He started doing intermittent fasting.
When Farahan started adhering strictly to his nutritionist's recommendations, he began giving himself a daily break from food by way of a fast.
"I started intermittent fasting," he said, noting that it wasn't always an easy thing to do. "I was very angry in the beginning. A little testy. I'm not going to lie," Farahan explained.
He started working out consistently.
On his Instagram account, Farahan has been sharing his workouts with trainers Mary Mirolla and Ryan Gentry, including weight-based workouts and high-intensity interval training.
"Work hard. Push yourself. Stay consistent. Be patient. Never give up," he captioned a recent workout video.
He says he's no longer embarrassed by his body.
While Farahan may exude confidence, he admitted to HollywoodLife that he'd only recently become truly comfortable in his body.
"I'm not embarrassed to take my shirt off. There's no tire," he explained.
"Honestly, I just do whatever I want now," he added.
