The fit–even slightly underweight–Rev. Al Sharpton who hosts MSNBC’s “Politics Nation” has revealed to the New York Daily News that his fitness regimen includes plenty of exercise (including workouts in the NBC gym at 30 Rock) and very little food. In fact, after lunch, he doesn’t eat dinner–and he hasn’t in years:
Around six years ago, Sharpton cut out red meat. A year later, he did away with chicken — no small feat for a guy who ate fried fowl three times a day (with grits and eggs for breakfast and on a sandwich in the afternoon, plus a half-chicken for dinner).
Eventually he cut out so much food that he was subsisting on a single lunchtime salad (albeit with one perk: a chopped egg). That’s when the weight really started coming off, at a rate of about 2 pounds a week. And as he got thinner, he found he missed food less and less.
