DJ Khaled’s Weight Loss Journey
Khaled started his weight loss journey in the December of 2017. And within a couple of months, DJ was enjoying a far more healthy physique. Talking about his weight loss, he said that the main reason behind his weight loss was his family.
DJ said that he didn’t care about his weight and appearance and that he only lost weight because he wanted to be there for his loved ones. “I have to love myself to take care of the people that I love,” DJ said, “It’s not a priority, it’s the only priority.”
How did DJ Khaled Lose Weight?
Khaled lost weight by maintaining a healthy diet. With the help of WW, he stayed away from unhealthy foods.
DJ followed WW’s freestyle diet program to get in better shape. Along with controlling his calorie intake, DJ also got involved in physical activities such as exercising.
DJ Khaled’s Diet Plan
To shed pounds, Khaled changed his diet plan. Whereas before he ate whatever he wanted, now DJ turned to a more disciplined and healthy diet. On the suggestion of WW, Khaled eliminated rice and bread completely from his diet.
Khaled described those two foods as his “weakness” but he had to let them go. He also reduced the processed sugar consumption from his diet. “I love pumpkin pie, I love sweet potato pie. Who doesn’t? But I touch that and it still pleases my taste buds,” he said. “I’m not gonna eat it seven days a week now. I might eat it once a week and it’s like a celebration.”
DJ started eating more of a plant-based diet. Talking about his dilemma at restaurants, Khaled said, “If I go to a restaurant, I’ll order what I love. But I’m going to think about every time I order something, know what I’m sayin’? If I order a cappuccino, it’s what’s that sugar called? It’s “stevia” instead of sugar, know what I’m sayin’? I eat more fish and salad.”
By following this healthy and more disciplined diet, DJ succeeded in getting rid of the extra pounds. Although with somewhat difficulty, he succeeded in sticking to a diet plan. However, things weren’t the same when it came to working out.
DJ Khaled’s Workout Plan

DJ starts his day by walking for a mile. He also does cardio workouts. Khaled said that he worked out with his two-year-old son, Asahd.
“My son loves working out with me,” he said, “He loves to workout on his little toy bike right beside me. I feel like it’s my job as a parent and for the love of my son that I teach him everything correct.” To forget the workout’s difficulty, DJ listens to music while exercising.
