New Birth Missionary Baptist Church’s senior pastor Eddie L. Long said in a statement released by the church that he was recovering from a “health challenge” but did not release any specifics.
Speculation has been rampant about the Lithonia pastor’s health since he recently posted a video showing a much-leaner physique.

He said he was eating a raw vegan diet and giving up on a “slave menu”. He said he trusts “God to
deliver me from” from the challenge.

“It is unrelated to the eating for life diet consisting of mostly raw vegetables that I am continuing, as part of a holistic approach to good health. At this time my family and I are requesting that you respect our privacy.”

He said he appreciates the prayers and support for him, his loved ones and church family.
In the video the megachurch pastor was seen working out and said he had fielded questions from concerned members of his church asking about his dramatic weight loss. Not long ago, Long appeared on the Steve Harvey Show to promote his new book.
