Rapper The Game has vowed to get the body he’s “always wanted” in time for Valentine’s Day and he tweeted a before/after picture Tuesday showing off his progress 30 days into his 60-day fitness regimen.
“I have lost no weight….Replaced body fat with muscle. Simple,” the Grammy-nominated 33-year-old wrote to his 1.1 million followers.
In the accompanying shirtless picture, The Game is noticeably more toned and muscular with his many tattoos on display.
His stomach tattoo, coincidentally etched with the word “Stretch”, actually refers to an old nickname because of The Game’s six-foot-four frame.
The former gang banger, born Jayceon Terrell Taylor, kept it in the family by joining his little brother BWS Byrd’s exercise program called 60 Days of Fitness.
The Game has been documenting his healthy journey on Instagram, posting snaps of himself doing a thousand push-ups and the type of meals he eats to stay trim.
“The goal was to dramatically change my eating habits to a clean diet without error as well as shed the body fat wit massive cardio/ab workouts – Running, hiking, cycling etc.,” he wrote.
“I’m happy I was able to stay focused & maintain my motivation which was fueled by you guys, so thanks!!! The next 30 days will be to build muscle in ALL areas so at the 60 day mark which is right in time for Valentine’s Day.”
The Game, a single father-of-three, continued: “I will have the body that I’ve always wanted. I appreciate the support& continuous love from my fans & those who’ve joined the @60daysoffitness team. Stay focused, I’m with you.”
The Game – a former protégé of Dr. Dre’s – released his fifth studio album Jesus Piece last month featuring Lil Wayne, Big Sean, J. Cole, Jamie Foxx, Wiz Khalifa, Tyga, and Chris Brown.
