French Montana

I Slacked Off With Khloe

But Now I've Got Some Serious Abs

10/25/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

French Montana Weight LossFrench Montana admits he packed on a few lbs while he was dating Khloe Kardashian ... but now that they're history, he's transformed his oversized gut into rock-hard abs.

French saw Khloe turn into a fitness machine after their breakup in early September, and he followed suit ... hitting the weights with producer Mally Mall at CrossFit in Sherman Oaks.

We're told Khloe's appearance in workout videos and her obvious weight loss the last couple months has been French's inspiration.

Another motivation ... French also has a new album set to drop in December.

Rob Kardashian, your move.

D'Angelo

Chow Does It Feel?

10/23/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

102214_dangleo_launchD'Angelo is in the middle of his first-ever Australian tour, and from the looks of it ... there's way more of R&B's former #1 sex symbol for fans Down Under to love.

The "Untitled (How Does it Feel)" singer was performing at Soulfest in Melbourne last weekend ... and he's no longer flaunting the buff physique he had years ago. Still sounds good though.

The ex-neo soul brother #1 has had huge swings in poundage over the years.

It's an up year.

EXCLUSIVE

Val Kilmer Weight Loss
Val Kilmer
is half the man he used to be ... and we're told he shed the pounds the old fashioned way with determination ... and walking his ass off.

We're told 'Iceman' looked in the mirror and realized he had let himself go ... and decided to change everything.

There was no personal chef or magic diet pill ... just healthy eating and exercise, especially long walks on the beach by his home in Malibu ... which doesn't suck.

By the way ... walking on the beach is good exercise ... but not as good as playing volleyball with shirtless dudes.

AL ROKER SYNDROME IS REAL

Head Too Big for Skinny Body

EXCLUSIVE

081914_bart_scott_launchAl Roker Syndrome -- When you drop a ton of weight and your head is disproportionately bigger than your body. See: Al Sharpton, Star Jones, guy from Blues Traveler. 

A.R.S. is for real -- and can affect all sorts of people ... especially in the NFL community ... so says former NY Jets star Bart Scott

We were talking to the ex-linebacker in NYC yesterday and he explained that head-to-body ratio needs to be a factor when former NFL players decide to drop weight after their playing days. 

"You gotta find an equilibrium ... you gotta find a part where your head and your body match." 

Ya gotta watch the clip -- Scott is hilarious ... and even calls out one of his former NY Jets teammates who came down with some ARS after dropping more than 100 pounds!!! 

Al Roker Fun Fact -- dude once sharted his pants in the White House. For real.

LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony are gonna wear out opponents even more this season… if diet doc Reggie Miller knows what he's talking about -- and he's a Hall of Famer, so we'll assume he does.

Reggie -- one of the skinniest HOFers ever -- weighed in on the NBA trend of superstars trimming down … and told us LBJ shedding LBs means he won't be carried off the court with cramps anymore.

In fact, Reg explained why 'Melo and LeBron's thin-to-win plan will spell trouble for the NBA … for years to come.

Hard to argue. Reggie Miller knows skinny. And 3s … and Knick-killing.

But Must Lose Weight First

EXCLUSIVE

Yuma The Pig Book Deal

"Young and the Restless" star Kevin Schmidt's famous pet -- Yuma the Pig -- has scored a children's book deal and will go on tour to promote it ... but he needs to drop a lot of sausage first.

Yuma's a micro-pig -- which typically weigh 45 lbs ... but has ballooned to more than 80, meaning Kevin and his hog have some serious work to do before she hits the wheels of squeal in September.

In order to make weight, Yuma will be walked 4 times a day and fed only organic meals by a pro chef ... at a cost of $1,000 a week!

Yuma's easily been worth her weight ... having already hammed it up on "A-List Pets" with Ian Ziering, booked several $15,000-a-pop public appearances, launched her own clothing linechalked up 32,000 Twitter followers, and -- not to be forgotten -- recovered nicely from her near-death experience on TMZ Live.

Now if we can only get her off the couch.

'DWTS' Star Cheryl Burke

I'm Not Dying

EXCLUSIVE

0710-cheryl-burke-facebook-01
"Dancing with the Stars" star Cheryl Burke looks dramatically different these days ... but she says she's NOT deathly ill ... hasn't had plastic surgery ... and she's pissed at all the trash talk.

