The stigma that only women take care of their bodies, worrying about those few extra pounds, should really come to an end. When it comes to appearance, men are just as willing to hit the gym and do whatever it takes to keep in shape.
Here, let me give you some proof:
1. Great results within 4 months
This guy over here attributed his weight gain to his unhealthy drinking habits. Moreover, he said that he didn’t really care if his health would go downhill or not. However, there came a day when he realized that there is something he needed to do about his physique. In just four months, he managed to drop 40 pounds.
2. He lost 59 lb.
This is the story of Sam Rouen. When he was 19, he weighed 339 pounds. However, 10 years ago, he became part of the Australian version of The Biggest Loser where he shed 156 pounds and actually won! After that, his life turned around where he became one of the hottest firefighters of Australia.

7. He lost 70 pounds.
Losing weight is a commitment that takes courage and patience. And since this young man managed to achieve his goals, he decided to share a little something with the other folk who are about to embark on a journey like his.
I didn’t really realize it at the time but I was depressed, bored, apathetic, etc. I had tried anti-depressants and while they worked a bit to get me up and at it, I stopped them after 2-3 months. I’m hoping this post and my COOL DUDE shirt fills you with determination.
