Randy Jackson made some significant changes to his health after his weight reached 350 pounds during his time on American Idol, which resulted in a 114-pound weight loss. In a recent interview with People, the American Idol singer revealed how he has successfully maintained his remarkable weight loss since having gastric bypass surgery in 2003.
He concluded, "It's a fantastic jump start." You lose a lot of weight quickly, but keeping it off is harder because your mind tells you, "Oh, I've arrived." I can begin the celebration and distribute the cheesecakes."
Jackson explained that initially, especially after becoming diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, it was difficult to keep the weight off. I no longer use that term. Anyone who has lost weight knows that once you stop eating and drinking as much, the weight starts returning. That's when I realized I'd be fine the rest of my life.
Randy told the media that his new eating routine has enabled him to lose (and keep off!) 114 pounds in 19 years since he received his type 2 diabetes diagnosis. However, Randy claims that going healthier after getting gastric bypass surgery was difficult and that he actually gained weight as a result of the procedure.
Randy admitted to WebMD in 2008 that changing his diet required a lot of effort on his part. He said that everyone hangs out, eats, and drinks after the program because of his life in music and television. There are also chips, cheeses, cookies, cakes, beers, and wines that everyone enjoys.
In 2020, he advised People that you should go back little by little, research what works for your body, identify any allergies, and pay attention to how you feel.
