Less than two years ago, DJ Khaled was crowned the king of Snapchat, thanks to his incredibly inspirational videos and his major keys to success. Now, he’s taking his motivational content and inside look at his life to a new level, as he’s joined the Weight Watchers family, documenting how easy weight loss can really be. Not only has Khaled already lost 20 pounds by “Freestyling every day,” but he’s also showing how a structured points program can fit into his busy schedule filled with business meetings, long nights in the studio, and, most importantly, spending time with his 1-year-old son, Asahd.
“Weight Watchers is all about being great and being your best self,” the music mogul said in a statement. “My son is my love, my life, and I need to be great for him. To be great is to be healthy; to be healthy is a shift in my lifestyle, and the new WW Freestyle program is all about healthier habits for my life. The WW program and community is my partner in this process to greatness, and I’m grateful for what’s to come.”
If there’s anyone who can motivate us to secure 2018, it’s Khaled, and as the new “social media ambassador” for the brand, he’ll be documenting his progress and all the delicious food he’s able to eat on the diet. Speaking of food . . . the new Weight Watchers Freestyle system has members cheering, as the company has expanded the list of foods that are zero SmartPoints. In addition to the fruits and most vegetables that were on the list of zero points previously, the foods that have been added are skinless chicken breast, some fish, eggs, vegetables like corn and peas, tofu, skinless turkey breast, shellfish, beans, lentils, and nonfat unsweetened yogurt.
According to the website, Khaled’s favorite zero-point foods are eggs, chicken, and sashimi. His favorite cookies are only three points, so we’ll be having another one. Read on to see how DJ Khaled’s finding balance in his crazy work schedule and new lifestyle habits.
