Eminem had too many M&Ms
from gossip boulevard:
Rap star Eminem has been offered a deal to become a spokesman for diet plan Slim-Fast. The hip hop legend has famously ballooned in weight to over 200lbs after stepping out of the spotlight, even recently landing in hospital because of a heart problem. Now Slim-Fast wants to help him once again become the Real Slim Shady by taken on its diet plan.
The deal would be for Eminem to be a spokesman for the firm by showing the world how it helped him drop the pounds. “Slim-Fast is a program that can really work for someone like Eminem,” a spokesman for Slim-Fast said. “It’s a doable and flexible approach. Slim-fast would love to offer Eminem product and assistance to help him become a potential S-F success story.”
Slim-Fast aims to help people like Eminem lose a steady one to two pounds of weight a week by eating about 1,900 calories a day. The plan also recommends 30 minutes or more of moderate physical activity most days of the week.
The rapper’s estranged mother Debbie Nelson has admitted that her son has ballooned in weight. She said: “His face has broken out in pimples and he’s put on so much weight that he’s causing all sorts of other health problems for himself.”
