Gucci Mane is an American rapper and songwriter. His birth name is Radric Delantic Davis. But in the music industry, he is known as Gucci Mane. Davis’ childhood does not have good memories. He didn’t get the love of his father during his childhood because his father was busy hiding from the police.
I will use Gucci Mane’s real name, Davis, throughout this article. So, don’t get confused. Davis, himself, has had several problems during his high school days. When he was 15 years old, Davis was engaged in drug dealing. He did drug dealing as a hobby.
He was also interested in rap music since his childhood. He started rapping at the age of 14. After his first arrest, Davis started his music career and got serious about it. He released La Flare on St8drop records. And dropped his old hobby related to drugs.
However, despite his success and fame, Gucci Mane hasn’t succeeded in getting rid of the side effects of his old bad habits. Throughout, Mane has struggled with being overweight. And that is what we are going to talk about.
The American author and actor, Adam Richman, has also lost weight. Find out how he shed 66 pounds.
Gucci Mane’s Weight Loss Journey
Davis started considering his weight a problem and started doing something about it at the end of 2013. His real motivation came after his arrest in 2013. He remarked his motivation as:
“The day I got arrested and stopped doing drugs. Eventually, it started to dawn on me that I had to start taking better care of myself before I wind up backing into the same situation.”
Why did Davis Lose Weight?
At the start of the journey, he said “Getting all those things and bad habits out of life made me able to realize that listen, you got to work out, you got to eat better”. In 2016, when he appeared after a long time, Davis not only shocked his fans but everybody who saw him.
His body was totally different from that of old Davis. It can be said that Gucci Mane (Davis) was struggling with his weight as he once put it “I was drinking pints of lean a weak and smoking pounds of weed and just doing all kinds of drugs. I used to live a life of excess, greed, and gluttony”.
Fortunately, everything has changed now and Gucci Mane is living a life of health and modesty when it comes to his diet.
How did Davis Lose Weight?

Davis Diet Plan
Though Davis followed a strict diet plan, his main achievement was to restrain himself from ill things. He was involved in drugs for a long time. Davis struggled with drugs and got himself in jail for this many times.
As mentioned earlier, he admitted that he was addicted to weed and used to drink a lot. Of course, these bad habits contributed to his increasing weight. Davis’ weight loss owed to two important things, one, he got rid of drugs and excessive drinking, and second, he followed a healthy diet plan.
Gucci Mane’s diet plan was mainly composed of fruits. As he himself mentioned, “I eat squash, which I never ate before, along with zucchini.” He said “I eat a lot of cashews, apples, bananas, peanuts, and cashews. I love salmon and chicken.”
Gucci Mane also started drinking a lot of water as it helped him in keeping his body fit and hydrated. “I drink about 120 to 130 ounces of water a day. I drink a lot of water and I eat very clean.”
He said, “I mark everything that I eat on a chart so I can keep track of my daily intake”. He also mentioned his restraining himself from junk food “I keep away myself from fast food”.
Davis Workout Plan
Davis got involved in workouts and gymming for the purpose of losing weight. His day starts with the gym and it ends with the gym. Davis has improved his discipline so much and that is how he got the best results.
His exercise composes pushups, pull-ups, weight lifting, running, and cycling. He said in an interview, “I just love weight lifting I love stretching my muscles and I love the pain it causes”. He knows well enough that nothing can be achieved without incurring some pain and sacrifice.
