How did Ethan AKA Behzinga Lose Weight?
Ethan Payne AKA Behzinga dropped 30 kgs of weight to be the lean man he is today. He was 240 lbs or 108.8 kg when he started his journey. But, now after a year or so, he is at 171 bs or 78 kg.
The West Ham United fan started his weight loss journey around February 18, 2018, alongside his personal trainer, Dida. He performed strength and hypertrophy program two days a week during the beginning. But, later on, he stuck to the push-pull leg workout regimen six days a week, and sometimes even seven.
As for his dietary restrictions, he refrained from drinking fizzy drinks and just drank water; 2 liters a day minimum. Besides, he also banned processed food from his meal and ate only whole foods. In addition to whole foods, he drank BCAAs, pre-workout, and post-workout supplements.
There’s another thing Behzinga stuck to during his weight loss journey and that’s intermittent fasting. Yes, you heard that right! The 5 feet 9 inches tall YouTuber also logged his eating habits and his workout routines on the MyFitnessPal app, just like the celebrity chef Maneet Chauhan.
A normal day in the life of Behzinga starts with green tea. Then after a couple of hours, he consumes BCAAs and pre-workout. He goes to the gym, gets back, and misses breakfast due to his intermittent fasting. Following this, he eats a post-workout meal and that’s about it.
What Tips does Behzinga Give to His Followers’ for their Weight Loss?
Behzinga wants to help his fans lose weight, the same way he did. So, he offers a plan to his fans; a number of things to follow to lose weight.
- Calorie Deficit
- Consistency and Hard Work
It’s a known fact that eating less than what your body burns, will always help you shed some pounds. First, check out your BMR or your maintenance calories. Then, eat 500 calories less than what you need and this will definitely drop your weight by one kg per week.
The other thing that should be followed is being patient. You won’t get a lean body in just a month or two. You need to have a little bit of patience. It takes at least three to four months to actually get the results so, keep in mind, Patience is key!
Consistency and Hard Work
We won’t have to tell you about hard work, right? People tend to lose hope after a month or two of working out, so they work out inconsistently, they won’t take note of their calorie intake regularly. So, do remember to regularly burn the candle at both ends.
