Seeing transformations like this always inspires me. Oftentimes, we fall out of love with the gym and eating right and, in turn, our bodies suddenly start to look less like a pile of muscle and more like a pile of shit. “I’ve been busy with work and life’s crazy, too” we say. We give all the excuses we can, except for the truth, which is that we’ve become lazy. That’s usually all there is to it. Of course there are extreme cases, but for 99% of us, if we look like a fucking doughboy, it’s our fault.
The man above, Dan Davidson, fell into a similar lifestyle. He was eating 6,000 calories per day and drinking a bottle of vodka every weekend. That’s great if you’re working out like Michael Phelps, but not if you’re the poster boy for a sedentary lifestyle.
One day, in the not so distant past, Dan woke up and realized he needed to make a change. So he hit the gym and followed the diet below. When he reached his goal, he hired a photographer to take a few David Beckham-like photos. There’s one below for the sake of seeing his transformation and more for your viewing pleasure over at the Daily Mail.
