Styles P is celebrating a milestone in his journey to healthy living after making it nine straight years of eating only plant-based foods.
SP jumped on Instagram on Saturday (December 31) with a post of a body weight scale with the number 169.20 showing across the screen. The rapper had lost over 70 pounds since committing to eating plant-based food in 2013 and in his caption, Styles was elated to have hit a “scoopable weight” and feeling light on his feet.
“Today is my 9 th year anniversary for eating plant based,” Styles began. “I didn’t intend to be plant based just went on a 3 week cleanse Dec 31st 2013 . And never turned back. Proud of myself because at one time in my life I was 240lb Which wasn’t healthy for my height.
“Although I’m at a scoopable weight right l now I’m feeling damn great and I’m light on my feet for a vintage dude and my snuff to the light jog off game is feeling on point any way cheers to me. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL . May it be blessed and prosperous . . If nothing make sure you make taking care of yourself a priority this year ahead of us.”
He continued: “The money comes and goes .. once the health is gone it’s hard to get back or live the way you want to .. the good ole folk @farmacyforlife and @juicesforlife and the STYLES FAMILY aka the farma’s. Will do what is needed to assist you on your journey! LOVE IS LOVE and STAY GOLDEN.”
Several of Styles’ peers chimed in on the celebration in the comment section, such as Royce Da 5’9″ who wrote: “My brother!!” and Questlove, who said: “This is awesome bro, keep on goin.”
Styles P and Jadakiss launched their juice shop Juices For Life to offer healthy food choices to underserved families in 2011. He then started a local health food store with his wife called Farmacy of Life which offers several herbal supplements to improve physical wellness.
Over the summer, Styles P gave fans a look at his workout regiment that included variations of a pull-up workout, and in the video’s caption he lets it be known that being brolic doesn’t necessarily mean a person is automatically strong.
“#OPERATIONUNWASHED … they ain’t giving it out you got to go get it !!!!!! #juicesforlife #farmacyforlfe,” Styles captioned the first post. “Don’t confuse being diesel for being strong and endured … gotta work at it all.. mind , body and soul !! Just focus on being a better you and you are on the right direction /track !!!”
In the second clip, Styles can be seen doing an abdominal workout which includes lifting a medicine ball with his legs while hanging from a bar. Instead of speeding through the workout, The LOX rapper expresses the importance of taking his time.
“#OPERATIONUNWASHED…., slow motion is better than no motion .. what you waiting for ? Go get to it !!!!#juicesforlife #farmacyforlife …. Plant based strong,” he wrote.
