Bishop Eddie Long Shows Off His Dramatic Weight Loss
Bishop Eddie Long of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church is showing off a new look.
The megachurch leader who battled sexual misconduct allegations and admitted to at one point being suicidal, has dropped a massive amount of weight after he ditched what he calls the “slave menu” and went vegan.
The AJC reports:
Bishop Eddie Long posted a video discussing his new lean look after his more slender physique apparently caused some of his congregants to worry about his health.
“People are asking, ‘Bishop, what happened to all of you?’” he says in the video, posted to his public Facebook page. “Well, all of me has meelllllted away.”
He said he told his congregation that he planned to live past 100 by dispensing with a “slave menu.”
“I wasn’t going to get (to age 100) by stopping by Popeye’s. That was my weakness,” he says. “The biscuits with honey and chicken wings, spicy.”
He chided people eating from what he called a “slave menu,” saying eating raw vegetables instead has given him more energy and lowered his blood pressure. He has lost weight and no longer has to take blood pressure medication.
For reference this was Bishop Eddie Long before…
