Keegan Bradley seems to be in much better shape after the significant weight loss of 30 pounds he had, seeing how he opened the Sentry Tournament of Champions with a three-under 70 that included birdies on two of his last three holes. He was 190 pounds in 2008 when he turned pro and over the years, he had gone up to 220 pounds, which he felt affected his game because he always felt fatigued. Keegan Bradley followed a meat-only diet supervised by UpWellNess nutrition company and incorporated a cardio exercise regimen for the weight loss process.

Keegan Bradley's Weight Loss: Check Out the Details of His UpWellNess Diet and His Exercise Regime!
Keegan Bradley (@keeganbradley1) had one of the most stunning transformations among golf players after an incredible weight loss of 30 pounds in just five months. He had gone up to 220 pounds from 190 pounds before he decided to lighten up. And now, he's back to 190 pounds.
Keegan Bradley didn't think about how bigger he had become for an athlete until the BMW Championship at Wilmington Country Club in Delaware when he shot a closing five-over 76 to finish T-58 and failed to advance to the Tour Championship. He failed to swing optimally and realized that he wasn’t in the kind of shape required to play his best golf. He said that he felt like he was kind of fatiguing.
So, Keegan Bradley decided to undergo weight loss in order to improve his overall health when he had the realization that he played his best golf and he swung a lot better when he was super lean. (Think of him in his first tour.) He consulted Dr.Joshua Levitt who introduced him to UpWellNess, a nutritional company called he co-founded with his wife Amanda. Under the supervision of UpWellNess, he made radical changes to his diet to almost. nothing but meat. In his words,
If it walks, swims or flies, you can eat it, and I did a lot of fruit as well. So, I'd have eggs in the morning, maybe chicken or ground beef for lunch and then steak at night. All grass-fed meat is the key. No vegetables. And no condiments, no sides, no starches, not even ketchup. All I did was salt, pepper … and some hot sauce.
Keegan Bradley found it mentally challenging to stay committed to the diet recommended by UpWellNess but the golfer was determined to see how weight loss would impact his game. So, he pulled off the dietary transition successfully and he even cut out soda and Gatorade. Plus, he also incorporated a cardio regimen which included stationary bike and elliptical training and only light weightlifting.
Keegan Bradley kept up with the UpWellNess diet and the cardio exercise regimen for months even when there were difficult times like when he would crave a piece of pizza or pasta. But he would then remind himself that all this was part of the weight loss journey, which was very important for him in his career. Now, he feels good and proud about sticking to his diet.
And why would he not when his game completely changed for the better after the weight loss? By mid-October when he showed up at the Zozo Championship in Japan, Keegan Bradley, who was back down to 190 pounds, was swinging with more ease than he had felt in a while.
At Zozo, coming down the stretch, I felt so good and that whole week I felt so good.
And at a T-5 at the Sanderson Farms Championship to begin the fall season, he put together four solid rounds at Accordia Golf Narshino Country Club, including a closing two-under 68, and defeated Rickie Fowler and Andrew Putnam by a stroke for his fifth PGA Tour title but first since 2018.
And now, Keegan Bradley is at the plantation Course at Kapalua Resort, where he opened the Sentry Tournament of Champions with a three-under 70 that included birdies on two of his last three holes.
Keegan Bradley is also second in the FedEx Cup standings and is very confident and has said that he firmly believes he is in the best position in years to succeed and achieve his goals. He has taken a step back off his carnivore diet slightly because he is currently done with the weight loss of 30 pounds.
