Fat Joe gets inspired by Oprah and loses Weight!

Fat Joe, ain’t Fat No Mo!

Let me clarify the Headline, not inspired by Oprah, but inspired by the Oprah show.
Fat Joe, aka Don Cartagena has been doing more then dropping lyrics.  He’s dropping weight.



Fat Joe Aka Joey Crack (sorry for all the aka’s but I’m a fan), used to be 6 foot 2 inches and 350 lbs.  He’s now 88 lbs lighter and going for more.

His reasons were simple,

“I always loved being fat, obviously. I’m Fat Joe. The biggest killer of people is food. It kills more people than AIDS or gun violence or war, anything you can name. Everybody keep catching strokes and heart attacks, and what happened to me was, like seven of my friends passed last year from heart attacks, and they were all 32, 34 years old, 35. What’s the difference between me and them? Health doesn’t discriminate just because I’m famous”

Oprah Inspired Fat Joe!

The final straw was an Oprah episode about weight loss.

“All of them lost like 100 pounds. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I gotta get on this diet,’”

There’s no secret celebrity diets, no pill just healthy eating and working out.  Cardio, weight lifting and dropping all the fast food.  Honestly that’s all it takes.

What would he call himself if not “Fat Joe”?

Some of his friends are calling him “Joey Flaco”.  I like it.

Look at Joey Flaco in his new video “Drop a Body”
