We know what you’re thinking: How did Khaled do it? The producer credits Weight Watchers for helping him slim down. He became an ambassador for the brand in January of 2018, setting a strict goal weight of 250 lbs. Plus, the star revealed how he changed his lifestyle to People, which aided the process along. “When I recommitted I was being honest with myself because I was on the road so much touring that it was difficult for me, with the hours I was up and the different cities I was traveling to and not having access to the foods that I wanted to eat,” he said. “I would eat a bag of chips because it was there. No excuses there. But I’m actually happy about it because it taught me to maneuver now when I go on the road or working.”
The musician went on to dish even more details of his daily diet. “During the day I eat foods that are low in points, and then for dinner, if I know I have a dinner meeting I save up my points so I can enjoy everything that I want to eat. And once I started that system, it became a lifestyle for me,” he says. “Some days I eat a cheeseburger, some days I eat chicken stew. Somedays I eat salad, and on New Year’s Day I ate fried chicken. But I’m still within my points system,” he adds.
This definitely isn’t the end of the road for Khaled’s weight loss journey! “The answer is to continue to be great,” he went on to say in the interview. “And I’m never stopping…so, I want to continue. WW has taught me how to have a lifestyle to be healthy.”
