In 2018, Reza Farahan set out on a mission. Aiming to "get back to to 20-something-year-old Reza," the Shahs of Sunset cast member took up long-distance running and made some considerable changes to his eating habits. Before long, Reza had dropped 40 pounds. Then, in 2019, he took to Instagram with a triumphant announcement: "IT’S OFFICIAL!!! I’m basically willing to do anything, so I can hashtag a bitch lost 50 lbs... AND I'M ALMOST THERE."
Now that he officially can use the hashtag of his dreams, a 50-pounds-lighter Reza has been open about how he maintains his considerable weight loss. When giving BravoTV.com cameras a tour of his refrigerator, the haircare entrepreneur patted his abs as he admitted, "Not much to look at in my refrigerator, but that's how I'm keeping this s--t flat right here."
He also noted the sweets on his countertop and made it clear: "I want to point out that these cakes are decorative, because a bitch lost 50 pounds, and I'm not trying to gain it back."
But even though Reza has embraced a healthier lifestyle, he still struggles with body image. "I've lost 50 pounds, but unfortunately I have body dismorphic disorder," Reza confessed exclusively to BravoTV.com. "I still look in the mirror, and see someone very rotund." Watch the clip above to hear Reza's heartbreaking confession.
