Tyson Fury weight loss: Boxer wows with slim frame at Sports Personality of the Year 2018
Tyson Fury has lost an incredible 10 stone in recent times.
The British sports star, 30, appeared with his wife Paris on the red carpet last night.
Looking dapper in a black suit, Tyson smiled for the camera’s at the event in Birmingham.
Looking healthy and slim, he wrapped his arm around his wife, who wore a gold gown.
The boxer slimmed down recently for his fight with Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles.
The fight, which took place on December 1, was declared a split decision draw.
Tyson’s weight loss was down, in part, to the Keto diet.
This popular diet is high in fat and protein and lower in carbohydrates.
His coach Kristian Blacklock devised the programme, and revealed: “Tyson’s not a massive veg lover, but we do find there are things he will have.
“There’s a peanut butter chicken recipe we’ve had on this camp which has been his favourite, cooked by his chef Tim Alcock.
“If you’re enjoying your food, dieting it a hell of a lot easier.”
What is the keto diet?
Keto’ allows the body to switch from burning carbs and sugar for energy to fat, putting the body into a state of “ketosis”, effectively a “fat burning machine” – as described by a diet expert at Diet Doctor.
They explain: “Ketones are produced if you eat very few carbs (that are quickly broken down into blood sugar) and only moderate amounts of protein (excess protein can also be converted to blood sugar).
“The liver produces ketones from fat. These ketones then serve as a fuel source throughout the body, especially for the brain.”
Tyson has also been vocal about his battle with depression in the past.
Last night he gave a message about mental health. He said: “The mental health story we need to spread he world of mental health more.
“Because a lot of people are still living in darkness.”
Speaking of talking about mental health, he said: “If I can do it and get help anyone can do it.”
