The Reason Behind Megachurch Pastor Eddie Long's Sudden Massive Weight Loss

Controversial megachurch pastor Bishop Eddie Long dropped a significant amount of weight recently and revealed why in a new video.  

"This is Bishop Long. You say, 'Bishop! What happened to all of you?' Well, all of me is melting away," Long says in the video.  

The pastor, who has faced allegations and lawsuits over sexual coercion and ponzi schemes, says the weight loss is thanks to a new diet: He's "somewhat" vegan.   

The diet comes alongside the pastor's confession to suicidal thoughts earlier this year.  

"No medications. I'm on the medication that God gave to feed your immune system, to build you up, because you know what? If you really want to move through this world and have influence, you gotta be spiritual, you gotta walk by His commandments and you know you have to be healthy. You know the Bible says, 'Behold I want you to be in health,' and the prosperity and all of that and so I want to be in good health because I know God's given me something for me, for the church, for the kingdom and He's given you something," Long says.
