Can you believe Rev. Al Sharpton lost so much weight? He’s barely recognizable these days after losing a whopping 175 lbs.
According to a new profile featured in the New York Daily News, Al weighs just 129.6 lbs.
The best part? He managed to drop 60% of his weight — all without surgery, diet pills, or Weight Watchers.
“I could take all the cartoons in the tabloid newspapers, but I couldn’t take my daughter punching me in the belly and asking why I was so fat,” Sharpton recalled. “That was my inspiration to lose the weight. And probably the last time anyone hurt my feelings.”
That incident with his daughter happened nearly 15 years ago, when she was 12. But it wasn’t until more recently that Sharpton devised his strategy to drop the pounds — just stop eating.
