• Due to years of unhealthy eating habits, Nicholas Davies's weight rose to nearly 320 pounds.
• After undergoing cardio and regular personal training sessions, he completed a weight loss adjustment of more than 100 pounds.
• Davies now trains up to 8 hours a week in the gym and has reduced his body fat to 15 percent.
On his 45th birthday, Nicholas Davies realized he needed to control his weight. "Someone filmed me making a map, and I just looked like a pig," says Davis, a 49-year-old chief technology officer in London. "I hated what I looked like and there was a wave of self-hatred that flooded me like a tsunami." "The clothes would not suit me and everything I wore looked more like a tent than a T-shirt," he says.
Thanks to his grandparents as restaurateurs, he always tended to overeat. But it was not just readily available food that made him over-indulge ̵
And his greatness made him shy away from sociability; It's easy to feel confident when you're too tall to fit in a rollercoaster, for example. When he retreated from the people, he turned in a vicious circle even more to the food.
He decided to change. His attitude had always been the biggest obstacle. As miserable as he was, he had stopped taking action, perhaps because it seemed too difficult to start. "But in the end, I had to say that yesterday never came," he says, "tomorrow will never come, but what's more important is what I do today."
So he started small. He switched to a low carbohydrate diet and only ate two meals a day. He began to lose weight quickly and introduced 30 minutes of cardio a day. He tried CrossFit, but found it "macho", with a lot of unnecessary groans and grunts. Instead, he turned to gymnastics, appreciating the agility, flexibility, and timing required to land even some of the simplest movies. "Pretty cool at any age," he says, "but learning at 45 and never having done that in your life makes it even cooler."
