Kevin Federline was on the Bonnie Hunt show earlier this week and I have to say that the guy seemed much humbler and soft spoken than he has in the past. (You can see the video here.) He talked about how depressed and affected he was by his ex wife Britney’s public downfall during their divorce and how he took comfort in eating and sitting on the couch. He’s addressed this in the past while promoting his appearance on Celebrity Fit Club, airing now. I was really impressed by how sincere and genuine he seemed. He didn’t come across as a dick at all, and that’s high praise considering what a materialistic ass he was before he gained and then lost all that weight.
Kevin also said that he loves both Britney Spears and Shar Jackson, the mothers of his four children. He said he’s reached a point with both of them where they’re friends and are successfully coparenting. He sounded very grateful to have them in his life.
I’m really fortunate to have both of those people in my life… and as mothers of my children. In all actuality they are very very understanding… I love both of them very much. I still to this day I love them both.
In their coverage of this story, The Sun focuses on the fact that Kevin drank a whopping 12-24 cans of soda a day. It wasn’t diet soda and he called it his “coffee and candy.” He also said he ate comfort food like pizza and macaroni and cheese and his only exercise was playing with his kids. At his heaviest the 6′ tall former backup dancer was 240 pounds.
The former dancer, who recently appeared on Celebrity FIT club in the US, blamed his unhealthy diet and subsequent weight gain on his split from BRITNEY SPEARS.
He told chat show host BONNIE HUNT: “I didn’t drink water, that was all I drank.
“That was my coffee and my candy.”
K-Fed admitted spending days on the couch eating pizza and Macaroni cheese, his only exercise being playing with his young kids.
He suffered depression following the end of his two-year marriage to Britney and revealed watching his ex-wife’s meltdown made things worse – leading to his lust for food.
He added: “I hit 30-years-old, I stop dancing, started eating and sitting on the couch playing with the kids here and there.
“I got lazier and lazier, and fatter and fatter.”

I couldn’t figure out exactly how much weight K-well fed has lost, but it looked like at least 40 pounds when he first did the talk show circuit a couple of months ago. Now he’s gained some back. Hopefully he’s switched to diet soda and water. I’ve heard other people who’ve lost weight mention that they drank more than two liters of soda a day. Just one can has over 10 teaspoons of sugar in it! Imagine what more than 120 teaspoons of sugar a day can do to your body.
