Tyson Fury’s Weight Loss Journey
In order to get lighter, Fury contacted Connor McGregor’s nutritionist, George Lockhart. George helped Tyson in losing weight by making him stick to a healthy diet.
While George made sure that Fury didn’t eat anything unhealthy, his personal trainer and coach, Ben Davison, helped him in working out.
And when such a great duo has got your back, there’s nothing to worry about. With the help of George and Ben, Tyson made the process of weight loss faster and more efficient. Following are the details about the foods that Tyson ate and the workouts that he did to lose weight
Tyson’s Diet Plan
“At the beginning, it was a rough estimate by fat percentage, height, weight, and age but after working with him you get to see how well his body responds to certain foods and how he feels. If he’s eating too much or not eating enough,” Lockhart told Planet Sport.
Before embarking on his weight loss journey, Fury consumed around 4,000 calories each day, now with the help of George, he reduced the number to just 2,800 calories.
Talking about Fury’s diet, Lockhart said, “He eats different meals every single day. If we feed him the same thing every single day then it’ll get old but the more variety you get, the more nutrients you’ll get.”
Tyson started including red meat, chicken, fish, rice, potatoes, blueberries, bananas, broccoli, Greek yogurt, avocado, salmon, spinach, and many more green veggies in his diet. Tyson would have 4 days a meal. He would eat a big bowl of green salad at night.
When asked how much Fury eats, George said, “I thought I would be cooking for an army to feed this guy but Tyson’s not really a big eater. Calories right now, if I work the mean out its about 2,800 calories a day. We’re trying to shove food down his throat.”
He significantly reduced the amount of oil in his food. Fury would also eat raw vegetables along with fruits.
In fact, fruits were a great source of sugar for him since he gave up all kinds of sugary processed foods. He would also drink a lot of water. Partly to kill the urges of unnecessary hunger and partly to keep himself hydrated while working out.
Tyson Fury’s Workout Plan
While George was preparing a healthy diet plan for Fury, Ben carved out an efficient and healthy workout routine to be followed. Tyson would start his day by running for a mile after which he would have his breakfast. And then it was time of hitting the gym.
Fury visited thy gym two times a day. In the morning after breakfast and then at night after dinner. He would spend 5 hours a day at the gym. That’s how Fury lost more than 100 pounds successfully in a very short period of time.
Tyson would do all kinds of workouts. He would do heavy weight lifting and run on the treadmill, do push-ups, pull-ups, squats, lunges, crunches, sit-ups, and boxing. Fury also engaged in hiking. Ben made sure that Fury lose his fat while gaining more muscles.
