Sharing his pictures to Reddit, poster ‘Chinchomps’ revealed he was 23 and 5’9”.
Over the course of one year and nine months, he lost an impressive nine stone two pounds.
Explaining how he achieved his weight loss, he wrote: “Well it’s been an interesting year. After I hit 200 a month or two after my last post I was so sick of counting calories and restricting that I stopped completely for probably half a year.
“Maintained 200-210 and I was content. Then I was no longer happy and knew I could do better, so I tried and tried for a few months to get back into the swing of things. Eventually I was able to, but it sucked.
“170 was my second goal weight and I finally hit that today. I’m like 2-3 lbs from being a normal BMI.
“I can wear large shirts. Minds finally accepted my weight loss. Starting a job in a few days, life seems okay now.
“150 is my next goal, and I’ll try to knock out 10 of that by the end of the year so I can focus on maintaining for 2018 and get off this wild ride.”
His post has had over 2000 views in 24 hours, and many wanted to know how he managed to lose so much weight.
One commenter asked him: “Keep up the good work! Do you lift or exercise or just purely calorie restriction?”
He responded: “Appreciate the kind words, and all I’ve done is calorie restriction.”
Another commoner recommended he took up weight lifting to “fill out your new body in a positive way”.
Explaining that he had tried this in the past, Chinchomps said: “I did it with a friend for maybe 30 hours total, it was enjoyable but things like going over to his house daily made me feel like a burden so it kind of just fell out.
“Maybe when I get a little money saved up I’ll look into building/buying a power rack and picking up some weights.”
Getting rid of belly fat is not easy, and another man shared his tips to social media earlier this month.
Sharing a before and after image to Imgur, the man revealed how he tweaked his diet to achieve his goals.
Explaining his diet, he said: “Flexible dieting is a method of eating that involves quantifying the food we eat in order to produce a favourable body composition.”
