World’s Strongest Man Eddie ‘The Beast’ Hall Loses Over 80 Pounds With New Diet And Workout Regimen

Eddie “The Beast” Hall won the World’s Strongest Man competition in 2017 and has won multiple UK’s Strongest Man and England’s Strongest Man titles. The 31-year-old British strongman also holds the world record deadlift holder, lifting 1,100 pounds. But The Beast was worried about health-related issues and decided he needed to slim down. Eddie lost an incredible 84 pounds by changing his diet and altering his workout regimen.

After winning the 2017 World’s Strongest Man competition, Eddie announced that he would retire from professional strongman competition in May of 2017 and return to lower-weight contests. Retiring from the professional strongman circuit allowed Hall to focus on his personal health. At 6-foot-3-inches and tipping the scales at 433 lbs, Eddie decided to make some big changes in his life for the better.

“Once I’d won it [World’s Strongest Man], I’d achieved my life long dream,” Hall told Express. “I knew that I was pushing the boundaries. I knew that I was basically risking my life with all the health factors – it’s very unhealthy being that big.

Hall has dropped over 80 pounds and credits his tremendous transformation to a new diet and adding cardio to his exercise routine. Hall said he “cut out a lot of carbs.” The Beast went on a keto diet. “Diet wise, all I’ve done is basically cut out carbs nearly completely. I’m basically on an all-protein, all-fat diet.”

Hall also modified his gym routine by increasing the amount of cardiovascular training he was doing. “But, what I do now is I’ve thrown in a couple of boxing sessions a week. I do a land-based training session, I do a swimming session, and then I bought a push-bike as well so I’m doing a lot of cycling as well,” Eddie explained. “I’ve probably piled on about five or six hours a week in cardio on top of my weight training.”

“I feel really good at this weight,” Hall said. “I’ve got a six pack and I’m quite happy to stay at this, until I get a bit older [in his late 40s and 50s], when maybe I’ll have to reduce the weight a little bit more.”

Despite shedding the weight, The Beast can still lift with the best of them. Here he is bench pressing 485 pounds.

Here is Eddie doing “some light reps on the leg press.” Light reps. Congratulation to Eddie Hall on his amazing body transformation and to continued good health, but maybe cut down on the piles of meats covered in cheese.
