Gautam’s journey to cut fat

28/28 90kg > 70kg 20% > 14%

Gautam’s journey is an inspiration to people who have a regular 9 to 5 job and who always have a reason not to be fit. From being someone who used to crave for junk food, he became a person who was obsessive about working out.

Why you decided to Transform?

I was fat as a small child and was always the biggest kid in my class. The funny thing about it was that I never thought being fat was bad. I came from a family of fat people where being fat was a way of life. A typical day of eating then was insane. I felt hungry lie all the time. Ordering double cheeseburgers, two large fries, and a large diet coke was my lifestyle. Work was no different where I would hog on samosas almost every day. I suffered from depression and loneliness. I believed that nobody knew how I felt. I surrounded myself with distractions, television, Internet, video games, and sedentary activities. One fine day I just told myself that this is not how my life is supposed to be. So I decided to change myself.

How did you accomplish your Goal:

At first, all I did was watch what I ate, count calories, and read labels. I began by cutting meat from my diet to teach me self-control and that there was more to life than eating food. I thought I could become a vegetarian and can say that it helped me control portions, but I was never happier than the day I got to eat meat again. When I finally got my eating under control, I started exercising. When I first started, I hated it. It's embarrassing to get on a treadmill weighing what I did, go for 10 minutes, and have to get off. Just 25 minutes of walking was enough to soak the treadmill. It took me a long time to get up the courage to go to the weight area. The sound of clanging metal and grunting scared me. But then my trainer realized that I have a strong will and decided to help me out so developed a plan for me with intensive cardio and strength training routine