Burke -- who recently dropped a sizable amount of weight -- posted this pic on Facebook ... and got bombarded with comments from people saying she looks anorexic.  Someone even suggested she's dying of AIDS. 

One person wrote, "Those Botox lips need there [sic] own FB page, gross" ... and another said she should delete the pic before it ends up on TMZ.

Burke is especially upset because she believes the same people who are trash-talking her now are the ones who called her fat before.

Burke -- who was once a regular on the club/party circuit -- tells TMZ there's absolutely nothing wrong with her ... she recently turned 30 and decided to stop drinking and hard partying.  She says she's living healthy ... and that what you see is the result of hard work.

Burke tells us, "I didn't have plastic surgery and I don't have an eating disorder. I'm just actually happy."

Adam Richman Thinspiration Instagram

The woman whom Adam Richman called a c**t is licking her chops now that Adam's show has been yanked from the Travel Channel ... telling TMZ she will only be satisfied if he walks with fat people.

Amber Sarah -- got in a Instagram battle royale with Adam after he pissed off the eating disorder community by bragging about his 70-pound weight loss by posting a pic with #thinspiration.  Sarah and others called him out for being insensitive.  He responded, "Grab a razor blade and draw a bath."

Sarah is happy the network pulled Adam's show, "Man Finds Food" from the schedule, but she's not out for blood.  She wants Adam to volunteer with eating disorder groups by participating in walks that help obese people get in shape.

And she wants him to donate money.

BTW ... Sarah says she could end up arm-in-arm with Adam on one of the walks.   She doesn't weigh herself, but calls herself a "fat activist who is fat."

EXCLUSIVE

Mercedes "MJ" Javid swears she hasn't been photoshopped, she really did drop 20 lbs., and she tells TMZ ... she did it the old fashioned way -- lots and lots of sex ... and some traditional exercise.

The "Shahs of Sunset" star says she's seen all the haters accusing her of doctoring the pics from a recent swimsuit shoot -- but says her real secret is simply banging the weight away.

Best of all ... MJ claims the more pounds she shed, the more sex she had -- and the more sex she had, the more calories she burned. The least vicious cycle ever! 

She admits cutting back on hard partying and late-night boozing definitely helped too ... along with hiking, biking, tennis and dodge ball -- but says she's definitely sticking to her sex diet.  She says bluntly, "I'm too pretty to be fat!"

Her ego is NOT slimming down.

MJ Sheds lbs ...

Swimwear Rejoices

Shahs of Sunset MJ Weight LossShahs of Sunset star, Mercedes "MJ" Javid painted on a bathing suit for a rooftop photo shoot in L.A. this week ... and it looks like she's dropped a bunch of weight. LOOKS like it anyway.

MJ's been pretty open about her weight issues -- and last year claimed she was shedding pounds without really trying. She never revealed a number, but this is pretty strong evidence. 

Compare MJ now to her infamous poolside shot from 2 years ago. 

But here's the issue -- this is Hollywood where everything isn't always as it seems.

So ... we gotta ask ...

Senator Claire McCaskill

Dr. Oz Attack

Was Personal

6/18/2014 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Senator Claire McCaskill Attacks Dr. Oz
Senator Claire McCaskill -- who grilled Dr. Oz like a cheeseburger during Tuesday's hearing -- was incredulous over the Doc's "miracle pill" because she's walked the walk ... sources connected to the Senate Subcommittee on Consumer Protection tell TMZ.

McCaskill lost a ton of weight in 2011 ... actually more like 50 pounds.  She did it the old fashion way -- diet and exercise -- and she was proud of it.   We're told she thinks diet shortcuts are ineffective and often fraudulent.

So when Oz came to The Hill ... we're told McCaskill was locked and loaded for a showdown over Oz touting green coffee beans as a miracle drug.   One of McCaskill's staffers tells TMZ ... this was not a vendetta against Oz, and others have told us the same -- that she just thinks these quick fixes are harmful, especially when they're endorsed by credible people.

For Oz's part ... we're told he and his staff privately acknowledged he went too far on the air, and pulled back on the hyperbole several years ago.
