Vince has always been successful in everything he’s done. He was even the class president in his school!
When Vince ventured into the music industry, he achieved one milestone after another. Herbert, who is a songwriter, record producer, record executive, and the founder of Streamline Records, was making waves.
But recently, Vince surprised his fans in an unexpected way. It wasn’t his music that shocked everyone this time, but his appearance. After months out of the spotlight, he walked the red carpet, and Herbert was hardly recognizable.
He had shed a lot of weight, around 100 pounds in total. This left his fans utterly astonished. As soon as they saw the new Vince, they hurried to the internet to figure out what had happened.
Many people thought Herbert might be sick or battling some illness, but that wasn’t the case. While he did have some health issues, he decided to lose weight to tackle these problems.

Why did Herbert Lose Weight?
Throughout his music career, Herbert didn’t have much time to take care of his health. His eating habits got very disturbed and he couldn’t even find time for exercise. As a result, Vince started gaining extra weight.
Slowly and gradually his weight started slowing him down. The alarming moment came when Vince felt pain in the chest. He rushed to the doctor, who informed Vince that he was having multiple blood clots and had to undergo surgery in order to lose weight.
Describing the situation, his then-wife, Tamar Braxton, said, “He had seven blood clots and what I do want to say about that is you’ve got to be really careful. You’ve got to get checked to make sure that your blood is not too thick.”
Vince’s Weight Loss Journey
After finding out about the blood clots, Herbert started taking his health seriously. He embarked on the journey to lose weight. As the doctor suggested, Vince underwent surgery. And not one surgery but multiple surgeries.
Talking with People, Braxton said, “I had to be very supportive of him, he had a couple of surgeries. Not like really cosmetic surgeries, but like medical surgeries to help him to lose weight because he had medical problems due to the weight.”
After the surgeries were done, Herbert now had to maintain discipline in his life. He had to change his whole diet plan in order to remain healthy.
The main reason behind Vince’s weight gain was his love for fast food. He couldn’t get more of it. Grabbing a pizza or burger was a part of his daily routine. And it would not go down without soda. So, basically, it was all a recipe for gaining weight.
But of course, Herbert didn’t know at that time how much eating habits would cost him. Now, it all had to be stopped. Otherwise, Vince would have to face serious consequences. Of course, giving up what you love is not easy. Herbert had a hard time giving up fast food but he got over it.
Now, he focused on a more healthy diet. He started eating vegetables and fruits instead of pizza. And in place of soda, Vince chose between gorge and carrot juices. At first, it was hard to stick to this diet but Vince knew that it was in his best interest and his mere health was on the stack.
This new healthy diet helped him keep his health after surgery and also proved to be efficient in losing further weight. He switched to this diet plan and now strictly follows it.
The doctor also advised Vince to keep moving. Vince was told that if he kept sitting in one place and didn’t do exercise to burn calories, he would regain the lost weight, which is no less than a nightmare. Herbert started going for walks in the morning and evening.
He would walk for an hour. Vince also took the help of the ancient practice of yoga to keep his mind at peace while drastically changing his daily routine. Herbert would also engage in sports activities such as swimming and cycling.
Before & After Weight Loss
Before Vince had surgery and began his weight loss journey, he weighed around 300 pounds, which was a cause for concern. But now, after shedding 100 pounds, he weighs between 200 and 190 pounds, which is a significant improvement.
Yes, Herbert was facing serious health issues. The blood clots in his body could have caused a heart attack but he didn’t despair after finding out about them. Rather, he fought them and in the end, overcame his health issues. He now lives a healthy life and encourages others to do so.
