It's amazing how many celebrities who used to be very overweight, and indeed for decades in some instances, are now miraculously stick thin and putting it down to a simple change in diet.
Such dishonesty. You aren't obese for 30 years and in the space of 12 months lose three-quarters of your bodyweight because of simply eating raw food or cutting back on sugar!!!
If it wasn't for gastric bands they would all still be as fat as they were in 1983... 1991...2000... 2010...
You seriously think George was obese for 30 years?? You think he was obese when Culture Club were huge in the early 80s? You think he was obese when he was a heroin addict in 1986? You think he was obese when he made his comebacks in the late 80s and early 90s? He was only obese just before he actually went into prison 4 and a half years ago. He was no doubt eating for 3 then due to worry about it, and by the time he came out of prison 4 months later, he had already lost quite a bit of weight then.
I really wish people (in general) wouldn't start stupid rumours just because someone - over a 4 year period - has GRADUALLY lost weight. He looks amazing and he's done it slowly and healthily, the right way.
