Thursday, Dr. Oz is joined by rapper Rick Ross. At 35,000 feet, he had two seizures mid-air, forcing his plane to make an emergency landing. That scary moment grounded him and made him change his life. He lost 100 pounds and he’s here to share his life-saving regimen.
On his seizure, Rick Ross shares: “…One day, I was on a flight and, uh, I just remember my buddy, you know, coming to get me, like get up, homie, you just had a seizure. Let’s go. We got to get off the plane. And I’m like, no… I don’t feel like I had one. So I actually got on the phone, called my private jet guy, 45 minutes later, after getting off a commercial flight, I was aboard in a private plane. I boarded a private plane. An hour into the flight, soon as I fell asleep, I had another seizure.”
On what grounded him after his health scare, Rick Ross explains: “I woke up maybe two or three days later in the hospital, you know, my mother by my side…It’s a real bad sign when you wake up and she there and you know, she batting her eyes and…that’s the worst thing for me is to have my mom with that look on her face. So, you know, that made me feel even worse. So I just woke up to a new reality… a reality where my lifestyle, me sleeping three hours a night, me eating T-bone steaks 3:00 in the morning…caught up with me and…my body couldn’t take it anymore.”
On his signature healthy snack, Rick Ross proclaims: “…I remember going on tour and I would be going to places that I couldn’t even pronounce and, you know, their lifestyle and their way of eating was totally different from us. I didn’t even want anything other than…some water and I found something overseas that I could enjoy, pears.”
