Ben Pobjoy claimed that he was only slightly chubby as a child. Apparently, he remained fairly lean as he entered his teenage years too, and he was a long-distance athlete in high school. However, that all changed when he was in his early 20s at university. Yes, Pobjoy became unhappy and began to comfort-eat.
After graduating, Pobjoy started a job that involved him sitting at a desk all day. This, combined with his bad eating habits, meant that the pounds kept piling on.
By his own admission, Pobjoy was overeating and had totally given up on trying to exercise. He was “in a real slump,” as he later described it. Then, in 2014, Pobjoy moved to Toronto to start a new job. Would this offer him the jolt he needed to make a change?
