When he first started in August 2016, he cut all processed carbohydrates and ate about 1,700 calories a day, which he tracked with a weight-loss app. The first 40 pounds just "melted off."

"When you have a history of binge eating and emotional eating you lose all faith in your ability to control your emotions and hunger," he said. "I had no idea I was as mentally strong as I actually am."

When he hit a plateau, he made some changes to his diet. He focused on eating chicken, turkey, legumes, vegetables, black coffee, tea, non-fat Greek yogurt, fruit and raw nuts. This change helped him shed even more weight. But again, his progress stalled at 225 pounds.

"It is just about how I feel and how I look in the mirror and not a number on the scale," he said.

Gendreau, now a primary care doctor, shares tips on what helped him succeed.

1. Keep fat pants and pictures.

When Gendreau is stressed he might try on his XXXL T-shirts and size 44 pants. It is a tangible reminder of how far he's come and makes him "feel like a million bucks" that he now wears smalls and a size 31.

"Sometimes you need a side-by-side to see what you accomplished,' he said.

2. Find your reason.

Gendreau's reason to lose weight was rooted in sadness — his sister was dying and he need to be around a long time for her children. But he believes that helped him when losing became tough.

"I knew that I had to be healthy," he said. "That was probably the primary motivator."

3. 'Spoil your appetite.'

Even though Gendreau focuses on a healthy eating, he still enjoys going out to meals with friends and family. When he's not having a cheat day, he chooses salad or baked chicken breast. He never overeats thanks to one trick.

"I will purposefully spoil my appetite. I will eat a pile of raw nuts, a pile of carrots and an apple on the way. That way I am really not that hungry so all I want is a drink and a salad," he explained.
