Meat Loaf to start new diet and fitness regime following on-stage collapse
'Bat Out Of Hell' hitmaker Meat Loaf has revealed that he's doing well since collapsing on stage back in mid-June and will be working on his health from here on out.
Speaking to Britain's Classic Rock magazine about his recovery, he explained that he is going to start a new fitness regime to help strengthen his body and improve his endurance:
"I’m okay. Weak. I’ve gotta go to physical therapy. I had back surgery and knee surgery within the last two years, and the knee surgery failed, so I haven’t been able to work out on tour. So I’m going to acupuncture, physical therapy, and a trainer, starting Monday for four days a week, an hour and a half each session."
He added: "I’m in the UK from August 28 to September 10 and then I come to New York for a week and I go to LA for a week, for promo, then I’m coming home to rest for four weeks and do more physical therapy, plus I’ve been on a diet and I’ve lost getting close to 20 pounds now."
"So before August 28 I will lose another 15 before I get to do promo in the U.K. So we’re trying to watch out for my health and make it easier onstage."
