Tyler Baltierra is embracing his new healthy lifestyle after dropping 30 pounds in two months. The Teen Mom OG star revealed via Twitter why he decided to get in shape — and how he’s maintaining his new slimmed-down figure.

“I’m not really ‘on a diet’ I just started caring more deeply about what I was putting in my body,” he wrote on Wednesday, January 31. “To jumpstart the weight loss, I cut out carbs (besides toast in the a.m.) filled up on fruit, smoked fish, & vegetables for lunch & ate lean meats, vegetables & salad for dinner.”

The change has even helped him get better in the kitchen. “The cool thing is, I’m actually learning how to cook pretty decent now!” he revealed. “Almost been 8 weeks since I made the decision to eat healthier & I’m down about 30lbs & I FEEL GREAT! #Motivated.”

Baltierra, 26, also joked to fans how he tries to keep away from junk food. “But how do you go to the store and just walk by muffins and chocolate and ice cream and act like they don’t even exist?! Ugh,” one fan asked.

Baltierra replied: “Idk how other people do it, but I just walk past them at & cuss at them & insult them profusely until I walk far enough away that they’re not tempting anymore lmao!”

The reality star initially revealed earlier this month that he dropped 26 pounds in five weeks. While concentrating on his health, he’s also been supporting his wife Catelynn Lowell, who announced on January 17 that she’s heading back to treatment to work on her “trauma and getting on different meds.”

The couple are parents of 3-year-old daughter Novalee. In the latest Teen Mom OG episode, Lowell revealed that she’s pregnant.
