Shaquille O’Neal Says He Lost 40 Pounds Rather Easily After Changing His Diet

At 7’1, Shaquille O’Neal is always going to stick out in a room, but he’s hoping to get just a little less wide. The former NBA star talked to Entertainment Tonight recently and revealed he has lost 40 pounds.

And he’s hoping to lose at least 20 more.

The 50-year-old athlete claims a friend of his called him and straight up told him he was looking fat.

And she gave me this guy’s name, and he did some blood work. 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. It’s all about eating right.

He’s been eating more salads, taking more supplements and drinking more protein shakes. He’s also cut out soda entirely.

In the future, he wants to cut out bread completely as well, and when that happens… watch out!

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

In a separate interview a couple months ago, Shaq hinted at his weight loss, saying he was getting tired of his stomach hanging over his belt. He also added that he wanted to become a sex symbol.

What do you think? Has he earned that title yet?
