Vin Diesel allegedly gained 50 pounds in recent months, which increased his weight to 260 pounds.

In its September 20 issue, National Enquirer claimed that Diesel is having so much fun especially following the success of the Fast and Furious franchise.

The tabloid spoke with an alleged expert, who also raised concerns because of Diesel’s weight. Dr. Gabe Mirkin, a nutrition expert, that being 260 pounds is a dangerous place to be.

However, the so-called expert didn’t explain why he thinks so. It’s important to note that Diesel is a very active buy so it’s unlikely for him to not know how to take good care of himself.

According to the source, Diesel gained weight following the success of F9: The Fast Saga. The film has already broken box office records with its $704 million revenue and counting.

“Vin feels like he deserves time to enjoy the fruits of his success. Unfortunately, he’s enjoying a lot more than fruit,” the source said.

The source then said that Fast and Furious 10 won’t be released until 2023, so Diesel has plenty of time to try and lose weight. And this is also, allegedly, the reason why he’s not pressured to work out and eat healthily.

But Diesel’s good friend, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has allegedly been encouraging him to work out and lose weight or he would have a hard time later on.

“The Rock knows how tough it will be for Vin to get back into shape. He’s loving Vin’s lumpy look,” the source said.

To make their claims more convincing, the tabloid published a photo of Diesel looking a bit of the hefty side. But to say that he gained weight or that this is a cause for concern is deliberate body shaming.

A lot of people gained weight during the pandemic, and this doesn’t have anything to do with the success of Diesel’s Fast and Furious movie.

If this was the case, the actor would’ve already ballooned to 400 pounds because a lot of Fast and Furious movies have been released over the years.

The tabloid didn’t also interview Johnson to know what he thinks about his friend’s weight gain. But it’s highly likely for the actor to not have any care in the world because he’s aware of how active Diesel is.
