Nagbawas na ng Extra Rice! Beau Belga shares secret behind 30-pound weight loss

291

“Big” Beau Belga began his weight-loss journey for him to prolong his career.

From 290 pounds, the “Extra Rice Inc.,” captain shed 30 pounds of weight.

The 34-year old explained that he doesn’t have any specific diet, but he makes sure to make it up with his rigorous workouts.

“Sabi ko nga hindi uso yung diet sa akin, e. Kinakain ko kung ano yung gusto ko,” Belga told Spin.ph

“But at the same time, kailangan kong sunugin. Kailangan kong i-gym, kailangan kong i-workout. Yun lang naman, e. Yung mga taba-taba iko-convert sa muscles, kunwari. Kasi meron din naman akong career na dapat alagaan. Yun ang iniisip ko sa sarili ko.”

The 13-year veteran knows that he still has miles left on his legs, and in order for him to prevent any injuries before “Father Time” gets him, Belga had to lose some extra weight in order to still keep up on the court.

“Sabi ko nga pag ako sumakit na ang tuhod ko ibig sabihin nun mabigat na ako,” said Belga. “So far nakakatagal pa naman ako sa practice namin. Wala pa naman akong iniinda, sa awa ng Diyos.”
