The political pundit also urged his followers to donate to UCLA for their coronavirus patient fund. In addition to it, he divulged that he was doing well after his stroke and now, he was following his new diet and working with his trainer.

You’re saying he lost 50lbs in about 10 weeks? At five lbs/week, he’ll have a hard time keeping that off — especially since he lost 25 of those lbs in SEVEN weeks. Meaning he lost the last 25 lbs in about 3 weeks, i.e. 6.5 lbs/week. It’s really difficult to change your habits, especially eating habits, in that length of time. He has a tough road ahead in keeping it off. He obviously doesn’t have any lasting effects from the stroke, so I doubt it was a serious stroke but enough to scare the living daylights out of him. Sometimes, that’s what it takes. I like Mr. Luntz and wish him good health.
He’s done a great job losing that weight but it’ll be difficult to maintain that level for long. If he keeps at it, the diet and the workout, he will be fine.
