We all know at least someone who has lost a decent amount of weight and we congratulate them for it, but would you believe that there is a guy out there in the USA who managed to lose 425 Pounds and in just two years?
It’s not hard to understand how it all went wrong: consuming Pizza, take out of just about every kind, the soft drinks with loads of sugar, the Ice-Cream and chocolate bars. The part that you might not yet know if how it all started going right.
Many people these days are getting surgery to lose weight — I know two people. There is nothing wrong with going in that direction. The surgeon will let you know that you have about the same chance of drying on the operating table as you do of giving birth to a child with down syndrome. For those who are wondering, that means a roughly 1 in 400 chance. I remember this because we discussed how that number when you see it on paper actually sounds like quite a high chance but then when you think about 400 people you start to realize that is it probably pretty unlikely.
Anyway, according to the reports on this man, he didn’t have any surgery which makes it all the more difficult. Having surgery isn’t an easy way out like many believe. It comes with it’s own downsides which include feeling really sick after you eat anything and having to adjust mentally to only eating a fraction of what you would normally eat. Still, there is no blood sweat and tears involved like there is with the excise involved with losing 425 pounds all by yourself through nothing but gym work.
Anyone who says they lost all of their weight through just gym is lying. Just like anyone who says they lost all their weight through eating right is lying. It takes a combination of the two to lose a great deal of weight. Sure, you can lose some weight doing either of the two, but not hundreds of pounds like this man.
