Shaquille O’Neal loses weight

The former NBA player spoke to Entertainment Tonight on Monday about his diet and exercise plan, saying the weight “just fell off” after he instituted certain lifestyle changes.

“A friend of mine called me and said, ‘You’re fat,’ and she gave me this guy’s name, and he did some blood work,” the retired athlete recalled. “He was saying, ‘You can do this, you can’t do that, [eat] more vegetables, [your] iron’s low.’

“Once I just started changing those certain things, it dropped,” the 50-year-old continued. “It’s all about eating right.”

O’Neal noted that he wasn’t “a salad eater” before but now takes supplements, drinks shakes and avoids soda.

He noted his plans to also eliminate bread from his routine, explaining:

“I think I could get the Marky Wahlberg look. I want to be known as the Black Mark Wahlberg.”

It has been noted that the interview comes two months after O’Neal’s “Impaulsive” appearance, during which he told Logan Paul that he had dropped from 401 pounds to 365.

The Olympian shaded fellow sports analyst Charles Barkley at the time, saying the 59-year-old was his “motivation” to have a different “retirement body.” O’Neal, who wants to “become a sex symbol,” added, “I didn’t want my stomach to be over the belt anymore. So I was just like, ‘Let me go ahead and get slim.’”
