This dad lost almost a third of his bodyweight as part of a stunning transformation.Jeremiah Peterson, 40, shed 42kg in just 150 days after he found he was struggling to find the energy to keep up with his children.
“I looked myself in the mirror and thought about my family, my responsibilities and how I would be 40 in less than a year,” he explains on his website, where he credits regular exercise and the keto diet for his weight loss.
“I knew I HAD to make some serious changes in my life. It was like a switch flipped inside of me.”
He first started to gain weight in 2008 after finding it difficult to juggle family life with his first business. At his heaviest, Jeremiah weighed 132kg.
Through exercise and the keto diet – a high-fat, low-carb eating plan – he managed to shift the weight and now boasts an impressive six pack.
Fast-forward to 2019 andJeremiah is known as ‘The Keto Fitness Coach’ with a goal to help others in a similar position change their lives for the better.
Most recently, the US-based father shared a before and after photograph to demonstrate his dramatic weight loss.
He captioned the image [sic], “Life is too short to waste the opportunities right in front of your face right now! Quit wasting opportunities to make your life better!!!”
“If you don’t change the next 5 years of your life will likely be exactly like the last 5 years! YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE!”
