Jaden Smith is back on track after a super-disciplined vegetarian diet went haywire! Thank goodness!
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith revealed on Monday the couple was forced to have “a bit of an intervention” for their 21-year-old son after they noticed how rapidly he was losing weight and how quickly he’d developed “dark circles” under his eyes upon switching over to a new food regimen.
Speaking on the September 23 episode of Jada’s popular Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, the Smiths revealed they quickly became concerned for Jaden’s health after seeing those physical markers. And when they realized how he’d been trying to eat, they determined it was time to sit their Icon rapper son down and have a chat with him about nutrition.
The 48-year-old Gotham actress revealed more, saying (below):
“Will and I had a bit of an intervention with Jaden because he’s a vegan now, but we realized he wasn’t getting enough protein. He was wasting away. He just looked drained. He was just depleted. He wasn’t getting the nutrients. There was even grayness to his skin. We got really nervous.”
Clarifying his mom a bit — Jaden responded by noting he’s a vegetarian, and not a vegan — the rapper nevertheless argued that the unwelcome physical changes actually came not from the nutrients, but from cutting back to one or two meals per day.
The 21-year-old Never Say Never performer made his case (below):
“I also just wanna say that I’m vegetarian. I’ve tried to be vegan. I’ll go vegan for a week or so, but for the past year, I’ve been vegetarian. I was just eating, like, two meals a day … maybe one. Maybe just that one big meal, and I’m like, ‘Oh, you know, I didn’t get around to it.’”
Wow! Not great!!
Still, as Will noted during the discussion on the show itself, Jaden was already “looking better now” after quickly getting back on track and eating multiple meals every day again. Just the way it should be!
Reactions, Perezcious readers?! Have you ever dealt with the fall-out from extreme dieting?? Moderation is key for everything in life! Just saying!!!
