A 25-year-old male reddit user, 'wontoneggdrop' achieved a remarkable 5-pound weight loss within two months. In this article, we unpack how exercise and macro tracking were the two essential components of his journey.


Wontoneggdrop has consistently exercised five to six days a week at the gym for the past two months. His regimen typically begins with a 20-30 minute bike ride, followed by a lot of switching up of exercises to keep his muscles confused, which prevents plateauing. To avoid machine workouts as much as possible, dumbbells were his go-to exercises.

Macro Tracking

Wontoneggdrop has recently added tracking his macros as part of his fat-burning journey. He aims for a ratio of 55% carbs, 24% protein, and 21% fat. However, it's worth noting that this particular ratio cannot be generalized to all since each individual is unique.

Advice for Readers

According to the advice from fellow reddit users, it's essential to follow consistent exercises over an extended period while progressing in weights each session/week. Finding a program and running it with consistency is encouraged. Additionally, it's suggested to check your macros and goals. Your carb % may be high. Based on your goal, you may need to add or subtract protein to your diet.


Wontoneggdrop's weight loss journey is a testament that a combination of regular exercise and macro tracking can lead to results. However, it's important to note that each individual's fitness journey must be carried out personalized, and that one formula does not fit all. Find what works for you and push yourself daily to achieve your fitness goals.
