Rush Limbaugh: Low-Carb Weight Loss Diet Champion?

Filed under: Celebrity — @ March 23, 2007

The popular radio talk show mogul boasts of quick weight loss

Losing weight is hard enough for the tens of millions of average, everyday Americans who are either overweight or obese in the United States today. But can you imagine how much harder it is for someone who lives in the constant public spotlight as a well-known celebrity?

Well, just ask radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh whose popular weekday program still dominates the airwaves with a robust 20 million listeners weekly. The most readers I’ve ever gotten at my blog in one week is 35,000, so I’m certainly envious of Limbaugh’s ability to attract an enormous audience with his politically conservative message. But I’m gonna catch up to you someday, Rush. Start quaking in your boots, buddy! :)

Regular listeners of Limbaugh’s nearly two-decade long mid-day radio show airing on over 600 radio stations from coast to coast have heard him talk about losing weight yet again recently. Fans of the controversial Republican mouthpiece are all-too-familiar with the constant fluctuations in Limbaugh’s weight throughout his career.

But Limbaugh proudly announced in the opening moments of his three-hour radio show on Friday that he has now lost a total of 30 pounds in just the past 40 days.

So what could this new diet that Rush Limbaugh is on possibly be? He’s losing almost a pound a day which sounds very familiar to those of us in the early days of livin’ la vida low-carb. I lost 70 pounds in 60 days when I first went on the Atkins diet in January 2004 at 410 pounds. Eventually I went on to lose 180 pounds in one year and have maintained my weight ever since continuing to eat this way.

It’s merely speculation on my part, but I think Rush Limbaugh is on some kind of low-carb diet. Click here to read more about why I believe Limbaugh’s weight loss is the result of the low-carb lifestyle.
