Health & Fit How This Guy Lost 100 Pounds Without Setting Foot in a Gym
Woman loses 100 pounds in 1 year, thanks to keto diet and intermittent fasting
After seeing a candid picture of herself at her highest weight, Jenny Wagner knew she had to do something to become healthier.
A bad breakup forced Robert Sean Grady Jr. to reflect on himself, and realize that if he was going to find happiness in love, he needed some important self-improvement. The 28-year-old medical record software specialist from Wilkes Barre-Scranton, Pennsylvania, had put a lot into the relationship, but when it soured he decided to work on himself. He also wanted to improve his hockey stamina.
Grady remembers always being the chubby kid, thanks in part to poor diet. Through high school he was overweight, the target of teasing from other students. After graduating, he dropped 30 pounds, bringing him down to 240. He got a girlfriend, but feeling miserable in the relationship, he turned to food as an escape from his unhappiness. “My early and mid-20's weren't my best times, unfortunately,” he says, and by 24 he weighed 340 pounds.
Weight-Loss Tips That Work From a Viewer Who Lost 250 Pounds
Annamarie is now down to a size 6. And she's sharing her top three tips for weight loss.
“I don't think I really understood just how big I was,” he says. He was still playing hockey and golfing with friends, not fully acknowledging his size. “I knew I was overweight, but I didn't take it seriously.
Then came the Christmas breakup. Grady had already stopped drinking soda. “Why drink your calories when you can eat something delicious?” he says. He was about 290 pounds and ready to slim down. He downloaded MyFitnessPal to calculate his daily calorie intake (about 1900, but he’d hit 200-300 less), aiming to lose 2 pounds a week. He tossed out all the sweets and junk food in his house—literally throwing it away.
'After I Started Using A Meal-Planning App, I Lost 100 Pounds In Just Two Years'
During high school and college, I was an active person. But when I graduated, I began to gain weight because I lost control of my habits.
Revamping his diet was the biggest focus. He drinks mostly coffee and water now. His breakfast might be a Clif bar and coffee, or a ham, egg, and Swiss sandwich on wheat toast. Lunch is a turkey or ham sandwich with a cup of berries. His dinners vary; he tries to leave room for extra calories, and quesadillas have become his go-to meal. He developed a taste for spinach and mushrooms, both filling and high in fiber. He also praises slow-cooking, including health chili recipes, for helping him meal plan.
Simply cutting calories had him dropping weight quickly. He went from 290 down to 230 in about ten months. (Earlier, over the course of three years, he’d cut from 340 to 290, for a total of 110 pounds lost over four years.) There were some ups and downs, but you can’t argue with the results.

Now, Brandt Westberg’s headaches and backaches are gone, and he’s able to play on the floor with his 4-year-old daughter.
“And to be honest,” he says, “I still haven't taken a step in a gym.” He plays hockey two or three times a week, takes half-hour walks on his lunch break, and walks trails near his house after work. Most of his progress, though, he owes to a revamped diet.
He’s still getting used to his new size. “I still feel inside like the fat guy I always was,” he says. It helps to realize he can fit into 36-inch waist jeans, down from 44 at his largest. “I feel incredible physically,” he says. “It's just the mental and emotional part that people don't take into account, and I'm trying to give myself more credit than I have.”
With his newfound confidence he’s met a great new partner, Barbara, who he credits as making his whole transformation worth it. He’s still aiming to get under 200 pounds, where he hasn’t been since early high school, and start using weights to tighten up his body. “Self improvement,” he says, “is never finished.”

Fired to 400,000 copies, "The girl and the night", is the first novel of the writer published at Calmann Levy. In 2nd place of the ranking is his previous novel, "An apartment in Paris" which has just been published in Pocket Pocket with a print run of 600,000 copies.
"The girl and the night" it could be "Twin Peaks in the country of Pagnol", had recently confided to AFP Guillaume Musso presenting his new thriller, the first taking place entirely on the Côte d'Azur.
Guillaume Musso is part of the very exclusive club of best-selling French-language authors with more than 28 million books sold around the world. His novels have been translated into 40 languages. For seven years, the writer, adulated in South Korea, star in Germany and Italy, is the French author who sells the most books.
His new novel is a challenge for a thriller since from the first pages, Guillaume Musso gives us the name of the murderer. This is the narrator, Thomas, a successful novelist born in Antibes.
In December 1992, 18-year-old Thomas, a high school student (resembling furiously the international high school of Antibes where Musso was a teacher), murdered Alexis, a teacher of philosophy suspected of being the lover of the young Vinca, a classmate of Thomas of whom he was secretly in love.
Alexis' body was immured in the high school gym. Vinca has mysteriously disappeared. The police investigation gave nothing.
25 years later, in May 2017, Thomas returns to Antibes as we celebrate 50 years of high school. The gym must be shaved. We will certainly find the body which is immured there. The life of Thomas and his friend Maxime (who helped him get rid of the corpse) will sink. The nightmare seems to have already begun when Thomas finds the word "Vengeance" written to his attention ...
To write his novel, one of his most mastered, the writer explained to AFP to have been inspired by "Campus Novels ", a literary genre popularized by the British David Lodge or the American Michael Chabon.
