Ruben Studdard 100 Pounds Lighter

R&B singer Ruben Studdard has reportedly lost nearly 100 pounds by cutting back on his food. The ?Velvet Teddy Bear? singer previously weighed more than 400 pounds. Studdard told NBC’s “Today” show that he was put on a 1,200- to 1,500-hundred-calorie diet at a weight management center at Duke University. The R&B singer, who won 2003’s “American Idol” competition, beating out Clay Aiken, says he’s now a vegetarian. Studdard?s new album is slated to drop Oct. 17. He says he called it “The Return” because not many people bought his inspirational album, and some thought he hadn’t recorded in a while.
