For Inside the NBA co-host Charles Barkley, the weight that he’s been carrying around has become the brunt of the jokes.
It seems that Chuck is sick of this and decided to become a spokesman for Weight Watchers:
Barkley listened, and now is combining his goal of getting down to 280 with being a spokesman for Weight Watchers’ “Lose Like a Man” campaign that kicks off on Dec. 25. Barkley says he managed to shed 14 pounds on his own, and that he has taken off another 27 — down to 309 — since going on the Weight Watchers program in late September.
Barkley, 48, says he has eaten more fruits and vegetables in the last two months than he did in the previous 35 years, and he’s blunt about how he gained all that weight.
“There’s no excuse for me being 100 pounds overweight. That’s just me being lazy,” Barkley says. “I only ate rice, corn and potatoes, which are clearly starches. People don’t get fat eating fruits and vegetables.”
