A 28-year-old man from the UK, Sebastian David, went from big and bloated to bodybuilder in just a matter of months after letting go of his terrible daily food choices.
David was spending £140 per week on junk food and eating out. He was given the nickname of Keith Lard, after the Phoenix Nights character, because he was consuming 5,000 calories a day in sweets and buckets of KFC chicken.
After David’s father passes away, he decided to put himself on a strict fitness and diet plan and went from 202 pounds to 147 pounds in a matter of months. His new 3,300 calorie diet included oats, eggs and blueberries for breakfast, chicken, sweet potato and broccoli for lunch and salmon and white potatoes for dinner. He also cut out the junk food snacks for healthier options such as protein shakes, cottage cheese and nuts.
He quickly became ripped from the work he was putting in at the gym and the changes he made in his diet. This led David to a change in his career. He is competing in local bodybuilding competitions and came in 7th place in a nationwide competition only 15 months after picking up weights for the first time!
Not only that – he is now desperately wanted as a male model. This still comes as a shock to David, although he knows his weight loss has drastically changed his life for the better.
“I didn’t set out to compete in bodybuilding or do modelling, I just set out to get my body in shape and feel better but once I got going I kept reassessing my goals. I feel amazing now. I’m just happy to be happy and it’s great being able to feel good about myself.”
David originally lost control of his weight when his dad was diagnosed with the muscle wasting illness motor neurone disease, but when his dad passed, it triggered him to get his health and weight together.
Now David is targeting a top-three finish at his second bodybuilding event in Belfast and soon he will be launching his new fitness website.
Wow, what a transformation! WAY TO GO SEBASTIAN!
