Popular Twitch streamer Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos hasn’t been secretive about his exercise regime – and he’s finally revealed exactly much progress he’s made thanks to his efforts.

Greek opened up an April 27 broadcast with a major announcement, notifying his followers that he’d gone on a serious diet – reaching his lowest weight in over a year.

“I couldn’t have done it without you guys,” Greek said of his success. “You guys have been in there through thick and thin – mostly thick. We are finally under 300 pounds, boys!”

Greek’s diet had helped him shed major pounds, bringing the streamer down from 369 pounds to 299 pounds in a year-long period.

“I am officially a part of the under 300 lb club, and it feels too god damn good baby,” Greek Tweeted of his weight loss shortly thereafter.

However, Greek isn’t just on any diet; the streamer claimed that he’d gone on keto (a popular term for the Ketogenic diet), a program that harshly cuts out carbohydrates and sugars to help the body burn pure fat.

Despite his major success, Greek isn’t finished with his weight-loss, just yet; in fact, Greek claimed that he wouldn’t be happy until he reaches his goal weight of 250 pounds – a 49 pound difference from his current weight.

Greekgodx, Twitch / DotEsportsGreekgodx is a popular streamer on Twitch, boasting over 7 thousand followers as of April 28.

“I’m not happy until I reach 250 pounds, because I’ve still got fat everywhere,” he jokingly said of the matter. “I’m still 300 pounds, nonetheless. It’s not like I’m a skinny guy now.”

Greekgodx has even livstreamed himself exercising on the treadmill during his weight loss regime, resulting in a hilarious fail after his camera fell to the floor during one particularly impassioned rendition of ‘The Lion King’s’ ‘Hakuna Matata.’

Greek’s success follows a dramatic scandal from late March, after viewers from the streamer’s chat harassed a female GTA V roleplayer who had fudged a deal during one of his broadcasts.

However, Greek vehemently denied any involvement with the toxic viewers in question, later apologizing to the roleplayer – who had even cried due to the vitriol in her own stream of the game.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
