Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has dropped 10 pounds in his first seven days of dieting.
Last week Ford, along with his brother and fellow city council member Doug Ford, launched a public weight loss campaign. They invited the public to join in and are planning to stage a series of public weigh-ins.
On Monday the mayor reported he is now down to 320 pounds thanks to a regime of running, lifting weights and “eating like a rabbit.”
Doug Ford has shed nine pounds and is down to 266. He described the weight loss campaign as the toughest thing he and his brother have ever done.
