Update: I’ve been receiving more and more questions about 50 Cent weight loss, liquid diets, and workout routines. Many people also keep asking me what diet and workout plans I’ve been following. So I’ve decided to add a quick list and some notes regarding some of the fat loss programs I can recommend without any hesitation. See the end of this article.

Skinny 50 Cent photos …
Am I the only one who thinks he is not only skinny, but also scary?
50 Cent has really shocked me (and millions of others) by posting his skeletal images on his Twitter account and website. He lost 54 pounds, dropping to 160 from 214 pounds, in 9 weeks and he also lost six inches from his waist.
“I lost 54lb for it. I was starving.”
Without going into dull details of why he would have wanted to do this to himself, let me inform you that no, he is not doing drugs and no, he is not suffering from some deadly sickness. 50 Cent dropped lots of pounds in a short amount of time and it’s all for a movie role. In an upcoming movie called Things Fall Apart, 50 plays a cancer patient. Not everything in life have to be personal, but this time he is taking this highly seriously because the movie is inspired by the real story of 50′s one friend who died of cancer. So, 50 looks scary and horrible, as that’s the point.
Respect to 50 Cent since he is (over)doing this for artistic purposes and as a memorial to his late friend, but his weight loss methods sound a bit… dangerous. Losing that much of weight, in 9 weeks, by liquid dieting and walking daily on a treadmill for up to three hours? (Need a doctor?). I have no doubt that he will put the pounds back on and get his muscular body back soon. He’s got all the (expensive?) tools that can help him get in shape in no time. (According to news reports, he had already gained back more than 40 pounds.)
It is no secret that weight loss methods that celebrities use often result in fad diets. Sometimes these diets work and sometimes don’t. We’ve been alerted and adviced by medical experts that some of these fad diets are deadly dangerous that they should not be tried at home. In 50 Cent’s case, experts repeat the advice as they think his case is the extreme and his diet methods should be avoided.
Losing over 50 pounds in 9 weeks is possible if you set your goals right and take action. Nothing is impossible for us human beings, right? But remember this golden rule: Just because you can does not mean you should! You want to get in shape, look hot and sexy, be a healthy role model. That’s your main weight loss goal in the first place. You are not preparing for a movie role, aiming for Oscar.
Before deciding what weight loss methods you’ll follow, make sure that it is going to produce a long last result. A balanced diet and moderate regular exercise may take time to get you the figure you wanted, but it will gently get you toned up, and keep the weight off for good. When you follow a crash diet plan which is paired with an extreme exercise routine, there appears to be a rapid weight loss, creating an illusion that the plan is working properly. At this point, no fat has been lost; what happened is that the body’s limited store of glycogen, a form of carbohydrate, is used up. As glycogen is utilized, the body loses water with it, so there appears to be a rapid weight loss.
Liquid diets are mainly for spesific health issues, not for weight loss. There are several liquid diet types and the classic one would tell you to have two meals a day with a shake or drink and the third should be a nutrient rich meal. Most liquid diets are very low in calories – like 1200 calories per day. Liquid diets attract people because these allow them have a sweet drink, also very little meal planning is involved and in the first few days, weight can be lost quickly. The main problem is these diets do not teach people healthy eating habits and do not provide a maintenance plan. Once you return to eating solid foods, weight is likely to return. In addition, these drinks do not contain phytochemicals, which have natural disease prevention properties and are found in foods.
Think about it – when making major dietary changes, you want to get the most out of your calories. Wouldn’t you rather fill up, rather than drink something and be hungry again soon after? Use liquids to pimp your diet plan, do not plan your diet around them (unless it’s recommended by a personal trainer or a medical advisor who monitors your system religiously).
My final thoughts… It was really shocking to see skinny 50 Cent photos all over the place – at first, I confused him with Dave Chappelle… But it was even more shocking to get asked by so many people where they could find the liquid diet 50 Cent used to lose all these weight! I repeat it again… You want to get in shape, look hot and sexy, be a healthy role model. You do not want to feel dizzy, tired, and fatigued or look sick! Eat smart, move smart and you’ll get better (long-term) results.
4 of the best weight loss programs I know to help you lose weight without looking starvin’ sick:
Fat Loss 4 Idiots shows you how to develop the proper approach to food and lose weight quickly. It shows you how to reach your fat loss goals using real foods you eat every day. The name sounds horrible but once you see how the program works, you will understand how the name came about.
This is not a one-size-fits-all type of plan. They have an online diet generator which automatically computes everything for you in just seconds. It gives you the correct daily menu for you each day so that you don’t have to calculate anything while shifting your calories.
This is not a diet you go on, lose weight, go off the diet, and gain the weight back. This is something life-changing. Fat loss pro Rob Paulos and wife Kalen lost over 101 pounds in a few months by exercising 30 minutes per… WEEK! In this program, Rob shows us people the ‘right’ ways of exercising. I like this program because it annihilates the need of doing endless hours of boring cardio. And no calorie counting neither!
I’ve learned how to modify my exercise routines to make them twice as effective from this program. Plus, I didn’t have an idea about the hidden evil fat storage triggering ingredients in my food, till I found the Truth About Abs. I highly recommend this program for all women who want to lose fat and get sexy toned stomach instead of a blubberous belly, and for guys who want rock hard six-pack abs instead of a gelatinous tub of gut!
