Here, we provide you details about why Sean lost weight and his secrets to his slimmer self as well.
Why did Sean Hannity Lose Weight?
First things first, Sean Hannity decided he needed to lose weight during the fall of 2012. How? Well, one of his friends took a picture of him while playing golf, and in his own words, “It was hideous.”
I looked four months pregnant. I had man boobs.
He asked himself what he was doing with his body, and it seems like his mind didn’t have an answer. This was it for Hannity as he took an oath that day. He started dieting and working out, and now, look at him, he’s all skinny, eh?
Sean Hannity’ Weight Loss Secrets
Jumping on to what Sean Hannity used to shed pounds, he used three or four days of training per week and a ketogenic Atkins diet plan.
The man started his weight loss journey by following the Atkins diet, low carbs, and high protein, at around Christmas. He saw a loss of 6 to 7 pounds with just a simple diet plan within a week.
In six weeks, he was at 180 pounds (270 pounds before) which meant, she had lost a whopping 27 pounds.
For exercise, he took up kickboxing, Japanese jujitsu, submission, grappling, Filipino martial arts, and even blade and firearms training. Hannity jokes that his trainer calls these mix of styles the ‘street martial arts.’
It’s one nonstop hour of competitive intensity. At the end, I can barely keep my arms up.
This is not all for Sean, as he also gets self-defense training. As he revealed, his trainer attacks him, tries to put him down, and he’ll need to grapple and throw him down.
Take any scenario: Come up to me from behind, put me in a chokehold, put a gun to my head, threaten me with a knife, and I know how to get out of it.
This sure sounds scary, right? Well, it was way scarier for him when he received threats, which, as a result, has made him carry a firearm for most of his adult life. He says he has been confronted many a time and he also divulges that he can handle himself pretty well.
