Quite the Transformation! Check Out Magic Johnson’s Son, EJ’s 60 Pounds Weight Loss Journey



EJ Johnson

In August, Magic Johnson’s son EJ Johnson made a personal decision to have gastric sleeve surgery (where his stomach space was reduced by like 80% – to the size of a banana) and now, four months after, the 22-year-old Rich Kids of Beverly Hills still can’t stop gushing about his trimmer look.

Since having the surgery EJ has lost over 60 pounds and he looks so much slimmer, and he says he is happier.

His transformation is still amazing to see on the red carpet.

Talking about his new diet with People magazine, EJ Johnson stated that he eats a bowl of cereal for breakfast, followed by yogurt or string cheese for a snack; for lunch, he eats a tuna or chicken salad with a protein shake or yogurt as a snack; and for dinner, he eats lean protein such as fish or chicken with a side of vegetables.  He has also cut out alcohol, bread, fried foods and foods with high sugar content.

EJ Johnson went from this…

…to this, in weeks.

    He looks like Akeem’s father in coming to America in the first pic. He needs to lose the fur too. But mehn he looks really good in the all black ensemble. I tell people, fat has a way of diminishing your looks. Why we gotta eat? geez, why is it that all the delicious food are the ones that make you blow up? *stuffs face with cake*
    Bruno, this could be your new bae ….. 😀

    Too much money truly gets to people’s head. Magic Johnson sorry o! btw that pink bag looks like they belong to the girl standing beside him, looks off on him.

    The dude is gay, dunno if that explains the pink bag and the girly pouts n poses ‘”confused more”:….does being gay mean you have to act like a woman and vice versa?…confused much…not hating. will genuinely like to know mbok!. cos i have a friend who acts like a woman sometimes and its so funny to behold but he isnt in the slightest bit gay as he wont let me rest.

      Speak for yourself . I don’t get it when people say “no one cares” or “who cares”. Just say “I don’t care” ok? Besides u read the headline..i wonder y u dropped a comment or bothered to open it in d first place if u care less

    Hmmm….what I still don’t understand in this gay concept is that why does one of the partners dress like a female?.If you say you are only attracted to males and you are a male why can’t both of you dress like males.why wearing female clothes and carrying female bags or wearing female hairstyles.this is to tell you that in any relationship that has to be intimate one MUST be female and the other male.why dressing like a female to attract the male sex.he looks healthy sha but am afraid of the side effects of a gastric bypass surgery.

    Yasssssssss I love EJ! At first his over the top “drag behaviour” was a turn off but after watching Rich Kids Of beverly hills (don’t judge me) I saw an honest side of him.

      Na wah O! Seeing this boy really terrified me, just thinking of the kind of kids I would have. Which kain wahala is all this?! I don’t even want to watch any show to convince me about the kid. I’m just worried about him, and his parents.
