A 32-year-old man in Hangzhou recently underwent a dramatic weight loss transformation, dropping 48 kg in just one year, and it’s all thanks to the uninhibited honesty of his 4-year-old daughter.
Sheng Biao is 180 cm tall, but weighed a whopping 123 kg (271 lbs) before finally resolving to slim down, The Paper reported.
Sheng told reporters that when he was in college, he weighed just 90 kg (198 lbs), but his weight quickly ballooned to 100 kg (220 lbs) after he started working, stopped having time to workout, and found the food at the company’s cafeteria very tasty.
He recalled how he had once gobbled up all 14 dishes when dining out with his cousin, leaving waiters shocked by his enormous appetite.
But things began to change after his daughter was born four years ago. He patiently took care of his sweet baby, helping to change her diapers, give her baths and feed her. In the process, Sheng came to realize just how over-weight he really was. For example, he didn’t have enough energy to walk or run with his daughter for long distance, easily becoming out of breath.
The final straw came when his daughter told him that she didn’t want him to come pick her up from kindergarten any more because her friends said that he was a fatty.
Rather than relying on surgery or cement blocks, Sheng’s weight loss plan involved a strict diet and intense exercise, helping him to lose 48 kg (105 lbs) in just a year. This means that his weight is now down to just 75 kg (165 lbs), leaving him skinnier than he was in college.
And it’s all thanks to the unfailing frankness of four year olds.
