Man drops 42 pounds and gets ripped in just 12 weeks

NORMAN, Oklahoma — When an Oklahoma man hit his all-time high weight of 202 pounds back in January, he decided he needed to do something about it.

Hunter Hobbs vowed to take his diet and exercise serious for 12 weeks.

He snapped a picture each day and posted a time-lapse video of his incredible transformation to his Facebook page. It’s been viewed more than 300,000 times.

Hobbs said he never expected so many people to be interested in his transformation. So he posted a follow-up video answering many of the questions people had about his workout and diet.

He said he used a bunch of different resources.

“You don’t have to pay for anything. There’s so many online, free programs,” he said.

As for his workout, he said he went to the gym five to six times per week and focused on weight training. But he said he finished each workout with 20 – 30 minutes of cardio.

Hobbs said his diet was “boring” and consisted mostly of chicken, sweet potatoes, almonds, eggs, oatmeal, and protein shakes. He also said he avoided alcohol.

Hobbs admits he was in shape until he graduated from college, but he said he got a desk job and fell into some bad habits.

He said it probably was easier for him to do than for somebody who never stepped foot in a gym.

“It was still the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” he said.
