In fiance Alex Rodriguez's most recent YouTube blog, "I Almost Missed The Met Gala," the former baseball professional documented the intense workout regimen and starvation diet he went on "not to look fat" along his wife- to-be at the 2019 Met Gala.
Readers know J.Lo, 49, is serious about keeping her body in tip-top shape, especially amid filming her latest movie Hustlers. RadarOnline.com has spotted her hitting the gym and previously reported her posts of pole dancing videos and bikini body photos so the pressure was on for A-Rod.
"I used to exercise for big games against the Red Sox, now I exercise to not look fat," he said as he poked fun at himself in the video.
With a goal to drop four tuxedo sizes - from a size 48 to 44 - in two days, the New Yorker restricted himself to a no carbs and sugar diet while sticking to an extreme exercise routine that included jogging, running stairs, doing yoga twice a day, and wearing a sauna suit. He also fasted 24 hours on the actual day of the Met Gala.
"I have this crazy pink tuxedo that Jennifer and Versace is making me wear, and I need to lose exactly 6.5 lbs," the baseball legend said to the camera.
Despite his determination, however, there were obstacles along the way. The 43 year old admitted he was "so hungry" and confessed to J-Lo that he felt "terrible," but he still managed to accomplish his goal of losing 6.5 lbs and looked quite dapper in his pink Versace tuxedo.
A-Rod's reward to himself: Pizza!
"I can't wait for an hour after the Met Ball," he said. "We are going to go down to the hood and have our best pizza. I can not wait, I'm going to eat an entire pizza."
