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!”

Greekgodx’s weight loss success

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.

Greek’s goal weight

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.

TikTok has undeniably become a great way for people to find the content they like, make new friends and connect with like-minded people, just like any social media platform does — but you might want a bit more privacy on the app, and turning off Direct Messages might be the perfect solution.

You might want to turn DMs off for any number of reasons. You might be getting spammed, or receiving unwanted messages, and you want to block them out completely.

By default TikTok lets you share DMs with Friends on the app, or someone that you follow and follows you back.

But you can change the settings to better suit you if you don’t want to receive direct messages at all, regardless of the reason you want to prevent them.

If you’re getting unwanted DMs, it’s possible to turn them off.

How to turn off TikTok DMs

If you would prefer that you can’t be reached out to at all on TikTok, the process of changing your settings is actually really simple.

To stop even ‘Friends’ from DMing you on TikTok and closing them completely, here’s what you’ve got to do:

  1. Open your TikTok app.
  2. Click on the ‘Me’ tab.
  3. Press the three dots in the top right corner of the screen to access your Settings and Privacy.
  4. Click Privacy.
  5. Scroll down and, under the ‘Safety’ list, press ‘Who can send you direct messages’.
  6. Change the setting from Friends to No one.

It’s very easy to turn off your DMs on TikTok.

After doing this, your direct messages will be closed off to everyone on the app, whether you follow them or not.

This is perfect if you’re getting spammed or receiving unwanted messages, especially from people you don’t know, and if you don’t want to unfollow them.

How to remove followers

As mentioned, one alternative to closing your direct messages (if you want to leave them open to friends) is by removing followers. This could mean either unfollowing the user, or removing them as one of your followers. Here’s how to do either of the above:

To unfollow a user:

  • Go to that user’s profile
  • Tap the “Following” icon
  • You should now no longer be following them

To remove a user from your followers:

  • Go to that user’s profile
  • Tap the three dots in the top right corner
  • Tap “Remove this follower”

By following any of the above steps, you can completely turn off your DMs on TikTok, or just stop certain people from reaching out to you. Please also bear in mind that, if somebody is bothering you on the platform, you should also report them to let TikTok know so they can take appropriate action.
