“Diets don’t work,” Bono said. “You just have to change what you eat, and I have.” The 44-year-old Bono said he cooks “a lot of different stuff,” and for the most part “really [avoids] grains and starches, so meats and vegetables and fruits are my diet. I make them all different ways to keep it interesting.”
Last November, Bono, then carrying 250 pounds on a 5’5 frame, appeared on the syndicated series The Doctors to discuss his weight problems with cohost Dr. Travis Stork and get advice on slimming down.
“I wasn’t an overweight child, but I was put on diets all of the time,” he said at the time. “So there was a lot pressure to be underweight growing up.” He announced on the show his intention to lose between 50-80 pounds.
The former Dancing With the Stars contestant also confessed that he still enjoys dancing. Wonder if he’ll be working out listening to this later this summer.
