Mies laihtui silmissä – paino putosi 42 kiloa alle puolessa vuodessa

Fitness Lifestyle · Terhi Piiroinen

Kun amerikkalaisella Jeremiah Petersonilla oli 45 kiloa ylipainoa, päätti hän ottaa itseään niskasta kiinni ja muuttaa elämäntavat kertaheitolla. Nelikymppinen mies ryhtyi ketogeeniselle dieetille ja onnistui laihduttamaan huikeat 42 kiloa viiden kuukauden aikana.

Aiemmin aktiivista elämää elänyt perheenisä Jeremiah Peterson jätti rakkaat ulkoilmaharrastukset yritystoimintaansa laajentaessaan. Vuosien mittaan hän huomasi kerryttäneensä elopainoaan yli 130 kilogrammaan. Samalla hän tajusi, ettei enää pystynyt vaeltamaan 10- ja 8-vuotiaiden lastensa kanssa.

Perheen kanssa tehty retki palautti hänet maan pinnalle, kun aiemmin aktiivinen mies huomasi hengästyvänsä jo pienestä matkasta. Samalla hän näki, että pienet lapset jaksoivat jatkaa reippailua edelleen, vaikka hän isänä tunsi kipua rinnassaan. Hän muokkasi ruokavalionsa ja liikuntatottumukset kokonaan uusiksi.

Peterson aloitti ketogeenisen dieetin, jossa on tarkoituksena karsia hiilihydraatit minimiin ja tyydyttää ravinnonsaanti pääasiassa rasvalla ja proteiinilla. Muutokset alkoivat välittömästi. Hän lisäsi päiväohjelmaansa 40 minuutin patikoimisen ja kävi kuntosalilla 5-6 kertaa viikossa. Nyt hän toimii inspiraationa kaikille samassa tilanteessa oleville oman Instagram-kanavansa kautta, Men’s Health uutisoi.

I will put the LINK to the ARTICLE in my BIO so you can check it out!!! ・・・ In 2017, @jeremiahpetersonmontana weighed 290 pounds at 40 years old, and he realized he couldn’t hike with his two young kids anymore. "I had a kind of 'aha' moment," he says. "I thought about what my life was at that very moment, and saw what I wanted my life to be." So he got to work. He took on the keto diet, cut out all alcohol, and finally began to exercise again. He ended up losing a whopping 92 pounds in just five months — and won $50K because of it.

FOUR DAYS UNTIL I TURN 40! . I have to say I’ve gone through some huge changes this past year. But just wait until you see what I do this year!!! . REMEMBER IN THE END, WE ONLY REGRET THE CHANCES WE DID'NT TAKE. . Have you ever had a thought go through your mind such as, “I wish I did that,” or, “I could have done that,” or even worse, “I regret not doing that.” . These are thoughts that we should try to limit as much as possible. Instead, we should be saying, “I am so glad I did that,” or, “This changed my life,” or even, “Best decision I have ever made.” . Life is about taking chances, and going out of your comfort zone. . The old saying, “You’ll never know unless you try it,” applies. You never know if you can do something unless you put yourself out there. The worst thing someone can tell you is no, but you will never know the answer unless you try first. . I have always been an person who wants to get the most of out of life. . Do not be afraid to take a chance. One decision may change your life forever, but you will never know if you do not try. . . ——————————————— .#weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightloss #transformationtuesday #100to0 #arete #noregrets #change #bodytransformation #keto #transformation #changeyourlife #100to0 #takingchances #life #onelife #win #wintheday #neverquit #neversettle #ketogenic #ketodiet #keepdreaming #ketogenicdiet #nevergiveup #keepfighting #conquer #missoula #montana

. 15 DAYS UNTIL I WILL BE 40 YEARS OLD. . When I was younger I was always the guy that could maintain that perfect body with lifting during the week and then having a huge cheat meal and drinks on the weekends. . As I poured myself more and more into running and building my business I started to slack on my workouts. . I found myself needing a beer at night to relax and unwind. Before long it was 2 beers or more.. Now I'm not saying I had a drinking problem. . But I will say that those empty calories stick to my 39 year old body in ways that my 30 year old body never had to deal with. . Lol…then don't get me started on the treats that linger around a house when you have three kids. . The combination of alcohol and sugar are the worst for gaining weight and basically succumbing to the stereotypical Dad bod. . I know now that because I have some huge goals for myself and my family that sugar and alcohol truly have to be a very occasional treat. . Because after all this transformation has turned into something far bigger than just weight loss or mere aesthetics. My mindset for success has never been so strong. . Watching myself and how much my physical body manifests into drive for my business, my family and the goals I have… . I know I won't let a short term moment of indulgence interfere with my long term plans for success. . #win #weightlosstransformation #transformforlife #bestself #dothework #weightloss #arete #100to0 #fattofit #fattofitjourney #fat2fit #weightlossjourney #neversettle #nevergiveup #keto #ketodiet #ketogenicdiet #ketogenic #missoula #montana #youcandoit #iam1stphorm #1stphorm
