Need tips to lose weight? Meet and ask Ruben Studdard. The former American Idol winner is about to star in Alabama diet campaign.
Since committing to a weight-loss program this summer, Studdard has lost nearly 100 pounds, started eating healthier and begun exercising, according to a news release announcing the program. So it seems the singer knows best how to lose weight and why we should.
Thus, Studdard has inked deal to star in "Scale Back Alabama", the state-wide campaign sponsored by Alabama's hospitals, the Alabama Department of Public Health and Barber Diaries. The campaign is due to kick off Jan. 4 with an event starring Studdard.
"I'm not where I want to be, but I'm on the right track, and I'm excited about encouraging other Alabamians to begin their own weight-loss journeys. I felt like it was necessary for me to combat those issues at a young age before it became a bigger issue," Studdard said.
