Brew Quotes: Charles Barkley On Men & Weight

15

Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in Brew Quotes, Charles Barkley | Posted on 23-12-2011

It’s no secret that former NBA player Charles Barkley has struggled with his weight through the years. He’s a corn-fed country boy who likes his snacks (I can relate… well, not to the boy part but you get what I’m saying). Sometimes, you like your grits with a side of bacon and whatnot. Now, Sir Charles has gotten a handle on his waistline and is the new face of a Weight Watchers campaign aimed at helping other men lose weight. Unlike Jennifer Hudson’s singing and shouting about feelin’ gooooooodddd, Barkley tells ESPN that he plans to be a different kind of spokesperson.

“Fat-ass men do not go to meetings with other fat-ass men to talk about being fat and losing weight. We just don’t. We just call each other ‘Fat Ass’ all the time instead.”

“I actually told them [Weight Watchers] when we were sitting around talking about ideas, ‘There’s one thong commercial I do want to make.’ So I said, ‘I’d like to come out in a bathing suit like Kirstie Alley did.’”

I’m totally game for seeing that thong commercial. If Jenny can wail, Charles can flaunt his tail! Barkley has lost 50 lbs. so far -35 of them on the Weight Watchers plan- by changing what he eats.

“Now I eat Brussels sprouts, asparagus, cauliflower, even butternut squash. I want to make it clear I’m not overly thrilled with Brussels sprouts. But I’m trying. I’ve eaten more fruit and vegetables in the last few months than I have in the first 48 years of my life. What I found out is, I love green beans.”

Barkley says apparently he was really fat and none of his friends told him so! But it was the slap-in-the-face style news from his doctor that finally made him drop the el-bees. He now hopes to teach his fellow native Alabamans how to eat healthier. He says he has another 40 lbs. go!

Charles Barkley brought his Alabama, cue-card readin’ drawl to the stages of Saturday Night Live over the weekend. I was hopped up on NyQuil, so I missed it (and frankly, if Shy Ronnie wasn’t in it, then I didn’t miss much).  Anyway, here’s the full episode if you missed it too.

Charles Barkley took one helluva shot at Sammy Sosa on TNT Thursday.  He told Sammy… you can’t get into the hall of fame by turning white.  I promptly fell on the floor in death laughter.  Join me, won’t you…
