit workouts.
“I do this sh*t called CrossFit,” said Ross. “I call it ‘RossFit.’ It’s a different type of workout. I feel good.”
Ross also modified his diet, and began eating less junk and more fruit. He stills eats the way he used to, but in smaller portions. And he makes exercise a top priority, TheImproper.
“I eat pears now and s–t like that,” he said. “I still eat the way I want to eat. I just go to the gym.”
Rick decided to take control of his health after suffering two seizures in one day back in 2011. The seizures, which occurred on two separate airplane flights, left him unconscious, and CPR was necessary to revive him.
Ross doesn’t have a specific weight-loss goal, but is proud of his progress. “It was just time for me to tighten up a little bit,” he said. “I have no destination, no specific weight [goal].”
Ross recently dropped his his eighth album Black Market.
Rick isn’t the only celebrity who has lost a dramatic amount of weight with CrossFit. Country superstar Tim McGraw credited the combination of CrossFit and the Paleo diet for his jaw-dropping 40-pound weight loss, as Celebrity Health Fitness reported.
A recent study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicates the Paleo diet is twice as effective as other diets for promoting weight loss and reducing belly fat.
Clinical trials show the Paleo diet prevents heart disease, helps with weight loss, and promotes optimum health and athletic performance,” said professor Loren Cordain, author of The Paleo Diet for Athletes and The Paleo Diet Cookbook.
Holistic health expert Chris Kresser, author of Your Personal Paleo Code, said Paleo isn’t a fad diet because it provides a healthy balance of protein, vegetables and high-quality fats.
McGraw is in the best shape of his life, and has rippling 8-packs for the first time — at age 48.
Tim’s CrossFit routine incorporate kettlebell swings, hammer strikes, tire flips, sled pulling, and strength-training with martial-arts expert Roger Yuan.
Four-time CrossFit Games champ Rich Froning, considered the “fittest man on Earth,” revealed his diet and workout secrets and his incredible journey from firefighter to CrossFit King in his memoir, First: What It Takes to Win.
