Fit, not fat, has become the new black.
The internet is littered with articles about people who want to gain weight, especially in relation to fitness, and now the hashtag #GamerGate is taking the weight loss trend to a whole new level.
A video posted on Twitter by the actor Michaela Baldwin and rapper A$AP Rocky (who recently lost 30 pounds) shows the two men talking about their progress and how much they’ve lost since they began the process of dieting.
The video, which has since been viewed more than 2.7 million times, features Baldwin talking about the new fitness trends, while Rocky and Baldwin discuss how the fitness world has changed in the last decade.
“I’ve been in the fitness industry since 2011, so I’ve seen all these new trends.
I’ve been seeing people who’ve been losing a ton of weight, who’re looking to lose weight and lose fat, and I thought I wanted to try it,” Baldwin said.
“And then I realized that I could also lose some muscle, too, so that’s why I started taking care of my body.”
The new trends and dieting trend aren’t new to Baldwin and Rocky.
The two were also featured in the popular fitness documentary The New 50 and recently appeared on “The Bachelorette.”
Baldwin and Rocky also starred in the 2015 documentary, What’s Your Age?
Baldwin also recently appeared in the film, “An Insider’s Look” about the life of an elite athlete.
“A lot of my friends have started doing the same thing,” Rocky said in the video.
“I think it’s a really good trend.
It’s not the same as eating healthy, it’s not going to get you ripped, but you can get the same results.”
As for how they’ve gone about losing weight, Baldwin and her husband Rocky, who is a fitness coach, said they started by exercising a lot.
“We were working out four to five times a week for about a year and a half, so we’ve gone from being pretty skinny to about a six pack,” she said.
Rocky added that he has seen some of his clients who have gained 30 pounds since he started.
“So I feel like I’m getting a little more lean, I’m definitely gaining muscle,” he said.
Baldwin also said that she has seen people go on to lose more than 30 pounds, adding that she doesn’t know of anyone who has gained more than 50 pounds in the past three months.
“This is my personal weight loss journey, and it’s really important to remember that you don’t have to be thin to lose the weight,” she explained.
“If you want to lose fat and have a healthier body, it can be a lot easier to get there.
There’s so many great weight loss products out there that I really feel like it’s up to you.
I’m not trying to give you a recipe for how to lose body fat.”
