Popular American singer, bassist and ex-American Idol host Randy Jackson shed light on his epic weight loss on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Jackson was interviewed by Tiffany Haddish and opened up about how he has committed to a healthier routine.
“Years ago, when Idol first started, I was like 358,” he told Haddish. “I had to get it down, man. What I did is, I went through, I had gastric bypass. I started Unify Health Labs, my own vitamin line. I had a food divorce is what I usually say. I had to let it all go and start over.”
He went into details about his struggle with maintaining his body weight while shooting the singing competition series. Post his Type-2 diabetes diagnosis, Jackson came to terms with switching to a healthier way of life. Speaking to People Magazine in 2020, he spoke about having “a complete divorce” with food and how managing his diagnosis towed the same line as losing weight.
Jackson is the co-founder of Unify Health Labs which he claims is his way of giving back.
We’re glad that Jackson has found what works best for him and is healthier now.
