Check Out This Inspirational Bro Who Lost Over 300 Pounds (And Is Now Ripped) Using His Special ‘Walmart Plan’
Sometimes in life you make one simple change and it has a ripple effect that transforms your entire world. That’s what happened with Pasquale “Pat” Brocco, 31, three years ago when his doctor warned him that his weighing 605 pounds was going to kill him sooner rather than later.
Following that doctor’s appointment, Brocco, who used to be a bodyguard for many A-List celebrities like Kanye West, Katt Williams, and Nicki Minaj, took a photo of himself in a mirror and didn’t like what he saw.
“My fitness journey started when Katt Williams gave a bet to do 50 push ups. I dropped down on the ground to start my first one and I couldn’t even lift myself up. Not only was I embarrassed but I humiliated, I’m suppose to be protecting this person and I can’t even lift myself off the ground. I never looked back ever since. I left the body guard life and creating a new one,” he wrote on Instagram.

TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY🔥 – My name is Pasquale Brocco and I use to weigh 605 pounds. I use to be a bodyguard for many A-List celebrities like Kanye west, Katt Williams, Nicki Minaj, etc. My life was based around touring around states and countries protecting these people, partying, drinking and doing things I’m not proud of. – My fitness journey started when Katt Williams gave a bet to do 50 push ups. I dropped down on the ground to start my first one and I couldn’t even lift myself up. Not only was I embarrassed but I humiliated, I’m suppose to be protecting this person and I can’t even lift myself off the ground. I never looked back ever since. I left the body guard life and creating a new one. – 5 Plus years later I’ve never been more happier in my life. Not only have I changed my life dramatically but I save myself from dying. I was on my death bed too young to die. I’m 300 pounds standing 6’8 and I love every inch and scare on my body, from losing half my body weight, getting loose skin removal surgery, to helping thousands of other people change their life on step at a time. – My name is Pasquale Brocco and I’m living Proof that you can do it too ❤️ TAG A FRIEND
It was after taking that photo following the doctor’s warning that the Avondale, Arizona man known his whole life as “Fat Pat” decided that from then on, every time he was hungry, rather than eat, he would take a walk to his local Walmart and back.
“You walk to Walmart three times a day, and you end up walking 6 miles,” Brocco told ABC News. “It’s amazing because I never walked 6 miles in my life, and I was doing it every day.”
From there he moved up to walks on a treadmill at a gym. Then lifting weights. Then using gym equipment that he wouldn’t have dreamed of even trying to use before.
“I mean, at 600 pounds, I couldn’t even go to the gym,” Brocco recalled. “I didn’t fit on the machines.”

To succeed the process must become a rhythm! Rhythm is something done repetitive, so the process must be repetitive! We have to be consistent and let it become in our nature!

330 pounds later, Brocco now lives on a healthy diet made up of food like vegetables, meats, sweet potatoes, quinoa and steel-cut oatmeal.
“Once I figured out dairy was my downfall, I took it out of my diet, and instantly I started losing weight again,” he explained.
“Fat Pat” is now “Possible Pat” and hopes that he will now be a role model for his one-year-old son, “so he can be Possible Pat, too.”
