CEE LO GREEN is embarking on a health kick in 2013 in a bid to slim down.
The Forget You hitmaker is famed for his bulky frame, but he has signed up as an ambassador for eDiets.com in an effort to lose weight ahead of his upcoming Las Vegas residency.
Green will use the company's meal delivery service and he hopes to inspire others aiming to shed the pounds.
He says, "With the strenuous rehearsals and big production of my upcoming Vegas residency Loberace kicking off in February, I've personally committed to making health a habit in the New Year.
"When I decided to make this commitment to myself, I needed a program that would work with my nonstop lifestyle, and eDiets has made it easy and convenient to make health a priority between recording new music, constant traveling and being a father."
Green revealed earlier this year (12) he was planning a major slim down following the deaths of pals Heavy D and comedian Patrice O'Neal.
He told Rolling Stone magazine, "I want to be healthy. I lost a few really good friends... I lost my friend Heavy D recently, and I was friends with Patrice O'Neal... I'm looking at them and noticing the similarities. I've got a young son and I want to be around for him."
