All the fitness enthusiasts must know how difficult it is to cut down on a single pound. Well, Biz Markie is someone exceptional who managed to cut down over 140 pounds in a span of 2 years. While the techniques like exercise and diet remain natural to drop down on some pounds, the game-changer for the experienced rapper was his dedication and determination get fitter.
Even though Markie cut down on 140 pounds by 2014, he had extremely high ambitions to lose further 30 pounds. The rapper was genuinely concerned about his health, and 244 was still relatively higher and risky to get diseases. He became a regular at the gym and did some intense work-out exercises and ran on the treadmill for hours to get all the fat cleansed out of his body. The 56-year-old himself revealed how he sticks to an 'overall diet.'

Markie also opened up on how he preferred to drink Zevia instead of regular sodas because it is relatively natural. Likewise, he also stopped eating like he used to do in the past, which he labeled as 'crazy.' Interestingly, he used to eat like a whole Entenmann's cake at one time, with a half-gallon of milk in the past. When it comes to advising others, he gave three tips, 'cleanse, more water in your diet, and either walk or exercise.'
For a food-lover like Biz Markie, it is not in his best interest to work out to cut down on some weight. In fact, it was a forced decision for the rap icon as he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2012. That was it when it occurred to him how his life was in a huge threat. In an interview with ABC News, he made the bold statement as 'I wanted to live' as the main reason for cutting down on the weight.

Since Biz was diagnosed with diabetes, he didn't have many options, rather than cutting down on some pounds. If he didn't make changes to his lifestyle, the condition was going to be much worse. For the 56-year-old, the primary objective was to get off the Diabetes meds, and he was halfway through by 2014. When the doctors warned him that he could even lose his feet or other body parts, he was quite scared and got serious enough in his pursuit to get lighter.
