Timbaland‘s lifestyle change has been something amazing to see. The legendary producer recently told Men’s Health how he managed to drop 130 pounds after having a nightmare just after learning he had developed prediabetes.
Timbo said, “I had a dream that death was near. I saw myself with a white face.” He detailed how he gained a lot of weight in the past due to unhealthy eating habits and because of his addictions to OxyContin and percs. “The pills put me in a great feeling of not caring, of just being free,” he said.
The producer also said that with the support of his children and his girlfriend, Punch Elite Fitness gym founder Michelle Dennis, he managed to drop 50 pounds after the first year of training.
“God has me under construction, which I’m still under,” Timbaland continued. “I don’t feel like I’m complete. I don’t want to ever feel like I’m complete, because my mind would probably get idle. God needed me to be clear so I could see what is needed, not what I want.”
