Quinton Aaron got the role of a lifetime when he was cast alongside Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw in 2009’s “The Blind Side.” The film told the real-life story of NFL offensive lineman Michael Oher’s difficult journey to the top. Aaron put on a fantastic performance after trying out for the part on a whim.

Aaron may have enjoyed his success a little too much. The actor found himself eating two jumbo-sized KitKats and two Reese’s cups per day. Chocolate and carbs became a part of Quinton Aaron’s daily routine.

The actor told TMZ that he decided to make a dramatic change. Quinton isn’t through with acting yet. His career goals as well as music production ambitions led him to dedicate himself to weight loss. Quinton’s efforts have rewarded him with an astonishing 100 pounds of weight loss.

“I used the new year as a way to get a new me.”


Quinton Aaron came through with a rare delivery on a new year’s resolution. Aaron cut the chocolate and bread out of his diet. Now it’s salads and a keto diet for lunch and dinner.

Aaron is hoping to drop another 64 pounds by May 10th. He is hoping to honor his late mother on her birthday by hitting what he weighed on “The Blind Side.” Congratulations to Quinton Aaron, keep up the great work!
