The 35-year-old first attempted to get healthy in 2006, but quit after losing 12 lbs. because “I was exhausted,” he told the magazine at the time. “It was making me sick.”
Soon after, Ruben became a vegetarian and dropped an astounding 70 lbs., but put much of it back on after his 2012 divorce.
The 15th season of The Biggest Loser premieres on October 8 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
Good luck, Ruben!
