Al Sharpton's shocking weight loss

Attributes it to "vegetarianism".

by Anonymousreply 4107/14/2013

He lies, it was bariatric surgery

by Anonymousreply 103/31/2013

Hopefully a condition...

by Anonymousreply 203/31/2013

I always assumed he'd had cancer.

by Anonymousreply 303/31/2013

He admitted to having the surgery right after he had it, a few years ago.

I think he's just using vegetarianism as a way to keep the weight off - even with bariatric surgery, you still need to change your eating habits to maintain the loss.

Needs meat.

It looks to me like way more than the 50-ish lb. weight loss they're referring to.

But maybe they're not accounting for any weight loss he had before 2010.

That doesn't look like a healthy face ....

Wow, that is shocking. But he's also much older than when he first appeared on the scene - some amount of withering is to be expected.

Bill Clinton has also lost a ton of weight thru vegetarianism, and also looks a million years old because of it.

It's kind of irresponsible of him to lead people to believe you can have such drastic weight loss merely by going veggie. He obviously got a thumb stomach.

Bill Clinton eats anchovies...I know this for a fact, saw him at a reception eating a passed appetizer with anchovy. NOT vegetarian.

Sharpton is not a veggie either.

Trendy to say you are and then sneak bites here or there.

He's Into Vegetables.

Nobody expected a heart attack to tame bills addiction to...fish.

He's lost 110 lbs over two years. A lot of weight lost, but hardly "shocking" over that much time. That only averages 4.5 lbs per month.

he should help out a sister and help Tawana lose some weight.

"I am urging the Supreme Court to end DOMA and to extend the freedom to marry to all couples: gay or straight. It’s the right thing to do, and it is crucial for our nation to affirm that we are a nation that values freedom and the equal treatment of all our citizens under the law." - Al Sharpton

For fucks sake R12 - people like you are why there's such a dim view of vegetarians. I'm a vegetarian by choice, meaning that I will eat meat on occasion, but generally don't. I suspect that's the case of Bill Clinton too.

by Anonymousreply 2103/31/2013

R21 if you eat it on occasion you are not a vegetarian.

If you smoke sometimes, you are a smoker, not a non-smoker.

Lots of brothers into kemet won't touch meat. Or white sugar. Every single person who has their stomach stapled looks like hell.

R20 said: "Black people's love of meat is almost fetishistic."

I say: "That sounded a lil bit racist to me."

You're the kind of part-time (i.e., NON-) vegetarian who gives real vegetarians a bad name.

R25. Vegetarians give vegetarians a bad name. Never known one that wasn't bat shit crazy.

Go find a hormone-filled, excrement covered being that faced extreme torture immediately prior to death, R28 - and eat it

OK I will. I just don't trust anyone that doesn't like bacon.

R27. Not sure where you think meat comes from, but that's not the conditions where I buy.

by Anonymousreply 2903/31/2013

I was worried for a while but when he kept up his hectic schedule I knew it wasn't an illness, no doctor would approve of that. People forget how young he actually is, I think he's over-done it and it makes him looks way older.

That you KNOW R29. Wake up. Watch "Meat your Meat" on youtube and get back to me.

Reverend Al knows that a regimen diet and exercise is the ONLY way!

R31. Well sweetie, I buy my meat from an organic rancher where I buy whole buffaloes, cows, pigs, and participate in group chickens. I can, and have been there to see the livestock, and have participated in the slaughter/butchering (granted not my favourite part). None have been shit covered, tortured or treated in an in humane way up until the time they got a nice quick bullet to the brain.

Try again R31

I marvel at the innocence of this board. Sadly, life experience and medical knowledge illuminates the more likely culprit.

In OP's photo, look for the glaring flaw. What doesn't fit?

The discolored bottom tooth that has the trademark stain left by a pipe, that's what.

Reverend Al has been losing consistently over the past several years so I believe him.

It didnt happen overnight due to some fake illness like Hate-Retha led us to believe!

Sharpton looks like absolute shit.

Just saw a clip of him on Meet the Press this morning and he looks frightening.
