Bryson DeChambeau has admitted his radical and dramatic physical transformation has resulted in health problems and he has warned others against following his bulking diet.
DeChambeau who piled on the mass in order to become the longest driver on the PGA TOUR in 2020, the same year he won a US Open title at Winged Foot, confessed he has suffered stomach problems and mood swings as a result of his lifestyle.
“I had such huge mood swings from it,” DeChambeau told the 5 Clubs Podcast.
“I ate things that were not great for my system that I was very sensitive to and ultimately it got to the point where it was a little bit too much.
“I ate improperly for almost a year and a half and I was starting to feel weird, my gut was all messed up and so I went completely healthy and went on a Whole-30 diet, got a nutritionist. I was super-inflamed.”
After suffering with the side effects the 29-year-old admitted he had his ‘C game’ in 2022 but hopes a healthier approach will see him return to form in 2023.
“No. I mean, get stronger in a healthy way,” he said.
“Go get a blood sensitivity test and figure out what works best for your body to gain size and strength.”
DeChambeau is one of LIV Golf’s high-profile players and recently dropped outside the top-50 in the Official World Golf Rankings for the first time since 2018.
