    This is genially inspiring. It`s not some high production video with a montage of people working up, with inspirational music playing in the background. It`s just one man giving an honest effort, and showing that he really cares. I feel motivated now.

    You have obviously never seen almost every movie Ben Stiller has been in... he was a trainer in Heavyweights, Dodgeball, and basically Zoolander haha.

    As a fitness expert myself... anyone, and I mean anyone that does not have a severe medical condition like a thyroid problem can look like model in six months. The sad thing is, all the free information is right here online and it gets ignored.

    What this guy is going to do is mostly pointless. Those who have not been overweight for a long time have a much easier time losing it. Yo-yo dieting can also strengthen the fat cells and make it harder to lose, this guy has gone through non of that. Put on top of that that this guy is used to his exercise regimen, it isn`t going to be a useful reflection of how hard it would be for someone who has always been overweight.

    It is true that the principles of weight loss he is talking about do work, but it can often set up the overweight for failure. Rarely is someone successful going 0 to 60 in terms of habits. More often success comes from gradually changing eating and exercise habits.

    BTW, what this guy is doing is not new. You will find physically fit people who agree to pack on the pounds for a "before" picture and then quickly returning to their fit form for the "after" picture.

    @splurbyburbl It`s not that were ignoring it we are just too busy not worrying that we can`t bench 350 pounds when we have forklifts than can lift 2 tons 20 feet in the air. Muscle development to this point is irrelevant to anyone that doesn`t do daily manual labor.

    The muscle mass he has before he started this isn`t going anywhere. It will still there under any cosmetic fat this guy puts on burning calories even when resting far faster than any "morbidly obese" person would.

    Working out like this is just obsessive, narcissistic behavior. Not like his already developed muscle mass wont have anything to do with burning the extra calories in the second 6 months either.

    Thanks for those pics Gerry first one you can see him sucking it in so hard and hes trying to act all nonchalant about it and in the second hes just letting it all hang. Cute that he`s trying so hard.

    @Nottaspy True, but you forgot about taking the extreme buff "after" picture first then they get fat for the "before" picture. Saves a bunch of time for the production. Then afterwards the models can work back to whatever body they want at their own pace.

    @Zymotical: I don`t think you know enough about muscle tissue to be commenting accurately. At least, judging by the serious technical and scientific backed errors you have in your post. But, as stated before... the proof is right here on the internet and you can find it all yourself.

    "HE DOESN`T KNOW HOW IT FEELS!!"

    yeah, that`s why he`s doing it

    "WHY CAN`T HE BE HAPPY WITH WHO I AM?"

    i`m sure he couldn`t care less. the real question is: are you happy with who you are?

    if you don`t need him as an inspiration, then inspire yourself and stop whining

    Is it bad that I want him to get fat and then just give up? Or not be able to get fit again? Not for any real reason about being overweight myself - I am; sure not morbidly, but I don`t really try to keep in shape - but more because his clothing choice, facial hair, and even his job just makes him seem like a douche.

    "@splurbyburbl It`s a real shame. Worst part is when you give people correct info but they think you`re spouting broscience"

    It can be a little frustrating at times, especially when It involves people I actually give a damn about. But mostly I just laugh inwardly everytime someone makes a joke about my physique. I think, "yeah, have fun being flabby and out of shape... I will be over here banging this hot chick." But, outwardly I just laugh along with them because at the end of the day I feel great and look great and drat them...

    Its cool that he`s trying. I just don`t think he`ll ever get the full effect though. A lot of fat people tend to have very poor muscle structure. This guy may be fat-ish, but he was fit at one point, and the work he put into his body is still somewhat under that fat. When he decides to lose it, it will be easier for him than most fat people. Muscles burn more calories than fat (meaning it will leave faster), and exercise is easier when you actually have some muscles to do it with.

    Allow me to dispel some stuff for you Loxin and Zymotical.

    Muscle does burn more calories, but it is at a negligable rate. Look it up. Also, muscle tissue is easier for the body to consume than it is to break down fat cells. The myth that muscle tissue will always be there, is just a myth. If this were not the case, there would be no fat people because everybody has muscle tissue.

    If a fat person were to stop eating, the body would soon attack muscle tissue causing a lot of damage before attacking fat cells. However, if a fat person were to tweak their caloric intake and get a steady fitness routine, the body will become a fat burner instead of a sugar burner, stop storing so much fat, build muscle and burn more calories. It`s beautifully simple.

    Alternate, non-misleading title: "Fit guy decides to gain 60 pounds, then lose it all again, in one year."

    Not morbidly obese. Not 6 months.

    Jesus IAB, is it that hard to find interesting material that you have to lie about it to get views?

    Skaterboy17 - actually, he`s approaching morbidly obese at the moment. A BMI of 35.5 to about 49.9 is morbidly obese - class two obesity (anything more than that is considered `super obese` - class three obesity)

    He started with a BMI of about 24.8, and is currently on 33.8. No, he`s not m. obese at the moment, but he`s fairly close.

    The max I have put on is 12kgs on top of my super fit all muscle ideal weight. I assure you that it is way harder to go from fit - fat - fit, then from fat to some more fat and slow return to fit. It will interesting to see how fast he gets comfortable with the dozen doughnuts meal. Not very long.
    It`s a bloody hard slog to take it off in equal amount of time of the gain. I will be watching.
