He explained, "With the strenuous rehearsals and big production of my upcoming Vegas residency Loberace kicking off in February, I've personally committed to making health a habit in the New Year. When I decided to make this commitment to myself, I needed a program that would work with my nonstop lifestyle, and eDiets has made it easy and convenient to make health a priority between recording new music, constant travelling and being a father."
Earlier this year Green revealed he was planning a major slim down following the deaths of pals Heavy D and comedian Patrice O'Neal.
He told Rolling Stone magazine, "I want to be healthy. I lost a few really good friends... I lost my friend Heavy D recently, and I was friends with Patrice O'Neal... I'm looking at them and noticing the similarities. I've got a young son and I want to be around for him."
