Reddit user, sladeways, shares his weight loss journey and reveals the secrets to his success.

Reduced Calories

Sladeways drastically reduced his calorie intake with the help of the Lose it! app. This large deficit of calories helped him to lose weight quickly.


After walking and getting 5,000-10,000 steps per day, sladeways started hitting the gym for bodybuilding in April 2021. He works out every day, including walking on high incline for at least an hour on what he calls 'rest days.'

No More Junk Food

Prior to his transformation, sladeways admitted to eating anything he wanted. Now, he follows a strict diet, with credit to workout trainer John Meadows, who inspired him to stay motivated.


Sladeways is now down 70 pounds and his progress has inspired many others. His journey serves as a testament to the power of dedication and consistent effort. If you're looking to transform your body and improve your health, consider trying sladeways' approach by reducing your calorie intake through an app and committing to a regular workout routine.
