Alvar lost 27 pounds by eating slower - here’s his before and after weight loss photo.
Contrary to popular belief, the gym is not the main solution to weight loss.
This is what Alvar found out during his transformation: chew more and eat slower.
Research has found that slower eating can save you up to hundreds of calories per day. It might not seem like much, but it adds up fast. For Alvar, that tip—in addition to weight lifting, obviously, —resulted in 27 pounds lost.
The before (on the right here, instead of left) was on April 20, 2013 and the after (on left) was on July 12, 2013. So 20 pound weight loss in slightly less than 3 months. 19 years old. 5’10 1/2, trying to lose weight “since forever.” Lots of exercise, water and tons of fruits and veggies.

I am 20 years old. My starting weight was 200lbs at 5’9! Crazy and embarrassing but I decided that I seriously needed to change. I have struggled with my weight my entire life and I feel like I have always been on a “diet” and it has never worked. But just a little over a month now I have taken things seriously and said enough was enough. It was time to change for good. I am already down to 185! I am so proud of myself and it only gives me the motivation to keep going:)
My goal is to be at 140 as of right now:)
Please follow me. I would love to share tips and also get advice from others. :):)
About 18-20 pounds lost in just my 3-4 month summer away from college! I’m really proud of myself. I gained a ton of weight in college through bad diet and habits so I decided to make a change and begin my weight loss as soon as summer began. This change included healthy eating and lots of exercise. I want to start the next school year with a bang!

I HAVE FINALLY LOST 25 LBS! (My goal is 165, so 11.8 lbs more to go!) (And then I have goal #2 which is 155) (And then I’m sure I’ll have another goal….)
On the left I am 200.8 lbs (April 22 2013) on the right I am 176.8 lbs. (August 16 2013) I feel like this journey has been so long but it’s really only been 3.5 months, I wish it would all happen so much faster but the healthy way doesn’t go fast and I know that. My exercise is mainly jogging (3.2 miles) 5/6 times a week. And if I’m not jogging I’ll do cycling or stairmaster. I really hate working out indoors aka why I don’t like the gym aka why I jog outside. My meals mainly consist of vegetables, fruits, some lean protein, and some whole wheats. Lots and lots of water and occasionally some diet sodas (Omg yeah, I said it!)

My journey began Jan. 14, 2013 and I’m still goin’! There’s about a 90 lb difference between the first and second photo. Through a clean lifestyle, vegan diet, and exercising 7 days a week, I have achieved the highest level of fitness I’ve ever experienced - most of which I accomplished as a full time student. I believe I have gotten this far this time, versus the countless attempts prior, because I am scale-free and wasn’t focused on a number, but the quality of my mental state and livelihood!
Fantastic transformation! Thanks so much for sharing.
Sorry I dont have a before photo of me, but I wont be the first fat person to not have photos of him taken. I am currently selling my old clothes on eBay, and was asked to measure up a set of shirts. The blue one is what I wore when I was at my largest (22 stone) and the white one is what I wear now 16 months later (13 stone).
I am 5 foot 8 inches, and I lost the weight by “eating less and doing more” cutting down on portion sizes, doing more generally, and when I noticed my weight loss, I started to get out on my old bike, which I am on alot more now.
I dont know how to use tumblr yet, I think I’m too old! Okay, Hi. Here are my face progress photos. Before 9/2011 - 3 months exactly post partum.
212 lbs the day I gave birth.
Lost some from labor, gained a ton of fat back from a poor diet. I was living on crumb cake and pepsi as a quick caffeine and carb-for-energy fix the first few months my daughter was born. I was alone all day with her and I was the only one getting up with her at night because her father worked. It was beyond exhausting having no help, and it was wrong of him to put me through that, and wrong of me to allow myself to be “too capable” and not accept the help when it was offered to me. So, I packed on the fat. Before pregnancy, I would maintain my weight effortlessly because I was such an active dancer. 145-155 was a GOOD weight for me- I was comfortable and happy! I just want to get back to that. My old clothes, my old comfortable body, feeling good and confident again.
The scale isn’t changing much but I know my body is. I last weighed myself at 206lbs and I know a lot of that is now muscle. Its been 12 weeks and I plan on taking full body after photos soon.
I gave up pepsi in april, as well as fast food, fried food, and most candy. I have a 2 year old so I believe in dessert! I’ve been eating so much better, drinking my water, and trying hard without having it take over my life. I cant wait to have the progress that Ive seen so many of you bravely share!
