After only a year and 6 months, he had come very close to achieving his desired weight, and shared images of his vast transformation with other Reddit users.
Commenters immediately began asking him what methods he used to lose all the weight, and if he did it without the need for surgery.
He revealed that he completely changed his diet in a significant way: “Eating correctly every three hours, eliminating fried foods and soda, and eating healthy foods.”
He also said that he used the CICO technique to count calories, and said.: “Everything is mathematical, if you overeat, you have to exercise to burn the excess.”
One person wanted to know if he used surgical methods, but he said that he could not actually afford to do so since “surgery is very expensive”.
A transformation this large is typically unusual, but people that achieved a smaller level of weight loss shared their situations online.
One man said that losing belly fat only needs a few certain dietary changes: “Flexible dieting is a method of eating that involves quantifying the food we eat in order to produce a favourable body composition.
He said that he finds out what it is his diet actually needs, or the necessary calorie intake, and “how much of each type of food our body needs (macro-nutrient intake) then using this information to track the food we eat each day.
