'Teen Mom OG': Ryan's concerned about Bentley's health as Maci asks her son to be on a strict diet
Maci Bookout has always pushed her son, Bentley towards his dreams but it seems like she has doubts if Ryan Edwards is doing the same
Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards seem to be on different pages when it comes to their son, eight-year-old Bentley and his wrestling training. Bentley had always been passionate about wrestling and has been vocal about his dreams. Looking at how serious her son was about wrestling, Maci knew she had to take matters in her hand. She decided to get him a teacher who would be able to guide him better. Maci further hinted that wrestling was a great outlet for Bentley as he had been struggling with Ryan's addiction the previous year, Since then, he has been keeping himself busy and training more.
Maci thought with these private classes, Bentley will soon be able to compete in state championships as he had wanted. However, to achieve that, he had to be on a strict diet and reduce his weight to fit into the category. Maci decided to stick by Bentley's side as he trained. She was quick to give him suggestions about how he can better his skills and Bentley seemed happy to have his mother support him through it all. As the training ended, Bentley expressed his emotions and stated he was hungry. However, since he had to be on a strict diet, Maci told him to be aware of what he was eating.
She further hinted that the only way he would be able to lose weight would be if he trained more and stuck to a low-calorie diet. While Bentley seemed confident that he would achieve his goal, Maci seemed doubtful as she knew he would be heading back to stay with Ryan. She wondered if her son would be able to stick to his diet there. While Bentley seemed certain of what he had to eat to be in shape, Ryan was concerned about him losing weight. His wife, Mackenzie Edwards seemed confused and wondered how one would become stronger if they were losing weight. Bentley tried to explain how it was important for him to shed weight if he wanted to wrestle in the category he wanted.
Ryan was still doubtful and stated that he had always thought wrestling was more about technique. He questioned Bentley why wasn't he gaining weight instead of losing it. He further hinted that it would affect his health as all the diet would stunt his growth and then he would be a late bloomer. While Ryan seemed concerned about how these changes would affect his son, Bentley was confident about what he wanted. However, will this become another cause of trouble between Maci and Ryan?
