You may recognize Action Bronson from his rap career, with songs like Actin Crazy or Standing In The Rain. You may recognize him from his hosting duties on Vice‘s internet foodie show, F**k That’s Delicious.
But soon you may not recognize him AT ALL!
That’s because the rapper is taking advantage of his time off during the COVID pandemic to really focus on getting into shape. And he’s losing weight like crazy!

On Thursday he posted a workout video on Instagram in which he revealed a truly impressive milestone — he’s down 80 lbs! That’s a whole Russian gymnast’s worth of mass just dropped off his body! He wrote:
“IM GETTIN ALL THE MONEY THATS OWED TO ME OVER ALL THESE YEARS. I DESERVE TO HAVE A HOT BOD. IM 283 DOWN 80 POUNDS FROM A WHOPPING 363 AND STILL GOING STRONG. GIVE YOURSELF THE FLOWERS. TERMINATOR IN THE MAKING. @davepfit EASY MONEY. TIME FOR BIGGER WEIGHTS.”
“Still going strong.” Love to see it.
And he wasn’t kidding! The next day he posted more, challenging fans:
“IF A FAT STONED SPACED OUT MOTHAF**KA LIKE ME COULD WORK HARD EVERYDAY THEN YOU CAN TOO.”
It started with major lifestyle changes about four months back but really kicked into gear last month, as he posted in June:
“I WAS ON A PATH THAT LEADS STRAIGHT TO THE GRAVEYARD. EATING FOR SPORT TOOK ITS TOLL BUT ITS MY FAULT AND ITS ON ME TO FIX ME. I OWE IT TO MYSELF AND MY FAMILY.”
“Eating for sport,” as he puts it, has been part of Bronson’s job for years, as he travels around the world eating the most delectable foods, many of the dessert or deep-fried variety for his Vice reality show.
But his weight hit him recently, as he continues:
“I REACHED 363 POUNDS AND I WAS SHOCKED AND SCARED. I BUSTED MY ASS FOR THE PAST 3 MONTHS AND IM DOWN TO 298. THEN A GOOD FRIEND GOT ME TO THE RIGHT SPOT NOW IM TRAINING HARD. THIS IS WEEK ONE.”
OK, so that’s the killer workouts, which Bronson says also involve a lot of cardio. But what about diet?
During a TMZ interview back in May, he explained he’s “been eating really good” as he’s been cooking for his wife, who just welcomed their first child last year. That new nutrition plan includes green juice twice daily, lots of “good carbs” like sweet potatoes, and lean protein like chicken breast. He says:
“[I’m] just really watching what I eat… before I was just animalistic, it was unnecessary what I was doing… It’s a life change.”
That’s what it takes! Not easy — but necessary! We’re so happy for Bronson and can’t wait to see more!
