The Love the Way You Lie hitmaker said in a recent interview that he was almost 104 kg when he entered rehab after he overdosed on pills back in 2007, which left him with a hole in his stomach. However, he didn't lose hope and began running 27 km a day on a treadmill that helped him sleep, a website reported.
The 42-year-old American rapper added that with the help of obsessive exercise regimen and by keeping a check on his calorie intake, he managed to lose 37 kg, and got down to a healthy weight of 67 kg.
Later, the legend rapper also began training by seeing Shaun T's fitness programmes and got so serious with it that initially he wasn't able to walk for two days.
Notably, as per Eminem's previous interview, the singer's drug addiction got worse in 2005, when he started mixing pills that was equal to four bags of heroin, and his health deteriorated to such an extent that if he wasn't hospitalised on time, he would have died.
The artist dedicated two of his albums Relapse in 2009 and Recovery in 2010 to detail the process of weaning himself off drugs.
