Start off with: Hi everyone my name is Karl, I'm 27 years old. I'm 5'7.5 and i was 37% body fat at 238 lbs.. I was pretty skinny till about 17 i would say.. When i got my licenses i was always getting fast food.. one point in my life i was drinking a lot 19-22... then long term gf break up got depressed.. When i met the girl that I'm with now who is my wife. I was 200lbs when i met her.. 4 years in i got up to 240..

Started getting real shaky all the time. Got asthma and back problems.. Finally i went to the doctor and got some blood tests done.. Not good at all. most levels were in the danger zone and my doctor told me i was heading to a heart attach by the time i was in my 30's. That was a huge wake up call.

My son was born 9-10-11 and I made him a promise to get into shape and be healthy. So when 1-1-12 rolled i made a New Years Resolution. I quite cold turkey on all the fast food i ate and soda i drank. I had a friend who was a personal trainer and he took me on. I trained with him for 3 months. Took in all the info i possible could. Then i went on my own.

5 months after the training had begun, i went back to the doctor and had the blood test again. Results were amazing. My doctor couldn't believe the change in my levels. Everything was perfect spot on.

It's now been a 1yr and 2 months and I'm still at it. It's now become a lifestyle for me. I want my boy growing up to a healthy active dad. He was my inspiration to all of this. I'm 17.1% body fat now.

Hey man,

Could you give us more info on what you did? Did you start off easy or did you go balls to the wall in cardio? What did your diet look like early on and did you go drastic with that too? etc..

The more details you can provide, the more "awesome'er" that would be. :)

As for my diet, I stick to a high protein low carb diet. My ratio is 40% protein 35% fat 25% carbs. I eat around 2000 calories a day. I typically track all my calories with ifitnesspal and I weigh my food out. lately I haven't been doing to much cardio because iv bee powerlifting.

When I first started out my transformation I quit cold turkey on everything. Fast food, soda, junk food, candy etc... I was lifting 3x a week and cardio 4x a week

Here are some up dated pictures. I also started a motivational page on facebook to help out others with their weight loss. I have lots of info on it. Come like and info all the great info I have to offer. www.facebook.com/domination.inspiration
