Tonys weight gain

Recommended Posts

Blender_Guy

Anyone else thinks its pretty ridiculous that Tony went so obese in just 2 years? He is as fat as Big Smoke in 2001.

If you think about how skinny and fit he was in 1999 since he was always in motion by running and jumping around and shooting people like a lunatic.

It just seems like Rockstar never planned on bringing Tony Cipriani as a protagonist back.

Well, as much as this might be unrelated, I know real life cases which went from being obese and having greasy, long hair to being slim, fit and stylish. In just two years.

 

Alas, anything can happen with enough motivation or lack of therefore. Given Toni's circumstances and the three years between the two games, it makes some sense on a logical level.

I don't think it's a matter of constantly eating that made him fat, if anything it's more his lack of exercise after eating.

 

Think of that old movie "Supersize Me", for example. Some guy gained about 200 pounds in just 30 days by not only eating McDonald's for every meal, but also by not exercising after. Considering how Toni ran around, got into fights, etc. on the daily in LCS, and how inactive he is in III, you could assume that he just got more lazy as well as hungry.

Actually it's 3 years, but even if they were two - it's absolutely possible, man. You can turn yourself into a pig for 2-3 years if you don't move a lot. I remember how I gained more than 10 kg for one year just because I started going to work with my car instead of walking. Just like the others said - if he stopped exercising after the events in LCS, And I also blame his mother :D She always complained about him being skinny. After he became a "made man", he (probably) earned her respect and started spending more time with her. I just imagine how she constantly serves meals for him and says stuff like "Come on, Toni, eat your (5th)dinner, you are skinny. You don't look like a real man" :D In GTA3 you only see him sitting at his mom's restourant, and I guess that's where he spends his whole day.

I remember on the cutscene of Cam-Pain, Donald offers Toni to eat "chicken" but he refuses, probably trying to avoid being fat.

He actually gained about 30 pounds. Anyway, it seems like after the events of LCS, Toni probably gave up being active and and just took on a sedentary lifestyle. Then again, people have said the same thing about Vic as how he looked in Vice City in comparison to VCS.

Well, after living with that mother I'm sure he just couldn't take it anymore and gave in.

Obviously stress from his mother, but Toni was also concepted to resemble Tony Soprano both personally and physically in GTA:III. The call to make him the protagonist of GTA:LCS had to definitely come after 2001 and they made him leaner for his 1998 role because a fat f*ck gunning down Mafia members and running from the police wouldn't be too believable.

Not all that unrealistic, considering the stresses of the job highlighted above. CJ can gain much more weight whilst we're still playing as him, so it isn't unreasonable that a steady diet of olive oil and sitting on a patio would see Toni grow tits. I dare say almost every protagonist we play as across the series has some baggage to contend with by the time we've finished the story.

Into the lean and slippered pantaloon,

With spectacles on nose and pouch on side

 

That's Shakesphere. And Tony was in his 40s and like Craig said above, every Protagonist has some baggage to contend with. Toni became the Leone Underboss. There was nothing more he could have wanted. He had the Luxury of life which he decided to spend in some hearty eating. And it's probably Ma Cipriani's food that made him fat.

It is very weird... I know it is possible to age a lot and get fat in a matter of three years, but come on. In GTA LCS Toni looks like he's in his mid-to-late 30's while in III he looks like he's in his early 50's.

Yes, true that. He really looks like at least 10 years old in GTA 3.

Just like they say in one stupid Black Eyed Peas song:

"Where'd you get your body from?"

"I got it from my momma"

:D

Family can do that to someone.

I feel like he got fat because he don't have to do that much work since he became a made man 

And now he having other people working for him

Remember its a running gag that everyone says he's too thin plus he's a higher rank now so he doesn't have to engage in much physical activity due to younger wise guys doing the killing for him now

By the way, any tips on how to become more active or names of normal everyday food is good for health? Like milk or anything.

I went from being skinny all my childhood and early teens, to obese in a matter of a few years and then back down to overweight.

 

It's certainly possible for Toni to have changed weight within a few years, a combination of punk noodles visits and meals with his mother. Plus I imagine he took on a less involved role after the events of LCS, not running around doing as much as he did.  Maybe also needing to lay low after blowing up Fort Staunton.

Lean meats like turkey and chicken drink lots of water and milk is lean and a good source of protein. Also cardio like jogging and jump rope.
