While there is a 12-step program to help recovery from alcohol addiction, the “Every Step Counts” campaign is ironically geared to create addicts, in exercise, and superstar Hussein Al Jassmi is their main man.
The UAE singer used to actually be obese, weighing in at 148 kilos.
“I never followed a healthy lifestyle due to my work schedule, but once I underwent surgery to tie my stomach, I began exercising regularly and became an addict. Now I feel lost when I do not exercise and I began being more active in public events and more confident about myself,” the X Factor judge shared at a press conference.
The conference held at the Marriot Hotel in Dubai announced Hussein’s appointment as Goodwill Ambassador to the “Every Step Counts” campaign sponsored by the company Du.
According to Sayidaty.net, the songster is pumped about Du’s campaign and hopes he will meet their standards as a symbol for healthy living.
