‘Teen Mom 2’s Cole DeBoer admitted to asking his wife Chelsea Houska for ‘advice’ when he started eating healthier and working out during his ’75 Hard Challenge’.
Cole DeBoer is looking incredible after completing the “75 Hard Challenge” on Aug. 28 and losing 15 lbs., and he wants to make sure everyone knows that his wife, Chelsea Houska, 29, had a lot to do with it. The 32-year-old Teen Mom 2 star spoke EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife about how Chelsea’s healthy eating habits helped him know what to consume during his challenge journey and admitted to asking her for advice when he needed it. “I want to give her full credit for my diet, first off, because she already ate healthy and I was always like, ‘Give me all the kids’ food, I’ll eat the leftovers’,” Cole told us in the interview, which can be seen above.
“She already had that under control,” he continued. “I’d follow her and ask her for advice on like, you know, ‘Should I eat this? What should I eat? What’s healthy?’. Then, also, with all the stuff we had to do everyday, she would either make time for me, watch the kids for a minute, let me finish my workout in the evening or take the kids somewhere so I can do this and that.”

FEELING DANGEROUS! Today is the 75th day of my #75hard #75hardchallenge ! I did it! I honestly feel brand new! Not only have I physically became more fit but my mind and my attitude toward my everyday life has been changed forever. I feel like my refresh button has been hit, both inside and out. When I first heard of this challenge I was all in and started 2 days after reading about it. I knew it would be tough, but I didn’t know it would be as tough and demanding as it actually was! Which made it even more worth it! We don’t achieve great things in life without busting our ass and doing the work. I feel so happy and proud, this has been an amazing ride and something I truly needed. Thank you @andyfrisella for creating such a life changing program. The biggest thanks throughout this journey needs to go to my beautiful wife @chelseahouska and family ! This has been a long road through this challenge and I could not have done it without you! You motivated me, you reminded me on days to check off my list, guided me on my eating, and made sure on the crazy busy days that I was able to complete things I needed too. I continue to be forever grateful for you everyday and I love you! Thank you also to all of you who followed along with my challenge, and if I have been able to shine a light on anyone at all and motivate you to become better for yourself then I am beyond grateful! Those of you who are still grinding it out, keep kicking ass!! You got this and I am still here. This is only the beginning of a new journey, there is no stopping me and nothing will stand in my way, like I said before, I’m….. FEELING DANGEROUS ! #fitness #grateful #blessed #motivation #lifestyle #hardwork #getoutdoors #success #transformation

Cole also talked about how Chelsea would “remind” him to get the daily tasks of the challenge, which included reading 10 pages of a nonfiction book and taking progress photos, done. “She’d remind me, you know, like ‘Hey did you read yet? Did you take a picture yet?’,” he explained before also admitting that he hadn’t “read books since college” so he was “pumped” about that part of the challenge.
Cole and Chelsea, who have been married since 2016, are the busy parents of three children, including Aubree, 10, Watson, 3, and Layne, 1, and are currently expecting their fourth, so doing a 75-day challenge definitely couldn’t have been easy! Cole still managed to get it done and showed off his amazing results on Instagram, which can be seen in the photo above. When asked why he chose to take on such a task at this time in his life, the reality dad revealed he “needed something more challenging” and was motivated after he noticed himself “getting a little bit of a dad bod”.
The “75 Hard Challenge” is based on Andy Frisella‘s book 75 Hard: A Tactical Guide to Winning the War with Yourself, which was released in Apr., and it’s been the challenge of choice for a lot of people who are looking to transform their bodies and minds. When completing the challenge, Cole wrote that he felt “brand new” in the caption for his impressive final day post. “Not only have I physically became more fit but my mind and my attitude toward my everyday life has been changed forever,” he revealed. “I feel like my refresh button has been hit, both inside and out.”
