Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a top rumored contender for the 2024 GOP nomination, revealed his secret to weight loss: stay away from the sugar.

During an exclusive interview with Piers Morgan that aired on Fox Nation Thursday, DeSantis was asked about his recent weight loss and how he is staying fit while leading the Sunshine State.

“At the end of the day, it’s like New Year’s resolution. Just get back in the swing of things. I have the same thing. I’m a vet. I’m an athlete and a military veteran. And so as governor, you can get caught up in a lot of other stuff,” DeSantis said.

He continued, “I’m on a good regimen and will keep it going…I think the sugar is the biggest issue because basically if you do sugar, your body burns sugar. If you don’t, it burns fat,” highlighting the importance of “working out and just eating halfway decent.”

Morgan then asked about the recent “scandal” going around in the media about DeSantis eating pudding with his fingers.

He asked, “Have you ever eaten a chocolate pudding with three fingers?”

DeSantis laughed and replied, “I don’t remember ever doing that. I’m telling you, maybe when I was a kid.”

CEO Jason Howerton tweeted early March, “Holy cow, @GovRonDeSantis looks FIT and ready for combat. Not sure how much weight he’s lost, but his health/appearance is not going to be one of Trump’s punchlines in the debates.”

Morgan tweeted Tuesday, “UPDATE: I spent over an hour yesterday interviewing ⁦@GovRonDeSantis⁩ at his Governor mansion in Florida. We talked Trump, Biden, Ukraine, love, grief, chocolate cake & his likely run for President. He’s never given a more personal or revealing interview. Stay tuned!”

  1. I noticed that he lost some weight and felt he’s getting ready to run for President.
    I’ve been doing the same as he did, cutting my sugar intake. I have lost, since Christmas, about 10 lbs.

  2. I could care less about his weight loss. I care about Ron the Con’s PR phony sham

    He’s been running for both positions for months, sneaking around since Florida requires Resign to Run.

  3. He’s right….Burn the fat, not just sugar. Sugar is as addictive as cocaine.

    And its good to see leaders (gov or pres, teachers etc ) setting an example of good healthy eating/living.

  4. Good for you, get healthy Desantis. Back on weight watchers because sugar, carbs are addictive!
    Can’t live a long life if you are putting bumps in road. Cardiologist said get the weight back down so BMI is at a good place so spring has sprung and now walking and riding bike time and released from restrictions after rotator cuff surgery so it is good!

    • Along with high fructose corn syrup which seems to appear in everything on the shelves. I always read all labels for all ingredients. I research new items I would like to try but look at the ingredients online first. More than a few grams of sugar in a serving size, I pass it by. It is tough to find food with low sugar, low fat, low sodium and low carbs. Might as well eat rice cakes. MMMMMMMM, YUK.

  5. I seriously don’t give a rats ass if he lost a pound! I could care LESS about pretty boy Desantis at ALL. He better watch his junk talk cause ole pretty boy just BARELY won anyway. He doesn’t have a snowballs chance in HELL against the LEGIT’ President Trump. So dream on pretty boy & stick to being a gov cause you could NEVER handle a country! Lmao at even the THOUGHT! Trump 2024 & beyond!

    • But, but but….joe biden, the dumb ass donkey butt can’t handle a country. joe can’t walk and chew gum at the same time.

    EVERYONE is on the Ozempic ! That’s why you can’t get it !
