Braun Strowman on Being Happy With the Way He Looks Right Now
“I hated the way I looked,” Strowman said.
“I’ve always struggled with body dysmorphia. It’s still a tough battle, but I try to remind myself it’s a process and I have my whole life to work on this. I admire the work I’ve put into this to change my life for the better.
“I needed to make some changes in my life, and since I was given some extra time at home because of the pandemic, I wanted to do something positive with it. I worked with a nutritionist, I worked with a new trainer, and I revamped the way I ate and what I do at the gym.
It’s a whole new lifestyle. It’s been really cool for my mentality, and the feedback from people around the world has been so inspiring. I’ve had mothers message me that they’ve changed the way they cook for their kids.
Someone messaged me saying he lost 200 pounds after seeing my transformation. That’s very humbling. It’s been a learning process for me, and I am really enjoying the experience”. Strowman reveals that he is now 394 pounds.
Strowman stated that he is happy with the way he looks right now and can perform well in the ring. “I’m finally listening to my body,” Braun Strowman said. “I used to be so worried about just getting big.
I was on the path to doing a bodybuilding show until I tore my meniscus back at Survivor Series last year, and that put a damper on my cardio. A lot of this is mental, and I’m working to give people the absolute best I can”.
