Tyson Fury weight loss: What is the ‘Dirty Keto’ diet? How the Gypsy King lost 10st

Former heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury will enter the ring again this weekend when he faces Tom Schwarz.

It will be the first time Tyson fights since he drew in his match against the American WBC champion Deontay Wilder on December 1, 2018.

In the year leading to the match the Gypsy King weighed 28st 5lbs, but he decided he needed to shift the weight.

Fury drastically ballooned in weight during his two-and-a-half year absence from the boxing ring.

After beating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 he started piling on the pounds.

In a bid to get fitter ahead of the boxing fight, Fury has embarked on an intense weight loss journey.

Losing 10st 14lbs since May 2017, he is now down to an impressive 18st 4lbs – and has managed to keep it off.

The boxer is in the best shape of his life, and credits it to the “Dirty Keto” diet.

Despite having lost so much weight, Fury acknowledged the “Dirty Keto” diet’s benefits don’t make up for its flaws.

He said: “The keto diet done correct is ok, but I was doing it dirty.

“I was having four double patties with cheese and mayonnaise. Full of fat and grease, it can’t be good for your arteries.”
