When you make the decision to drastically lose weight and become fitter, there are usually a number of things that motivate you to do just that. These factors typically revolve around your need to improve your health and fitness or a desire to feel more comfortable in your own skin.
However, some people will choose to completely transform their bodies purely for the sake of their love lives. Or the lack thereof… Mos Sataporn, from Bangkok in Thailand, is one of these hopeless romantics who strived for a healthier body after he was turned down by his crush. He used to weigh a whopping 342 lbs and was always slated for his weight. In fact, even his own friends would make him the butt of their demeaning jokes. However, it wasn’t until Mos was rejected by a woman that he had feelings for that he realized he couldn’t keep up his destructive lifestyle anymore. This woman rejected him purely because of the way he looked, and so he decided that if this was scaring women off, he had to change. The truth was, it wasn’t just this particular woman who didn’t want to go out with him because he wasn’t taking proper care of his body. He had been rejected many, many times. The women he was attracted to just never felt the same way. And this was mostly due to Mos’ large size. Not only did he weigh 341 lbs, but he is over six feet tall and very physically imposing. To top it all off, his BMI status classified him as “obese”, a fact that was very hard for Mos to take. Mos soon came to the realization that women generally preferred men who were slim and toned. Anyway, after being rejected by yet another woman, he decided to lose weight for the first time. He hoped to attain the body that would attract the girl of his dreams. So how did Mos go about this ambitious weight loss journey? Well, after previously indulging in foods rich in sodium and carbohydrates, he started eating lean meats and other foods rich in protein. He also started eating a lot more vegetables and drinking mostly water. If you’re looking for any additional tips, based entirely on science, take a look at the video below:
Amazingly, Mos also taught himself to cook for the first time and tried to resist using unhealthy ingredients. For the most part, he succeeded. After making drastic changes to his diet, Mos was pretty shocked at how quickly he started shedding the weight. Needless to say, when he started working out, the weight loss only became more rapid. After a month, of healthy eating and intense exercise routines, he managed to lose 11 lbs. Mos is very proud of the progress he has made and often shares his updates on Facebook in order to inspire others. What Mos is most proud of is the fact that he managed to lose the weight entirely on his own. He simply reduced his portion sizes, began to eat healthier foods and exercised regularly. Mos ultimately lost an enviable 165 lbs. Now, at 6 feet tall, he weighs 176 lbs and feels more attractive than ever before. “If you want to diet, the first thing you have to do is to fight with your inner self,” Mos admitted. “If others can do it, why not you?” Of course, we don’t know for certain whether his new look has attracted admirers, but it definitely will sooner or later. And we are totally here for that!
