Rush Limbaugh Weight Loss On Jay Leno

Talk show icon Rush Limbaugh was on Jay Leno last night and he was asked by Jay how much weight he has lost. Amazingly, Rush has lost a total of 82 pounds by following a weight loss plan as custom designed for him by Quick Weight Loss Centers of Florida.

Rush was his usual self and if you have ever listened to his show, you know exactly what I mean, while Jay talked about Rush Limbaugh weight loss with the fiery radio show host, Rush wanted to talk about politics and President Obama. Whatever you think of Rush, you have to admit he looks great after losing as much weight as he did. He isn’t an advocate of exercise along with a weight loss diet plan because he simply hates to work out. Personally I think it is important to exercise while losing weight, especially when you restrict your calories as Rush did.

The reason for exercising is that you need to build muscle and keep your metabolism up because a low calorie diet will bring your metabolism down. What happens when you restrict calories is that even after just a few days on such a diet your body will think that it is being starved and it will automatically start slow down your metabolism to conserve fat. Thus, if you don’t do something to keep yourself active when you go off this kind of a diet, you will start to gain the weight back even quicker than you did to get to your top weight. This is the classic yo yo diet syndrome.

Rush claims that he has now purchased a treadmill and is now starting to get in some exercise which is obviously a great thing and should certainly help him maintain his weight at this much healthier level he is at now.

Rush also had a great time on Jay’s show taking the “Green Car Challenge” where he had a chance to take an electric car around a track at record time. The second lap had obstacles he was supposed to avoid or he would get time added to his score. But since those obstacles were Ed Begley Jr and green guru global warming scare guy Al Gore, Rush decide to run them over and then proceed to back up and run them over again. It was pretty funny to watch a classic Rush moment.

Regardless of how you think he did lose weight or whether you think it was safe to do, Rush looks great and he did lose an amazing amount of weight in a short amount of time. All he has to do now is keep it off. Let’s keep track and see if he does.
