Fat Joe: A Personal Catalyst for Change

After being diagnosed with diabetes and witnessing the deaths of overweight friends, Fat Joe decided it was time to change the habits that helped him earn his infamous stage name. "I realized at a certain point, all my big people were dying," he told CNN. "Last year alone, I had six friends die of heart attacks. Most of them were younger than me, but they were my same size.” The rapper now uses a personal trainer, exercises regularly and eats smaller meals throughout the day, all of which helped him shed an astounding 100 pounds. The healthy habits have also helped him reverse the diabetes.
