After constantly being knocked back when trying to get a date, Mos Sataporn had no doubt given up hope of ever finding love. However, that’s when he decided to make a dramatic change in his life. And the result of his efforts meant he lost almost half of his body weight.
Mos Sataporn lives in the city of Bangkok in Thailand. Like many young men his age, he was interested in dating and was actively looking for romance. For Sataporn, though, the path to true love was not going to run smooth.
In fact, in his doomed quest to find the one, Sataporn struggled to even secure a date. Then, to make matters worse, he found himself the victim of a painful rejection. Tired of being alone, Sataporn resolved to make some major adjustments to his lifestyle.
At the time, Sataporn was more than six foot tall and weighed a colossal 341 pounds. However, these figures meant that he had a dangerously high BMI. As a result, some medical experts would consider him to be obese.
Growing up, food was always a large part of Sataporn’s life. In 2017 he recalled how, during his kindergarten years, his nanny would go out at night to pick him up any treats he fancied. Two particular favorites at the time, he said, were grilled pork neck and Tokyo dessert sausage.
As the years passed, Sataporn’s diet grew even more unhealthy. Eventually, he was consuming 20 porks chops and two fried chicken wraps every day. Additionally, in any 24-hour period, he would also wolf down large quantities of rice.
Clearly, it wasn’t going to be easy for Sataporn to overhaul his terrible eating habits. However, he was serious about changing his life. So, he decided to ditch the carb-heavy junk food that he had come to love so much.
Sataporn traded his high-calorie diet for lean proteins like chicken, which he paired with healthy sides such as brown rice or vegetables. Furthermore, instead of washing his food down with soda, he drank lots of hydrating water.
Moreover, to help him achieve his dream of losing weight, Sataporn would have to stop relying on convenience food and learn to cook for himself. So, he devised a simple meal plan that would help him shed the pounds.
Sataporn’s new regime saw him start his day with a coffee before going out for a run. On his return, he would refuel with a healthy breakfast of egg whites, plus a serving of brown rice. After that, his approach was to eat little but often.
As a result, three times a day at regular intervals, Sataporn would enjoy a small portion of chicken breast with brown rice or some cabbage. Then, for his evening meal, he usually ate fish with a side of vegetables.
Since every calorie counted in Sataporn’s search for a sleek physique, he chose not to cook with oil. He also omitted sugar from his diet and greatly reduced his salt intake. It seemed that Sataporn was willing to make great sacrifices to become the person he really wanted to be.
Sataporn combined his new meal plan with regular exercise sessions. And as a result of his new healthy regimen, it wasn’t long before he started to notice a big change in his body. In fact, within the first month of his diet he’d manage to shed an impressive 11 pounds.
However, Sataporn had no plans to slow down. Instead, he continued with his strict lifestyle and regularly kept his friends and family updated with his progress on Facebook. Before their very eyes, Sataporn was transforming into a completely different person.
Throughout his weight-loss journey, Sataporn was keen to stress that he’d reached every milestone without any helping hands. To this end, he avoided taking any kinds of drugs or supplements. Instead, he kept things simple by controlling portion sizes, choosing healthy food, and stocking up on sleep and water.
Through this tried-and-trusted method, Sataporn lost nearly half his body weight in just one year. Astonishingly, in the first 12 months of his journey, he lost 165 pounds and reduced his weight to a more manageable 176 pounds.
Meanwhile, an added bonus of his impressive weight-loss was the extra confidence that Sataporn gained. And with his newfound self-believe, he should have no problem selling himself to potential dates in the future.
It’s fair to say that Sataporn has come a long way, both in body and in mind. Understandably, he was very proud of everything he’d achieved during his journey. As a result, he decided to share his inspiring tale with his 15,000 followers on Facebook.
And it didn’t take long for Sataporn’s stirring story to go viral. Since he posted the update in May 2017, more than 57,000 people have reacted to it. Furthermore, nearly 34,000 people have shared it on.
And Sataporn now hopes that his story might encourage others to make a similar change. “If you want to diet,” he says, “the first thing you have to do is to fight with your inner self. If others can do it, why not you?”
